    Still could not get the unit to start. Was not sure about the reset sequence you gave me. Here are the Cycles on my machine: Antibacterial

    Pots/Pans

    Normal Wash

    China Gentle

    Time Saver

    Quick Rinse

    Also there are Options:

    Hi Temp Scrub

    Sani Rinse

    Air Dry

    I did do the drain cycle, and still the clean light blinks. I wonder if it would be too expensive to fix this unit? Do you have any other suggestions? Thanks.

Hi



If clean light is blinking 7 times then it may be an issue with heater circuit, door switch or wash pump. If yes then please reset the power to the dishwasher. After, 5 minutes check if you are still getting the same error. If yes, then it is a water heating fault. To resolve this error try pressing this reset sequence-- Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal or High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry or Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry, Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry. Now let the unit run for 2-3 minutes and then you press the Cancel/Drain button and allow it to completely drain and reset.
If this doesn't work then it's an issue with the wash pump not pumping the water past the heater efficiently or due to lack of water to heat. Please make sure that heater is not open circuited and is heating the water efficiently. You'll have to check the heater using a multimeter; the meter should read between 3000 to 3300 ohms (Use multimeter on Rx1 ohm setting). If heater is fine then make sure water pressure is optimum and fill valve is working fine.


Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Tip

Dishwasher Clean Light Flashing or Blinking Seven Times


Whirlpool and Whirlpool-made Kenmore Dishwashers are equipped with a fault detection feature within the control software to help the user and most especially the technician diagnose a problem when it occurs. One of the common faults is indicated by a pattern of seven (7) flashes or blinks made by the Clean light indicator. It occurs when the control detects a failure in heating up the water to at least two (2) degrees Fahrenheit above the initial temperature during the first eight (8) minutes of the cycle.

The control monitors the temperature of the water both at the start and at the end the first 8 minutes of the cycle. It will not allow the machine to advance to the next cycle if the necessary end temperature of the water is not reached; instead, it will shut down the machine and will not allow the user to operate it unless the error is cleared. But the error will continue to appear until the problem is addressed.

The error can be cleared by pressing the Heated Dry button then the Normal button in sequence twice; that is, Heated Dry, Normal, Heated Dry, Normal. The user will then be able to restart the cycle but the error will eventually come up again and will not get the cycle completely done.

In order to complete the cycle, make sure water is being fed properly to the machine, the washer impeller is not stiff or stuck, and the float bulb is not stuck in the up or full position. Once all of these are ensured, preheat the water to at least 160 degrees or cool it down to below 62 degrees Fahrenheit before feeding it into the machine. These extreme temperatures will bypass the water temperature detection step and automatically proceed to the next step and complete the cycle.

The technique described above is not intended to address the problem which can be a failure of the heating circuit, water system, pump,or wash impeller. But rather to bypass the water temperature detection step and complete the cycle. The user is advised to determine the reason why the water is not able to heat up. Service of a qualified appliance technician is recommended if the user is not technically inclined to perform the necessary troubleshooting and repair. Disconnect power to the machine prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock that may result to physical injury, disability, or even death.

Dryer starts about 45 seconds into the cycle lights come on and then it starts beeping like the end of the cycle. 10 seconds later off. Very warm on top of the machine.


See my tip for buzzing dryer. Check Owner's manual, Troubleshooting. Sounds like air is not moveing and High temp cut off saftey switch doesn't like the lack of air flow. Duct clean? Check air flow from the outdoor vent. Clean vent tube/s

Dishwasher wont finish any cycles


That blinking light is trying to tell you that there is something wrong with the dishwasher. You need to fix the problem or else that blinking light will come back. And the number of times it blinks (before it pauses and repeats) will tell you (or a technician) what is wrong. How many times does it blink?

Green light on clean cycle is blinking seven times - cannot reprogram it


this usually means the chopper blade is broken or the sump screen is plugged. you will need to disassemble the sump to check

Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher Model 15882


It most likely belongs in the center of the dishwasher’s ceiling and is usually held in by a plastic pin. It is used to spray water on the dishes in the upper rack. I would need your full model number (including the part that comes before 15882, like 665. or 110. for example) to know the part number for that pin, since it is probably broken. Hope this helps!
