Dishwasher "lock on ' control wont turn off

Kenmore Ultra Wash dishwasher model 665.15762. The control lock feature will not turn off. We can't start the dishwasher. I have tried to unplug hoping to reset it, but no go.The control panel has also been lighting up features durring the cycle that were not chosen. In the middle of the cycle all the lights go on, this is not to happen. I hope I don't need a new control panel.

How do i get my kenmore dishwasher to change from light wash to any other cycle, its kenmore ultra 13449k900 model, runs fine on light duty

Well, if you can't change the cycle by pressing another cycle button, yet you CAN press Start or Cancel and it responds, then you probably have a bad control console. If nothing responds, then you may just have the control-lock (or child-lock) feature turned on.

Kenmore ultra wash dishwasher

Look carefully at your dishwasher keyboard, to see what key is nearest (above or below) the lighted lock symbol. Usually it's the Heated Dry button. Whatever it is, press and hold that key for 5 seconds. That should unlock you dishwasher and you can now use it normally.

Normal wash light blinking, d/w wont start

Wish I could solve this, as I'm having the same problem too. Normal light blinks not matter which wash button is pressed. Cancel light will light, but still NOTHING happens. Same model as yours.

Kenmore dishwasher ultra was quiet guard 3 model 56516012403 control panel will not activate red lights blinking on normal wash and cancel drain. did the hold the heat dry button then the normal wash...

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,
