Try the following:

Depress and hold the heated dry button until the light goes out. This may take more than the suggested 4 seconds (Sears suggestion).

This is an update to the dishwasher problem. Kenmore (actually Whirlpool) has a safety switch at the control panel. If water temperature is not regulated properly it locks the controls. In this situation, it really is a matter of unregulated water temperature control. For the dishwasher this is supposed to be internally set at 140 degrees F. It is likely that the thermostat (or the heating element may also be faulty) is faulty. It may be helpful to purchase a manual for the unit to see if they show you where the thermostat is located. To test the thermostat, unhook it from the (dishwasher) unit, place it metal down on a grill and turn on grill close to temp settings, and make continual checks of the Ohm continuity. Once the thermostat has reached default settings it should open (that is from nearly 0 Ohms to an infinity setting). If no changes occur in the Ohm-meter reading when close to temperature factory settings the thermostat is bad. Depending upon how new the unit is this is probably something that can be found without having to move the unit. If you think you can discover the thermostat without the manual, it is likely close to where the heating element is connected and will be supported by a small bracket (single screw).

Dishwasher wont turn on when I press start and... the "3 second" lock light is constantly on??


Child Lock Controls
To prevent children from accidently changing the
dishwasher cycle or starting the dishwasher, lock the
dishwasher controls by pressing and releasing the RINSE
ONLY pad (some models) or the NO HEAT DRY pad (some
models) for 3 seconds while the door is latched. An
indicator light on the lock graphic pad will illuminate when
the controls are locked and no new selections can be made
until the lock is released. To unlock the controls, press the
same pad, RINSE ONLY or NO HEAT DRY, again for 2
seoncds until the indicator light goes out.


Hope this helps?

I have a 3022 13929991 Ken Elite Dishwasher - I need to know where i can pull up a mannual got this at Sears Outlet Control lock is on and i can't get it off thanks for your help


Normally you should press the child lock for about 6 secs to turn it off. But if there is a fault in dishwasher then child lock light will be on or flashing.

This means some diagnostics is required to find the cause of the fault.
However, I don't think you have provided the correct model number of your kenmore elite dishwasher.
Normally it should be 665.xxxx Please check the model number carefully and post a comment.

How to release screen lock


Hello bsureshmkr,

If you have locked your iPod and cannot remember the unlock code you will need to use your iTunes software to unlock the MP3 player. Connect the player to the primary computer you use to add music to the iPod. Then start iTunes and synch the player as normal. When you are done synching and disconnect the iPod from the computer it will be unlocked.

Best Regards,
Ken
