Question about Kenmore 16602 / 16604 / 16609 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Kenmore 16604 In the middle of washing it stopped. No lights will come on and it appears to have no power. I checked the breaker, it's OK. All other appliances and circuits are working in the kitchen. Is there a reset button I can't find? Help!!

    Wires melted underneath. Cut burnt wires and replaced wire nuts.

    Thanks.

No reset button. Most likely, the thermal fuse went out. This happens if the water inside gets too hot. The thermal fuse is clipped to the electronic board behind the console. The heater thermostat is underneath the tub on the right side. The parts should cost about $25.00 total.
OR: the connection inside the connection box melted itself apart (installation error.) This happens, but not very often. Turn off the breaker. Remove the toe panel and the cover over the terminal box. Physically inspect the connections. You'll know immediately if this is the problem.

Good luck!

Re-Set the control panel


if you are getting blinking lights on your console you may want to open up the door and visually look inside of the middle portion of your console and you'll observe an opening. this opening is where the latch and strike comes together to enaged power to the power board. you can take a butter knife and press the latch hooks downward. when you press the latch hooks(located on the latch then look at the front side of your console panel (at the same while holding the butter knife inside the latch keeping the latch hooks press down, press a wash cycle (normal, rinse, potspans, etc) and see if there is any more flashing. If not, then there is a bad connection with the latch.

No power light comes on


bone, you probably have a blown thermal fuse that is located on the control board, easy fix. First check your wiring to the diswasher behind the bottom panel. I will attach a photo..Catriver..post back.
