SOURCE: Kenmore dishwasher Lock-On light flashing, will not start

Push the heated/dry button on the dishwasher for 4 seconds and that will unlock the dishwasher. This is just a safety feature that allows you to lock the dishwasher to stop kids from pushing buttons.
If that doesn’t’ work they will send out a tech to fix it.

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite Dishwasher Problem

The dishwasher should have a thermal fuse mounted to the control board behind the operator console4.gif. It is a small silver colored device4.gif attached to a white plactic bracket. In some model dishwashers the wrong gage wiring was used causing the wires to heat up and trip the thermal fuse. There was no apparent risk of fire or anything like that, but the thermal fuses didn't tolerate the heat differential too well. A fix for the problem was to purchase a thermal fuse replacement kit (found at most appliance repair stores) that had thicker wires. The part number for the thermal fuse kit is 959376 and the price is $16.85. You can find it at repairclinic.com. Order on line and have the part shipped directly to you. Now...to access the control board perform the following:

1. Turn off the main breaker to the dishwasher. This is important. Even though the dishwasher is not running, the control board still has live voltages present.
2. Open dishwasher door and remove the top screws that hold the console in place. You shouldn't have to remove the lower screws unless you plan on removing the entire door panel.
3. The control panel should pull off from the front enough to where you can access the control board. There is a thermal fuse mounted on the board with two wire leads going to it. The fuse is silver in color and mounted to a plastic bracket which is mounted to the control board.
4. Cut the wires on the old fuse and splice the new fuse kit to it. Leave plenty of wire to accommodate. There will be instructions included with your replacement kit. Ensure you follow the direction thoroughly and tighten the wire lug screws securely.

NOTE: Do not attempt to reuse the existing wires by simply unplugging the old fuse and replacing it with the new one (been there). The fuse will eventually blow again. Follow the instructions provided and you can't go wrong.

If you have any further quesitons, or if you run into trouble during your repairs, let me know. Good luck to you.

PS If you do not wish to order on line, take the part number I provided you to any major appliance repair shop4.gif and they SHOULD have the part available. This is a known problem and a common fail item.

SOURCE: Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher: Lock On Button Issue

Have to hold the Air Dry button down til your finger hurts. Release button and the light will go off. The "4 second press" in the manual is incorrect!

Brand new Kenmore dishwasher and it will not start. The "Locked" light keeps blinking when you try to select a cycle.


To unlock it press on the start button for 3 to 5 seconds, then select your cycle. It locks the same way.

Kenmore elite washer not starts just blinking lights.


What light(s) blink? How many times to they blink? Do they blink all the time, or just when you press a key? If it's just 1 light that blinks 3 times whenever you press a key, then you have the child-lock (or control-lock) function turned on. If you look at your control console closely, you should see some key near the lock symbol (frequently the Heated Dry key), with the notation "hold 3 seconds". Press and hold that key for 3 to 4 seconds to de-activate the child-lock.

I too had problems with the Kenmore Elite (aka Bosch). The issue was solved by replacing the Lock Sensor on the door. After replacing the sensor the dishwasher has been working. Hope this helps.

I have a 3022 13929991 Ken Elite Dishwasher - I need to know where i can pull up a mannual got this at Sears Outlet Control lock is on and i can't get it off thanks for your help


Normally you should press the child lock for about 6 secs to turn it off. But if there is a fault in dishwasher then child lock light will be on or flashing.

This means some diagnostics is required to find the cause of the fault.
However, I don't think you have provided the correct model number of your kenmore elite dishwasher.
Normally it should be 665.xxxx Please check the model number carefully and post a comment.

Kenmore elite dishwasher model 665,15979992 remains locked - won't unlock


Depress and hold the heated dry button until the light goes out. This may take more than the suggested 4 seconds (Sears suggestion).
