Hi there,

Well first of all you can check the door and make sure it is closed and locked. If door is not locked, the dishwasher will not operate. Listen for the door switch to "click" when the door is closed. If it doesn't, you may need to replace it. You can also try to reset the dishwasher by press these -
High Temp + heated Dry
High Temp + heated Dry
High Temp + heated Dry

Please post comments for further help or information......

Good Luck!!

I have a Kenmore Elite Smartwash QuitPak9 washer. I keep getting error messages 02F and Sud or 5ud . Seems washer will not drain , Can get it to drain sometime , no clog

its a suds sensor error. meaning tom much or the wrong detergent was used and it has clogged the wash cycle, you will have to try to run rinse cycles over and over to u clean it out if u can, some machines have an auto clean cycle for this problem, it is difficult to deal with as I have the same issue with one of mine and still not running right

Kenmore smartwash quietpak HE4t does not complete cycle and flashes F then H continuously

From what you're describing it sounds like the cold water line is blocked or restricted or the inlet electro valve is defective.. Most rinse cycles are cold fills. Another possibility is the drain hose is air tight or too low creating a siphon condition

I have a kenmore smartwash quietpak 9 HE 5T front loading washing machine for about 2 years. Today I did a load and the water will not drain from the washer so I had to pull the clothes out and wring the...

Likely the drain hose is kinked or blocked...Or the pump filter blocked or pump is faulty. Most likely the filter needs to be cleared. This should be accessed via a small hatch at floor level. Or behind the kickplate. unscrew filter and clean. Make sure the machine has no water in it. Leaning it back against the wall will help with visual inspection as well. Make sure coins haven't jammed in impeller. Good luck.....Nomess

Kenmore elite washer problem

sounds as if you have a drain issue, most common cause of fault is theres something stuck in the pump housing. remove the lower acess panel(3 screws along the bottom of the forn of unit) youll gain acess to the pump housing, remove the large cover to the "button trap" by uncscrewimg the cover, it will be righthin front of you in the center of machine when cover removed, im sure youll find your blockage within there
