My delay light has come on and I cant get the dishwasher to start. The delay light goes out after the time has expired but if you try to move it to the start position the light comes on again


The Control is programmed to stop running and not allow any further cycles if it detects a water heating problem (no temperature increase detected in heated Main Wash on 3 consecutive cycles). The Control will flash the Clean LED 7 times repeatedly and will disable the Start/Resume key until cleared.

To clear and reset the control press in this order: Heated Dry ? Normal ? Heated Dry ? Normal and then let the unit run for 1-2 minutes and then press Cancel and let the dishwasher complete the cancel cycle. The dishwasher should operate normally again unless it does not detect a temperature rise in the main wash cycle.

It could be caused by a Heater circuit problem if it continues to stop and flash the Clean light.

It could have one of the following failures:
Open in heater.
Open connection or component in heater circuit.
Faulty heater drive circuit on control.
It can also be caused by the wash pump not pumping water past the heater efficiently.

Will not cycle. clean light flashing 7 times and then goes out, and then flashes 7 times, and this is a constant sequence


Hi




If clean light is blinking 7 times then it may be an issue with heater circuit, door switch or wash pump. If yes then 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. 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 for further assistance.

The "clean" light blinks 8 times, then there is a pause, then it blinks once. The dishes are clean but not dry, as if it has not completed the drying cycle. We had an engineer out to fix it who said it...


I'm not familiar with Kenmore but it sounds like a faulty heater element. The flashing 'clean' light normally means a water flow problem (blocked pump etc) but since it's washing that isn't the problem. After washing they dry with steam, which needs a heater.
It may be a problem with the board, as your engineer thought, but i would sooner replace the heater, but they are not easy to reach.
A suds sensor may be present, should be a plastic grille or hole in the side or back wall halfway up, this you can flush with a garden hose, messy but it usually works!

Clean light is blinking. dishwasher won't turn on


it is a problem with the heating cycle.Dishwasher “Clean” Light Blinks 7 Times The electronic control looks for a temp. rise of 2° - 4° F.
If no temp rise, the control assumes a heater fault and blinks the clean LED 7x.
Check the heater circuit, water fill, wash pump operation, and neutral side door
switch.
Run a Diagnostic Cycle to reset the control.
REPLACING THE CONTROL WILL NOT RESOLVE THE CONDITION.
All Electronic Controls
S.O.P. – Standard Operating Procedure Whenever an electronic control is suspected
to be the cause of a product failure: before replacing the control, disconnect and then
reconnect all of the wiring harness connectors to ensure proper electrical contact.
I hope this helps.

How do you reset the whirlpool gu2400 xtp83 dishwasher. the clean light is flashing. The unit will not start


Can be caused by detection of a heater circuit problem. You can reset by running the diagnostic cycle. To turn of the diagnostic cycle, press: HEATED DRY button, then NORMAL button, HEATED DRY button again, then NORMAL button. The cycle runsfor ~22 mins. When it completes, the blinking light should go out. You can then try running the dishwasher again. If the problem comes back, the heater element or Thermister may need to be replaced

Blinking Clean light in Whirpool dishwasher


Control is programmed to stop running and not allow any further cycles if it detects a water heating problem (no temperature increase detected in heated Main Wash on 3 consecutive cycles). Control blinks the Clean LED 7 times repeatedly and disables the Start/Resume key until cleared. Running Diagnostics clears the control and allows it to operate again. The water heating problem must be fixed or the control will stop running again. See potential causes below. Heater circuit problem: ■ Open in heater. ■ Open connection or component in heater circuit. ■ Faulty heater drive circuit on control. 1. Check operation of heater in Diagnostics cycle. 2. Unplug dishwasher or disconnect power. 3. Check resistance of heater and all components and connections in the water heating circuit or heat dry circuit.

My clean light is flashing....call service to check heater?


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

When 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). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water. Check the element for damage (burnt/shorted).

To clear the flashing light 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 cycle 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).

Furnace short cycles


turn electric off to heater, there should be a light switch on the side of the heater that cuts electric off to the heater. find the flame sensor, unplug wire to it and remove from heater being careful not to touch it with your hands or fingers, because of the oils in our skin. you can touch the part that the wire plugs to. when you get it out take fine emery cloth and clean the probe side or the sensor side real good and reinstall it. plug the wire back in and try heater. it should work fine. the sensors sole purpose is to detect flame and when it gets dirty with carbon it cant. so the sensor false reads and tells the heater its shooting raw gas into the heater and the heater shuts down, or short cycles, its there incase the ignighter fails. hope this helps you. it cost me 105.00 for this info. write it down in your owners manual so you dont forget it. the symptoms and the cure.
