Most likely you have answered your question already... the drain pump is either obstructed or has failed... these units these days have plastic impellers inside and often go bad causing the drain motor to go bad... if the unit does not drain it will not allow the unit to run... is there water in the dishwasher? if it is empty of water then it sounds like you have a bad control or what is called a pcb board on unit

Clean light is flashing 7 times, stops and flashes again. Can't make it started anymore.


my whirlpool is doing the same thing. I'm trying to find a wiring diagram with not much luck. A work around I use is to turn the breaker on the fuse box off for 5 seconds then back on. The dishwasher then works for one cycle.

GE dishwasher with tactile board. Worked fine until special fingers caused issue? Now only the CANCEL and timer light-up when CANCEL pressed. Pump runs to drain for 2 minutes. Stops. NOTHING. Dont see...


This should help: PDW8000 series: press the resetbutton once. This will cancel the washing cycle and pump the water out of themachine. PDW9000 series: open the door aninch and wait for the machine to stop. Touch the reset button to cancel thewashing cycle and reboot the panel.
According to the GE Owner's Manual for the PDW9000 series only: If the"start/reset" light is flashing, close the door until the water pumpsout (this takes approximately 2 minutes) and the light stops flashing. When thelight stops flashing, the dishwasher can be reprogrammed and restarted. If the machine is unresponsive, killthe power to the machine by turning it off on the wall switch (if applicable)or turning the circuit breaker off. Leave the power off for 30 seconds,then turn the power back on. If thatdoes not work here is the repair info: Get into the service mode by pressingkeypads #8 and #4 for 3 seconds. Then reset from service mode. LINK to SCHEMATIC

Green start button won't stop blinking


START/RESET status indicator light flashing


You have pressed the indicator light flashing START/RESET pad while the START/RESET dishwasher is running. This will cancel the cycle. The light will stop flashing after the dishwasher drains (about 90 seconds).


Press the pad once to start the dishwasher. Press the pad a second time when the dishwasher is running only if you wish to cancel the cycle.


Power to the dishwasher was turned off while a cycle was running and power has just been restored to the dishwasher. The blinking lights indicate that the dishwasher is draining the potential water inside.


The light will stop flashing after the dishwasher drains. A new cycle will start automatically.


Good luck

I have a Kenmore Elite Dishwasher Model 665.172824000. We think it stopped part way throught the dry cycle. The green "Clean" light has been flashing since in 7 flash cycles non stop. I tried pushing...


So sorry but the partsdirect site for sears locked down my computer. Check where the drain hose connects to your pump and see if there is a small device the hose connects to that has 2 wires going to it. If it does unplug the wires, turn power off, wait 1 minute and turn power back on and see if it works with this disconnected. If it does you will need to replace this. It is like a sensor that says there is too much debris. Stupid part that was totally unnecessary in the first place. Sorry about the inconvenience.

HI TEMP - DRY - HI TEMP - DRY...then close door and press cancel...then wait for the pump to shut down. you should be able to run a cycle after this...If this fails to fix the problem give me the make and model # of the dishwasher, this can normally be found just inside the door.

Kenmore Elite Dishwasher clean light ind flashing and won't start


You will have to reset the console. To do this, close the door and press these buttons in sequence...

-high temp wash
-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry

...all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle finish (1-2 minutes).
You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.

Clean light flashes constanly. Won't clear out to start new cycle


If the clean light flashes 7 times, pauses, then repeats...

When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it will stop working and lock the functions (clean light flashes 7 times, 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

...all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle finish (1-2 minutes).
You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.

If the issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit (ie. element, thermostat or wiring). It rarely happens but it could also be the door switch not engaging properly when the door is closed (slightly bend the door latch down making sure it doesn't hit the door when you close it).

Kenmore Quiet Guard 2 keypad


Sounds like the electronic controls (smart card) are acting up. Try shutting off the power at your fuse box or shut off the circuit breaker for 1 minute them turn the power on again. This fix quite often works on electronic appliances.
