Kenmore Dishwasher 665.17979301 - Reset Sequence?

Hi, My Kenmore Dishwaser 665.17979301 will not start. The cancel/drain button is the only thing that is working and it makes a noise as if trying to do something but that can't be good. I few years back it would not start and I tried a reset sequence that I found online and that worked but I can't find it again. Would appreciate if you know it or can tell who I can get it from. I can't find anything in my manual. Thanks. Sue

    Yeah, I have a similar problem. I tried pushing the Sani-Rinse and Air Dry buttons back and forth a number of times. Didn't help.
    At first I thought the lock-on had accidently been engaged, but disengaging the "child lock" doesn't help. The lock-on light comes back on and sometimes blinks rapidly. I"ve counted around 7 rapid blinks at times and 3 rapid blinks at other times--in case that makes a difference. The control panel doesn't work--in other words, the dishwasher does not start, even when I can successfully get other lights to come on. I don't want to spend >$100. for a new control panel if that is not really the problem.

I knew it was a sequence too, but wasn't for sure what it was...but, I pushed the water heat button, then the no dry heat button, 2 times, ..then..ALL of the buttons lit up...I pushed cancel. Let is sit for a bit, pushed the normal wash button, and then, the dishwasher worked great thru all its cycles. Mine is a sears kenmore ultrawash with quiet guard system...around 10 years old.

SOURCE: Kenmore Dishwasher won't drain

If you opened and closed the door and it started, that sounds like a bad, door switch in the console.

But you did hear a hum sound when it tryed to drain, it could be the drain solenoid, or the motor/pump assembly.

Take off the bottom access and look at the solenoid when it starts to drain, the piston in the solenoid should move freely, up and down with the white drain flapper that it connects to.

Also check for bad wiring connections at the power junction box where the power hooks up to it under the dishwasher, i have seen the wire nuts either come loose or burn off due to loose connections.

The cancel light is on because the cycle maybe paused or canceled. The lit red button should say Cancel/Drain. If you already tried to press start and if it won't finish the cycle then try pressing the Cancel/Drain to drain and start over.

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.

Kenmore dishwasher Lock On light flashing


holding the button for four seconds will not do it, you have to hold it until the light stops blinking and
will go back to normal, normall takes more than four seconds to unlock the unit, this is something
the sears repair techs know becouse the are trained on all this things but, they will not share this things, becouse thats how they make money
