Kenmore Ultra wash Dishwasher Model 665 15819992 - Lock Lite

I have Kenmore Uptra wash dishwasher Modet 665 1581992. The lock lite flashes and i cannot get it unlocked. Tried the recommended fix of holding the No Dry Heat button for 4 seconds but the lite remains flashing. Hit the cancel b utton - it also flashes and can be turned off by opening the door. However the lock lite comes back on with the door shut. Haven't tried removing power for any extended period of time - heard that may reset the light. Sears says the control panel has been discontinued. Any assistance?

push the heated/dry button on the dishwasher for 4 seconds and that will unlock the dishwasher. This is just a safety feature that allows you to lock the dishwasher to stop kids from pushing buttons.
If that doesn’t’ work let me know and they will send out a tech to fix it.

These dishwashers have a control panel lock feature that allows you to lock the control panel to prevent kids from activating the unit.
To toggle lock/unlock mode, open the door, press and hold the AIR DRY button for 4 seconds.
Please do this before spending any money on the touch panel.

Kenmore ultra wash dishwasher


Look carefully at your dishwasher keyboard, to see what key is nearest (above or below) the lighted lock symbol. Usually it's the Heated Dry button. Whatever it is, press and hold that key for 5 seconds. That should unlock you dishwasher and you can now use it normally.

I too had problems with the Kenmore Elite (aka Bosch). The issue was solved by replacing the Lock Sensor on the door. After replacing the sensor the dishwasher has been working. Hope this helps.

Kenmore dishwasher ultra was quiet guard 3 model 56516012403 control panel will not activate red lights blinking on normal wash and cancel drain. did the hold the heat dry button then the normal wash...


that would be model # 66516012403 correct??
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,
ttfn
