Question about Kenmore 16602 / 16604 / 16609 Built-in Dishwasher
I read your solution to a similar problem posted back in Nov, 2007 and I hope you can help me. My DW model is 665.15862 (actualy, the sticker inside says 15862990) and it is about 7 years old. My buttons do not match anything I have seen posted online and I think I have tried every possible combination of quickly alternating pushed of two buttons. Left to right, my buttons are: pots pans-normal wash-water miser-china wash-quick wash-quick rinse-water heat-sani rinse-no heat dry.
If I close the door, the "quick rinse" light comes on continuously. If I push any button, the "lock on" light comes on, then a few seconds later, both blink in tandem. Last night, after trying different button push combinations, I was standing around when some minutes later, the pump came on to drain the DW. Since there had not been any water in the DW for several weeks, I put a gallon or so in via the sink hose, and the DW went through a full drain cycle. A number came up in the window, 10, I think, and then it went back to its old thing.
Can you help with an unlock sequence?
Try holding down the "lock" button.It may be the way to unlock the problem.

Have Whirlpool GU1500XTLT1 with exact same symptoms, even tried power off but the lights resumed blinking when powered back up. Used solution from "kent168" of 17 Nov 2010 for similar GU1500XTLS1 with a different problem, and IT WORKED: "Reset the machine: press control buttons in this sequence: sani rinse, air dry, sani rinse, air dry, clear."

Open the door. Within 3 seconds press the following sequence --Try pressing normal wash, heated dry, normal wash, heated dry, normal wash, heated dry three times within 6 seconds and then press cancel to reset the dishwasher. If that doesn't help then try pressing Saini Rinse, Heated Dry, Saini Rinse, Heated Dry, Saini Rinse, Heated Dry or Saini Rinse, Air Dry, Saini Rinse, Air Dry,Saini Rinse, Air Dry 3 times in 6 seconds and then the Cancel Button. Close the door and press Cancel.
Blinking lights would stop and should be able to use your dishwasher normally. If the light is still blinking try and reset the power to the dishwasher and try again. If still the light is blinking then check for the connections on the keypad, it may be due to moisture or shorted connections on keypad.
Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Welcome to FixYa
your question the issue seems to be with the control that is locked and needs
to be unlocked to solve the issue. To unlock the control press and hold the
RINSE ONLY/AIR DRY button for 15seconds. Please get back to me if you have any
