Question about Dishwashers
this is a blinking "clean light", this is a common problem with some
of the Kenmore
and Whirlpool models. I believe the problem is attributed to water supply
temperatures being too low when filling. Apparently, there are some sensitivity
issues with the temperature sensing circuits in some dishwashers. There is a
reset sequence that you can try to clear the fault. Push the NORMAL WASH then HEATED DRY
buttons in that sequence two to three times. The unit will enter diagnostics
mode, but can be stopped by pressing the CANCEL button. This will clear any
existing faults and should return the dishwasher to normal operation.
To keep the fault from returning, it is recommended that you run your hot water faucet in the kitchen until it runs hot. This will heat the water in the supply line for the dishwasher (most dishwashers are fed from the kitchen sink supply line). The theory is that if you fill the dishwasher with hot water from the start of the wash cycle instead of the cool water that is normally in the lines (especially if you have a hot water tank located far away from the kitchen), this should satisfy the requirements of the temperature sensing circuits. If the fault reappears, there should be a tech sheet located inside the lower panel under the door that explains what the fault is. The flashing light will be a series of flashes, followed by a pause. If you indeed have a component problem, it will depend on what the flashing light sequence is in determining WHAT component is bad. Let me know if this helps you. Post back with your comments or questions.
