Kenmore Dishwasher Model 665.1359

I have a kenmore Ultra Was dishwasher, model 665.1359, that flashes both the Cancel/Drain and Drying lights, together, without responding to any cycle selection, including drying. Nothing works, including the heat element for heating the water or drying. Does anyone know how to solve this problem without resorting to a costly repair? Thanks in advance!

SOURCE: Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher: Lock On Button Issue

Have to hold the Air Dry button down til your finger hurts. Release button and the light will go off. The "4 second press" in the manual is incorrect!

you may have inadvertently set the lock on function..
check this out from your manual...

Lock On
Use the Lock On to prevent unintended use of the dishwasher
between cycles. You can also use the lock feature to prevent
unintended cycle or option changes during a cycle.
When LOCK ON is lit, all buttons are disabled.
NOTE: The dishwasher door can be opened while the controls
are locked. However, the lock must be turned off and the Start/
Resume button pressed to resume the cycle.
To turn on the Lock
Press and hold HEATED DRY for 4 seconds. LOCK ON glows.
If you press any pad while your dishwasher is locked, the light
flashes 3 times.
NOTE: If the Heated Dry option is selected, the light will
temporarily turn off until Lock On glows.
To turn off the Lock
Press and hold HEATED DRY for 4 seconds. The light turns off.

hope this helps,
best of luck,

Kenmore elite dishwasher model 630 Smart Wash light is flashing


You may want to try:
Press a series of four buttons in quick succession. Press "Heated Dry," "Normal Wash," "Heated Dry" and "Normal Wash" to instruct your Kenmore dishwasher to run a short diagnostic test.
Wait for two minutes while your Kenmore dishwasher runs its diagnostic test.
Press the "Cancel/Drain" button once your dishwasher has completed its diagnostic test. This should reset your dishwasher control panel.
Check to make sure that there's no standing water in the bottom of your dishwasher. Standing water in your dishwasher may indicate that your dishwasher has stopped mid-cycle. You will need to press the "Cancel/Drain" button before you can reset your dishwasher control panel.

Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher, model 665.15812, "locked" light stays on. Pressing and holding "no heat dry" does not cancel "locked" condition, neither does unplugging unit.


Hello Everyone,

Flashing Lock Button...tried pressing every button in every sort of sequence you can think of? Well try this!

After washing dishes by hand for a few weeks while I tried every solution I could find on the internet, I finally got my Kenmore 665.15812 Dishwasher to work! I found this post: http://www.applianceblog.com/mainforums/sears-kenmore/10277-kenmore-dishwasher-model-66515632000-flashing-air-dry.html

At the bottom Martee says that he jiggled the ribbon wire that is connected to the board (looks kind of like an IDE cable you'd find in a PC). I took off the inside pannel and the black box protecting the circuits. I jiggled the ribbon wire, and sure enough, I felt a click, shut the door, and everything was back to normal! HURRAY!

Hope this works for you!9_22_2012_4_15_08_pm.jpg

Normal wash light blinking, d/w wont start


Wish I could solve this, as I'm having the same problem too. Normal light blinks not matter which wash button is pressed. Cancel light will light, but still NOTHING happens. Same model as yours.

My kenmore diswasher model 665 15772 - lock button is flashing - dishwasher will not start. Can you help me?


6/3 I bought a Kenmore Ultra Wash dishwasher, Model 665. As many others have posted, my dishwasher also do does not automatically drain, leaving about 3" of water in the bottom of the machine. The only way to pump the water from the machine is to use the Drain/Cancel button, which cancels the cycle, and the dry option, leaving the dishes wet and spotty.

I just contacted a tech rep with Sears Repair and was told this is a Factory Defect with this model. Whirlpool (manufacturer) is aware of the problem and working on a resolution. Meanwhile, Whirlpool (via Sears and K-Mart) offers a free service call to install the "retrofit kit" that should solve the problem.

Even though Sears is aware of this problem, you will be expected to jump through their hoops - did you install a disposal at the same time and knock out the plug (FYI - if the plug is not knocked out, the Drain/Cancel option will not work and the machine will not drain at all). They will also ask if there is anything blocking the drain (FYI - if there is a foreign material block of any kind, the Drain/Cancel option will not work and the machine will not drain.

If this dishwasher (Model 665) does not drain automatically, THIS IS A FACTORY DEFECT. A retrofit kit is available to correct. In the DC Metro area, the wait time for an in home service call is three weeks.

If you have this problem, call Sears 1-800-4MY HOME and schedule a FREE retrofit kit installation

ALSO, call your sales person, and the appliance dept manager, at the store where you purchased the appliance to let them know this product is defective.

Dishwasher will not start..we've had it about 3 to 4 years


Some of these units have a thermal fuse in line with and mounted on the control card. This will need to be checked. Also check the door switches. Some models will aloow power to the control card but to nothing else.
