Question about Kenmore Dishwashers
The Control Lock randomly turns on and disables washer from running. Holding down the Air Dry option key for four seconds as instructed has no effect. When this doesn't happen, the dishwasher works fine.

Your problem is: The Control Lock randomly turns on and disables washer from running. Holding down the Air Dry option key for four seconds as instructed has no effect. When this doesn't happen, the dishwasher works fine.
When a d/w has this kind of random problem it means either a bad control board or a loose connection on the control board. I don't recomend this kind of repair to the average homeowner. You could try the Repair Directory for a repairman. Also, if the d/w has a few years on it you you might want to consider the costs or repair verses replacement. The randomness of the problem makes it frustrating to run down.

Unlock your Kenmore dishwasher control panel by pressing and holding the "Heated Dry" button for four seconds.
Press a series of four buttons in quick succession. Press "Heated Dry," "Normal Wash," "Heated Dry" and "Normal Wash" to instruct your Kenmore dishwasher to run a short diagnostic test.
Wait for two minutes while your Kenmore dishwasher runs its diagnostic test.
Press the "Cancel/Drain" button once your dishwasher has completed its diagnostic test. This should reset your dishwasher control panel and stop the "Clean" light from blinking repeatedly.
Hope this will be of help to you
Have an awesome day
