I was able to reset it using this procedure:

1. Crack the dook open

2. Within 3 seconds, press these buttons in this squence: Hi Temp Wash, Heated dry, Hi Temp Wash, Heated Dry

3. Close door

4. Press Cancel

That should clear the Blinking LED. It appears this is a common problem. The worst thing is they charge to come out for this.

    BTW, if the Hi-Temp Wash button doesn't work, use the Normal Wash button instead when doing the reset sequence. I might have gotten my botton mixed up, but either way, it reset and cleared the error code.

    AMAZING ! Been 3 weeks without using the dishwasher, your code worked perfectly, with the button normal wash as you suggested. Thanks a bunch ! Etienne from Saint-Eustache

I have the same problem. I have to go through the test mode at least three times just to wash one load of dishes. This dishwasher is a lemon. Sears she recall it. The techs say that they have at least 50 calls a week with the same problem. We need to hire a lemon law attorney and sue the pants off them. If you here anything email me please.

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.

Hi


If clean light is blinking then it may be an issue with heater circuit, door switch or wash pump, please reset the power to the dishwasher. After, 5 minutes check if you are still getting the same error. If yes, then it is a water heating fault. To resolve this error try pressing this reset sequence-- Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal or High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry or Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry, Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry. Now let the unit run for 2-3 minutes and then you press the Cancel/Drain button and allow it to completely drain and reset. If this doesn't work then it's an issue with the wash pump not pumping the water past the heater efficiently or due to lack of water to heat. Please make sure that heater is not open circuited and is heating the water efficiently. You'll have to check the heater using a multimeter; the meter should read between 3000 to 3300 ohms (Use multimeter on Rx1 ohm setting). If heater is fine then make sure water pressure is optimum and fill valve is working fine. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

I need to reset my Kenmore Elite dishwasher but i don't know how.


Hello,

follow the below instructions:

Unlock your Kenmore dishwasher control panel by pressing and holding the "Heated Dry" button for four seconds.

Press a series of four buttons in quick succession. Press "Heated Dry," "Normal Wash," "Heated Dry" and "Normal Wash" to instruct your Kenmore dishwasher to run a short diagnostic test

Wait for two minutes while your Kenmore dishwasher runs its diagnostic test.

Press the "Cancel/Drain" button once your dishwasher has completed its diagnostic test. This should reset your dishwasher control panel and stop the "Clean" light from blinking repeatedly.
Good luck.

Flashing clean light and wont start. Is there a sequence of buttons to reset the switchboard?


sani rinse---heated dry---sani rinse---- heated dry.. all the lights on console should light then close the door, let run for 20 -30 secs, and cancel the cycle, if the problem happens again yo need t call a servicer. 1 time maybe a fluke but to happen again indicates a heating, issue somewhere(or a lack of heating)
