\015\012\015\012Thanks\015\012for using FixYa. This issue can be either due to a faulty door latch or\015\012door lock switch which is not engaging itself. And, if the door latch will not\015\012engage the dishwasher will sense it as open door and will not start the cycle. The\015\012light also blinks when the dishwasher detects a no-fill\015\012condition. You’ll need to get access to the fill valve by removing left\015\012panel, look at back to see where valve is when you get to it remove one of the\015\012wires and set meter to ohms setting and put a lead on each tag on valve. The\015\012reading you should be about 3.6k ohm if you don’t get a reading then the valve\015\012is at fault. I'll also suggest you to check the detergent dispenser\015\012solenoid for this issue. Remove the door panel and see if there is a round\015\012item at the dispenser assembly with two wires attached to it. Put the\015\012dishwasher into a cycle and when the noise appears, gently press on the\015\012solenoid to see if that is where the noise is coming from. If everything else seems to be working fine then it is the control panel that has gone bad and needs to be replaced. Please do\015\012accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further\015\012assistance.

How to diagnose? My Kenmore won't run. First it was flashing the clean light 7 times, so I figured out how to reset ("High Temp Scrub"/"Air Dry"/"High Temp Scrub"/"Air Dry"), but when I try to run a wash, it sounds like it's not getting water into the tub. When I checked it several minutes later, it was in "Cancel" mode, making a sound like it was draining (or trying to drain), then the clean light started flashing 7 times again. Clearly, the machine has something wrong but I don't know where to

Just turned the dishwasher on at the wall and tap after it's been sat off for a day. It's done one cycle (eco) and now doesn't seem to be doing anything but flashing. The two lights flashing are the power and eco lights. I have tried turning it off on the console but it turns itself back on and continues flashing. It sounds like it's whirring but I can't hear water. It did have a small leak when we first plumbed it in if that makes any difference?
