Why does the LOCK ON light keep blinking on my Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher Model 665.15779?

Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher Model 665.15779 LOCK ON light blinking on control panel, unable to use washer. If buttons were locked, LOCK ON light should be lit continually not flashing. If you press and hold NO HEAT DRY button to disengage lock, nothing happens. If you press the CANCEL button it begins to blink in unison with the LOCK ON light. How can I stop the light from blinking to allow button function again?

Can you explain how this works? My washer is the Kenmore 655 Ultra. I took the control panel apart today. Behind the lock light is simply a ribbon and it's not even that close to the outside "button". It doesn't make sense how the nail trick would do anything. I'm desperate so I may try it, but I'd love to understand. Thanks!
