Question about Kenmore 24 in. 15142 Built-in Dishwasher
Kenmore Elite Dishwasher model 665.16262402 has the clean light indicator flashing and it won't let me start a new load. Normally the light is on steady when a load is clean. Once the door is opened and shut again, the light normally goes out. It now flashes 7 times, pauses for a few seconds and then starts the 7 flash cycle again. I've tried pressing every button to cancel it out. I've shut off the power for about 10 minutes hoping any stray trons would go away.
That means the control sensed that the heater in the d/w did not operate 3 times in a row. so the unit locks out. First remove the kick plate and you may have to pull the unit out from under the cab, but check your heater. use a meter to see if it reads open, if so order a heater assy it will come with a new control replace it to. If your heater checks good press in sequence normal wash , heat dry ,normal wash,heat dry , normal wash , heat dry three times within 6 sec all the lights will come on then hit cancel. What that did is reset the control and clear that fault. Keep in mind that d/w does not heat it's own water your incoming water temp should be 120. the d/w will maintain that temp. when starting your d/w first turn on your hot water till it gets hot then start your d/w this insures your unit fills with hot water and not cold
