This machine was made by Whirlpool and the flashing clean light is a common error code for them.
If the clean light is the one flashing then your dishawasher 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 untill 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
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!!

What this actually signifies is that there is a
problem with the spray arms; they are blocked, needs cleaning.
Then, check on the filters as well, its an uncommon problem, but once cleaned, run the machine on a hottest wash, hope it clears the problem. Check inside for the hose (see if in place or off the top spray bar)to check whether water is going into the spray bars and spray arms work well. ----------
The 5 flashes indicate a spray. Pump fault,
either blocked or motor fault.
Press and hold the start button until
the light goes out.
a program and try the machine again.--------
This should help.keep updated.Thanks.Helpmech,.
