Question about Kenmore 24 in. 16259 / 16254 / 16252 Built-in Dishwasher

Brand new 16254- blinking LED, nothing happened

I just got the Kenmore 16254 from sears, after hooked everything, and checked everything on the list without no problem. After I plug in the power, only Hi-Temp & Heat Only LEDs flashing/ blinking, and nothing happened when I press any other options, Start/Cacel. Only thing I can stop blinking is either open the door or unplug the power. The plumber guy said it is the dishwasher problem. I search Internet, no one had same problem that I have so far, any suggestions about this problem or suggestions about the dishwasher? Thanks!! LW

    Having same problem with blinking LED. Have not found the cause. Does not happen on every wash.

    I am also having the same problem. I called Kenmore, but they said that they can't come out until the first week of February! I am pretty disappointed that it will take that long. It seems like something that they could troubleshoot over the phone. I also submitted a question online to the Kenmore experts. Once I hear something, I will post here.

Temprary solution is to press both Hi-Temp and Strart. The washer will go through test cycles and finish. The next time it will work fine. This is a intermittent problem. No final solution yet.

    I had a repair man come out from Sears and it turned out that it wasnt sending power to the heat element. It would run sometimes non stop other times it would run for a few minutes and then the lights would blink. He replaced the control module and it seems to be fine now......They also said that sometimes the problem is that the hotwater heater isnt set high enough.. He said it takes 20 minutes to raise the temperture 1 degree. He said to make sure the hotwater heater is set to at least 120 degrees and to run the hot water to get it in the pipes before I start the dishwasher..
