Hello, your water that enters the unit is directly comeing out of your wall. then is heated at a certain point in the wash cycle. So the only way to turn down the temp would be at your water heater.

My kenmore 665 started pumping hot water without ever turning machine on


You might have a bad water valve, or a bad timer (especially if this dishwasher uses a mechanical timer - one that has a rotary dial in front).

Dishwasher keeps running to long


Most likely the hot water temperature is the problem. If you have a separate hot water inlet check that the water temperature is ok. But if you only have a single cold water inlet then the heater inside dishwasher may be faulty. Check if the dishwasher is still cold when you terminate the cycle.
Heater is part 13 in this diagram.

The meaning of error code 24?


Hi, F24 error code a water temperature sensor error or enought hot water to the washer.
check to see you have both valves are turned on. Also, the water inlet valve on the washer has a screen and it is known to get clogged and restrict water flow. Turn off the hot water valve. Pull the hot water hose off where it attaches to the back of the washer.
Even if you are getting good hot water flow, inadequate water temperature can cause an F24 error code. Check the temperature setting on your hot water heater. It should be set at 120 F. You should reach this hot water temperature at your washer within about 1 minute.
If you are getting a good hot water flow, you may one of the following failures:
1 loose or dirty connection at the temperature sensor or control board.
2 The temperature sensor could be out of range. Bad or shorted sensor
3 Control board failure.

The temperature sensor should have a resistance reading of 6.6k ohms at 104 degrees F and should drop in Ohms as temperature rises,
The temperature sensor is located at the back lower section of the tub with 2 small black wires. It would require a ohm meter to measure the resistance of the sensor. .

Clean light stays on and will not run on our Kenmore 665 dishwasher.


if you have a whirlpool/ kenmore dishwasher and the clean light is flashing 7 times then pauses and then repeats, it is a problem with the heating circuit.
follow this keypad operation: push the high temp wash, air dry, high temp wash, air dry. this will put the unit into a service mode and it will run a short diagnosis cycle. after it gets done, about 5-7 minutes, then it will reset and allow you to use the unit again.
make sure the water is hot enough at your faucet at least 120 degrees, and the door is getting closed tight.

Powdered dishwasher detergent stays stuck in dispenser after wash


There is a rather delicate mechanism which controls that soap door. Often this is the first part of a dishwasher to cause trouble. Instead of using the powdered detergent in the soap holder just pour the measured amount into the floor of the machine.

Once you have used up the powder, you might wish to consider a tablet which also just gets tossed.
