Question about Kenmore 24 in. 15932 Built-in Dishwasher
I had it on delay start last night. This morning is was flashing "clean", but the dishes hadn't been washed. I can't get the light to clear off. I can "cancel" and it goes through the drain cycle, but when done after opening the door to reload, then trying to start, it does nothing.
Clean light found to be flashing (7 flash intervals), on pressiing cancel cycle, machine drains and continues green light flashing, cannot stop it flashing, machine will not do anything,
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
-high temp wash
...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).
