Kenmore built-in Dishwasher #15149 runs for 3 hours or more

My Sears Kenmore Built-in Dishwasher Model # 587.15149403 gets stuck about 1/2 way thru the Light Wash cycle and runs for 3 or more hours. I used to start before I went to bed so it ran at night when it is cooler. But, one night it ran all night. I found the dial seems to get stuck about 1/2 in the area that says ''Light Wash'' and I have to turn the dial just a little to get it past that spot. After that it works fine. The dishwasher was purchased in July 2008. Where should I start first

SOURCE: Problem with Bosch built-in Dishwasher Model SHU6806UC

I had the same problem and just today replaced the control board module. Purchased the control module online and installed in myself. Was not that difficult. undo the screws (torx screw driver needed) unhook the connections to the board and label all. Pull the board out and open, found burned connectors. Now works like a dream.

SOURCE: Kenmore ultra wash dishwasher control lock light flashing

Hi jabberr216,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: You have an older model Kenmore ultra wash dishwasher model #15805890. The control lock light is flashing. No buttons are working. The dishwasher does not turn on. Any solutions?

Sure! Someone must have activated the lock. It is next to either the 'air dry' or 'heated dry' button.
Press and hold that button till the lock light goes out. About 6 seconds. That's it. It turns on the same way.

Feel free contact me again!

SOURCE: Kenmore ultra wash quiet guard 3 dishwasher problem

The sequence of "Press Heated Dry, press Normal Wash, then press Heated Dry again and press Normal Wash again (that's 4 button-presses)" worked for us. Many thanks!

Is the clean light blinking 7 times? If so this means you have a problem with your heating element

SOURCE: Dishwasher will not go thru wash cycles

if the water is not draining at all in any of the cycle it is probably the discharged line at the bottom of the pump has become blocked. there is an access panel at the bottom of the dishwasher which will allow you access the line. take the line off of the fitting , use a set of vise grips to remove the fitting from the base of the pump.You will probably find corn or rice lodged in the diaphragm within the fitting, remove debris and reinsert the fitting and hose. Hopefully this is helpful to you.

Kenmore dishwasher door leaks replaced gasket still leaks model#665.15669992 gasket replacement sears #3376927


check your overflow float inside the machine. it looks like a small hat or cone. it should move freely up and down. if it is stuck down, the water will continue to flow in. the gasket is designed to stop splashing water. it is not an underwater seal. good luck

Dishwasher not filling with water


Hello.

The humming sound you hear for the water is the sound of the solenoid trying to open with now success. You will need to replace the water valve. If you get the model number and go to www.sears.com and click parts direct it will have a place to enter the model number and order the water valve for your unit.

Kenmore Quietguard 3 has mold and is dirty inside


G'day, I have a Miele Dishwasher and I have only had one small problem with it in the 12 years I have own it. That was due to moving house, a bit of fluff had moved and was blocking an outlet. once cleaned with a brush it now works like new again. Best dishwasher on the market, made to last 20 years.

Dishwasher installation problem


I have had this problem in the past as well. They state that you have all the parts you need to install the dishwasher, however that is assuming that it is under ideal conditions. You will need an adapter to attach to the fill line to make it match the size on the diswasher. They usually only cost about $3.00.

Green clean light keeps blinking


HI, Same thing happened to me today and Sears more than willing to charge me 200.00 for a 1 year service agreement. I found the answer on askmehelpdesk.com and the answer is: To reset a Kenmore Ultra Wash elite series dishwasher (stuck on clean) simply push heated/dry then normal wash and do the same thing again. Panel will reset itself and it hopefully will run normally again. Mine did and I am rejoicing! Julie
