    Touch pads are not working on my Kenmore 665. The touchpad lights up for a few seconds and then goes off.

    After loving this dishwasher for about 1-2 years, it will only do a wash/rinse cycle, but will not go to the dry cycle. I actually can't tell if it is on wash/rinse, but it does the water action, then pauses, drains, and starts it all over again. It will run for hours doing this, and never seems to progress in its cycle. Since it's a digital not a manual panel, I cannot crank it forward to continue the cycle. Ah, the good ole days. Any ideas?

It appears your dispenser wax switch has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

The issue with your dishwasher is more than likely the "thermal fuse" inside the control panel...it is all too common with those machines unfortunately.

I've attached a link at the bottom which will show step by step how to repair your machine.

You will first need to retrieve a new fuse, part number 8193762.
**IT IS A REVISED FUSE KIT TO THE ORIGINAL (designed to prevent this from happening in the future), BUT COMES WITH THE PARTS AND INSTRUCTIONS REQUIRED TO COMPLETE THE REPAIR/UPDATE. AS SHOWN BELOW.**
i.e.
macmarkus_348.jpg

these are available at most local brick & mortar parts vendors or on-line at depots such as "repairclinic.com" or "searspartsdirect.com" to name a couple.

In the video just follow the instruction as per removing the panel and turn the power off of course and you'll be fine.

Hope this helps move you forward. Let me know if I can assist you further and I will try and help in any manner I can. Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Smelly dishes from Kenmore Ultra Wash


If you post the model number of your dishwasher plus its approximate age (in years) I can help more.

But the most common cause is a weakening pump motor. On many dishwashers, the wash pump motor is also the drain motor. Replacing that motor / pump assembly will solve the problem. While you are replacing the pump, check the heating element to confirm that it is not shorted out or broken.

For now, add a cap full of bleach to the water _after_ the initial dishwasher fill cycle ends and the wash cycle begins. White vinegar would also work, but this will not fix your problem.

Good Luck!

Clean light keeps blinking and I can't start a new cycle


That is a comon problem with that model. It is not sensing a temperature change in the water.

Push i believe it is heated dry and sani rinse going back and fourth between the two to clear the code and see if you can get it to complete a cycle. If it doesnt call sears and schedule service there is a service flash repair that should not cost you anything to repair the unit.

Cleaning Cycle goes twice around or more before completing cycle?


Ours did that too. I figured ou that it was because I was putting it on ultra wash by hitting normal wash + high temp, that automaticly sets it to Ultra wash. If you just set it to normal wash and hit start it should only do one cycle.

Clean light keeps blinking and I can't start a new cycle


Puppa, clear the fault by pressing the keys in this order: high temp scrb--air dry--high temp scrub--air dry. Or, depending on your model..Sani rinse--air dry--sani rinse--air dry. The dishwasher will enter the service mode. Let it do it's thing or advance it through it by pressing the start key. The fault came from the board not sensing a rise in the water temp. Make sure to run the hot water before starting the dishwasher. The heating element runs through the nuetral side of the door switch so make sure the d/w is level and the door switches are all making. The element itself could be at fault. Catriver...post back
