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.

Locked out light is blinking. The only button that works is the cancel button,& then it also flashes. Tried the 4 second no dry button, with no help. Did not using it for 8 days lose the memorey, & cause this lock out?.

Control panel buttons don't work. Seem to be stuck in the "Lock On" mode. Can't turn off, and dishwasher won't run. When you open the door all lights go off, but as soon as you relatch the door, the "Lock On" light comes on, although sometimes it can be another light. In any case, it won't run.

I have a Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner III (Model GU1200XTKB0). I have used it previously on "Normal" cycle and I always keep it on Air Dry. Last night I used the "Pots and Pans" cycle and it seemed to work fine. But this morning the Air Dry light is flashing and if I press a cycle key the Rinse Only light starts to flash as well. Nothing works. I have made sure that the console is not locked. Any suggestions? I do not have a Heated Dry button, only Air Dry. Thank you.

Whirlpool dishwasher model GU2-400-XTB7 Problem started with display cycling through delay times. (1 hr, 2hr, 3 hr and so on.) Was able to cancel that for short periods and then it would repeat the cycle. Was able to run dishwasher by pressing different buttons. Then it would start a cycle but did not run full cycle. Now control panel doesn't work at all. When buttons are pushed, lights do not light up and nothing happens. Is stuck in lock mode.

Kenmore Ultra Wash Model 665 - 158* Front panel not working properly. Pressing Normal does not light that option. The only option that lights is "Quick Rinse", pressing this lights that option and also the "No Heat Dry" light. After a few seconds the lock light comes on. Looks to me that the "No Dry Heat" button is stuck on, which causes all the other things to happen Is there a way to fix this?

I have a Whirlpool Gold Model GU2700XTSBO its only 4 years old. About two weeks ago i noticed that the green lights were flashing and it would not run, I unpluged it for an hour and pluged it back in and the lights went away and it worked ok for the last two weeks. Last night I went to use it and there is no power at all to the washer, I checked the power source to the outlet and there is power there, so I dont know if there is a reset button or some control panel problem?
