Kenmore Elite 665.1392 / 665.1394 Control Lock Light is on. No other buttons are responsive. Dishwasher won't run.

The control lock should toggle on and off if you press and hold that button (on the right side of the group of buttons) for 3+ seconds. Until the lock is released, the other buttons won't work. If the lock won't release, either the keypad or the control board are not communicating the unlock signal between them. (This could indicate a problem with the wiring, one or both of the two boards.) The parts list for the 665.1392 control panel is available here: . There may be other sources for the parts.

You'll need to open up the control panel to do any diagnostics. If your dishwasher is still under warranty, contact Sears for a service call.

I hope this helps.

I have a top drawer and a bottom drawer type. My

1. Locate the "Energy Saver/Dry" button on the dishwasher. The location of this button will be different depending upon the specific model number of the dishwasher, but should be easy to spot. If you have trouble finding it, you can check the diagram in the manual of your dishwasher for the exact location for your specific model.

2. Press and hold down this "Energy Saver/Dry" button for at least four seconds. Make sure that you do not release the button until at least 4 seconds have passed, otherwise the lock will not become disabled.

3. Check to make sure that the child lock indicator light has turned off. If this light is no longer on, this means you were successful at turning off the child lock. If the light is still on, repeat the process, but try to press and hold the "Energy Saver/Dry" button for a few seconds longer. If it still doesn't work, there may be a more complicated issue with your dishwasher. Consult your manual, or call to the manufacturer or repair man to determine if there is another problem with your dishwasher.

Filter light status

Please verify the model number for your fridge, as the description shows a Frigidare 24" dishwasher.

With the model number and you providing the different buttons on the front panel, I can provide you with the button sequence to push and hold to reset the filter light.

While waiting for the needed info for an exact solution, you can try this:
If you have a "light" and "lock" button, push and hold them together for several seconds, the filter light should go off or change back to green.

If not, please provide me with the brand and model number for your fridge so I can give you the correct procedure for resetting the indicator light, by responding back with a "comment".

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Kenmore dishwasher 665 Lock on light

You may have a stuck button as this will cause flashing of lights, try pushing button and see if it returns if not strike lightly above it with plastic spoon etc.

If this does not work u can buy the control panel from Sears for 190.00 but first go to then type your model no. In required space click on shop parts on appropriate model, then go to troubleshooting then to won't start, then go down to how to replace control panel.

According to instructions you will only need torx screwdriver and less than 30 minutes to replace.

My Whirlpool quiet wash plus 940 series is stuck on "lock out"

Same problem and I was about to call for service. Opened the dishwasher to get the model number and noticed a sticker stating to hold down the Heated Dry button for 5 seconds to clear the lock light. Worked for me!

Normal wash flashing Red

We have the same problem with kenmore model 66513839k600
we press light wash and normal wash lights up, we have to wait over a month for sears to service. This will be the second control panel they will install on warranty, a month is far too long a wait for service on any appliance.
