If it has a hot and cold fill, that is ambient hot water supply, before the hot water comes from your home hot tank. Your element may have failed. There is a thermostat adjustment to increase wash and rinse temperatures. They are located under the bottom cover, or sometimes under the top lid. Wash should be about 170, rinse about 190.

A/C units have a design temperature of 90F. Now when the temperature is above 90F they start to have trouble keeping up. Depending on how well your unit is sized for the house, you will notice when the temp is over 90F. I don't know if who ever looked at your unit checked the refrigerant pressures since you said he checked the temps but I assume he did, however, it could possibly need charging.

Clean light is blinking and cannot use dishwasher


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If the green/clean light flashes, pauses, and then repeats. When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (clean light flashes, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.

To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...
