Check the high limit on the heating element and make sure its not tripped. If the high limit is fine check too see is there power going to the heating element and the amp drawing. Each leg should be reading 23.5 Approx.

Clean light is flashing

As an example on a kitchenaid dishwasher when the clean light flashes 7 times this is a control error that be corrected you would press Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry, Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry with the door open and then close the door and press cancel. If your unit were a whirlpool dishwasher you can press hi temp heated dry hi temp heated dry with the door open which does end up lighting all the led's and when you shut the door makes the unit cycle into the wash stage. after you hear the unit letting water into it listen for the wash cycle to start and then press cancel. After the unit drains then you can set your unit to wash again. I will await your reply as to what type of unit you have before continueing on with a exact solution for your unit. Thanks

Brand new Matytag MDB7749AWB Dishwasher does not work correctly. As soon as the power was turned on, all three cycle indicator lights ('Wash', 'Dry', and 'Clean') came on and always...

Try putting the unit into a test mode. This my clear your issues otherwise call for service.

One of two ways to do this.
In standby (no lights) Press the combination of buttons:
hi temp wash > sanitize > hi temp wash > sanitize > hi temp wash
All lights will come on and the washer will run a test cycle anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes.
If that button comb doesn't work use:
heated dry > sanitize > heated dry > sanitize > heated dry

Do these 'portable' dishwashers 'heat' water prior to washing? i have customer complaining bout the dishes not coming clean..yet the water entering the dishwasher is cold, does not appear to heat water...

Most dishwashers require a minimum 120 degree inlet water temp. The heating element will boost this up during the main wash cycle to aprox 140. Do not hook a dishwasher up to inlet water temps above 150.

Odd operation

This unit is a sanitizer, not a full fledged dishwasher. It is designed for restaurants and bars where the primary use is washing glassware. The behavior you describe is normal for this model. The manual can be found at the following link:
