Shorted out your control board when it got cracked.

Remove the kick plate of your dishwasher. There you should have the technical data sheet. Which will guide you through the automatic diagnostic process.

SOURCE: not working

Solution #3 is good, but you need to hit "High Temp Wash" and then "Heated Dry" back and forth 3x to reset the computer.

I believe its pressing heated dry, normal, heated dry, normal keys withing 6 seconds. There should be a tech sheet attached to the toe panel at the bottom front of the machine.

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 untill 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!!

Green power light only on trevi exclusive


When power is turned on, the coffee selection button should blink during warming up. If it is not blinking then the following i possible:
1- The electronic sensor is bad. It is clamp mounted on the boiler to sense temperature and send message to control board to turn the heating off when it is ready to make espresso. The blinking light will be fixed to display this.
2- The heating element on the boiler is bad and not heating. The electronic sensor cannot relay any temperature as it is.not sensing the heating.
3- The electronic control board is bad and not sensing the temperature.
The machine should be opened up to test the sensor or the neating elements, and replace what is bad..

What does it mean when my clean light blinks but I cannot cancel or reset it


Ah, the famous (or infamous) Clean-light blinking problem. Watch that blinking light.... Does it blink 7 times, pauses, and repeats? Or does it blink 3 times (or some other number). The most common problem is 7 blinks which means "water not heating error". This could be caused by a bad heating element, a bad thermal cutoff, a bad controller.

Check Fault Codes If the display lights are flashing and there is an error code in the display window, check the Error Codes guide on our website to determine which component has failed or is failing

Touchpad If the display lights are flickering for no reason, the touchpad might need to be replaced. Sometimes when the touchpad is defective the display lights are flashing randomly.

Touchpad and Control Panel If the lights are flashing on the display the entire touchpad and control panel assembly might be defective. If the display works but the dishwasher functions are all out of synch, or some of the buttons don't respond properly the entire touchpad and control panel might need to be replaced.

Heating Element Assembly If lights are flashing on the control panel, the heating element assembly might have burned out. The heating element assembly heats the water up to operating temperature. After a set amount of time if the temperature isn't reached a light on the control panel might start flashing. The heating element assembly can be checked for continuity with an Ohm meter.

Heating Element If lights are flashing on the control panel, the heating element might have burned out. The heating element heats the water up to operating temperature. After a set amount of time if the temperature isn't reached a light on the control panel might start flashing. The heating element can be checked for continuity with an Ohm meter.

Drain Pump If lights are flashing on the control panel, the drain pump might not be working properly. For two-wire drain pump motors check them for continuity using an Ohm meter. If it's defective YOU'LL need to replace it. Drain pumps are not repairable.

Dishwasher won't run. Replaced door latch and timer/selector unit. Into this POS for over 200 bucks right now, with nil result. Any other ideas? Clean light comes on so power is getting through it.


If it's KitchenAid or Whirlpool or Kenmore, and your clean light BLINKS and the heating element inside is ROUND - there is a problem with your control board and the element. There is a kit containing both, for the price of the heating element alone.
This might be the part you need

Whirlpool gold


First press your "Sani-rinse" button and the your "Heat Dry" button and toggle between them a couple times. This will reset your control module. If the clean light continues to blink then it means that your heating element needs replacing.  This is not a big job, either. You will need to order a new element and come back for instructions if you can't figure it out quickly....
