My kenmore dishwasher 665.17052400 clean light is flashing 7 times. I cannot locate the tech sheet to find out what is wrong. I have reset the panel and it will run then blink again after 15 mins or so. ...

Reset the Control Panel
A power surge or outage may cause the "Clean" light to flash continuously after power is restored. Pressing the buttons on the panel in order and within 5 seconds resets the control panel and turns off the flashing light. The buttons must be pressed in the following order: "Heated Dry," "Normal Wash," "Heated Dry" and "Normal Wash." After pressing the buttons, your Kenmore dishwasher will begin a short, 12 minute test cycle and reset the control panel.

Door Switch
A broken door switch can keep a Kenmore dishwasher from operating correctly, resulting in a flashing "Clean" light. Testing the door switch requires removing the door panel to access the control panel holding the switch in place. A continuity tester can determine if the switch has failed once you remove it from the door. Replace the switch if it fails to pass the continuity test. Make sure to disconnect the electricity to the dishwasher before accessing the switch.
I hope this helps.

Error 1 on kenwood dishwasher

Manufactured by Whirlpool, Kenmore dishwashers have an electronic control panel that must be unlocked in order to set or make changes to your dishwashing cycle. If an error light is blinking on your dishwasher's control panel, the panel must be reset before you can gain access. Blinking lights on your dishwasher control panel may signal a mechanical problem that needs to be repaired. If the lights continue to blink after you've reset the control panel, contact Sears to service your Kenmore dishwasher or consider troubleshooting the appliance yourself.
1Press and hold the "Heated Dry" button on your Kenmore dishwasher for four seconds to unlock the dishwasher control panel.
2 Press the "Heated Dry," "Normal Wash," "Heated Dry" and "Normal Wash" buttons one after the other, in fairly quick succession.
3 Wait for the dishwasher to run a short diagnostic test.
4 Press the "Cancel/Drain" button at the end of the diagnostic test cycle. This should reset the control panel on your Kenmore dishwasher.

Is there a reset button for model 665.13719k600 sears dishwasher, it just stopped working

These dishwashers have a thermal fuse in the control panel. If it overheats for some reason (sometimes a bad connection on the fuse itself causes that it will turn whole machine off.

1. Disconnect power to dishwasher. Remove screws holding the control panel from the side of the inner door. Remove control panel. If it does not come off - remove all screws on the inner side of the door and separate the inner and outer door.
2. Fuse is on the right side on top of the control board. it usually has tan or black or yellow wires to it. Disconnect wires and check fuse for continuity. if none - replace fuse. Here is your part

How do I reset the kenmore ultra wash model #: 665.15812990. It has completely stopped working.


First make sure you have power to the dishwasher, breaker or fuse is good, outlet (if so equipped) is powered etc.

If you have not lost power to the dishwasher then the most likely failure that causes this would be the thermal fuse that is located in the console.

It is a temperature controlled device that can trip if there is a lot of heat in the control area.

If you want to tackle the repair it is not too difficult and requires a basic understanding of electricity and an ohmmeter.

The part number for the fuse is 675813 and is about $10.00. It is located right behind the buttons on the control panel, here is a picture of the part.
