Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the dishwasher. The clean light flashing fault code indicates that the control board did not detect a 2 degree F increase in the water temperature if the initial inlet water temperature was greater than 90 degrees. It will also trip if a 4 degree increase is not detected when initial inlet water temperature is less than 90 degrees.

Possible causes that can keep the water from properly heating include:

  • Heating element is bad.
  • Wiring to the heating circuit is loose or broken.
  • Thermostat (thermistor) is bad. Wiring to the thermistor is bad.
  • Neutral side of the door switch is bad.
  • Water not coming in or a lack of water.
  • Siphoning of water during filling due to improper drain hose installation.

You can reset the control by running the diagnostic test cycle. Start this cycle by pressing the following buttons in this order: HEATED DRY, NORMAL WASH, HEATED DRY, NORMAL WASH. The buttons must be pushed within 5 seconds. After pushing these buttons, all the control lights will turn on and then the dishwasher will complete a short test cycle. After the test cycle, the control will be reset.

You can start a new cycle and crack the door to stop the cycle after the filling is complete and before the spray starts. Open the door and check the water level in the tub. The water should be within a 1/4 to just touching the bottom of the heater element.

Check the heater element. If it is not heating, disconnect electrical power and check the wiring. If the heater element is bad, it will need to be replaced. If not, your clean light fault code will return.

If you reset the control and the fault does not repeat, you should be able to continue to use the dishwasher. Monitor the water fill and the heating circuit for problems.

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 .

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Hi Mark, I have the same problem on a 1 year old Kitchenaid KUDE70FVSS. After resetting, the issue returned after a few loads. The water is filling and circulating properly. How can I tell if the heating element is heating? Thanks, Rob

Hello Rob, Your dishwasher is a little different. It has a control that will narrow the problem down to a component problem. To determine the problem you will need to count the number of flashes of the clean light. The two images below will help in diagnosing the dishwasher. If you need further assistance, please reply with more details.

A:

The blinking clean light can mean there was a heater circuit failure. The electronic control board did not detect the expected rise in water temperature during the water heating portion of the wash cycle. This can be caused by a failed heating element or a number of other component problems.

Try pressing the following sequence on your dishwasher's display:

Heated Dry>Normal>Heated Dry>Normal within 6 seconds

This should reset the control board. If this does not work, I would recommend having a licensed professional diagnose and repair your dishwasher.
