Dishwasher's "Pot-n-Pans" light flashing

My Kenmore 16009 type 280-2 has lost its mind. The "pot-n-pans" led flashes. Nothing I try will start the dishwasher. My wife tells me that the unit lost power, but when power came back she pushed the start/resume button and the dishwasher finsihed washing the dishes. She stated that the next day she noticed the light flashing. I cut off the breaker for several hours. As soon as I restored power the light began flashing again. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

    The tech sheet was there, but the diagnostice sequence involved buttons that were not on the dishwasher's display, like an Air Dry button. Other than that there was a lot of info about the wiring, but nothing that helped me put the dishwaher in test mode. Thank you.

Ga, behind the toe panel on the bottom there should be a tech sheet explaining how to put the dishwasher in the test mode. See if you can enter the test mode. If you can't, you probably have a stuck or shorted keypad. Catriver...post back

Go to your circuit breaker panel and turn off the circuit that feeds you dishwasher. Leave it off for three minutes. This will reset the program and should solve your problem.

there is no real way of checking the keypad. Not with a meter but if you push normal wash for example and it does not respond this usually means that you have a bad keypad

Try this solution first
Push the Hi-temp and then push the Sani-rinse. Go back and forth multiple times on these two buttons. I found that after a handfull of pushes that a "1" came up on the display. I continued to keep rotating the two buttons and then a "2" came up on the display and the dishwater started it's "drain" phase. I then hit cancel to clear and then I selected the cycle I wanted. The washer started up just as normal at this point.

Quick Rinsw button blinking


I may have fixed my similar problem- I opened up the machine to get access to the control panel as tech17 advised- then in addition to disconnecting the mylar ribbon, I disconnected all the connections to the control panel.... keep in mind to ensure not to confuse any of the connectors you disconnect. Running a cycle at this time... seems as if working.. can't tell if water is running or just the motor- -- HA! -- i confirmed no water being pumped in.... We then found a float switch (Item 30 on schematic) that got loose from its casing on the front interior right lower side... we put that switch into its proper place and now ALL IS WELL!!!! Yippee!!!

Dishwasher will not start..we've had it about 3 to 4 years


Some of these units have a thermal fuse in line with and mounted on the control card. This will need to be checked. Also check the door switches. Some models will aloow power to the control card but to nothing else.
