Question about Kenmore 24 in. 17262 Built-in Dishwasher
I have a Ultra Wash Dishwasher. The other day, i tried starting the clean cycle and nothing happened. The normal wash light keeps blinking. I tried to push the cancel button and nothing happened. I cycled the power and tried again with same results. I tried the power again and hit the cancel button and it started to drain then stopped. I then read on line to try to reset it. It started up like normal but after about 10 minutes into the cycle it stopped and the normal wash light is blinking again.
Please help. I'm having the same problem. My dishwasher clean light blinks 7 times every 5 seconds. Dishwasher won't start. I can press any of the wash or rinse cycle buttons and then start and the start just blinks red but does nothing. I heard there is a reset switch but I don't know where it is. Can you help????
I've got a Kenmore that will not complete the cycle, it stops at sanitize and the light just blinks

My guess is that the foil that the buttons are mounted to is defective. The control module "reads" the buttons that are pushed by the fact that the resistance between two pins on the circuitboard becomes zero ie. your pushing the button shorts out two pins. the foil could have moistire damage or the resiistance of the tracks could be too high. Solution for both would be to replace the control panel button foil.

if unavailable on line, contact mfg's parts and you should be able to order it.
also, they likely do not make the unit. the sears may be able to tell you who made it. that company would be able to get you a diagram. just make some phone calls.

Hi: I just posted a similar problem, but found a solution. After taking the arm, etc. apart (and verifying no blockages), I thought maybe the lack of water pressure was being caused by the fact that there are TWO holes for the top spray arm (higher and lower rack setting) on my model. ie. that water was being forced out of both holes, causing a drop in water pressure, which was causing the top spray arm to stop spinning. I plugged the unused hole with a wine bottle cork (to keep the water from spraying out the unused hole), and voila, it now works.
I wish all appliance fixes were this easy...!

check and see if you are getting ac 110 volts to your water vave when trying to start the unit. if no power check your breakers and /or the incoming power to your dishwasher if they are ok and show 110 voltage coming to the unit then you probably have a control board or touchpad problem which would need a little more detailed check out.
If you do have ac 110 to your water valve then you may just have a bad water valve. Because the washer has to fill first. Hope that helps!!
