Question about Kenmore 24 in. 17012 Built-in Dishwasher
And the manual says to call the repair service and have them check the 'heater circuit'. Of course this machine has two, for heating the water, and for drying. Any ideas where to look for the problem? The annoying thing is that we never use the heating element to dry dishes, to save energy. But it may be that the sensor does not allow the machine to work if it malfunctions?
Try this: fill the machine with cold water from your garden hose and start it up. the machine should recognize the water full condition and continue to start washing. wait about 7 minutes and stop it. open the door. did the water heat?

Tips for a great answer:
If clean light is blinking then it may be an
issue with heater circuit, door switch or wash pump, please reset the power to
the dishwasher. After, 5 minutes check if you are still getting the same error.
If yes, then it is a water heating fault. To resolve this error try pressing
this reset sequence-- Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal or High Temp - Air
Dry - High Temp - Air Dry or Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry, Hi Temp Scrub,
energy saver dry or high temp wash-heated dry-high temp wash-heated dry. Now let the unit run for 2-3 minutes and then you press
the Cancel/Drain button and allow it to completely drain and reset. If this
doesn't work then it's an issue with the wash pump not pumping the water past
the heater efficiently or due to lack of water to heat. Please make sure that
heater is not open circuited and is heating the water efficiently. You'll have
to check the heater using a multimeter; the meter should read between 3000 to
3300 ohms (Use multimeter on Rx1 ohm setting). If heater is fine then make sure
water pressure is optimum and fill valve is working fine. Hope this helps...
