SOURCE: clean light flashes

You will have to reset the console. To do this, close 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.

SOURCE: clean light blinks 7 times continuously

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

When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks 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. Let it go through the diagnostic to test the function of the element.(1-2 minutes). When it finishes, open the door and touch the element to see if it is hot (be careful, it can get pretty hot so wet your fingers to avoid burns).
Once the diagnostic has cleared, you should 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).

Good luck!

Maytag dishwasher MDB8959AWS2 blinks 7 times and will not work, what is the code to reset.


Try the instructions listed at this site. If the problem still occurs after the reset it is usually the heater element that might be faulty.

Clean light blinking will not start


Count how many times it blinks before it pauses and repeats. If it's 7 times, then it is a very common problem, and you can find the solution by searching for "dishwaser clean light blinking 7 times".

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.

I have a kenmore Utrawash dishwasher and the clean button is flashing


Ah, the famous (or infamous) Clean-light blinking problem. Watch that blinking light.... Does it blink 7 times, pauses, and repeats? Or does it blink 3 times (or some other number). The most common problem is 7 blinks which means "water not heating error". This could be caused by a bad heating element, a bad thermal cutoff, a bad controller.

WILL NOT START


Does it blink 7 times pause then repeat if so either the heating element is open or wire burnt off bad thermistor very rare or a bad electronic control if it hasn't been removed the technical sheet is located in a plastic pouch on the panel below the door on inside you will have to remove the outer door panel to perform component checks

Clean light blinks


clean light blinks is a form of error codes. The most common is a heater circuit error, 7 times then a pause is the heater. to clear the code press the heated dry then normal in a key dance 4 times. this starts a diagnostic cycle, takes several min to complete. let it run. it will work until it sees the fault again. this code is caused when the main control does not read a water temp increase 3 times in a row. If this continues call for service.

The clean light on kenmore dishwasher elite keeps blinking and will not stop


That blinking light is trying to tell you that there is something wrong with your dishwasher. Watch that blinking light.... Does it blink 7 times, pauses, and repeats? Or does it blink 3 times (or some other number). The most common problem is 7 blinks which means "water not heating error". This could be caused by a bad heating element, a bad thermal cutoff or thermostat, a bad controller, or a problem with the door latch and/or switches. Usually there is a tech-data sheet located on the other side of the toe-kick panel which will explain the meaning of the varius blink codes, but you might still need to call a technician to fix the problem. Don't forget to put that tech data sheet back so he can find it and use it to fix your dishwasher!

Dishwasher not responsive, just a blinking CLEAN light.


HI, this is a control fault that is located in the logic sector of the circuit board. You will need to replace the control in order to restore proper function.
