    Want to reset it simply because it's not working, I fail to understand the rational for mocking my request.

    I have no idea what cycle it was in or has been in. No lights flashing or no lights work with any consistency. Sometimes you push a button and something happens sometimes not. The dish washer came with new girl friend. Now that's worth mocking...

    Paper work states part no. 8535451. Also states to press Heated Dry, Normal, Heated Dry, Normal (While In Stand By) to enter Service Diagnostics Cycle. I do not know what Stand By means but all attempts to sequence event produce no joy! I will search for more info when I go over there tomorrow.

    The reset appeared to help.

    Now, the dish washer wash's, then pasues and then starts the washing cycle all over again, repeating unless turned off or canceled. It appears to not sence it is done washing and go into a drying cycle. Makes me wonder if a sensor is nor working or if the control panel is to blame for this.

    Also, if I run the rinse only cycle, after rinsing, the machine stops as it should......HH

  • Hal Haynes Nov 09, 2010

    The RINSE ONLY/AIR DRY button when held for 15-20 seconds, did reset it.

    Now it will wash, pause, then wash again, over and over. If I hit rinse only, it will rinse then shut off as expected. It acts as if it does not sence it has washed.

    Could this be a sensor isssue or still a bad control unit?


    Thanks, HH

Hi

The sequence that you have followed is the correct one to reset it. However, you can also try to reset it by pressing the RINSE ONLY/AIR DRY button and hold it for 15-20 seconds. After this if the issue remains, you'll have to replace the control. Hope this helps... If it does please do not forget to accept the solution or post back for assistance.

    This can be due to a bad component in the control. However, hope you have already checked the drain hose and the drain pump filter for any clogs/foreign particles. If you have then it is the control that needs replacement.

Wondering why you want to reset it.

i am assuming you have the manual which gives you the reset or diagnostics code. If the reset is not working then the control board has packed up.

Please provide the full model no. and the problem you are having for which you want to reset. What cycle was it at last time and which lights were flashing.

My quiet partner 111 whirlpool dishwasher is flashing clean


Hello.
Manufactured by Whirlpool, Kenmore dishwashers have an electronic control panel that must be unlocked in order to set or make changes to your dishwashing cycle. If an error light is blinking on your dishwasher's control panel, the panel must be reset before you can gain access. Blinking lights on your dishwasher control panel may signal a mechanical problem that needs to be repaired. If the lights continue to blink after you've reset the control panel, contact Sears to service your Kenmore dishwasher or consider troubleshooting the appliance yourself.
1Press and hold the "Heated Dry" button on your Kenmore dishwasher for four seconds to unlock the dishwasher control panel.
2 Press the "Heated Dry," "Normal Wash," "Heated Dry" and "Normal Wash" buttons one after the other, in fairly quick succession.
3 Wait for the dishwasher to run a short diagnostic test.
4 Press the "Cancel/Drain" button at the end of the diagnostic test cycle. This should reset the control panel on your Kenmore dishwasher.

Thanks.

Hi. I have a Kenmore Elite Ultra Wash with Quiet


This may or may not help in your situation, but the following link explains how you may be able to clear the blinking clean light problem:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r417123-blinking_clean_light_kenmore_whirlpool

Now...keep in mind all dish washers are not alike and have different panel options. If you do not have the same set up as I have referenced, the tech sheet for your dishwasher will explain. The tech sheet is located behind the lower toe panel under the door and lists the proper sequence of buttons to push for diagnostics and troubleshooting.

NOTE: Sometimes the tech sheet is located behind the inner door panel. You will need to remove the screws securing the inner panel to access it if this is the case. Make sure you turn off the main power breaker before doing so.

Sometimes this can be a momentary glitch in operation. However, if the problem keeps reoccuring the number of flashes is an indication of which circuit is causing your problem. Again, refer to your tech sheet to determine this.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you solve your problem.

Loud Buzzing Sound from Dishwasher


have you ever seen green led "Clean" light flashing? before or about the same time the buzzing sound started? and if so that would indicate that the control senses a fault in the temperature rise during the heating cycle and that the electronic control could be reset by initiating a service diagnostic cycle.(which is what you were trying to do) pls reread your manual there are times during that sequence that some buttons have to be pushed at the same time and within a certain amount of time..possible that your machine also has a bad timer which would give you a buzzing noise..if thats the case I would recommend replacing the cpu or control board..or the machin all together..The Kenmore Ultra Wash Quiet Guard name is sears but whirpool has the contract to produce all "kenmore products.hope that helps.

Smelly dishes from Kenmore Ultra Wash


If you post the model number of your dishwasher plus its approximate age (in years) I can help more.

But the most common cause is a weakening pump motor. On many dishwashers, the wash pump motor is also the drain motor. Replacing that motor / pump assembly will solve the problem. While you are replacing the pump, check the heating element to confirm that it is not shorted out or broken.

For now, add a cap full of bleach to the water _after_ the initial dishwasher fill cycle ends and the wash cycle begins. White vinegar would also work, but this will not fix your problem.

Good Luck!
