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.

I am assuming it is a CDA cw492 dishwasher.

Panel light flashing 7 times would mean some sort of inlet water failure. Either the water tap is turned off or the inlet water pressure is low or the water inlet solenoid is faulty.

You will have to isolate one by one.

My Whirlpool DU1145XTP won't turn on. Clean light


Check the themistor in the control panel. Radio Shack sells these for about $1.30 each. I replaced the one in my dishwasher three years ago and have had no issues since.

Green light flashes 7 times - why?


Ok, the reason for the shutdown is because of a serious control fault within the control panel. it could be because of a simple lose wire or, it could be as serious as a damaged control circuit board.

The best way to find out is to use a multimeter and test all pins on the back of the control panel for their respective operational values. Make sure the wires are not worn and damaged as well. check the entire wiring harness for lose fit on all correlating parts in the unit.

If you are not an experienced electrician, i would recommend calling in a tech for a look. Your tech will run a smilier inspection to make sure its the control and not a motor malfunction.

In most cases, this will most defiantly be a control board failure and replacing the board will usually fix this type of issue.

PLease rate and god bless:)
