Re: 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.

Dishwasher stops when starting to fill

Your dishwasher is equipped with a leakage sensor located at the bottom center of the unit underneath. If any water is detected, the sensor shuts down power until the problem is corrected. Check underneath FIRST to make SURE there is no water dribbling from a small leak. Look for telltale residue trails left from evaporated water on the hoses, lines, motors, etc.
You can enter diagnostic mode by pressing and holding for 2 seconds the POWER, HEAVY, AND DELICATE BUTTONS. All the l.e.d. s will be lit for 2 seconds, then the software version will be displayed in binary code by the blinking of the WASH, DRY, CLEAN, AND CHILD LOCK l.e.d. s. Next, and this will take some practice, if there are error codes present(sets of blinking lights) you will have to read them to be able to find out where the problem(s) is.

•Press the Heavy + Delicate + Power buttons at the same time for two seconds to enter Service Test Mode.
•All LEDs are displayed for the first two seconds and then Software version will be indicated in Binary Code using LEDS ....Wash / Dry / Clean/Child Lock
•Just like the DMR series you advance through the test next mode by pressing the Normal button . However each test will run by itself (see sequence chart on next page) when test has completed an led will light to indicate test is done and you can then advance to the next test .
•Code list and descriptions located on pp#3. Note: Like the DMR series the codes are displayed during operation or test modes and are not stored in memory.

Frigidaire FFBD2406NW0A then clean wash drying and 4 hour led lights are blinking

I appreciate your post, friend!

I understand that the clean, wash, and dry buttons on your Frigidaire dishwasher are blinking along with the four LED light. This appears to be a delay start cycle. I would recommend pressing the cancel button. If that does not clear the lights you can perform a reset and to do that you would need to disconnect power from the dishwasher for roughly ten minutes. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

On kitchen aid dishwasher, control lock is blinking and preventing the use of any other execute buttons. Can't start a wash .

Which model KitchenAid dishwasher do you have? On some models, the Control Lock can be toggled on/off by holding the Energy Saver Dry touch pad for at least 4 seconds or until the Control Lock light turns on or off.

On another model, the touch pad to press and hold is the 4 Hour Delay button. (On that model, you press and hold for 3+ seconds.) There is often a very tiny label below or on the touchpad indicating which key controls the Control Lock.

If you haven't held the button for long enough, pressing the other touch pads will lead to the Control Lock light blinking 3 times if the Control Lock is active.

If the press and hold method still doesn't work after several attempts, then you may have a problem with the control panel. The dishwasher may need repair.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model number so that I can check if a different touch pad key is the correct one for the Control Lock.

(the Control Lock feature keeps the dishwasher settings from being changed accidently or the unit started when it isn't needed. This can stop a child from resetting the dishwasher or the unit being started while you clean it.)

My "3 Sec" button is

The control touchpads can be locked to prevent unwanted use. If this feature is activated between cycles, the dishwasher cannot be operated until the controls are unlocked.

The indicator tells you that the controls have been locked to prevent kids from messing with them.

Press and hold the "3 Sec" (control lock) button continuously for 3-5 seconds. That should clear the lock.Now you can use the controls normally.

To re-enable the control lock, press and hold the control lock button continuously for 3-5 seconds, until it indicates locked.

''Clean'' light is blinking, ''Cancel'' does not reset the cycle.

If the clean light flashes 7 times, pauses, then repeats...

When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (clean light flashes 7 times, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.

To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...

-high temp wash
-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry

...all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle finish (1-2 minutes).
You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.

If the issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit (ie. element, thermostat or wiring).
It rarely happens but it could also be the door switch not engaging properly when the door is closed (slightly bend the door latch down making sure it doesn't hit the door when you close it).

Good luck!
