Hi Melinda, Thanks in advance for using Fixya.com. Now then firstly by pushing the heated dry and normal buttons then repeating is the proper procedure to reset the control board,below is a the exact buttons to push to reset the control. Also please take a count of the number of times the light flashes befroe going off breifly then repeats the same number of flashes; the number of flashes indicates a error code...if if flashes 5 times that error code 5 and if it flashes 7 times its error code 7 etc,etc.. please get back to me with the number of times it flashes. Here is what i copied and pasted from my online service manual for Whirlpool dishwashers that shows which buttons must be pushed to reset the board,after pushing the buttons shown push the cancel/off button and the board should be reset so the machine will start at least one time where ya can take note of the number of times the nirmal light flashes,
Did you try turning off the power and then connecting it again?
If still problem is there open the door.
Press the following sequence of buttons HI Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry,HI Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry.
Now close the dishwasher door and latch it too and press the cancel button. This must reset the dishwasher.
I had this EXACT problem this morning and ended up calling the Sears Home Central Team out (I have an extended maintenance agreement). This is an error code that CAN BE RESET by the end user (you and me!) and doesn't need a repairmain. Here's what you do:
PRESS AND HOLD the START and CANCEL BUTTONS. The four lights above the START button will begin to flash. Continuing holding the START and CANCEL button and "spin" your wash selector knob to "SPIN". Release the START and CANCEL buttons and Press the START button. This will RESET the error codes within the system and allow you to "cancel out" of the DELAY START.
IF the error codes are "bad ones", then the system will stay locked and you'll need to call a repairman; however, this "fix" should work for MOST of the routine system error codes.
Worked on mine and we're a happy washing family once again!!
Communication failure =E10
1. Rotate the CYCLE SELECT KNOB to the 3 O’clock
2. Press and hold the Select and Pause Cancel
buttons simultaneously for (6) seconds.
3. Immediately after, press and hold the START and
Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously for (4)
4. Rotate the CYCLE SELECT KNOB to the 2 O’clock
The STATUS indicator lights will flash the number of
times for the first digit of the code and the START indicator
light will flash the number of times for the second digit.
The code is obtained by counting the number of times
the lights flash. Example E24: the STATUS indicator
lights would flash twice indicating the 2 and the START
indicator light will flash four times indicating the 4. The
STATUS indicator lights and the START indicator light
will start flashing at the same time. The control will then
pause for 2 seconds, then repeat the code.
Troubleshoot the problem by using the chart on next
To move to the next code, press the OPTIONS button.
To clear code, press the Select botton.
To exit this mode, simultaneously press and hold the
Select and Pause Cancel buttons for (6) seconds to
if this does not work need to replace control
to do this move to delicates turn on dryer and keep
pressed down cancel button for about ten seconds release
then all lights should flash when you press cancel again machine will go through test mode , then just turn machine off
it is now reset, this worked for min a drcs68w
holding the button for four seconds will not do it, you have to hold it until the light stops blinking and
will go back to normal, normall takes more than four seconds to unlock the unit, this is something
the sears repair techs know becouse the are trained on all this things but, they will not share this things, becouse thats how they make money
