My dishwasher did the same thing. The repair guy fixed it and told us how to reset next time it happens: press: Hi temp then Energy saver then Hi Temp then Energy saver do this quickly over 5 seconds all the lights should come on Then,turn off the breaker for one minute then, go back to the dishwasher and press cancel. All the lights should turn off. Start dishwasher as usual. If the cause was just a brain fart, the dishwasher should work.

Ok, Turn breaker off at breaker panel. Just off then on. The rinse only light should be on.....not flashing. Now press the start button first and hold; then press the cancel button. That should cancel all lights. Then press wash button then start. If the light is still flashing after you turn off breaker....you might have a bigger problem. May need new control panel.

Check the door switch, it could be a loose wire or broken door latch switch.

I have an older dishwasher also and recently my wife also complained about it not cleaning right... so me being the man I am tried in vain to clean the things... Bought new spray arms online and installed them in minutes...now the thing works like new... However I have also found that if the heating element goes bad then that also can mess things up bad... So I would buy new spray arms, and also check out the heating element to make sure it is working... Here is a tip that will help you with the online buying...

Is the light flashing 7 times then pause then flashing 7 times? or run only while the button is held, or sometimes run intermittently on its own.

Let me know,so that we could proceed.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

You have to touch certain of the front panel touchbuttons in a certain pre-specified order. This sequence will cause the built in computer to initiate a "Diagnostic Mode", the repairman will step quickly through all the cycles at 1-2 minute intervals so that he doesn't waist his time. At the end of the diagnostic steps the computer will revert back to normal mode. You will need the "controls and cycles diagnostic sheet for repairman" map-sheet to be able to do the above, this sheet was with the machine when you first bought it.
I suspect the computer in your machine is stuck in the "Diagnostic mode" and is not getting out of it.
