Cycle Buttons nor Start Button will not light nor work.

I have a Kenmore built-in dishwasher 665.1374 and None of Cycle buttons will not light up nor will the Start button light up nor start the motor. Other buttons will light up on the control panel. So, electricity is going into the machine. It is from 2007.

Servicing Timer and Control Switches

Because the timer controls many operations, a faulty timer can cause many problems. The timer is a complex component, so you shouldn't attempt a do-it-yourself repair. Test the timer with a VOM set to the RX1 scale. To gain access to the timer, remove the front control panel. The timer is directly behind the main timer control knob. Disconnect one of the timer's terminal wires and clip one probe of the VOM to each terminal. If the meter reads zero, the timer is working. If the meter reads higher than zero, the timer is faulty and should be replaced.

If possible, use the same procedure to test the selector and cycle switches. The wiring hookup, however, may be too complicated to figure out on either of these switches. If you aren't sure you can deal with these switches, call a professional service person. Replace a faulty timer -- or a faulty control switch -- with a new one made for the dishwasher.

The timer is connected to several wires that supply power to operate the various functions of the dishwasher. To replace the timer, have a helper hold the new timer next to the old one. Connect the wires of the new timer one by one, removing the old wire and connecting the new, to make sure you connect the wires correctly. The wires may be friction-fit on the terminals. If they are, use long-nosed pliers to remove the wires. Don't pull up on the wires, or you may break the connection between the wires and the clips.

After connecting the wires, set the new timer in position, secure it the way the old one was secured, and replace the control panel and knobs.

If your dishwasher won't fill with water properly or isn't drying the dishes, you most likely have a valve or heating element problem.

Green normal light is on but none of the buttons including start button work


Hello friend, thank you for your post!
I understand that the light on your Frigidaire dishwasher is lit as it normally is, except it will not operate. It is possible that your dishwasher may have an issue within the keypad or control panel. You can perform a reset, in the case that it is a miscommunication error within the dishwasher. You can reset the dishwasher by flipping the household circuit breaker off for at least ten minutes. If this does not help correct your issue I would recommend seeking assistance from a professional technician for a proper diagnosis and repair. This will help you avoid any unnecessary part purchases. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Kenmore Elite 15962990 will not start


So far, I'm not very impressed with this website. I posted a problem with a Kenmore Elite 15962990. FixYa emailed me back, saying: "We wanted to find out if you still need a solution for the Kenmore 24 in. 15932 Built-in Dishwasher Problem". So now I'm confused. I'm supposed to trust advice from somebody who can't even get the model number right? And FixYa keeps telling me I'm dealing with a top load clothes washer instead of a dishwasher.
Anyway, the problem still exists. I know there must be some way to reset it or put it in "maintenance mode". But none of the button sequences I saw online will work because my specific model does not have the buttons mentioned.
