It indicates a water temp problem. If water temp doesn't rise at a certain rate, by the heater, it goes into this error. Probably a problem with heater or wires to it.

SOURCE: Red blinking light over normal wash

I had the same problem... the lock on light was blinking continuously. The solution required disassembling the door to get to the control panel electronic board. You'll notice a flat transparent cable coming out of one end, twisting under the board and going into the door panel. In the middle of the door, there's a number of wires taped together that curled over the flat cable. Look for any black tape residue on the flat cable, which seemed to be causing a short circuit and confusing the electronics. After carefully removing the tape residue from the flat cable, the problem went away.
Hope this helps :)

QuietGuard3: Clean light flashing 7 times? Press Heated Dry, press Normal Wash, then press Heated Dry again and press Normal Wash again (that's 4 button-presses) and that should fix it.

SOURCE: Maytag Dishwasher model # MDB5130AWW

I had a similar issue with my MDB5130AWW. The Wash was interupted and wouldn't come back on. Not knowing where to start I read some other solutions on this site and started by opening the bottom cover. Thats where I found a 4 page diagnostic / Electrical Schematic. Start with the Sales Demo mode of pressing the Rinse button 5 times within 5 seconds. I had to do it twice before the washer came "alive". I was estatic after reading about the $100 mainboard cost and maybe more for other parts. The document has other test and what different keypads mean when flashing. Thankfully I didn't have to go that far.

I can't get the control panel to reset. The wash cycle light comes on but it just beeps and the dishwasher won't start. I press the start button and it stops beeping for a minute but it still...


II might need the actual model number. However, you can go to page 9 on this manual and check if the flashing options can fix the problem. I am assuming you have already tried to turn the power off and back on.

The ohter thing to try is the reset sequence. Within 6-7 secs press High Temp/ Heat Dry/ High Temp/ Heat Dry/ High Temp/ Heat Dry. All lights should light up, press Start button to exit.

Blinking "Normal" light on a Maytag model


Hi


Open the door. Within 3 seconds press the following sequence --Try pressing normal wash, heated dry, normal wash, heated dry, normal wash, heated dry three times within 6 seconds and then press cancel to reset the dishwasher. If that doesn't help then try pressing Saini Rinse, Heated Dry, Saini Rinse, Heated Dry, Saini Rinse, Heated Dry or Saini Rinse, Air Dry, Saini Rinse, Air Dry, Saini Rinse, Air Dry 3 times in 6 seconds and then the Cancel Button. Close the door and press Cancel.
Blinking lights would stop and should be able to use your dishwasher normally. If the light is still blinking try and reset the power to the dishwasher and try again. If still the light is blinking then check for the connections on the keypad, it may be due to moisture or shorted connections on keypad.



Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

I have a GE QuietPower3 dishwasher... the normal wash, heated dry, hot wash and hot start buttons are all flashing... can you tell me what is going on please?


try this, I was researching and found that this solution worked. While all the lights are blinking, close the dishwasher door and let the machine run through the cycles. This actually happens pretty fast. Then it will stop and quiet down and all the blinking lights will shut off. Then just press the buttons you want and hit start and the machine will start. The time it takes for the blinking light to shut off is about 1 to 2 minutes. It worked for me.

Blinking Green Light


Here's what I could find on the your error code:

A blinking clean light that flashes 7 times and cannot be reset, occurs when the electronic control does not detect a water temperature increase during the main wash. This could be an indication of a failed heating element, in line thermostat, electronic control board and/or wiring. This problem can also occur if the main wash pump becomes clogged and it not spraying sufficiently. I hope this helps you.

PS A faulty door latch can also cause this error code.

Clean light keeps blinking and I can't start a new cycle


Puppa, clear the fault by pressing the keys in this order: high temp scrb--air dry--high temp scrub--air dry. Or, depending on your model..Sani rinse--air dry--sani rinse--air dry. The dishwasher will enter the service mode. Let it do it's thing or advance it through it by pressing the start key. The fault came from the board not sensing a rise in the water temp. Make sure to run the hot water before starting the dishwasher. The heating element runs through the nuetral side of the door switch so make sure the d/w is level and the door switches are all making. The element itself could be at fault. Catriver...post back
