Without a model number, it is difficult to provide you with specific advice regarding this problem. On most Kenmore Elite dishwashers, this problem could be caused by a failed control console or a bad electronic control board. Some models have a favorite cycle feature that will light up the previously used cycle automatically. If you are not able to select a different cycle, then you could have a control board that is frozen on that particular cycle. You may try
shutting off the breaker
to completely disconnect electrical power to the dishwasher for 5 minutes. Turn the breaker back on and see if the control will work properly. If you still have problems, I recommend that you resubmit your question with additional details and the full model number of your Kenmore Elite dishwasher. We will be glad to help you further with this problem once we have the model number.
