Clean light flashing on my dishwasher - Dishwashers


Answers :

If you have a Whirlpool ( or Kenmore made by Whirlpool) the light indicates a problem with the heating element circuit. You can test the element with an ohm meter and visually inspect the wiring to the element. If the element checks out ok, then be sure there is enough water in the d/w during the whole cycle. If all this checks out , you may need a new control board.
