Question about Kenmore 16602 / 16604 / 16609 Built-in Dishwasher
Kenmore dishwasher, Model # 665.170 344 01. "Clean" light will not stop blinking. Have tried resetting it, but no luck.
If the clean light flashes 7 times, pauses then repeats...
If 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).
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
-high temp wash
...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).

Only reset you can do is unplugging power cord for 10 minutes.
The control panel it is probably faulty and in need for replacement.
