Clean light blinking


If the clean light blinks four times and then pauses and then blinks four times again and repeats, the problem is your pump motor. If there is water under the DW the pump clamp has probably failed and sprayed water onto and inside the motor. Call a certified Kitchen Aid repair service.

Green light on control panel constenly blinks


This condition can also apply to a dishwasher that has had the electronic control replaced.
A heater fault detection program has been added to the
electronic control to check for temperature rise and shut
down the dishwasher if a temperature rise is not detected.
The cycles have been modified to add 8 minutes 45
seconds of fixed heat at the beginning of the main wash.
If the temperature rise is less than the criteria, then
the unit will drain and blink the clean light 7 times. The
detection will be ignored if the temperature is out of its
normal range, 64° - 160° F, or the door is opened during
the fixed heat.
Once a heater fault is detected and the condition resolved
the electronic control must be reset by initiating a service
diagnostic cycle.

Blinking Clean light in Whirpool dishwasher


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). Control blinks the Clean LED 7 times repeatedly and disables the Start/Resume key until cleared. Running Diagnostics clears the control and allows it to operate again. The water heating problem must be fixed or the control will stop running again. See potential causes below. Heater circuit problem: ■ Open in heater. ■ Open connection or component in heater circuit. ■ Faulty heater drive circuit on control. 1. Check operation of heater in Diagnostics cycle. 2. Unplug dishwasher or disconnect power. 3. Check resistance of heater and all components and connections in the water heating circuit or heat dry circuit.

Kenmore dishwasher Troubleshooting


Watch the light closely. If it blinks 7 times then pauses, this indicates a heater or door latch issue.
  • Press the following buttons in sequence: Hi Temp Wash, Heated Dry, Hi Temp Wash, Heated Dry, Hi Temp Wash.If this doesn't work, check the tech sheet. (should be stuck to inside of the bottom toe panel)
  • All lights should illuminate then a diagnostic sequence will start.
  • Listen carefully, as soon as you hear the water begin to fill, open the door and feel the heater. if cold, check the heater for continuity (should be around 10ohms)
  • Also, bend the door catch on the dishwasher tub downward, this will engage the door latch better. Don't bend too far as it will hit the door while closing.

Whirlpool GU2548 green light flashing, nothing working


I have had the same problem with my the same dishwasher. The manual says that "the dishwasher has malfunctioned. Call service to check heater element". I called service and they are saying that replacing the heater element and possibly the electronic panel may be required. Total cost (part + labor) = $350-400!! I am very very upset with Whirlpool right now.
