Question about Kenmore 24 in. 16032 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Intermittent problem, unable to select normal wash cycle/start

Intermittantly I am not able to select any wash cycle except for Smart wash and Quick Rinse. Even though I can select these cycles I can not start them. The delay button appears to work as lights flash through 2,4 and 6 when button is depressed. I can also hit the drain and the motor runs, but there is not water in the bottom of the dishwasher. I changed out the control board, and same symptoms occur.
The real baffeling part to me, is if I wait a few days, then I can select Normal Wash and it will run through fine, and maybe work a few more times, and then goes back to above symptoms.

Restart curcuit board sequence

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

'low rinse' stuck on with full rinse aid, can't start wash cycle


Actually, if you look closely at that Low Rinse button or emblem, you will see a little lock symbol ABOVE the words "Low Rinse", and I'll bet THAT light is the one that is on. Basically, you have the control lock (or child-lock) turned on. To turn it off, you have to press and hold the SANITIZE button for 3 to 5 seconds until that light goes off. Now your dishwasher will work!

Fisher washer stays on clen for over 3 hours


"Fisher washer stays on clen for over 3 hours" ???
I think you mean the "Dishwasher stays in the clean cycle for over 3 hours", right? First question is "What cycle?" If it's the Pots and Pans cycle, or "Pro-wash cycle" , or "Normal cycle with extra wash heat or sani-rinse options selected, then yes, this is normal! A Normal cycle (without added heat) will take about 2 hours. And a short or quick or 1-hour cycle will take less.

Only can use the heavy wash cycle


HELLO THERE
The cycle doesn't advance or you are unable to use one of the cycles such as light or the normal wash cycle, your problem normally is caused by a bad timer It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance.and if you set it to the normal cycle or light cycle and nothing happens Then you need to replace the timer. ok? hope this is veery helpful for you
