Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

I have a Kenmore Elite Dishwasher Model 665.172824000. We think it stopped part way throught the dry cycle. The green "Clean" light has been flashing since in 7 flash cycles non stop. I tried pushing the Cancel button, it starts the drain pump then stops and we are back to where we started. I tried to start a new wash cycle but when I close the door and push the start button it just give 3 quick red flashes and then nothing but the green clean light flashing again. I shut the breaker off for a while hoping the unit may reset but that did not help.

So sorry but the partsdirect site for sears locked down my computer. Check where the drain hose connects to your pump and see if there is a small device the hose connects to that has 2 wires going to it. If it does unplug the wires, turn power off, wait 1 minute and turn power back on and see if it works with this disconnected. If it does you will need to replace this. It is like a sensor that says there is too much debris. Stupid part that was totally unnecessary in the first place. Sorry about the inconvenience.

Hold down the "HEATED DRY" button for 4 seconds to unlock.
Try to press these botton in sequence,Heated Wash, Heated Dry, Heated Wash, Heated Dry.release your hand, the unit will go into diagnostic mode. that is all leds will ON for a few seconds,and start normal operations.
If that does not work, you might need to check the electronic control board if the ribbon is seated properly.
Finally solution, is to change the electronic control board.

SOURCE: no power suddenly on the control panel... kenmore

Kenmore dishwashers should be recalled!! Their poorly designed computer circuit boards are all malfunctioning around 15 months. Look on the inside top of your door. Do you see a instructions? There should be some about your Heat Dry button and holding it down for 4 seconds to reset your computer board. Read and try it first. It's like rebooting a computer.

How to reset Kenmore Elite 665-16572202 Dishwasher...clean light blinks 7 times pauses then repeats. My model does not have a Heated Dry button it has an Air Dry button.


Here's the key sequence(s) to use, depending on how your keys are labeled:
Heated Dry - Normal - Heated Dry - Normal; or
High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry; or
Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry, Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry; or
High Temp Wash, Heated Dry, High Temp Wash, Heated Dry.

This will start the diagnostic cycle. Let the dishwasher run for a few minutes, and then press Cancel to stop the dioagnostic cycle and clear the error. Please note, that this clears the error, but if you haven't found the cause (water-not-heating error), the condition will come right back the next time you run the dishwasher.

It sounds like you just need to reset the controller. This is done by running (or partially running) a diagnostic cycle, which will clear the error. Here's how to do it: Depending on the model, and the keys you have, press the following sequence of keys quickly (with less that 1 second between key presses:
Heated Dry - Normal - Heated Dry - Normal; or
High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry; or
Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry, Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry; or
High Temp Wash, Heated Dry, High Temp Wash, Heated Dry.
You will know that you have entered the diagnostic cycle when all the lights light up. Let it run for a few minutes, and then press Cancel to stop the diagnostic cycle and clear the error.

Note: On some of the newer Whirlpool, Kenmore, KitchenAid dishwashers, you start the diagnostic cycle by rapidly pressing the 3 left-most keys in the following sequence: 1 2 3, 1 2 3, 1 2 3.

Kenmore elite dishwasher stops in mid cycle green clean light flashes 8 times pauses and then flashes one more time


Float Switch

The float switch may be hung up and this can cause the dishwasher to be stuck in a cycle. see the diagram

Timer / Control

If your dishwasher gets stuck in a cycle first try shutting off the breaker for at least 5 minutes if this does not correct the problem you will need to replace timer/electronic control.

Our Kenmore Elite Dishwasher has a blinking green light next to the clean cycle. It won't reset. We changed the motor and this has been going on ever since. Do you know what we need to do to fix it....


Hello

Blinking green light can be reset by following two buttons in sequence: press HIGH TEMP WASH-HEATED DRY buttons in sequence around 3-4 times so that the control reset itself. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Clean cycle light is flashing


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If the clean light flashes, pauses, and then repeats. When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (clean light flashes, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.

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


Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

...all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle finish (1-2 minutes).
You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.

Kenmore elite dishwasher


I had the same problem when I bought it and it just happened again; the problem is solved by ressting the control panel: Hi Temp ---> Heated Dry two or three times. It kind of goes into a testing cycle and the clean blinking light goes off.

Clean light keeps blinking and I can't start a new cycle


Puppa, clear the fault by pressing the keys in this order: high temp scrb--air dry--high temp scrub--air dry. Or, depending on your model..Sani rinse--air dry--sani rinse--air dry. The dishwasher will enter the service mode. Let it do it's thing or advance it through it by pressing the start key. The fault came from the board not sensing a rise in the water temp. Make sure to run the hot water before starting the dishwasher. The heating element runs through the nuetral side of the door switch so make sure the d/w is level and the door switches are all making. The element itself could be at fault. Catriver...post back
