Clean light keeps blinking and I cannot get dishwasher to start cleaning dishes. It seems to be hung up.


If it blinks 7 times, then pauses, then 7 times....over & over, then the computer control has failed to see an increase in water temperature during the last cycle. That means the heater could be out, the temperature sensor is out, the heater drive circuit is bad, there is not enough water or the water is not circulating properly. The newer models have different blink sequences that mean other things. On most models you can press hi temp wash>heated dry>hi temp wash>heated dry in quick succession to enter a service mode. All the lights will come on, then after the control clicks a few times, just press cancel & the control will be reset & you can run another cycle. If it does the same thing again at the end of the next cycle, it will need repairs.

Kenmore ultra wash dishwasher gets stuck at 42 on the control panel


Be aware that all (well, almost all) dishwashers have a "thermal hold" period in their cycles. This is the point in the main wash cycle where the heater is turned on to heat the water to the optimum wash temperature (about 150 to 160 deg F), and during this time, the timer will stop advancing. Once the water has reached the desired temperature, the cycle will continue. IF it does not, then you have a water heating problem. This could be caused by a bad heating element, a bad controller, a bad thermostat or temperature sensor.

What is meaning of E 11 code at the end of the cycle


What model number?

E11 frequently means that the dishwasher is running without heating. If your hot water is hot, and you don't sanitize your dishes and they are coming clean, you can safely ignore it. It could be a loose wire or the heating element is dead. It is part of an assembly and usually not separately replaceable. If the heat is not running, the error likely comes after a period of time during which the water does not heat. It could also be a faulty sensor, usually part of the same assembly.


If you dishwasher works and is old and still cleaning, it is probably not worth fixing this.

My dishwasher is leaving a residue on my dishes and not fully cleaning them. When I use the HEAT dry or SANI Heat, I smell a burning smell and not sure why this is. Solution?


possible unit is not getting enough water into unit...this could be from a bad water inlet valve if the water is not high enough in unit the heater will get to hot as it is designed to heat the water to sanitize. try a new water valve and see if this cures your problem

Dishwasher fills with water, then empties, fills then empties, and repeats this cycle a few times - then decides to work. then part way through cycle - it repeats this frustrating cycle, making the whole...


Hi, Your dishwasher may pre-heat the water. If so, and if the water entering the dishwasher is cool, the heater may take up to half an hour to heat the water. To avoid the wait, increase the incoming water temperature before turning on the dishwasher. Do that by running the kitchen sink faucet until the water runs hot. Or increase the temperature of the hot water to the entire house at the hot water heater.
Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it.

The dishwaser takes a very long time to run thruogh is cycles.


on many models, the timer will not move if the water is not up to temp. be sure that you run hot water in the sink until it gets hot before you start the dishwasher.
are your dishes coming out clean and hot? if not, your heating element may be faulty. this is used for drying, but also to maintain water temp. during the cycle. a bad heating element will certainly make the cycle take forever, if it ever gets done. good luck

How do i use it, do i turn water on, when it starts on normal mode it seems to shut off, do i leave the water on the whole time.. im lost


A built-in dishwasher should be connected to a hot water line under your sink, usually on the same valve as the sink. It is normal to have the water turned on all the time as there is an electrically operated valve that will supply water into the dishwasher as needed during the wash and rinse cycles. If your model includes a "sani-heat" or other setting that ensures the water is hot enough to do a good job, then you may observe a period of no audible activity during which the water that was drawn into the dishwasher is heated with the electric element below the basket or drawer where your dishes are arranged. With the water turned on, run a full cycle using the pot-clean or heavy duty wash as the starting point. If you have only push-buttons then choose the one that sounds like a full cycle. Anytime during the operation you may open the door latch to see what is going on, then close it again to resume the cycle. If you are not getting water into the dishwasher then you should check the valve and the tubing... you can remove the tubing and try filling a small bucket if you are handy with plumbing and not prone to damaging small compression nuts on plastic or brass valve ports. If water is flowing check for power at the outlet -- where I live they all use a 3-prong plug under the sink to a GFCI outlet. If your unit is hardwired then check power carefully or with the help of a qualified repairman.

Not cleaning low pressure smells hot looks like


Sounds like the dishwasher is not getting enough water during it's fill cycle due to low water pressure on supply line or the dishwasher pump is not working correctly. Could be obstructed with food matter, etc.Hope this helps

Cycle stops, won't drain


This is either a bad timer or a bad heat sensor. On most cycles that call for the water to be heated it will pause the timer and continue washing/heating until the sensor is satisfied the water is hot enough. Try selecting a quick, delicate, or china cycle without heated rinse or dry. If it works this way the timer is fine but the sensor is bad. Sometimes cold water to the machine will cause this problem because the machine is not capable of totallly heating cold water. It is only designed to boost the temp. Make sure you run hot water at the sink before you start the machine.
