It appears your Timer/ Controller has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Our Kenmore Elite Dishwasher has a blinking green light next to the clean cycle. It won't reset. We changed the motor and this has been going on ever since. Do you know what we need to do to fix it....


Hello

Blinking green light can be reset by following two buttons in sequence: press HIGH TEMP WASH-HEATED DRY buttons in sequence around 3-4 times so that the control reset itself. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
