SOURCE: what does the error code on a kenmore dishwasher

Hi

To resolve this problem you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...

* high temp wash
* heated dry
* high temp wash
* heated dry

all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle finish (1-2 minutes).
You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.

If the issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit (ie. element, thermostat or wiring). It rarely happens but it could also be the door switch not engaging properly when the door is closed (slightly bend the door latch down making sure it doesn't hit the door when you close it)


Let us know if you want to know something more else please accept the suggestion.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.com

The blinking "clean light" is a common problem with some of the Kenmore and Whirlpool models dishwashers. The problem is usually attributed to water supply temperatures being too low when filling. Apparently, there are some issues with the temperature sensing circuits in some dishwashers that causes an error code to be generated if a certain water temperature is not achieved in a specified time interval (this time may differ between models). There is a reset sequence that you can try to clear the fault. Push the NORMAL WASH then HEATED DRY buttons in that sequence two to three times. The unit will enter diagnostics mode, but can be stopped by pressing the CANCEL button. This will clear any existing faults and should return the dishwasher to normal operation.

To keep the fault from returning, it is recommended that you run your hot water faucet in the kitchen until it runs hot BEFORE you start the dishwasher. This will heat the water in the supply line for the dishwasher (most dishwashers are fed from the kitchen sink supply line). The theory is that if you fill the dishwasher with hot water from the start of the wash cycle instead of the cool water that is normally in the lines (especially if you have a hot water tank located far away from the kitchen), this should satisfy the requirements of the temperature sensing circuits. If the fault reappears, there should be a tech sheet located inside the lower panel under the door that explains what the fault is. The flashing light will be a series of flashes, followed by a pause. If you indeed have a component problem, it will depend on the number of flashing lights in the sequence. Refer to the tech sheet to determine WHAT component is affected and how to troubleshoot.

Kenmore dishwasher won't restart, green light flashes 7 times


Unless you have already tried the fix on this site, please see if you can reset your dishwasher. It appears to be linked to dishwasher not being able to heat water to correct wash temperature.

That signals an issue with a faulty heater &/or heater drive circuit.
(that info comes from their troubleshooting guide)
I ran into it this weekend and discovered that the heater coil in the bottom of the washer was broken.

KENMORE ELITE DISHWASHER - MULTI-LIGHTS FLASHING


Look at your manual, usually available on net for reading or downloading. Blink lights are often used to code out a problem with various combinations and repetition rates to indicate trouble code number for look-up in manual.

My kenmore elite dishwasher will not start.


Thanks to another post, i found how to clear this code, by alternating between the High temp dry and air dry buttons the dishwasher went into diagonostics, then cleared. I found then that the washer would fill but not wash then it would drain. I found the motor was almost seized, I am replacing. The 7 flashes must be a code for the motor going on overload.
