Why does the Normal Wash light on my Kenmore dishwasher keep blinking?
I have a Kenmore Elite dishwasher (model # 665.13852K601). The Normal Wash light blinks continuously. If I hit the Cancel button it also blinks until I pull the plug. I've also tried many different and varying "reset" codes or key combinations, but these do absolutely nothing and my dishwasher does not enter the Diagnostic Mode. Can anyone help me and tell me what might be wrong? Thanks very much.

This normally indicates that a key is stuck on the control console. It is likely that you will need to replace the control console to fix this problem. You may be able to complete this repair yourself. You can order a new control console from the Sears PartsDirect website. The part number for the white color of console (your model number indicates your dishwasher is white) is 8572839. This part costs $76.82 not including tax, shipping and handling.
The procedure for accessing and replacing the control console is shown in the image below. Be sure that you shut off the breaker to disconnect electrical power before accessing this internal component. If you are not completely confident that you can safely complete this repair, I recommend calling a service technician to fix the dishwasher.
If you replace the control console and have the same problem, you will also need to replace the electronic control board.
