My Kenmore 15652 dishwasher has the Pots/Pans light blinking. When I try to press cancel the quick rinse light also blinks, as well as the cancel light and the pots/pans light. When I release cancel the pots/pans light still blinks and the other two turn off. How do I reset dishwasher so it works normal?

2 brand new Kenmore elite dishwashers - All hookups checked and correct. Start buttons blink - cycles will not start. 1 washer ran for about 10 seconds - then the light started blinking. Troubleshooting in manual says light will blink if the door is not closed. They seem pretty closed. Dishwashers leveled and plumb. Tried it mounted, and unmounted. No Luck. Thanks


These dishwashers have a safety feature. The door has to be closed within 3 seconds of pushing the start button. If the cycle is interrupted at all by opening the door or pushing something while started you will have to push the start button to resum ... Kenmore 24 in. 17482 / 17484 / 17489 Built-in Dishwasher

I have a Gallery 900 series GLDB958AS dishwasher. The cycle status lights (just right of the "time remaining" status window) continually blink. None of the buttons on the front panel work and every 10 minutes or so the water pump starts up for about a minute then shuts off. No water enters the dishwasher. I tried turning the power off then on but there is no change. Every so often a random cycle light will blink or light up for a minute, then turns off.


It seems that there is error on the program controller unit. All you need to check if that if there is moisture build up on the panels thus causing the programs to go harewire.\015\012So remove the panel and disconnect the wires, check all lead ...

Model no. MDB6100AWW. Just unloaded the dishwasher. Shut the door and immediately heard clicking (regular cadence). All indicator lights (arrow-shaped) for clean, dry, wash and heating delay were blinking. Opened the door, waited a few minutes, closed the door. Now, just the "Clean" and "6 Hour" arrow indicator lights and "Heated Dry" button light indicator are still blinking continuously. Cannot override. What's going on? Dishwasher came with the house when we purchased it 6 years ago. Proba

THe ProScrub light is steady, and the dishwasher does not work. When I push buttons, the light keeps going off, and with the next button push, it goes on. If I leave the dishwasher like this for a while, then a couple of the other lights, I think the Normal and Heated Dry lights will blink continuously. In either state, the dishwasher does not work.

I have a Whirlpool DU1048 that started out with a blinking clean light. I reset the dishwasher by pressing the heated dry and normal buttons twice. That worked the clean light stopped blinking. The problem now is the dishwasher seem to be stuck in the wash cycle. I finally have to turn it off after over an hour washing. Is this possibly a heating element problem? is that user replaceable?
