Diswasher won't start

My dishwasher is less than 2yrs old. It stopped working in the middle of a cycle and won't start again. The "Cancel" light keep flashing but none of the other buttons seems to work. No water inside. I can open the lid and close it and the Cancel light keep flashing.
I called KitchenAid and they asked me to turn off the circuit breaker for 45mins to reset the machine. That didn't work either. The Cancel light came back on and is flashing. Any suggestions?

Try holding the reset button in for about ten seconds.

The CLEAN light is flashing on my Kenmore QuietGuard3 , but it won't clean anything. It starts a cycle for a few minutes, stops and starts flashing clean again. Any suggestions?

You will have to reset the dishwasher. First try and turn off the mains power and back on after a short time. If the clean light flashing starts again then you go through the hard reset procedure.

press NORMAL WASH then HEATED DRY buttons one after the other until all the lights on the board lit up (3X's). The dishwasher will enter into a cycle; Press Cancel. This should stop the flashing.
If you are supplying dishwasher from hot water inlet then make sure the inlet water temperature stays within the recommended range of 145 deg F.

Here again is my model and serial it stops in the middle of the cleaning cycle Kenmore 665.16773402 serial # ft0302854 Here is how I have been resetting the dishwasher. I hit the following sequence of...

Door latch.
Open and close the door to make sure the door latch is securely fastened

Hi-Temp Wash, Hi-Temp Rinse, or Sanitize options.
Some models have options that may require a water heating delay, such as Hi-Temp Wash, Hi-Temp Rinse, or Sanitize. Additional time may be required to heat the water to the proper temperature. The dishwasher will continue to circulate water during this heating delay but the timer will not advance until the proper temperature is reached

No power or lights in the front panel

Check the fuse / circuit breaker inside washing machine. There may be a extra control circuit fuse normally on the control PCB.

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.

Dishwasher not working - Cancel light flashing

If your dishwasher doesn't work at all, check these:

Power from the house
Door switch
Timer or selector switch
Power from the house Is there power getting to the dishwasher? This can be difficult to test, because dishwashers are usually wired directly to an electrical circuit, rather than plugged into the wall. But at least check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.

Door switch The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it.

Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors.

Timer or selector switch Although it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If so, you need to replace the defective part, because neither of these can be repaired.

Kenmore Quiet Guard 2 keypad

Sounds like the electronic controls (smart card) are acting up. Try shutting off the power at your fuse box or shut off the circuit breaker for 1 minute them turn the power on again. This fix quite often works on electronic appliances.
