Ran the dishwasher on smartwash with sanitize only. When done, has complete with sanitize flashing. The error codes were F-E- showing with Normal Cycle and 1 hour wash. After that, normal wash was lit and Turbo-heat Dry was lit. (lights under those selections) Water temp at the faucet is 135 degrees.

Hi Steve,

Please update your thread here first:

That may help us determine the issue now.

Thanks for updating it.

I don't have the tech. data sheet for this model, I will ask our tech bigbuck if he does to get to this new problem of Sanitize flashing when done.

I don't see F-E- either.

I'm attaching your tech data sheet below that bigbuck gave me.

Page 12--->Sanitized LED Blinks or Incomplete Sanitization Message at End of Cycle (Control Could Not Confirm Sanitization Achieved)

Do all the checks it says to do there.

went through the checks and found one concern. The heating element connected at bu/wh and bu/rd shows 11 ohms. Sounds low to me.

Don't want to declare victory yet, but i ran the dishwasher yesterday on Smart wash with Sanitize on and it ended with Sanitize and Complete solid (no flashing). It has done this before. All I did was to open the door access and unplug the heater to do a continuity test (two plugs 4 wires pulled) and reconnected both, then close it all up.
