Kenmore Dishwasher Model 665.15812 "Lock" light

\015 "Lock" light is on. Will go off very briefly after pushing the "No Heat Dry" button, but comes back on within seconds. Can only select the "Normal" cycle, too. "Cancel" button works intermittently. Cannot get diagnostic to run by alternating "No Heat Dry" and "Water Heat" buttons. Have cycled AC power several times...nothing works. Any ideas before we replace the whole dishwasher?\015

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.
