Clean button is flashing

Started the dishwasher. Was going. time remaining read 75 min. Went down to 63 min. then made this horrible noise and stuck at 63 min. Cancelled and re-started. Was going ok until 62 minutes remaining the went down to 2 min. remaining and clean light flashing. Hit cancel and went into the start mode with the lines in the time remaining spot. Hit cancel went back to 2 minutes and clean light flashing. That was 2 days ago and the clean light is still flashing.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If the clean light flashes, pauses, and then repeats. When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (clean light flashes, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.

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



Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

I just tried the high temp, heated dry, high temp, heated dry. All the control panel lights lit but if I press clear after that it's the same flashing clean light.

Please clarify what you mean by "..but when I take it out it is perfectly clean.." are you saying the water in the filter area is clean.

Turn the power off and take out all the water by hand using a small container. Turn the power back on.

If there is no change in the fault, it is likely the flood switch at the base of the dishwasher is triggering and shutting the machine down.

Started to get a clicking noise from the electic panel of my Frigidare PLDB998 dishwasher for a few loads and then it went dead. Its only a few years old


Did you ever find a solution? I have what sounds like the same problem. The time keeps ticking down but it flashes between CL and the time while the clicking sound is going, and it sometimes make a clunking sound while this is happening as well.

Lock on light flashing


I finally decided to calm down and use my head and managed to solve the problem. I read the instructions that are on the top of the dishwasher door. ( Smart move on my part HUH!) It said that when the door lock light is on everything is disabled. Hold the air/dry button down for 4 seconds and the lock light will go out. Guess what, IT WORKED. Here is what I learned from this. Always read all instructions. I spent $9.95 for an answer that was right in front of me. Humans can be so dumb I am!!!!

Dishwasher making loud humming noise


The most common cause of the hum/grinding sound, and often poor cleaning - is a blocked filter or debris stuck below that filter.
Pretty easy fix: Get a phillips screwdriver near by. Pull out the lower rack (the upper rack can come out if you pull the little gray thingeys on the front of the upper rails.)
Remove the lower spray arm -- just pull it straight up. Remove nine silver screws from the sump area that holds the filter down. Pull the filter up and out. Rinse the filter as best you can.
While the filter removed, with a flash light inspect all over the sump area - looking for stuff that should not be there and clean it out. Watch out for broken glass!
Replace the filter, screws and the spray arm. Fire it up and check your results!
Good Luck!
