Hey, owners of Kenmore Elite Ultra Wash Dishwashers Models 665.1726* -- READ the suggestions here about dealing with the flashing green "clean" light indicating a malfunction. I had emptied the dishwasher two days ago and wondered why some of the top items weren't dry -- but proceeded to start reloading without much thought of it until tonight when it was time to run it! Naturally, I discovered that the "clean" green light flashing meant a malfunction and I was resigned to washing things manually until I could contact Sears next week. First, I checked the dishwasher itself and retrieved a knife and a plastic clamp from the bottom which had both worked themselves under the heat coil. Then I turned the circuit breaker off and on (but not long enough I guess,) but it still wouldn't start.
Finally headed to my computer and lo and behold, the suggestions on this website about pushing the "hi temp wash" and "heated dry" buttons worked! All the lights came on, the system reset itself -- and I'm now washing a load of very dirty dishes again~!
Thanks, all, for sharing your experiences that work! I'm so happy!
