Our Kenmore Elite Dishwasher has a blinking green light next to the clean cycle. It won't reset. We changed the motor and this has been going on ever since. Do you know what we need to do to fix it. Thank you

Hello

Blinking green light can be reset by following two buttons in sequence: press HIGH TEMP WASH-HEATED DRY buttons in sequence around 3-4 times so that the control reset itself. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Clean light keeps blinking; dishwaher won't turn on


Hello Brian, welcome to FixYa.
Based on your post I understand your dishwasher is a Kenmore and the clean light is flashing and it won't start, correct ?
If so, this is usually an error code indicating there was a problem in the heating process the last cycle it ran, however if you could provide the complete model number I could speak specifically to whether it applies to your machine and potentially what to do about it.
Thank you for choosing FixYa and I look forward to your reply.
Regards,
Macmarkus :)

The green clean light is flashing. It will not go off even when we press cancel. The wash cycle was not completed. The model # is 665.17283400.


The green clean light means that your dishwasher isn't heating the water. Go to the link below to see how to reset the error code and check for reasons that the error happened.

Flashing green ''clean'' light and will not start a wash cycle.


the computer senced that the heater did not work last cycle. Push your sani clean, energy saver button s back and fourth a few times. It will run a self diag cycle. let it run for a few min. If it happens again your heater may have burned out.

Green light on kenmore dishwasher is flashing


I actually had to change the steps a little and this is what I did:

press heated dry
press normal wash
press heated dry again
press normal wash again
wait a few seconds
all the lights should come on
press cancel (should hear pump)
hit cancel again

Started a cycle and began washing.....Thx

Kenmore elite dishwasher


I had the same problem when I bought it and it just happened again; the problem is solved by ressting the control panel: Hi Temp ---> Heated Dry two or three times. It kind of goes into a testing cycle and the clean blinking light goes off.

Green clean light keeps blinking


HI, Same thing happened to me today and Sears more than willing to charge me 200.00 for a 1 year service agreement. I found the answer on askmehelpdesk.com and the answer is: To reset a Kenmore Ultra Wash elite series dishwasher (stuck on clean) simply push heated/dry then normal wash and do the same thing again. Panel will reset itself and it hopefully will run normally again. Mine did and I am rejoicing! Julie
