Hi,

If the clean light is the one flashing then your dishwasher could have a heater circuit problem (depending on the age) or this could simply just be water colder than it is used to getting.

Repeatedly press the Heated Dry and Hi-Temp Wash(scrub) which ever yours has until all the LED lights come on, press cancel twice and try the dishwasher again making sure to run the water at the kitchen sink till it is hot before starting the dishwasher, if this trips and locks you have a problem with the heating element, or temp sensor.

Press the heated dry button followed by the normal cycle button, and then repeat once. You should see all of the lights come on for a second or two, and then the dishwasher will work again.
If you haven't already, take a look under the kick plate in front to see if there is a schematic tucked in there somewhere. Whirlpool has put their diagnostics for specific models on these.
I don't have the specific repair manual for you model.
So, if the above combination does not work here are two more that have worked for me.

HiTemp Wash + Air Dry + HiTemp Wash + Air Dry in less than 5 sec
or
Hi Temp Scrub/Scour + Air Dry + Hi Temp Scrub/Scour + Air Dry in less than 5 sec


Let me know, if you need further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Why is my kenmore dishwasher blinking clean?


It's trying to tell you that there is something wrong with your dishwasher. Watch that blinking light.... Does it blink 7 times, pauses, and repeats? Or does it blink 3 times (or some other number). The most common problem is 7 blinks which means "water not heating error". This could be caused by a bad heating element, a bad thermal cutoff, a bad controller. Usually there is a tech-data sheet located on the other side of the toe-kick panel which will explain the meaning of the varius blink codes, but you might still need to call a technician to fix the problem. Don't forget to put that tech data sheet back so he can find it and use it to fix your dishwasher!

Normal light flashes, unable to operate


Hello.

The reason the ligh keeps blinking is because it is displaying a error code. How many times in a row does the light flash before it pauses and blinks again?? the number of times it blinks in a row is the number of the error code its displaying...example if it blinks 7 times in a row before a brief pause its is displaying the E7 code and so on.

This tip i wrote will tell ya how to reset the control board but be sure to reply with the amount of times it blinks and i will let ya know whats its telling ya.

Here is that tip to reset it http://www1.fixya.com/support/r10357661-get_whirlpool_dishwasher_start_when
