Question and Answers

Q:

Why is the "Clean" light flashing 7 times and then stop and repeat?

A:

A heater fault detection program has been added to the electronic control to monitor the operation of the heater. If a temperature rise in the water is not detected during the first 8 minutes of the beginning of the main wash, the dishwasher will shut down and flash the "Clean" light and disable the dishwasher.

A fault will be indicated if: A 2°F increase in the water temperature is not obtained (inlet water temp greater than 90°F) or A 4°F increase in the water temperature is not obtained (inlet water temp less than 90°F).

If the correct temperature rise is not detected, the dishwasher will drain and blink the clean light 7 times to signal to the consumer to call for service. The detection will be ignored if the temperature is out of its normal range 64 - 160° F or the door is opened during the first 8 minutes of the main wash. This is to prevent a false detection.

Possible causes that could keep the water from properly heating:

  • An open Heating Element circuit (heater, thermostat, or wiring)
  • Neutral side Door Switch not closing (check switch and door latch assembly) Note: Neutral side door switch only used for heater circuit
  • Water not coming in or lack of water (check inlet valve circuit and water pressure)
  • Lack of water circulation (pump motor or restriction in circulation channels)
  • Siphoning of water during fill (check drain hose for proper installation)

To reset the control press these buttons in this sequence: Heated Dry, Normal, Heated Dry, Normal and then let the unit run for 2-3 minutes and then you press the Cancel/Drain button and allow it to completely drain and reset. The dishwasher will run and operate normally unless it does not detect a water temperature rise again.

I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your washer if the "Clean" light flashes again after resetting and clearing the control board. If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
