Question about Kenmore 16602 / 16604 / 16609 Built-in Dishwasher
The green clean light just keeps blinking. It won't cancel, and there is no water in the bottom. My little grandkids have been here, pushing buttons and I wonder how to reset the dishwasher. Sears won't help me over the phone and I can't afford a service call... I know there is a sequence of buttons to push, but don't know what it is. Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving! Jeanne
Tips for a great answer:
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. 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...
