Kenmore Dishwasher 665 16059401 - Control lights flashing Not working

A few days ago the lights on the control panel started flashing. It ran one partial cycle and then quit. Now it will start, but within a few seconds turns off, and the start light flashes. If you hit it the cancel light turns on and flashes and then sometimes both do. I tried the heated dry normal wash key dance but it isn't working. Any suggestions on how to reset or fix this thing?

    We turned off the breaker for an hour. No luck. Sometime today it started flashing clean instead. When I say "start" it had filled at one point and then it pumped it out at one point. When it started you could hear water going in to it as well. The overfill protector moves freely. It also clicks when you move it. The door latch fastens securley too.
    We took apart the keypad console and reconnected it. It is still flashing Clean. If it means anything it flashes 7 times, pauses, flashes 7 times. Thanks for the help.

    We tried hitting those keys twice each in that order within 6 seconds. It didn't light up all the keys. I'm curious why now the clean light is blinking when yesterday it was the cancel/start button were the ones Blinking. Thanks again for the help. Awating more ideas

  • JessRN Aug 27, 2007

    Which one is it the Cancel or the Start button? Mine are two different buttons.

  • JessRN Aug 28, 2007

    That didn't work either and now the clean light and the cancel light are flashing. I'm assuming this means it's a bad key pad?

Hi Have you tried resetting your house breaker to your dishwasher, by turning it off for 60 secs. then back on again? this should reset your dishwasher. By Start can you hear the pump out. or can you hear water filling the dishwasher?..if it only pumps out..it may be the Overfill protector. Check to make sure the overfill protector moves up and down freely. The overfill protector is located in the left front corner of the tub it looks like a little hat. it should move up and down easily. and you should feel/hear a click that is your float switch. also check the Door latch. Open and close the door to make sure the door latch is securely fastened. Next you may take off the console, and reset that control board to keypad console connector , by taking that loose and reconnect it. If that doesn't work, then you may need a new keypad console assembly. let me know what you are doing to do? I can help you somemore.

    The seven flashes of the clean light
    is the problem is an insufficient rise in water temperature during a pre-set time period. The heater fault-detection program that was added to the electronic control is designed to shut down the dishwasher if the board-test for proper water temperature rise is not sufficient.

    the unit will drain and the clean light will blink seven times.

    you will need to find out why the water temperture was not sufficienet rise could be wiring to/failure of the control,
    heating element
    the thermistor
    the inlet valve
    door switch
    motor
    capacitor

    to reset
    within 6 seconds press Heated Dry, Normal, Heated Dry, Normal'
    all the lights should light up. and go into self Diagnostic Mode let me know if it helps..

    turn off for 60 sec. then try
    within 6 seconds press Heated Dry, Normal, Heated Dry, Normal then press cancel/start. this should reset.. if it will not let you it must be a bad touch pad and/or control...and they must be replaced... I just hope it works for you..

Heating Element

If lights are flashing on the control panel, the heating element might have burned out. The heating element heats the water up to operating temperature. After a set amount of time if the temperature isn't reached a light on the control panel might start flashing. The heating element can be checked for continuity with an Ohm meter.

Kenmore dishwasher wont turn on seems to have no power.


Check the breaker in your breaker box, it may have tripped. Reset it and run the dishwasher. If it trips again, have the dishwasher looked at by a professional service person.

My Whirlpool DU1145XTP won't turn on. Clean light


Check the themistor in the control panel. Radio Shack sells these for about $1.30 each. I replaced the one in my dishwasher three years ago and have had no issues since.

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 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.

Under cycle setting the quick rinse light keeps flashing and dishwasher does not run.


Hey Jim, if your model starts with 665 there was a service flash on this unit concerning your problem. SF-22-715. Dishwasher stops in mid cycle. The control board was redesigned to eliminate this problem. The service flash states that if only one indicator light is blinking it's usually a stuck or shorted keypad. I would check with Sears and see if you are covered under this service flash. Catriver...post back.
