You, my friend, have the dreaded 'blinking clean light.' This means that the electronic control has detected that for three consecutive cycles,
1. the heater hasn't come on
OR
2. the water hasn't come into the dishwasher
OR
2.5. the water came in, but wasn't spraying around inside.
OR
3. the heater came on, but the temperature probe did not detect a 3 F degree rise in temp in a certain alotted time. (Is the water supply unusually cold?)

Originally, this fault code could happen if any of these happened just once. Now they program the elec control to wait until the 3rd consecutive ocurrence.
First, let's clear that fault code.
Since you did not mention any unusual sounds, I will assume the water is filling and spraying around inside.
Press 'heated dry', 'normal', 'heated dry', 'normal'. This activated the test cycle, and clears any fault codes. After 10 seconds, press 'cancel'. Open the door and carefully see if the heating element came on. (It should be hot.)
If it did come on, it's an intermittent problem, and could be related to the door switch. Some earlier models would allow the dishwasher to run with only one of the two contacts closed, but the heater would not come on. Be careful to close the door tight each time. They have redesigned the switch (or is it the door latch?) to ensure both contacts get closed.
If the heater did not come on, then you might need (in order of higest to lowest probability) a heater, a heater thermostat, or the electronic control board (heater relay.)
I haven't ever seen a failed temperature sensor, though it is theoretically possible.
You can continue using your dishwasher until it is repaired. Though, you may have to reset the fault code 2-3 times a week.

Good luck!

Hi


If clean light is blinking then it may be an issue with heater circuit, door switch or wash pump, please reset the power to the dishwasher. After, 5 minutes check if you are still getting the same error. If yes, then it is a water heating fault. To resolve this error try pressing this reset sequence-- Heat Dry - Normal - Heat 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 . Now let the unit run for 2-3 minutes and then you press the Cancel/Drain button and allow it to completely drain and reset. If this doesn't work then it's an issue with the wash pump not pumping the water past the heater efficiently or due to lack of water to heat. Please make sure that heater is not open circuited and is heating the water efficiently. You'll have to check the heater using a multimeter; the meter should read between 3000 to 3300 ohms (Use multimeter on Rx1 ohm setting). If heater is fine then make sure water pressure is optimum and fill valve is working fine. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

I have a Quiet Partner III, when I press start it doe not come on. The clean light flashes when the door is open, but when I close it and try to start it nothing happens


The clean light is blinking due to an error in heating the water. I have put together some instructions on resetting the control so you can use the dishwasher and what to look for as far as cause.

Follow the link and let me know if it helps.

Whirlpool quiet partner I won't run just keeps blinking


is the cean light blinking 7 times and then repaeating?? If so this is a water heating fault and means that the computer sensed that the water temp didnt rise just 3deg in the last main wash cycle. If its not blinking 7times then repeat, it sounds like the user interface (membrane switches) have failed. Let me know more and i can help.

Frigidaire washer won't spin, belt seems to be ok. What else can I look for ?, Thank you. e-mail , OSUOWNSFOOTBALL@YAHOO.COM


Check your outlet filters, clean out. The machine will not spin if the filter is blocked. Also check your inlet into the machine. Clean screens on both ends of the pipes. Refit carefully. If you have manual, check for filter cleaning.
