Try high temp scrub-sani-high temp-sani. If that's not it, remove the bottom toe panel and the tech sheet should be under there giving the sequence. Catriver

Salvy, see if you can get out of that fault by pressing, in this order within 6 seconds. Heated dry-normal-heated dry-normal. If you don't have those keys try- high temp-air dry-high temp-air dry. This is the service cycle, all lights should light up and the unit should go into a self test and clear the fault. The test lasts for about 25 minutes. Let us know it this works, back.

Clean light blinking

If the clean light blinks four times and then pauses and then blinks four times again and repeats, the problem is your pump motor. If there is water under the DW the pump clamp has probably failed and sprayed water onto and inside the motor. Call a certified Kitchen Aid repair service.

This type of unit does not drain into the outside unit. It drains into a nearby interior drain, or just to the outside near Inside unit. If the unit is cooling properly, you're ok.

Clean light flashes on my KitchenAid KUDS01DJ and it wont run

My dishwasher did the same thing. The repair guy fixed it and told us how to reset next time it happens: press: Hi temp then Energy saver then Hi Temp then Energy saver do this quickly over 5 seconds all the lights should come on Then,turn off the breaker for one minute then, go back to the dishwasher and press cancel. All the lights should turn off. Start dishwasher as usual. If the cause was just a brain fart, the dishwasher should work.

My kenmore dw just stopped running thru cycles except drain

Hello, With the information you supplied I'm going to assume the light is blinking 7 times and pausing then blinking 7 times and so on. With the door cracked open hit the following button combination: -high temp wash
-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry Then close the door and hit cancel. The pump will run for a few moments and then you should be all set. Hope this helps Mike

Clean light flashing 7 times. Can't start the machine

The cleam light blinking means that the unit was not able to reach a proper heated wash cycle. Either your heating element failed orthe actual sump/pump motor system has failed. Check the element in the botton and see if it looks broken anywhere. If you can see a broken spot, you will k now that is the trouble.

Good Luck!

Clean led keeps blinking.

salvy, look for the lock symbol, it should be on the heated dry pad. Press and hold it until the lock led turns off. back.
