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
-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 cycle 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).

Clean light blinking


If the clean light blinks four times and then pauses and then blinks four times again and repeats, the problem is your pump motor. If there is water under the DW the pump clamp has probably failed and sprayed water onto and inside the motor. Call a certified Kitchen Aid repair service.

Clean light blinks, dishwasher won't run.


It is telling you that it needs to be cleaned. Remove and clean all filters.
If still a problem contact manufacturer. Most people think that a "cleaning" machine won't get dirty but they do, as bits of food etc get circulated and build up on the filters. These have to be cleaned every now and then.

Clean light blinks on whirlpool dishwasher won't run


When the light flashes 7 times it means there is/was a problem with the hot water, including a bad heater element. Flip the breaker for a minute and hopefully that will clear the error; otherwise, here's a website that will take you through resetting it.

Seems like you just need to run a cleaning cycle on the printer. Both lights flashing means you have printed a high volume of cards without cleaning the printer. Please purchase cleaning kit 105909-169 to clean your printer.

Cleaning light will not quit blinking after cleaning


The same thing happened to our Mr. Coffee this week! I followed the instructions about running vinegar through, then rinsing several times with water. However, the light would not stop blinking. We did by-pass the light by setting the timer for delayed brewing and it worked. However, that blinking light came on again. Then, my husband tired the vinegar wash again but instead of doing it one time, he ran the same vinegar through 6 times until the light went out! Then he proceeded with the water rinse. Our Mr. Coffee is working again!

QuietGuard3: Clean light flashing 7 times? Press Heated Dry, press Normal Wash, then press Heated Dry again and press Normal Wash again (that's 4 button-presses) and that should fix it.
