Kenmore ultra wash dishwasher only half of the lights light up when pressed when press start nothing happens


Do you mean only half of the lights that you push stay on ? If I try to push in too many buttons at the same time, or the cycles I push don't function together, that some of them stay off because they aren't programmed to run at the same time. And the machine is set up to not allow you to expect it to do all the functions during the same cycle.

Why do my machine flashes red lights when pluged in AC and nothing else works ?


Replace doorlock and mainboard.
If all five spin cycle buttons flash, its a fatal error.
It depens on which wash button that ligths up.
One of them is doorlock error, the other is main board error

04 Escalade w / Valet Starter, all works but door locks


Hello 7suds,

Well, I'd go back and tell them about the doorlock problem. I know that 2 years is a little late to start complaining, but it's most likely a really easy fix.

The most probably causes are that the power doorlock output was either not programmed, programmed incorrectly, or it's not connected or improperly connected to the vehicle servos. Have the installer check the programming, especially the doorlock pulse duration. It's also possible that the remote is simply not sending the doorlock signal. Could just be a bad button. Have them switch the doorlock function to the right "AUX" button temporarily and see if that works. But in any case, the system needs to be tested to find out exactly what is causing the doorlock failure.

Hope this helps.

When I push in the program little hole, a red light used to come on .


There is possibly some soda or something sticky blocking the connection. Put some 91% alcohol on a q-tip and work it around the button to break up any sticky food stuffs.

9 out of 10 button problems I see is due to Soda,Tea,Candy,Baby Saliva.
