SOURCE: 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).

This is commen with these. you need to take the door and remove the screws around it. You need to gain access to the controller. on the controller you will see a white peice with 2 balck wires going to it that is your fuse. replace this and that will solve your problem.

SOURCE: kenmore dishwasher ultra was quiet guard 3 model

that would be model # 66516012403 correct??
you may have inadvertently set the lock on function..
check this out from your manual...

Lock On
Use the Lock On to prevent unintended use of the dishwasher
between cycles. You can also use the lock feature to prevent
unintended cycle or option changes during a cycle.
When LOCK ON is lit, all buttons are disabled.
NOTE: The dishwasher door can be opened while the controls
are locked. However, the lock must be turned off and the Start/
Resume button pressed to resume the cycle.
To turn on the Lock
Press and hold HEATED DRY for 4 seconds. LOCK ON glows.
If you press any pad while your dishwasher is locked, the light
flashes 3 times.
NOTE: If the Heated Dry option is selected, the light will
temporarily turn off until Lock On glows.
To turn off the Lock
Press and hold HEATED DRY for 4 seconds. The light turns off.

hope this helps,
best of luck,
ttfn

Error 1 on kenwood dishwasher


Hello.
Manufactured by Whirlpool, Kenmore dishwashers have an electronic control panel that must be unlocked in order to set or make changes to your dishwashing cycle. If an error light is blinking on your dishwasher's control panel, the panel must be reset before you can gain access. Blinking lights on your dishwasher control panel may signal a mechanical problem that needs to be repaired. If the lights continue to blink after you've reset the control panel, contact Sears to service your Kenmore dishwasher or consider troubleshooting the appliance yourself.
1Press and hold the "Heated Dry" button on your Kenmore dishwasher for four seconds to unlock the dishwasher control panel.
2 Press the "Heated Dry," "Normal Wash," "Heated Dry" and "Normal Wash" buttons one after the other, in fairly quick succession.
3 Wait for the dishwasher to run a short diagnostic test.
4 Press the "Cancel/Drain" button at the end of the diagnostic test cycle. This should reset the control panel on your Kenmore dishwasher.

Thanks.

How to reset control panel on model 587.1517 kenmore dish washer


From what I have read elsewhere, the interrupt *may* have something to do with a thermostat circuit cutting out if the entry hot water is too high ( more than 145F) - it seems like a buggy safety feature i.e. the circuit board thinks that the water heater is overheating. The makers have apparently made changes to the control board to fix this bug but it costs serious $$$ to get a repairman in and buy the new board.

I prefer to use the reset code, and keep my water temp lower when using it.

I have a kenmoer 66516039402 dishwasher. It is stuck in clean mode the clean light just flashes and the dishwasher will not start a new wash.what can I do to fix it.


Re: clean light blinks seven times on Kenmore Dishwasher model # 66516034401

After reading online and studying the parts diagram/list (included with paperwork that came with washer) and troubleshooting guide/wiring schematic (located under the bottom front kick panel) I determined it could only be 5 things, all easy to look at and check when you pull out the dishwasher (remove racks first and cut power via the circuit breaker).

They are heating element, wiring check for burn marks/melting), high limit thermostat (mounted on bottom of tub against tub, detects if tub overheats), thermistor (screw in mount near motor, detects process temp inside dishwasher, and the control panel. Unfortunately, I started buying and replacing the parts piecemeal (first high limit thermostat, then thermistor, then heating element, even though it tested good). Only then did I remove the panel (top 6 screws inside door, no need to remove the whole door panel) and check the circuit board. After separating the circuit board from its plastic case that covers the back of the board, I saw that the back of the board was badly burned/blackened about the size of a fifty cent piece around the heater circuit relay (this was not visible from the front). Bingo. I should have done a comprehensive check first and save $100 on parts that were probably good. When ordering online, the circuit board part was changed, perhaps to an improved part if the relay burning out is a common problem. Good luck.

I need to reset my Kenmore Elite dishwasher but i don't know how.


Hello,

follow the below instructions:

Unlock your Kenmore dishwasher control panel by pressing and holding the "Heated Dry" button for four seconds.

Press a series of four buttons in quick succession. Press "Heated Dry," "Normal Wash," "Heated Dry" and "Normal Wash" to instruct your Kenmore dishwasher to run a short diagnostic test

Wait for two minutes while your Kenmore dishwasher runs its diagnostic test.

Press the "Cancel/Drain" button once your dishwasher has completed its diagnostic test. This should reset your dishwasher control panel and stop the "Clean" light from blinking repeatedly.
Good luck.

I have a Kenmore dishwasher 66517033400 that has a flashing green clean light. The light is flashing 7 times per cycle.


This information may help in your situation. The following link explains how you may be able to clear the blinking clean light problem:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r417123-blinking_clean_light_kenmore_whirlpool

Now, keep in mind all dish washers are not alike and have different panel options. If you do not have the same set up that I have mentioned, the tech sheet for your dishwasher will explain the touch pad functions. The tech sheet is located behind the lower toe panel under the door and lists the proper sequence of buttons to push for diagnostics and troubleshooting.

NOTE: Sometimes the tech sheet is located behind the inner door panel. You will need to remove the screws securing the inner panel to access it if this is the case. Make sure you turn off the main power breaker before doing so.

Sometimes this can be a momentary glitch in operation. However, if the problem keeps reoccuring the number of flashes is an indication of which circuit is causing your problem. Again, refer to your tech sheet to determine this.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you solve your problem.

Own a Kenmore 665 dishwasher. The clean light is flashing (7 times) and the machine won't run. Have pulled the control panel and checked the door latch switches and they appear fine. No obvious burned...


It sensed a problem in the heater circuit. try this sequence to reset the code. If it comes back again you will have to determine a cause.

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)

The cleaning LED flashing and dishwater not working


The blinking clean light is an indication of a malfunction. Which circuit is causing the problem is determined by the number of flashes. Sometimes these error codes can be erroneous, however. If you wish to reset the light to see if you have a glitch, or a legitimate problem, the following link may offer you some assistance:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r417123-blinking_clean_light_kenmore_whirlpool

If the error reappears you will need to refer to the tech sheet that comes with your appliance. The sheet is usually located inside the lower toe panel under the door.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

PS Your dishwasher may have a different series of buttons to push to reset the error, but the steps are similar. If you do not have the same configuration as outlined in the link I provided, refer to your tech sheet.

Kenmore Dishwasher Model 665.1622Clean light is flashing, Use and care guide says when this happens the dishwasher has malfunctioned. Call for service. There must be a simple fix?


This happens if the water temp sensor is not seeing a temp rise in a specific time. Make sure you run hot water to sink before using. This problem is often caused by a bad heater. This can be checked from the control board in console. You need to access schematic to determine what wires to check at board. This tech sheet is supposed to be behind lower access panel. If you run diagnostics as specified in tech sheet this will reset light.
UNPLUG UNIT BEFORE REMOVING PANELS!!
If does again have heater circuit checked..
