Question about Kenmore Dishwashers
Suddenly most buttons on the front panel of the Kenmore dishwasher did not light up including the Start/resume button so I couldn't get it to turn on. Then a few days later the rest of the buttons would not turn on. What happened? It had been very reliable up to that point. The Model number is 665.13749K603

SOURCE: blinking clean light
If the clean light flashes 7 times, pauses, then repeats...
When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it will stop working and lock the functions (clean light flashes 7 times, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.
To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...
-high temp wash
-high temp wash
...all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cycle finish (1-2 minutes).
You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.
If the issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit (ie. element, thermostat or wiring). It rarely happens but it could also be the door switch not engaging properly when the door is closed (slightly bend the door latch down making sure it doesn't hit the door when you close it).

holding the button for four seconds will not do it, you have to hold it until the light stops blinking and
will go back to normal, normall takes more than four seconds to unlock the unit, this is something
the sears repair techs know becouse the are trained on all this things but, they will not share this things, becouse thats how they make money

I have a solution. For Kenmore Dishwashers begining with model 587 and the flashing washing light.it will not start.
inside the front door there are two black and two white wires that lead to the handle. this connection is an on/off saftey for the door latch and if wet will short. The light is flashing because the machine thinks the door is open.
these connections on my machine are very loose. a needle nose pliers to tighten the crimps clean the prongs recconect hard reset at breaker box and you should be ready to go.

most likely you have a bad motor when replacing the motor ihave found it is cheaper to get the pump with the motor attached where as they charge you more money for just the motor or the pump seprately try allbrands appliance parts they seem to be cheaper
