Question and Answers

Q:

Blinking green light. 66516293400 Kenmore Elite Dishwasher

A:

Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect. I will be more than happy to assist you with your Kenmore dishwasher.

From the information you have provided above, after researching model number 665.16293400.  here are some reasons for the error 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 hope you found this information useful. Again thank you for choosing Sears, we appreciate your business, have a great day.

Thank you for choosing ManageMyLife.com and allowing us to help you. You stated that you did not have your owner's manual. Click here to download your manual in a PDF format. If the dishwasher won't run at all and the clean light is flashing 7 times it is because the control thinks the heater is not working. You can clear the error by running a diagnostic test but if the heater isn't working then the lights will flash again until the problem is fixed. The image below will show you how to enter and run a diagnostic cycle. This should clear the error and allow you to use the dishwasher. Try to notice if there is any steam at the end of the cycle or if the dishes are hot to touch. If there is no steam and the dishes are not hot then it is likely the heater is not working. The problem can be the element, hi limit thermostat or control.

SAFETY NOTICE: Be sure to disconnect power to the appliance before performing any repairs. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks that might be recommended, please contact your local service provider for repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others.

 If you do not feel comfortable repairing this problem yourself, you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Click here to schedule service online at the Sears Home Services website. A 10% discount coupon is available when service is set on line.
