Question about Kenmore 24 in. 16692 Built-in Dishwasher
The key pad on this dishwasher has the following bottons:Smart Wash,Pots Pans,Normal Wash,China Gental,Quick Rinse,HiTemp Scrub,Sani Rinse,Air Dry,Start,Cancel. The dishwasher was serviced due to that it would run over two hours. Repairman replaced the Control Electronic. Ran the cycle for about ten mintues and then pushed Cancel. Has not worked after that. Repairman now tells me that the Heater element is bad. The disher washer is four years. Have tried depower and then repower with no help. Thanks for your help.

Bellman, on this model I believe you can clear the fault by pressing high temp scrub--air dry--high temp scrub--air dry in that order. Your normal cycle on this dishwasher is approx 97 minutes without the thermal holds, (pauses to heat the water to proper temps.) So of course it's going to go over 97 minutes. This is for heavy soil. Light soil, approx 89 minutes. Some models have a soil sensor, some don't. If the sensor is out of specs..it could add to long wash times. The heater may in fact be the problem, he needs to check it. The heater runs through the nuetral side of the door switch so you want to make sure the switch is closing and the dishwasher is level and secure. He also wants to check out the resistance of the thermistor, should read 48 to 52K ohms at aprox. 75 degrees. Catriver..post back.
