The washing, heated dry, and normal wash light just flash. I have unplugged and plugged it back in several time, i tried restting it by holding down the Rinse only button for 15 seconds. I pressed the high temp ater, heated dry, high temp water, heated dry buttons to try to reset. I also ran the hot water line that feeds the dishwasher until the water was hot. Nothing has helped. The machine is18 months old and therefor no longer under warranty.


Please provide the make and model number of the dishwasher.\015\012do you hear pumps running? what was the last cycle it was at when the flashing started. was there water left at the base of the dishwasher from the cycle that stopped? ... Dishwashers

KitchenAid dishwasher, Model # KUDP021RBS1 - "Normal and cancel lights blink constantly". I had this same problem about two weeks ago so I googled your site and though the solution I found was not exactly applicable to my problem but I tried and that is - Press high Temp, heated dry, high temp and then heated dry and then cancel button and then close the door.

My dishwasher does not do a hot wash. Why is this? If I need to replace the heating element, how do i gain access to heating element on my Bosch classixx dishwasher?


Hi, a common problem with these machines is the solder coming away from the heater relay. A simple repair if your lucky. Run a continuity test on the element with a multimeter before replacing it, as it is a massive job to change it. I just changed m ... Bosch SHU9950 Dishwasher

My Kenmore model 665.16022401 has the problem w/ the clean light flashing. I tried the bottom combo of hi temp wash, heated dry, high temp wash, heated dry and it re-set my dishwasher but then after I tried to run a new load it doesn't seem like it finishes all the way through because there is still soap left in the soap dispenser and the dishes arn't all clean, plus the green clean light begins flashing again. Don't know what to do.

Need help my oven is not working, the self cleaning works fine, the broiler also works, but the oven will not heat. what can i do? Our Kenmore gas range will not heat to the proper temp. The oven ready beeper goes off in about 3 minutes and displays 350 which the internal temperature is not. There also seems to be excess heat coming from the vents under the top of the stove, (under the timer, clock etc.). This could be something I just never noticed.

Kenmore Elite Stainless Steel 24 inch tall Model 66577963K701. The heating element works for "heated dry" but not for "Hi Temperature" wash. It used to do so and when I opened the door a nice blast of steam would come out. My hot water tank is a great distance from the washer so we usually run the hot water tap in the sink for a bit until hot water comes... but the heating coil no longer kicks in on any of the cycles (Smart Wash / Normal Wash ).

Purchased in 2003. Dishes were exquisitly clean till 2008. Our water heater temp was set at 140 temp. This heater was replaced with a heater now set at 125 temp. In the past two years dishes are nowhere as clean on the the normal start setting. Should I go to the Pots and Pans start setting to get hotter water or should I turn up my water heater? All this is assuming that water is not hot enough. Does the washer heating element ever burn out?


Try turning on your water at the sink for a while on hot let it run then start the wash cycle that should help. what that will do is let the cold water run out of the pipes and therefore you will have a hot water start. ... Kenmore Dishwashers

I am having issues with my dishwasher where it appears to be working but does not clean. Hot water does enter the unit and drains properly but is not cleaning. Muck is still on the door, the arms are wet. Also, normal cycle with no extra features selected (i.e. High Heat, etc.) takes over 1 hour and 20 minutes.

The heating element does not function; it use to. Also, the detergent dispenser door does not open during the wash cycle. So, how do I determine the cause of the problem - burnt out element, bad switch, etc? Are the issues possibly connected, or separate? Thanks in advance!
