Question about Kenmore 24 in. 17372 / 17374 / 17379 Built-in Dishwasher
The "Normal Wash" button flashes. Start did nothing. When I pressed the "Cancel / Drain" button then it also flashed. I have tried to cut power to it overnight and a day to see if maybe something might "reset". This had no effect.
I had a simular problem with my Kenmore. I unplugged it for an hour or so and it worked for a while. (Disconnect dishwasher from power befer attempting this procedure!) I ended up removing the inner door panel and removing the circuit board. I used a clean damp (distilled water preferred) paper towel and wiped down the entire circuit board surface. I paid special attention to the areas between the closely spaced component leads. I dried the board with a dry paper towel and re-installed the board. The dishwasher has preformed flawlessly for the past 4 months.
I believe that the mist and steam deposites a thin film of very conductive detergent and minerals on the board surfaces over time. The resulting electrical leakage paths "scrambles" the control's "brains".
I also noted that prior to my repair, most of the led cycle indicating lights were very dimly glowing with the room lights out. Also, the wash cycle ran for a much longer time.
