Question about Kenmore 16872 Built-in Dishwasher
I have a Kenmore Ultra Wash DishWasher model #665.16872. The
dishwasher will not start. There is power going to the control
panel. I had a clogged main drain just prior to this problem and not
sure if problem is related to this. The drain is opened now. After
working with it several hours the Pots/Pans, Normal Wash, and China
Gentle lights will light up. Also Cancel/Drain will light up but will
not drain. If I hold down start button for maybe 10 seconds the China/
Gentle button flashes until I release it. I know this is probably
giving me an error code.
Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.
Some of these units have a thermal fuse in line with and mounted on the control card. This will need to be checked. Also check the door switches. Some models will aloow power to the control card but to nothing else.

I keep putting in my model # from my book and you keep telling me it is not a valid one. I know it is so you assholes should get up to date.
