thermal cutoff will cut power supply to control,if you still have flashing lights,i doubt the t.c.o.,there is an issue with the heating element that causes the machine to shut down and the lights to flash. it is also possible your machines control has become locked in some mode(child lok,diagnostic,etc.),cut off the power to the unit,fetch the tech sheet from the kickpanel and have you a good read. after a period of time,restoring power may reset it,otherwise,examine techsheet for more detailed info.

Since this has the Kenmore name on it we cannot pull up any information, however since this is made by Whirlpool, this possibly could apply to your unit, but we have no way of knowing.
