    I did turn the circuit breaker off and the message goes away enough to run the dishwasher once and the message returns. It's also only after the circuit breaker is off for 10 minutes or more. Would this lead you to the timer board or should I still test the other items on your recommended list? Thanks,

Hi.

Try tripping the circuit breaker or unplugging power cord to reset the appliance.

If you cannot get rid of the message, parts inside the appliance must be tested.

Test the door lock first, that is probably the cause of the fault. The lock is tested accessing the switch and measuring Ohms on switch contacts to check if the circuit is opening and closing.

Check the water level sensor, this is often a floater sensor. Ensure that this is not stuck, and test the switch in same way as door switch.

The inlet valve is tested reading ohms on valve solenoid contacts. If there is no continuity, then the valve must be replaced.

If the parts above are not faulty, and the door is closing as it should, then the fault is the timer board.

Regards.

    Hi.

    Replacing the timer board without testing will always be at risk. The timer board must be replaced only when everything else is OK.

    the fact that the fault state comes back after replacing the circuit breaker, only means that there is a fault, and that the machine keeps detecting that something is wrong.

    Before replacing the control board, parts must be accessed and tested, starting from the door lock.

    the door lock is tested reading impedance. To test it you must disassemble part of the appliance, cut door lock wiring and read Ohms on switch contacts.
    If you have not done it before , better calling a technician.

    If you have done some repairing test door lock first.

Start button blinks


It sounds like you have the child-lock or control-lock function turned on. To turn it off, just press and hold the Heat (or Heated Dry) button for 4 or 5 seconds. That should unlock you dishwasehr and you can now use it normally.

Kenmore dishwasher ultra was quiet guard 3 model 56516012403 control panel will not activate red lights blinking on normal wash and cancel drain. did the hold the heat dry button then the normal wash...


that would be model # 66516012403 correct??
you may have inadvertently set the lock on function..
check this out from your manual...

Lock On
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,
ttfn

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.
