Kenmore 587 High Temp/Heat Dry lights flashing, cycle not complete

Intermittently my dishwasher seams to stop at the end of the washing cycle, the heat stops working, and the hi temp/heat dry buttons flash. When this happens about 2 inches of water are left in the bottom of the tub. I have run all of the different cycles, some work some times and not others. I can get the water to drain by starting the cycle again and stopping it right away, but the dishes don't seem properly rinsed. Then the next time I try it it works perfectly.

    Same problem. After the washing cycle the Hi Temp and Heat Dry lights blink. Have to start a new cycle but that doesn't always work. Any tips on fixing this?

    Same problem. I tried other cycles - the problem doesn't seem to go away. The detergent is still in the box - it hasn't even washed - seems like just sprayed water.

    same problem. A similiar tip shows a control panel reset. I"m going to try that.

  • dvarros May 08, 2008

    We have had our dishwasher about one year. From the beginning it would not drain, and the hi temp/heat dry lights would come on and blink and the cycle would not finish. We had the repairman out here twice. The first time he said there was a wire not connected, the second time it was that we didn't have the drain hose installed properly. Both corrections have been made and we are still having the same problem. I am so frustrated with this dishwasher. Any suggestions that anyone has would be appreciated.

    Same exact problem! Had repair man out twice. Once he replaced the control panel the next time he "couldn't find anything wrong". Still having the problem.

It sounds like you just need to reset the controller. This is done by running (or partially running) a diagnostic cycle, which will clear the error. Here's how to do it: Depending on the model, and the keys you have, press the following sequence of keys quickly (with less that 1 second between key presses:
Heated Dry - Normal - Heated Dry - Normal; or
High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry; or
Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry, Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry; or
High Temp Wash, Heated Dry, High Temp Wash, Heated Dry.
You will know that you have entered the diagnostic cycle when all the lights light up. Let it run for a few minutes, and then press Cancel to stop the diagnostic cycle and clear the error.

Note: On some of the newer Whirlpool, Kenmore, KitchenAid dishwashers, you start the diagnostic cycle by rapidly pressing the 3 left-most keys in the following sequence: 1 2 3, 1 2 3, 1 2 3.

Kenmore Dishwasher Model 665.16719000 pushpad buttons lights flashing and won't work.


Press "high temp wash, heated dry, High temp wash, heated dry, high temp wash, heated dry, high temp wash, heated dry, high temp wash"

All the lights will go solid at which point you press cancel to reset the board.

**NOTE** if you don't have a "heated dry" button, use the "air dry" or "energy saver dry" button instead.

Clean cycle light is flashing


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If the clean light flashes, pauses, and then repeats. When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (clean light flashes, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.

To resolve this 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


Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Kenmore dishwasher 665 15752 wont cycle right


Sound like door/latch is not providing a secure door close anymore. Push on the door when the lights flash and see if this stops the blinking and continues with wash cycle. If it does, there is either somehing interfering withe the door closing fully, or the door latch on the door or dishwasher side is worn/defective.

Kenmore elite model 16574


press (high temp-wash) button and then ( heated dry)
do that 3 times in that order within 5 seconds. So it looks like this:

(high temp-wash) ( heated dry) (high temp-wash) ( heated dry) (high temp-wash) ( heated dry)

That will start a short diagnostic cycle (last about 2 minutes) that will clear the blinking light and allow you to use the dishwasher. If the light comes back, your drying cycle has failed and you will need service.

Clean light keeps blinking and I can't start a new cycle


Puppa, clear the fault by pressing the keys in this order: high temp scrb--air dry--high temp scrub--air dry. Or, depending on your model..Sani rinse--air dry--sani rinse--air dry. The dishwasher will enter the service mode. Let it do it's thing or advance it through it by pressing the start key. The fault came from the board not sensing a rise in the water temp. Make sure to run the hot water before starting the dishwasher. The heating element runs through the nuetral side of the door switch so make sure the d/w is level and the door switches are all making. The element itself could be at fault. Catriver...post back

Blinking Quick Rinse


brent, After doing a little research on this model, I see that Sears put out a service flash concerning this problem. Dishwasher stops in mid cycle and one or more of the lights are flashing. SF22-715. The correction is to replace the existing board with an updated board that controls the line voltage better. Part number 8530928. You could be covered under this flash. The tech will have to eliminate the possibility of a stuck or shorted keypad which will cause this same effect. You can try to get this back in operation by pressing in this order: high temp wash-air dry-high temp wash-air dry. This will put it into a self test mode. Just let it run through if it works. If you don't have those keys try power scour-air dry-power scour-air dry. Catriver...post back.
