I cannot find my manual for this product.
"Lock on" light is flashing along with the "Cancel" light.
I tried holding the "NoHeat Dry" button for 4 seconds to unlock it. This does not seem to do anything.
I tried unplugging it. No change.
Please help with any ideas.
Push the heated/dry button on the dishwasher for 4 seconds and that will unlock the dishwasher.
This is just a safety feature that allows you to lock the dishwasher to stop kids from pushing buttons. If that doesn’t’ work let me know and they will send out a tech to fix it.

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!
that would be model # 66516012403 correct?? you may have inadvertently set the lock on function.. check this out from your manual...
Lock On 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.
This is a child lock feature to stop unwanted operation of the buttons. The usual way to cancel this on a Kenmore machine is to press and hold the "No heat dry" button for longer than 4 seconds. This should cancel the lock and resume normal function.
Hope this helps. Please do rate this answer. Thanks.
