Re: Kenmore Elite Model 13782 Dishwasher

I had warranty service come and replace the latch-door part # 8193830 which can be ordered from (~$38.00). The part was sent to my house prior to the service call. It is a simple replacement...just need to unscrew all the screws around the inside door to get to the latch. It seems to have solved the problem but it isn't clear what was wrong with the original one. The spring wasn't broken and nothing appears worn. We'll see....

I had the same problem and had a tech come fix it. There were two linked to it. The spring holding the latch was off and my circuit board was burned. Had both replaced and it worked fine afterwards. Good Luck

My Kenmore Elite Ultra Wash Dishwasher keeps shutting off before entering the cycle. I have repositioned dishes, even emptied it, changed cycle and tried everything. When I press the start light flashes...

I too had problems with the Kenmore Elite (aka Bosch). The issue was solved by replacing the Lock Sensor on the door. After replacing the sensor the dishwasher has been working. Hope this helps.

Kenmore dishwasher will not start

The most probable cause is the door latch (or switches in the latch) are not working right, and the controller thinks the door is open, even though it is closed.

Kenmore Elite 137889, grinding noise

If the noise is like a shaking of rattling , like coins being shaked , then it is an object trapped inside the tub.

If instead the noise is a loud grinding , that may get louder on high speed, then it is usually a bad drum bearing.

The drum bearing is replaced by accessing the bottom side of the washer, and is a not a simple repair.

My kenmore elite ultrawash dishwasher, model # 665.16289402, will not start. The green clean light keeps blinking and when you go to push start after selecting which wash program it does nothing.

youll need to enter a diagnistic 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, htne 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

Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher LIghts are blinking....

I just read this for the same problem: push sanitize, then heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, cancel, then open and close the door. It worked. The dishwasher is running correctly even as I type this.
