SOURCE: clean light blinks 7 times continuously

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

When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks 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. Let it go through the diagnostic to test the function of the element.(1-2 minutes). When it finishes, open the door and touch the element to see if it is hot (be careful, it can get pretty hot so wet your fingers to avoid burns).
Once the diagnostic has cleared, you should 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).

Good luck!

SOURCE: Kenmore dishwasher model #665.17034401 --- Clean light blinks

The blinking clean light is an interruption in the dishwasher program that indicates a component malfunction, or it can be a result of a momentary program glitch. If a component is defective, it's usually attributed to the heating cycle or thermostat failure. The following link explains how you may be able to clear the blinking clean light problem and possibly avoid a service call:

Keep in mind all dishwashers are not alike and have different panel options. If you do not have the same set up that I have mentioned, the tech sheet for your dishwasher will explain the touch pad functions. 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. Just remove the screws that hold the panel in place and remove.

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.

In many cases, I found this to be a momentary glitch in operation. If the problem keeps reoccuring the number of flashes is an indication of WHICH circuit is causing your problem. As all dishwashers differ in operation and features, refer to your tech sheet for the recommended troubleshooting steps.

NOTE: Some dishwashers use the Sani-Rinse/Air Dry combination, some use the Sani-Rinse/Heated Dry combination. Some use a sequence of three, others use a sequence of 5 pushes of the buttons. If the tech sheet is not located behind the lower toe panel, it should be affixed somewhere under the dishwasher. I have also found them located inside the inner door panel. Let me know if you still need assistance.

The blinking "clean light" is a common problem with some of the Kenmore and Whirlpool models dishwashers. The problem is usually attributed to water supply temperatures being too low when filling. Apparently, there are some issues with the temperature sensing circuits in some dishwashers that causes an error code to be generated if a certain water temperature is not achieved in a specified time interval (this time may differ between models). There is a reset sequence that you can try to clear the fault. Push the NORMAL WASH then HEATED DRY buttons in that sequence two to three times. The unit will enter diagnostics mode, but can be stopped by pressing the CANCEL button. This will clear any existing faults and should return the dishwasher to normal operation.

To keep the fault from returning, it is recommended that you run your hot water faucet in the kitchen until it runs hot BEFORE you start the dishwasher. This will heat the water in the supply line for the dishwasher (most dishwashers are fed from the kitchen sink supply line). The theory is that if you fill the dishwasher with hot water from the start of the wash cycle instead of the cool water that is normally in the lines (especially if you have a hot water tank located far away from the kitchen), this should satisfy the requirements of the temperature sensing circuits. If the fault reappears, there should be a tech sheet located inside the lower panel under the door that explains what the fault is. The flashing light will be a series of flashes, followed by a pause. If you indeed have a component problem, it will depend on the number of flashing lights in the sequence. Refer to the tech sheet to determine WHAT component is affected and how to troubleshoot.

Buttons on the dishwasher's control panel is not working. When starting a "normal" load, it switches to "clean" and does not start the wash.


Hello. Most likely, the humming sound you hear is a jammed drain pump which is activated immediately to pump out any stale or standing water below the level which you can see. Then, fresh, hot water enters the tub to start washing the dishes. I need the model number and exactly what lights are blinking--those blinking lights are error codes(combinations of 2 or more lights, one light blinking a certain number of times, then blinking again, a different number of times--ex 3 times, then 7 times) the lights blink a binary error code--thats why I need the model number to look up the code on the chart

Why blinking lights, won't wash, drains water out?


Hello. You didn't provide any brand/model number but the flashing lights are most likely digital error codes flashing in a pattern. For instance, there could be the "clean" light flashing groups of 2 blinks and then 7 blinks or the "sensing" light flashing a certain number of times and then the "rinse" light flashing another number...these error codes will tell you where the problem lies. As a built-in safety feature, the unit will try to wash the dishes but when something fails internally, the program will stop, and then drain out the water, then flash the error code of the part that failed--for example, if the water temp was improper for a certain length of time, a motor pump failure, heater failure, water level wrong--there are many codes. Hope I shed some light on the problem!

Clean light blinking


If the clean light blinks four times and then pauses and then blinks four times again and repeats, the problem is your pump motor. If there is water under the DW the pump clamp has probably failed and sprayed water onto and inside the motor. Call a certified Kitchen Aid repair service.

What is making my kenmore dishwasher blink clean?


That blinking light is trying to tell you that there is something wrong with your dishwasher. Watch that blinking light.... Does it blink 7 times, pauses, and repeats? Or does it blink 3 times (or some other number). The most common problem is 7 blinks which means "water not heating error". This could be caused by a bad heating element, a bad thermal cutoff device or thermostat, a bad controller, or a problem with the door latch and/or switches.

The model number is normally on the side of the door or frame. Otherwise if you unplug your dish washer I would suggest taking the front face off the door and see if you can find a service manual. Those blinks may be an error code

My kenmore elite dishwasher will not start.


Thanks to another post, i found how to clear this code, by alternating between the High temp dry and air dry buttons the dishwasher went into diagonostics, then cleared. I found then that the washer would fill but not wash then it would drain. I found the motor was almost seized, I am replacing. The 7 flashes must be a code for the motor going on overload.
