Why is my Kenmore dishwasher blinking the clean light 7 times?

I have a Kenmore dishwasher model number 665.17033400. The green light on the clean button blinks seven times then pauses and blinks 7 times then pauses. The only cycle that will run is the drain cycle. I have shut the power off to it to reset but that did not help. What is wrong and how can I fix it?

you can check for a heater element fault, but more than likely, you're screwed and will be into random part replacement untill it gets to the point of just buying a new d/w.

good luck getting a competent service tech to try and correctly diagnose and then fix the problem. Sears has a tech company that is absolutly terrible.

they are so unhelpful.

you know it's bad when the 'service tech' says' you know more about this than i do'
