Kenmore dishwasher 165.15812992

The red "Lock On" light is flashing. I looked to unplug it, but it seems to be directly wired because there is no plug-in under the sink. I turned the breaker off then on, but it is still flshing. Is there a series of buttons to push to reset?

    You're right about the model number--sorry, typo. I tried your solution, but it didn't do anything. So anything else I can try to avoid a service call?

Try pressing the NO HEAT DRY or AIR DRY button for 4 seconds. The light should blink then go out.
I think the first digit of your model number should be a 6 instead of a 1. 665.15812992
Post back to let me know what happens.
Thanks/Mike

    Try alternately pressing the air dry and hi-temp scrub buttons 4 times. Or air dry and sani rinse, whichever applies to your machine. All the lights will come on.

    This puts the machine into the diagnostic cycle.

    It will activate all functions of the washer.

    If it won't go into diagnostics or the lock light is still on, you will have to replace the control board or console.

    Since the light is flashing instead of glowing steady, I expect there is a stuck or shorted key on the console.

    Thanks/Mike

Kenmore ultra wash dishwasher model 665.17779990 red 'lock on' flashing. Tried holding down 'no heat dry' button for a minute, unplugged for 30 minutes and neither worked. Please help!!


Hi, I'm sorry to hear that.
It sounds like you may have a stuck button on the keypad that's preventing you to unlock it.
If that was the case, a new panel would be needed. Best of luck.

We cannot start our brand new Kenmore Elite Ultraclean dishwasher. The only lihgt that comes on is the flashing red lock light. no other buttons work. What do i do?


Look at the top of the dishwasher door. There may be instructions on how to lock/unlock the controls there. For example, mine says to hold the Heated Dry button for 4 seconds to toggle between lock/unlock.

Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher, model 665.15812, "locked" light stays on. Pressing and holding "no heat dry" does not cancel "locked" condition, neither does unplugging unit.


Hello Everyone,

Flashing Lock Button...tried pressing every button in every sort of sequence you can think of? Well try this!

After washing dishes by hand for a few weeks while I tried every solution I could find on the internet, I finally got my Kenmore 665.15812 Dishwasher to work! I found this post: http://www.applianceblog.com/mainforums/sears-kenmore/10277-kenmore-dishwasher-model-66515632000-flashing-air-dry.html

At the bottom Martee says that he jiggled the ribbon wire that is connected to the board (looks kind of like an IDE cable you'd find in a PC). I took off the inside pannel and the black box protecting the circuits. I jiggled the ribbon wire, and sure enough, I felt a click, shut the door, and everything was back to normal! HURRAY!

Hope this works for you!9_22_2012_4_15_08_pm.jpg

There should be a button on the machine with a padlock symbol. Hold it down for 4 seconds to unlock it. If you want to lock it again, hold it down for 4 seconds to turn it on.
