    what is that symbol, does/did it make noises, is it new to you or have you used it before, where did you get it and was it dropped or banged around a lot?

The switch that tells the unit that the door is shut is probably bad. That will prevent the dw from running. murf427

SOURCE: lock on light flashing. Dishwasher will not do

Hi

This is a child lock feature to stop unwanted operation of the buttons. The usual way to cancel this on a Kenmore machine is to press and hold the "No heat dry" button for longer than 4 seconds. This should cancel the lock and resume normal function.

Hope this helps. Please do rate this answer. Thanks.

Key stuck on


Your description of the problem is a little vague.... What light(s) stay on? What light(s) flash? Is there a pattern to the flashing lights, in other words, does it blink so many times, then pauses, and repeats? Ir does it just blink steadily, continuously? And how about a model number or approximate age of your dishwasher?

Some lights are flushing and the dishwasher does


Hi,

If the clean light is flashing it is an indication of the water not heating up. I have attached a link to a sheet explaining what might be causing it and how to reset the control so you can use the dishwasher again.

Clean light flashing

If other lights than the clean light are flashing that is an indication there is a short circuit in the keypad control and that part would need replaced. Let me know if you need details on replacing that. If so I would need the complete model number from the tag on the dishwasher just inside the door.

The "clean" button is flashing & none of the other cycles work.


heated dry and high temp wash
toggle till all the lights light up
then hit cancel
you should be able to turn dishwasher back on
you probably have a bad heater
is it flashing 7 times
take kick panel off and look to the rear of the dishwasher
is anything burned
if the clean light keeps blinking replace your heater

Dishwasher not draining and 3 lights are flashing


check this thread for starters http://www.fixya.com/support/t135923-dishwasher_beeping the solution to the leak would depend on where you think it is leaking from - usual areas to check are the door seal, door latch, inlet and drain hoses and where they connect, the base especially towards the back. also make sure the drain pipe the dishwasher is connected to is not blocked - sometimes leaks from in the machine can be traced to this cause. Hope this helps, post again if you find anything and hopefully we can help more :)
