The key is to not use the dishwasher as a garbage grinder.

I suggest that you witness the volume of water being discharged from the machine. If low volume, look inside for plugged screens.

Also, be sure to remove all food particles from the sprayer tips, which is not an easy task, get each and every piece, run machine and check again. then quit putting dirty plates in the machine, quick rinse = seriously better cleaning, and less unit maintenance.

Thank you, thank you!!! A repair service that came to fix my 4 year old Kenmore...


The blinking "clean light" is a common problem with some of the Kenmore and Whirlpool models dishwashers. The problem is usually attributed to water supply temperatures being too low when filling. Apparently, there are some issues with the temperature sensing circuits in some dishwashers that causes an error code to be generated if a certain water temperature is not achieved in a specified time interval (this time may differ between models). There is a reset sequence that you can try to clear the fault. Push the NORMAL WASH then HEATED DRY buttons in that sequence two to three times. The unit will enter diagnostics mode, but can be stopped by pressing the CANCEL button. This will clear any existing faults and should return the dishwasher to normal operation.

To keep the fault from returning, it is recommended that you run your hot water faucet in the kitchen until it runs hot BEFORE you start the dishwasher. This will heat the water in the supply line for the dishwasher (most dishwashers are fed from the kitchen sink supply line). The theory is that if you fill the dishwasher with hot water from the start of the wash cycle instead of the cool water that is normally in the lines (especially if you have a hot water tank located far away from the kitchen), this should satisfy the requirements of the temperature sensing circuits. If the fault reappears, there should be a tech sheet located inside the lower panel under the door that explains what the fault is. The flashing light will be a series of flashes, followed by a pause. If you indeed have a component problem, it will depend on the number of flashing lights in the sequence. Refer to the tech sheet to determine WHAT component is affected and how to troubleshoot.

Call sears and they can tell you normal cycle times according to your model. 1888.536.6673. Maybe argue with them to replace this unit since so many issues within 5 months.

My heater coil in my kenmore dish washer looks ashy, or burnt... not sure how to explain, but it is whitish, not black/dark


Without turning it on, put some white vinegar on a sponge or paper towel and rub it. Don't be real rough and don't scour it. What you see is mineral deposits from your water. The vinegar will dissolve them.

Dishwasher is not washing dishes.


Make sure your water is at least 120 degrees and change to a dishwasher detergent with a water softener and a rinse aid in it.
