    Did you double check the sticker in the dishwasher for why there is more than 11 numbers in the model number?

    I'm sorry about the technical difficulty with the chat. It cut me off and I do not know how to get it back!
    Send me the model number after you checked it and i'll find your solution anyway like this!

    Hello Roger,

    Your dishwasher does
    not work at all.

    So I put together a
    list of four common problems for the total shut down of your Kenmore

    Burnt or broken

    Check for burnt or broken wires. This would include the
    wires on the timer and door switch. Also check the wiring connection where the
    main power connects to the machine.

    Defective Timer

    The timer is a series of switches that controls all machine
    functions. If one of the contacts in the timer is defective, the machine will
    lose that function. knowledge of the the use of a vol/tohmmeter is essential to
    testing the timer as well as the ability to read the timer sequence chart that
    is supplied with the machine. In most cases this requires a professional

    Door switch

    The door switch is wired in series with all components on
    the machine. If the door switch is defective, the machine will do nothing.
    Check the door switch for continuity.

    No Electrical

    Ensure that the proper voltage is being supplied to the
    appliance. Check the breakers or fuses that are supplying the power to the
    appliance electrical outlet. You can use a voltmeter to test for voltage at the
    electrical outlet.

    Control panel may
    be shorting out and need to be replaced

    Unfortunately at this
    point it will need hands on service with a on location diagnostic to determine
    which of these four problems exist.

    I want to apologize again
    for the crash of our chat this evening!

    I forwarded a report
    and complaint to of this occurrence!

    Sincerely, Huuum

    Feel free to request
    me and or contact me any time!

Can't turn on TV not on standby

Hi Dave,
You have not mentioned anything about the brand and model of your tv. Anyway, If your remote control is working and your tv is not turning on means either the main board is not supplying "power on" command to the power supply section or the power supply is receiving this command but not responding to it. Please consult some local TV tech to solve your problem.
Good luck.

I just installed a Kenmore Elite Dishwasher. The Dishwasher will not run and is not responding toany commands. I checked the powersource and water supply to the Dishwasher and everything is working fine....

If there is an assembly manual, check it! There are sometimes hold downs and protective strips placed on the machine at the factory to prevent tampering. There is probably one that is stopping the power from reaching the control panel. It may even be in the control panel!

Am having problems with a 347002k, we have this recycler for some time and have replaced even the compressor. I think we need the digital control board with the input command (where you input the steps)....

You may did something wrong with your machine! Please try the following: 1# Switch ON the main power.2# Re-set (booth) circuit breaker (press booth breaker at the same time) & see if the screen is appear.3# If the screen is not appear after re-setting circuit breaker then you have to replace new control module.Hope this will help you.

Sony MW24FM1 either won't respond to DVD commands, or turn-off

Sounds like a bad power board. They have random meltdowns all too often. Usually the cause is an overheated transformer caused by power transistor short outs. Possibly sell it. Could get over $100 for it if sold online.
