If your Samsung dishwasher does not have a digital display, it is going to showcase information codes via its lights. Different combinations of dishwasher lights give other information codes. Fortunately, these information codes usually only need minimal adjustments to get rid of them.
Overview – Normal light blinking
Probably, Normal light flashes as a part of some combinations of information codes. A blinking Normal light signifies your dishwasher’s leak sensor detects moisture, or there is not enough water in your machine. But, a flashing Normal light in conjunction with other lights is going to signal a stuck button, short-circuited thermistor or hot water.
Samsung Dishwasher Normal Light Blinking – How to fix it?
Is the Dishwasher normal light blinking by itself or along with other lights? If the Dishwasher normal light is flashing by itself, it means that your dishwasher’s leak sensor detects moisture. The dishwasher is going to turn on while this code is present and not turn itself off.
- Find out the Potential Leak
As a result of the leak, the dishwasher is going to try to drain away excess water. If you really see a leak, you are able to run a cycle to locate the leak. After you find the leak, please turn the dishwasher off at the circuit breaker.
- Inspect the Seals and Hoses
You have to search for moisture by checking the water supply hose, the rubber seal and the drain hose.
- Make sure dishwasher is level
If your dishwasher is not level, this is able to cause it to leak as well. Water will be able to pool at the front and spill out of the door.
- Loosen the Cabinet Screws
If the cabinet screws of the dishwasher are too tight, this will be able to cause gaps in the dishwasher. Remember that the opening should be 22 inches across. You have to loosen the screws to decrease gaps and prevent further leaks.
- Inspect the Water Nozzles
If the dishwasher’s nozzles have food stuck inside, this is going to force the water to spray at the dishwasher door. This will be able to push through the seal and make a leak.
What do you do if there is no leak?
- If there is no identifiable leak, some other things are able to cause this information code. If you have run or moved the dishwasher, water will have splashed the sensor. Just allow it time to dry.
- If the garbage disposal is connected to the dishwasher, you have to make sure that you remove the disposal cap. Also, you have to make sure not to overfill the dishwasher with detergent.
Dishwasher information codes which include the Normal Light
There are many combinations of dishwasher information codes which include the blinking Normal light. So, if your dishwasher’s Normal light is flashing along with other lights, it will be able to mean various things.
Auto, Normal, and Express 60 Lights
If these lights are blinking, it means that a button is stuck. To solve the stuck button, you have to turn the dishwasher off completely. After that, touch all of the buttons on the panel. Then, turn the dishwasher back on. If the dishwasher information code returns after turning your dishwasher back on, you should contact the Samsung Support Center for more assistance.
Auto and Normal Lights
Another possible dishwasher information code that your dishwasher may display is the Auto and Normal lights. This dishwasher information code means that your dishwasher is operating with water which is too hot. To solve this dishwasher information code, you have to empty your dishwasher of all dishes. After that, you have to add dishwasher detergent to the dishwasher and then let it run on a normal cycle. If doing this does not solve the error, you are able to turn the dishwasher’s power off at the circuit breaker. Or contact a repairman to fix the issue.
Normal, Delicate, and Quick Lights
The combination of Normal, Delicate, and Quick lights is another dishwasher information code. Also, this information code indicates that your dishwasher is using water which is too hot. Make sure that the water supply going into your dishwasher is not more than 176 F. If so, you have to lower the temperature of the water your dishwasher is using. But, if the water is not too hot and the dishwasher information code still happens, this will need a repairman to fix it.
Normal, Delicate, and Smart Auto Lights
Also, this information code indicates hot water usage in the dishwasher. As with the Normal, Delicate, and Quick lights dishwasher information code, you have to check that the water is not more than 176 degrees. If the water is too hot, you have to lower the temperature. If the water is the right temperature and the information code remains, please contact a repairman.
Normal and Delicate Lights
Another dishwasher information code which will occur on your dishwasher is blinking Normal and Delicate lights. This dishwasher information code once again signifies that a button is stuck. As with the Auto, Normal, and Express 60 information code, you have to turn your dishwasher off completely. Then, touch all the panel’s buttons. Next, turn the dishwasher back on. If the dishwasher information code returns after you have turned the dishwasher back on, you should contact a repairman.
Normal, Heavy, and Express 60 Lights
This dishwasher information code signifies that the dishwasher’s thermistor has short-circuited. If your thermistor has short-circuited, you have to replace the thermistor or the dishwasher entirely. This will need a repairman.
Normal, Heavy, and Quick Lights
Another dishwasher information code is the combination of blinking Normal, Heavy, and Quick lights. This code showcases that the dishwasher is not using enough water.

If this does not help, you have to check if the water supply valve is closed or the supply is suspended. Also, the water inlet valve could be frozen or clogged. If so, you have to turn the power off at the circuit breaker and close the water supply valve. Please contact a repairman for further assistance.
