Question about Kenmore 16872 Built-in Dishwasher

Kenmore Dishwasher displays the number "98"

I have a Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher (model# 665.16835792). It seems to have completed a wash cycle, but may not have completed the dry cycle, and then quit. Now it displays the number "98" on the front panel. None of the buttons do anything now. Upon opening and closing the door, the display reads "90", but changes back to "98" within 2-3 seconds. I tried disconnecting the AC power source for approx. 6 hours and then reconnecting it, but the problem persists. Any information regarding this will be greatly appreciated.

I have a very similar problem. When I push a wash selection, every light on the panel shows up...and when I push Start, nothing happens. When I push cancel, it trys to drain, even tho no water is in there any more. Have you ever had an answer to your problem?

We have Kenmore Ultra Wash Quiet Guard 3, approximately two years old and in my opinion it is a piece of junk. When the little green light goes on to tell you the load is finished and it has barely started, you have to push a series of buttons to clear it and start all over again. The series is: heated dry, normal wash, then heated dry normal wash a second time, then cancel. Now the light is out and you can start all over. There is no rhyme nor reason to when the blasted green light starts blinking in error, but we seem to be good for a few proper washings before it starts again. It cost $60.00 to have a technician come way out to our farm and push this series of buttons to clear the machine. Thank goodness he left us the code. What ****!

What could be causing the door latch to release late in the wash cycle of my Kenmore Ultra dishwasher?


The door spring tension might be causing the door latch to become disengaged. Check the level of the dishwasher and also adjust door spring tension. Will need model number to provide more details.

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!

Dishwasher won't start


Drhook65,
Welcome,
I'm Huuum

How old is this dishwasher and the complete model number is?
You said, you have a Kenmore Ultra Wash dishwasher, and you have power running to it, but when you shut the door on it...it still won't start a cycle. Does it have a reset button on it? Any ideas on a solution?

Yes, you may try this to reset the system.
Go to the breaker and switch it off for 5 minutes and the on and try it. It usually resets the systems.
Let me know ho it goes. Huuum
Do not forget to leave a rating.

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.

Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher LIghts are blinking....


I just read this for the same problem: push sanitize, then heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, cancel, then open and close the door. It worked. The dishwasher is running correctly even as I type this.
