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.

Most washers have 2 motors (Main washer motor and pump out motor in line with outlet pipe). You need to have washer switched off and works easier when on a small table. You need to open back bottom pannel and side pannels. Both motors have push on electrical connectors and are mounted on removable rubber mountings. Disconnect the pipes (clamps)to the motors electrical connectors and pull from rubber mountings.
You say "electrical installation checked OK"...is the machine hard wired into a junction box or does it plug into an outlet?
If in a wall socket the new house circut may be on a wall switch which is currently off. If it is plugged into a GFI outlet it may have tripped, Find another power source to wire to, GFI plugs and dishmachines just don't get along, Learned that some time ago!
There may be an issue with your door safety switch on the unit.
Check for voltage where the house wires are wire capped in the machine if hard wired, sometimes twisting those can cause issues.
I doubt your machine has a reset switch but many hobart units have on on the motors.
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 Part3376359 has been replaced by 675813.At sears it cost about $12.00 and you get instuctions to replace.I just did mine and now it works.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.
I had a similar issue, I removed the lower spray arm (had to hold center plastic tab with pliers and then unscrewed and lifted up the arm). Then I removed the cover with the screen filter(4 screws) and then removed the top half of the stainless chopper housing (1 screw). Found that things like cherry pits, elastic bands, bread plastic ties had blocked the water inlet to the chopper and the area around the chopper blade. Cleaned it all up, reassembled and machine works great! Mine was so blocked that I was hardly getting any water pressure to the upper rack.
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.
