Check the breaker in your breaker box, it may have tripped. Reset it and run the dishwasher. If it trips again, have the dishwasher looked at by a professional service person.

SOURCE: kenmore dishwasher ultra was quiet guard 3 model

that would be model # 66516012403 correct??
you may have inadvertently set the lock on function..
check this out from your manual...

Lock On
Use the Lock On to prevent unintended use of the dishwasher
between cycles. You can also use the lock feature to prevent
unintended cycle or option changes during a cycle.
When LOCK ON is lit, all buttons are disabled.
NOTE: The dishwasher door can be opened while the controls
are locked. However, the lock must be turned off and the Start/
Resume button pressed to resume the cycle.
To turn on the Lock
Press and hold HEATED DRY for 4 seconds. LOCK ON glows.
If you press any pad while your dishwasher is locked, the light
flashes 3 times.
NOTE: If the Heated Dry option is selected, the light will
temporarily turn off until Lock On glows.
To turn off the Lock
Press and hold HEATED DRY for 4 seconds. The light turns off.

hope this helps,
best of luck,
ttfn

SOURCE: Kenmore ultra wash dishwasher control lock light flashing

Hi jabberr216,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: You have an older model Kenmore ultra wash dishwasher model #15805890. The control lock light is flashing. No buttons are working. The dishwasher does not turn on. Any solutions?

Sure! Someone must have activated the lock. It is next to either the 'air dry' or 'heated dry' button.
Press and hold that button till the lock light goes out. About 6 seconds. That's it. It turns on the same way.

Feel free contact me again!

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite Dishwasher- The touchpad

I have a Kenmore Elite model 665.15962990. I have had it for 8 years. A few days ago the touch panel seemed to go dead and so did the LED. After pushing the buttons several times the motor kicked on, but the washer behaved strangely. The LED displayed what looked like Klingon.

After looking through the Repair Parts Lists with its exploded view of the washer components, I narrowed the problem down to either the power module (part # 9744031), the console assembly which includes the button touchpad (part # [white = 3384101], [bisque = 3384150], [black = 3384100]), or the dual light display a.k.a. LED (part # 3383825).

I took the washer apart because I was told I can't return the power module and it costs roughly $150 at my local appliance repair shop. In looking at everything, the power module is the most likely candidate. The LED is a separate unit and is powered by the power module. The buttons are the same way. Since both of those separate components are behaving strangely, my best guess is the power module is not powering either of them correctly.

Also I found this link: http://www.askmehelpdesk.com/appliances/kenmore-dishwasher-not-working-all-27100.html

I hope this helps someone.

SOURCE: kitchen aide dishwasher KUD101IL control panel not working

1. Check plug outlet.
2. Check electrical box underneath the d/w where power cord connected to d/w (you have to take the kick panel off . The box located on right side). Sometime you can find burn wire there.
3. Check the thermal fuse on computer board. It is inside the control panel on right hand side. The fuse has 2 white plastic connector which sticks out, easy to find.

most likely you have a bad motor when replacing the motor ihave found it is cheaper to get the pump with the motor attached where as they charge you more money for just the motor or the pump seprately try allbrands appliance parts they seem to be cheaper

Could be a windshile leak down the A-Pillar & water

My dishwasher (Model # FDB520RHB0) is not quite 2 years old. We had the water pump replaced a few months ago because it had been making a grinding noise. Then we tried to run it a few days ago and it...


Did you check the outlet with a voltmeter? If you did and have 120Volts then it sounds like your latch switch could be defective which would kill the power to the unit.

But remember that in most houses that the outlet under the sink is wired for a garbage disposal where the top outlet is controled by a switch and the bottom one is wired for the dishwasher.

My toshiba laptop will not turn on...


This could be a few things. It could be a bad power cord not charging the battery or the machine. But it could also be various other things. The cheapest and easiest thing to try is a new power adapter.

Kenmore undercounter dishwasher quiet guard


Presuming that your circuit breaker is not tripped and you have power to the dishwasher, it appears that your thermo fuse is blown. You can replace it for around $20. It comes in a kit form or you can replace the thermo fuse for around $1. The part number is NTE 8096 Thermo Fuse 98 degrees Celsius and solder it in yourself. It is located on the circuit board that contains all the relays and the main computer chip. It clips on and off.
