Make: Kenmore ultra wash QuietGuard DeLuxe
Model: XXX.XXXX K900
took the current off it to stop the flashing and then tried again to start it
The blinking CLEAN light is an error code for a water heating failure .May I have your options (not cycles) on your control panel? So I can walk you thru proper diagnostics for your model.
every day i do as option Normal Wash (if that is what is meant by option) and water heating is working perfectly ( i always let it run to heat the water up as mentioned in the manual).I hope this reply will be helpfull for you.
No the options that are on the control panel can you give then to me
Options are ( i need to read better sorry) <High Temp> <Sani Rinse> <Heated Dry> then <2><4><6><delay hours> <Cancel Drain> and as last <Start/Resume>
ok press the (normal) cycle button ,
then the option Heated Dry ,
Then AGAIN the (normal) cycle button
Then Again the heated dry button
then make sure the door is shut ,and ALL the light should come on ,
then wait for 30 sec and press cancel twice.
Then start the unit ,and see if it now works .
sorry , but the only light which is coming up is the Normal Wash one (flashing)
and you had the door shut ?
yes i did totally shut
Lets try it again Normal ,Heated dry ,Normal, Heated dry
sorry the only light is flashing is the Normal the Heated is not coming up even it does not even light up/flash.
And you are pressing them as fast as you can ?
One then the other, one then the other?
i did that now yes, with the same result, sorry
Ok Then you will need a new control ,
Can you check your model number once again ?
