Dishwasher will not start. The last time it ran a full cycle but did not drain all the water out. When I started again it ran but still did not drain all the water. Now it will not start at all. The green LED lights come on excluding the start LED. The Led lights stay on for several seconds and then turn off.I replaced the ribbon cable and the door switch and that did not fix the problem. What do you think the problem is? Thanks

ANSWER Hi Vernon. DISHWASHER : Flashing green light means the heating circuit or the drain circuit/hose has an issue. Ohm out the heater to see if it has continuity and not open. Make sure all wires are connected tight and not bad.Heater part # 8194200.The thermistor part # 8269208 will tell the board if the heater has to be initially used to increase wash temperature to at least 120°. Are you running the sink water hot while loading the dishwasher? Is the water heater set to at least 120°? Is the drain pump clogged or inoperative part # 661658? Make sure the drain hose is not clogged at the sink or the sink clogged. Use the lower kick panel tech. sheet or behind the control panel. There is a tech.sheet to aid in a field service test to aid after you have checked these issues. Make sure the door neutral and line switches are working properly. Let us know if we can assist further. Thank You.
