Question about Kenmore 24 in. 15689 Built-in Dishwasher
My dishwasher won't start. When I press cancel, the normal wash starts blinking red. Can you tell me whats wrong and how to fix this problem?
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.

Hold down the "HEATED DRY" button for 4 seconds to unlock.
Try to press these botton in sequence,Heated Wash, Heated Dry, Heated Wash, Heated Dry.release your hand, the unit will go into diagnostic mode. that is all leds will ON for a few seconds,and start normal operations.
If that does not work, you might need to check the electronic control board if the ribbon is seated properly.
Finally solution, is to change the electronic control board.

ngfam at you service! happy to assist!
The blinking lights are called codes and this is warning you that there is a technical problem. Probably an electronic failure some where. This can only be diagnosed by a trained service tech!
We sell appliances for 65 years and I recommend this nation wide Factory repair service!
Call A&E Factory Service /They service nation wide
And are available 24/7 for making appointments!
If the appliance is 10 years old or more,it may make sense not to invest any money to fix it!
Happy to assist you,
PLEASE GIVE ME A GOOD RATING BEFORE YOU SIGN OFF!

That is a comon problem with that model. It is not sensing a temperature change in the water.
Push i believe it is heated dry and sani rinse going back and fourth between the two to clear the code and see if you can get it to complete a cycle. If it doesnt call sears and schedule service there is a service flash repair that should not cost you anything to repair the unit.
