Kenmore Elite 665.13413k701 lights flashing, not working

I bought my house a year ago and it was remodeled. The dishwasher appeared to be new, but never worked. We haven't gotten around to fixing it until now. On the front panel, the "smartwash" and "pots and pans" lights blink together followed by "normal" blink in very rapid succession. I'm hoping this is an easy "Reset" type fix, but the the other answers online didn't work. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

SOURCE: Lock Light Blinking

My delay start light is blinking. If I push cancel it blinks, and lock on starts blinking. Tried resetting by pushing normal and lock buttons in sequence, did not work. Held lock button for 4 seconds, did not work.

SOURCE: Kenmore 665 dishwasher blinking clean light

you'll need to enter a diagnostic mode, press in this order, hi-temp(sani-rinse)----heated dry--hitemp---heated dry... all lights should light, close door and let cycle for about a min, after press the cancelbutton, you should be good to go, the buttons on your model may read slighty different names, if this "toggle of buttons" does not work, you can remove thelower access panel and htere willl be a tech sheet/trouble shoooter behind the panel, in there it will explain how to enter diag/test mode

SOURCE: pots and pans and normal wash blinking

Try resetting it. Locate the switch in your breaker box, and flip it off- then on again. Hope that works!

Often you will find a plugged screen at the inlet water valve. Small dirt particles can jamb the valve, disassemble that area and test. The screen can be cleaned.

Kenmore Elite: Model 66576962K601.


I had exact same issue. I've called Sears Maintenance. They had to change 2 pieces in UI: Timer KUDS02SRB10 and CONSOLE Assy. Cost 360$ pieces  130$ Job Charge 60$ taxes.
Now It works perfectly, but I bought 1100$ 3 years ago... Really expensive to keep it running.

Kenmore Elite Dishwasher(665.15979990) wont drain


If the control panel is still lighting up I think it the thermal fuse has blown if you can take out the control panel and in that you will find the fuse you can test this with ohm test and here is a pic of what the fuse looks like and if you do replace this make sure you replace the new wires that come with the new fuse good luck hope this helps

KENMORE ELITE DISHWASHER - MULTI-LIGHTS FLASHING


Look at your manual, usually available on net for reading or downloading. Blink lights are often used to code out a problem with various combinations and repetition rates to indicate trouble code number for look-up in manual.

Kenmore elite dishwasher


I had the same problem when I bought it and it just happened again; the problem is solved by ressting the control panel: Hi Temp ---> Heated Dry two or three times. It kind of goes into a testing cycle and the clean blinking light goes off.
