Question about Dishwashers
"clean" light blinking
If I may offer an alternative method.....
Even if you (with or without the help of the experts) have identified the heater fault (real or false trigger), perhaps you may want to reconsider performing a DIY. This is based on a "Service Pointer" issued by Whirpool (rebranded Kenmore) on January 2005 Ref. K8178496 where the fault has been acknowledge and to my understanding, the manufacturer is responsible for rectifying the defect. Pls reference this page.
Incidentally, there is a video tutorial specifically addressing this particular problem.
The above information were sourced from here.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

The humming you hear is probably not a stuck motor but a problem with the motor windings best solution is replace wash motor assembly ..the water is drained by a completely separate motor that is removable from main wash assembly ..have tried what you have numerous time with only occasional sucess a complete replacement is usually the only solution

To clear the error code, hit heated dry then normal wash, heated dry-normal wash. all lights will light up, hit cancel, that should clear the error.
