None of the lights come on Dishwasher doesn't work

None of the lights on my 16764 Kenmore dishwasher will come on.  I've checked the power both where it is hardwired in and at the circuit board and there is power in both areas.  I've also checked the power to the latch and it seems to be operational as well.  I have replaced the circuit board ($160) which was recommended, but it didn't solve the problem.  Any help is appreciated!!

Re: None of the lights come on Dishwasher doesn't work

Ive got the exact same problem, but the thermal fuse is OK. Also the thermal cut out on the base of the machine is testing OK too. However like the other two people no lights no noise nothing !. Yet tests show there is power to the Circuit board.

Kenmore dishwasher wont turn on seems to have no power.

Check the breaker in your breaker box, it may have tripped. Reset it and run the dishwasher. If it trips again, have the dishwasher looked at by a professional service person.

First make sure that nothing is blocking the drain pump assembly located inside the lower front panel of the dishwasher. If the issue returns after its cleaned then try to reset the dishwasher control by pressing the HEATED DRY button and hold it for 15 seconds, if its still not resolved then it means that the control board has gone bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Talking about a kenmore 665.16389300 dishwasher. the "normal wash" button is blinking, but none of the other buttons seem to work and the cleaning cycle will not start when i press the...

Open the door. Within 3 seconds press the following sequence --Try pressing normal wash, heated dry, normal wash, heated dry, normal wash, heated dry three times within 6 seconds and then press cancel to reset the dishwasher. If that doesn't help then try pressing Saini Rinse, Heated Dry, Saini Rinse, Heated Dry, Saini Rinse, Heated Dry or Saini Rinse, Air Dry, Saini Rinse, Air Dry, Saini Rinse, Air Dry 3 times in 6 seconds and then the Cancel Button. Close the door and press Cancel.
Blinking lights would stop and should be able to use your dishwasher normally. If the light is still blinking try and reset the power to the dishwasher and try again. If still the light is blinking then check for the connections on the keypad, it may be due to moisture or shorted connections on keypad. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

I have a kenmore 665-15684. I have clear standing water in the dishwasher and doesn't seem to drain. No lights are on (or blinking) on the control panel and none of the buttons seem to work on the...

It is very likely the computer has failed.

Try to empty the dishwasher with a small container and try it on a short cycle to see if it starts the cycle.

If there is no action then it is time to decide if you want to replace the computer. See item 6 in this diagram.

Hope this helps.

No water going to the top arm of the dishwasher

Check that the arm outlet jets at the trailing end of the arms are not blocked with food particles and other solid matter. This often happens and the arm is unable to turn because the water jet that is supposed to drive the arm does not have the force to rotate it with the result is that the upper dishes do not get enough water and chemicals. It may also cause water to continue dripping onto dried dishes after the the drying cycle has stopped.
