Brand new 16254- blinking LED, nothing happened

I just got the Kenmore 16254 from sears, after hooked everything, and checked everything on the list without no problem. After I plug in the power, only Hi-Temp & Heat Only LEDs flashing/ blinking, and nothing happened when I press any other options, Start/Cacel. Only thing I can stop blinking is either open the door or unplug the power. The plumber guy said it is the dishwasher problem. I search Internet, no one had same problem that I have so far, any suggestions about this problem or suggestions about the dishwasher? Thanks!! LW

Temprary solution is to press both Hi-Temp and Strart. The washer will go through test cycles and finish. The next time it will work fine. This is a intermittent problem. No final solution yet.

Brand new kenmore elite dishwasher won't start, does nothing.

May be a wire off motor compacitor. You can't see it from the front. The compacitor is facing the back of the dishwasher. You may have to un-install it to check or use a mirror and flashlight. It's located behind the motor on the left side looking from the front of the machine.

Nothing is happening

I used the eternal last resort: Banging repeatedly on the control panel!

If the display works, but the machine doesn't fill, wash, or pump out, the control board is the only component that could cause all these symptoms.

Thanks Munkee,
I started having this problem, blinking green light,  three days ago with my Kenmore QG3 and finally was tired of not being able to use my dishwasher.

On another website, we found a reset code that works for our Kenmore, which I think is the same as yours. Hit Heated Dry, Normal Wash, Heated Dry, Normal Wash (one at a time, within six seconds).
