Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If the green/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 accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

    There is no heated dry button. There is a heated scrub button.

    buttons are inside the door so I cannot close hte door before pressing buttons.

    Press and hold quick rinse-air dry-quick rinse-air dry.

  • yokumberry Jul 10, 2010

    Tried pushing rinse/dry buttons as you said. The clean button blinks 7 times, then pauses as in another profile.

    OK, now press Hi Temp, Air Dry, Hi Temp, Air Dry. Then, close the door until it latches, then press the Cancel key. This should reset the panel. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


    Thanks

Maytag dishwasher MDB8959AWS2 blinks 7 times and will not work, what is the code to reset.


Try the instructions listed at this site. If the problem still occurs after the reset it is usually the heater element that might be faulty.

The dishwasher will not Start and the Clean Light keeps blinking


Hi,

This blinking indicates the water did not heat up properly in the heated wash part of the cycle. I have put together some instructions on resetting the control so you can use the machine and some details on why it might have happened. Follow the link and if you have any trouble let me know.

The "clean" button is flashing & none of the other cycles work.


heated dry and high temp wash
toggle till all the lights light up
then hit cancel
you should be able to turn dishwasher back on
you probably have a bad heater
is it flashing 7 times
take kick panel off and look to the rear of the dishwasher
is anything burned
if the clean light keeps blinking replace your heater

"Clean light" keeps blinking; dishwasher won't start new cycle


Check to see how it's loaded. If something is obstructing either of the spray arms it will not start. I had this same problem and checked to see if there was something impeding the arms - I found there was. Reloaded the unit and it's running like a champ now!

Green clean light keeps blinking


HI, Same thing happened to me today and Sears more than willing to charge me 200.00 for a 1 year service agreement. I found the answer on askmehelpdesk.com and the answer is: To reset a Kenmore Ultra Wash elite series dishwasher (stuck on clean) simply push heated/dry then normal wash and do the same thing again. Panel will reset itself and it hopefully will run normally again. Mine did and I am rejoicing! Julie

Dishwasher lights blinking


QuietGuard3: Clean light flashing 7 times? Press Heated Dry, press Normal Wash, then press Heated Dry again and press Normal Wash again (that's 4 button-presses) and that should fix it.
