Dishwasher wont finish any cycles


That blinking light is trying to tell you that there is something wrong with the dishwasher. You need to fix the problem or else that blinking light will come back. And the number of times it blinks (before it pauses and repeats) will tell you (or a technician) what is wrong. How many times does it blink?

My dishwasher blinks the green clean light


May have a bad heater. press hi temp, air dry,hi temp, air dry (or whatever button is equivalent on your model). this starts a test and will allow unit to work again. When drying light goes out touch the heater. If it is cold then it may be bad. You will need a voltmeter to tell for sure however.

Dishwasher Clean light blinks constantly.


Try turning off the power to the dishwasher at the circuit breaker box. leave the power off for 5 10 mins and then turn breaker back on and try to restart dishwasher. This may reset the board and it may work

I just read this for the same problem: push sanitize, then heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, cancel, then open and close the door. It worked. The dishwasher is running correctly even as I type this.

Kenmore elite dishwasher


I had the same problem when I bought it and it just happened again; the problem is solved by ressting the control panel: Hi Temp ---> Heated Dry two or three times. It kind of goes into a testing cycle and the clean blinking light goes off.
