Did you have a power outage recently? They are notorious for damaging circuit boards--usually about 3-4 weeks after the power interruption strange things will either start happening or *not* happening with appliances due to damaged computer chips on the boards starting to fail. Your symptoms indicate either a blown user interface(push button panel) or a defective main control board(board with the brains on it) or both!

Model # is listed above in original post. No water underneath. If I pour water into bottom of tub, the pump will drain the water out. I can watch the water through transparent drain tubing as it pumps out. No water outside of tub anywhere. Tub drains complete and pump keeps running. If I turn off the breaker & wait 10 minutes or so, the pump will stay off until the door is reclosed or the control buttons are touched at all. Any button, its back to continuous with no led on panel lit.

SOURCE: GE Dishwasher no water upon start, humming, blinking lights

Seems like the anti flood is activated when water (even a small amount) appears on the bottom of the machiene. This is usualy a leaking pipe but can also be caused by a clogged pipe. Most machiens do have a plastic pipe that (from the flat water tank) feeds water to the bottom of the machiene in case of an internal fault. The anti flood is normaly a polystireen float with micro switch on the base of the washer. This automatically puts the outlet pump on to drain the water. The machiene does not work exept the outlet pump in this mode.

SOURCE: Dishwasher front panel lights are all blinking in

It would help to know what the make and model of the dishwasher is.

Most likely the flood switch at the base has been activated.

How do I reset the control panel on my dishwasher?


could be wites in the door at the hinge, the microswitches in the door lick assembly, or if it is a series of flashes it could mean a code depending on your model number. Last to check is visuals on the control board for burning, or any loose wiring.

Cancel Light Flashing on Kitchen Aid Dishwasher


I found this post elsewhere. It seems to have worked for me: Our KitchenAid KUDP series dishwasher went into a mode where it would not start and would only respond to the cancel/drain button. The clean light would flash 7 times in a row, stop, and then repeat. I read that the 7 flashes indicates an error code and that the dishwasher has detected a problem in the heater element circuit. I tried to reset the error mode by turning off power for 15 minutes, however, that did not work.
We called for a repair. The service person found that the dishwasher was completely fine except that it had gone into an error mode. The technician reset the error mode and charge us $115.00.

The reset sequence used was reported to be the following:
1) Crack the door open.
2) Within 3 seconds press the following sequence - Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry, Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry
3) Close and latch the door
4) Press the cancel button (the circle with the triangle in it)

We were told the dishwasher expects to see the dish water temperature rise in a certain way. If the water does not heat in this way, the dishwasher becomes confused and thinks the heater element has failed. In deed, this happened just following and extended power failure and our hot water tank was cool. I am curious if this code will work for anybody else with the same problem and save a service call and 115 bucks. Overall, this seems to be a serious logic flaw in the design.

Dishwasher heating element won't turn off


Hello niki4god - I recommend resetting the dishwasher by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. It is important to wait approximately ten minutes and then turn on the unit. An experienced service technician may need to further evaluate this issue if it was not resolved with the power reset. In this case, your unit may possibly be experiencing a communication problem with the control board or a potential wiring failure.

Blinking light on Kenmore Pro 13873K dishwasher: won't run


May be the drain pump is jammed. Try to clean the area and after that try to reset the panel. Download the user manual and there must be the reset sequence.

GE Max dishwasher no lights on panel


I have the same problem and actually found a workaround by mistake you may try as a temporary solution (if that works for you):

- press and hold the lock button for a couple of seconds
(the delay timer would increase by 1 hour)
- press and hold the lock button again
- repeat until it reaches 9hrs
- repeat one more time: the control panel should be functionnal again.

Let me know if that worked for you!

Dishwasher not working - Cancel light flashing


If your dishwasher doesn't work at all, check these:

Power from the house
Door switch
Wiring
Timer or selector switch
Power from the house Is there power getting to the dishwasher? This can be difficult to test, because dishwashers are usually wired directly to an electrical circuit, rather than plugged into the wall. But at least check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.

Door switch The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it.

Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors.

Timer or selector switch Although it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If so, you need to replace the defective part, because neither of these can be repaired.
