Re: lights on pots and pans blink constantly
Try disconnecting power for a bit. try the cord under the sink. if its hard wired (no cord) you can try the breaker. may reset itself. otherwise, you have a logic board issue. consult the manual first for explanation of blinking lights etc. then call the mfg for further info and if needed, schedule an approved repair person. good luck mark

Kenmore Elite Dishwasher blinking light Control Board FIX ....year old washer, did a google search for the problem, and your video came up.
Your description of the problem is a little vague.... What light(s) stay on? What light(s) flash? Is there a pattern to the flashing lights, in other words, does it blink so many times, then pauses, and repeats? Ir does it just blink steadily, continuously? And how about a model number or approximate age of your dishwasher?
That reset sequence code didn't work for me. We tried everything on a ton of forums. What I did to fix our Whirlpool dishwasher was to disconnect the drainage tube from the garbage disposal. I noticed it smelled really bad so I figured it was clogged. I used a bucket to catch the water left in the tube. I took the sprayer from the sink and flushed out the tube. 4 pumpkin seeds and a couple of beans landed in my bucket. I flushed it a couple times. I hooked the tube back up to the disposal and sure enough all the lights returned to normal. I pressed start and it came on.
The red light tell you there is a fault. You have to read the fault code and it will give you a general idea of the problem - to do this you have to enter the service mode of operation - close the door and turn the dishwasher on. The Start/Stop light must be blinking. If the Start/Stop light is not blinking, press and hold the Start/Stop button for at least 3 seconds to exit the cycle. The Start/Stop light should now be blinking.
Press and hold the Start/Stop button while turning the dishwasher on. Release the Start/Stop button and immediately press it 2 more times. Flashing Intake/Drain and Salt lamps and a lit Rinse lamp indicates successful accessing of services mode Fault codes F00 Pots & Pans Lit F01 Sani Wash Lit F02 Normal Plus Lit F03 Normal Lit F04 Economy Lit F05 Rinse & Hold Lit F06 Pots & Pans Lit F07 Sani Wash Lit F08 Normal Plus Lit F09 Normal Lit Flashing
I've finally tracked down the manual and it the fault code is as follows "Indicates a fault in the heater or in the thermistor" You can go into a fault tracing mode by pushing the "Rinse Hold" button five times within 15 seconds. The first, third, fifth and seventh lights will flash when in this mode and you can test the following parts by pressing the corresponding button. I'm going to try the heater test below and assume that if that works the fault must be with the Thermistor. The other tests could be useful for other faults. User manual found here Rinse Hold - tests detergent solenoid, detergent flaps open after about 60sec Pots & Pans - tests Rinse Aid Solenoid, rinse aid will flow down door Normal Wash - tests water inlet valve, water can be heard entering Light Wash - tests ventilator solenoid, there will be a click followed by a rattling noise Quick Wash - tests the heater, the element heats up, WARNING don’t touch element HOT Temp - tests circulation pump, the pump starts Dry - test outlet pump, the pump starts Manual says to push 55 and 65 degree button to exit, I have no idea where those are so will probably just switch off at wall to reset. Hope this helps someone. I rang ASKO and they said they didn’t know what the fault code meant so either they can’t read or their service sucks, probably a bit of both!
shut off the power and see if the unit will reset. if its plugged in, it will be easy, look under the sink. if not, try a breaker. let the power stay off for about a minute. then back on. if not restored, then you have logic boards that failed. sorry, good luck mark
