I have a'05 Kenmore Elite dishwasher. Never had a problem before. The clean button keeps flashing. Thought it was an interrupted cycle so I pressed the "Cancel/Drain" button and the motor ran, no water. Once that was done, I tried to start a new cycle and every time I push start, the green clean light flashes and the "Start" button goes off. Any help. Really don't want a repair guy. Thanks in advance

I have a maytag dishwasher mdb5601awb. when I hit the start button nothing happens. I have found the instructions to do a manual test which is hitting the heated dry button 5 times and then the start button. Thinking it will run some test which I have no idea what to look for, it actually runs the machine's wash cycles and clean, dries and tells me it clean with the green light goes on. How do I reset/reboot the machine so it starts by just hitting the start button again?

I have a Kenmore 665.1373 Ultra Wash dishwasher that will not work. In the past few weeks, it stopped mid-cycle, the the clean light began to flash. Sears sent out a technician who told us that the latch was not catching. He adjusted it, did something with a computer and the dishwasher worked for a couple of days. This time, it would not start a cycle, it would only show heated dry if you pushed the smart wash button and nothing if you press start. It looks like some of the lights are continuous
