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.

Kitchenaid D/W will not start, lights not all working, getting power. What's my problem?


Sylvia.....is the clean light flashing or any other for that matter? Either way it sounds like the control board is locked up. There are many posts on here about how to reset it. Try the following: With the door open:
Push Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry, Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry (all the lights should light up) then close the door and hit cancel. Push the buttons as fast as you can - within 4 seconds. This will unlock the control board and you should be able to restart the dishwasher. There are many issues with this Kitchenaid including the door popping open during cycle issue. I have dealt with all of them over the past 8 years of ownership. Finally replaced it with a used Miele and sold the KA on craigslist with full disclosure of all the issues and it's history. I even threw in the rubber door stopper that we resorted to using to keep the door closed. Let us know if the above procedure works for you. Good Luck.

My clean button keeps flashing and can not get it to reset


The only way to clear this fault code is to do a key pad dance. I know sounds funny.... I will explain, the sani buttom and heat dry are the buttoms needed. close dishwasher, push sani then heat, sani heat then heat, sani then heat. Yes three time.... This will make all the lights flash then go through a system check. This will take about 2 mins or so to complete. The dishwasher will return to normal function wise.
Basically your fault is a heater circuit problem and will need to be looked at to determine what part of the circuit failed.
Good Luck

The clean light keeps blinking and the dishwasher will not turn on. have tried to push cancel which makes the clean light blink faster.

Flashing clean light is reset by pressing two buttons in sequence 3-4 times, to reset your dishwasher press these buttons in sequence:

High temp wash-heated dry-high temp wash-heated dry

Kitchenaid kudso1dlss3 clean light flashing cannot do a new cycle


I do not have the same model as you, my model is KUD01ILBS6 but I have the same problem. A service tech told me it was a error code and here is how to fix it.

1 open the dishwasher door
2 hit high temp scrub button
3 then hit energy saver dry button
4 do step 2 & 3 again
5 close the door
6 hit the cancel button
7 you can hit cancel button again then try to start your dishwasher

This works for me, you may have to do this every few months because there is a glitch in kitchenaid where if the water temp is not sensed right it will keep the dishwasher from working. It took me 3 service calls to find this out.

Cancel light and rinse only light keep blinking and wont start


Hello,

Hopefully you have resolved your issue. I have not heard of the cancel light flashing issue. I have had problems with the clean light flashing seven times over and over and the control panel will not operate. Here is the solution to that. Maybe it will work for your issue as well.

Open dishwasher door,
Push Hi Temp Scrub button,
Push Saver Dry button,
Push Hi Temp Scrub button again,
Push Saver Dry button again,
All lights on control panel will come on.
Close dishwasher door,
Push Baked on Cookware or Normal Button.
Dishwasher should start and complete cycle.

It is good if you have kids that play video games. Their fingers are used to pushing buttons quickly. I guess this resets the control board. The service guy let me have this info as I used to deliver appliances and work on them somewhat.Hope this helps.

Good Luck,
Tom
