Re: light flashing

There was a problem with the heating cycle , the seven flashes indicates the temp never reached the setting. You can try running a service cycle that will reset the control, then try running a normal cycle if it stops agin will have to find the part causing the trouble believe they actually came out with a revised heating element on this. to run service cycle press heated dry , normal, heated dry, normal within six sec then the d/w should step through a service cycle.

Re: light flashing

The solution suggested was only a tempoary fix- the customer(you) can finish the load-but you need a new heater element and if you continue the "fast fix" you rish a fire.

Machine will,not fill and green light keeps flashing

If it flashes seven times, then pauses then flashes seven again, it means the unit could not heat the water in the alloted time and therefore it shuts off. Could be bad heater or more likely bad heater relay on main control.

First, press and hold down Cancel and see what happens. That may reset the cycle.

The clean light flashes clean, seven times. I can reset the machine, but the problem persists. How do I determine if it is the heating element?

Kitchen Aid models with the stainless steel tanks flashing clean light requires changing out both the heating element and the electronic control due to a change in voltage on the heating elements. By ordering the heating element, it comes with the electronic control. For your particular model it is a part #8194200. Just shop around to the different parts stores online, to get the best price. This will fix your problem.

My Whirlpool DU1145XTP won't turn on. Clean light

Check the themistor in the control panel. Radio Shack sells these for about $1.30 each. I replaced the one in my dishwasher three years ago and have had no issues since.

Kenmore DW blinking clean light 7 times, pausing, blinking 7

This may help in your situation. The following link explains how you may be able to clear the blinking clean light problem:

Now, keep in mind all dish washers are not alike and have different panel options. If you do not have the same set up that I have mentioned, the tech sheet for your dishwasher will explain the touch pad functions. The tech sheet is located behind the lower toe panel under the door and lists the proper sequence of buttons to push for diagnostics and troubleshooting.

NOTE: Sometimes the tech sheet is located behind the inner door panel. You will need to remove the screws securing the inner panel to access it if this is the case. Make sure you turn off the main power breaker before doing so.

Sometimes this can be a momentary glitch in operation. However, if the problem keeps reoccuring the number of flashes is an indication of which circuit is causing your problem. Again, refer to your tech sheet to determine this.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you solve your problem.

Light flashing

reset the dishwasher by touching heated dry and normal let it run through that cycle then through a normal cycle got the error blink again. Reset dishwasher by touching heated dry and normal, ran the test cycle, next ran a normal cycle but turned off the heated dry. This allowed the dishwasher to run through a complete cycle did not get the error blink and confirmed that the heating element was out.
