It sound that the problem is cause the water level switch.The switch level is a diaphragm device with a small clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. I am not familiar with this specific machine, but if you will open the rear panel you will find it easily. Clear tube first from any obstruction, In case it doesn't help, disconnect the wires from the unit (you should disconnect first machine's power cable !!!!!) and measure with a multi-meter on its tugs for continuity and disconnection while you are inhale and blow to its tube. In case it doesn't react, you should replace it. Good luck !

Thanks for using FixYa. If the clean light flashes, pauses, and then repeats. When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (clean light flashes, 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
-high temp wash
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 (i.e. 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).
Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Don't hold me to this but I believe to reset during a cycle you press simultaneously the two buttons with a dot under them (2nd in from the left and 2nd in from the right) 0.01 or 0.00 comes on the screen and the pump will run. To run a test cycle turn machine of, press and hold the same two buttons and turn machine on whilst holding them in, the machine code should show in the display (usually a number in it's 20's), release these two button and then immediately press them again, this should initiate the test cycle. The d/w should now run thru a test cycle. If no fault is detected the display will show 0 or 1. If anything else, please repost and I will try to let you know what the fault code represents. test sequence is usually is as follows.
Pump, fill, circulation motor, dispenser (listen for it to open), heat to 65 degrees, regeneration flush, intermittent pump, sensor recalibration (if the d/w has any), alternate fill/pump, pump, finish. Take approx 10-15mins to complete.
Hope this helps, pls feedback or reply if unknown code appears.

Hi, if you even suspect that this unit has been spiked, then please follow my professional advice and PLEASE get it looked at by a professional, i say this as spike damage can and is very very difficult to diagnose and further, repairs to the damage actually done, and also any potential stressed/damaged components too, these must be diagnosed and repaired first, or otherwise even if the unit is repaired, without doing so, well, it will simply fail again as the components that were stressed from the spike but not yet failed do so, in due course, after the unit is put back into service. Most often it's the main CCU, and or the microprocessor that are spike damaged among other things... Most often complete board replacement is called for just to be safe and sure.
Simply contact the manufactures local or head office, then ask them for a referral to an authorised service center, now make contact here and then when in face to face contact, if worried about costings then ONLY first ask just for the "Quote' this then will appraise you of potential costings and you can then go from there as to repair or possibly replace?
Even if one wanted to DIY, one would first have to obtain a service manual, to allow one to follow the troubleshooting procedures and also to glean those all important parts numbers to order spares that will be be needed, .and i have searched the 'net but have been unable to locate any?
