Dishwasher won't work

There is power. Only certain buttons on control pad will work. Will only come on when you hit cancel/drain. Almost like control panel is locked.

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).

SOURCE: Kenmore Ultrawash QuietGuard 3 Dishwasher not draining or rinsing

Not draining may either need new drain motor. or something is blocking the drain pipe.

Spots on dishes means you are using to much detergent or the wrong kind of detergent.

Your owners manuel should tell you what type to use.

that would be model # 66516012403 correct??
you may have inadvertently set the lock on function..
check this out from your manual...

Lock On
Use the Lock On to prevent unintended use of the dishwasher
between cycles. You can also use the lock feature to prevent
unintended cycle or option changes during a cycle.
When LOCK ON is lit, all buttons are disabled.
NOTE: The dishwasher door can be opened while the controls
are locked. However, the lock must be turned off and the Start/
Resume button pressed to resume the cycle.
To turn on the Lock
Press and hold HEATED DRY for 4 seconds. LOCK ON glows.
If you press any pad while your dishwasher is locked, the light
flashes 3 times.
NOTE: If the Heated Dry option is selected, the light will
temporarily turn off until Lock On glows.
To turn off the Lock
Press and hold HEATED DRY for 4 seconds. The light turns off.

hope this helps,
best of luck,

Kitchen Aid dishwasher won't start. All keypad buttons/lights appear to be functional.

The touch pads are common to go bad. It could be a bad start switch pad or bad control board.

Whirlpool quiet partners II normal light flashing

A rapidly blinking LED over one of the keys of the keypad (or sometimes a "dead" keypad/console)
To determine if the control or keypad is faulty, do the following test:
1. Unplug dishwasher or disconnect power.
2. Open the dishwasher door.
3. Open console and disconnect the keypad ribbon connection from the control (at P1).
Make sure all other connections are made.
4. Put console back together. Do not close the dishwasher door.
5. Plug in dishwasher or reconnect power.
6. Wait 5 seconds.
7. Close dishwasher door.
8. Monitor the control's response:
If the control is OK (no longer sees shorts with the keypad unplugged),
it will respond by turning on a Drain Motor for 2 minutes.
Check and/or replace the keypad if the control responds OK.
If the control is not OK (still sees shorts with the keypad unplugged),
then the drain motor will NOT respond and will remain off.
If no response, replace the control.

Power failure

  • Find the "Start/Cancel" button on the dishwasher's control pad. This button is located on the far-right side of the pad on most Frigidaire Gallery dishwasher models.
  • 3 Press the "Start/Cancel" button to clear the "PF" error code. Resume using the dishwasher as normal. You may have to reselect and start your cycle from the beginning.

remove the drain hose and make sure its not plugged with food debris then hit the drain/cancel button and put the drain hose end in a bucket and see how much water comes out of the end of the hose if any,if the 2 green lights are flashing this too is a clue to this problem,also make sure you can hear the drain pump running when you start it as explained in the above statement

Green start button won't stop blinking

START/RESET status indicator light flashing

You have pressed the indicator light flashing START/RESET pad while the START/RESET dishwasher is running. This will cancel the cycle. The light will stop flashing after the dishwasher drains (about 90 seconds).

Press the pad once to start the dishwasher. Press the pad a second time when the dishwasher is running only if you wish to cancel the cycle.

Power to the dishwasher was turned off while a cycle was running and power has just been restored to the dishwasher. The blinking lights indicate that the dishwasher is draining the potential water inside.

The light will stop flashing after the dishwasher drains. A new cycle will start automatically.

Good luck

Dishwasher lights are all flashing

If you do have the Touch Control Electronic Pad, then you do have a problem, moisture related. You need to open the panel, use a Hairdryer to dry the panel properly and replace. This sorts many of these Touch Control Electronic Pad.
