Question about Kenmore 16872 Built-in Dishwasher

2 Answers

Dishwasher will not start..we've had it about 3 to 4 years

Hi,

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.

How to reset a Kenmore 668.1687582 dishwasher


Yes, depending on the model, and the buttons that your dishwasher has, try the following key sequences:
Heated Dry - Normal - Heated Dry - Normal; or
High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry; or
Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry, Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry; or
High Temp Wash, Heated Dry, High Temp Wash, Heated Dry). You will know that you have entered the diagnostic cycle when all the lights light up for a few seconds.
On some of the newer Whirlpool, Kenmore, KitchenAid dishwashers, you start the diagnostic cycle by rapidly pressing the 3 left-most keys in the following sequence: 1 2 3, 1 2 3, 1 2 3.

I see the pressure tower for a Kenmore Ultra Wash Quiet Guard dishwasher laying in the bottom of the dishwasher. I've just rented the house and haven't used the dishwasher yet. Does this pie


No, the designers put it in there for a reason; it won't work as well without it, as it would with it in. Probably the mounting tabs are broken or sprung. A new tower isn't very expensive. You can probably get one from SearsPartsDirect.com, RepairClinic.com, EasyApplianceParts.com, or AppliancePartsPros.com.

Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher Problem


there is no real way of checking the keypad. Not with a meter but if you push normal wash for example and it does not respond this usually means that you have a bad keypad
