My dishwasher is stuck on the normal wash selection, but will not start when you push the start button. The normal wash button is lit up, so I assume it has power, but I cannot change the selection to another option. there is nothing in the digital read-out (how much time is left on the cycle, CL, etc.) Only the normal wash button is lit. I do not know the exact model number.

Re: Won't start, can't change wash selections
can you tell me if you can hear the motor running? if not
did you trip the house breaker? if not
can you open the door? if not
it's the door latch; if yes
is there water on the bottom of the dishwasher? if yes
you are not draining and the dishwasher lost power; if not
the timer is not advancing to the next cycle

It sounds like you have a bad control console, and the problem is that your START button (the most critical one!) is bad. You can't replace just that button or key; you have to replace the entire control console.
Hi just read your posting.The problem could be a faulty dispenser coil ,or the wires to it are faulty or the computer is faulty.Try selecting a normal eco wash and when you push the start button to start the machine hold the button in until the pre wash light turns off.This should make the dispenser activate straight after it fills.The only way to test which part is faulty is with an electrical meter.Have you or can you borrow one.If so then I can guide you step by step in finding the fault.please reply with additional information and I am sure I can help you further.Looking forward to your reply.
we have a 4 yr. old built in dishwasher,model #665-15812,the lock-on light is blinking,and the wash and rinse lights are on,but if we push start ,it won't,and if we push the clear button,it won't clear,it's like it's stuck ....we've tried un-plugging,etc....any ideas,on what to do??? donnie-sue79
push start hold down air dry and start until lights blink and machine starts then it should work normal
most dishwashers have an instruction booklet behind the botton panel that is nearest the floor you wll have to remove the panel it has a couple of screws. the booklet should be there unless installer took it.
If you omly replaced the front panel board then you may have to replace the circuit board inside the door. It works like a mother board in a computer. Good luck
I had the same problem but I found someone wh said that there is a way to reset the dishwasher. I tried it and it has worked so far.
Here is what I did.
Push the Hi-temp and then push the Sani-rinse. Go back and forth multiple times on these two buttons. I found that after a handfull of pushes that a "1" came up on the display. I continued to keep rotating the two buttons and then a "2" came up on the display and the dishwater started it's "drain" phase. I then hit cancel to clear and then I selected the cycle I wanted. The washer started up just as normal at this point.
