Re: Clean light flashing

The clean light should be blinking 7 times, pause, then repaeat if it is doing this -- it is a water heating fault. Use one of the following key dances to clear fault

a) Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal


b)High Temp-Air Dry-High Temp-Air Dry

All the Leds should light up now just press cancel and Unit should operate. If it shuts down again the heater isnt working properly. Some times the door doesnt get shut well and that causes the fault. But the dishes arent very clean if the heater is not working.

My dishwasher will run and seems to clean but the panel is flashing. There is water sitting at the bottom and the panel shows red. Not sure how yo reset.

Check the filter and if equipped check the float in the bottom of the washer itself. Some of these circuit board will go bad and still function to some degree, but check the simple things first

Clean light is flashing

As an example on a kitchenaid dishwasher when the clean light flashes 7 times this is a control error that be corrected you would press Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry, Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry with the door open and then close the door and press cancel. If your unit were a whirlpool dishwasher you can press hi temp heated dry hi temp heated dry with the door open which does end up lighting all the led's and when you shut the door makes the unit cycle into the wash stage. after you hear the unit letting water into it listen for the wash cycle to start and then press cancel. After the unit drains then you can set your unit to wash again. I will await your reply as to what type of unit you have before continueing on with a exact solution for your unit. Thanks

Problem with dishwasher

inspect the drain, there may be debris in the drain system. While at it see if you can clean the unit. Normally food that had remained on the dishes would accumulate and start clogging the unit over time.

'clean' light flashes

Press the normal wash then heated dry buttons in the same sequence two to three times. The unit will enter diagnostics mode, but can be stopped by pressing the cancel button.It will clear any existing faults and makes the dishwasher to operate normally.

To prevent the issue from recurring, run your hot water faucet first to ensure that hot water is present in the entire supply line before starting the filling.

Clean LED constantly flashes,only function is drain

If it's a Whirlpool, and flashes seven times, then you have a heater circuit problem. You would need to diagnose which component is at fault

Clean light flashes constanly. Won't clear out to start new cycle

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).
