Question about Kenmore Dishwashers
I have a kenmore elite dishwasher model #665 1726 2401 that stopped working. There is power, we checked the breaker. When you press the cancel & drain button the light comes on and it runs for about one minute. The hi temp wash , sani rinse and heated dry buttons will light up when pressed but the machine won't start. Also if you press the pots and pans button, the cancel/drain button lights up and runs for about one minute. Any thoughts?

My guess is that the foil that the buttons are mounted to is defective. The control module "reads" the buttons that are pushed by the fact that the resistance between two pins on the circuitboard becomes zero ie. your pushing the button shorts out two pins. the foil could have moistire damage or the resiistance of the tracks could be too high. Solution for both would be to replace the control panel button foil.

you'll need to enter a diagnostic mode, press in this order, hi-temp(sani-rinse)----heated dry--hitemp---heated dry... all lights should light, close door and let cycle for about a min, after press the cancelbutton, you should be good to go, the buttons on your model may read slighty different names, if this "toggle of buttons" does not work, you can remove thelower access panel and htere willl be a tech sheet/trouble shoooter behind the panel, in there it will explain how to enter diag/test mode

It sounds like you have a serious wash problem. A couple things to check.
Be sure you are using fresh detergent. Old dish washing detergent looses its power and will not work. Be sure to use a name brand like Electrosol or Cascade they both contain the chemicals need to dissolve and clean properly. Use more detergent if you have hard water or use an additive such as lemi shine or glass magic to boost the water softness.
Try running the hot water faucet at your kitchen sink unit hot prior to starting the dishwasher this will help with the thermal energy needed to clean.,
If you still have trouble send me your complete model number from the tag on the tub so I can help trouble shoot the machine better.
