Kenmore Elite Dishwasher starts to fill, then stops
My best guess is the door latch or door latch switch is not working properly. Once the unit is full of water try holding the door shut tightly if the unit runs by doing this check the top rack and make sure it is completely seated to the back. I have found a knife or fork tangled in the top rack and letting it seat, also the alignment of the water line for the top rack. If it does not run with what I have suggested, it will be time to start checking the mainboard operation.
I hope this helps

Kenmore dishwasher ultra was quiet guard 3 model
that would be model # 66516012403 correct??
you may have inadvertently set the lock on function..
check this out from your manual...
Use the Lock On to prevent unintended use of the dishwasher
between cycles. You can also use the lock feature to prevent
unintended cycle or option changes during a cycle.
When LOCK ON is lit, all buttons are disabled.
NOTE: The dishwasher door can be opened while the controls
are locked. However, the lock must be turned off and the Start/
Resume button pressed to resume the cycle.
To turn on the Lock
Press and hold HEATED DRY for 4 seconds. LOCK ON glows.
If you press any pad while your dishwasher is locked, the light
flashes 3 times.
NOTE: If the Heated Dry option is selected, the light will
temporarily turn off until Lock On glows.
To turn off the Lock
Press and hold HEATED DRY for 4 seconds. The light turns off.
hope this helps,
best of luck,

Dishwasher backing up
sound like you have a few things going on there.there is a float switch which is located at the front right side of dish washer, make sure this floats freely . also sounds as through your drain line may have become plugged. Ease to fix , remove the line and hard line from the pump with a set of plyers. and remove the debris from the diaphram within the hard line.. before starting this be sure to remove as much water from within the dishwash, easiest way is to use a shop vac.

Dishwasher just wont start no lights on
do you have 120 to the thermal fuse? if you do then you are probable having a problem with the neutral. the other thing to check is the connection at the bottom of the dishwasher the neutral is probably melted. you would have to resplice it

Kenmore Elite Dishwasher Model# 665.15912001
Yeah, I have a similar problem. I tried to go into a suggested diagnostic run, but that didn't yield anything. I tried pushing the Sani-Rinse and Air Dry buttons back and forth a number of times. Didn't help.
At first I thought the lock-on had accidently been engaged, but disengaging the "child lock" doesn't help. The lock-on light comes back on and sometimes blinks rapidly. I"ve counted around 7 rapid blinks at times and 3 rapid blinks at other times--in case that makes a difference. The control panel doesn't work--in other words, the dishwasher does not start, even when I can successfully get other lights to come on. I don't want to spend >$100. for a new control panel if that is not really the problem.

Kenmore dishwasher runs bout 5seconds then stops
check it has salt in the bottom tank. check the out pipe is not blocked or bent/twisted. check water feed is working and the filter in the line is clear. ( filter is in the machine side of the pipe you need to turn off water and remove the pipe at this end to get to the filter)
