    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
    dishwasher.



    Burnt or broken
    wires



    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
    technician.


    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
    power



    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 fixya.com of this occurrence!






    Sincerely, Huuum


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

Kenmore Dishwasher Model 665.16719000 pushpad buttons lights flashing and won't work.


Press "high temp wash, heated dry, High temp wash, heated dry, high temp wash, heated dry, high temp wash, heated dry, high temp wash"

All the lights will go solid at which point you press cancel to reset the board.

**NOTE** if you don't have a "heated dry" button, use the "air dry" or "energy saver dry" button instead.

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!

Kenmore elite dishwasher model 665.13852K601 The clean button is blinking and will not cancel


It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors or feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/PUMP MOTOR/DRAIN to work when it is commanded .If this does not happen then the voltage at these points must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage/drive from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

Make sure that the control pads are working , if there is moisture then use a heater to dry and test.

Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.

Dishwasher stopped working. Suspect electronics issue.


An expert from another site says it's a faulty control panel and may need new actuators.
