Question about Kenmore Dishwashers
The most likely failure that causes this would be the thermal fuse that is located in the console.
It is a temperature controlled device that can trip if there is a lot of heat in the control area.
If you want to tackle the repair it is not too difficult and requires a basic understanding of electricity and an ohmmeter.
I would need your model number that is on the tag just inside the door to give you detailed instructions but basically the fuse is attached to the control board just behind the button panel. The fuse does not look like a regular fuse and it has 2 wires going to it.

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question
