SOURCE: Whirpool Quiet III Clean light blinks

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!

SOURCE: Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher LIghts are blinking....

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.

Dear friend,
ngfam at you service! happy to assist!


It's an electronic problem!
The lights are called codes and need to be diagnoed by a factory service person!!

We sell appliances for 65 years and I recommend this nation wide Factory repair service!

Call A&E Factory Service /They service nation wide

If the appliance is 10 years old or more,it may make sense not to invest any money to fix it!

Happy to assist you,
PLEASE GIVE ME A GOOD RATING BEFORE YOU SIGN OFF!

Blinking "Normal" light on a Maytag model


Hi


Open the door. Within 3 seconds press the following sequence --Try pressing normal wash, heated dry, normal wash, heated dry, normal wash, heated dry three times within 6 seconds and then press cancel to reset the dishwasher. If that doesn't help then try pressing Saini Rinse, Heated Dry, Saini Rinse, Heated Dry, Saini Rinse, Heated Dry or Saini Rinse, Air Dry, Saini Rinse, Air Dry, Saini Rinse, Air Dry 3 times in 6 seconds and then the Cancel Button. Close the door and press Cancel.
Blinking lights would stop and should be able to use your dishwasher normally. If the light is still blinking try and reset the power to the dishwasher and try again. If still the light is blinking then check for the connections on the keypad, it may be due to moisture or shorted connections on keypad.



Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Lights on the Asko D1996 keep blinking


This depends on the blinking pattern. Of the eight lights on the panel, if the four on the left blink on and then the right four lights blink on as the left ones go off, and keep blinking back and forth, that just means the mode has been set and the Start button pressed. After closing the door it should just continue on wherever it is in the cycle. (This is normal operation).
If you hold down the Start button, this resets the dishwasher. If you then close the door, nothing will happen because it thinks it's done.
If the lights are blinking in a different pattern, such as they all blink on and off in unison, that indicates an error condition and needs to be diagnosed. If the pump is not running constantly, then at least it's not because water is leaking out somewhere.

Kenmore dishwasher, model 665.170 344 01. "Clean" light keeps flashing and will not stop. Have tried everything in the manual and the light still will not stop flashing.


If the clean light flashes 7 times, pauses then repeats...

If the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it will stop working and lock the functions (clean light flashes 7 times, all buttons are non responsive).

To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...

-high temp wash
-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry

...all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle finish (1-2 minutes).
You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.

If the issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit (ie. element, thermostat or wiring). It rarely happens but it could also be the door switch not engaging properly when the door is closed (slightly bend the door latch down making sure it doesn't hit the door when you close it).

Lights flashing


The flashing lights usually indicate a jam or the flapper door not met which means a drink already dispensed. Just guessing here, but you may have a board problem. I have removed one dispensing drive motor and if I press that button all lights blink until I open the door and close it. Any chance you have a lot of ice buildup in the back? That could be causing a short or even caused connectors to loosen. A new connector board is $22 on partselect.com but that would again only be a guess. Check some of the other problems listed for other possibilities.
