    high temp wash
    -heated dry
    -high temp wash
    -heated dry

    I don't have these options on my KitchenAid. When I turned the Breaker back on the display went to 2 and then the pump started to drain but shut off in about 10 seconds and then the Normal Light started to Flash, When I turn the breaker off and then back on it repeats the above cycle and then the Normal light starts to flash.



    The buttons I have from left to right are

    Baked on Cookware

    Normal

    Light China

    Quick CleanUp

    Rinse Only

    Hot Temp Scrub

    Sani Rinse

    Econo Saver Dry

    Delay

I recommend unplugging the unit for a few hours. In the meantime of it being unplugged, press and hold start or power button for 5 full slow seconds, wait half hour more and see if it corrects the problem. Most likely it will. Otherwise if for some small chance it does not help, then I think hardware failure is possibility like bad control board. But I first would check drain & screen, and also the pump.

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. 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

-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry


All the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cycle 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 (i.e. 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).


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Rylee

Why won't my Kenmore dishwasher display work properly?


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you


Heating Element

If lights are flashing on the control panel, the heating element might have burned out. The heating element heats the water up to operating temperature. After a set amount of time if the temperature isn't reached a light on the control panel might start flashing. The heating element can be checked for continuity with an Ohm meter.

Check Fault Codes

If the display lights are flashing and there is an error code in the display window, check the wiring diagram and tech sheet in the dishwasher that will provide information on the fault.


Drain Pump

If lights are flashing on the control panel, the drain pump might not be working properly. For two-wire drain pump motors check them for continuity using an Ohm meter. If it's defective You'll need to replace it. Drain pumps are not repairable.

Touchpad and Control Panel

If the lights are flashing on the display the entire touchpad and control panel assembly might be defective. If the display works but the dishwasher functions are all out of synch, or some of the buttons don't respond properly the entire touchpad and control panel might need to be replaced.

Touchpad

If the display lights are flickering for no reason, the touchpad might need to be replaced. Sometimes when the touchpad is defective the display lights are flashing randomly.

Why are lights flashing on my dishwasher's control panel?


There is a button configuration that you can press to make the unit reset on some you would close the door and push normal wash heated dry then normal wash then heated dry on others it would the econo wash button then heated dry then the econo/ heated dry this pattern starts the unit and then puts it into the drain cycle and resets the control which allows you to start washing again. If you can name off all the buttons you have I can tell you exactly which ones to perform this reset in the unit. I await your reply
Rick
p.s this also happens on whirlpool models as well right after the warranty runs out so you end up paying the high service charge for a tech to walk in you door push a few buttons then collect a fee over 169.00 which is ridiculous.

Hi, this is the reset code: Push/Press 1. Heat Dry 2. Normal 3. Heat Dry 4. Normal

Wait about 2 minutes as the controller resets itself. You should see all the leds flash on and then wash and rinse leds stay on for about 30 seconds. A minute or so later it will start working....

Blinking "Normal" light on a Maytag model


Hi


Open the door. Within 3 seconds press the following sequence --Try pressing normal wash, heated dry, normal wash, heated dry, normal wash, heated dry three times within 6 seconds and then press cancel to reset the dishwasher. If that doesn't help then try pressing Saini Rinse, Heated Dry, Saini Rinse, Heated Dry, Saini Rinse, Heated Dry or Saini Rinse, Air Dry, Saini Rinse, Air Dry, Saini Rinse, Air Dry 3 times in 6 seconds and then the Cancel Button. Close the door and press Cancel.
Blinking lights would stop and should be able to use your dishwasher normally. If the light is still blinking try and reset the power to the dishwasher and try again. If still the light is blinking then check for the connections on the keypad, it may be due to moisture or shorted connections on keypad.



Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.
