Question about Kenmore 24 in. 16034 Built-in Dishwasher
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 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.
