THE HUMMING NOISE THAT YOU ARE HEARING IS THE ELECTRONIC DRAIN MTR ACTIVATING BUT YOU HAVE NO WATER IN THE SYS. SO IT SOUND LOUDER AND DIFFERENT THE HUMMING IS THE LESS OF YOUR WORRIES THAT IS NORMAL BUT WHAT IS NOT NORMAL IS THE CLEAN LIGHT FLASHING IF IT FLASHES 7 TIMES THEN PAUSES YOU HAVEA BAD PROCESSING BOARD AND ALSO A HEATER ON SOME OF THE KM MODELS THE CONTROL BOARD AND HEATER IS SOLD AS A KIT. TO VERIFY THAT THIS IS THE CASE GO TO WWW.SEARSPARTS.COM . BUT FIRST ALSO CHECK TO SEE IF YOU HAVE A BURNT WIRE AT THE HEATER ASSEMBLY WHICH WOULD REQUIRE PULLING THE DW OUT. GOOD LUCK

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


That is a comon problem with that model. It is not sensing a temperature change in the water.

Push i believe it is heated dry and sani rinse going back and fourth between the two to clear the code and see if you can get it to complete a cycle. If it doesnt call sears and schedule service there is a service flash repair that should not cost you anything to repair the unit.

I need to reset the mother board on my Kenmore dishwasher. Do you know the code for the Kenmore model 665-17032402. I was told by sears that they used to give this out but, because of a fire hazard they...


The clean light sometimes flashes and just needs to be reset. To do so hit the keys in the following order. <Heated Dry> <Normal Wash> <Heated Dry> <Normal Wash> <Cancel>.
The dishwasher will go through a cancel cycle (drain the tub) and will then let you start it up again.

Green clean light keeps blinking


HI, Same thing happened to me today and Sears more than willing to charge me 200.00 for a 1 year service agreement. I found the answer on askmehelpdesk.com and the answer is: To reset a Kenmore Ultra Wash elite series dishwasher (stuck on clean) simply push heated/dry then normal wash and do the same thing again. Panel will reset itself and it hopefully will run normally again. Mine did and I am rejoicing! Julie
