    The machine won't switch on at all, the light just flashes 7 times. If i hold down the on button it seems to force the machine on but then it cuts off not long after that. I managed to force it to do a rinse cycle and there was water in the machine and it was heating it up. I guess 7 flashes relates to an error of some sort - any ideas what?

Ok, the reason for the shutdown is because of a serious control fault within the control panel. it could be because of a simple lose wire or, it could be as serious as a damaged control circuit board.

The best way to find out is to use a multimeter and test all pins on the back of the control panel for their respective operational values. Make sure the wires are not worn and damaged as well. check the entire wiring harness for lose fit on all correlating parts in the unit.

If you are not an experienced electrician, i would recommend calling in a tech for a look. Your tech will run a smilier inspection to make sure its the control and not a motor malfunction.

In most cases, this will most defiantly be a control board failure and replacing the board will usually fix this type of issue.

PLease rate and god bless:)

Kenmore dishwasher won't restart, green light flashes 7 times


Unless you have already tried the fix on this site, please see if you can reset your dishwasher. It appears to be linked to dishwasher not being able to heat water to correct wash temperature.

The green clean light is flashing. It will not go off even when we press cancel. The wash cycle was not completed. The model # is 665.17283400.


The green clean light means that your dishwasher isn't heating the water. Go to the link below to see how to reset the error code and check for reasons that the error happened.

DWF 415 Ikea Whirlpool Dishwasher has constant green blinking light. Drain pump works ok (as it will pump out a jug of water if I tip it into it!) but no water comes in. Cycle stops about 30 seconds after...


Anyone got an answer to this, as I have exactly the same fault.

Dishwasher appears to switch on OK, then after a short time (20 secs?) the pump noise stops and the green light flashes - it seems to e a sequence of 7 flashes, then stop... 7 flashed then stop.

The sequence could indicate a fault detected?

Anyone know anything about these units from IKEA, made by Whirlpool?

Thanks!

Flashing green light on my indesit dishwasher


Put some towels dowm and tip the dishwasher over to one side about 45 degrees, if water pours out of the base it means that the dishwasher is in "flood mode" and you have a leak into the base that will need resolving.

Whirlpool quiet partner I won't run just keeps blinking


is the cean light blinking 7 times and then repaeating?? If so this is a water heating fault and means that the computer sensed that the water temp didnt rise just 3deg in the last main wash cycle. If its not blinking 7times then repeat, it sounds like the user interface (membrane switches) have failed. Let me know more and i can help.
