Re: dishwasher won't start

It's the switch in the handle. I just took the black panel off and disconnected the wires to the switch and reconnected them and it is fine for today.

Re: dishwasher won't start

Check to see how it's loaded. If something is obstructing either of the spray arms it will not start. I had this same problem and checked to see if there was something impeding the arms - I found there was. Reloaded the unit and it's running like a champ now!

Re: dishwasher won't start

My problem was get this... ANTS! Apparently ants had gotten inside and disrupted the contact. I just had to clean out the ants and voila!! Put Bay Leaves around the unit to discourage ants(they hate the smell).

Re: dishwasher won't start

I have the same problem. The dishwasher isn't even a year and half old. It ran fine yesterday, but won't start now. If you figure out the solution, please post it. I will do the same.

The CLEAN light is flashing on my Kenmore QuietGuard3 , but it won't clean anything. It starts a cycle for a few minutes, stops and starts flashing clean again. Any suggestions?

You will have to reset the dishwasher. First try and turn off the mains power and back on after a short time. If the clean light flashing starts again then you go through the hard reset procedure.

press NORMAL WASH then HEATED DRY buttons one after the other until all the lights on the board lit up (3X's). The dishwasher will enter into a cycle; Press Cancel. This should stop the flashing.
If you are supplying dishwasher from hot water inlet then make sure the inlet water temperature stays within the recommended range of 145 deg F.

Clean light keeps blinking; dishwaher won't turn on

Hello Brian, welcome to FixYa.
Based on your post I understand your dishwasher is a Kenmore and the clean light is flashing and it won't start, correct ?
If so, this is usually an error code indicating there was a problem in the heating process the last cycle it ran, however if you could provide the complete model number I could speak specifically to whether it applies to your machine and potentially what to do about it.
Thank you for choosing FixYa and I look forward to your reply.

The F7 error code(light flashes 7 times) is a one of these, Flow meter failure. Flow meter defect. Water inlet valve defect or water inlet hose blocked.
So what you need to check is if the correct water level is in the tub,to check that start d/w let it fill and once you longer hear water entering,open door and the water should be level or just above the heat element, if not enough water first check water pressure to inlet valve,if pressure is good replace the water inlet valve part # 8531671 it could be picked up from your local appliance parts store,or online at;

If you have a reset or cancel button try that. Look in your manual for a reset
procedure or troubleshooting section. It is just stuck in a cycle and needs to be reset
or cancelled.
