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.

Here's a link for the repair manual for your dishwasher:
Concentration should be on Chapter 2 subsection 2-3 "No Fill"
Then go to Chapter 6; subsections 6-2, 6-3, 6-3a, 6-3b, 6-3c, and 6-3h for testing procedures on relays, actuator valves, etc.

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.

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 light flashing 7 times. Can't start the machine

For KitchenAid Whirlpool KUDS01FLSS0 -- When the clean light is blinking or flashing 7 times in a row and no other front panel controls will work, do the following:
push SaniRinse-EnergySaverDry- SaniRinse - Energy Saver Dry
(Try the Heated Dry button if you don't have a Energy Saver Dry button)
All the lights will then come on as this will put the unit into diagnostic mode.
Then, push Cancel after about 10 seconds. You are no longer locked out. Run the dishwasher normally.

Open the dishwasher door, press in rapid sequence the following keys: Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry, High Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry. Close the door until it latches and press the Cancel key. The machine should reset itself. It worked for me when I had the same problem
