Does not go thru dry cycle, clean light blinks 7 times

I cannot seem to get this problem fixed. Dishwasher stops mid-washing cycle and clean light blinks 7 times. It then needs to be reset. My repairman has replaced the control panel and door latch. This has not helped. We have already spent $250 and still do not have a working dishwasher. Any ideas on what will fix this problem?

    clean light blinks 7 times... Have never had this problem until installing a tankless water heater , and using a delay cycle. How do I get the washer to reset? Have tried cycling power etc but no solution yet. Is there a manual reset on the unit?

Clean light blinking is a tricky problem to find and cure can be a few different issues.heres an edited down version of official manufacture explaination,its been an issue (I would call manu for assisstance in repairing this further)
A heater fault detection program has been added to the electronic control to check for temperature rise and shut down dish washer. If the temperature rise is less than the criteria, then the unit will drain and blink the clean light 7 times. The Proper incoming water temperature should be between 120°- 140° F.
Possible causes of insufficient temperature rise would include wires off at thecontrol, heating element, thermistor,inlet valve, door switch, motor or capacitor, failure of any of the above components or siphoning of the water during fill.

Remove the front door panel and look for a broken wire.  Usually the broken wire is about 1/3 of the way up from the bottom of the door.  The wire tends to get stuck into the insulation causing the break.  Repair the wire connection and then cover the affected wire harness with a plastic cover to separate the harness from the black insulation.  If there is no broken wire, then the thermistor needs to be replaced.  That will require the entire unit removed to access from the bottom of the dishwasher.  Thermistor failures are very, very rare.

Blinking Clean light in Whirpool dishwasher


Control is programmed to stop running and not allow any further cycles if it detects a water heating problem (no temperature increase detected in heated Main Wash on 3 consecutive cycles). Control blinks the Clean LED 7 times repeatedly and disables the Start/Resume key until cleared. Running Diagnostics clears the control and allows it to operate again. The water heating problem must be fixed or the control will stop running again. See potential causes below. Heater circuit problem: ■ Open in heater. ■ Open connection or component in heater circuit. ■ Faulty heater drive circuit on control. 1. Check operation of heater in Diagnostics cycle. 2. Unplug dishwasher or disconnect power. 3. Check resistance of heater and all components and connections in the water heating circuit or heat dry circuit.

I just read this for the same problem: push sanitize, then heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, cancel, then open and close the door. It worked. The dishwasher is running correctly even as I type this.

Dishwasher lights blinking


QuietGuard3: Clean light flashing 7 times? Press Heated Dry, press Normal Wash, then press Heated Dry again and press Normal Wash again (that's 4 button-presses) and that should fix it.

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
