Just moved into a new home which had a kenmore 16032 installed in the home. Checked all the hoses and the electrical connections and everything looks good. Can clearly see dishwasher is getting power and water value has been turned on, however when hitting start cycle, dishwasher does nothing and normal cycle blinks. What needs to be done in order to get this dishwasher to function?
push start hold down air dry and start until lights blink and machine starts then it should work normal
most dishwashers have an instruction booklet behind the botton panel that is nearest the floor you wll have to remove the panel it has a couple of screws. the booklet should be there unless installer took it.

It could be the wires or switch in the hose and/or the connection between the hose and the vacuum. It could be the power cord or a loose or bad wire inside the canister. It could be the carbon brushes in the motor are worn out. To find a short or electrical problem you need to know how to trace the power flow from the plug and cord all the way to the motor. You can test the wiring in the hose with an electrical tester to see if there is a problem with it before you purchase a new one.
A burst hose or a broken hose connector clamp most likely. Open the back after disconnecting power. Use bright flashlightto see where its dripping from and confirm the hose-clamp is brokem/ open or a connecting hose is burst. Carry broken hose to hardware store like Rona for a replacement tubing, cut to size and re-instal, voila!
If it acts like theres no power to the dishwasher,and youve checked the breaker or outlet and there is power to the washer then the thermal fuse is blown. Part3376359 has been replaced by 675813.At sears it cost about $12.00 and you get instuctions to replace.I just did mine and now it works. And not realy that hard to do
Check the drain hose connection under the washer. make sure the hose hasn'tseparated form the drain housing. if the drain hose is not the leak spot, move on to the water valve assembly. check the connection there thoroughly. check the seals on theconnectionhose as well. if all checks out, this will most likely be a faulty water valve assembly.
When my husband came home he took the washer apart and it was the pump. Small pin hole leak in this glob of gray sealer that seals the two plastic parts together. Just been waiting to fail, I'm sure. Thanks for your help.
Washers n dryers usually require some balancing after a move to the new area, and when you lift the washer on a dolly, you lift it from the rear. Assuming you've already tipped the washer slighlty to one side, checked the bottom for which side has the most metal underneath. This is best done with 2 people. Do the same with the dryer. The braces are used to help balance or to keep from tipping when the machine was packed inside a large box.
With the machine unplugged and EMPTY disconnect the water and waster water connection from the wall and tip it forward you should then be able to access the pump. Check the hoses running to the pump. (usually white plastic with 2 large and 1 small hose running to it.. you can also just move it away from the wall with it completely connected and run it thru a cycle to see where it is leaking from.
the water must pump uphill to the air gap. the last water in the line drops down the hose, and is in quantity equally to the volume of the hose from the bottom of the pump to the top of the hose. that flows to the bottom of the sump in the unit. if enough, it appears as residual water in the bottom. its ok.
Suggestion: You dont need any special outlet. With a tester (you can get this in any electric shop) see if there is power in the outlet. You said it was hot?? It is not supposed to be hot. Try another outlet; & you could unscrew your machine plug to see if all the three wires are okay, ie. well connected, screwed in.
