Having problems with your Kenmore Dishwashers ?

Hello, the "clean" light continues


Answers :

Hello, Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description, "clean light is still on" this is actually an error code as you may or may not know, associated with the heating process. What typically happens is poor water circulation preventing the water from heating properly.


To resolve this, I'd start with the following...the wash pump area. You`ll need to follow these steps to clean it.

1 ) Remove the turbo wash tube if applicable to your model, it pulls off, i.e.

2 ) Spray arm removal. hold the center nut and spin the arm.

3 ) Now you can remove the upper spray arm supply tub or referred to sometimes as "rear feed cap".
a ) lift to depress the rear tab, i.e.

b ) Then twist the feeder to the right ( clockwise ), i.e.
5f19a61.jpg
4 ) Now you can remove the center nut...

Then remove the four # 20 torx head screws holding the filter in place, and lift the filter out.

Below the filter you`ll find food debris, undissolved detergent etc, but also a cover with a single #10 torx head screw to remove and the cover will pull straight up and out. the arrows from left to right in the image indicate...

1) screw location
2) tab to pull up on
3) the latch you may need to twist to the left to remove the cover
i.e.

Now you should see the chopper and screen assembly, it too can be clogged up pretty bad, clean it best you can...you don`t really want to remove this part. Make sure there is no debris present where I've indicated here with the arrow below.

If my explanation is not clear enough, here`s a link which provides a pretty good video of how to do this, these guys aren`t pro`s but the "how to" video is pretty thorough nonetheless.

Once these actions have been performed you'll need to clear the error code. to do so is as followsPress the following buttons in this sequence...

HEATED DRY - NORMAL, HEATED DRY - NORMAL, HEATED DRY - NORMAL

This diagnostic cycle may take approx. 15-20 minutes to complete. Let it proceed through to completion and you should be good to go...unless the heater itself is at fault or a wire has vibrated loose from the heater...those are steps to follow if OR when necessary.

Let me know how you make out, please keep me informed if you need further assistance or anything is unclear. Please take a moment to rate me assistance and a short testimony is appreciated as well.

Thank you for choosing FixYa and good luck.

Hi...my dishwasher 'clean' light continues to blink. I can hit cancel and it sounds like the cancel cycle is running. After that the light keeps blinking and I can not start the machine. If you hit start the light goes on, then stops, and the clean light flashes again. Any clues? Thanks!

Model no. MDB6100AWW. Just unloaded the dishwasher. Shut the door and immediately heard clicking (regular cadence). All indicator lights (arrow-shaped) for clean, dry, wash and heating delay were blinking. Opened the door, waited a few minutes, closed the door. Now, just the "Clean" and "6 Hour" arrow indicator lights and "Heated Dry" button light indicator are still blinking continuously. Cannot override. What's going on? Dishwasher came with the house when we purchased it 6 years ago. Proba

I have a Kenmore 665.1373 Ultra Wash dishwasher that will not work. In the past few weeks, it stopped mid-cycle, the the clean light began to flash. Sears sent out a technician who told us that the latch was not catching. He adjusted it, did something with a computer and the dishwasher worked for a couple of days. This time, it would not start a cycle, it would only show heated dry if you pushed the smart wash button and nothing if you press start. It looks like some of the lights are continuous

I have a Whirlpool ADG937 dishwasher (9 years old) which will not complete a 65c wash cycle. It starts Ok and runs for a long time but then continually bleeps, when I open the door the programme indicator light is on the rinse cycle. If I reset the programme to 65c it may do the same or occasionally it will finish the cycle. I have tried salt top-up, descaling and filter cleaning all to no avail. Is the programmer faulty (can I bypass it?)or should I replace the washer?
