Many modern dishwashers have electronic controls that notify you when there is a problem. Your dishwasher may have blinking lights or beeping sounds. At times your dishwasher may need to be reset. No matter what brand of dishwasher you have, it may at times, audibly beep noises and blink the lights. This is to tell you that your dishwasher needs a reset or may mean a part needs replaced or checked.
With most dishwashers different sounds and blinking lights will mean different problems. Depending on what brand dishwasher you have, the issue may need to be researched. If you have your dishwasher manual it is best to refer to it first. Your dishwasher manual will explain what the different blinking and flashing lights mean. It will also tell you what the beeping noises may signify.
The flashing lights and the beeping sounds for most dishwashers mean:
Blinking or Flashing of the Start and or Reset light or button:
This may mean the dishwasher is in the “turning off mode”. Depending on the type of model dishwasher you have… The light may flash from 60 to 90 seconds. If this happens, simply wait up to 120 seconds and see if the dishwasher resets and resumes to normal. Once the dishwasher stops flashing or blinking, try and start a wash cycle to see if it will wash with no problems.
Dishwasher beeps every 30 seconds:
This will indicate that the dishwasher door was opened during a wash cycle. If the door is unlatched or opened during any wash or rinse cycle, the dishwasher will sound a beeping sound every 30 seconds. To remedy this issue, simply close the dishwasher door and let the dishwasher resume its wash cycle.
If the above blinking lights and beeping sounds do not apply to your dishwasher:
Flashing lights and or beep sounds can mean the dishwasher problem was from a power surge or power outage. You can unplug the dishwasher from power or shut off the breaker to the dishwasher for 1 minute. This may reset the dishwasher and get it back to working order. If the reset does not work after removing power from the dishwasher, then the next thing to try is to press the Start or Reset button to reset the dishwasher. Press for about 10 seconds. Then wait about 2 to 3 minutes and see if that did not reset the dishwasher.
