Question about Kenmore 24 in. 15252 / 15254 / 15259 Built-in Dishwasher
Although my dishes come out clean, dry and spotless, the green "Sanitized" light no longer comes on after the load is finished, only the "Clean" light is on. This problem occurs even if the sanitize button is lit prior to starting the load. Is there an additive I'm supposed to add in order to get my dishes sanitized or to get the light to work, do I have a burnt out sanitized light or do I have a bigger problem?
You don't need an additive.
The sanitized LED itself is probably out.
It will not light up if the sensor doesn't sense that the water has reached 155 F. If the dishes are getting clean, I assume the heater is working properly. You could have a failed sensor, but you would usually notice longer than normal wash times and the dishwasher getting hotter than usual.
Alternately press heat dry and hi temp scrub 4 times. This puts washer into diagnostic mode. The first thing that happens is all the LED's light up. If it lights up then it is ok and the problem is somewhere else.
If these instructions don't apply to your machine, please post the complete model number from the decal just inside the front of the tub and I will look it up for you.
