Question about Dishwashers
I have a Kenmore Elite dishwasher - model# 665.16933000 that does not react when I press the 'start' button. I can select wash cycles, and the appropriate time appears, but pressing the 'start' button doesn't kick it on, and after 30secs all lights go dead. Ran the diagnostic mode and all cycles seemed to work fine, even the heating coil was hot, and water was heard entering and draining. Assumed it was the control board, but have a suspicion it may be a bigger issue since the few cycles that did work, prior to it going dead, did not wash well and didn't even dissolve the detergent tablet (very unusual). Anybody have a solution for this problem? would like to hear from you. Thanks in advance.
Here is a trick I have found on the net:
Try pushing the normal wash and heated dry buttons back and forth This will reset the dishwasher. Not shure if it for your model but it may work. Hope this helps! :}

Anyway, you'll have to take the door apart to the get to 'em. Once you do, look up top and they're located here. When you pull out the whole door latch assembly, it all looks like this here.
Now, if one of these door switches are bad, you'll usually be able to see a burnt wire and one of the switches will be obviously AFU 'cause it won't click when actuated. 'Course, it's always a good idea to verify with your ohm meter. If one of the switches are fried, don't be a bonehead and just change the bad switch. Save yourself some trouble down the road (and avoid an unpleasant dishwasher fire) by changing both switches and the wire harness. You can buy the whole replacement kit here.
