Dishwasher won't stop blinking (clean lite) i can't do anything
Press back and forth between hi-tempwash and sani rinse several times to get all lights to come on if not then press sani rinse and heated dry back and forth several times. one of though combos will start the test mode. the test mode will stop the light from blinking and you can use the dishwasher again

Using the Hi-temp and sani rinse buttons back and forth got the washer to light all the buttons up,but only closing the door actually got it out of reset mode. It ran a short cycle and then stopped. I had to start he washer all over again. It working so far.

I have had the same problem with my Kenmore Elite dishwasher. After calling Sears to get some sort of help on this matter, I was given the quick fix on how to reset the chipset inside the dishwasher much like other people have stated on this forum (i.e. press on Heated Dry and Normal Wash buttons in sequence a couple times until all the lights come on). However, the problem kept happening regularly despite my continuous re-setting efforts. I then called a technician that made me aware of the actual source of the problem. There is a temperature sensor inside the dishwasher that will prevent normal operations if the in-coming water temperature is not hot enough. Since I live in a brand new home, I quickly realized that new building code standards require the installation of a heatguard system that prevents scalding by blending cold water with the hot water coming out of the hot water tank. Despite having my hot water tank thermostat cranked way up, the hot water temperature circulating through the house is governed by the heatguard solenoid. Simply re-adjust the setting on that heatguard device to a higher setting until your dishwasher stops manifesting signs of malfunction.
Good luck, hope this helps!

Having problem with my Kenmore Elite, not sure of the model. It was bought brandnew in May 2007- only 2 years old!! It will fill up with water, and then it sounds like maybe a motor is burnt out? You can here a humming, but nothing happens after the water fills. I have let it set for about 1.5 hours after the last load was done- and it is still not doing anything. Tried the Normal Wash and Heated Dry buttons. All lights came on. Nothing is still happening. Am I missing a step? Is the door to be opened or closed? Please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Had a big dinner tonight- and do not want to have to wash everything!!!

I had a blank board--it had went 'dead' and your advice worked to restart the panel. I knew there had to be some form of reset--thanks for the advice

All of a sudden there is water flooding from the bottom of the dishwasher when it's running. I took the bottom front panel off and it seems to be draining right onto the floor .... seems to come from the near the front (underneath) of the dishwasher. Any ideas what to do???

Our kenmore leaves white flecks on the glasses so we ran some vinegar water through a cycle and that has cleared it up a little but we still have little white flecks on the classes. We do not use a powder but a liquid detergent. When I rub these flecks in my hand with some moisture they dissolve so I assume it is soap. How can i get rid of these flecks?

Kenmore Elite, ultra wash , Quiet Wash 4, water flows into the basin then will not do anything else. Sounds like a curcuit trip after water flows. Any suggestions?

We have a Kenmore Elite dishwasher that runs then stops and none of the buttons light up. The problem has to do with a blown thermoresistor. Its a $20 part that you can replace yourself. We've had to replace the thermocouple, heating element and control panel...but the thing is a piece of junk. There is a safety issue here but Sears will not listen to us. This is supposed to be a high end dishwasher but we waste more time repairing the thing than using it. What a headache! I think we'll be junking it soon and buying from somewhere elese!!!!
We just had the issue of the clean button flashing and pressing the Normal Wash then Heated Dry buttons to reset the panel helped. I thank Kenmore 777!

If you need any parts for a Kenmore elite I have a two year old and it is like new only used 1 year and only lightly . but since we starved it of water it wont run and I already put in a new one. could have fixed or cleaned the sencer and saved a lot but got a new one any way.

I had a problem similar to yours and I found that my dishwasher wasn't level. After I leveled it, I didn't have the problem repeat. The other issue with the dishes being wet, should be handled by the heated dry option. The air dry, though energy saving, doesn't dry them at all in my opinion.
