Answers :

Most likely the door switch is not engaging properly. Are you able to select programs and confirm the dishwasher is responding to the buttons on the panel.

I have a'05 Kenmore Elite dishwasher. Never had a problem before. The clean button keeps flashing. Thought it was an interrupted cycle so I pressed the "Cancel/Drain" button and the motor ran, no water. Once that was done, I tried to start a new cycle and every time I push start, the green clean light flashes and the "Start" button goes off. Any help. Really don't want a repair guy. Thanks in advance

I have not been able to get the drying light to go off. I have turned the breaker off over night, and flipped back on. The dishwasher goes back to flashing washing, and then clicks to drying and th

On my whirlpool ADP962 dishwasher the start light is flashing but nothing is working. I can change the programme type (ie rinse, wash etc) but the programme will not start. I can't select either half load or a time delay. By holding the start button it will start the pump but when this stops it goes back to a flashing start light. The programme progress lights are not lit. What is this telling me and how can I reset it?
