Question about Kenmore 24 in. 15932 Built-in Dishwasher
The dishwasher is a Kenmore Ultra Wash Quiet guard 3 (white) I started, thought it washed and completed a the cycle but when I went to get the dishes out. The dished had not been washed and the light on the panel was blinking clean. I am not sure if someone had opened it to put something in it and didn't close it all the way or what. I tried canceling it and such and nothing would work and clean light would continue to blink. I even tried shutting of the breaker for an extended period of time but the clean button still bllinks. The Clean light keeps blinking and I can't start a new cycle. I can't find the solution described by others that worked. I did push Normal/Heated Dry twice; then High temp/normal twice. No luck. My dishwasher is a Kenmore Model # 665.13832K601. Thanks for any help. This dishwasher was brand new in June.
That is a comon problem with that model. It is not sensing a temperature change in the water.
Push i believe it is heated dry and sani rinse going back and fourth between the two to clear the code and see if you can get it to complete a cycle. If it doesnt call sears and schedule service there is a service flash repair that should not cost you anything to repair the unit.

I had the same flashing light problem first the normal wash flashing light then the others. I tried shuting of the breakers but nothing. I tried resetting the panel by pushing normal wash and heated dry simultaneously and nothing. So I took the six screws holding the front panel out and unplugged the ribbon type wires and plug and unplugged it several times to help make a better contact and I was able to get it to work right away. This may not work for all but I worked for me. It is very easy to do and it's worth a try if you're having the same problem. It took me less then 10 minutes. I had the problem for several days and could not use the dishwasher not mater what tried until I did what I described above. Now I have to see how long it lasts.

The sequence of "Press Heated Dry, press Normal Wash, then press Heated Dry again and press Normal Wash again (that's 4 button-presses)" worked for us. Many thanks!

Okay, on my D/W it was Hi temp/Normal, Hi temp/Normal. I turned up the temp on my hot water tank and that worked for about 6 months or so. Then it got louder and louder and I’m back to the green blinking light. Now it fills, Goes through some of its cycles, I hear a loud popping sound, and then it drains. I think the heating element or motor is gone, Any suggestion??

I have a Quiet Guard 4. Same problem so will describe my solution.
1. Remove bottom basket. Remove top basket.
2. Remove bottom washing arm. Unscrew (Gently but firmly) the centre post. Lift arm assembly up and out.
3. Remove overhead conduit. One screw at back, one at top (Philips #2 bit). Rotate whole assembly 45 deg right (Clockwise) and lift off of centre post.
4. Remove centre post (Pull straight up). Remove 4 screws (Star T-20 bit). Lift whole assembly out. Pop off screen and clean.
5. Remove cap over cutter/chopper. There is a single screw at front left (under assembly removed in 4). Remove screw (Star T-15 bit) and cap (Needs some wiggling to free it up). Remove cutter and filter. It is on a spring loaded pin. Pull the cutter blade foreward and then the filter disc straight up. Clean thoroughly as it may be the cause of your problems.
Reassimble. Good luck!

Thanks for using FixYa. That means the control sensed that the heater in the D/W did not operate 3 times in a row. So the unit locks out. First remove the kick plate and you may have to pull the unit out from under the cab, but check your heater. Use a meter to see if it reads open; if so orders a heater assay it will come with a new control replace it too. If heater checks good then press in sequence normal wash, heat dry, normal wash, heat dry, normal wash, heat dry three times within 6 sec and all the lights will come on then hit cancel. What that did is reset the control and clear that fault. Keep in mind that D/W does not heat its own water and incoming water temp should be 120. The D/W will maintain that temp. When starting your D/W first turn on your hot water till it gets hot then start your D/W this ensures your unit fills with hot water and not cold
Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.
