If my thermostat heater is "open" would that keep my kenmore dryer from heating? The schematic on back says I should read 5600-8400 ohms


YES
it is an open circuit (broken) and there is not current flow
could be a failed heater element
could be the thermostat is stuck in the full heat position and is in the switch element off mode
check the element for service or replace the thermostat control

Kenmore ultra wash dishwasher gets stuck at 42 on the control panel


Be aware that all (well, almost all) dishwashers have a "thermal hold" period in their cycles. This is the point in the main wash cycle where the heater is turned on to heat the water to the optimum wash temperature (about 150 to 160 deg F), and during this time, the timer will stop advancing. Once the water has reached the desired temperature, the cycle will continue. IF it does not, then you have a water heating problem. This could be caused by a bad heating element, a bad controller, a bad thermostat or temperature sensor.

I have a kenmoer 66516039402 dishwasher. It is stuck in clean mode the clean light just flashes and the dishwasher will not start a new wash.what can I do to fix it.


Re: clean light blinks seven times on Kenmore Dishwasher model # 66516034401

After reading online and studying the parts diagram/list (included with paperwork that came with washer) and troubleshooting guide/wiring schematic (located under the bottom front kick panel) I determined it could only be 5 things, all easy to look at and check when you pull out the dishwasher (remove racks first and cut power via the circuit breaker).

They are heating element, wiring check for burn marks/melting), high limit thermostat (mounted on bottom of tub against tub, detects if tub overheats), thermistor (screw in mount near motor, detects process temp inside dishwasher, and the control panel. Unfortunately, I started buying and replacing the parts piecemeal (first high limit thermostat, then thermistor, then heating element, even though it tested good). Only then did I remove the panel (top 6 screws inside door, no need to remove the whole door panel) and check the circuit board. After separating the circuit board from its plastic case that covers the back of the board, I saw that the back of the board was badly burned/blackened about the size of a fifty cent piece around the heater circuit relay (this was not visible from the front). Bingo. I should have done a comprehensive check first and save $100 on parts that were probably good. When ordering online, the circuit board part was changed, perhaps to an improved part if the relay burning out is a common problem. Good luck.

Dishwasher cycle runs: tablet is not dissovlved, dishes dirty


If the dry cycle has a problem, check these:

Heating element
Drying fan
Thermostat
Heating element Your dishwasher has an electrical heating element that helps to dry the dishes. If the element is burned out, the dishes won't dry properly, and you need to replace the element.

Drying fan Many high-priced dishwashers have a small fan that blows air or heated air into the dishwasher to speed up the drying process. If the fan is defective, you need to replace it.

Thermostat Some dishwashers have a thermostat that monitors the drying temperature. If the thermostat is defective, the heating element may not cycle on or off properly. If that's the problem, you need to replace the thermostat.

Heating element broken, water leaking


You have to pull out dishwasher to replace the element.The element is easy to replace once you have pulled dishwasher out.This enables you to reach the area that you need to reach.It is common for a element to brake.On a newer dishwasher ,I would say it must have been defective if it just broke in half.Nothing electrical in a dishwasher can cause it to brake.
