    I am locked out of cycle with clean light blinking green and cannot find my manual, dishwasher is about 1 year old. Is there a sequence to break this cycle? I turned off power for varying lengt5hs of time but problems persists. I tried the solution posted by "rhinostack" (heat dry normal heat dry normal cancel). It ran the 2 minutes, then opened and closed, but Clean light is still blinking and I am still locked out of the wash cycles.

    My whirlpool quite partner II is stuck because of clean light keeps blinking.

  • gcbbl Mar 13, 2009

    this fixed my blinking light problem. but i think i know what caused the blinking light . my machine now turns on but makes a hum noise when goes to wash cycle . prior my wash motor was noisy , i think it locked up now. anybody know a cheap place to get a washer pump motor for a whirlpool quiet partner I dishwasher
    any advise would be greatly appreciated. thanks

    The clean light on my Whirlpool Quiet Partner III was blinking: 7 blinks, pause, 7 more blinks. The sequence of heated dry, normal, heated dry, normal, followed by cancel worked! Thanks for posting this solution. I was looking at a counter full of dishes and an expensive service call.

    Had clean light continually blinking, did some troubleshooting and found heating element to be bad. Changed the element and light continued to blink, searched the web for some help and found the "heated dry, normal, heated dry, normal sequence to reset dishwasher to work and correct the blinking light. Thanks!!

Press:

heated dry

normal

heated dry

normal

then cancel..... wait until 2 minute cycle is done. open and close the door and make sure it is closed.

Then run another cycle. saw this on another post and it worked for me. They said that if it did not reset then either the latch has a bad connection or the heater for the water is bad.. it must register that the door is closed in order to actually start the heater for the water. I hope this helps you as well as it helped me.

Try the door switch first. This is a very easy fix if it is it. Otherwise you will kick yourself for not trying it sooner if it turns out to be the problem, trust me I know. Push in on the door when it is closed to close it tighter. If you here a click, and then another click when you release the pressure, then the switch could be your problem. Even if you don't hear a click, try this fix first. There is a double switch in the latch and the one for the heating element can be left off when the rest of the machine is on. I had this problem. I bent down the thin metal tab that the door latches onto. Bending it just a little fixed my problem. Don't bend down too much or you will keep the door from shutting properly.

When I did heated dry, normal, heated dry, normal, cancel, it did not work for me. So I did the same sequence without hitting cancel and it reset itself. Try this if the other way fails.

  • madallmy Feb 06, 2011

    Genius. Thanks. I tried this way and all the panel lights came on...it resumed 9 mins of wash cycle on its own (dont ask me why it resumes a wash cycle) and at least I hear
    water moving around...first time in two days. After its finished...I would suspect open and close and start a new cycle. Its early, but thanks. I really dislike this machine and look forward to replacing it soon, (not financially tho). :>)

  • Deborah Nov 26, 2012

    madallmy, my dishwasher is less than two years old, but it did this problem with me and of all things after thanksgiving dinner when I had a full load. I normally wash by hand when it is just dinner dishes, but I was so tired from cooking and baking for two days, and i have RA, when really tired I hurt badly when I stand for over five minutes. I did this finally today after turning off the power, unloading, reloading, and I found this, and so far so good, at least I hear water at last! So far it has not started washing fully yet, just in the first of the cycle, but like yours, all of my lights lit up across the panel, then that blinking clean light which has tormented me since thanksgiving finally went off, I did allow it to run the one cycle, it then stopped, it did not do the nine minute wash as yours did. Once it stopped, I replaced my wash pod and set it on normal wash with heated dry, and it has started to do something praise God. And I am so thankful for the help from here!

you have to hit heated dry and normal and toggle these till all the lights light up. then hit cancel . you are going to have to turn the power of and slide the dishwasher out and look directly behind the dishwasher you will see that a wire off of the heater is more than likly burned of repair the wire you should be fine. replug dishwasher in after wire is repaired. if you do not have a burned wire you have a bad heating element replace the element.

I have a kenmore ultra 665 1627. The green front panel light blinks. And we can not run a cycle. Thanks


Ah, the famous (or infamous) Clean-light blinking problem. Watch that blinking light.... Does it blink 7 times, pauses, and repeats? Or does it blink 3 times (or some other number). The most common problem is 7 blinks which means "water not heating error". This could be caused by a bad heating element, a bad thermal cutoff, a bad controller; but the most common problem is that 1 of the 2 switches inside the door latch is not getting engaged fully. This may be caused by something getting spilled (like a soda) into the door latch that is making it stick, or the door strike may be weak and not pressing down on the door latch hard enough. If it's the latch, you would need to take the door apart and remove the latch mechanism (unplug the dishwasher first!), remove the switches, and clean the plastic parts with water, dry it, and then re-assemble. The other thing to check is the door strike, which is supposed to push down the latch. The springiness of this metal part may be weak. You can remove that door strike, bend it down more, and then re-install it. Then you need to reset the controller by running a diagnostic cycle. Do that by pressing the following sequence of keys: Heated Dry - Normal - Heated Dry - Normal; or High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry; or Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry, Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry; or High Temp Wash, Heated Dry, High Temp Wash, Heated Dry). You will know that you have entered the diagnostic cycle when all the lights light up for a few seconds. Let the dishwasher run the diagnostic cycle for a few minutes, and then press Cancel to stop the dioagnostic cycle and clear the error.
Note: On some of the newer Whirlpool, Kenmore, KitchenAid dishwashers, you start the diagnostic cycle by rapidly pressing the 3 left-most keys in the following sequence: 1 2 3, 1 2 3, 1 2 3.
Good luck!

Hi
I have not seen this model in Australia, but normally if you hold down "Start/Stop" button for 3 to 5 seconds, that should clear the cycle.
Otherwise if you have a Clear button press that for 3-5 seconds.

Blinking clean light, will drain with cancel button,wont wash


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If the clean light flashes, pauses, and then repeats. When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (clean light flashes, 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

Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it will stop working and lock 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.

...all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cycle 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).

Kenmore ultra wash quiet guard 3 dishwasher problem


call sears, 1-800-4MY-HOME. They have a trouble-shooting department that will get rid of this problem. It is caused by water temperature being wrong at the start of the cycle.... blah, blah, blah. The representative will tell you to push a certain set of buttons in a certain order and that unlocks the dishwasher.

Sorry I don't know the sequence
