Question about Kenmore 24 in. 17052 / 17054 / 17059 Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

Dishwasher will not start.

The clean light blinks 7 times, pauses and then blinks 7 times. Repeat.
Last night, on delay mode, it did not seem to go through all the cycles. For the last 2 weeks it had been making a loud noise on the rinse and wash cycles. The panel is working and no matter what butons are pushed, the start button will not start the dishwasher.
Thanks,
Teddy

SOURCE: Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher LIghts are blinking....

I just read this for the same problem: push sanitize, then heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, cancel, then open and close the door. It worked. The dishwasher is running correctly even as I type this.

SOURCE: Clean light keeps blinking and I can't start a new cycle

That is a comon problem with that model. It is not sensing a temperature change in the water.

Push i believe it is heated dry and sani rinse going back and fourth between the two to clear the code and see if you can get it to complete a cycle. If it doesnt call sears and schedule service there is a service flash repair that should not cost you anything to repair the unit.

SOURCE: blinking clean light

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

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.

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 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).

SOURCE: Dishwasher making loud noise during wash cycle

It's noisy If your dishwasher seems noisy, check these:

Water-inlet valve
Motor
Heater fan
Pump
Water-inlet valve An aging water-inlet valve can sometimes fail slowly, rather than all at once. It can shudder on and off rapidly, causing the incoming water lines to shake, rumble, and rattle--sometimes violently. If yours is doing this, replace the inlet valve. 

Motor If it's the motor that's noisy, either of these may be the "culprit:"

  • As motor bearings wear out, they can become quite loud when the motor runs. They wear out quickly if they frequently get wet, because the water washes away the motor bearing grease. Bearings can get wet if the spin seal is defective. Then there will also be water leaking onto the floor beneath the dishwasher. Replace the seal if it leaks (read about the main tub seal in the "It leaks" section, later).


  • If, from beneath the dishwasher, you can see a round, plastic disc that's mounted to the top of the motor (a "slinger"), it may have broken free of the motor shaft. If so, it could be rattling around the shaft while the motor is running. If that's the problem, you need to replace the motor.


Heater fan If the heater fan bearings are rusted or worn, they may squeal, or scrape loudly during the drying cycle. If this is the problem, replace the fan motor. Alternatively, the fan blade may be loose. If so, you need to replace it.

Pump Small fruit pits, toothpicks, and fragments of glass sometimes get stuck in the pump. When this happens, open the pump and remove the debris. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. 

To get to the pump, you usually need to remove the lower rack, the spray arms, and the spray arm support from the inside of your dishwasher. A dishwasher pump isn't obvious. Look for an impeller--a round, plastic fan blade-type device that spins around and pushes the water toward the drain. When you can see the drain impeller, you should be able to see the clogging debris.
thanks and accept the solution accordingly

Clean light keeps blinking and I cannot get dishwasher to start cleaning dishes. It seems to be hung up.


If it blinks 7 times, then pauses, then 7 times....over & over, then the computer control has failed to see an increase in water temperature during the last cycle. That means the heater could be out, the temperature sensor is out, the heater drive circuit is bad, there is not enough water or the water is not circulating properly. The newer models have different blink sequences that mean other things. On most models you can press hi temp wash>heated dry>hi temp wash>heated dry in quick succession to enter a service mode. All the lights will come on, then after the control clicks a few times, just press cancel & the control will be reset & you can run another cycle. If it does the same thing again at the end of the next cycle, it will need repairs.

Clean light blinking will not start


Count how many times it blinks before it pauses and repeats. If it's 7 times, then it is a very common problem, and you can find the solution by searching for "dishwaser clean light blinking 7 times".

Clean light blinks, dishwasher won't run.


It is telling you that it needs to be cleaned. Remove and clean all filters.
If still a problem contact manufacturer. Most people think that a "cleaning" machine won't get dirty but they do, as bits of food etc get circulated and build up on the filters. These have to be cleaned every now and then.

Clean light blink, dishwasher not working


Does it blink 7 times pause then repeat if so then have a heating problem control does not detect a temperature rise, don't know your technical expertise I ohm out heater at the control easier than pulling out the machine just look for continuity means heater is good if none you'll have to reach under unit to make sure you do not have a burned wire to heater if heater is good ohm out thermistor at room temp should be between 50-70 thousand ohms very seldom does this part go bad but i had one so check it last if both parts check good then the electronic control is not outputting 120VAC to the heater.
