Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
What is the model number of your unit, please?
Ok here is what you will need to do . You need to run the diagnostics routene on page 36 of the service manual. The page layout iss a bit funny but just go from left to right alternating and you will see how it works easily enough.
I have uploaded the service manual for your retrival.
Please click here for the download.
Please let me know what you come up with after you run the diagnostics.
Did the diagnostics pull up any trouble spots?
Does the unit actually complete a full cycle or just to the first drain of the water?
Sorry for the delay replying butr I had to go to work. Im on lunch at the moment. I will be back online after I go do some drywall repair. About 7pm pst.
Ok Mike that sounds like sometthing isnt resetting. I will need some time to look through the manual better. Right now I must return to work. I will do this as soon as I get home tonight.
Ok I looked over the service manual. From what I can surmise the unit will need to be tested at the connection point for the proper "strip" power configuration at the end of the wash cycle.
When you ran the diagnostics did anything at all show as unusual? Ther should be some indication of a problem when you do the tests. The tests are basicly just a shorter version of all the cycles. If there is a problem it should show up in the tests. What you want to look for is something in the fill or end of the drain cycle. Possibly the water level switch that is not closing. Please see drawing below.
ok according to a post at an appliance blog site the unit only needs to be reset.
Give this a try. 1) Open the door just a bit2) Within 3 seconds press the following sequence - Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry, Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry3) Close and lock the door4) Press the cancel button.
I usually dont have much faith in these blog sites but anything is worth a try at this point.
Please let me know if it works.
Have a look at this tech sheet
I guess I was looking in the wrong place for this answer.
And more on the subject
The clean LED blinks seven times and the dishwasherceases to operate. This condition can also apply to adishwasher that has had the electronic control replaced.A heater fault detection program has been added to theelectronic control to check for temperature rise and shutdown the dishwasher if a temperature rise is not detected.The cycles have been modified to add 8 minutes 45seconds of fixed heat at the beginning of the main wash.The control looks for the temperatures at the thermistor toincrease 4 degrees with cooler (roughly <110° F) inlet waterand 2 degrees when there is hot (roughly >110° F) inletwater. If the temperature rise is less than the criteria, thenthe unit will drain and blink the clean light 7 times. Thedetection will be ignored if the temperature is out of itsnormal range, 64° - 160° F, or the door is opened duringthe fixed heat.Proper incoming water temperature should be between 120°- 140° F.Possible causes of insufficient temperature rise wouldinclude wires off at the control, heating element, thermistor,inlet valve, door switch, motor or capacitor, failure of anyof the above components or siphoning of the water duringfill.Once a heater fault is detected and the condition resolvedthe electronic control must be reset by initiating a servicediagnostic cycle. NOTE: Using the RAPID ADVANCECYCLE will cause the blinking LED condition to reoccurbecause there is insufficient time to heat the water.
