The smart wash light on my kenmore elite model 66513753K602 is flashing. I have tried the suggested button sequences to reset it and they have not worked. How do I troubleshoot it to determine which...


From the tech sheet:

CHECKING KEYPAD
OPERATION
A rapidly blinking LED over
one of the keys of the keypad
(or sometimes a "dead"
keypad/console) indicates one
or more key switch lines are
stuck or shorted on either the
control or the keypad. To
determine if the control or
keypad is faulty, do the
following test:
1. Unplug dishwasher or disconnect
power.
2. Open the dishwasher door.
3. Open console and disconnect the
keypad ribbon connection from
the control (at P1). Make sure all
other connections are made.
4. Put console back together. Do not
close the dishwasher door.
5. Plug in dishwasher or reconnect
power.
6. Wait 5 seconds.
7. Close dishwasher door.
8. Monitor the control's response:
? If the control is OK (no longer
sees shorts with the keypad
unplugged), it will respond by
turning on a Drain Motor for
2 minutes. Check and/or
replace the keypad if the
control responds OK.
? If the control is not OK (still
sees shorts with the keypad
unplugged), then the drain
motor will NOT respond and
will remain off. If no response,
replace the control.

It sounds like you just need to reset the controller. This is done by running (or partially running) a diagnostic cycle, which will clear the error. Here's how to do it: Depending on the model, and the keys you have, press the following sequence of keys quickly (with less that 1 second between key presses:
Heated Dry - Normal - Heated Dry - Normal; or
High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry; or
Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry, Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry; or
High Temp Wash, Heated Dry, High Temp Wash, Heated Dry.
You will know that you have entered the diagnostic cycle when all the lights light up. Let it run for a few minutes, and then press Cancel to stop the diagnostic cycle and clear the error.

Note: On some of the newer Whirlpool, Kenmore, KitchenAid dishwashers, you start the diagnostic cycle by rapidly pressing the 3 left-most keys in the following sequence: 1 2 3, 1 2 3, 1 2 3.

Kenmore elite dishwasher 665.12793k311 will not drain automatically. Drains fine when drain button is pressed. Has been running perfect for the past 14 months then all of a sudden stopped draining aut


Wow, that's interesting! I would have guessed the control module (control circuit board) too. But, once upon a time, I encountered a similar situation, and the problem turned out to be the drain pump! It seems like that after the dishwasher ran in the main cycle (where the heater is used to heat up the water), the heat somehow made the drain pump stop working! I don't know if it made the motor wires expand and break a connection, or if the heat made the seals of the motor expand or somehow impeded the free-turning of the motor, but replacing that drain pump fixed the problem! If you want to try this, I would really like hearing back from you on whether or not that fixes your problem. Good luck!

How do I fix a flashing Start/Resume light on a Kenmore Elite dishwasher model 665.13793K601?


These dishwashers are known to accumulate moisture in the keypad and then short. The solution that I have seen is to replace the keypad...It is possible that all of your issues with this dishwasher could point back to the keypad. After spending $$$ on the circuit boards, do you want to throw and additional $135 for a keypad? or replace the whole unit? Food for thought. Here is a link for you:

Clean light flashing


This is a communication error between the control and motor. Try resetting the control by pressing the following keys with in 5 seconds.

HEATED DRY, NORMAL, HEATED DRY, NORMAL

after about 15 seconds hit cancel then the control should be unlocked. If the problem comes back the problem is most likely with the motor for the pump. Check with your warranty, some of these Kenmore models may be under warranty

DIshwasher stopped during wash and won't run or drain.


Sounds like a drain motor startup capacitor, or stuck pump. Try disconnecting power and turn the water pump manually. Some disassembly required. Then after a few good hand spins replug and try again.

Changed Electronic control on Kenmore dishwaser


Sounds like wsh motor is not running. Test cycle by pushing in order: hi temp, air dry, hi-temp, air-dry. All lites come on and unit will run. Should hear motor running when 'washing' light is on. If not then motor is bad or something stuck in impeller area. Please leave feedback.
