Green Clean Light is Flashing
I have a Kenmore Ultra Wash model 665.131123. The dishwasher will not start a cycle. The green clean light flashes 6 times then once more. Would you tell me what this code means? Is this something I could fix?

I know that it is very inconvenient it is for your appliance to not work properly. While you are waiting for your expert answer, I have found a link that will provide some information and troubleshooting for this problem. I hope this will help you.

The model number that you provided seems to be slightly off. I recommend that you recheck that number. Based on the first 7 digits (665.13112), this dishwasher appears to have a heater circuit fault that would cause the clean light to blink 7 times, pause and repeat that sequence. If your dishwasher is displaying that code, you may be able to reset it using the advice in that previous answer provided in the above response.
Check that heater in the bottom of the tub. If you see damage, that component will probably need to be replaced.
If you see no apparent problems with the dishwasher and it works properly after resetting that code, you may not need service.
If you do need to have the dishwasher serviced, you can schedule as Sears Technician through this link: Sears Home Services .
If you need more help, reply with additional details and an updated model number.

Sorry it had 1 extra digit. The model is 665.13123K703. The flashing shows a distinct 6 flashes, a pause, then 1 flash, then repeats after a long pause. I thought I read that this code means it could be a motor problem. Would you confirm this. Are there any checks I could do before I call Sears Home Service?

Thanks for updating that model number. That fault code does indicate that you have a communication error between the control board and the wash motor. I added a link below that explains the technical aspects of that repair. You can review that information. If you are completely confident that you can repair that problem yourself then you can use that information to fix this problem. Be sure that you shut off the circuit breaker for the dishwasher before accessing internal components. That is an advanced repair. If you are not confident that you can fix it yourself, then I recommend you call a technician. Let me know if you need more help.

Hello Jim. The images below provide some information about the error codes on that dishwasher. The complete light flashing 4 times normally indicates that you have a problem with the wash motor or the wiring harness between the control board and the wash motor. The second image shows a diagnostic test that you can use to determine the specific problem. This information may help you begin to troubleshoot this problem. Reply with additional details if you need more assistance with this failure.
