My dishwasher program does not move from prewash to another wash cycle

You don't tell us anything about your dishwasher, such as model number and whether it has a simple turn-knob, or button controls. We really need a little more information to be able to help you.

All the panel lights glow after I reset (heated dry, normal, etc)?

Not sure what you mean by a temp restart only time lights should all be lit is if you placed the unit into diagnostic. Lets go one of two ways if you hit the normal wash button it lights along with heated dry you hit start button it flashes and won't go solid you have an open door switch, if everything is off and start light continues to flash you have a stuck key on the keypad.

Wont turn on is thier a reset button

OK I am not an expert but I have spent the last two weeks learning about and fixing my dishwasher! Hopefully I can save you a headache. Try the following:

* Try turning off the switch for a longer period of time - 10-15 minutes. This may reset your washer.
* If any of your button lights come on but a regular cycle will not start, try running diagnostic/reset cycles by pressing heated dry -normal- heated dry or heated dry-sanitize-heated dry in sequence. If the cycles run fine, you will rule out a power, latch, motor/drying issue. It also may (hopefully) reset your system.
* If your buttons do not light up or normal function still does not resume after the reset, make sure your power (from the breaker box) is turned off and unscrew (with a star-shaped screwdriver bit - check your car emergency kit/toolbox, you may find you have it) and open the front button control panel and check all connections. Try carefully unplugging and replugging wires and look for any corrosion/moisture on the circuit board.
* If that does not work, test the circuit board by unplugging the green ribbon cable from the control panel, reassembling with the ribbon cable unplugged, flipping your circuit back on and then closing the dishwasher door. If the drain motor runs, it will show you that there is power getting into the machine and that there is still some function with the circuit board. Although it doesn't rule out the circuit board completely, it will point to the possibility of a control (button) panel issue and you may try replacing that. If the drain test does NOT run, it may be the circuit board that needs to be replaced.

There may be some additional instructions specific to your model hidden in an envelope behind the kickplate of your washer.

Hopefully some of that helps!

I have a Bosch Exxcel washing machine which is great but it bleeps for ever and a day when the wash is finished. How do I silence the beeps without having to get up?

Switch machine on but do not program.
Press and hold PREWASH button.
After a few seconds it begins beeping.
Keep holding PREWASH button in until beep gets quiet
then eventually stops.
Hope this helps - Colin, Billericay Essex

Kenmore dishwasher ultra was quiet guard 3 model 56516012403 control panel will not activate red lights blinking on normal wash and cancel drain. did the hold the heat dry button then the normal wash...

that would be model # 66516012403 correct??
you may have inadvertently set the lock on function..
check this out from your manual...

Lock On
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,
