Kenmore 665 dishwasher

All I get is a flashing lock light . Is there a way to reset it? It is not lock. The light is blinking. Even pressing No Heat Dry for 6 seconds
does not work. When it has been open for a couple of minutes it is not blinking. If I press cancel it's starts blinking.
My model is 665.168.19990

I have no HiTemp wash or heated dry button but I have Water Heat and No Heat dry

Hi,

Initially, pls check if you have a "tech sheet" somewhere, most probably behind in the bottom/kick panel. There would be instructions on how to enter diagnostic mode. Thereafter the error code would be displayed and we can work from there on.

The 665 series has been known to have common issues with the electronic controller unit. Additionally, in some instances, it could just be the keypad. Again, the tech sheet would help you sort things out. This page might give you an idea on the keypad.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Try doing a full reset by unplugging it overnight and plugging it back up. It should work then by resetting the lock code. If that does not work, you may need to get the lock option checked for shorts or malfunctions by a professional.

Push the heated/dry button on the dishwasher for 4 seconds and that will unlock the dishwasher. This is just a safety feature that allows you to lock the dishwasher to stop kids from pushing buttons.

It sounds like the child lock is on. Is the light on when the door is closed and nothing is pressed? If so hold the lock button until the light turns off. If you do not have a lock button, try the heated dry button or consult the manual to find out which button toggles the child lock.
Good luck.

Kenmore 665 dishwasher blinking clean light


you'll need to enter a diagnostic mode, press in this order, hi-temp(sani-rinse)----heated dry--hitemp---heated dry... all lights should light, close door and let cycle for about a min, after press the cancelbutton, you should be good to go, the buttons on your model may read slighty different names, if this "toggle of buttons" does not work, you can remove thelower access panel and htere willl be a tech sheet/trouble shoooter behind the panel, in there it will explain how to enter diag/test mode
