Question about Kenmore 16764 Dishwasher

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!!

    Dishwasher has no power. It stopped in the middle of a cycle and will not turn on again. There are no lights on the display. This problem happened once before and a repair man fixed the dishwasher. I don't want to have to pay somone if possible. I have taken any corrective steps yet.

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.

Wash cycle won't start

I'm so sorry to hear about your issue. I know it can be frustrating. I did a little search on Google and it may be a shorted circuit board from steam/heat getting behind the panel. Here's the link I found on "Just Answer" have Kenmore 1374 Dishwasher that is driving me crazy

Blinking light on Kenmore Pro 13873K dishwasher: won't run

May be the drain pump is jammed. Try to clean the area and after that try to reset the panel. Download the user manual and there must be the reset sequence.

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.

Clean light flashes continuously. None of the cycles work except drain.

Might help if you provide the model number of the dishwasher.

It is likely the float switch at base of dishwasher is cutting in. Have you tried to turn the power off and back on.

Need model no.

Water is not pumping into the machine - water is coming up to the machine but not going in

Most likely need to replace water solenoid valve located where water line connects to the dishwasher

Dishwasher Clean light blinks constantly.

Try turning off the power to the dishwasher at the circuit breaker box. leave the power off for 5 10 mins and then turn breaker back on and try to restart dishwasher. This may reset the board and it may work

Kenmore elite dishwasher not running

I had the same problem with mine. The whole circuit board, buttons and all, need replacement. If you look online, you can find this part for a bit over 100 dollars. Definetely worth it over paying 5 bills for a new one.Simple to install too, just turn off power at breaker.
