Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

I have a Kenmore model 665. It is having an intermittent problem. It goes through the fill cycle, and then stops. Timer does not progress either. Then, at some random moment, it will come back on and finish the entire cycle. This could even be a day or two later. Sometimes it seems a nearby thump will set it off, other times no one is anywhere near it when it comes back on. This happened for a month or so off and on 6 months ago, and then it worked fine for 6 months. Now it's back to it. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.

Its possible its a door switch thats causing this or the main wire is loose..be careful as you do have 115 volts. i'd turn off power and check where power comes into d/.w and make sure the wire nuts are tight.. the next step is a little more difficult. you need to get into control housing area and check for loose or bad wiring. find , locate, repair, or replace switch if bad..

Kenmore dishwasher 665-1703 wont stop washing


Unfortunatly you are looking at the timer which is now built into the controller which would need to be replaced. If the relays are fused shut on the timer or the gears are missing some teeth then you will only get sofar I the cycle and the washer will just stay where it's. Sorry

Whirlpool Washer will not progress to the rince cycle.


that is either a problem with the timer , or with the cold water hose at the back of the machine, see the following:



I quote from : The cycle doesn't advance

The cycle doesn't advanceWhen the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It'sthe timer, if your washing machine fills with water and beginsagitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spincycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • Itmay be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills withwater, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinsewater. See There's no cold water.
