Tip

Clean light flashing on dishwasher


if you have a whirlpool/ kenmore dishwasher and the clean light is flashing 7 times then pauses and then repeats, it is a problem with the heating circuit.
follow this keypad operation: push the high temp wash, air dry, high temp wash, air dry. this will put the unit into a service mode and it will run a short diagnosis cycle. after it gets done, about 5-7 minutes, then it will reset and allow you to use the unit again.
make sure the water is hot enough at your faucet at least 120 degrees, and the door is getting closed tight.

The panel is stuck on pots/pans for cleaning and wont let me run the dishwasher. the pots/pans light keeps flashing


Hello,

To reset the dishwasher push in this order the,

HIGH TEMP WASH- HEATED DRY- HIGH TEMP WASH- HEATED DRY - CANCEL/OFF

the control will be reset...but more importantly how many times in a row does the light flash..it will indicate what error code its displaying??

example if it flashes 4 times then a pause then flashes 4 times again its displaying the error code#4
7 flashes then pause then 7 flashes its displaying the error code#7 ect ect

My dishwasher isn't working. The clean button


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If the clean light flashes 7 times, pauses, and then repeats this occurs when the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks 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


Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.



Thanks

The "clean" light is green, flashing.Dishwasher won't restart.


Hi,

This is due to the water not heating properly. I have put together some instructions on how to reset the control so you can use the dishwasher again and what to check for as to why it failed. Follow the link and let me know if it was helpful.

Flashing Clean Light

Our clean light flashes 7 times pauses and flashes 7 times again, we can not restart the unit whats could be wrong


Hi,

This machine was made by Whirlpool and the flashing clean light is a common error code for them.If the clean light is the one flashing then your dishwasher could have a heater circuit problem (depending on the age) or this could simply just be water colder than it is used to getting.

Repeatedly press the Heated Dry and Hi-Temp Wash(scrub) which ever yours has until all the LED lights come on, press cancel twice and try the dishwasher again making sure to run the water at the kitchen sink till it is hot before starting the dishwasher, if this trips and locks you have a problem with the heating element, or temp sensor.
Press the heated dry button followed by the normal cycle button, and then repeat once. You should see all of the lights come on for a second or two, and then the dishwasher will work again.

If you haven't already, take a look under the kick plate in front to see if there is a schematic tucked in there somewhere. Whirlpool has put their diagnostics for specific models on these.
I don't have the specific repair manual for you model.
So, if the above combination does not work here are two more that have worked for me.

HiTemp Wash + Air Dry + HiTemp Wash + Air Dry in less than 5 sec
or
Hi Temp Scrub/Scour + Air Dry + Hi Temp Scrub/Scour + Air Dry in less than 5 sec



Let me know, if you need further assistance.


Hope i helped you.


Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Dishwasher not responsive, just a blinking CLEAN light.


HI, this is a control fault that is located in the logic sector of the circuit board. You will need to replace the control in order to restore proper function.

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.
