Re: Normal wash flashing Red

We have the same problem with kenmore model 66513839k600
we press light wash and normal wash lights up, we have to wait over a month for sears to service. This will be the second control panel they will install on warranty, a month is far too long a wait for service on any appliance.

All the panel lights glow after I reset (heated dry, normal, etc)?

Not sure what you mean by a temp restart only time lights should all be lit is if you placed the unit into diagnostic. Lets go one of two ways if you hit the normal wash button it lights along with heated dry you hit start button it flashes and won't go solid you have an open door switch, if everything is off and start light continues to flash you have a stuck key on the keypad.

I have a Kenmore elite dishwasher. The Pots and Pans red light is flashing and the Heated Dry light is solid red. Nothing I do will change that. I've tried pushing any combination of buttons and ...


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... Please post back if you need more information.

Miele g892 and just like everyone the red light comes on and dishwasher stops running> why cant you answer thic common problem>

The red light tell you there is a fault. You have to read the fault code and it will give you a general idea of the problem - to do this you have to enter the service mode of operation - close the door and turn the dishwasher on.
The Start/Stop light must be blinking. If the Start/Stop light is not blinking, press and hold
the Start/Stop button for at least 3 seconds to exit the cycle. The Start/Stop light should now be blinking.

Press and hold the Start/Stop button while turning the dishwasher on. Release the
Start/Stop button and immediately press it 2 more times. Flashing Intake/Drain and
Salt lamps and a lit Rinse lamp indicates successful accessing of services mode

Clean light keep on flashing

The solution cancel one time and you will see the red light, press another time and the red light will disapear, after press one time on heated dry and after press one time on normal wash after press start and it's suppose to work. For me it was the solution, I hope it will be the same for you.
