Pots/pan light blinks alternately with the normal wash button. Sometimes the cycle will start and then the lights come on. Once they start blinking, the cycle stops and I can't get it to start again. Unplugging it for a few days has worked a few times. But it just keeps getting more frequent. If it does start up, it heats fine and washes perfectly.

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.
