Look in your user manual. There is a re set combination. When you press certain buttons consecutively it will re-set the machine. I am not sure what what type of machine you have, but most newer machines work like that

How do I stop Lights flashing


You may have the child-lock or control-lock function activated. Or if you have the short-cycle activated, you will not be able to activate the high-temp or sani-wash functions, because the dishwasher will not have time to heat the water to the required temperature.

Follow these steps to set the Button Lock function:

3. Start the washing program.

4. Press Button Lock for approximately 5 seconds, or

until the Button Lock indicator light flashes.

5. Button Lock indicator light flashes for approximately

My dishwasher isn't working. The clean button


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If the clean light flashes 7 times, pauses, and then repeats this occurs when the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks 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...

All the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cycle 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 (i.e. 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).

Lock on light flashing. Dishwasher will not do


Hi

This is a child lock feature to stop unwanted operation of the buttons. The usual way to cancel this on a Kenmore machine is to press and hold the "No heat dry" button for longer than 4 seconds. This should cancel the lock and resume normal function.

Hope this helps. Please do rate this answer. Thanks.

Kenmore dishwasher Lock On light flashing


holding the button for four seconds will not do it, you have to hold it until the light stops blinking and
will go back to normal, normall takes more than four seconds to unlock the unit, this is something
the sears repair techs know becouse the are trained on all this things but, they will not share this things, becouse thats how they make money

"3 second" light flashing


Pard, does your serial number end with either WS or WU? If so, Maytag had a issue with the main board, triac shorting and possibley damaging the motor windings. If your serial numbers fall under this, you are probably covered under the service flash. Im not really sure what you mean by the 3 second button flashing. Check the numbers first and post back.
