Having problems with your KitchenAid Dishwashers ?

Clean light keeps blinking; ran cancel cycle, cannot start cycle anew


Answers :

Hello,\015\012\015\012Welcome to FixYa.\015\012\015\012Based on the info of your post and knowing now you've attempted the "reset" and the error returned, you either have a wire off the heating element, or the element is no good ( a thermistor or control is possible but not likely ). Either case you'll need to remove the lower access panel and visually inspect for a wire off and ohm out the heating element if no wire is off. **Make sure to turn the breaker off or unplug the unit...safety first** Depending on the install and your ability this may not be too bad, or you may decide to call in a pro...let me know and I'll try and guide you if need be. The element leads are at the very back of the dishwasher underneath and are quite difficult to see or find if one doesn't know what to look for. Some decide to pull the dishwasher out of the cabinet for easier access, that's up to you.Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa.\015\012\015\012Regards,\015\012\015\012Macmarkus :)
