Why does Kenmore dishwasher stays in washing/sensing cycle after replacing heating element coil?

Kenmore dishwasher model 665.16519200. We replaced the heating element coil with part W10134009. The original had corroded in half. We removed the dishwasher, removed the old coil, replaced with the new coil and put the dishwasher back. The tub will fill and can be drained by hitting the cancel button. The water does reach 120 degrees. After 1 1/2 hours the washing/sensing lights were both still on. The soap dispenser had opened, but dishes were dirty. Do we need to reset something?
