My Kenmore Dishwasher 665.16359301 quit working. I flipped off the breaker then back on again. The cancel light comes on and it sounds like its going to drain but theres no water in it. After about 20 seconds it stops and the normal wash cycle light starts blinking. Thats it. I did the reset procedure and it started to work then went back to the normal wash light blinking.

Maytag MDB5601AWS Dishwasher worked fine when I moved into my new home less than 2 weeks ago. It just stopped working a few nights ago and the sellers did not leave info on the dishwasher.

The DELAY WASH button blinks for a while, and then all lights on the panel go off completely. No noise at all comes from the

GE GSD5320 seemed to finish all light wash cycles. Then it began to beep, with the NORMAL light blinking. I hit RESET, but none of the other buttons worked. I threw the circuit breaker for this appliance and waited an hour. I Turned the circuit breaker on but now I get the NORMAL light blinking, even when the door latch is not engaged. No buttons work.

I have a Whirlpool DU1048 that started out with a blinking clean light. I reset the dishwasher by pressing the heated dry and normal buttons twice. That worked the clean light stopped blinking. The problem now is the dishwasher seem to be stuck in the wash cycle. I finally have to turn it off after over an hour washing. Is this possibly a heating element problem? is that user replaceable?

Pots/pan light blinks alternately with the normal wash button. Sometimes the cycle will start and then the lights come on. Once they start blinking, the cycle stops and I can't get it to start again. Unplugging it for a few days has worked a few times. But it just keeps getting more frequent. If it does start up, it heats fine and washes perfectly.

My Kenmore ultra wash dishwasher fills with a little bit of water but does not spray water and does not proceed through the wash cycle. Any advice? We had problems yesterday with blinking lights and not able to get anything to work except the drain. then we followed a sequence of pushing buttons and it solved the first problem.
