    When you press the "Start" button, nothing happens. So far I have only been able to get it to run on "Quick Wash", and then only after fiddling with all the buttons.

    We have a Kenmore 665.15932 and on night it was running fine and when we got up the unit apparently quit (power may have storm may have caused power to go off and come back on). We could not tell is the dishes in the unit were clean or not but there was water standing in the bottom. We check the home panel breaker including resetting the breaker to make sure electric was going to the unit. No light come on or or blinking. I tried pushing the sani & other buttons hoping to reset the unit with no success. We removed the control panel looking for a fuse & did not find anything obvious. I did read about another model having a "built-in" thermal fuse. Should I check this? What does it look like. Any other ideas? Thanks, Ben rebendever@debenllc.com

So far, I'm not very impressed with this website. I posted a problem with a Kenmore Elite 15962990. FixYa emailed me back, saying: "We wanted to find out if you still need a solution for the Kenmore 24 in. 15932 Built-in Dishwasher Problem". So now I'm confused. I'm supposed to trust advice from somebody who can't even get the model number right? And FixYa keeps telling me I'm dealing with a top load clothes washer instead of a dishwasher.
Anyway, the problem still exists. I know there must be some way to reset it or put it in "maintenance mode". But none of the button sequences I saw online will work because my specific model does not have the buttons mentioned.

Kenmore elite dishwasher model 630 Smart Wash light is flashing


You may want to try:
Press a series of four buttons in quick succession. Press "Heated Dry," "Normal Wash," "Heated Dry" and "Normal Wash" to instruct your Kenmore dishwasher to run a short diagnostic test.
Wait for two minutes while your Kenmore dishwasher runs its diagnostic test.
Press the "Cancel/Drain" button once your dishwasher has completed its diagnostic test. This should reset your dishwasher control panel.
Check to make sure that there's no standing water in the bottom of your dishwasher. Standing water in your dishwasher may indicate that your dishwasher has stopped mid-cycle. You will need to press the "Cancel/Drain" button before you can reset your dishwasher control panel.

I am trying to start a cyle and everytime i push the cycle button it does not light up and the quick rinse button comes on and flashes nothing works at all if i push heavy wash it comes on and nothing...


You haven't told me how many times the light flashes, but I will take a guess that this is an error code associated with the water entering the machine being too cool. I believe the machine expects the water to enter at 110 degrees F (43 Degrees C).

To clear the error, press "Heated Dry" then release, then press "Normal Wash" then release and repeat this sequence until all the lights on the machine go solid green. Once this happens, hit ""Cancel" and the machine will reset.

The fix for the root of the problem is to increase the temperature of the incoming water in future (Turn up your water heater temperature a little)

Hi
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.
