I have a Kenmore Elite 665 series dish washer with the clean light blinking. It blinks 7 times. I have reset it it with the normal wash-heated dry buttons several times. After a reset it goes through some steps and I believe no light comes on at all. But when iI try to wash a load afterwards with the normal cycle the green light starts to blink each time when it is well into the cycle. The heater element shows 13 ohm. I have reseated the connections to the heater and they looked fine to begin with. I have reseated the connections to the thermistor ( temp sensor). I also reseated the strip to the control panel. The dishwasher gets water and the water is sprayed by the arms. The door latch switches seem to be fine ( I manually moved them), but I can not check if they actually work when the door is closed. Float is not stuck open. HELP!
Any suggestions on what to do next?
Can I safely check if the heater element actually heats up?
Can I safely check if there is power to the heater element during the cycle?
Could it be the control board? Can I test the control board?
Where do I find a tech sheet online? model 665.16262400
Any suggestion or any answer would be greatly appreciated.
