Having problems with your Kenmore Elite Stainless Steel 24" BuiltIn Dishwasher with TurboZone Rotating Spray Jets 13103 ?

2006 kenmore elite dishwasher 665-17263402- the clean light flashes 7 times , pauses then flashes again 7 times. What does that code mean? Cannot get washer to operate.


Answers :

The blinking "clean light" is a common problem with some of the Kenmore and Whirlpool models dishwashers. The problem is usually attributed to water supply temperatures being too low when filling. Apparently, there are some issues with the temperature sensing circuits in some dishwashers that causes an error code to be generated if a certain water temperature is not achieved in a specified time interval (this time may differ between models). There is a reset sequence that you can try to clear the fault. Push the NORMAL WASH then HEATED DRY buttons in that sequence two to three times. The unit will enter diagnostics mode, but can be stopped by pressing the CANCEL button. This will clear any existing faults and should return the dishwasher to normal operation.

To keep the fault from returning, it is recommended that you run your hot water faucet in the kitchen until it runs hot BEFORE you start the dishwasher. This will heat the water in the supply line for the dishwasher (most dishwashers are fed from the kitchen sink supply line). The theory is that if you fill the dishwasher with hot water from the start of the wash cycle instead of the cool water that is normally in the lines (especially if you have a hot water tank located far away from the kitchen), this should satisfy the requirements of the temperature sensing circuits. If the fault reappears, there should be a tech sheet located inside the lower panel under the door that explains what the fault is. The flashing light will be a series of flashes, followed by a pause. If you indeed have a component problem, it will depend on the number of flashing lights in the sequence. Refer to the tech sheet to determine WHAT component is affected and how to troubleshoot.

I have a Dishlex Global 500 dishwasher (DX500lWW*b). Woke up the other night to find water all over my kitchen floor. The hot water hose connector to the hot water tap split (bursted). The dishwater was not in operation at the time but I can only assume when the hose bursted the dishwater came on to alert me? the code on the dishwater is displaying ''oF'' - which means Incorrect fill level of fill time. I have consequently had the hose connector repaired but the display still has the code ''oF''

Campbell Hausfield Pressure washer model 1549. After a few years of storage, I cannot prevent the powerful spray leaking from the connection between the Gun and the Lance. I replaced the O-Ring, and tried other means unsuccessfully. Spray from the joint is almost as powerful as spray from the lance nozzle. The Briggs and Stratton engine has been cleaned and operates well. The pump operates well. But the lance connection refuses to seal.
