SOURCE: Clean light flashes constanly. Won't clear out to start new cycle

If the clean light flashes 7 times, pauses, then repeats...

When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it will stop working and lock 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

...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.

If the issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit (ie. 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).

Dishwasher asko 1895 the pump the working the lights are flashing but the machine is not working


The lights flashing is telling that there is a fault in the dishwasher.
I am assuming you have emptied the dishwasher after the drain cycle failed to work due to the pipe block.
You will have to make a fresh start. Empty the dishwasher, turn the power mains switch off and on to reset the dishwasher.
Start a new cycle and see if flashing lights stop flashing. If still same problem you will have to note which light(s) are flashing and send a post on this page. There is a chance the impeller in the drain pump may have sufferred some damage due to drain block depending on how long the motor operated before you found the problem with the drain.

Lamona (Howdens) dishwasher. Start/Cancel/Pause button is not working.


Probably a bit late for the original poster, but I found this page after searching with the same problem. You can actually fix this yourself. I had exactly the same problem - if you take the front off the dishwasher, the switch module is inside a grey plastic moulding. If you remove the two cable plugs and remove the two screws holding the moulding in you can then take it out. Carefully open it by pulling back the clips, and inside is a small circuit board that slides out. On one side are the two microswitches. I got mine working again with some switch cleaner. If that doesn't work, you should be able to get a new switch soldered on by any electrical repairer. Obviously, yours may be slightly different as I don't know what model dishwasher you have, but mine is a Howden's/Lamona too, so it's probably very similar. Good luck.

Green start button won't stop blinking


START/RESET status indicator light flashing


You have pressed the indicator light flashing START/RESET pad while the START/RESET dishwasher is running. This will cancel the cycle. The light will stop flashing after the dishwasher drains (about 90 seconds).


Press the pad once to start the dishwasher. Press the pad a second time when the dishwasher is running only if you wish to cancel the cycle.


Power to the dishwasher was turned off while a cycle was running and power has just been restored to the dishwasher. The blinking lights indicate that the dishwasher is draining the potential water inside.


The light will stop flashing after the dishwasher drains. A new cycle will start automatically.


Good luck

Indecit dishwasher not circulating water


Checked that the motor was not seized by inserting slotted screwdriver through hole at back of machine to engage in slotted end of motor to spin up water circulating motor. Motor was not seized, so that was not the problem. Then took bottom off machine and on inspection found that the start capacitor which is bolted to side of motor was bulging and discoloured wher the terminals are. Replaced Start capacitor ( Less than £10.00) and machine motor started up. Machine behaved irratically at first, flashing lights etc.but got it to reset by switching on and off a couple of times, ran machine through cycle, now working ok.
