I am having the same issue as described above. I think it is either the timer, thermostat (temp assure), or thermostat (temp boost) that needs replacing. The dial gets stucks in both the wash temp boost cycle and rinse temp boost cycle. However, I don't have a picture of the temp assure or boost part. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks. -Bill

Kenmore dishwasher model #665 15872000 is stuck on time saver option for washing and I can't get it to switch to any of the other options such as normal wash

Similar Kenmore Dishwasher 665.18664000. Time saver and Quick rinse were the only programs that would run. I pressed "high temp scrub" then "air dry" then "high temp scrub" then "air dry" and the machine went into a diagnostic mode and counted down from 10 while running a series of tests. After about 10 minutes and various test cycles the machine reset and the "normal wash" light had come back on. If this doesn't work then you may have a problem with the controller which other threads have mentioned replacing yourself for about $120.

if no rinse agent is present it doesnt matter how hot the water gets they will still not dry check unit make sure it is full. rinse agent is only to aid the drying process the machine will wash happily without it but not dry.

Blinking Quick Rinse

brent, After doing a little research on this model, I see that Sears put out a service flash concerning this problem. Dishwasher stops in mid cycle and one or more of the lights are flashing. SF22-715. The correction is to replace the existing board with an updated board that controls the line voltage better. Part number 8530928. You could be covered under this flash. The tech will have to eliminate the possibility of a stuck or shorted keypad which will cause this same effect. You can try to get this back in operation by pressing in this order: high temp wash-air dry-high temp wash-air dry. This will put it into a self test mode. Just let it run through if it works. If you don't have those keys try power scour-air dry-power scour-air dry. back.
