Question about Kenmore 24 in. 16039 Built-in Dishwasher
It is an older dishwasher Kenmore Ultrawash Quiet Guard 3 Sensor ATC Gt. I can push the Cancel/Drain button and it will respond by trying to drain I am leary of doing this because there is no water to drain and don't want it to burn up.I trip the breaker to see if a reset would work. It did not. I also held the Start button down to see if this would do a test of some sort and all it did was make the normal cycle led come on and the clean led continued to stay lit as well.

call sears, 1-800-4MY-HOME. They have a trouble-shooting department that will get rid of this problem. It is caused by water temperature being wrong at the start of the cycle.... blah, blah, blah. The representative will tell you to push a certain set of buttons in a certain order and that unlocks the dishwasher.
Sorry I don't know the sequence

Are you using rinse aid?
that may help with the film.you may also have stuff down in the trap causing the water to drain slow.

Not draining may either need new drain motor. or something is blocking the drain pipe.
Spots on dishes means you are using to much detergent or the wrong kind of detergent.
Your owners manuel should tell you what type to use.

Remove the kick plate, there is a box where the power enters on right, If you have power than its most likely the control board. We have em and will assist you on the phone 704-819-6557

I have a very similar dishwasher, with a very similar problem. I fixed it by removing debris from the water evacuator pump located towards the front of the bottom of the machine (the last motor before the drain hose. In my case, grape stems had clogged it up. Once emptied, it purrs once again. NOTE: don't disassemble the motor, just flush it out, there is an o-ring gasket that is a bear to re-install.
