The blinking "clean light" is a common problem with some of the Kenmore and Whirlpool models dishwashers. The problem is usually attributed to water supply temperatures being too low when filling. Apparently, there are some issues with the temperature sensing circuits in some dishwashers that causes an error code to be generated if a certain water temperature is not achieved in a specified time interval (this time may differ between models). There is a reset sequence that you can try to clear the fault. Push the NORMAL WASH then HEATED DRY buttons in that sequence two to three times. The unit will enter diagnostics mode, but can be stopped by pressing the CANCEL button. This will clear any existing faults and should return the dishwasher to normal operation.

To keep the fault from returning, it is recommended that you run your hot water faucet in the kitchen until it runs hot BEFORE you start the dishwasher. This will heat the water in the supply line for the dishwasher (most dishwashers are fed from the kitchen sink supply line). The theory is that if you fill the dishwasher with hot water from the start of the wash cycle instead of the cool water that is normally in the lines (especially if you have a hot water tank located far away from the kitchen), this should satisfy the requirements of the temperature sensing circuits. If the fault reappears, there should be a tech sheet located inside the lower panel under the door that explains what the fault is. The flashing light will be a series of flashes, followed by a pause. If you indeed have a component problem, it will depend on the number of flashing lights in the sequence. Refer to the tech sheet to determine WHAT component is affected and how to troubleshoot.

Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.Are any of the cycle lights lighting up like rinse and normal and is the light on front blinking and pausing if so how many times is it blinking? Try turning the power off too the unit for five minutes and back on, because if the lid was open some or was stuck it can stop the unit from running.
Thank You and please ACCEPT my answer and Rate my answer if it was helpful..

Blinking "Normal" light on a Maytag model


Hi


Open the door. Within 3 seconds press the following sequence --Try pressing normal wash, heated dry, normal wash, heated dry, normal wash, heated dry three times within 6 seconds and then press cancel to reset the dishwasher. If that doesn't help then try pressing Saini Rinse, Heated Dry, Saini Rinse, Heated Dry, Saini Rinse, Heated Dry or Saini Rinse, Air Dry, Saini Rinse, Air Dry, Saini Rinse, Air Dry 3 times in 6 seconds and then the Cancel Button. Close the door and press Cancel.
Blinking lights would stop and should be able to use your dishwasher normally. If the light is still blinking try and reset the power to the dishwasher and try again. If still the light is blinking then check for the connections on the keypad, it may be due to moisture or shorted connections on keypad.



Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Kitchenaid kud101tj "cancel drain" light and "Rinse Only" lights are falhing and DW won't start???


Don't know if this will help, but when I had problems with my control panel (lights blinked and nothing worked) I fixed it by disconnecting the power completly from the dishwasher at the fuse box. Leave it off 10 or 15 minutes and then repower. That reset mine and it worked again...has happened several times and each time I could fix it by cutting the power. If that doesn't work, you may need a new control panel.

Seems like you have a keyboard error as well.

:)

The same is true for your diswasher - the main controller has failed, and requires replacement.

Try the following resets first...

If the light is constantly blinking vs blinking a set number of time and then starting over again it can indicate that one of the buttons are stuck. Which can cause the light to constantly flash. You may have to change out the control button.
If it's blinking a set number of times, try doing this keystroke sequence.
  • Crack the door open.
  • Within 3 seconds press the following sequence - Hi Temp Scrub - Air Dry - Hi Temp Scrub - Air Dry
  • Close and latch the door
  • Press the cancel button

  • One other sequence you can try would be
    sani rinse--air dry--sani rinse--air dry

    Otherwise, with the constant blinking of the light then you may have to change out the control panel.

    HOWEVER - before replacing the board - keep in mind there is a design flaw with this dishawasher - the vent is directly below the control panel, and you are likely to experience this again in the near future.

    it may be worth the investment of the repair cost toward a new washer - as the board is at LEAST $145 plus labor if you do not want to do yourself.

    If you are inclined to replace it yourself - please reply with the exact model #, and I can refer you to a parts source.

    Thanks for using FixYa!!

    Try turning off the power to the dishwasher at the circuit breaker box. leave the power off for 5 10 mins and then turn breaker back on and try to restart dishwasher. This may reset the board and it may work
