Question about Kenmore 24 in. 15252 / 15254 / 15259 Built-in Dishwasher

Kenmore dishwasher 15835

Today I noticed a dash symbot (-) lit up on the display panel and the dishwasher will not work.  The - symbol lights up whenever you press any buttons and goes out after a minute or so.  We checked all connections to no avail.  The only function that we can get to work is the 'control lock' by pressing the 'no heat dry' pad for 4 seconds.  Nothing else will work.  Thanks for all and any input.

How do I cancel the control lock


It would help if you gave the brand and model number of your dishwasher, but the answer is basically the same. Look carefully at your dishwasher control panel. You probably have a little lock symbol that is lit up (or a light inside the symbol is lit). And usually this lock symbol is located near (usually above) a button that is usually used for another purpose. Most often this is the Heated-Dry key or button. Press and hold this key for 3 to 5 seconds until the lock symbol light goes out. And it's just that easy! But if you press the key, and nothing happens, then you may have a bad control console that will have to be replaced.

Kenmore ultra wash machine won't run even with indicator lights on. Symbol on machine says Lock on


You have the control-lock function turned on. There should be a key located near (above or below) the lighted lock symbol. Usually, it's the Heated Dry button. Whatever it is, press and hold that key for 5 seconds. That should unlock your dishwasher and you can now use it normally.

Kenmore ultra wash dishwasher 15835 it runs fine, but when is sets after its finished it get water in it and you have to press cancel to drain it again. Any idea?


Water inlet valve needs replacing. (about $50 for the part)
The valve is leaking and allowing water to enter the dishwasher even when it's off. You can turn off the supply line shut off between uses until you get the part.

Refrig shut off and will not restart - light bulbs still working


this refrigerator sounds like a 'frost free' type, and as such can, usually, only be repaired by the manufacturer. local refrigeration engineers cannot get the parts. your fault sounds like a PCB (printed circuit board) has gone, which only the manufacturers have in stock.
