    Hi my name is Diego and I am the facilties manager of a youth shelter. It seems that one of the youth left a plastic spoon in the dishwasher and then it melted. I had the same problem 6 months ago with the clean light flashing. I called sears to come out and thought they would replace the element, but instead they punched a few buttons and it worked fine. they then charged me 125$. Is it possible to know what buttons that he pushed?

My delay light has come on and I cant get the dishwasher to start. The delay light goes out after the time has expired but if you try to move it to the start position the light comes on again


The Control is programmed to stop running and not allow any further cycles if it detects a water heating problem (no temperature increase detected in heated Main Wash on 3 consecutive cycles). The Control will flash the Clean LED 7 times repeatedly and will disable the Start/Resume key until cleared.

To clear and reset the control press in this order: Heated Dry ? Normal ? Heated Dry ? Normal and then let the unit run for 1-2 minutes and then press Cancel and let the dishwasher complete the cancel cycle. The dishwasher should operate normally again unless it does not detect a temperature rise in the main wash cycle.

It could be caused by a Heater circuit problem if it continues to stop and flash the Clean light.

It could have one of the following failures:
Open in heater.
Open connection or component in heater circuit.
Faulty heater drive circuit on control.
It can also be caused by the wash pump not pumping water past the heater efficiently.

Whirlpool Quiet Partner II clean light blinks 7 times


The clean light flashing 7 times is an error code indicating an issue with the wash temperature. If the control does not detect a 4*F temperature rise in the main wash cycle, it will display the fault as the clean light flashing 7 times. There are several things that could cause the water not to heat, including the water being too hot coming in, an open door switch, or a faulty component in the heater circuit. The most common cause is the door switch not closing properly. This can be due to a loading issue or a latch issue. If upon visual inspection of the heating element no obvious defects are found, I would recommend resetting the control and running another cycle, paying close attention to door closure. If the light begins flashing again, you likely have a component failure. The heat circuit consists of several components including the element, control, door switch and tub thermostat(s). Reset the control by pressing teh following buttons within 5 seconds.

I have a Hotpoint SDW 60 problem! The dishwasher starts and goes through pre-wash but stops with just the 'Delicate' light flashing. Does anyone know what the problem may be?


If the original light flashing that means it indicate a fault in the heating circuit. Heater, wiring, thermistor / pcb. (Main control board).

The new flashing light, PreWash (this is the only one on my list for a fault code indication). indicates a fault with the thermistor.

You would need to check by taking the door apart that the thermistor hasn't come off it's mount by the dispenser.

You would then need access to and be able to use a multimeter to test the heater and wiring to ensure they are closed circuit.

MDB6160AWW - flashing lights after hitting the normal cycle: Clean and Heated Dry buttons flash. What is this code telling me? Keith


Hi

These blinking lights indicates an issue with heater circuit, door switch or wash pump. Please reset the power to the dishwasher and after, 5 minutes check if you are still getting the same error. If yes, then it is a water heating fault. To resolve this error try pressing this reset sequence-- Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal or High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry or Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry, Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry. Now let the unit run for 2-3 minutes and then you press the Cancel/Drain button and allow it to completely drain and reset. If this doesn't work then it's an issue with the wash pump not pumping the water past the heater efficiently or due to lack of water to heat. Please make sure that heater is not open circuited and is heating the water efficiently. You'll have to check the heater using a multimeter; the meter should read between 3000 to 3300 ohms (Use multimeter on Rx1 ohm setting). If heater is fine then make sure water pressure is optimum and fill valve is working fine. Hope this helps... Please post back for further assistance.

That signals an issue with a faulty heater &/or heater drive circuit.
(that info comes from their troubleshooting guide)
