Question about Kenmore Dishwashers
We used the dishwasher two days ago just fine, went to turn it on tonight and none of the buttons on the control panel will light up or start.
Check the breaker in your breaker box, it may have tripped. Reset it and run the dishwasher. If it trips again, have the dishwasher looked at by a professional service person.

that would be model # 66516012403 correct??
you may have inadvertently set the lock on function..
check this out from your manual...
Use the Lock On to prevent unintended use of the dishwasher
between cycles. You can also use the lock feature to prevent
unintended cycle or option changes during a cycle.
When LOCK ON is lit, all buttons are disabled.
NOTE: The dishwasher door can be opened while the controls
are locked. However, the lock must be turned off and the Start/
Resume button pressed to resume the cycle.
To turn on the Lock
Press and hold HEATED DRY for 4 seconds. LOCK ON glows.
If you press any pad while your dishwasher is locked, the light
flashes 3 times.
NOTE: If the Heated Dry option is selected, the light will
temporarily turn off until Lock On glows.
To turn off the Lock
Press and hold HEATED DRY for 4 seconds. The light turns off.
hope this helps,
best of luck,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.
Your question is: You have an older model Kenmore ultra wash dishwasher model #15805890. The control lock light is flashing. No buttons are working. The dishwasher does not turn on. Any solutions?
Sure! Someone must have activated the lock. It is next to either the 'air dry' or 'heated dry' button.
Press and hold that button till the lock light goes out. About 6 seconds. That's it. It turns on the same way.
Feel free contact me again!

I have a Kenmore Elite model 665.15962990. I have had it for 8 years.
A few days ago the touch panel seemed to go dead and so did the LED.
After pushing the buttons several times the motor kicked on, but the
washer behaved strangely. The LED displayed what looked like Klingon.
After looking through the Repair Parts Lists with its exploded view of the washer components, I narrowed the problem down to either the power module (part # 9744031), the console assembly which includes the button touchpad (part # [white = 3384101], [bisque = 3384150], [black = 3384100]), or the dual light display a.k.a. LED (part # 3383825).
I took the washer apart because I was told I can't return the power module and it costs roughly $150 at my local appliance repair shop. In looking at everything, the power module is the most likely candidate. The LED is a separate unit and is powered by the power module. The buttons are the same way. Since both of those separate components are behaving strangely, my best guess is the power module is not powering either of them correctly.
Also I found this link: http://www.askmehelpdesk.com/appliances/kenmore-dishwasher-not-working-all-27100.html
I hope this helps someone.

1. Check plug outlet.
2. Check electrical box underneath the d/w where power cord connected to d/w (you have to take the kick panel off . The box located on right side). Sometime you can find burn wire there.
3. Check the thermal fuse on computer board. It is inside the control panel on right hand side. The fuse has 2 white plastic connector which sticks out, easy to find.

most likely you have a bad motor when replacing the motor ihave found it is cheaper to get the pump with the motor attached where as they charge you more money for just the motor or the pump seprately try allbrands appliance parts they seem to be cheaper
