Does the Kenmore Elite Dishwasher 630.16303403 model have a child lock? And if so, how do I engage it? I have 2 year old triplets and my wife is going crazy! Thanks.

SOURCE: kenmore elite dishwasher noise

I had the same problem where rubber gasket that seals the motor bearings leaked water into the bearing and rusted out the bearing.

I scrapped the motor into every little pieces and extracted the bearing and just replace it. Now it is quiet as a mouse.

You need a bearing puller to get the bearing out for about $20 and the bearing is $6.
During the repair i slightly bent the shaft and i didn't straightened it properly so it wobbles a bit. But it works and if really quiet.

I have a Kenmore Elite double oven, model 790.48123801.(4 years old). My wife attempted to operate the self-cleaning feature and 29 seconds later an F90 error message appeared, the oven began to beep


Oven door latch error code. The oven door latched but the control board did not receive a signal that the door was latched.
The only time that the latch is used is during the cleaning cycle.

Kenmore elite washer not starts just blinking lights.


What light(s) blink? How many times to they blink? Do they blink all the time, or just when you press a key? If it's just 1 light that blinks 3 times whenever you press a key, then you have the child-lock (or control-lock) function turned on. If you look at your control console closely, you should see some key near the lock symbol (frequently the Heated Dry key), with the notation "hold 3 seconds". Press and hold that key for 3 to 4 seconds to de-activate the child-lock.

I have a 3022 13929991 Ken Elite Dishwasher - I need to know where i can pull up a mannual got this at Sears Outlet Control lock is on and i can't get it off thanks for your help


Normally you should press the child lock for about 6 secs to turn it off. But if there is a fault in dishwasher then child lock light will be on or flashing.

This means some diagnostics is required to find the cause of the fault.
However, I don't think you have provided the correct model number of your kenmore elite dishwasher.
Normally it should be 665.xxxx Please check the model number carefully and post a comment.

Hello,

Here are the instructions to set and unset the child lock.

Setting the Child Lock:
1. Press the Sensor Dry or Lock pad and hold for
three seconds.
2. An indicator light next to the lock graphic will
illuminate when the controls are locked.
To cancel:
1. Press the Sensor Dry or Lock pad and hold for

Kenmore Elite Dishwasher Model# 665.15912001


Yeah, I have a similar problem. I tried to go into a suggested diagnostic run, but that didn't yield anything. I tried pushing the Sani-Rinse and Air Dry buttons back and forth a number of times. Didn't help.
At first I thought the lock-on had accidently been engaged, but disengaging the "child lock" doesn't help. The lock-on light comes back on and sometimes blinks rapidly. I"ve counted around 7 rapid blinks at times and 3 rapid blinks at other times--in case that makes a difference. The control panel doesn't work--in other words, the dishwasher does not start, even when I can successfully get other lights to come on. I don't want to spend >$100. for a new control panel if that is not really the problem.
