Question about Dishwashers
So sorry but the partsdirect site for sears locked down my computer. Check where the drain hose connects to your pump and see if there is a small device the hose connects to that has 2 wires going to it. If it does unplug the wires, turn power off, wait 1 minute and turn power back on and see if it works with this disconnected. If it does you will need to replace this. It is like a sensor that says there is too much debris. Stupid part that was totally unnecessary in the first place. Sorry about the inconvenience.

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.

you'll need to enter a diagnostic mode, press in this order, hi-temp(sani-rinse)----heated dry--hitemp---heated dry... all lights should light, close door and let cycle for about a min, after press the cancelbutton, you should be good to go, the buttons on your model may read slighty different names, if this "toggle of buttons" does not work, you can remove thelower access panel and htere willl be a tech sheet/trouble shoooter behind the panel, in there it will explain how to enter diag/test mode

Kenmore dishwashers should be recalled!! Their poorly designed computer circuit boards are all malfunctioning around 15 months. Look on the inside top of your door. Do you see a instructions? There should be some about your Heat Dry button and holding it down for 4 seconds to reset your computer board. Read and try it first. It's like rebooting a computer.
