Question about Dishwashers
I have a Kenmore Ultra Wash Quiet Guard 3 dishwasher. The Quick Rinse light keeps blinking, and none of the other buttons work except for the Cancel/Drain button. When you push the Cancel button, the 4 hours light turns on, but it doesn't do anything else. How do I reset the buttons? I have tried all the sequences found on this website (Hi Temp Scrub then Sani Rinse and also Hi Temp Scrub then Air Dry), but none of them worked. I have the following buttons available: Smart Wash, Pots Pans, Normal Wash, China Gentle, Quick Rinse, Hi Temp Scrub, Sani Rinse, and Air Dry/Lock On - along with Delay Hours, Cancel/Drain, and Start. Please help! Any advice will be much appreicated. Thanks!
I had the same flashing light problem first the normal wash flashing light then the others. I tried shuting of the breakers but nothing. I tried resetting the panel by pushing normal wash and heated dry simultaneously and nothing. So I took the six screws holding the front panel out and unplugged the ribbon type wires and plug and unplugged it several times to help make a better contact and I was able to get it to work right away. This may not work for all but I worked for me. It is very easy to do and it's worth a try if you're having the same problem. It took me less then 10 minutes.

My guess is that the foil that the buttons are mounted to is defective. The control module "reads" the buttons that are pushed by the fact that the resistance between two pins on the circuitboard becomes zero ie. your pushing the button shorts out two pins. the foil could have moistire damage or the resiistance of the tracks could be too high. Solution for both would be to replace the control panel button foil.
