Having problems with your Kenmore 16874 Built-in Dishwasher ?

First 2 weeks ago i put an electric control module into the upper section. what comes on is the green flashing light for clean. in checking connections i found the paper for trouble shouting. i did what they said to do. they said hit the time saver - high temp - time saver - high temp. from there all the lights went on & the wash cycle started and ran. then it just stopped & the green light for clean just flashes. the water is still in the bottom & won't drain.

The error indicates that the machine has taken too long to drain the water. Do the following.

    \015\012
  1. Switch off the machine, unplug or disconnect the mains power to the machine and turn off the water supply to the machine.
  2. \015\012
  3. Remove the access panel on the lower right front of the machine.
\015\0123. Remove the filter and make sure that the filter is not blocked and is clean and clear of all debris. Clean as required. Note that if the machine has stopped and not fully drained then you may be able to drain out the excess water by removing or disconnecting the waste hose and laying it on the ground in a tray. It may take a few minutes to empty but it will save a small flood.
\015\0124. Proceed by checking the drain hose for proper connection and kinks and make sure that it is not blocked or restricted.
\015\0125. Also check that the main waste drain pipe and one way valve to a sink waste connection if you use one, is not blocked and clean if required.
\015\0126. Access the pump from under the lower rotor arm and protective grille and check that the impeller is free to move and is not clogged or restricted by debris or sludge. Clean as required.
\015\0127. Reconnect the power and switch the machine on.
\015\012If the problem persists then do the following.
\015\0128. Switch off the machine and disconnect the mains power.
\015\0129. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure it is operational.
\015\01210. Remove the connecting hoses, and expect water to drain out and make sure the pipes are not blocked with debris or any object blockage.
\015\01211. Reconnect the hoses and then reconnect power and switch the machine on.
\015\01212. If problem has not been corrected, then remove the pump and check that the drive coupling to the motor is OK and that the motor turns OK. If all is well then replace the pump.

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

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.

I have a kitchenaid dishwasher, SS, model # KUDIO1ILBL6. When you press the ''normal'' button to run it, nothing happens. Tried other cycles and same thing, the green light goes on above the cycle but its just not starting. I tried resetting by opening, pressing high temp scrub then energy saver dry, high temp scrub, energy save dry, then close and hit cancel. Is there any other combo to reset it? or does it sound like something else is wrong? thanks!

I have some problems with a Whirlpool DWF 406 dishwasher: The other day, my wife complained about it not finishing a program (just stopped and started bleeping).

Today when I got home from work, the machine just bleeped at me and and the green LED light by the start button flashed 9 times over and over again. Does anyone know what those 9 flash

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.

The "clean" light blinks 8 times, then there is a pause, then it blinks once. The dishes are clean but not dry, as if it has not completed the drying cycle. We had an engineer out to fix it who said it was the circuit board and that the blinking light code indicated "too much suds", he replaced the circuit board, but it didn't make any difference. It's an intermittent problem: sometimes the machine completes its cycle OK. I ran it with just vinegar and nothing else in (no detergent, no dishe
