Hi,

If the clean light is the one flashing then your dishwasher could have a heater circuit problem (depending on the age) or this could simply just be water colder than it is used to getting.
Repeatedly press the Heated Dry and Hi-Temp Wash(scrub) which ever yours has until all the LED lights come on, press cancel twice and try the dishwasher again making sure to run the water at the kitchen sink till it is hot before starting the dishwasher, if this trips and locks you have a problem with the heating element, or temp sensor.

Press the heated dry button followed by the normal cycle button, and then repeat once. You should see all of the lights come on for a second or two, and then the dishwasher will work again.

If you haven't already, take a look under the kick plate in front to see if there is a schematic tucked in there somewhere.

So, if the above combination does not work here are two more that have worked for me.

HiTemp Wash + Air Dry + HiTemp Wash + Air Dry in less than 5 sec
or
Hi Temp Scrub/Scour + Air Dry + Hi Temp Scrub/Scour + Air Dry in less than 5 sec

Let me know, if you need further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

SOURCE: Green "Clean" light keeps flashing, dishwasher won't start

This may help in your situation. 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.

SOURCE: The clean light in my Kenmore dishwasher keeps

It has to do with the water temperture, either the water entering the dishwasher is too cold and the heater can't get it up to temp, or the heater unit has problems... Push the Air dry ,then the sani wash buttons a few times and all the lights will light, it resets the computer .

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore Elite

I tried everything, including cutting the power off, adjusting the doors, and on and on. The button pushing sequence sent my dishwasher into a diagnostic cycle. I let it run and after about 2 minutes we're back up and running! You would think the button pushing sequence would have been put into the owners manual, but I guess they want to be able to charge you a few hundred bucks to push a couple of buttons. Thanks to the responders and fixya.com!!!

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.
