If the lock light flashes constantly this indicates that a key (or keys) is most likely shorted or stuck. If this is the case the console or touch pad must be replaced. The console is only available in black (part number 3384340).
Try unplugging or turning off at ciurcut breaker and make sure someone stayas at the dishwasher to be sure the breaker is corredt . the light should go out when breker is turned off then plug back in that will reset the CPU
"Energy Saver/Dry" button on the dishwasher. The location of this
button will be different depending upon the specific model number of the
dishwasher, but should be easy to spot. If you have trouble finding it, you can
check the diagram in the manual of your dishwasher for the exact location for
your specific model. Press and hold down this "Energy Saver/Dry" button for
at least four seconds. Make sure that you do not release the button until at
least 4 seconds have passed, otherwise the lock will not become disabled. Check to make sure that the child lock indicator light has
turned off. If this light is no longer on, this means you were successful at
turning off the child lock. If the light is still on, repeat the process, but
try to press and hold the "Energy Saver/Dry" button for a few seconds
longer. If it still doesn't work, there may be a more complicated issue with
your dishwasher. Consult your manual, or call to the manufacturer or repair man
to determine if there is another problem with your dishwasher.

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.

I took off the lower panel and found some paperwork that gave option notes. under control lock it says "the Control Lock light is turned on and all keys of the keyboard are disabled wheneverthe control lock feature is involked by the customer. The Control Lock feature (and light) can be turned on or off by the costomer at any time by holding down the Air Dry option (water heat/ no water heat) key for 4 plus aeconds." Now I held it down (pushed) longer until the Lock light turned off, then If it doesn't turn off I did it to the no water heat and light turned off.
Hope this helps.

If that does not work, you might need to check the electronic control board if the ribbon is seated properly.
Finally solution, is to change the electronic control board.
Try pressing the NO HEAT DRY or AIR DRY button for 4 seconds. The light should blink then go out.
I think the first digit of your model number should be a 6 instead of a 1. 665.15812992
Post back to let me know what happens.
Most likely the problem with your dish washer is one or more pads on the control panel are shorted. To fix it the control panel has to be replaced. If you are going to do it yourself, I need the complete model number (on the door frame) and the color for the panel. Then I can find the best deal for you.
