I have a Sears dishwasher model 665.17032402 that I bought in Nov. 2005. The clean green light keeps blinking even with the door closed or opened. When I push the normal wash cycle it lights up and than I push the start button and it blinks 3 times and shuts off. All the time this clean button is blinking and I cannot get it to stop and the washer will not run. It was running perfectly with no hint of a problem until I tried to use it last night,and it has only been used about once a week since I bought it. Can anyone tell me what to do...Thanks in advance.

** Sears [Kenmore] dishwasher model 665.17032402 **

That is a Whirlpool built model:

- Who makes Kenmore?

** When I push the normal wash cycle it lights up and than I push the start button and it blinks 3 times and shuts off. **

Is the 'lock' light on?

On some Whirlpool and Whirlpool built Kenmore dishwasher models, the clean indicator flashing 3 times when a key is pressed indicates the control is in the 'child lockout' mode (see the owner's manual). Pressing and holding the HEATED DRY button for 4 seconds on some models toggles the lock feature on and off.

JFYI

I did try holding the lock button down and it did not work. The green clean light has been and still is blinking continually. I thought that my little 19 month old grandson had pushed a button causing the problem, but I just do not know if he did, what he could have done.. I pulled the circut breaker last night hopeing that it would reset it, but that did not work either. I have lost my owners manual. I wonder if it could be the whole timer unit.

Does it blink continuously (ie. non-stop) or in some discernable pattern?

Hi Dan,

Yes it is blinking non stop, with the dooor open or shut. It blinks 3 times real fast and stop for about a second than 3 fast blinks again. I have tried everything I can think of. I pulled the circuit breaker again yesterday and counted to 10, pushed it back and the blinking began again in the same pattern. Thanks for your answers. I appreciate it.

That would NOT be nonstop to me, that would be a pattern... of 3 repeated.

I'm afraid I do not know what that might indicate, I have never come across such an indicator before. You may need to have someone out to look into it for you. Sorry.

I will do it. I think that it is the control panel. When Hurricane Katrina came through I lost everything I owned and ended up buying a new frige, electric range, washer, dryer and this dishwasher, all Kenmore, all from Sears and not the least expensive products. I hate all of them and regret buying them. I will never buy another appliance from Sears. Thanks for trying to help me.
