SOURCE: Clean Light Flashes

I found this post elsewhere. It seems to have worked for me: Our KitchenAid KUDP series dishwasher went into a mode where it would not start and would only respond to the cancel/drain button. The clean light would flash 7 times in a row, stop, and then repeat. I read that the 7 flashes indicates an error code and that the dishwasher has detected a problem in the heater element circuit. I tried to reset the error mode by turning off power for 15 minutes, however, that did not work.
We called for a repair. The service person found that the dishwasher was completely fine except that it had gone into an error mode. The technician reset the error mode and charge us $115.00.

The reset sequence used was reported to be the following:
1) Crack the door open.
2) Within 3 seconds press the following sequence - Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry, Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry
3) Close and latch the door
4) Press the cancel button (the circle with the triangle in it)

We were told the dishwasher expects to see the dish water temperature rise in a certain way. If the water does not heat in this way, the dishwasher becomes confused and thinks the heater element has failed. In deed, this happened just following and extended power failure and our hot water tank was cool. I am curious if this code will work for anybody else with the same problem and save a service call and 115 bucks. Overall, this seems to be a serious logic flaw in the design.

SOURCE: Clean light flashing 7 times. Can't start the machine

Thank you so much! I have not used my dishwasher for almost 2 years. I called a repair man the first time the "clean" light started flashing. He pushed some buttons, and 3 minutes later he was gone with a smile ( after having left a $100.00 repair bill). I have been contacting Kitchenaid and my dealer for months. No help - no service.
 Nothappy, I fixed the problem with your help. 3 minutes later and the machine is chugging away.  I will never buy a Kitchenaid product again. Not because the products aren't good but - the after service is horrible.

If the clean light flashes 7 times, pauses, then repeats...

When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it will stop working and lock 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...

-high temp wash
-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry

...all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle 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 (ie. 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).

Dishwasher motor starts and stops

Hey Bill,
Not professing to be any kind of a dishwasher repairman but I have had a similar issue with the start and stop thing and it turned out to be the timer motor had started to go, and in going it 'burned' a couple of sets of the contacts as well. Check with a local appliance repair centre and see first if they agree with me, and if they have anyone who can rebuild the timer - Typically not too hard to get access to and remove - In my case in Canada, it had to go to Toronto pre-paid but $70 was cheaper then a new dishwasher and it's worked great for years

Normal Cycle Led Flashes and add a dish flashes with two blank lines in time window. Nothing responds. Model KUDP01DLBL3


Thanks for using FixYa. This issue can be either due to a faulty door latch or door lock switch which is not engaging itself. And, if the door latch will not engage the dishwasher will sense it as open door and will not start the cycle.

The light also blinks when the dishwasher detects a no-fill condition. You’ll need to get access to the fill valve by removing left panel, look at back to see where valve is when you get to it remove one of the wires and set meter to ohms setting and put a lead on each tag on valve. The reading should be about 3.6k ohm if you don’t get a reading then the valve is at fault. I'll also suggest you to check the detergent dispenser solenoid. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Greetings from Downunder, i have a HDWSE12 dishwasher Rinse aid light flashes all the time and it won t go. I put dish liquid in rinse aid container - still flashes. Don't normally have to use rinse...

the rinse aid compartment has to be one of the biggest things in your unit. it helps with drying process or you will have wet dishes, helps with spots, and also with the cleaning process, this is what you can do . add jet dry or rinse aid not soap .fill compartment then close door ,then raise and lower door 3times then open the compartment door and add more repeat this process until you cant add anymore. this will pull all of the air out of the dispenser and allow you to fully fill compartment . the light should go off .

We have a kitchenaid KUDS25SHBL1, serial number FK1130619. It doesn't work well and we think it might be old. It came with the house, so we're not sure the year. How can we tell? We appreciate your help:)

Residue left on dishes after washing. Looks like mineral deposits. Unsure if this is a dishwasher or water softener problem. Also rinse aid dispenser not working. Light that tells you to add does not work.

Bits of food on glasses

I have the same problem, and sometimes, when I add salt to my water softener, the problem goes away until the next time I need to add salt. Other times, I have no idea when I'm going to have the crud in the glasses. I've tried different detergents, rinse agents and even different shaped glasses. Seems the glasses which have slightly larger bottoms than tops are worse.
