Kenmore 665 17033400 Elite dishwasher clean light flashes 7 times and it wont run. i used the reset combination, all lights lit and stayed lit until i pressed reset. Then it started a wash. now the wash...

That signals an issue with a faulty heater &/or heater drive circuit.
(that info comes from their troubleshooting guide)

Lock on light flashing

I finally decided to calm down and use my head and managed to solve the problem. I read the instructions that are on the top of the dishwasher door. ( Smart move on my part HUH!) It said that when the door lock light is on everything is disabled. Hold the air/dry button down for 4 seconds and the lock light will go out. Guess what, IT WORKED. Here is what I learned from this. Always read all instructions. I spent $9.95 for an answer that was right in front of me. Humans can be so dumb I am!!!!
