Hi,
- If the cause is a "dead not working" dishwasher, ensure that the wiring is properly located and attached to the PCB assembly. Check the door switches, check the main wire harness coming into the d/w. On some assemblies a jumper wire with dual terminal on one end is used. When attaching the wire from the main harness to the dual terminal, the possibility of a loose connection may occur causing improper voltage to the PCB. If the PCB board has a burnt trace on the back of the PCB, A shorted triac on the PC board may be the cause. The motor start winding may have been damaged, which should be checked at the same time.
- If the complaint is "All lights are flashing", interrupt power to the dishwasher for 1 minute, then re-apply power. If the lights are not flashing, may not be a PCB problem.

- If the "Clean & Option" keypads appear not to be working, but the "Auto clean" keypad does, disconnect the wiring at the turbidity sensor. If a cycle and any option can now be entered, replace the turbidity sensor.

- If the "Clean & Keypad 7 LED" are flashing, this is the code for an incorrect "Memory Software Check". Interrupt power to the dishwasher for 1 minute, then re-apply power. If the lights are not flashing, the PCB may not be your problem.

    A manual function test may be started by pressing the keys in the following sequence within 10 seconds.

    Keypad 2
    Keypad 1
    Keypad 2
    Keypad 3
    Keypad 4
    Keypad 5
    Keypad 6
    Keypad 7
    Keypad 4

    The dry LED will FLASH indicating manual test mode active. Specific keypads will turn on or off a component as follows:

    Keypad 2 - Motor circulate
    Keypad 3 - Water valve
    Keypad 4 - Soap dispenser ( lid closed ) Rinse Aid ( lid open )

    Keypad 5 - Vent
    Keypad 6 - Heating element

    When a component is activated by pressing a specific keypad, the LED above the keypad will be ON. The test will cancel 120 seconds after the last keypad is pressed. To cancel test, press the Drain/off keypad.

    Thanks for using FixYa.

The smart wash light on my kenmore elite model 66513753K602 is flashing. I have tried the suggested button sequences to reset it and they have not worked. How do I troubleshoot it to determine which...


From the tech sheet:

CHECKING KEYPAD
OPERATION
A rapidly blinking LED over
one of the keys of the keypad
(or sometimes a "dead"
keypad/console) indicates one
or more key switch lines are
stuck or shorted on either the
control or the keypad. To
determine if the control or
keypad is faulty, do the
following test:
1. Unplug dishwasher or disconnect
power.
2. Open the dishwasher door.
3. Open console and disconnect the
keypad ribbon connection from
the control (at P1). Make sure all
other connections are made.
4. Put console back together. Do not
close the dishwasher door.
5. Plug in dishwasher or reconnect
power.
6. Wait 5 seconds.
7. Close dishwasher door.
8. Monitor the control's response:
? If the control is OK (no longer
sees shorts with the keypad
unplugged), it will respond by
turning on a Drain Motor for
2 minutes. Check and/or
replace the keypad if the
control responds OK.
? If the control is not OK (still
sees shorts with the keypad
unplugged), then the drain
motor will NOT respond and
will remain off. If no response,
replace the control.

The hi temp wash and air dry lights are blinking on my firgidaire dishwasher


Hi Dan, this is AP!

I understand you are experiencing some trouble with the lights on your Frigidaire dishwasher. On your particular model, FFBD1821MW, if there has been a power failure, then the "Hi-Temp Wash" and "Heat Dry" LEDs will flash. In order to stop the LED lights from flashing press Start/Cancel. This process should relieve your concern regarding the LED lights flashing. I hope this information proves helpful to some degree.

Best of luck,

Heating Element

If lights are flashing on the control panel, the heating element might have burned out. The heating element heats the water up to operating temperature. After a set amount of time if the temperature isn't reached a light on the control panel might start flashing. The heating element can be checked for continuity with an Ohm meter.

After a set amount of time if the temperature isn't reached a light on the control panel might start flashing. The heating element assembly can be checked for continuity with an Ohm meter.





Check Fault Codes

If the display lights are flashing and there is an error code in the display window, check the wiring diagram and tech sheet in the dishwasher that will provide information on the fault.


Drain Pump

If lights are flashing on the control panel, the drain pump might not be working properly. For two-wire drain pump motors check them for continuity using an Ohm meter. If it's defective You'll need to replace it. Drain pumps are not repairable.





Touchpad and Control Panel

If the lights are flashing on the display the entire touchpad and control panel assembly might be defective. If the display works but the dishwasher functions are all out of synch, or some of the buttons don't respond properly the entire touchpad and control panel might need to be replaced.





Touchpad

If the display lights are flickering for no reason, the touchpad might need to be replaced. Sometimes when the touchpad is defective the display lights are flashing randomly.

Cancel Light Flashing on Kitchen Aid Dishwasher


I ran into this same problem. Cutting the power didnt reset it.

After power reset, mine had the normal led blinking. If I pressed cancel, then the cancel and china button leds would start blinking too.

I pulled out the trouble shooting guide (from behind the baseboard kick panel under the dishwasher door). It that if the dishwasher wont run and button LEDs are blinking there is a short circuit in the keypad. It gave a keypad diagnostic sequence which I followed. (disconnect keypad and try to initiate the diagnostic cycle without the keypad by disconecting the yellow leads to OWI sensor twice in less than 6 seconds.

I could hear the diagnostic cycle start, so the problem is a bad keypad. Will order a new one tomorrow and let you know if it works.

Flashing LEDs


When doing some floor work, I had taken off the front bottom panel of the dishwasher and there was a pamphlet which had electronic information. Dummy me threw it away, but I remember it had code information on it. I am now having this flashing light problem. So check behind the front bottom panel (remove the 4 screws to get behind it) and the piece of paper should be in there. Please let me know if you find it!
