Call sears, 1-800-4MY-HOME. They have a trouble-shooting department that will get rid of this problem. It is caused by water temperature being wrong at the start of the cycle.... blah, blah, blah. The representative will tell you to push a certain set of buttons in a certain order and that unlocks the dishwasher.

\015\012Sorry I don't know the sequence
D'oh!!! Found the magic 4 button sequence that resets the dishwasher at this site. Dang, the dishwashers even have computers/brains now. The sequence is press Heated Dry, then Normal Wash, then Heated Dry again and finally Normal Wash again. Basically turning both on and then turning them off. Then ALL THE LIGHTS on the dishwasher came on. Looked like a x-mas tree. Hitting the cancel button cleared it.

\015\012It still left me with the blinking green clean light but I did "the 4 button sequence" again, waited several minutes with all the lights on and then hit the cancel and now my dishwasher is able to work again. YEAH!!!

\015\012Note: I did clean out underneath the filter (required 2 tools) which had some stuff it it but that didn't fix the problem by itself. May help in the long though. I also found the manual and it said the blinking green clean light is a problem in the heating coil (or a water temperature problem) and suggested calling service. Point is, it the blinking green light returns again, you might actually need service to deal with the real problem that's triggering the flashing green light. Nite and good luck.

I see the pressure tower for a Kenmore Ultra Wash Quiet Guard dishwasher laying in the bottom of the dishwasher. I've just rented the house and haven't used the dishwasher yet. Does this pie


No, the designers put it in there for a reason; it won't work as well without it, as it would with it in. Probably the mounting tabs are broken or sprung. A new tower isn't very expensive. You can probably get one from SearsPartsDirect.com, Repair ... Kenmore Dishwashers

Dishwasher malfunction I have a Kenmore Ultra Wash Quiet Guard 3 dishwasher. One day, I found it with a blinking green ?clean? light. I went online to search for the manual, almost impossible to locate. Found a website where another using said to hit a 4 button sequence of ?heated dry? ?normal wash? ?heated dry? and normal wash. After this sequence, all lights went on and something that looked almost like a ?demo? sequence began (not sure now what that was). I hit ?cancel/drain? and it proceeded

Broken dishwasher We recently had a plumbing problem that resulted in the kitchen sink overflowing and flooding the kitchen. The cabinets to the left of the sink were full of water and the dishwasher to the right of the sink will not work.

I can hit the cancel button and it will make sounds like its trying to drain, and after about 5 minutes stops. I've done the heated wash/ no heat dry sequence to try to reset but no luck.
