Re: Kenmore Model 587 -- Will not run - Power lights...
Hello I am V- Mari and i own a Kenmore dishwasher model Number 587.1574590 and it doesn't work at all. The power light comes on and it seems to make noise, but it does nothing. Is there a recall for these models or free fix help please respond to email@example.com. I would like to solve my dishwasher problems as soon as possible. Thank you!

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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
