Unit wouldn't work. "clean" light blinking

The unit had power, but the controls would not work. The "Clean" light was blinking. I first replaced the control unit, no help. I then used the "Just Ask" and was told the problem was the heating element and/or the Hi-Temp thermostat. I replaced both those and used the re-set code pushing the "Hi-Temp/Air Dry, Hi-Temp/Air Dry" buttons. That did it. Easy parts to locate and replace. It took longer pulling the unit out and putting it back than it did to replace the parts.

Dishes wouldn't dry

I shut off the power to the dishwasher, then I removed the front panel under the door. On the right side just behind the electrical box there are two wires going up to the hi-limit thermostat, (you may need a small mirror to see it), remove one screw that is holding the thermostat bracket, unplug the wires from the old thermostat and install new one. Screw bracket and thermostat back to the underside of the dishwasher, reinstall the front panel, turn on the power, done.
