Kenmore dishwasher 665.15625690

Kenmore dishwasher is about 10 yrs old. It stopped working except when you put the dial in the pots/pans range about 2/3 of the way toward the normal wash cycle point. It will run for about 1 - 1 1/2 mins and then stop and there is about 2 inches of water in the bottom. I have tested the timer and it shows in the high end of the normal range at about 2800 ohms... what should I check next?

you'll need to enter a diagnostic 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, after 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

Well, Larry, it sounds as if you've tried just about everything.... except replacing the control console (with keypad), and if everything else is okay, then that is PROBABLY your problem.

Pots and pans and normal wash blinking

Try resetting it. Locate the switch in your breaker box, and flip it off- then on again. Hope that works!

The Pots Pans button flashes and won't let me change it

Go to your circuit breaker panel and turn off the circuit that feeds you dishwasher. Leave it off for three minutes. This will reset the program and should solve your problem.

Dishwasher won't cycle through to rinse/dry/stop

Your timer switch is most likely defective.

It probably needs to be replaced.

It is like a clock with switches at different times

If it is stuck at a particular time it will run there forever.

Before servicing disconnect power!!!!!!!!!!

You can remove inside door panel with about 6 phillips screws or so.

Timer is directly attached to the dial on your machine.

These cost about $100.00 or less.

Can also be found used online for cheaper.

Quick Rinsw button blinking

I may have fixed my similar problem- I opened up the machine to get access to the control panel as tech17 advised- then in addition to disconnecting the mylar ribbon, I disconnected all the connections to the control panel.... keep in mind to ensure not to confuse any of the connectors you disconnect. Running a cycle at this time... seems as if working.. can't tell if water is running or just the motor- -- HA! -- i confirmed no water being pumped in.... We then found a float switch (Item 30 on schematic) that got loose from its casing on the front interior right lower side... we put that switch into its proper place and now ALL IS WELL!!!! Yippee!!!

Dishwasher's "Pot-n-Pans" light flashing

ga, behind the toe panel on the bottom there should be a tech sheet explaining how to put the dishwasher in the test mode. See if you can enter the test mode. If you can't, you probably have a stuck or shorted keypad. back
