good afternoon.... this is a common issue that people experience. i did locate a link that will discuss your situation in greater detail. keep in mind that an expert will be responding within the next two business days if not sooner and will likely offer you more information and instruction. i hope this link will help guide you as to what might be wrong with your dishwasher and have a nice day.

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.
