In reference to your Kenmore dishwasher, model 665.17039402

Problem

: Stopped running, will not start and clean led blinks 7 times, then repeats

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

Clean 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's not corrected though, the control will stop running again on next cycle. See below

Heater circuit problem

:

Open in heater

Open connection or component in heater circuit

Faulty heater drive circuit on control

Check

:

Unplug dishwasher

Check all components and connections in the water heating circuit or heat dry circuit

Check resistance of heater

Check resistances of all connections and components between the control and heater

Check operation of heater and temperature sensor in diagnostic cycle
