SOURCE: "Clean light" keeps blinking; dishwasher won't start new cycle

Check to see how it's loaded. If something is obstructing either of the spray arms it will not start. I had this same problem and checked to see if there was something impeding the arms - I found there was. Reloaded the unit and it's running like a champ now!

SOURCE: have a brand new maytag dishwasher. When the cycle is finished the clean light stays on and I have to push buttons to clear is this normal?

If you open the door after the cycle, does it clear the display? Mine is a different maytag model, and when it's done it shows the display as clean. The display will go blank when I open the door manually... let me know if that helps.

Hi, your problem is most likely a sensor or some sort of damage has been done to the main controller board, by a power spike etc.
What you need to do, is troubleshoot your issue to find the cause, accordingly, I have found you a service manual, so you can do this also I have included a DIY, website to assist you.
http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/dishwasher/dishwasher.php

If you do not wish to DIY, then it is my professional advise that you please call a Kitchen Aid service center and ask for an engineer to call and give you a "Quote" for the repair, this way you can then make an informed decision as to what to do.

    My Maytag QuietSeries 400 dishwasher won't start. Sometimes 88 flashes on the display and that's all. What does that mean? Model # MDB7601AWB


    Dishwasher will not start Is the door open or unlatched?
    Make sure the door is completely closed and latched. On models with a dual-digit display, the control displays "- -" during a cycle if it believes the door is not latched. Check for obstructions (spoons, etc), interfering with the door operation. A lower dish rack that is installed backward will also cause incomplete door closure.

    Check your household electrical box to see if a fuse has blown or if the circuit breaker has tripped. If the unit has a plug-in power cord, make sure it is plugged in.

    Does your dishwasher have a rotary timer knob? (Some Models)
    The cycle selection must match the position of the timer knob. Turn the timer knob to the beginning of the preferred cycle. The timer knob should click when you reach the start of the cycle.

    Is the control lock option activated?
    Press and hold the Heated Dry option (button with lock icon) for three to five seconds and the light should turn off. Instructions are also placed on the label on top of the inner door to unlock the controls.

    Is the delay start option activated?
    To cancel the delay and cycle, press Cancel/Drain.

    Has the motor stopped for less than 10 minutes?
    The motor may have stopped due to an overload. If this is the case, the motor will automatically reset itself within 5-10 minutes.

    Is the Start/Resume indicator flashing?
    Opening the door or interrupting the power can stop the cycle. Close the door and press Start/Resume. If the Start/Resume indicator flashes three times when you press Start/Resume, the dishwasher is waiting for you to open the door after the last cycle. Open and close the door, and then press Start/Resume.
    On models where the controls are on top of the door be sure to close the door within 3 seconds of pressing the Start/Resume to start or resume the dishwasher cycle.

    Is the water shutoff valve (if installed) turned on?
    Make sure that the water shutoff valve is turned on.

    The wash light and the start/cancel button keep flashing. How do I fix it? I have a Kitchen Aide dishwasher model KUDS02FR


    Hi,


    The clean light usually will blink due to a failure to heat the water properly. This dishwasher looks for a temperature rise of the water during a heating cycle if it fails to see this rise for multiple cycles it may shut down and blink the clean light.
    There are a few things to check before resetting the control.

    -The unit not being level so both door switches do not make contact
    -
    The sump plugged up so water is not pumping across the heater (see sump clean out below)


    - Not enough water filling the dishwasher


    - The heat element is not working


    To reset the control use this key dance within 5 seconds press:HEATED DRY, NORMAL, HEATED DRY, NORMAL
    This will cause you to enter the diagnosis cycle once this is finished or you hit cancel the control should be unlocked and ready to use.


    Thank you !

    Blinking clean light


    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).
