Question about Kenmore Dishwashers
CLEAN LITE WASH FLASHING/PUSHED NORMAL WASH/HEATED DRY 5 TIMES AND IT STARTE WORKING---BUT NOW IT JUST KEEPS ON RUNNING--IS THERE A CODE TO FIX THIS?
If you cannot cancel the cycle then turn power off and back on.
Then try to program a short cycle from panel and see if it works.
I am assuming when you say that it keeps running you mean the water keeps churning and does not drain out.
If short cycle works ok then the dishwasher is not heating water to the correct temperature. Need to check thermostat or heater.

It indicates a water temp problem. If water temp doesn't rise at a certain rate, by the heater, it goes into this error. Probably a problem with heater or wires to it.

SOURCE: dishwasher not running
is the Start/Resume indicator flashing?
Opening the door or interrupting the power stopped the cycle. Close the door and press START/RESUME.
Does the Start/Resume indicator flash 3 times when you
press START/RESUME? The dishwasher is waiting for you to
open the door after the last cycle. Open and close the door,
then press START/RESUME.
may be the motor has stopped due to an overload....as you have mentioned...many of the buttons were pressed...
The motor automatically resets itself within a few minutes. If it does not restart, call for service.

That is a comon problem with that model. It is not sensing a temperature change in the water.
Push i believe it is heated dry and sani rinse going back and fourth between the two to clear the code and see if you can get it to complete a cycle. If it doesnt call sears and schedule service there is a service flash repair that should not cost you anything to repair the unit.

This may or may not help in your situation, but the following link explains how you may be able to clear the blinking clean light problem:
Now...keep in mind all dish washers are not alike and have different panel options. If you do not have the same set up as I have referenced, the tech sheet for your dishwasher will explain. The tech sheet is located behind the lower toe panel under the door and lists the proper sequence of buttons to push for diagnostics and troubleshooting.
NOTE: Sometimes the tech sheet is located behind the inner door panel. You will need to remove the screws securing the inner panel to access it if this is the case. Make sure you turn off the main power breaker before doing so.
Sometimes this can be a momentary glitch in operation. However, if the problem keeps reoccuring the number of flashes is an indication of which circuit is causing your problem. Again, refer to your tech sheet to determine this.
If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you solve your problem.
