Question and Answers


clean light flashing 7 times 66516934000 Kenmore Dishwasher


Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I will be more than happy to help with your dishwasher. Upon researching model66516934000; a heater fault detection program has been added to the electronic control to monitor the operation of the heater. If a temperature rise in the water is not detected during the first 8 minutes of the beginning of the main wash, the dishwasher will shut down and flash the "Clean" light and disable the dishwasher.

A fault will be indicated if: A increase in the water temperature is not obtained (inlet water temp greater than 90°F) or increase in the water temperature is not obtained (inlet water temp less than 90°F).

If the correct temperature rise is not detected, the dishwasher will drain and blink the clean light 7 times to signal to call for service. The detection will be ignored if the temperature is out of its normal range 64 - 160° F or the door is opened during the first 8 minutes of the main wash. This is to prevent a false detection.

Possible causes that could keep the water from properly heating:

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. If it begins to flash the clean light again, I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dishwasher.

I trust this information will help you, we appreciate your business thank for choosing Sears.
