The blinking clean light normally indicates that the control detects a problem with the water heating function. See if it blinks seven times, pauses and repeats. If it does, then I recommend that you check the heating element in the bottom of the tub for damage. If that element is damaged or broken, it will need to be replaced. You can order parts from the

Sears PartsDirect

website. NOTE: The model number that you submitted appears to be slightly off. You should have another numerical digit just before the "K" in that model number. Use the full model number to access the parts list diagram for your dishwasher on that

Sears PartsDirect

when ordering parts.

Here is a link for a video that shows how to replace the heating element in this type of dishwasher:

Dishwasher Heating Element Replacement

.

If that heating element is okay then you could have a problem with the water fill level, the thermistor (temperature sensor for the water) or the control board.

You can reset the control board by starting that diagnostic test program shown in the image below. That test program will check that thermistor (see NOTE 5). You can use that information to determine whether you have a problem with that thermistor.

After that diagnostic test cycle runs, the control panel will be reset. You should be able to run a normal cycle in the dishwasher. If the blinking clean light returns, then you will probably need to have the dishwasher serviced by a technician. Here is a link for the Sears Service website:

Sears Home Services

.

If the light is blinking rapidly instead of 7 times, then you probably have a problem with that control panel.

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having this problem with the tractor. First, make sure the engagement lever is down and the brake pedal is fully depressed or the tractor will not attempt to turn over. If you have already done this, I recommend checking the fuse. The fuse is located behind the dash. If the fuse is good, you have a wiring or switch problem. The easiest way to pin point the problem is with a volt meter. If you do not have a meter, you can purchase one relatively cheap.

Turn the meter to check dc volts, and then hold the black lead to the black negative battery terminal for all of the voltage checks. Place the red lead on the positive terminal of the battery. The reading should be 12 volts. If you have a 12 volt reading, move the red lead to the first blue dot in the image. Your reading should be 12 volts. If you have 12 volts, have someone sit on the tractor and hold the brake pedal while turning the key for the rest of the checks. While they have the key turned to the start position, move the red lead to the next blue dot. The reading should always be 12 volts. Then move to the next blue dot. If you lose the 12 volts, the problem is between the last blue dot you had the voltage and where you lost the voltage. If you have 12 volts all the way to the white wire on the solenoid, the solenoid or the starter is defective.

To determine starter or solenoid short the two large posts on the solenoid together with a screwdriver. There should be a spark it is normal. Once shorted the starter should run.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Hi Don, sorry you are still having a problem, you say it won't turn over, do you mean you cannot pull the starter line to make the engine turn over (is the engine locked up)
Or do you mean it still won't start when you pull the starter rope. If the latter is the case and you are getting a spark the kill switch is ok which leaves the fuel. Try spraying fuel (just a little) into the cylinder, put plug back in and try. If it runs or attempts to run you may have to rebuild the carburetor. (Be sure the shut off valve is in the on position.)

Hold your finger over the spark plug hole and pull the starter rope. When the engine turns over the compression should force air past your finger. If the engine does not force air out part your finger there is an internal engine problem.

If you need further assistance, please reply below with more details.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the tractor. Here are the basic checks to make on a mower that will not start.

You need to determine if the problem is no fuel, no compression, or no spark. Remove the spark plug and hold your finger or thumb on the hole the spark plug screws in. Have someone pull the starter rope and the compression should push your finger off the spark plug hole. This will tell you the valves are operating inside the engine and you have compression. Pour a thimble full of fuel into the hole the spark plug came out of. Quickly install the spark plug and pull the starter rope or engage the starter. The engine should try to start. This would tell you there is a spark and the engine will run if you get fuel. If the engine doesn't try to start, pour another thimble full of fuel into the cylinder. Look at the anode of the spark plug and see if it is wet. Try to start the engine again. If it still doesn't try to start, remove the spark plug and connect the ignition wire to the spark plug. Hold the bottom of the spark plug to a clean area on the engine block. Use insulated pliers or gloves to hold the spark plug to prevent shock. Get someone to pull the starter rope or engage the starter and see if you get a blue spark from the anode of the spark plug to the base of the plug. If there is no spark the ignition module on the engine is bad. If you have spark the problem is in the fuel supply. Did you run the engine after draining the fuel to burn the fuel out of the carburetor? If not the carburetor will be clogged with the remnants of the old fuel and need to be replaced. If you ran the fuel out of the carburetor, the diaphragm or float is probably just dry and not flexing. You should take the carburetor apart and clean and soak the diaphragm with fuel or clean the float, needle, and seat.

Please reply below with the details of what you found doing these check. I will be happy to assist you.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website:

electric start won't start

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the electric start on the mower. If the starter motor will not make any noise at all, I recommend checking the electrical connections on the harness. If they look ok, find the inline fuse. The fuse is usually located on the right side near the bottom of the handle. If the fuse is blown, go ahead, replace it, and check the operation. If the starter still will not engage I recommend taking the mower in for service. This mower has a two-year warranty that covers manufacturer defects. Here is a link that will provide the nearest drop-off locations:

Sears Home Services

.

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance on the mower.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Thanks for replying with the model of the snow thrower. To confirm your thought that the primer might be the problem, you can remove the spark plug and put about a tablespoon of gas in the cylinder. If this makes the engine start or try to start, the primer bulb is the problem.

Your snowthrower has a 2 year warranty. I suggest you take the snow thrower to a Sears Repair Center for repair.

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the pressure washer. First, make sure the gas in the fuel tank is fresh and is not ethanol. If the fuel is fresh, it might need a high altitude kit. I recommend taking the presser washer to one of our drop off locations to have the pressure washer serviced. Here is a link that will provide the nearest drop-off locations:

Please let me know if you need further assistance.
