Kenmore dishwasher Lock On light flashing

\015 Kenmore Dishwasher\015\012665.15819990\015\012 \015\012My dishwasher control panel is locked out. Holding the lock button for 4 seconds does not clear the lock. I have turned off the power multiple times (once for 24 hours). The tech sheet is not in the dishwasher.\015\012 \015\012The current symptoms are:\015\012The Lock On light is flashing about 1/second. Pressing Cancel/Drain causes that light to flash too. Opening and closing the door clears the Cancel/Drain light. Sometimes the pushing the Cancel/Drain button will start the pump. While the pump is running, the Lock On light flashes 3 times (quickly), pauses, flashes 3 times, etc.\015\012 \015\012Once I was able to get the cycle to start. The dishwasher started filling, then the lock light started to flash canceling the fill. The lock light went off and the dishwasher resumed filling. This happened several times so I cancelled the cycle. This was also interrupted several times.\015\012 \015\012Is the flashing light a trouble code?\015\012Is there a sequence of key presses to reset the dishwasher?\015\012How do I determine what component has failed?\015\012 \015\012Thanks!\015

Answers :

Holding the button for four seconds will not do it, you have to hold it until the light stops blinking and
\015\012will go back to normal, normall takes more than four seconds to unlock the unit, this is something
\015\012the sears repair techs know becouse the are trained on all this things but, they will not share this things, becouse thats how they make money
I had the same problem.. I just held down the AIR DRY button and tried to push down the whirlpool logo (not sure if its a button but there's no LOCK button) Anywho that seemed to do the trick. The light stopped flashing and then I just hit normal wash. Now its working again! Thanks for all the tips!!

Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher Model 665.15779 LOCK ON light blinking on control panel, unable to use washer. If buttons were locked, LOCK ON light should be lit continually not flashing. If you press and hold NO HEAT DRY button to disengage lock, nothing happens. If you press the CANCEL button it begins to blink in unison with the LOCK ON light. How can I stop the light from blinking to allow button function again?

My kenmore dishwasher, model 665.16473300 has stopped working. Now the lights just flash at the Smart Wash, Normal Wash, and Cancel. I've reset the power and it just comes back. I've taken the drain area apart and made sure there are no obstructions. The buttons seem to respond, as after I reset the unit (breaker), only the Smartwash button is flashing. I push cancel and then it starts flashing. So I think the buttons work, but it's locked up.

Dishwasher: Kenmore ultra wash sensor quiet guard plus. I'm in a rental so I don't have the manual or model number. A few days ago it just wouldn't start the wash cycle. When you press normal wash then start the no heat dry and lock lights flash every other second or so but nothing happens. I can hit the cancel button and it will make sounds like its trying to drain, and after about 5 minutes stops. I've done the heated wash/ no heat dry sequence to try to reset but no luck.

I have a Kenmore Elite dishwasher (model 665.1315), and the dishwasher will run through the wash cycle as expected, but when it gets to the heated dry cycle , it doesn't appear to dry.
