Question about Kenmore Dishwashers

1 Answer

Kenmore Dishwasher model 630.1390 is starting it's cycle but then indicating it's complete less than 3 minutes later. Occasionally it runs through to completion, but usually not.

Door is latching fine. I've cleaned out the strainer and spray arms to make sure everything is flowing. I've also tried different cycle types (Normal, SmartWash) with and without Dry to see if there was any change. I also tried ensuring that the water it was intaking was 'hot' by running the adjacent hot water tap before engaging the cycle.

Sounds like the timer is bad, or intermittent, might be cheaper depending on age to replace the whole thing. parts ( esp timers which are main points of a dishwasher are costly.)

    Would replacing the Control Board be an option? Or are the timers independent of that?

It sounds like you just need to reset the controller. This is done by running (or partially running) a diagnostic cycle, which will clear the error. Here's how to do it: Depending on the model, and the keys you have, press the following sequence of keys quickly (with less that 1 second between key presses:
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. Let it run for a few minutes, and then press Cancel to stop the diagnostic cycle and clear the error.

Note: 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.

Kenmore dryer 90 series


Since no model number was given, check to see if you have a setting commonly noted as "wrinkle guard", "wrinkle shield", "press care" or something to that affect. Those settings will run the dryer for as much as 90 min after a completed drying cycle to prevent wrinkles in clothing, allowing you time to remove the cloths after a dry cycle if you are busy.

Kenmore elite dishwasher model 630 Smart Wash light is flashing


You may want to try:
Press a series of four buttons in quick succession. Press "Heated Dry," "Normal Wash," "Heated Dry" and "Normal Wash" to instruct your Kenmore dishwasher to run a short diagnostic test.
Wait for two minutes while your Kenmore dishwasher runs its diagnostic test.
Press the "Cancel/Drain" button once your dishwasher has completed its diagnostic test. This should reset your dishwasher control panel.
Check to make sure that there's no standing water in the bottom of your dishwasher. Standing water in your dishwasher may indicate that your dishwasher has stopped mid-cycle. You will need to press the "Cancel/Drain" button before you can reset your dishwasher control panel.

No, don't run Coca-Cola in it! I would call a repairman immediately - you may have a rubber hose that is disintegrating, and you dishwasher could start leaking seriously!

My Maytag QuietSeries 400 dishwasher won't start. Sometimes 88 flashes on the display and that's all. What does that mean? Model # MDB7601AWB


Dishwasher will not start Is the door open or unlatched?
Make sure the door is completely closed and latched. On models with a dual-digit display, the control displays "- -" during a cycle if it believes the door is not latched. Check for obstructions (spoons, etc), interfering with the door operation. A lower dish rack that is installed backward will also cause incomplete door closure.

Check your household electrical box to see if a fuse has blown or if the circuit breaker has tripped. If the unit has a plug-in power cord, make sure it is plugged in.

Does your dishwasher have a rotary timer knob? (Some Models)
The cycle selection must match the position of the timer knob. Turn the timer knob to the beginning of the preferred cycle. The timer knob should click when you reach the start of the cycle.

Is the control lock option activated?
Press and hold the Heated Dry option (button with lock icon) for three to five seconds and the light should turn off. Instructions are also placed on the label on top of the inner door to unlock the controls.

Is the delay start option activated?
To cancel the delay and cycle, press Cancel/Drain.

Has the motor stopped for less than 10 minutes?
The motor may have stopped due to an overload. If this is the case, the motor will automatically reset itself within 5-10 minutes.

Is the Start/Resume indicator flashing?
Opening the door or interrupting the power can stop the cycle. Close the door and press Start/Resume. If the Start/Resume indicator flashes three times when you press Start/Resume, the dishwasher is waiting for you to open the door after the last cycle. Open and close the door, and then press Start/Resume.
On models where the controls are on top of the door be sure to close the door within 3 seconds of pressing the Start/Resume to start or resume the dishwasher cycle.

Is the water shutoff valve (if installed) turned on?
Make sure that the water shutoff valve is turned on.

Got a used kenmore elite and I am looking for an instruction manual. I need more info on the washing cycles. Does it normally take 1 1/2 hrs to wash on the quick cycle mode? Model # 665.17483300 Type...


Here's a link to your model, showing exploded diagrams and parts lists, for future reference.

And your manual.

http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/10240/KENMORE-Dishwasher-L0308215?brand_name_search=665.17483300

I found similar Kenmore dishwashers on Consumer Reports with around 135 to 145 minutes for a normal wash cycle and around 5 to 6 gallons per wash. A quick wash would take somewhat less, depending on the model. But not much less. I think you are OK. Because dishwashers are using less water these days, they count on longer wash times to produce the same effect.

Best regards, --W/D--

Kenmore Elite Dishwasher clean light ind flashing and won't start


You will have to reset the console. To do this, close the door and press these buttons in sequence...

-high temp wash
-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry

...all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle finish (1-2 minutes).
You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.

Dishwasher won't start


Drhook65,
Welcome,
I'm Huuum

How old is this dishwasher and the complete model number is?
You said, you have a Kenmore Ultra Wash dishwasher, and you have power running to it, but when you shut the door on it...it still won't start a cycle. Does it have a reset button on it? Any ideas on a solution?

Yes, you may try this to reset the system.
Go to the breaker and switch it off for 5 minutes and the on and try it. It usually resets the systems.
Let me know ho it goes. Huuum
Do not forget to leave a rating.

Dishwasher keeps running and countdown stalls randomly.


Sounds like The settings have messed up it happened to mine a while back you need to do a hard reset of the dish washer mine was unplugging the thing then plugging back in 30 seconds later then holding the cycle button a few seconds and then power on again. Find your hard reset combination of what your make and model of the dishwasher is I hope this helps.
