    My dishwasher (Kenmore Quietguard Std #587.16252402) was working fine until I opened it in the middle of the washing cycle and when I closed and latched the door, it would not continue(as it has a few times before.)



    I hit cancel and the LED's all went off and it did not drain. I hit cancel again and no change. I hit cancel again and the washing LED along with the other LED's that were originally set, come back on.



    I did notice that if I let it go, it would go through the motions without actually working(the LED's would change and eventually it would claim to be clean.) If I tried to start a new wash, it would go right back to stating it was in the wash cycle - go to second paragraph and continue reading ;-)



    Disconnecting power had no effect.



    How does one reset this beast(button combinations??)



    TIA.

    I have the same problem. I have tried disconnecting and reconnecting the control panel and have also turned the breaker off and back on again. Nothing has worked.

I have a kenmore dishwasher 587 model. It went through a wash, the clean light is on I unload the dishes and it won't run again unless I use the breaker in the basement. I tried holding down the heat...


It might be a safety switch on the heater in there, most of the time they usually only reset after the temperature has dropped but some will reset with the power being cycled. I am furnace repair man myself, and that's what I'd suspect. Either that or there is some other safety switch that is locking it out that only resets with the power being shut off.

Getting no power to Kenmore Quiet Guard 587-16163401


Of course, theck the power supply the dishwasher is plugged into. The next place to check is the junction box on the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the toe kick panel. If everything is okay there, then it is probably the thermal fuse located inside the door, attached to the dishwasher controller. If you need a new thermal fuse, you can check SearsPartsDirect.com, RepairClinic.com, EasyApplianceParts.com, or AppliancePartsPros.com.

Dishwasher has ran fine for about 2 weeks now.. its new.Suddenly after last load , all the dishes and the entire inner compartment have a terribly heavy cloudy film on them. Cause and solution? same load...


Hi.
Check the drain well, replace the salt, and ensure that you are using the right detergent , as specified on manual.

Also check the drain hose and inlet hose at the back of the appliance.

If all this is OK, rather that attempting repair, call Kenmore at the number listed on the owners manual.

They will send you a technician at home free of charge, since the machine is new, and it has two years warranty, it is not worth attempting any repair that can invalidate warranty.

Talk to Kenmore first.

Only if you choose to think so. I have seen old equipment in better shape that much younger vintage stuff! It depends on how much use it has had and if it has been run to the max with heavy loads to the point of making the machine beat itself up prematurely.

587 Doesn't work well


AS ABOVE SUGESTION ...PROBUBLY NOT GETTING ENOUGH WATER. NOT LIKELY THE FAULT OF THE DISHWASHER PROBUBLY SEDIMENT FROM THE WATER PLUGED THE INLET SCREEN OF THE FILL VALVE. MANY TIMES THE MOVING OF A FLEXIBLE PLUMBING LINE BRAKES LOOSE ANY SEDIMENT AND DEPOSIT DURING THE INSTALATION OF A NEW DISHWASHER WHICH IS WHY MOST ADVISE REPACING THIS SMALL FLEXIBLE LINE WHEN INSTALLING A NEW DISHWASHER. YOU WILL HAVE TO DIS ASSEMBLE VALVE TO CLEAN SCREEN ...IF YOU BOUGHT THE PROTECTION AGREEMENT OR HAD SEARS INSTALL IT THEY SHOULD COVER A SERVICE CALL TO CLEAN THE VALVE.

Dishwasher fills but doesn't spray


Ron, sounds like you are not getting power to the motor or the motor itself is bad. This model has a seperate drain motor which we know is working because it drains. Now this is for a model starting with 587. If you remove the toe panel you will see the wash motor on the left. It will have a harness that you can pull off. After the dishwasher fills you want to see if you have 120V going to the motor. Check it with a meter. If you have voltage there and the wash motor is not working, either it's bad or something is stopping the impeller. If you don't have voltage there then it's a problem with the control. You would want to make sure all the harness are connected. I'm hoping your model starts with 587. Otherwise this is all for not....Catriver...post back

Kenmore Dishwasher #587.... doing nothing but heat dry


The problem appears to stem from the float and float switch. The float is a mushroom shaped plastic part that resides on the bottom left, just inside the door. It appears that the float does not release the float switch, causing the dishwasher to think it is full of water, and won't allow the dishwasher to fill. It's a relatively straight forward repair, but even with a new part, the same scenario is likely to repeat itself until the float or float switch is modified by Kenmore.

Under cycle setting the quick rinse light keeps flashing and dishwasher does not run.


Hey Jim, if your model starts with 665 there was a service flash on this unit concerning your problem. SF-22-715. Dishwasher stops in mid cycle. The control board was redesigned to eliminate this problem. The service flash states that if only one indicator light is blinking it's usually a stuck or shorted keypad. I would check with Sears and see if you are covered under this service flash. Catriver...post back.
