    Kenmore 66515764 dishwasher

    after trying the reset sequences:

    Quick rinse and High temperature buttons are still blinking alternatively with the Cancel button also blinking. Won't start.

    I tried unplugging the dishwasher, no help. Could it be a bad keypad, or control board? I reseated all the connections on the control board already, no difference.

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. If you have already checked the door switch and the wiring connections then it is definitely the keypad that has gone bad and needs to be replaced. You'll have to replace the whole keypad unit. Please click on this link for a new keypad for your Kenmore Dishwasher.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

Hi
Press back and forth hi-temperature wash and sani rinse several times to get all lights to come on if not then press sani rinse and heated dry back and forth several times. One of the combos will start the test mode. The test mode will stop the light from blinking and you can use the dishwasher again.
Also press "normal wash" and "heated dry" buttons back and forth and it will reset the dishwasher and work normal again.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com

What is the sequence to reset kenmore dishwasher 665.16719000? The buttons from left to right are pots/pans, normal wash, water miser, china gentle, quick rinse, high temp, air dry, delay wash, start


Press "high temp wash, heated dry, High temp wash, heated dry, high temp wash, heated dry, high temp wash, heated dry, high temp wash"

All the lights will go solid at which point you press cancel to reset the board.

**NOTE** if you don't have a "heated dry" button, use the "air dry" or "energy saver dry" button instead.

Kenmore dishwasher model #665 15872000 is stuck on time saver option for washing and I can't get it to switch to any of the other options such as normal wash


Similar Kenmore Dishwasher 665.18664000. Time saver and Quick rinse were the only programs that would run. I pressed "high temp scrub" then "air dry" then "high temp scrub" then "air dry" and the machine went into a diagnostic mode and counted down from 10 while running a series of tests. After about 10 minutes and various test cycles the machine reset and the "normal wash" light had come back on. If this doesn't work then you may have a problem with the controller which other threads have mentioned replacing yourself for about $120.

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!!!

Kenmore 665 dishwasher blinking clean light


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

Kenmore Elite 8269645


I have this model, but not this problem (my impeller motor seems to have burned out). Anyway, try pressing Hi Temp Scrub, Air Dry, Sani Rinse, Air Dry, in that order and see what happens. Mine appears to reset and run through a set of warm-up tests.

Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher - Blinking Quick Rinse Light


I had the same flashing light problem first the normal wash flashing light then the others. I tried shuting of the breakers but nothing. I tried resetting the panel by pushing normal wash and heated dry simultaneously and nothing. So I took the six screws holding the front panel out and unplugged the ribbon type wires and plug and unplugged it several times to help make a better contact and I was able to get it to work right away. This may not work for all but I worked for me. It is very easy to do and it's worth a try if you're having the same problem. It took me less then 10 minutes.

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

Blinking Quick Rinse


brent, After doing a little research on this model, I see that Sears put out a service flash concerning this problem. Dishwasher stops in mid cycle and one or more of the lights are flashing. SF22-715. The correction is to replace the existing board with an updated board that controls the line voltage better. Part number 8530928. You could be covered under this flash. The tech will have to eliminate the possibility of a stuck or shorted keypad which will cause this same effect. You can try to get this back in operation by pressing in this order: high temp wash-air dry-high temp wash-air dry. This will put it into a self test mode. Just let it run through if it works. If you don't have those keys try power scour-air dry-power scour-air dry. Catriver...post back.
