Re: Diswasher not working

If you have a Kitchenaid. You need to press in this order.... high temp, energy saver dry, high temp, energy saver dry, the lights will all start blinking, after they are done the cycle will start. Press cancel twice. ;)

Re: Diswasher not working

Hoffy, if this is a Kenmore or Whirlpool, do the following key-dance, high temp wash, heated dry, high temp wash, heated dry. If you don't have heated dry, then air dry. This will reset the board. All the lights will light up and go through a diag test mode. You can advance it through by pressing the start button. Now don't go giving this a crappy rating if this is not a Kenmore or WP, as you didn't post a model number for me to scope it out. Catriver.

Hi, if the clean light flashes it is indicating the was no rise in water temperature during the water heating cycle. This link below will explain things that could cause it and tell you how to reset the control so you can wash for now. Let me know if you have questions.

Be sure to follow the 'key dance' just as specified'

Stainless Steel- LitchenAid diswasher will not star

This doe seem that the anti flood system has triggered. This device puts the machiene in pump out mode and shuts off the input water supply.
The device is a safety device that triggers once it detects a water leak (pipe / clamp) and consists of a polystireene float and micro switch at the floor of the washer. First check to see if the float has activated the micro switch and then dry the machiene floor and check for leaks.

Diswasher malfunction - won't start clean light flashes 7 times The clean light keeps flashing green. Can't get the washer to start. The only operation it will do, is drain when the cancel / Drain button...

This information may help in your situation. This can be a common problem on some Whirlpool manufactured dishwashers. The following link explains how you may be able to clear the blinking clean light problem:

Now, keep in mind all dish washers are not alike and have different panel options. If you do not have the same set up that I have mentioned, the tech sheet for your dishwasher will explain the touch pad functions. The tech sheet is located behind the lower toe panel under the door and lists the proper sequence of buttons to push for diagnostics and troubleshooting.

NOTE: Sometimes the tech sheet is located behind the inner door panel. You will need to remove the screws securing the inner panel to access it if this is the case. Make sure you turn off the main power breaker before doing so.

Sometimes this can be a momentary glitch in operation. However, if the problem keeps reoccuring the number of flashes is an indication of which circuit is causing your problem. Again, refer to your tech sheet to determine this.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you solve your problem.

The cleaning LED flashing and dishwater not working

The blinking clean light is an indication of a malfunction. Which circuit is causing the problem is determined by the number of flashes. Sometimes these error codes can be erroneous, however. If you wish to reset the light to see if you have a glitch, or a legitimate problem, the following link may offer you some assistance:

If the error reappears you will need to refer to the tech sheet that comes with your appliance. The sheet is usually located inside the lower toe panel under the door.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

PS Your dishwasher may have a different series of buttons to push to reset the error, but the steps are similar. If you do not have the same configuration as outlined in the link I provided, refer to your tech sheet.

Kenmore dishwasher, model 665.170 344 01. "Clean" light keeps flashing and will not stop. Have tried everything in the manual and the light still will not stop flashing.

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

If 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).

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).
