Kenmore Dishwasher 665 16059401 - Control lights flashing Not working

A few days ago the lights on the control panel started flashing. It ran one partial cycle and then quit. Now it will start, but within a few seconds turns off, and the start light flashes. If you hit it the cancel light turns on and flashes and then sometimes both do. I tried the heated dry normal wash key dance but it isn't working. Any suggestions on how to reset or fix this thing?

    We turned off the breaker for an hour. No luck. Sometime today it started flashing clean instead. When I say "start" it had filled at one point and then it pumped it out at one point. When it started you could hear water going in to it as well. The overfill protector moves freely. It also clicks when you move it. The door latch fastens securley too.
    We took apart the keypad console and reconnected it. It is still flashing Clean. If it means anything it flashes 7 times, pauses, flashes 7 times. Thanks for the help.

    We tried hitting those keys twice each in that order within 6 seconds. It didn't light up all the keys. I'm curious why now the clean light is blinking when yesterday it was the cancel/start button were the ones Blinking. Thanks again for the help. Awating more ideas

  • JessRN Aug 27, 2007

    Which one is it the Cancel or the Start button? Mine are two different buttons.

  • JessRN Aug 28, 2007

    That didn't work either and now the clean light and the cancel light are flashing. I'm assuming this means it's a bad key pad?

Hi Have you tried resetting your house breaker to your dishwasher, by turning it off for 60 secs. then back on again? this should reset your dishwasher. By Start can you hear the pump out. or can you hear water filling the dishwasher?..if it only pumps out..it may be the Overfill protector. Check to make sure the overfill protector moves up and down freely. The overfill protector is located in the left front corner of the tub it looks like a little hat. it should move up and down easily. and you should feel/hear a click that is your float switch. also check the Door latch. Open and close the door to make sure the door latch is securely fastened. Next you may take off the console, and reset that control board to keypad console connector , by taking that loose and reconnect it. If that doesn't work, then you may need a new keypad console assembly. let me know what you are doing to do? I can help you somemore.

    The seven flashes of the clean light
    is the problem is an insufficient rise in water temperature during a pre-set time period. The heater fault-detection program that was added to the electronic control is designed to shut down the dishwasher if the board-test for proper water temperature rise is not sufficient.

    the unit will drain and the clean light will blink seven times.

    you will need to find out why the water temperture was not sufficienet rise could be wiring to/failure of the control,
    heating element
    the thermistor
    the inlet valve
    door switch
    motor
    capacitor

    to reset
    within 6 seconds press Heated Dry, Normal, Heated Dry, Normal'
    all the lights should light up. and go into self Diagnostic Mode let me know if it helps..

    turn off for 60 sec. then try
    within 6 seconds press Heated Dry, Normal, Heated Dry, Normal then press cancel/start. this should reset.. if it will not let you it must be a bad touch pad and/or control...and they must be replaced... I just hope it works for you..

I have an optima hd180 that will not power up. The projector was indicating a bad bulb, so I replaced that with a new one. Now it still will not power up and the fan does not come on either.


Problem w/ OEM bulb, it causes a lot of issues from my experience. Your ballast might have gone bad, hopefully it's just that. Check the voltage output of the ballast, make sure you're getting the proper amount.

GE gld5708vbb flashing lights locked controls


It is possible that since the neutral was bad it could have made a surge on the power and caused the processor controller to fail. It is also important that this must be confirmed to be corrected by checking with a larger load like a heater being switched on and not causing any voltage drop. If so the line is clear. Also make sure that the ground - Earth- is also intact.
The program has reset because of an error and it must be confirmed to be within or outside the washer. So remove plug and test this terminal with a large load test to confirm that the outlet is OK.
If so check the panel connections or is best to refer back to the dealer as the replaced panel will have a warranty.
Please take second opinion before the board is removed.

My model number is FDB1500LFSO, my dishwasher quit...


Is the door open or unlatched?
Make sure the door is completely closed and latched. On models with a dual-digit display, the control displays "- -" during a cycle if it believes the door is not latched. Check for obstructions (spoons, etc), interfering with the door operation. A lower dish rack that is installed backward will also cause incomplete door closure.
Is there power to the dishwasher? Electricaly ground dishwasher. Connect ground wire to green ground connector in terminal box. Do not use an extension cord. Failure to follow these instructions can result in death,fire or electric shock.


Check your household electrical box to see if a fuse has blown or if the circuit breaker has tripped. If the unit has a plug-in power cord, make sure it is plugged in.
Does your dishwasher have a rotary timer knob? (Some Models)
The cycle selection must match the position of the timer knob. Turn the timer knob to the beginning of the preferred cycle. The timer knob should click when you reach the start of the cycle.
Is the control lock option activated?
Press and hold the Heated Dry option (button with lock icon) for five seconds and the light should turn off. Instructions are also placed on the label on top of the inner door to unlock the controls.
Is the delay start option activated?
To cancel the delay and cycle, press Cancel/Drain.
Has the motor stopped for less than 10 minutes?
The motor may have stopped due to an overload. If this is the case, the motor will automatically reset itself within 5-10 minutes.
Is the Start/Resume indicator flashing?
Opening the door or interrupting the power can stop the cycle. Close the door and press Start/Resume. If the Start/Resume indicator flashes three times when you press Start/Resume, the dishwasher is waiting for you to open the door after the last cycle. Open and close the door, and then press Start/Resume.
On models where the controls are on top of the door be sure to close the door within 3 seconds of pressing the Start/Resume to start or resume the dishwasher cycle.
Is the water shutoff valve (if installed) turned on?
Make sure that the water shutoff valve is turned on.
If these tips did not work or your controls are not working correctly you may need to schedule service.

Hoover HNL7166 'Start Delay' light flashing


Hoover (Nextra series) washing machines

The 'Start' & 'Pause' LED's will flash together to indicate the error code. You have to count the flashes within each 15 second period to get that error code. The start and the pause LED's will flash together at 1Hz (i.e 1 flash per second) within that 15 second time frame, then will continue and show again within another 15secs and so on.

1 Flash = Interlock fault
2 Flashes = Fill time-out
3 flashes = Drain time-out
4 flashes = Overfill fault presure pipe blocked
5 flashes = NTC error
6 flashes = faulty control board
7 flashes = Motor jammed
8 flashes = Tacho fault
9 flashes = Motor triac on module board
10 flashes = Prog Selector or wiring fault

''clean'' light flashing (whirlpool Dishwasher GU2300XTLS1 model)


I had the same problem recently and a repair person came to my home to fix the dishwasher. He said he had to reset the control panel. He did this simply by making sure the soap dispenser door inside the washer was closed, then making sure the main dishwasher door was closed and locked. Then he quickly pushed the Heated Dry button and the Hight Temp wash button alternately. He said each button needed to be pushed twice within five seconds. After he did this all the lights on the control panel came on, then turned themselves off before the washer went in to a test cycle. This simple reset fixed the whole problem. Works great so far.
