Kenmore model 66516352301 diswasher flashes Wash but won't start

The "Normal Wash" button flashes. Start did nothing. When I pressed the "Cancel / Drain" button then it also flashed. I have tried to cut power to it overnight and a day to see if maybe something might "reset". This had no effect.

    Is there anything I can coat the circuit board with after I again clean it to protect it from the elements? Cleaning the circuit board did indeed fix it. It worked for a couple of months but now the problem has returned. I?m assuming the circuit board needs to be cleaned again. This seems to me a design flaw. David

I had a simular problem with my Kenmore. I unplugged it for an hour or so and it worked for a while. (Disconnect dishwasher from power befer attempting this procedure!) I ended up removing the inner door panel and removing the circuit board. I used a clean damp (distilled water preferred) paper towel and wiped down the entire circuit board surface. I paid special attention to the areas between the closely spaced component leads. I dried the board with a dry paper towel and re-installed the board. The dishwasher has preformed flawlessly for the past 4 months.

I believe that the mist and steam deposites a thin film of very conductive detergent and minerals on the board surfaces over time. The resulting electrical leakage paths "scrambles" the control's "brains".

I also noted that prior to my repair, most of the led cycle indicating lights were very dimly glowing with the room lights out. Also, the wash cycle ran for a much longer time.

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.

I just read this for the same problem: push sanitize, then heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, cancel, then open and close the door. It worked. The dishwasher is running correctly even as I type this.
