    I'm sorry if I didn't make it clear ... the power to the machine is good, nothing broken burnt or loose.
    I checked the wires @ the junction box before I asked for help.

Hi jimills13,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: Stopped with water in the basin... will not respond to any bottons being pushed tried diagnostic button dance ...nothing Checked power to the machine= good what is the next step. replace parts?

Gosh no. 9 times out of 10 the problem is loose, brocken or burnt wire connetion in d/w junction box. Turn off power to unit. Remove bottom kick plate. On right you'll find box held on with one screw. Remove and take apart wire nuts. Replace/repair as nessessary. Turn power on and test d/w before replacing box and plate(you may have more to do). Be carefull!

    Hi again jimills13,



    In that case It's probly the control board, usually located in the top section of the door panel. I don't recomend this repair to the average homeowner. You might consider the Repair Directory for a repairman.



    Feel free contact me again!
    Thank you,

How do I get error code f2e2 off my dishwasher?


"F2 - A water leak, which if detected will stop water from entering the dishwasher via the inlet valve. You will probably experience the dishwasher not filling properly during a cycle. Possibly caused by a faulty water level indicator, you can also try cleaning the filters and drain if you notice a lot of standing water remaining in the dishwasher basin."

"Look in the bottom of the unit. Something has it stuck, like food."

sorry if this doens't solve your problem. This is what turned up with your keywords in a quick search engine query.

My Kenmore Ultra Wash model 665 Dishwasher stopped working. It won't turn on and some water in the bottom won't drain although there is no sign of a clog, and it's not unplugged.


It is supposed to be hardwired and not plugged in. In which case it could have thrown a breaker and you would not know it unless you used a test light, or reset all the breakers (often you can't visually tell when a breaker it tripped).
There may also a reset on the motor itself that you need to push.

Water flow does not stop.


The water inlet valve has gone bad. Depending on what the water was either hot or cold I would be safe and just replace both of them. You can get them at your local appliance store or at repairclinic.com. They are located behind the back panel of the washing machine right where the hoses connect to the unit

Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher Problem


there is no real way of checking the keypad. Not with a meter but if you push normal wash for example and it does not respond this usually means that you have a bad keypad

I just read this for the same problem: push sanitize, then heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, cancel, then open and close the door. It worked. The dishwasher is running correctly even as I type this.
