SOURCE: Dishwasher Reset / Diagnostics

Unscrew and remove the kickplate at the very bottom of the dishwasher. The tech sheet with the diagnostic code should be attached to the back of it.  If not, due a websearch and you should be able to find the info on yahoo or google.

SOURCE: KENMORE ELITE DISHWASHER - MULTI-LIGHTS FLASHING

Look at your manual, usually available on net for reading or downloading. Blink lights are often used to code out a problem with various combinations and repetition rates to indicate trouble code number for look-up in manual.

SOURCE: i have a kenmore dishwasher mode 665.16032402

I was able to reset it using this procedure:

1. Crack the dook open

2. Within 3 seconds, press these buttons in this squence: Hi Temp Wash, Heated dry, Hi Temp Wash, Heated Dry

3. Close door

4. Press Cancel

That should clear the Blinking LED. It appears this is a common problem. The worst thing is they charge to come out for this.

How do you reset a KitchenAid dishwasher model: KUDE70FXSS4?


Press High Temp Scrub and Dry Heat option buttons in quick succession one after the other for about 6 sec until all the lights come on. Then press Cancel button. This should reset the dishwasher. Press equivalent buttons on the panel if the actual ones above are not there.
Make sure the dishwasher detergent dispenser lid is shut and the dishwasher door is shut before you start the above reset sequence.

Why are lights flashing on my dishwasher's control panel?


There is a button configuration that you can press to make the unit reset on some you would close the door and push normal wash heated dry then normal wash then heated dry on others it would the econo wash button then heated dry then the econo/ heated dry this pattern starts the unit and then puts it into the drain cycle and resets the control which allows you to start washing again. If you can name off all the buttons you have I can tell you exactly which ones to perform this reset in the unit. I await your reply

p.s this also happens on whirlpool models as well right after the warranty runs out so you end up paying the high service charge for a tech to walk in you door push a few buttons then collect a fee over 169.00 which is ridiculous.

Dishwasher won't turn on, lock light comes on when I try to start


my husband found the solution on line when he googled the problem. He read that the drain could have been blocked, or it said press the drain button. That did the trick, and now I have clean dishes! He didn't have to pay anyone to solve the problem which was nice.

Maytag Dishwasher flashing lights


I have the same problem with the lights flashing on the control panel. It pops up every 4 or 5 months. The only solution I have found is to press the delay/resume button one time then press the drain/off button twice. You may have to hold the keys down for a couple of seconds. This seems to reset something in the panel. Make sure you haven't pressed the 3 second lock button or it won't work.
