SOURCE: Error Message coming up

Hi, i work on these machines on a regular basis and until very recently i was a Meiko service engineer- the code ERR203 means that there was no change detected at the boiler level switch during emptying- be it on the fill or rinse cycle. This fault is mostly caused by the booster pump failing to pull water but could also be caused by blocked rinse jets or a faulty boiler level switch. Hope this info is of use to you , Kitcheneer

Can you explain the issue in detail - is your dishwasher not working at all, or the buttons continue to be lit up, etc?

First and foremost, check the dooe switch to see if it is functioning properly.

Probably a keypad gone bad. Try replacing the keypad.

There is a troubleshooting guide behind the foot kick panel. It gives a sequence to test for a bad keypad. You can try that sequence to be sure.

Cancel Light Flashing on Kitchen Aid Dishwasher


I found this post elsewhere. It seems to have worked for me: Our KitchenAid KUDP series dishwasher went into a mode where it would not start and would only respond to the cancel/drain button. The clean light would flash 7 times in a row, stop, and then repeat. I read that the 7 flashes indicates an error code and that the dishwasher has detected a problem in the heater element circuit. I tried to reset the error mode by turning off power for 15 minutes, however, that did not work.
We called for a repair. The service person found that the dishwasher was completely fine except that it had gone into an error mode. The technician reset the error mode and charge us $115.00.

The reset sequence used was reported to be the following:
1) Crack the door open.
2) Within 3 seconds press the following sequence - Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry, Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry
3) Close and latch the door
4) Press the cancel button (the circle with the triangle in it)

We were told the dishwasher expects to see the dish water temperature rise in a certain way. If the water does not heat in this way, the dishwasher becomes confused and thinks the heater element has failed. In deed, this happened just following and extended power failure and our hot water tank was cool. I am curious if this code will work for anybody else with the same problem and save a service call and 115 bucks. Overall, this seems to be a serious logic flaw in the design.

I have a kitchen-aid dishwasher model # KUDio1ibl6 and it will not come on and the clean light flashes 7 times then pauses and blinks 7 time again. Do you have any Idea what this code stands for I do not...


Hello Asa,

The light blinking seven times is a error code specifically it's error #7 .The E-7 error indicates the part called the flow meter is bad. To clear that error code and get the dishwasher to start push within 3 seconds
HIGH TEMP WASH -HEATED DRY-HIGH TEMP WASH- HEATED DRY

then push CANCEL sereval times to dishwasher shuts off..it should start and run then

If the blinks 7 times again the flowmeter will need to be replaced

ON some models the "HIGH TEMP WASH" button is labled power scrub instead of high temp wash
so in that case push POWER SCRUB-HEATED DRY-POWER SCRUB-HEATED DRY then cancel as described above

In case the E-7 error returns and the flowmeter needs to be replaced the part number for it is W10195536

Clean light keeps blinking and washer will not function. Cancel runs the pump for 2 minute, but the blinking light keeps going with no functions working.


if the clean light is blinking that mean you dishwasher is having a heater issue. it is an error code. either your control board is bad or the heater or the ntc therm. if you take the bottom panel off you will see or should see a tech sheet that will tell you how to clear the error code or this website will help you. just enter your model number http://servicematters.com/docs/wiring/wiring_main.htm

Kitchenaid kudso1dlss3 clean light flashing cannot do a new cycle


I do not have the same model as you, my model is KUD01ILBS6 but I have the same problem. A service tech told me it was a error code and here is how to fix it.

1 open the dishwasher door
2 hit high temp scrub button
3 then hit energy saver dry button
4 do step 2 & 3 again
5 close the door
6 hit the cancel button
7 you can hit cancel button again then try to start your dishwasher

This works for me, you may have to do this every few months because there is a glitch in kitchenaid where if the water temp is not sensed right it will keep the dishwasher from working. It took me 3 service calls to find this out.
