Try resetting the board first by unplugging for a few hours. It's like rebooting your computer. This will load fresh code into the board. If it persists, it's a board issue.

I am trying to clean earthen pottery plates in my dish washer and after washing half of the plates disappear.


The Kenmore PRO also has an Ultra Wash Filtration High Energy Filtration System that helps the majority of us with hard water. It features 2 spray arms, and a Turbozone that blasts away the most gunked up items you can make a mess on.

The Kenmore PRO also features 6 cycles. The High Energy Smart Wash Cycle is the most advanced and versatile. It actually senses the load size, soil amount, toughness of soil and uses minimal water and energy. The Smart Wash Cycle runs from 110 minutes to a max of 194 depending on toughness of soil and uses from 4.2 gallons of water to 6.9.

The Pots Pans Cycle also makes some adjustments depending on soil level and takes from 140 minutes to 203 minutes to complete. It uses 4.8 to 6.9 gallons of water.

There is also a self-adjusting Normal Cycle that runs from 110 minutes to 193 minutes and uses 4.2 gallons to 6.9 gallons of water.

The Kenmore PRO also has a self-adjusting China Gentle Cycle that provides a light wash and gentle dry for delicate items and runs from 105 minutes to 194 minutes and uses 4.2 gallons to 6.9 gallons of water.

It also has a 1 Hour Wash that runs for 58 minutes and uses 8.0 gallons of water and a 15 minute Quick Rinse Cycle that uses 2.1 galllons of water.

The Kenmore PRO also has 5 other options that are additional to the Cycles. Each option adds time and water to the selected cycle. They are:

TurboZone, HI Temp Wash which raises the water temperature to 120 degrees F, a Steam Sanitize which raises the final rinse to 155 degrees F, a Top-Rack Only Option, and a Heated Dry Option.

The Kenmore PRO also has a Delay Option that allows you to run the dishwasher on off-peak hours and delays the start time up to 6 hours.

I have not field-tested all these options yet, becaue I am such a skeptic -- and picky about my dishes, I usually go ahead and always use the TurboZone, the Hi-Temp Wash, the Steam Sanitizer, and the Heated Dry Option. But, hey if you are plunking down $1500 for a dishwasher--you should make use of all your options. I'll keep this review up-to-date as my dates with the Kenmore PRO progress with dinner parties and my very precious china, but for now (mostly because of the "ClangBanger") our good china is safely stored in the cabinets.

I need to know what the buttons say on the dishwasher. Mine have no letters


Hi,

Some SHX46 washers have 4 wash cycle buttons and others have 5. The button on the left side on top of the door is the start/stop button regardless of how many wash cycle buttons you have.


If you have 5 cycle buttons, reading from left to right they will be as follows.

1. Top Rack Only / Sanitize
2. Power Scrub Plus - (Long wash for heavy soil)
3. Regular Wash - (Economy wash for light to medium soil)
4. Delicate Wash - (Shorter wash at a lower temperature for delicate items)
5. Rinse & Hold.

These buttons are also used for cancelling a wash cycle. Hold down buttons 2 and 4 (Power Scrub Plus and Delicate) at the same time to cancel a wash cycle and drain the water out.

If your washer does have 4 buttons, it means you don't have a Top Rack / Sanitize cycle, in which case the button configuration - from left to right - will be:

1. Power Scrub Plus - (Long wash for heavy soil)
2. Regular Wash - (Economy wash for light to medium soil)
3. Delicate Wash - (Shorter wash at a lower temperature for delicate items)
4. Rinse & Hold.

With this button configuration, the cancel cycle buttons are 1 and 3.


I hope this solves your problem. If you need any additional information, please post back.

Regards,
BElectric

How can I reduce the time needed for a wash ? It takes 2 hours is there any way to make it less ?


Most machines have a soil level selection (light / normal / heavy) and if you select light soil level the wash time is reduced. Also, some machines have a " Quick Cycle " which cuts a lot of time off, which should only be used with lightly soiled clothing. Additionally, make sure you have adequate water pressure, and that the inlet screens are clear so that the cycle is not delayed essesivly due to slow water fill. Regardless of all these, the higher spin speeds of a front loading machine (those have the longest wash times, due to the low water use and the tumbling wash action used vs an agitator in a top load machine) will result in reduced dryer run time, thus helping to reduce the overall time a load takes to wash and dry. (although still longer than most top loading sets) Generally, the energy savings and larger load sizes will outweigh the extra time the machines take.

Soil level light cycles by itself.


unplug the machine. take the computer broad out of the control switches. Clean the resadue off both sides of the broad, with a small amount of hydrogen peroxide and a q-tip. Dry it off !!!!! put back to getheir and turn it on. that should fix it!

Incorrect times on wash cycles


you dont need to reset the times, all that has changed is the soil type. in example, light, regular or heavy. that is what causes the times to change.
you just need to push the options button until it shows the type of cycle you want.
also make sure you have the proper cycle selected and then look to see what other options are selected. you just have too many options turned on, so look at the controls to see what is different then you remember.

Clean light flashs seven times, stops and then does the same over again.


bellman, on this model I believe you can clear the fault by pressing high temp scrub--air dry--high temp scrub--air dry in that order. Your normal cycle on this dishwasher is approx 97 minutes without the thermal holds, (pauses to heat the water to proper temps.) So of course it's going to go over 97 minutes. This is for heavy soil. Light soil, approx 89 minutes. Some models have a soil sensor, some don't. If the sensor is out of specs..it could add to long wash times. The heater may in fact be the problem, he needs to check it. The heater runs through the nuetral side of the door switch so you want to make sure the switch is closing and the dishwasher is level and secure. He also wants to check out the resistance of the thermistor, should read 48 to 52K ohms at aprox. 75 degrees. Catriver..post back.
