Question about Dishwashers

Open Question

Kitchenaid Superba (model # KUDS01FLBL6). The light by the control lock/sanitized/clean on the control panel keeps blinking. I called Kitchenaid and they recommended turning off the circuit breaker. I did this for 5 minutes and the light is still blinking. Washer won't run. Help!! Family is in for Christmas and I can't wash everything by hand...I'll never leave the kitchen!

SOURCE: Clean Light Flashes

I found this post elsewhere. It seems to have worked for me: Our KitchenAid KUDP series dishwasher went into a mode where it would not start and would only respond to the cancel/drain button. The clean light would flash 7 times in a row, stop, and then repeat. I read that the 7 flashes indicates an error code and that the dishwasher has detected a problem in the heater element circuit. I tried to reset the error mode by turning off power for 15 minutes, however, that did not work.
We called for a repair. The service person found that the dishwasher was completely fine except that it had gone into an error mode. The technician reset the error mode and charge us $115.00.

The reset sequence used was reported to be the following:
1) Crack the door open.
2) Within 3 seconds press the following sequence - Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry, Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry
3) Close and latch the door
4) Press the cancel button (the circle with the triangle in it)

We were told the dishwasher expects to see the dish water temperature rise in a certain way. If the water does not heat in this way, the dishwasher becomes confused and thinks the heater element has failed. In deed, this happened just following and extended power failure and our hot water tank was cool. I am curious if this code will work for anybody else with the same problem and save a service call and 115 bucks. Overall, this seems to be a serious logic flaw in the design.

Whirlpool adp 6515ix dishwasher start button is flashing in 4 time cycles-what does this tell me please. None of the manuals indicate what the flashing could be signalling.


Error CodeConditionCheck/RepairShop PartsClean light blinks 7 timesHeater circuit failure. Control didn't detect the expected rise in water temperature.Check the heating element and related components (wiring and control board) in that circuit.
Heating element, Electronic control board, Thermistor, Circuit wiring
Console light blinks rapidlyThe control detects a stuck button on the control panel.A failed control panel or a malfunctioning electronic control board can cause this code. Check the buttons on the control panel using a volt/ohm meter. In most cases, the control panel must be replaced. If that doesn't solve the problem, the electronic control board might be at fault.
Control panel, Electronic control board
Start/Resume light blinks slowlyIf the dishwasher door is opened or power is interrupted during the cycle, the dishwasher won't start again until the door is detected as closed and the Start/Resume button is pressed.Check the door latch and switch assembly. A failure in the Start/Resume button also can cause this problem.
Door switch assembly, Control panel, Electronic control board
Clean light stays onThe dishwasher won't start a new cycle unless it detects that the door opened after the previous cycle.Turn off power to the dishwasher by shutting off the breaker and restarting. If that does not work, the door switch assembly is stuck and must be replaced.

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.)

How do I turn off the childproof lock on my KitchenAid Superbua dishwasher?


This depends on the exact model of the KitchenAid Superba dishwasher. There is a button on the control panel that will indicate the Control Panel Lock. Usually this is labeled Control Lock (Hold 3 sec) or 4 Hour Delay (Control Lck 3 Sec). The phrase in parentheses is below the key in a smaller font.

Press and hold the button to toggle the lock on and off. Sometimes you have to hold it for more than the listed 3 seconds.

I hope this helps.

(my reference was the manual for the KitchenAid KUDE40FXSP . Other KitchenAid appliance manuals are available here: http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/product_literature/search.jsp?siteCd=KAD . Just enter the model number and the type of person researching the documentation (consumer).)

Clean light keeps blinking and washer will not function. Cancel runs the pump for 2 minute, but the blinking light keeps going with no functions working.


if the clean light is blinking that mean you dishwasher is having a heater issue. it is an error code. either your control board is bad or the heater or the ntc therm. if you take the bottom panel off you will see or should see a tech sheet that will tell you how to clear the error code or this website will help you. just enter your model number http://servicematters.com/docs/wiring/wiring_main.htm
