It appears your dispenser wax switch has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

I just purchased a Kenmore dishwasher model 665.1303 and the door will not close. It seems like the mechinism on the door is locked not allowing the latch on the dishwasher to ingage in the lock on the...


Yes, that can happen. That latch is like the latch on your car door. You can trigger it, and then you can't close the door. But on your car, you can reset the latch by pulling the handle; your dishwasher doesn't have a handle, But you might be able to get a thin screwdriver in the latch and pry it back open. But I have found that once this happens, it tends to happen again. The best thing to do is replace the latch. If it's still under warranty, call Sears and arrange for them to send out a service man to fix it.

Kenmore 16163 401 dishwasher


The dispenser flap should be spring loaded to spring open if the lock is released. If it doesn't spring open you should make sure that the spring is placed correctly on the hinge of the flap - if it doesn't spring open it won't get the detergent where it needs to go during the wash. We had the same thing.
