The clean light on your Kenmore Elite Dishwasher model #665.13793k601 blinking 7 times?
The clean light flashing 7 times on your dishwasher is indicating a heating circuit failure of some sort. This type of failure could be caused by several components.
If the correct temperature rise is not detected, the dishwasher will drain and blink the clean light 7 times to signal to the consumer to call for service. The detection will be ignored if the temperature is out of its normal range 64- 160 degrees Fahrenheit 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:
Troubleshoot the dishwasher for possible cause. Perform repair accordingly. Reset the electronic control by initiating a diagnostic cycle. Check the product Tech Sheet for the correct cycle sequence. The service diagnostic cycle is activated by pressing the following keys respectively:
Heated Dry , Normal , Heated Dry , Normal
If you are still having problems with the dishwasher,you may need a hands on tech on location this time to properly diagnose your dishwasher.This problem is not always a home handy person fix.
