According to my ultra wash dishwasher you have to hold the no heat dry button for 4 seconds and that is how you lock and unlock the control panel

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite Dishwasher clean light ind flashing and won't start

That means the control sensed that the heater in the d/w did not operate 3 times in a row. so the unit locks out. First remove the kick plate and you may have to pull the unit out from under the cab, but check your heater. use a meter to see if it reads open, if so order a heater assy it will come with a new control replace it to. If your heater checks good press in sequence normal wash , heat dry ,normal wash,heat dry , normal wash , heat dry three times within 6 sec all the lights will come on then hit cancel. What that did is reset the control and clear that fault. Keep in mind that d/w does not heat it's own water your incoming water temp should be 120. the d/w will maintain that temp. when starting your d/w first turn on your hot water till it gets hot then start your d/w this insures your unit fills with hot water and not cold

SOURCE: green light on kenmore dishwasher is flashing

I actually had to change the steps a little and this is what I did:

press heated dry
press normal wash
press heated dry again
press normal wash again
wait a few seconds
all the lights should come on
press cancel (should hear pump)
hit cancel again

Started a cycle and began washing.....Thx

Locked light is stuck on


Are you pushing the button repeatedly or pushing it once and and holding it on for 4-5 seconds? Just push and hold it on for a few seconds till the lock light goes off.

Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher, model 665.15812, "locked" light stays on. Pressing and holding "no heat dry" does not cancel "locked" condition, neither does unplugging unit.


Hello Everyone,

Flashing Lock Button...tried pressing every button in every sort of sequence you can think of? Well try this!

After washing dishes by hand for a few weeks while I tried every solution I could find on the internet, I finally got my Kenmore 665.15812 Dishwasher to work! I found this post: http://www.applianceblog.com/mainforums/sears-kenmore/10277-kenmore-dishwasher-model-66515632000-flashing-air-dry.html

At the bottom Martee says that he jiggled the ribbon wire that is connected to the board (looks kind of like an IDE cable you'd find in a PC). I took off the inside pannel and the black box protecting the circuits. I jiggled the ribbon wire, and sure enough, I felt a click, shut the door, and everything was back to normal! HURRAY!

Hope this works for you!9_22_2012_4_15_08_pm.jpg

Kenmore Elite Dishwasher(665.15979990) wont drain


If the control panel is still lighting up I think it the thermal fuse has blown if you can take out the control panel and in that you will find the fuse you can test this with ohm test and here is a pic of what the fuse looks like and if you do replace this make sure you replace the new wires that come with the new fuse good luck hope this helps
