Cancel Light Flashing on Kitchen Aid Dishwasher
I found this post elsewhere. It seems to have worked for me:
Our KitchenAid KUDP series dishwasher went into a mode where it would
not start and would only respond to the cancel/drain button. The clean
light would flash 7 times in a row, stop, and then repeat. I read that
the 7 flashes indicates an error code and that the dishwasher has
detected a problem in the heater element circuit. I tried to reset the
error mode by turning off power for 15 minutes, however, that did not
called for a repair. The service person found that the dishwasher was
completely fine except that it had gone into an error mode. The
technician reset the error mode and charge us $115.00.
The reset sequence used was reported to be the following:
1) Crack the door open.
2) Within 3 seconds press the following sequence - Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry, Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry
3) Close and latch the door
4) Press the cancel button (the circle with the triangle in it)
were told the dishwasher expects to see the dish water temperature rise
in a certain way. If the water does not heat in this way, the
dishwasher becomes confused and thinks the heater element has failed.
In deed, this happened just following and extended power failure and
our hot water tank was cool. I am curious if this code will work for
anybody else with the same problem and save a service call and 115
bucks. Overall, this seems to be a serious logic flaw in the design.
