 Thank You for Submitting your question to ManageMyLife.com

I can understand you frustration when your dishwasher is not working properly. No one wants to wash dishes by hand. The blinking clean light on this model indicates 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. I recommend carefully checking the heating element for any visible signs of damage or failure. If you do not see any apparent problem, you can reset this fault code by pressing the following buttons in this order (this key dance should be completed within about 5 seconds): HEATED DRY - NORMAL WASH - HEATED DRY - NORMAL WASH.

If this key dance is completed properly, all of the console lights will turn on for a few seconds and then shut off. The dishwasher will then begin a short diagnostic cycle. You can cancel this cycle with the CANCEL button. Try a test cycle and see if the heating element is working properly. If the heating element works properly and the blinking clean light does not return, you should be able to continue safely using the dishwasher. You may have received the code due to a low water level fill. Monitor the performance of the dishwasher. If the flashing clean light returns or you suspect any other problems, I recommend having  a service technician to examine the dishwasher. You can schedule an appointment by clicking the blue link below.

I know that it can be very frustrating to have issues with your dish rack. In order to replace the old one you must first get it out. To do this slide the upper rack outwards until it stops. Look at the front end of each upper rack slide rails. There will be a plastic end cap located at the end of the rail. You will need to remove these before the rack will come out. Press in on the front portion of that tab and pull out at the same time. It should just pop out. The wash parts that are above and below the rack are not attached to it, so you will not need to remove them. I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
