This answer was rated:

dishwasher Kenmore 665.15654000 will not turn on for me. Lights are flashing sinultaneously on pots and pans, light cycle, rinse cycle, delay, drain/cancel buttons. tried holding down on them for several seconds. that stopped the lights but did not turn on dishwasher. when i touched heavy wash button again, the lights started flashing again. Touching cancel sometimes makes it drain. Do I need a new panel or just replace a fuse? The dishwasher just went into drain mode as I sit here and type.

Ok Lisa thanks for that, Your problem here is going to be the touch pad button/buttons have shorted, This means the control panel will need to be replaced.

To do this open the door then take all the screws out around the inner liner behind the control panel. Lift the control panel out then swap the control board and latch to the new panel (a few screws and wires)

Click here to order the new control panel

It appears no one has this part in stock so it may take a few days for you to get the replacement part.

Thanks Mike! I had a feeling it was the control panel, but I was being overly optimistic that by just pushing a button, I might resolve the problem easily. Your answer is just as easy, but my dishwasher is an older model and I might just go out and buy a black model like I wanted all along. LOL My husband wanted Bisque!! LOL Go Figure!! Thanks again!
