The clean LED blinks 7 times and the dishwasher ceases to operate.
This condition can also apply to a dishwasher that has had the electronic control replaced.
A heater fault detection program has been added to the electronic control to monitor the operation of the heater. If a temperature rise in the water is not detected during the first 8 minutes of the beginning of the main wash, the dishwasher will shut down.
A fault will be indicated if:
A 2Â°F increase in the water temperature is not obtained (inlet water temp greater than 90Â°F) or
A 4Â°F increase in the water temperature is not obtained (inlet water temp less than 90Â°F).
If the correct temperature rise is not detected, the dishwasher will drain and blink the clean light
7 times to signal to call for service. The detection will be ignored if the
temperature is out of its normal range 64 - 160Â° F or the door is opened during the first 8 minutes of the main wash. This is to prevent a false detection.
