Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDI01TJ - Multiple Color Built-in Dishwasher
Hi, my dishwasher has been acting up, the Add a dish and Rinse only led light up and flash, nothing else will happen, i changed the electronic board about a year ago and that seem to do the trick,Just recently it started doing it again and i replaced the board again,this time it lasted 2 weeks and the same lights are flashing, i have tried leaving the breaker off for about 30 + minutes , still wont work, any ideas? thanks joe......
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.

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
-high temp wash
...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).
