Kenmore Ultra wash mod.# 665-77963K703. normal wash light flashing. How do I reset.


How many times does it blink before pausing and repeating? 7 times? (That's a common problem - means "water not heating" error.) In some dishwashers, instead of pressing Heated Dry, Normal Wash, Heated Dry, Normal wash, you press the 3 left-most keys in the following order: 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3. That will start the diagnostic cycle and clear the error, but if you don't find and fix the cause, the problem will come back the next time you run the DW. But before I try to explain how to fix the root cause, I would need to know how many times the light is blinking.

No, don't run Coca-Cola in it! I would call a repairman immediately - you may have a rubber hose that is disintegrating, and you dishwasher could start leaking seriously!

Leaks under left hand side of door; I've installed 2 new gaskets in last 2 weeks & new float switch; doesn't leak underneath


Check for cracks in the inside liner of the door itself. Seal anything that looks like a potential leak with silicone sealer. I'm providing this advice because you have already eliminated the other possibilities I can think of. If it has a soap dispenser on the door check for leaks around that especially.

Kenmore elite model 16574


press (high temp-wash) button and then ( heated dry)
do that 3 times in that order within 5 seconds. So it looks like this:

(high temp-wash) ( heated dry) (high temp-wash) ( heated dry) (high temp-wash) ( heated dry)

That will start a short diagnostic cycle (last about 2 minutes) that will clear the blinking light and allow you to use the dishwasher. If the light comes back, your drying cycle has failed and you will need service.

Kenmore Quiet Guard Dishwasher only starts when pressing start repeatidly


No personal experience with this machine, but two things come immediately to mind:
1. If the door latch is not quite closed then the machine still thinks it is open and thus will not start. Try gently pushing on the door as you push the start button. If no joy, then check to make sure that the latch mechanism (what can be seen of it - usually very little!) has no food deposits on it.
2. The start button contacts may be corroded. Try pushing the start button more firmly - and wiggle it at the same time.

Leaking from the door


This has happened to us a few times. There is a gasket inside the door for a solenoid that operates the flap that opens to let dishwasher detergent out. The gasket went bad and water leaked through.

The only thing to do is replace the gasket. It's a $8 part. (A lot for a 1 inch square gasket!) They seem to last about 2-3 years.
