Press and hold heated/dry button on your dishwasher for about 10 seconds at the maximum. It will unlock your dishwasher.

If lock light is lit the control panel will not program . hold the lock pad for 3 to 5 sec and it should unlock then program the board to do a cycle / it should work . mm

    remove the bottom panel down by your toes . on the back side of the toe panel should be a tech sheet . and it will tell you what the 3 light blink code is . the door does not have a latch that must lock but it may have over heated or stoped in cycle . if you havent try shutting the power off at the breakers for 5 min then retry . and you may have a bad prossser . . i didn;t get your model # this would help but f tech sheet is there if will tell us more about the problem .. mm

How do i get my kenmore dishwasher to change from light wash to any other cycle, its kenmore ultra 13449k900 model, runs fine on light duty


Well, if you can't change the cycle by pressing another cycle button, yet you CAN press Start or Cancel and it responds, then you probably have a bad control console. If nothing responds, then you may just have the control-lock (or child-lock) feature turned on.

Dishwasher quits running and clean lite keeps flashing.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If the clean light flashes, pauses, and then repeats. When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (clean light flashes, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.

To resolve this 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


Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
