Kenmore 30" stainless steel tub Model#665-110729120 Serial#FM2101476
Have a clean blinking light, (seven time intervals), I have tried tuning power off, to clear. No luck. I did run the hot water before all this happened.
My problem right now is to clear this light, and then to try to figure out why it happened, the control board is brand new.

Push the NORMAL WASH then HEATED DRY buttons in that sequence two to three times. The unit will enter diagnostics mode, but can be stopped by pressing the CANCEL button. This will clear any existing faults and should return the dishwasher to normal operation.

What light(s) blink? How many times to they blink? Do they blink all the time, or just when you press a key? If it's just 1 light that blinks 3 times whenever you press a key, then you have the child-lock (or control-lock) function turned on. If you look at your control console closely, you should see some key near the lock symbol (frequently the Heated Dry key), with the notation "hold 3 seconds". Press and hold that key for 3 to 4 seconds to de-activate the child-lock.
The light blinking seven times is a error code specifically it's error #7 .The E-7 error indicates the part called the flow meter is bad. To clear that error code and get the dishwasher to start push within 3 seconds HIGH TEMP WASH -HEATED DRY-HIGH TEMP WASH- HEATED DRY
then push CANCEL sereval times to dishwasher shuts off..it should start and run then
If the blinks 7 times again the flowmeter will need to be replaced
ON some models the "HIGH TEMP WASH" button is labled power scrub instead of high temp wash so in that case push POWER SCRUB-HEATED DRY-POWER SCRUB-HEATED DRY then cancel as described above
In case the E-7 error returns and the flowmeter needs to be replaced the part number for it is W10195536
Kitchen Aid models with the stainless steel tanks flashing clean light requires changing out both the heating element and the electronic control due to a change in voltage on the heating elements. By ordering the heating element, it comes with the electronic control. For your particular model it is a part #8194200. Just shop around to the different parts stores online, to get the best price. This will fix your problem.
It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing. I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information. RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell. In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
