It sounds like a faulty console panel. I will need the model number to diagnose it any better. Open the door and the model and serial number tag should be on the side of the cabinet, usually on the left. Respond back with it and we will see if we can walk through the problem.

Thanks/Mike

    Thanks for the model number.

    First, lets make sure the console is not locked.

    Hold the air dry button in for 4 seconds and see if the lock light comes on. If so, hold it down for 4 seconds again and it should go out. If it doesn't light up, try to cancel the cycle. 

    If this has no effect then you have a stuck switch in the console.  When the machine is working properly, if you hold any of the cycle buttons down for more than 3 seconds it will start flashing until you release it. What is happening with your machine is the quick rinse switch is stuck. The only other quick fix you might try is to press and release the quick rinse button a few times to see if you can free it. I doubt this will help but it's worth a try.

    This means the whole plastic console will have to be replaced. You can order it from Sears.com for $129.49 plus shipping for the white console. Price may vary by color.

    I have run into this problem several times and almost always there has been a child or grandchild that has been playing with the diswasher buttons to see the lights change. (I have a 2 yr old that I have to keep an eye on around the dishwasher)

    If you want to try to repair this yourself, post back and I will walk you through the steps. If you choose to have Sears repair it they may offer you a Service Smart Agreement that will cover the repair plus extended coverage. If the price is less than $250, I would advise you to take it. It will cost much more than that to have them come out and repair it.

    Let me know what you decide.

    Thanks/Mike

    4H is the display for a 4 hour time delay wash. I am afraid you will have to replace the console. There is a slight chance the problem is in the electronic board but my experience with these machines is the console is your problem.

    Thanks/Mike

Ok, Turn breaker off at breaker panel. Just off then on. The rinse only light should be on.....not flashing. Now press the start button first and hold; then press the cancel button. That should cancel all lights. Then press wash button then start. If the light is still flashing after you turn off breaker....you might have a bigger problem. May need new control panel.

Pots and pans light, quick rinse and cancel buttons all blinking. unit will not start.


Try to pull the fuse or turn off the breaker for 30 seconds. This should reset the electronics and possibly fix the problem.

Clean light flashes on my KitchenAid KUDS01DJ and it wont run


My dishwasher did the same thing. The repair guy fixed it and told us how to reset next time it happens: press: Hi temp then Energy saver then Hi Temp then Energy saver do this quickly over 5 seconds all the lights should come on Then,turn off the breaker for one minute then, go back to the dishwasher and press cancel. All the lights should turn off. Start dishwasher as usual. If the cause was just a brain fart, the dishwasher should work.

Turn the power off to your dishwasher for about 30 seconds by flipping off the circuit breaker in your home's breaker box. When you turn the breaker back on it will have reset the dishwasher and should begin working just fine.

Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher - Blinking Quick Rinse Light


I had the same flashing light problem first the normal wash flashing light then the others. I tried shuting of the breakers but nothing. I tried resetting the panel by pushing normal wash and heated dry simultaneously and nothing. So I took the six screws holding the front panel out and unplugged the ribbon type wires and plug and unplugged it several times to help make a better contact and I was able to get it to work right away. This may not work for all but I worked for me. It is very easy to do and it's worth a try if you're having the same problem. It took me less then 10 minutes.
