This may help in your situation. The following link explains how you may be able to clear the blinking clean light problem:

Now, keep in mind all dish washers are not alike and have different panel options. If you do not have the same set up that I have mentioned, the tech sheet for your dishwasher will explain the touch pad functions. The tech sheet is located behind the lower toe panel under the door and lists the proper sequence of buttons to push for diagnostics and troubleshooting.

NOTE: Sometimes the tech sheet is located behind the inner door panel. You will need to remove the screws securing the inner panel to access it if this is the case. Make sure you turn off the main power breaker before doing so.

Sometimes this can be a momentary glitch in operation. However, if the problem keeps reoccuring the number of flashes is an indication of which circuit is causing your problem. Again, refer to your tech sheet to determine this.

SOURCE: My Kenmore diswasher gets stuck between the quick rinse and drying cycle

I am having the same issue as described above. I think it is either the timer, thermostat (temp assure), or thermostat (temp boost) that needs replacing. The dial gets stucks in both the wash temp boost cycle and rinse temp boost cycle. However, I don't have a picture of the temp assure or boost part. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks. -Bill

SOURCE: Hi, I have a model 587 kenmore dishwasher which

Assuming the water supply is on to the unit, check for a bad, stuck or clogged water fill valve. Some have a screen that can get plugged. You will need to turn off the water supply, remove the front lower cover, drain any remaining water out of the machine with a shallow pan, and then check the fill valve. You will probably have to remove it to do this. If you aren't comfortable with this kind of service, it's best to call a repair shop.

Another csue of this could be a problem with the dishwasher control board, but again, it's more advisable to have it checked by a repair shop.

Do you hear a 'click' when it is supposed to start filling the machine--if not, then the water inlet solenoid has likely failed. Make sure the water is turned on under the sink and there are no kinks in the supply hose. Hope this helps!

Kenmore elite dishwasher stops in mid cycle green clean light flashes 8 times pauses and then flashes one more time


Float Switch

The float switch may be hung up and this can cause the dishwasher to be stuck in a cycle. see the diagram

Timer / Control

If your dishwasher gets stuck in a cycle first try shutting off the breaker for at least 5 minutes if this does not correct the problem you will need to replace timer/electronic control.

My kenmore elite model # 665.15934000 quit working in mid cycle. Now I do not have any lights on the control panel. The breaker is on. What could be the problem? Doug


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If the cycle doesn't complete, then the first thing that should be checked is the Timer and then the heating element. Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Thanks

We recently purchased a home with an intermatic model EJ500 timer. It does not work. Changed batteries - screen does not light up. Breaker checked and working. Nothing happens when press next/on/off and...


EJ500 has 1 year warranty. The reset button sits naturally lower than other buttons.

The manual shows troubleshooting.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-ej500c-manual.pdf

If timer is blank: display bulb burned out; press next/on/off, other timer or switch has turned off power to EJ500.

Maybe a new timer is needed. ST01C (1 year) & EI600 (5 year warranty) each offer same 40-programs per week.

Timers shown above are battery operated, and cannot operate load farther than 100' from timer.

EI500 & GE 15086 offer 7 programs per week ... 7 on events and 7 off events.

Kenmore Dishwasher 587.15163401 knob stuck mid-cycle


See if it is stuck on a water heat cycle. if the heater circuit or the thermostat is not working properly it will continue to run looking for a rise in temperature. If these are in working order the timer it self could be sticking and not advancing.
