    It ran for over two hours with moving untill I manually turned it off. Since then Ive unplugged it an manually drained out(scooped) as much water as I could.Any tips would be great. Thanks

    No, but type in "Sears Parts" and give machine information, it'll tell you.

Sounds like the timer needs replacing.
These are orderable from Sears Parts online.
I have changed two of them, and this is a difficult job.
You must dismantle the door.
I have not been able to get the automatic soap dispenser to function after I get the timer changed, so my wif e has to add the soap to the machine instead of the dispenser.
Be blessed.

    Thank you for the quick response. Any idea as to how much this part costs?

    And if it is the timer that needs replacing, shouldnt I still be able to manually move the knob to get it to drain?

My Bosch dishwasher Model #SHX4APO5UC/06 wont finish the cycle and it wont drain. We have checked hoses and they are not clogged. Is it something with the control panel?

Check your motherboard for burnt contacts. Easy to remove in the door. If you able resolder and give it a try. Cheaper then a new mother board.

My kenmore dishwasher wont start at all now. It used to start if you pushed certain buttons a bunch of times but now the lights next to most of the buttons light up but it wont start a cycle. any ideas?


Ensure that the dishwasher is connected to a working power supply. Check the local fuse or circuit breaker and restart as necessary.

Open and shut the door firmly until it latches into place. The dishwasher will not function if the door is not latched into position.

Select the desired cycle and press the cycle button firmly, as you must choose a cycle in order for the dishwasher to begin operation.

Look at the water valve that is connected to the dishwasher and ensure it is turned on.

Turn off the dishwasher and unplug it from the power supply to reset the unit. Plug it back in and select a new cycle. Select "Start." If the dishwasher still does not start, contact an authorized service technician.

Water will not drain .cycle stops , will not start even on new cycle

The water will have to be evacuated first. there may be a blockage either in the outlet of the dishwasher or the drain connection under the sink. The dishwasher tries to drain at the very start of the cycle. If this doesnt happen then a new cycle wont start.

My Dishwasher is DS603 and it stop on minutes 26 during a cycle and never continue.

Hi- sounds like your heater plate is bad. The cycle wont continue unless the water reaches a specific temperature for that point in the cycle.

When i turn my dishwasher on it runs it wont change cycles and wont wash stays in the same cycle

This sounds like a bad timer.
It could also be a defective thermostat. This problem will become apparent with the water heat option selected. Check by running the dishwasher with this option de-selected and see if it proceeds normally through the cycle.
Hope this helps.
