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. ;)

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.

Ford Focus CL 2003, Door open light keeps flashing, indicators either trip out or go double speed when door open light on.

At the door jam,check the condition of the pin switch. The switch may be cover with a boot.
Compare the condition of this pin switch to the working side.
Clean the general area and re-test.

When I turn on the dishwasher, the light on program 6 flashes but the program will not start.

Pull the power plug or turn off the circuit breaker for about 30 seconds, plug it back in or turn the breaker on and the diswasher brain should have reset. Good Luck.

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.
