Question about Dishwashers

Kenmore dishwasher various problems

I have a kenmore portable diswasher model # 655.17761891

It was rinsing after the 'normal' wash cycle and it just stopped. I turned the knob to different places (wash, rinse, drain, etc) and it would not do anything. I checked to make sure it was plugged in correctly.

Since it is doing this, it will not drain.

A day later I closed door on it, and it worked (the rinse cycle where it stopped the day before) . It heated the water first, but was really slow in running.

It finished rinsing but will not drain. I tried to put it back to wash, rinse, etc and it will not do anything again.

THANKS!!

The portable dishwashers of the 70's and 80's often had one area of problem, and that was the pump getting jammed with debris and food.

To eleminate this problem, you will need to open up your dishwasher carefully, and drain all the water and gunk from your dishwashers rinse hose. I recommend taking the machine outside and use a low setting pressure hose (garden hose). With the hose off the rinse side, run the water through and see if it comes out of the pump's housing. Let it run for a few minutes.

The pump also has a switch that also goes with the run cycle. This switch thinks there is not enough water or it thinks it has done its job.

Sometimes replacing the timer helps, but first eliminate the lower hose situation first. If that doesn't help, you will need to then replace timer. If this doesn't help, most likely your pump is most likely jammed or malfunctioning.

Kenmore dishwasher model #665 15872000 is stuck on time saver option for washing and I can't get it to switch to any of the other options such as normal wash


Similar Kenmore Dishwasher 665.18664000. Time saver and Quick rinse were the only programs that would run. I pressed "high temp scrub" then "air dry" then "high temp scrub" then "air dry" and the machine went into a diagnostic mode and counted down from 10 while running a series of tests. After about 10 minutes and various test cycles the machine reset and the "normal wash" light had come back on. If this doesn't work then you may have a problem with the controller which other threads have mentioned replacing yourself for about $120.

Kenmore Dishwasher 665.15895791 will not drain


what sani-rinse does is turn the heater back on in the rinse cycle. You first should check the heater for voltage either at the start of the first cycle or do a ohms check.

665.17019401 - Kenmore diswasher


It indicates a water temp problem. If water temp doesn't rise at a certain rate, by the heater, it goes into this error. Probably a problem with heater or wires to it.

My Kenmore diswasher gets stuck between the quick rinse and drying cycle


I am having the same issue as described above. I think it is either the timer, thermostat (temp assure), or thermostat (temp boost) that needs replacing. The dial gets stucks in both the wash temp boost cycle and rinse temp boost cycle. However, I don't have a picture of the temp assure or boost part. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks. -Bill
