SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: Kenmore Ultra Wash dishwasher

check and see if you are getting ac 110 volts to your water vave when trying to start the unit. if no power check your breakers and /or the incoming power to your dishwasher if they are ok and show 110 voltage coming to the unit then you probably have a control board or touchpad problem which would need a little more detailed check out.
If you do have ac 110 to your water valve then you may just have a bad water valve. Because the washer has to fill first. Hope that helps!!

SOURCE: IDL705 dishwasher showing error code

Indesit IDL700 first two green lights flashing and cycle stops with dirty water left in the machine. CAUSE - blocked or jammed drain pump. SOLUTION - First remove all the filters inside the machine, syphon or sponge up all the water in the sump and check for any obstruction over the fine grill at the very bottom. (we had a pistachio shell covering the hole!). If this doesn't cue it you will need to gain access to the pump. First, turn off the power. Gently lift the machine onto it's side (be ready for some water to spill out!). Remove the bottom plate (6 screws) and disconnect the sump float switch. Remove the single screw retaining the pump to the bottom of the machine and rotate to remove. You should be able to see the rotor blades. With your finger check to see if the pump rotates freely. To dismantle the pump, remove the 3 screws and separate the two halves. Our pump was jammed with an apple stalk!. Reassemble and connect any cables. Apparently this is a known problem with these machines and can be prevented by assembling the filter system correctly and pre-rinsing plates etc. before placing in the dishwasher.

SOURCE: The clean light in my Kenmore dishwasher keeps

It has to do with the water temperture, either the water entering the dishwasher is too cold and the heater can't get it up to temp, or the heater unit has problems... Push the Air dry ,then the sani wash buttons a few times and all the lights will light, it resets the computer .

Kenmore dishwasher won't restart, green light flashes 7 times


Unless you have already tried the fix on this site, please see if you can reset your dishwasher. It appears to be linked to dishwasher not being able to heat water to correct wash temperature.

Kenmore Dishwasher 665 16059401 - Control lights flashing Not working


Hi Have you tried resetting your house breaker to your dishwasher, by turning it off for 60 secs. then back on again? this should reset your dishwasher. By Start can you hear the pump out. or can you hear water filling the dishwasher?..if it only pumps out..it may be the Overfill protector. Check to make sure the overfill protector moves up and down freely. The overfill protector is located in the left front corner of the tub it looks like a little hat. it should move up and down easily. and you should feel/hear a click that is your float switch. also check the Door latch. Open and close the door to make sure the door latch is securely fastened. Next you may take off the console, and reset that control board to keypad console connector , by taking that loose and reconnect it. If that doesn't work, then you may need a new keypad console assembly. let me know what you are doing to do? I can help you somemore.

I too had problems with the Kenmore Elite (aka Bosch). The issue was solved by replacing the Lock Sensor on the door. After replacing the sensor the dishwasher has been working. Hope this helps.

Normal wash lite flashing


Hi, try pushing Normal Wash - Heated Dry - Normal Wash - Heated Dry. This should enter the diagnostics cycle and reset any faults. If it will not reset or enter the diagnostics cycle then the door latch assembly must not be engaging when you close it. You will need to check the door latch to make sure that the switches are engaging. If they are not, you will need to replace the door latch switch assembly.

Kenmore dishwasher, model 665.170 344 01. "Clean" light keeps flashing and will not stop. Have tried everything in the manual and the light still will not stop flashing.


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

If 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).

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).
