Doesn't start. "Quick rinse" flashes. Had someone to come look at it and he just pushed a few buttons in sequence order, but it obviously didn't work for long. 2 washes

Looks like he has done a master reset by pushing switches.
Take his help again and note the key sequences!

If problem persists you may have to check the DC power supply
to the control electronics board. Finally if frequent resetting observed,
you have to replace the board with identical part no., and version.

HE3 doesn't respond to any button. Time light keeps flashing time. Pause cancel button does nothing, Cycle doesn't start. The only thing that will change is if you push a different mode ie, heavy,...


Unplug the machine for at least half an hour to eliminate the possibility of an electronic glitch. Then upon plugging in back, close the door then push CONTROL/ON (if present on this model). Select the DRAIN/SPIN cycle then select NO SPIN by pressing the SPIN SPEED button. Push PREWASH OPTION four times within five seconds. If PREWASH OPTION is not present on this model, press EXTRA RINSE four times within five seconds. C:00 will light up on the display. If the Starting procedure fails, push the PAUSE/CANCEL button then repeat the starting procedure.

In order to advance to the next step of the test procedure, push PREWASH OPTION button two times. If PREWASH OPTION is not present on this model, press EXTRA RINSE two times. The test program goes from C:00 to C:08 and should flash an error code when a problem is present. Post the code back for further troubleshooting, including the exact model number of the machine.

I am trying to start a cyle and everytime i push the cycle button it does not light up and the quick rinse button comes on and flashes nothing works at all if i push heavy wash it comes on and nothing...


You haven't told me how many times the light flashes, but I will take a guess that this is an error code associated with the water entering the machine being too cool. I believe the machine expects the water to enter at 110 degrees F (43 Degrees C).

To clear the error, press "Heated Dry" then release, then press "Normal Wash" then release and repeat this sequence until all the lights on the machine go solid green. Once this happens, hit ""Cancel" and the machine will reset.

The fix for the root of the problem is to increase the temperature of the incoming water in future (Turn up your water heater temperature a little)

Blinking lights on Front Panel


I've finally tracked down the manual and it the fault code is as follows

"Indicates a fault in the heater or in the thermistor"

You can go into a fault tracing mode by pushing the "Rinse Hold" button five times within 15 seconds. The first, third, fifth and seventh lights will flash when in this mode and you can test the following parts by pressing the corresponding button. I'm going to try the heater test below and assume that if that works the fault must be with the Thermistor. The other tests could be useful for other faults.

User manual found here

Rinse Hold - tests detergent solenoid, detergent flaps open after about 60sec

Pots & Pans - tests Rinse Aid Solenoid, rinse aid will flow down door

Normal Wash - tests water inlet valve, water can be heard entering

Light Wash - tests ventilator solenoid, there will be a click followed by a rattling noise

Quick Wash - tests the heater, the element heats up, WARNING don’t touch element HOT

Temp - tests circulation pump, the pump starts

Dry - test outlet pump, the pump starts

Manual says to push 55 and 65 degree button to exit, I have no idea where those are so will probably just switch off at wall to reset.

Hope this helps someone. I rang ASKO and they said they didn’t know what the fault code meant so either they can’t read or their service sucks, probably a bit of both!

Intermittent problem, unable to select normal wash cycle/start


restart curcuit board sequence

push start hold down air dry and start until lights blink and machine starts then it should work normal

most dishwashers have an instruction booklet behind the botton panel that is nearest the floor you wll have to remove the panel it has a couple of screws. the booklet should be there unless installer took it.
If you omly replaced the front panel board then you may have to replace the circuit board inside the door. It works like a mother board in a computer. Good luck

Flashing quick rinse light on panel


I had the same problem but I found someone wh said that there is a way to reset the dishwasher. I tried it and it has worked so far.

Here is what I did.
Push the Hi-temp and then push the Sani-rinse. Go back and forth multiple times on these two buttons. I found that after a handfull of pushes that a "1" came up on the display. I continued to keep rotating the two buttons and then a "2" came up on the display and the dishwater started it's "drain" phase. I then hit cancel to clear and then I selected the cycle I wanted. The washer started up just as normal at this point.
Good luck!

Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher - Blinking Quick Rinse Light


I had the same flashing light problem first the normal wash flashing light then the others. I tried shuting of the breakers but nothing. I tried resetting the panel by pushing normal wash and heated dry simultaneously and nothing. So I took the six screws holding the front panel out and unplugged the ribbon type wires and plug and unplugged it several times to help make a better contact and I was able to get it to work right away. This may not work for all but I worked for me. It is very easy to do and it's worth a try if you're having the same problem. It took me less then 10 minutes.
