I found many forum threads on your subject. Most of them suggest running the diagnostics on the heater to check if it's heating or to pull out the heater element and check its resistance.

    If your
    dishwasher has a digital readout and you see an error code, it may
    indicate a problem with the unit. If this happens, look up the error
    code in your owner's manual to find out what the problem is.

My dishwasher seems to be locked up and needs to be reset. the clean led is constantly flashing. i had this trouble in the past, and the serviceman reset the dishwasher by using the touchpad on the front...


Control is programmed to
stop the current cycle and
not allow any further
cycles if it suspects a
faulty heater (no
temperature increase
detected in heated
intervals). Control blinks
the Clean LED 7 times in
repetitive fashion and
disables the Start/Resume
key until cleared.
Heater circuit problem:
■ Open in heater.
■ Open connection or
component in heater
circuit.
■ Faulty heater drive
circuit on control.
Running Diagnostics clears the control and
allows it to operate again. If heating problem
is not corrected though, the control will stop
running again on next cycle. See below.
1. Unplug dishwasher or disconnect power.
2. Check all components and connections in
the water heating circuit or heat dry circuit.
■ Check resistance of heater.
■ Check resistances of all connections and
components between the control and
heater.
■ Check operation of heater and temperature
sensor in Diagnostics cycle.

Stopped runing


If you Whirlpool Gold 24 in. Built-In Dishwasher Dishwasher blinks 7 times and then repeats, indicates a problem in the dishwasher which should be investigated and not just the control 'reset'! That is why the control will not let the dishwasher start once such a condition is detected.
If the dishwasher's electronic control doesn't detect a water temperature increase during the main wash cycle, that symptom can occur. No water temperature increase could be caused by a problem in the heater element, its in-line thermostat, the related wiring or a problem in the electronic control.
It is also possible just the washer not spraying properly (possibly from blockage in the filter or problem in the pump), the dishwasher not filling sufficiently or draining prematurely or even a problem in the door latching mechanism's switch(es) could cause it.

The clean light keeps blinking and won't run new cycle


Whirlpool & Kitchen-Aid
Tall Tub Dishwashers
PROBLEM: STOPPED RUNNING, WILL NOT START AND CLEAN LED BLINKS 7 TIMES, THEN REPEATS (WATER HEATING FAULT)
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 cycle or in 3 consecutive
cycles on the latest software version). 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 condition
must be corrected or the control will stop
running again. See potential causes below.
Check If…
Heater circuit problem:
♦ Open heater.
♦ Wire disconnected, open connection or component
in heater circuit.
♦ Faulty heater drive circuit on control.
Then…
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.
Door switch not making contact consistently:
♦ Misaligned door latch assembly (which can be
aggravated by high door closure force keeping
strike plate from fully seating).
♦ Faulty door switch (high resistance).
♦ Loose or missing installation anchor screws,
causing tank to shift in cut-out.
NOTE: Neutral switch on plastic tub models is only in series with
the heater; other loads are not affected.
1. Unplug dishwasher or disconnect power.
2. Measure resistance of door switch contacts while
checking mechanical operation of latch assembly.
Confirm switches not loose from assembly. Check
strike plate and door closure.
Wash pump not pumping water past the heater efficiently.
• Foreign object in pump
• Excessive foaming
• Clogged pump screen or broken chopper screen
• Loose electrical connection in motor circuit
See Tech Sheet “WASH PUMP WILL NOT PUMP”.
Lack of water to heat. (Unit not filling properly)
• Insufficient water supply pressure
• Fill valve screen blocked or valve not opening fully
• Loose electrical connection on Fill Valve.
• Float switch obstructed or functioning abnormally
See Tech Sheet “WILL NOT FILL OR LOW
WATER”.

Clean light stays on and will not run on our Kenmore 665 dishwasher.


if you have a whirlpool/ kenmore dishwasher and the clean light is flashing 7 times then pauses and then repeats, it is a problem with the heating circuit.
follow this keypad operation: push the high temp wash, air dry, high temp wash, air dry. this will put the unit into a service mode and it will run a short diagnosis cycle. after it gets done, about 5-7 minutes, then it will reset and allow you to use the unit again.
make sure the water is hot enough at your faucet at least 120 degrees, and the door is getting closed tight.
