Customer: replied 5 years ago.
great! Thanks!
Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
okay try this.

Press and hold the Air Dry key for 5 seconds

to turn off (or on) the Control Lock feature.

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Ok, that worked to get the control lock light off, but the sani- clean button is still blinking and won't let me run the dishwasher. Any thoughts?
Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
is it blinking 7 times then repeating ? is it blinking fast or slow?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
yes, 7 times then repeating. About each 1/2 second. not too fast
Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.

Control is programmed to

stop the current cycle and

not allow any further

cycles if it suspects a

faulty heater (no

temperature increase

detected in heated

intervals). Control blinks

the LED 7 times in

repetitive fashion and

disables the Start/Resume

key until cleared,

Running Diagnostics clears the control and

allows it to operate again. If heating problem

is not corrected, though, the control will stop

running again on next cycle

 

you need to replace the heater to repair this. you can test it if you have a volt meter. this is the heater. heres a link to show you how with a volt meter. http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Heating-Element/W10082892/1557808?modelNumber=KUDP01DLBL6 watch the video. thanks Bryan

Thank you so much! Any idea how much someone will charge to run the diagnostic? Not sure we should keep fixing this dishwasher. Not the first time we have had problems!
Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
oh , the usual service call for diagnostic can run from $69.00 to $ 99.00 plus the part,. if you have been having a lot of trouble with this unit you may want to consider a new machine at this point.
