Had same problem, first you need to find the location of ignitor double black wires from plug on board and flame sensor.single red wire. 4 red flashes means ground fault, I removed ignitor, cleaned with some scothchbrite, cleaned around screw holes(2) to reestablish ground, I even ran a wire from one of the mounting screws to a ground elsewhere. then I went on to the flame sensor witch will give you flashing yellow light. single red wire to sensor that has one screw holding in. Remove sensor carefully and do the same as the ignitor, clean with scothbrite. I did this a year ago and is still going!

Just bought a DW80H993 diswhasher and installed it. It will not run a cycle.

Hello. Please provide more specific information--the Samsung dishwasher you have has a child lock and delay wash feature on it--make sure neither is enabled--When you attempt to start a cycle, do you see lights on the control panel? Does the unit do anything at all or is it totally dead with no lights lit up? Are there any lights blinking or blinking in numeric patterns(ex 2 blinks, then 3-4 blinks)? Is the hot water turned on to the unit from under the sink? If the drain hose is connected to a food disposer, did you remove the knock-out from the drain hose connection inside the disposer prior to starting a cycle? These are important pieces of information needed to form a diagnosis as to what might be occurring. Thanks!

Lights blink but nothing works

Hi, disconnect the power supply for few minutes, say 5 minutes and then turn it ON. Check, if that helps. If not kindly revert with more details :-

1. Which light is flashing?
2. Is there any message like ' CL ' or anything you could see?
3. How old the machine is?
4. Is there any sequence in blinks like 7 blinks then pause and then 7 blinks?

Let me know,so that i could provide you with more accurate diagnosis.

Clean light is blinking. dishwasher won't turn on

it is a problem with the heating cycle.Dishwasher “Clean” Light Blinks 7 Times The electronic control looks for a temp. rise of 2° - 4° F.
If no temp rise, the control assumes a heater fault and blinks the clean LED 7x.
Check the heater circuit, water fill, wash pump operation, and neutral side door
Run a Diagnostic Cycle to reset the control.
All Electronic Controls
S.O.P. – Standard Operating Procedure Whenever an electronic control is suspected
to be the cause of a product failure: before replacing the control, disconnect and then
reconnect all of the wiring harness connectors to ensure proper electrical contact.
I hope this helps.

your furnace must have one. look to see where the large filter, that is the fresh air intake. it does not have to be out door air, just air.

Lights blinking

Sounds like it's either a glitch in the software or a bad heater. Does it blink 7x? You can clear that out so it's usable again by pressing a certain key sequence. I can't tell you the exact keys since I just know the thing by heart but it should be press the heated dry key then skip one and press the next one to the right and do that 3x and it will clear out the code. If it comes up again it probably is the heater. There should be a tech sheet under the bottom panel of the unit that has that sequence on it also. After hitting that sequence all the lights will come on. wait about 10 seconds and press cancel. Then you can use the washer again. Good luck.

Coleman mobile home furnace...Model number DGAA077BDTB...The furnace about a month ago started going out ( flash code- Combustion Air switch stuck closed)We replaced the thermostat on the wall and it...

I had the same errror code on my coleman furnace (3 flashes combustion air switch failed to close) but at first didnt realize there was even a light that gave codes..Anyways long story short, after searching many forums one guy mentioned about the furnace giving a false reading and talked about improper air flow ( coming in and going out) which isnt triggering the switch correctly. After thinking about it and after getting the furnace to run correctly every time I took the door off to tap on the switch (and other spots not knowing what the problem was yet) I always put the door right back on then the furnace would do the same thing (stop running). so I pulled the door off again got the furnace to work properly and left the door off and tested it. It ran great, it started and stopped like normal for a hour and realized I might not be getting proper air flow. Then I remembered I asked my roommate to change my filters for me while I was gone (which he did) and looked at them while I still had the door off and realized the filters were in backwards! which resticted the air flow so much the switch wouldnt operate fully. so check your air filters, something so stupid almost cost me a house visit by the furnace guy....this may not be everyones problem but maybe I will help someone save a house visit....I still cant believe that was my problem and the furnace is still running great.

Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher LIghts are blinking....

I just read this for the same problem: push sanitize, then heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, cancel, then open and close the door. It worked. The dishwasher is running correctly even as I type this.
