Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The control is programmed to stop the current cycle and not allow any further cycles if it suspects a faulty heater (no temperature increase detected in heated intervals). The control will blink the Clean LED 7 times in repetitive fashion and disables the Start/Resume key until cleared.

Running the diagnostic test clears the control and allows it to operate again. If heating problem is not corrected though, the control will stop running again on next cycle. See below.

To start the Service Diagnostics Cycle, press the following keys, in order, in less than 6 seconds, while in standby: Heated Dry, Normal, Heated Dry, Normal and then allow the dishwasher to run for a few minutes (3 min) and then press Cancel/Drain and then let it time out. Your dishwasher should operate again unless it does not detect a water temperature increase in the second wash cycle.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Thanks Joey, As you instructed I re-set the control board. Canceled and drained, then restarted...It worked partially a few times and back to the flashing green light. No water is coming into the dishwasher and making a very loud noise until finally green light flashes again. Because the is no water coming into the dishwasher I disconnected the water line and checked for obstructions and flow. The screen was clean and no debris from bad or sediment in water was found. Checked the float and it is also moving freely. I took the bottom rack out just for a look around, removed the wash arm and found this gasket??? Is this from a dishwasher (or just something from a dish or?) and would this part have anything to do with water not flowing into the unit? What can be some other causes of "not filling" and making a terribly loud noise while trying? As I think back...i have noticed the machine has been increasingly becoming louder the past few washings before quitting...It is a Kenmore 66516263402 and usually very quite, I think back and it did catch my attention...

The picture is that of the dispenser door gasket. Not a cause for the noise or green flashing clean light. The clean light is blinking due to the lack of water. Maybe a fill vlave issue, or perhaps syhponing due to incorrect drain installation.

Thanks, The gasket mystery is solved..Thank you! Where is the fill valve and is there a way to test? Is a incorrect draining or syhponing issue able occur after 2 years of proper working condition.What might be the sudden cause of either of these conditions? Thanks

A:

Chris: If the dishwasher is not filling with water it would cause the dishwasher to possibly sound louder and it would also cause the clean light to flash because there is no water cascading over the heating element in order to heat the water. The water inlet valve is located under the front corner of the dishwasher. The water inlet valve must have 120 volts in order to open. You can disconnect the water inlet valve and measure across the two terminals with an Ohm meter to see if measures any resistance. The fill valve should measure 890-1090 Ohm of resistance. If it measures within 890-1090 Ohms and the inlet valve is getting the water supply, it could be a faulty water inlet valve, float switch or a faulty electronic control board.

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com

I am sorry and do understand your frustration when the dishwasher is flashing.  If it is flashing 7 times there is nothing that can be done but call Sears service at 1-800-469-4663.  One of the things to look for is the heating element going out.  It says the heating element or buying a new control panel.  If it is the control panel I need to know which color of dishwasher you have to help with the information you need.
