Re: kitchenaid dw won't go on
Salvy, see if you can get out of that fault by pressing, in this order within 6 seconds. Heated dry-normal-heated dry-normal. If you don't have those keys try- high temp-air dry-high temp-air dry. This is the service cycle, all lights should light up and the unit should go into a self test and clear the fault. The test lasts for about 25 minutes. Let us know it this works, Catriver..post back.

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.
My dishwasher did the same thing.
The repair guy fixed it and told us how to reset next time it happens:
Hi temp then
Energy saver then
Hi Temp then
do this quickly over 5 seconds
all the lights should come on
Then,turn off the breaker for one minute
then, go back to the dishwasher and press cancel. All the lights should turn off.
Start dishwasher as usual. If the cause was just a brain fart, the dishwasher should work.
Hello, With the information you supplied I'm going to assume the light is blinking 7 times and pausing then blinking 7 times and so on.
With the door cracked open hit the following button combination:
-high temp wash -heated dry -high temp wash -heated dry
Then close the door and hit cancel. The pump will run for a few moments and then you should be all set. Hope this helps Mike
The cleam light blinking means that the unit was not able to reach a proper heated wash cycle. Either your heating element failed orthe actual sump/pump motor system has failed. Check the element in the botton and see if it looks broken anywhere. If you can see a broken spot, you will k now that is the trouble.
I tried the following sequence, as recommended on a similar blog and it worked!
Quickly press :
Hi Temp Scrub
Energy Saver Dri or Heat Dri
Hi Temp Scrub
Energy Saver Dri or Heat Dry
All lights should come on
then clear and revert to cycle.
