Question about Kenmore 16602 / 16604 / 16609 Built-in Dishwasher
My Kenmore 665.16817 s/n FX2506742 dishwasher Lock On light keeps flashing. I have pressed the No Heat Dry button and held for 4 seconds or more getting the Cancel light to also come on and now they are both flashing.
This situation came about over night and now I can not use the dishwasher.
I had Sears service come in and claim that I need a new control panel. $372. Ouch.
Is there any hope.
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 searspartsdirect.com 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.

THE HUMMING NOISE THAT YOU ARE HEARING IS THE ELECTRONIC DRAIN MTR ACTIVATING BUT YOU HAVE NO WATER IN THE SYS. SO IT SOUND LOUDER AND DIFFERENT THE HUMMING IS THE LESS OF YOUR WORRIES THAT IS NORMAL BUT WHAT IS NOT NORMAL IS THE CLEAN LIGHT FLASHING IF IT FLASHES 7 TIMES THEN PAUSES YOU HAVEA BAD PROCESSING BOARD AND ALSO A HEATER ON SOME OF THE KM MODELS THE CONTROL BOARD AND HEATER IS SOLD AS A KIT. TO VERIFY THAT THIS IS THE CASE GO TO WWW.SEARSPARTS.COM . BUT FIRST ALSO CHECK TO SEE IF YOU HAVE A BURNT WIRE AT THE HEATER ASSEMBLY WHICH WOULD REQUIRE PULLING THE DW OUT. GOOD LUCK

SOURCE: lock on light flashing
I finally decided to calm down and use my head and managed to solve the problem. I read the instructions that are on the top of the dishwasher door. ( Smart move on my part HUH!) It said that when the door lock light is on everything is disabled. Hold the air/dry button down for 4 seconds and the lock light will go out. Guess what, IT WORKED. Here is what I learned from this. Always read all instructions. I spent $9.95 for an answer that was right in front of me. Humans can be so dumb I am!!!!
