Question about Kenmore 15769 Built-in Dishwasher

Kenmore Dishwasher #15769

Will not cycle through. The "pots and pans" light keeps flashing. If I try to "cancel" out then the "pots and pans" light keeps flashing along with the "quick rinse" light. I have already disconnected and reconnected the power to try to "reboot" the dishwasher

    Every other cycle seems to be working fine and the actual pots and pans cycle is working fine....aside from not running any water on just that cycle!!!

Try this solution first
Push the Hi-temp and then push the Sani-rinse. Go back and forth multiple times on these two buttons. I found that after a handfull of pushes that a "1" came up on the display. I continued to keep rotating the two buttons and then a "2" came up on the display and the dishwater started it's "drain" phase. I then hit cancel to clear and then I selected the cycle I wanted. The washer started up just as normal at this point.

I don't have any display, so the numbers thing doesn't seem possible for this model. I did try alternating Hi-temp and Sani-rinse to no effect. Holding them both down for about 10 seconds brought me a more slowly flashing wash light, but no improvement. I then just held down the air-dry button for about 5 seconds and all lights went off and I was able to make selections as normal. It's washing now

Whirlpool quiet partner iv. Turn breaker off then on. Displays 4H then goes off few mins later. Press the cancel button and then the POTS AND PANS along with NORMAL buttons start flashing back and forth.


this is not from me but i found it and am passing on..
Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error code 4h means 4 hour delay start which means that the dishwasher is in delay start mode and has been set to 4 hours. You can either wait for 4 hrs or to start it immediately press the cancel button to cancel the delay start option. After this program the cycle and options and press Start again as the dishwasher will not start the wash until it reaches the delayed hour i.e. till 4hrs. If after 4 hrs still the light blinks and it wont start then you'll have to replace the control panel. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Whirlpool du1055xtss3 not working


I dont know if this indicates a malfunction or not. One user manual may cover several years while many modifications can take place. Ask yourself if any other part of the process can contribute to this. You have electricity to the control board or it will not flash these display indicators.
Is the water on?
Is the waterline kinked under or behind the machine?
Is it connected to hot water? A heater raises the hot water quickly but cold water takes alot longer to reach operating temp. Since the hottest program id pots and pans, this may indicate the heater is bad but since you were able to change the display to pp and normal I think you entered into a controls sequence that technicians can do to make changes to some parameters like temperature setting or water hardness. See if you can get a whirlpool tech to break the grip on his service manual and send you a page by email. Good luck.

Hi there, can you put it through the pots and pans wash cycle , see if it works with that first ?

also the drainage pipe might be blocked making the normal cycles unusable.
you might need to get in a plumber or somebody that can unblock a pipe.

Hope this helps .

Hello,

To reset the dishwasher push in this order the,

HIGH TEMP WASH- HEATED DRY- HIGH TEMP WASH- HEATED DRY - CANCEL/OFF

the control will be reset...but more importantly how many times in a row does the light flash..it will indicate what error code its displaying??

example if it flashes 4 times then a pause then flashes 4 times again its displaying the error code#4
7 flashes then pause then 7 flashes its displaying the error code#7 ect ect

////////////////////my kitchenaid dishwasher lights are flashing


Can you explain the issue in detail - is your dishwasher not working at all, or the buttons continue to be lit up, etc?

First and foremost, check the dooe switch to see if it is functioning properly.
