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.

I had the same problem... the lock on light was blinking continuously. The solution required disassembling the door to get to the control panel electronic board. You'll notice a flat transparent cable coming out of one end, twisting under the board and going into the door panel. In the middle of the door, there's a number of wires taped together that curled over the flat cable. Look for any black tape residue on the flat cable, which seemed to be causing a short circuit and confusing the electronics. After carefully removing the tape residue from the flat cable, the problem went away.
Hope this helps :)

that would be model # 66516012403 correct??
you may have inadvertently set the lock on function..
check this out from your manual...
Use the Lock On to prevent unintended use of the dishwasher
between cycles. You can also use the lock feature to prevent
unintended cycle or option changes during a cycle.
When LOCK ON is lit, all buttons are disabled.
NOTE: The dishwasher door can be opened while the controls
are locked. However, the lock must be turned off and the Start/
Resume button pressed to resume the cycle.
To turn on the Lock
Press and hold HEATED DRY for 4 seconds. LOCK ON glows.
If you press any pad while your dishwasher is locked, the light
flashes 3 times.
NOTE: If the Heated Dry option is selected, the light will
temporarily turn off until Lock On glows.
To turn off the Lock
Press and hold HEATED DRY for 4 seconds. The light turns off.
hope this helps,
best of luck,
