Re: dishwasher problem

Your unit is trying to tell you that the door is not closed or the door switch is not working properly. i would guess that you will have to call someone out to repair the latch and switch as it has to have the control panel removed to gain access to the latch that holds the switches.
i would guess to have it replaced could cost about 120 to 150 bucks.
before you do call, make sure the door is closed properly and nothing is stopping the door, like a long handle or a dish sticking out the racks.

Re: dishwasher problem

There is a fault obviously, start to check for things in this order

water supply to unit
door catch
heater element
waste pump,
actually i think it could be the water supply as you said it does nothing before beeping, if the water supply is going to the machine it could be the solenoid, thats the part thats let the water in to the machine, this part is difficult to replace on most models

The blinking light problem ( clean light blinks 7 times) if the thermistor fails...

The blinking "clean light" is a common problem with some of the Kenmore and Whirlpool models dishwashers. The problem is usually attributed to water supply temperatures being too low when filling. Apparently, there are some issues with the temperature sensing circuits in some dishwashers that causes an error code to be generated if a certain water temperature is not achieved in a specified time interval (this time may differ between models). There is a reset sequence that you can try to clear the fault. Push the NORMAL WASH then HEATED DRY buttons in that sequence two to three times. The unit will enter diagnostics mode, but can be stopped by pressing the CANCEL button. This will clear any existing faults and should return the dishwasher to normal operation.

To keep the fault from returning, it is recommended that you run your hot water faucet in the kitchen until it runs hot BEFORE you start the dishwasher. This will heat the water in the supply line for the dishwasher (most dishwashers are fed from the kitchen sink supply line). The theory is that if you fill the dishwasher with hot water from the start of the wash cycle instead of the cool water that is normally in the lines (especially if you have a hot water tank located far away from the kitchen), this should satisfy the requirements of the temperature sensing circuits. If the fault reappears, there should be a tech sheet located inside the lower panel under the door that explains what the fault is. The flashing light will be a series of flashes, followed by a pause. If you indeed have a component problem, it will depend on the number of flashing lights in the sequence. Refer to the tech sheet to determine WHAT component is affected and how to troubleshoot.

Why won't my dishwasher register that the door is closed?

Hi your probably got a crook or faulty micro switch which is linked in series with the control circuit that registers the programme to wash. In simplified terms the switch is stuck in an open circuit configuration and won't allow the wash programme to commence as a safe guard against water splash when the door is open.
check for correct door alignment and listen carefully when you close the dishwasher door to hear if the micro switch clicks. If it does not suggestbyoungetbit looked at by a professional because the time involved to pull it all apart just is not worth it because it could be more than just a micro switch. That's just a primary fault that can occur. If you monitor what the dishwasher does when you first switch it on, many models indicate the fault condition from the control panel which you can search readily from the net. Best of luck with it but if in doubt get it looked at professionally. Cheers

Intake/drain light on

Please check the INLET water pressure, remove the inlet and check. Now if there is pressure make sure that when the power is pressed there is a pre wash cycle to start the machine. If not there is fault in the program controller , please check the door switch and the panel board.

Fill Fault appears during wash cycle.

Is the filter in the hose where it screws onto the tap clean?, if this is okay then most likely the valve.

Loud Buzzing Sound from Dishwasher

have you ever seen green led "Clean" light flashing? before or about the same time the buzzing sound started? and if so that would indicate that the control senses a fault in the temperature rise during the heating cycle and that the electronic control could be reset by initiating a service diagnostic cycle.(which is what you were trying to do) pls reread your manual there are times during that sequence that some buttons have to be pushed at the same time and within a certain amount of time..possible that your machine also has a bad timer which would give you a buzzing noise..if thats the case I would recommend replacing the cpu or control board..or the machin all together..The Kenmore Ultra Wash Quiet Guard name is sears but whirpool has the contract to produce all "kenmore products.hope that helps.

Clean light keeps blinking and I can't start a new cycle

Puppa, clear the fault by pressing the keys in this order: high temp scrb--air dry--high temp scrub--air dry. Or, depending on your model..Sani rinse--air dry--sani rinse--air dry. The dishwasher will enter the service mode. Let it do it's thing or advance it through it by pressing the start key. The fault came from the board not sensing a rise in the water temp. Make sure to run the hot water before starting the dishwasher. The heating element runs through the nuetral side of the door switch so make sure the d/w is level and the door switches are all making. The element itself could be at fault. back
