If the clean light flashes 7 times, pauses, then repeats...

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: Heating element circut malfunction In Dishwasher. Wash not workin

Great job walking through the possible causes! Hey, it is time to check the heating element itself. First visually, looking for brakes and then feeling for "bubbles" on the round element rod. Also see if it moves excessivly when you wiggle.
If no problem obvious, after you disconnect the dishwasher from power, use a multimeter to check for resistance (Ohms) If none, look for broken (heavy guage) wires and replace what's broken - probably the element itself.
If the element checks out good, suspect the thermistor then the controller/PCB.
Good Luck! Please report back what you find, OK?

Maytag dishwasher MDB8959AWS2 blinks 7 times and will not work, what is the code to reset.


Try the instructions listed at this site. If the problem still occurs after the reset it is usually the heater element that might be faulty.

Tip

Flashing or blinking green clean light 7 times?


This dishwasher looks for a temperature rise of the water during a heating cycle if it fails to see this rise for multiple cycles it may shut down and blink the clean light 7 times.

The failure can be wide ranging here are a few things to check before resetting the control.

-The unit not being level so both door switches do not make contact

- The sump plugged up so water is not pumping across the heater (see sump clean out below)

- Not enough water filling the dishwasher

- The heat element is not working

To reset the control use this key dance within 5 seconds press:

HEATED DRY, NORMAL, HEATED DRY, NORMAL

This will cause you to enter the diagnosis cycle once this is finished or you hit cancel the control should be unlocked and ready to use.

How to reset control board on kitchenaid dishwasher


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.

Led light flashes 4 times, pauses then repeats


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.

Pump clamp failure fixed and now dishwasher clean light blinks 4 times and controls are locked


I would start by calling that Technician back out. If it is a common problem with your model, did the technician inform you of that when he was there last? Did he even mention the POSSIBILITY that the pump might have water in it and may need to be replaced?

If not, I'd want to know why not. This sounds like something he should have been aware of and checked for, especially if he was a Kitchen Aid appliance service technician. That's the way a "handyman" might do something, but not a certified repairman.

I have a kitchen-aid dishwasher model # KUDio1ibl6 and it will not come on and the clean light flashes 7 times then pauses and blinks 7 time again. Do you have any Idea what this code stands for I do not...


Hello Asa,

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

Clean light flashes on and off 7 times, then a pause. Then repeats the sequence. Machine will not start regular cycle.


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
