I just read this for the same problem: push sanitize, then heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, cancel, then open and close the door. It worked. The dishwasher is running correctly even as I type this.

The problem is hard water. www.dishwasherfilter.com has a product to solve this problem once and for all. It filters the water going into your dishwasher and removes the hard minerals that leave those spots. It is very affordable and even has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look with this product.

Start by checking the connections where the power connects to the machine. If it has an electronic control there is a fuse that does open. Eric

I just took my Kenmore elite 17262 apart because it was not getting the top rack clean and the soap was not being used up- i.e. low water pressure. The short story - Misc. objects were clogging the screen/grinder, I cleaned out olive pits, a small plastic bag, pieces of plastic and masking tape (from labeled Tupperware) and stringy food, now it cleans much better. Getting to the grinder compartment was tough. A few tips: the top rack drawer slides come out after you remove the stops in front by pushing the buttons and pulling the stops toward the center of the machine. The tube at the back unclips from the ceiling and the back wall and tilts down as you slide the connection out from the supply tube at the bottom. Hold the spray arm and turn the plastic centerpiece clockwise to screw it down through the arm. Rotate the top manifold/supply pipe clockwise 1/8th turn to release; next you will need a small torx (star) driver to take out four screws holding in the screen/manifold. Note where the two nylon washers go on the pivot/axle for the arm. Under the screen/manifold is the grinder cover, remove one smaller torx screw and it will snap out (may be stuck in with accumulated goo). I used a shop vac to clean this area but sponges and tweezers would do, check for damage to the screen and blade. Inspect wash out and reassemble everything in order. The fine mesh screen pops off with a large screwdriver (careful cleaning the screen) Replace the two nylon washers under the pivot/axle and install the supply pipe manifold just before inserting the center pivot, if you put the pivot in first the manifold will not seat. A work light and small parts dish help. Use appropriate force on plastic parts and common sense. If you have hard water try the vinegar trick also (another post) or first. - good luck

I have the same dishwasher and the latch has never worked. Finally after 9 months and many service trips I went back to the store and they gave me a new dishwasher. Dealing with Sears has been a nightmare.

Pre-wash may be compromised and a new power circuit board may be needed.
My advice: As long as the other cycles are accurate and work as usual; Pre-wash in your sink (spray off waste material) before you place the dishes in the washer and commence cleaning. Its best to wash off food and other material before washing in the machine to avoid clogging the drains and pump.

Try unplugging it for an hour to reset it. you can reset some by unplugging and then hold the on button as you plug it back in.

A generic way to reset at Kenmore dishwasher is pressing the "heated dry" button then the "normal wash" button then again the "heated dry" then again the "normal wash". After you press those four buttons in a row your dishwasher should begin a short 12 minutes test cycle during which the dishwasher will reset.

When the clean light flashes, it indicates a problem with the heating element or that the control board isn't getting the change in water temperature information in the expected period of time. Sometimes this is caused by a problem with the thermistor or thermostat. It could also be caused by a problem with the door switch or motor. Try cleaning the area around the latch and draining the washer after putting water in the tub. After that inspect the element for pitting or discoloration. Replace it if it is damaged. Check the resistance across the thermistor to ensure that the part is good. Check the wiring between the motor, thermostat, and heating element to the control panel for continuity and replace if there is a problem. If the rest of the parts are good, replace the control board.
