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.

I had a similar problem. Some touchpad controls worked (e.g. the Cancel/Drain button), but some did not (the Quick Rinse and Start buttons). I also have the Kenmore Elite Dishwasher (model 665.17282401), which is only 3.5 years old.
I removed the Console Assembly. I searched the internet to look for a source for replacement parts and found on FixYa a special keystroke sequence which is supposed to reset the electronic controls. I put back the Console Assembly, entered the reset sequence, then magically the Start button (an all other buttons) were working again.
I don't know if this was due to the reset or due to cleaning and re-installing the Console Assembly.
