We have the same problem with kenmore model 66513839k600
we press light wash and normal wash lights up, we have to wait over a month for sears to service. This will be the second control panel they will install on warranty, a month is far too long a wait for service on any appliance.

My kenmore dishwasher 665.17052400 clean light is flashing 7 times. I cannot locate the tech sheet to find out what is wrong. I have reset the panel and it will run then blink again after 15 mins or so. ...

Reset the Control Panel
A power surge or outage may cause the "Clean" light to flash continuously after power is restored. Pressing the buttons on the panel in order and within 5 seconds resets the control panel and turns off the flashing light. The buttons must be pressed in the following order: "Heated Dry," "Normal Wash," "Heated Dry" and "Normal Wash." After pressing the buttons, your Kenmore dishwasher will begin a short, 12 minute test cycle and reset the control panel.

Door Switch
A broken door switch can keep a Kenmore dishwasher from operating correctly, resulting in a flashing "Clean" light. Testing the door switch requires removing the door panel to access the control panel holding the switch in place. A continuity tester can determine if the switch has failed once you remove it from the door. Replace the switch if it fails to pass the continuity test. Make sure to disconnect the electricity to the dishwasher before accessing the switch.
I hope this helps.

Clean light keep on flashing

The solution cancel one time and you will see the red light, press another time and the red light will disapear, after press one time on heated dry and after press one time on normal wash after press start and it's suppose to work. For me it was the solution, I hope it will be the same for you.
