    Default FIXED: Samsung Dishwasher DW80F600UTS heavy/delicate light blinking

    Model Number: DW80F600UTS
    Brand: Samsung
    Age: 1-5 years

    Recently bought a house that has all Samsung appliances. The appliances were purchased within the last 3 years. The Dishwasher has a heavy/delicate light blinking after 15 mins of use. There is a large puddle of soap water at the bottom of the dishwasher. It starts back up if I hit the power button and it will start back on if I click it again. It also drains the fluid if I click power, then hit power again to turn it back on and hold the drain for 3 seconds. It just keeps turning off and I am left with a puddle and the blinking heavy/delicate lights.

    Thanks for any help,

    P.S. Had a few, so I can see that the statement is not very clear. It shuts off after 15 mins. When I open the lid, there is a heavy and delicate light blinking simultaneously. There is also a puddle inside the dishwasher, nothing leaking to the outside. If I click power, it shuts down, then I click it again and it is ready for use. It will drain the fluid at the bottom of the dishwasher. When I try to start it again, runs for about 15 minutes and the lights blink again.

    Hi,

    That heavy and delicate light blinking is a heater error, Rick and I tried to help another member with this problem here: Samsung DW80F600UTS Heavy + Delicate error, heater keeps burning out

    But with no success, unfortunately. But you can follow everything we say to do, you may get yours going again. Possibly that guy in that thread missed something.

    Default Checking heater

    Thanks for the reply. How do you check the heating element? I have an ohm reader. Looking for an open circuit? $100 for a part, seems expensive for an appliance that is $480 brand new. I want to make sure that this really is the problem.

    Ok,

    Watch this video to ohm test it: Heating Element Testing Video

    Here's the heating element for your model below, there is also a video in the heating element part link that shows you how to access it. Make sure the breaker is off to your dishwasher first before accessing and ohm testing it.
