Check to see if there is a manual behind the bottom panel. It should tell you what that error code is. It may be the heater is not working or some other issue. You will have to repair the problem before this will stop.
If the clean light blinks four times and then pauses and then blinks four times again and repeats, the problem is your pump motor. If there is water under the DW the pump clamp has probably failed and sprayed water onto and inside the motor. Call a certified Kitchen Aid repair service.
Which light blinks 4 times and pauses wash normal heavy etc if the model in the blue box is correct the to enter diagnostic press any 3 keys within 8 seconds I usually use normal and the 2 keys to the right all lights should light up if touch pad is up top where you had to open door to accomplish this then close the door after a pause the clean light will begin to flash example 7 flashes pause 1 flash these are your fault code it will do this 3 times for each code. The tech sheet should be behind the toe panel located below the dishwasher door which just repeats what I explained.
The light blinking seven times is a error code specifically it's error #7 .The E-7 error indicates the part called the flow meter is bad. To clear that error code and get the dishwasher to start push within 3 seconds HIGH TEMP WASH -HEATED DRY-HIGH TEMP WASH- HEATED DRY
then push CANCEL sereval times to dishwasher shuts off..it should start and run then
If the blinks 7 times again the flowmeter will need to be replaced
ON some models the "HIGH TEMP WASH" button is labled power scrub instead of high temp wash so in that case push POWER SCRUB-HEATED DRY-POWER SCRUB-HEATED DRY then cancel as described above
In case the E-7 error returns and the flowmeter needs to be replaced the part number for it is W10195536
Hello & Welcome to FixYa Flashing light is reset by pressing two buttons in sequence 3-4 times, to reset your dishwasher press these buttons in sequence: High temp wash-heated dry-high temp wash-heated dry Please get back to me if you have any other questions. Kevin
The clean light blinking 7 times can indicate a heater failure.
Press Heated Dry, Normal Washer, Heated Dry, and Normal Wash.
This sequence will run a diagnostic test and clear the error temporarily but if the dishwasher is not heating the water the error will happen again.
If the problem is a reoccurring one then I recommend checking the heater amps if you have access to a clamp-on volt/amp meter.
Remove power to the dishwasher and remove the access panel. See image below. Clamp the meter around the black or white wire at the junction box and restore power and run the test cycle. During the test the heater will come on and the meter should pick up about 8-10 amps. If you get no amp draw then the heater is not working and is the cause of the clean light blinking 7 times
