Having problems with your Kenmore Dishwashers ?

Kenmore Elite 665.13413k701 lights flashing, not working

\015 I bought my house a year ago and it was remodeled. The dishwasher appeared to be new, but never worked. We haven't gotten around to fixing it until now. On the front panel, the "smartwash" and "pots and pans" lights blink together followed by "normal" blink in very rapid succession. I'm hoping this is an easy "Reset" type fix, but the the other answers online didn't work. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!\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.
