Won't fill clean light blinks seven times

\015 Won't fill clean light blinks seven times\015

Answers :

The thermistor beneath the accumulator inside the sump\015\012detects the water temperature as it begins the first 8 minutes of the main wash\015\012cycle. During this time, the controller expects the thermistor to detect the\015\0122-4 degrees rise in the water temperature when the first 8 minutes is\015\012completed. If the expected temperature rise is not met, the controller will not\015\012be satisfied. It will shut the dishwasher down and blink the clean light 7\015\012times.
\015\012In your case, the dishwasher does not fill so no water temperature rise is detected and it shuts down and clean light blinks 7 times. Press the heated dry then normal wash buttons in the same\015\012sequence two times. The unit will enter diagnostics mode, but\015\012can be stopped by pressing the cancel button.It will clear the fault but will appear again making the dishwasher not to work unless the filling issue is not resolved. Resolve it first. You may need the

  1. Make sure the water supply is on.
  2. \015\012
  3. Make sure the float switch float is not stuck in the up or full position. There is a small electrical switch located right below\015\012the dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of the\015\012dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills the\015\012dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets\015\012caught or trapped in the raised position, the water can not enter the\015\012dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it.

  5. Check the water-inlet valve. It lets water enter the machine. If this valve is\015\012defective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually located\015\012behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the\015\012device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house is attached to with two wires connected to it. You can hear it clicks when activated. If not, it's defective and must be replaced.

Now, keep in mind all dishwashers are not alike and have different panel options. If you do not have the same set up that I have mentioned, the tech sheet for your dishwasher will explain the touch pad functions. The tech sheet is located behind the lower toe panel under the door and lists the proper sequence of buttons to push for diagnostics and troubleshooting. Just remove the screws that hold the panel in place and remove.

NOTE: Sometimes the tech sheet is located behind the inner door panel. You will need to remove the screws securing the inner panel to access it if this is the case. Make sure you turn off the main power breaker before doing so.

I have often found this to be a momentary glitch in operation. However, if the problem keeps reoccuring the number of flashes is an indication of WHICH circuit is causing your problem. You will need to refer to your tech sheet to determine this.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you solve your problem.

Dishwasher is less than a year old. Once in a while it will stop about 10 minutes into the cycle, then the display lights will blink. Sometimes it will stop and the lights wont blink so we will come back later thinking it is done only to open it up and there is water sitting in the bottom. Doesnt happen all the time but sometimes and yesterday happened about 10 times finally gave up. I can cancel and restart the cycle but the same thing happens.
