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
-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry

...all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle 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).

SOURCE: Clean LED is blinking, manual says check heater

Heater element shorted, a resistor on the control board is visibly fried which makes it inoperable. Estimate to replace both is at least $300. This is terrible design, should be a protection fuse on the control panel. Chances are this will happen again after the repair, design has not been modified. We invested our money in a replacement w/a one year warranty. Rather than 90 days for parts and service.

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

The problem in my opinion with the manual on troubleshooting, though it is correct, it doesn't give much more detail to resolve the problem. Based on your description it is likely nothing too serious.

What typically happens is poor water circulation preventing the water from heating properly.

To resolve this, I'd start with the following...the wash pump area. You`ll need to follow these steps to clean it.

1 ) Remove the turbo wash tube if applicable to your model, it pulls off, i.e.
a6dcf7f.jpg

2 ) Spray arm removal. hold the center nut and spin the arm.
f634f7c.jpg
3 ) Now you can remove the upper spray arm supply tub or referred to sometimes as "rear feed cap".
a ) lift to depress the rear tab, i.e.
87fb0d6.jpg
b ) Then twist the feeder to the right ( clockwise ), i.e.
5f19a61.jpg
4 ) Now you can remove the center nut...

333a8e1.jpg

Then remove the four # 20 torx head screws holding the filter in place, and lift the filter out.

Below the filter you`ll find food debris, undissolved detergent etc, but also a cover with a single #10 torx head screw to remove and the cover will pull straight up and out. the arrows from left to right in the image indicate...

1) screw location
2) tab to pull up on
3) the latch you may need to twist to the left to remove the cover
i.e.
macmarkus_416.jpg
Now you should see the chopper and screen assembly, it too can be clogged up pretty bad, clean it best you can...you don`t really want to remove this part. Make sure there is no debris present where I've indicated here with the arrow below.

If my explanation is not clear enough, here`s a link which provides a pretty good video of how to do this, these guys aren`t pro`s but the "how to" video is pretty thorough nonetheless.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iRCCrEwrst8&NR=1

Once these actions have been performed you'll need to clear the error code. to do so is as followsPress the following buttons in this sequence...

HEATED DRY - NORMAL, HEATED DRY - NORMAL, HEATED DRY - NORMAL

This diagnostic cycle may take approx. 15-20 minutes to complete and may vary depending on the model number


. Let it proceed through to completion and you should be good to go...unless the heater itself is at fault or a wire has vibrated loose from the heater...those are steps to follow if OR when necessary.

Let me know how you make out or keep me informed if you need further assistance or anything is unclear. If this resolves the issue please take a moment to rate me assistance and a short testimony is appreciated as well.

Thank you for choosing FixYa and good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Trying to find the heater circuit


You can, first, meter the hi-limit thermostat for continuity. Then, meter the heater element for Ohm's resistance. If either test bad, replace them, if neither test bad, replace the main control board.

Clean light "green" flashes 7


Hi


If clean light is blinking then it may be an issue with heater circuit, door switch or wash pump, please reset the power to the dishwasher. After, 5 minutes check if you are still getting the same error. If yes, then it is a water heating fault. To resolve this error try pressing this reset sequence-- Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal or High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry or Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry, Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry or high temp wash-heated dry-high temp wash-heated dry. Now let the unit run for 2-3 minutes and then you press the Cancel/Drain button and allow it to completely drain and reset. If this doesn't work then it's an issue with the wash pump not pumping the water past the heater efficiently or due to lack of water to heat. Please make sure that heater is not open circuited and is heating the water efficiently. You'll have to check the heater using a multimeter; the meter should read between 3000 to 3300 ohms (Use multimeter on Rx1 ohm setting). If heater is fine then make sure water pressure is optimum and fill valve is working fine. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Model 655-17014401 clean light (green) flashes but dishwasher won't start


This means you have an open heat circuit. It could be either a bad heating element, a bad hi limit thermostat, or a bad control board. The heater and hi limit therm can be tested for continuity with an ohm meter. Most of these units the heater will come with the control board in a kit. Hope this helps.
