    In most cases, you will need to replace the interface board. It all depends on which light is blinking and what button that light is blinking on or under. Please let me know what light is blinking.

    Interface board - 8270168

    This board is mounted inside the control panel...

    OK, have you replaced the microcomputer- #8528874

    Usually, when all lights flash in unison, this will indicate that the microcomputer has failed. If only the rinse or cancel light is flashing, this will indicate that one or more of the interface buttons are damaged.

Hi there,

Well first of all you can try try to clear it by putting the machine into diagnostics mode. You can try hitting the combination one after another - high temp wash - heated dry - high temp wash -heated dry then close the door and hit cancel. wait for the pump to stop and then try to set a cycle. If you are not able to unlock the dishwasher door then please follow the below steps -
1. Press and hold down this "Energy Saver/Dry" button for at least 5 seconds. Make sure that you do not release the button until at least 5 seconds have passed, otherwise the lock will not become disabled.
2. Check to make sure that the child lock indicator light has turned off.
Note. If none of the above step works then there is some problem with the control board, may be need to replace the board.
Please post comments for further help or information........

Good Luck!!

Thanks

My Hotpoint DWF40 Dishwasher flashes wash and rinse lights. Water fills and drains fine. How do i fix it?


test this and fix it. God bless you

Heating Element

If lights are flashing on the control panel, the heating element might have burned out. The heating element heats the water up to operating temperature. After a set amount of time if the temperature isn't reached a light on the control panel might start flashing. The heating element can be checked for continuity with an Ohm meter.

Check Fault Codes

If the display lights are flashing and there is an error code in the display window, check the wiring diagram and tech sheet in the dishwasher that will provide information on the fault.


Drain Pump

If lights are flashing on the control panel, the drain pump might not be working properly. For two-wire drain pump motors check them for continuity using an Ohm meter. If it's defective You'll need to replace it. Drain pumps are not repairable.

Touchpad and Control Panel

If the lights are flashing on the display the entire touchpad and control panel assembly might be defective. If the display works but the dishwasher functions are all out of synch, or some of the buttons don't respond properly the entire touchpad and control panel might need to be replaced.

Touchpad

If the display lights are flickering for no reason, the touchpad might need to be replaced. Sometimes when the touchpad is defective the display lights are flashing randomly.

Cancel Light Flashing on Kitchen Aid Dishwasher


I found this post elsewhere. It seems to have worked for me: Our KitchenAid KUDP series dishwasher went into a mode where it would not start and would only respond to the cancel/drain button. The clean light would flash 7 times in a row, stop, and then repeat. I read that the 7 flashes indicates an error code and that the dishwasher has detected a problem in the heater element circuit. I tried to reset the error mode by turning off power for 15 minutes, however, that did not work.
We called for a repair. The service person found that the dishwasher was completely fine except that it had gone into an error mode. The technician reset the error mode and charge us $115.00.

The reset sequence used was reported to be the following:
1) Crack the door open.
2) Within 3 seconds press the following sequence - Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry, Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry
3) Close and latch the door
4) Press the cancel button (the circle with the triangle in it)

We were told the dishwasher expects to see the dish water temperature rise in a certain way. If the water does not heat in this way, the dishwasher becomes confused and thinks the heater element has failed. In deed, this happened just following and extended power failure and our hot water tank was cool. I am curious if this code will work for anybody else with the same problem and save a service call and 115 bucks. Overall, this seems to be a serious logic flaw in the design.

When I turn my blender on, it runs for only a few seconds, then stops and all the lights on the panel flash on and off.


More often than not it will need the motor to be replaced, only Kitchen Aid parts will do, motors are usually unique to brands and models. Sometimes it can be the control/button panel but normally the motor.

How do I reset kitchen aid dishwasher with the clean constantly flashing? dishwasher won't start.


Hello, push the following buttons on your control panel.......Heated dry then High temp wash, heated dry then high temp wash, heated dry then high temp wash 3 times within 5 sec you will see the control panel all light up then you should be good to go. The reason it has failed is it has exceeded alloted time to heat the water to temp selected . The best thing to do from now on is to run the water at sink until hot then start the dishwasher more so in winter than summer.

Cancel Light Flashing on Kitchen Aid Dishwasher


I ran into this same problem. Cutting the power didnt reset it.

After power reset, mine had the normal led blinking. If I pressed cancel, then the cancel and china button leds would start blinking too.

I pulled out the trouble shooting guide (from behind the baseboard kick panel under the dishwasher door). It that if the dishwasher wont run and button LEDs are blinking there is a short circuit in the keypad. It gave a keypad diagnostic sequence which I followed. (disconnect keypad and try to initiate the diagnostic cycle without the keypad by disconecting the yellow leads to OWI sensor twice in less than 6 seconds.

I could hear the diagnostic cycle start, so the problem is a bad keypad. Will order a new one tomorrow and let you know if it works.

Kitchen Aid Dishwasher--model #KUDS01DJ


On mine the "normal" light was the one that was flashing; after a cycling of the breaker switch in the electrical main panel and closing the washer door, it went to a 2 minute rinse before shutdown.
