I have the same problem. I am able to get it working by shutting breaker off overnight. It seems to reset itself and will work for a short period (a few days), then go back to flashing child lock. Experts tell me to replace the entire control panel (cost $200 for non-stainless/$328 for stainless).
We have also stopped closing the door tight, which in effect cuts power to the panel. That gives us some reprieve. Am hoping another person can offer a better solution, such as a new circuit card.

The CHILD LOCK light came on and I cant get it off. Pressing CANCEL does nothing. How do I fix it?


Usually you need to press and hold a button or a pair of buttons to toggle the Child Lock function. Without the model number of your dishwasher, I can't be sure if this will work on your machine. It did work on the old Kitchenaid I had. Press and hold the Energy Saver/Dry button for 4+ seconds. If the light goes out, you have released the front panel lock.

On some models, you needed to press and hold the Air Dry button. However, you may need to look for writing in a small font that will indicate the correct button/key combination to release the front panel lock.

If pressing the appropriate button for an extended time doesn't work, then your keypad may need to be replaced. The signal isn't being received by the control of the dishwasher. (Alternatively, the wiring between the keypad and control unit or control unit, itself, may have an issue.)

I hope this helps.

How do I stop Lights flashing


You may have the child-lock or control-lock function activated. Or if you have the short-cycle activated, you will not be able to activate the high-temp or sani-wash functions, because the dishwasher will not have time to heat the water to the required temperature.

How do I shut my panel off for my kenmore presicion dishwasher with quiet guard


First turn off the child-lock or control-lock function. Usually this is done by holding down a particular key 3 to 5 second. The key to press is usually marked, but in very tiny (or light-gray) print.

Child Lock on or Flashing Energy Saver Dry


I suspect that the cycle "button" on the control panel is intermittent.  Try using a different cycle - If you always use "short wash", try the "normal" cycle.
This worked for me.  It will be too expensive to repair, so I am dishwasher shopping.

Control Lock means that the entire dishwasher is locked, for child safety purposes.  It's normally cleared by holding the "No Heat Dry" button in for 4 seconds or more.  It is locked again by the same procedure -- holding the "No HEat Dry" button for 4 seconds (or more).

Kenmore dishwasher Lock-On light flashing, will not start


Push the heated/dry button on the dishwasher for 4 seconds and that will unlock the dishwasher. This is just a safety feature that allows you to lock the dishwasher to stop kids from pushing buttons.
If that doesn’t’ work they will send out a tech to fix it.
