Question about Kenmore 24 in. 17012 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Green ('Clean') light flashing

And the manual says to call the repair service and have them check the 'heater circuit'. Of course this machine has two, for heating the water, and for drying. Any ideas where to look for the problem? The annoying thing is that we never use the heating element to dry dishes, to save energy. But it may be that the sensor does not allow the machine to work if it malfunctions?

Try this: fill the machine with cold water from your garden hose and start it up. the machine should recognize the water full condition and continue to start washing. wait about 7 minutes and stop it. open the door. did the water heat?

I have a Whirlpool DU1055XT. The unit will not work

Hi,

The flashing light indicates the water is not heating, there could be several reasons for this, I have created instructions on how to reset the dishwasher so you can use it and why it may have occurred. If you follow these and still have trouble let me know and we can dig into it deeper.

Whirlpool dishwasher model number GU3600XTSY2 is flashing: The clean light is flashing! It's not the heater circuit either. It says the dishwasher is malfunctioned. Call for service to check heater...

The clean light sometimes flashes and just needs to be reset. To do so hit the keys in the following order. <Heated Dry> <Normal Wash> <Heated Dry> <Normal Wash> <Cancel>.
The dishwasher will go through a cancel cycle (drain the tub) and will then let you start it up again

My clean light is flashing....call service to check heater?

f the clean light flashes 7 times, pauses, then repeats...

When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it will stop working and lock the functions (clean light flashes 7 times, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water. Check the element for damage (burnt/shorted).

To clear the flashing light you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...

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

...all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cycle finish (1-2 minutes).
You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.

If the issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit (ie. element, thermostat or wiring). It rarely happens but it could also be the door switch not engaging properly when the door is closed (slightly bend the door latch down making sure it doesn't hit the door when you close it).

Whirlpool dishwasher ADP905

Depress start button till start light goes out. Close door, drain pump should run for a while. Wait for end of program, rer-try a new program start. This process is re-setting memory.If this fails to sort problem then start checking components, ie: fill valve water on? heaters open circuit/down to earth, drain pump, is it emptying, wash pump.

Flashin power light - wont come on

The "green light flashing to the chirping" circuit may be defective.

Not a basic diagnosis--service literature and/or knowledge of each green light circuit will be needed.Possible shop repair.
