Hello & Welcome to FixYa
When the lights are all staying on then the problem is with the electronic control board also known as the main power board that is bad and needs replacement. Before replacing you can also try to reset the control by pressing the RINSE ONLY/AIR DRY button and hold it for 15seconds, if reset wont work then replacing the control and checking the door latch is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Whirlpool adp 6515ix dishwasher start button is flashing in 4 time cycles-what does this tell me please. None of the manuals indicate what the flashing could be signalling.


Error CodeConditionCheck/RepairShop PartsClean light blinks 7 timesHeater circuit failure. Control didn't detect the expected rise in water temperature.Check the heating element and related components (wiring and control board) in that circuit.
Heating element, Electronic control board, Thermistor, Circuit wiring
Console light blinks rapidlyThe control detects a stuck button on the control panel.A failed control panel or a malfunctioning electronic control board can cause this code. Check the buttons on the control panel using a volt/ohm meter. In most cases, the control panel must be replaced. If that doesn't solve the problem, the electronic control board might be at fault.
Control panel, Electronic control board
Start/Resume light blinks slowlyIf the dishwasher door is opened or power is interrupted during the cycle, the dishwasher won't start again until the door is detected as closed and the Start/Resume button is pressed.Check the door latch and switch assembly. A failure in the Start/Resume button also can cause this problem.
Door switch assembly, Control panel, Electronic control board
Clean light stays onThe dishwasher won't start a new cycle unless it detects that the door opened after the previous cycle.Turn off power to the dishwasher by shutting off the breaker and restarting. If that does not work, the door switch assembly is stuck and must be replaced.
Door switch assembly
Control lock LED is on but not accepting key pressesAccidentally turned on or control detected keypad problem.Press the Heated Dry key for 5 seconds to turn off control lock feature. If that doesn't work, replace keypad.
Keypad

Clean sanitized washing lights flashing


Hello Brian, thank you for your post!

I understand Clean, Sanitized and Washing feature lights are flashing. Let's try resetting your dishwasher. This can be done by either unplugging or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. It is important to wait approximately ten minutes and then turn your dishwasher on. Confirm that the door is securely closed and select a cycle. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, it could potentially mean a number of things: a potential wiring failure, door latch assembly, or control board. At this point, I would personally contact a professional to accurately diagnose your dishwasher to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.

Best of luck, Chris!

My Frigidaire dishwasher - most buttons don't work and clean and sanitized lights are flashing after cycle completes.


Hello Rich - From what you have described if only some cycles are working, then there seems to be a communication problem coming from the main control panel, I would suggest contacting a professional technician to diagnose the unit.

Clean lite is flashing


Hi,

This is an indication that there was a failure to heat the water properly. I have put together some instructions on how to reset the control so you can use the dishwasher and some things to check to avoid this problem again. Follow the link below and let me know if it was helpful.

Dishwasher quits running and clean lite keeps flashing.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If the clean light flashes, pauses, and then repeats. When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (clean light flashes, 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

Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
