SOURCE: My Kenmore diswasher gets stuck between the quick rinse and drying cycle

I am having the same issue as described above. I think it is either the timer, thermostat (temp assure), or thermostat (temp boost) that needs replacing. The dial gets stucks in both the wash temp boost cycle and rinse temp boost cycle. However, I don't have a picture of the temp assure or boost part. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks. -Bill

SOURCE: Kenmore Dishwasher #587.... doing nothing but heat dry

The problem appears to stem from the float and float switch. The float is a mushroom shaped plastic part that resides on the bottom left, just inside the door. It appears that the float does not release the float switch, causing the dishwasher to think it is full of water, and won't allow the dishwasher to fill. It's a relatively straight forward repair, but even with a new part, the same scenario is likely to repeat itself until the float or float switch is modified by Kenmore.

I think that the valve assembly in the end of your attachment hose is having problems, check with Kenmore and see if a replacement one is available and if your dishwasher is new enough perhaps it might be under warranty?

Here's a link to your model, showing exploded diagrams and parts lists, for future reference.

And your manual.

I found similar Kenmore dishwashers on Consumer Reports with around 135 to 145 minutes for a normal wash cycle and around 5 to 6 gallons per wash. A quick wash would take somewhat less, depending on the model. But not much less. I think you are OK. Because dishwashers are using less water these days, they count on longer wash times to produce the same effect.

Best regards, --W/D--

How to reset control panel on model 587.1517 kenmore dish washer


From what I have read elsewhere, the interrupt *may* have something to do with a thermostat circuit cutting out if the entry hot water is too high ( more than 145F) - it seems like a buggy safety feature i.e. the circuit board thinks that the water heater is overheating. The makers have apparently made changes to the control board to fix this bug but it costs serious $$$ to get a repairman in and buy the new board.

I prefer to use the reset code, and keep my water temp lower when using it.

Please provide model number of the kenmore dishwasher.

Is there water in the base when the wash is complete? There could be couple of pumps in some Kenmore dishwashers - so hard to know which one until model number is known.

My Kenmore elite dishwasher 665.13793K600 has 2 problems: 1. won't drain water 2. won't even start working today Please help!


I have a Kenmore model # 665.13793K600 and it has been having a small puddle of water remaining in the bottom at the end of each cycle. I've taken it apart and cleaned it. I'm thinking I may have the drain hose incorrectly positioned or it could even be something unrelated. I can only think of the drain because I replaced the kitchen faucets a coupe of months ago and it could be since then that this has been happening.

Dishwasher leaks during the wash and rinse cycles from the front


Without knowing the model number of this Sears Kenmore dishwasher, it is difficult to be specific in a solution.
There is a float/switch that controls the amount of water added before each wash or rinse cycle. Replacing that float would be the first step.
Can not be more specific without knowing the model number.
