don't know yet brian called and no answer but if he calls me back I will find out. If its seven what am I looking at and if its not 7 blinks then what would be a solution ?
"high temp scrub, energy saver dry, high temp scrub, energy saver dry, high temp scrub, energy saver dry, high temp scrub, energy saver dry"
All the lights will go solid at which point you press cancel to reset the board.
**NOTE** if you don't have a "heated dry" button, use the "air dry" or "energy saver dry" button instead. Sometimes this is just a scrambled board and reseting it works. let me know how many blinks if you can. thanks , Bryan
I just found out it is blinking 4 times when door is closed and opened he said when the light does start to blink it is blinking 4 times hope this helps

ok thanks brian I will get back to you
the sequence brings up clean light blinking 4 times then pausing and blinking 4 times that all it blinks is 4 times. did your sequence and hit cancel several tries and board has not reset . before sending this message to you I shut off breaker to dishwasher and will power back up when I go back in. if board does not reset then what does the clean light blinking 4 times mean ??
Okay , have you tested the heater and thermostat ? also have you checked the door switches?
Hi Brian , You were right about resetting the board for the dishwasher. The sequence you gave me was just not the one for this particular machine. I had no schematics on the lower kick plate so after a little while before I was going to check the other components I asked the home owner if he had any type of paperwork for the dishwasher and he said he would look. Well guess what popped up. ""the schematic""" with this model in order to put it into diagnostics and or clear board you hit any 3 different keys consecutively for 2 to 3 times then all lights on key panel will light up then hit cancel to clear board or hit start to go through the different test cycles. hit start for the beginning of each diffent test . I just cleared the board as you suggested I start first then machine went back to working order thanks again for your help much appreciated Darren oh and the 4 blinks meant communication from the board to the motor was disrupted , loose motor control wires at connection , broken wireing some where for the motor harness. FYI
