Question about Kenmore Dishwashers

Open Question

SEARS/WHIRLPOOL DISHWASHER Model 665.16014401. The CLEAN light keeps blinking and washer will not run. Op. instructions say to check the heater circuit. Heater element tests at 12.9 Ohms and thermo unit at 55 K ohm and the unit I beleave looks like overtemp cut out is less than 1 ohm. these look like good #s to me so I suspect the controller p/n 8564544. When I look up the number online I find it has been replaced with 8564546, but the only picture I can find of it looks like the connections are diferent. Is my troubleshooting sound? I have no specs just my experiance to go off on this one so far. What part # do I really need if I am right about the controller? Thanx -->LG

SOURCE: Dishwasher Heating element not working

my wife shut the water off to the dishwasher and forgot to turn it back on and then used the dishwasher.
the heating element went on but there was nop water.
when we turned the water back on,the drying cycle does not work.i would think that the element needs to be changed or is there a relay on the computer board?
this is a two year old Jennair unit.
any suggestions?

You will have to reset the console. To do this, close 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.

Look inside the dishwasher to see where the heating element terminals are. If they are in front you might be able to change it but if the element is in back, you will need to have the dishwasher pulled out to install the element.

Clean light blinks on whirlpool dishwasher won't run


When the light flashes 7 times it means there is/was a problem with the hot water, including a bad heater element. Flip the breaker for a minute and hopefully that will clear the error; otherwise, here's a website that will take you through resetting it.

Hi


If clean light is blinking then it may be an issue with heater circuit, door switch or wash pump, please reset the power to the dishwasher. After, 5 minutes check if you are still getting the same error. If yes, then it is a water heating fault. To resolve this error try pressing this reset sequence-- Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal or High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry or Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry, Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry or High Temp Wash-Heated Dry-High Temp Wash-Heated Dry . Now let the unit run for 2-3 minutes and then you press the Cancel/Drain button and allow it to completely drain and reset. If this doesn't work then it's an issue with the wash pump not pumping the water past the heater efficiently or due to lack of water to heat. Please make sure that heater is not open circuited and is heating the water efficiently. You'll have to check the heater using a multimeter; the meter should read between 3000 to 3300 ohms (Use multimeter on Rx1 ohm setting). If heater is fine then make sure water pressure is optimum and fill valve is working fine. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Clean light keeps blinking and washer will not function. Cancel runs the pump for 2 minute, but the blinking light keeps going with no functions working.


if the clean light is blinking that mean you dishwasher is having a heater issue. it is an error code. either your control board is bad or the heater or the ntc therm. if you take the bottom panel off you will see or should see a tech sheet that will tell you how to clear the error code or this website will help you. just enter your model number http://servicematters.com/docs/wiring/wiring_main.htm

Blinking Clean light in Whirpool dishwasher


Control is programmed to stop running and not allow any further cycles if it detects a water heating problem (no temperature increase detected in heated Main Wash on 3 consecutive cycles). Control blinks the Clean LED 7 times repeatedly and disables the Start/Resume key until cleared. Running Diagnostics clears the control and allows it to operate again. The water heating problem must be fixed or the control will stop running again. See potential causes below. Heater circuit problem: ■ Open in heater. ■ Open connection or component in heater circuit. ■ Faulty heater drive circuit on control. 1. Check operation of heater in Diagnostics cycle. 2. Unplug dishwasher or disconnect power. 3. Check resistance of heater and all components and connections in the water heating circuit or heat dry circuit.

Dishwasher will not start


You have a clean light flashing. You need to reset you control. It is activated by a number of different situations. Find the tech sheet for your dishwasher which is normally located under the bottom plate of the dishwasher. If you can not find it give me the model number and I will tell you how to activate the diagnostic test. If you do find it follow the section that says diagnostic test. Then check and makes sure you heater element is operating.
