Question about Kenmore 13742 / 13744 / 13749 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Control panel buttons no longer work.

Starting a couple of weeks ago, when I pushed "Normal" wash, no buttons would light, but when I pushed "Start" my usual settings lit. But the other day, nothing would work, and still doesn't. The circuit breaker is on. The door seems to be locked. I turned the circuit breaker off and back on, but that did no good. No button will light when I push it and the unit does not start. Any suggestions?

Hello ...

I tried to look up your model numbers here (usa)...
with no success... (Kenmore 13742 / 13744 / 13749)

I rarely (ever) suggest owners go direct to Sears...
but this would seem to be.. appropriate...

(I my opinion they are rude & pushy to sell parts
(good news ... here... their guaranteed fit/fix)).

Before doing so...


Check your water, drain & power at the appliance.

With the breaker turned of...

open the appliance cord JUNCTION BOX and assure the
wiring devices (usually "wire nuts") are still tight and secure.

Finding nothing... you are at the UNHAPPY JUNCTURE
where you need to use SEARS PARTS DIRECT...

SOURCE: Dryer won't Start

the problem might be the start switch itself. if the switch is going bad it could have either a carbon buildup on the contacs preventing it from starting (unlikely) or the contacs are wearing out and it is more hit or miss if it will start. as time goes on the problem will get wose

SOURCE: dryer will not start.. Here clicking sound when i push start button but nothing happens

Did you clean the lint screen and replace? Also - all lint should be cleaned from back of dryer and the duct...many dryer manufacturer have safety sensors that will not light dryer due to there being too much lint, not enough air flow...(safety feature) ...

SOURCE: Lock light stuck on, dishwasher will not work

We had turned the power off at the breaker but only flicked it on and off, a friend recommended we turn off the power and leave it off for 5 minutes then turn it back on. This solved the entire problem!

Electrolux dishwasher not completing wash cycle and all lights flashing on door control panel and the 'wash pump' error light behind the lower kick space panel was flashing.


Good Morning friend, thanks for your post!

After researching the issue you are having with your Electrolux dishwasher it is possible that resetting your appliance may help. I would disconnect power from your dishwasher by unplugging it or flipping the household breaker for roughly ten minutes. If this does not resolve your issue I would recommend seeking assistance from a professional to properly diagnose and repair your dishwasher. -T

Hi


If you have replaced the control panel then it is the electronic control board that is bad and should be replaced. If you have replaced the electronic control board then check the door latch, it can be due to the latch & control not operating. Hope this helps...please post back with its model no. for further assistance.

It seems to be the program controller and you will have to get this checked. Remove the power off for some time and reset it back . If the programs are not responding then you will need to check from the power cord to the control panel to see if this is working and can give hte output with the required inputs when the program is selected.
So does the water go in , if not the controller is faulty.

Control board malfunctioning.


You can try tripping the breaker a half dozen times or so, or else leave it unplugged/without power for a couple days. Once it is plugged back in you may have to leave it overnight and then try it, but that almost always revives it. I notice the problem when I don't use the washer/dryer once a week or don't push any buttons during that time to activate it in some way. Problem seems to occur more frequently in the winter when house is cooler.

Anussi ZWD 1271W stops at beginning of program


Hi,

Did you fix this problem? We have the same with Zanussi ZWD 1472 W. It takes some water and stops after 2 minutes. We need to shut machine down and fill water manually. It works fine then.

Intermittent problem, unable to select normal wash cycle/start


restart curcuit board sequence

push start hold down air dry and start until lights blink and machine starts then it should work normal

most dishwashers have an instruction booklet behind the botton panel that is nearest the floor you wll have to remove the panel it has a couple of screws. the booklet should be there unless installer took it.
If you omly replaced the front panel board then you may have to replace the circuit board inside the door. It works like a mother board in a computer. Good luck

Dishwasher flashes on Fast Wash


I am hoping I have just fixed mine with same problem. Couple weeks ago started stopping at start of cycle with fast button flashing. Check filters so one on top of unside machine and one on tap if you have one on there. Mine were blocked but still wouldnt work. I pulled out machine to find a kink in the water pipe. I have straightened this out and up to now its working. Fast button flashing refers to water inlet problem.

Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher - Blinking Quick Rinse Light


I had the same flashing light problem first the normal wash flashing light then the others. I tried shuting of the breakers but nothing. I tried resetting the panel by pushing normal wash and heated dry simultaneously and nothing. So I took the six screws holding the front panel out and unplugged the ribbon type wires and plug and unplugged it several times to help make a better contact and I was able to get it to work right away. This may not work for all but I worked for me. It is very easy to do and it's worth a try if you're having the same problem. It took me less then 10 minutes.
