Hi, this is a control fault that is localized in the logic sector of the control board. the logic chip which holds all wash programing is damaged. you will need to replace the control asap if possible.

If 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).
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).
I Hope this works for you.

The CLEAN light is flashing on my Kenmore QuietGuard3 , but it won't clean anything. It starts a cycle for a few minutes, stops and starts flashing clean again. Any suggestions?


You will have to reset the dishwasher. First try and turn off the mains power and back on after a short time. If the clean light flashing starts again then you go through the hard reset procedure.

press NORMAL WASH then HEATED DRY buttons one after the other until all the lights on the board lit up (3X's). The dishwasher will enter into a cycle; Press Cancel. This should stop the flashing.
If you are supplying dishwasher from hot water inlet then make sure the inlet water temperature stays within the recommended range of 145 deg F.

Clean lite keeps flashing will not start whenstart


The thermistor beneath the accumulator inside the sump detects the water temperature as it begins the first 8 minutes of the main wash cycle. During this time, the controller expects the thermistor to detect the 2-4 degrees rise in the water temperature when the first 8 minutes is completed. If the expected temperature rise is not met, the controller will not be satisfied. It will shut the dishwasher down and blink the clean light 7 times. Press the heated dry then normal wash buttons in the same sequence two times. The unit will enter diagnostics mode, but can be stopped by pressing the cancel button. It will clear the fault and makes the dishwasher normal but will appear again if you have problem in either of the following:
  1. Heater and its circuitry
  2. Water filling
  3. Pumping motor
If the heater is not working, the water temperature will not rise then controller will shutdown the machine.
If there's no water entering the machine, no water will be heated and there's no way the controller through the thermistor can detect any rise in temperature.
If the pumping motor is not working, the water cannot circulate over the heater and be heated. Again, the controller will not be satisfied.

You can bypass this fault detection feature by filling the machine with either extremely cold or extremely hot water. Water colder than 62 or hotter than 160 degrees Fahrenheit will make the controller not to check for a temperature rise but rather continue on the next cycle.
Please let me know if the problem still bother you.

'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 light flashes cant get to start a wash 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 cycle 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's not as common 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).

Green ('Clean') light flashing


try this: fill the machine with cold water from your garden hose and start it up. the machine should recognize the water full condition and continue to start washing. wait about 7 minutes and stop it. open the door. did the water heat?
