How do you reset the kenmore elite dishwasher? I replaced the faucet in my sink and forgot to turn on the water to the dishwasher....when I started it it went half way through the cycle when I realized there was no water. How do I reset it so that it will start at the beginning of a cycle?

Turn off the breaker that powers it. If all else fails, take a jug, fill it in the sink and pour it into the bottom of the dishwashwer until it comes to the bottom of the heater, that's the round think suspended above the bottom, below the rack, and turn it back on.

Water backs up from the drain in my dishwasher and smells. what is the problem?


Two things can cause this problem:
1. The check valve in your dishwasher may be defective, allowing water and food debris to seep (or run) back into your dishwasher.
2. Your drain hose may not be "mounted up" the way it should be. Look under your sink. Look at how your drain hose is connected to your garbage disposal. If the hose runs down to the floor of your cabinet and into your dishwasher, that is wrong. Instead, it should be mounted up so that water from the sink and garbage disposal would have to flow up first to get into the dishwasher. If you do this, then even if you have a bad check-valve in the dishwasher, it will prevent the problem (or greatly reduce the problem) of dirty water flowing back into your dishwasher.

What should the water temperature be?


Dishwashers (d/w) require water temp to be in the 140 degree range to properly dissolve the detergents, oils and food waste in addition to aiding in the drying process. Most d/w have a heating element in it to assist in bringing the temp up to requirements, but not all. To know what your d/w offers, you will have to read the owners booklet that came with it. Many units will have a selection available for "sani heat" or "temp boost". These will also raise the water temp, but it is best to start with the hottest water available to it by running the sink faucet until you see steam in the sink. Keep in mind, water will steam at lower temps according to the room temp you are in. So steam does not necessarily mean you have 140 degree water. Water heaters have some adjustment to them, but that is best left up to a qualified plumber so you don't risk scalding. Hope this helps.

Water is not comeing on when you put it on wash


It sounds like you (or the installation technician) forgot to turn the water on at the angle stop (where the supply line connects into the water supply). If you have a two-outlet angle stop, check the sink faucet to make sure you have water. If you have water, check the electrical connections and the breaker to make sure you have power. These are the main points to check for this kind of issue.

Kenmore Ultra Wash water supply started making loud noise while water is entering washer. If you turn on sink faucet at the same time the noise will stop.


It sounds like the solenoid valves which let in the water are not fully opening and causing chatter -- probably corroded . Turning the washer-water supply faucets down (to the left) will probably stop it, but the solenoid valves need to be checked.

The reason opening the sink faucet stops the noise is that it reduces the water pressure to the washer -- this is the same effect as turning the washer faucets down.

Kenmore Elite dishwasher Options light up but nothing runs.


The blinking "clean light" is a common problem with some of the Kenmore and Whirlpool models dishwashers.
The problem is usually attributed to water supply temperatures being too low when filling.

Apparently, there are some issues with the temperature sensing circuits in some dishwashers that causes an error code to be generated if a certain water temperature is not achieved in a specified time interval (this time may differ between models).
There is a reset sequence that you can try to clear the fault.
Push the NORMAL WASH then HEATED DRY buttons in that sequence two to three times.
The unit will enter diagnostics mode, but can be stopped by pressing the CANCEL button.
This will clear any existing faults and should return the dishwasher to normal operation.

To keep the fault from returning, it is recommended that you run your hot water faucet in the kitchen until it runs hot BEFORE you start the dishwasher.
This will heat the water in the supply line for the dishwasher (most dishwashers are fed from the kitchen sink supply line).

The theory is that if you fill the dishwasher with hot water from the start of the wash cycle instead of the cool water that is normally in the lines (especially if you have a hot water tank located far away from the kitchen), this should satisfy the requirements of the temperature sensing circuits.
If the fault reappears, there should be a tech sheet located inside the lower panel under the door that explains what the fault is.
The flashing light will be a series of flashes, followed by a pause.
If you indeed have a component problem, it will depend on the number of flashing lights in the sequence.
Refer to the tech sheet to determine WHAT component is affected and how to troubleshoot.
