Watch the light closely. If it blinks 7 times then pauses, this indicates a heater or door latch issue.

  • Press the following buttons in sequence: Hi Temp Wash, Heated Dry, Hi Temp Wash, Heated Dry, Hi Temp Wash.If this doesn't work, check the tech sheet. (should be stuck to inside of the bottom toe panel)
  • All lights should illuminate then a diagnostic sequence will start.
  • Listen carefully, as soon as you hear the water begin to fill, open the door and feel the heater. if cold, check the heater for continuity (should be around 10ohms)
  • Also, bend the door catch on the dishwasher tub downward, this will engage the door latch better. Don't bend too far as it will hit the door while closing.

Glasses are cloudy and cutlery and dishes are not clean. using cascade with dawn powder. dishwasher is brand new, installed one week ago


Sorry to hear your having problems with your new dishwasher. Please review your owners manual for great tips for the best results on cleaning your dishes. Here are a few steps to take to get your dishwasher working:
  1. Run you sink water for 3 min on hot before you start your dishwasher. This allows warm water to enter the dishwasher and helps aid in sanitizing and cycle time. Remember water entering must be at 125 degrees.
  2. If your using power detergent be sure to use rise aid. All new dishwashers require this additive for best results.
  3. If you have hard water your going to need a dishwasher cleaner and use it once a month. I recommend dishwasher magic. Kills 99.9% bacteria and leave a great scent. I use it myself.

Not working


Press the High Temp Wash then the High Temp Rinse, 3 times in a row, quickly. This resets the microprocessor. The unit will go through a short set of tests and then be ready to use again.
