Customer Question
Hi, I have Kenmore Elite...
Hi, I have Kenmore Elite 66513129K703. After running it with the sani rinse option on at the end of the cycle the sani light is flashing. I have replaced the board in the last two months or so. We have a on demand water heater set to 140 degrees and run the water prior to using the dishwasher. Any thoughts ?

The sani rinse light flashing means that your touch control panel thinks there is a stuck button. This is not a problem with the board itself, it's a problem with the touch control panel. These touch panels have been completely re-designed due to steam causing them to fail ahead of time. The part number is ***** for the new panel and below is a link to the part.

Do you think it's actually just a stuck button? I'm honestly tired of throwing money at this thing. I originally thought when that light flashes it ls not getting to temp. You don't think that when we use it under smart wash the water may be cooled too much inbetween times ?
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 11 months ago

Based on the fact these these touchpads fail and it was re-designed, it wouldn't matter if it's s stuck button or not because even if you unstick the button by rubbing on it, the problem will come back shortly---that is why they had to re-design it. And no, it has nothing to do with the water cooling down between times.

Okay so I have replaced the touchpad, new control board, ran the water prior to starting the dishwasher it's at 140 degrees. End of cycle I still get a blinking Sani light ... I'm at a loss Am I missing something ?
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 11 months ago

A blinking sani light doesn't mean there is an error unless it won't clear---then it means you have a bad touchpad.

How do I clear the light ? You suggested to replace the touchpad which I did and still have the issue.
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 10 months ago

you should just be able to press cancel to reset the light. If it doesn't, then the touchpad is bad so return the touchpad and get a new one because it came faulty.

Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open and unrated. Is there anything else I can help you with?
