Question about Kenmore Dishwashers
Kenmore dishwasher model # 665.16033400 The clean light will blink 7 times. The owners book said there is a problem with the heat circuit. I checked the element it was bad I replaced it but it still blinks and will not run.
Ah, the famous (or infamous) Clean-light-blinking-7-times problem. That is the code for "water not heating error". This could be caused by a bad heating element, a bad thermal cutoff, a bad controller, or the 2 switches inside the door latch are not getting engaged fully.
Most of the time, I find that the cause to this problem deals with the latch, or the switches in the latch. If something (like a soda) gets spilled into the latch, it can cause the plastic parts to stick and not slide to engage the 2 door switches. You might need to take the latch out (unplug the dishwasher first!), remove the switches, and clean the plastic parts with water, dry it, and then re-assemble. The other thing to check is the door strike, which is supposed to push down the latch. The springiness of this metal part may be weak. You can remove it (without pulling out the dishwasher), by using a small screwdriver to release the little catches on either side of the "tongue" or "tang". Bend the center part down slightly more to give it more force, and then re-insert it. Then run the diagnostic cycle (by pressing the following sequence of keys: Heated Dry - Normal - Heated Dry - Normal; or High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry; or Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry, Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry; or High Temp Wash-Heated Dry - High Temp Wash - Heated Dry), let it run for a few minutes, and then press Cancel to stop the dioagnostic cycle and clear the error.

The computer needs to be reset. you may need to check the tech sheet that should have come with the dishwasher ( usually behind the toe panel) for directions on reseting it. If you cannot find the reset directions, let me know, I will have to look it up. thank you.
