Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDS01FLBL Built-in Dishwasher
Kitchen aide dishwasher clean light will not go out. Dishwasher cannot be stated. Clean light blinks. When you press the cancel light dishwasher starts for about 20 seconds.
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
-high temp wash
...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).

I had this problem and diagnosed it back to the heater element. I replaced the heater element and reset the unit like is mentioned and had success!
