Question about Kenmore 15899 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Kenmore Ultra Wash Model 665.15801891 (Serial FJ3403697). This is in the USA. Unit will not run. Two lights are lit on the display panel and do not go off - 'Drying' and the #2 on 'Delay Hours'.\r\n I have turned off the power at the breaker box hoping it would reset. Once power is turned back on the Lock light comes on. I can clear that by pressing 'No Heat Dry' for 4 seconds but then the 2 lights mentioned above come on and do not go off. Any suggestions? Can you tell how old the unit is by the serial #? This is in my mom's house and trying to save repair bill if I can fix myself and if not is it just old and more economical to replace the unit? Thanks for your help!

Plase confirm if your model has the same front panel as the one shown in this manual.
In that case try this sequence to reset the dishwasher.

pots & pans/ no heat dry/ pots & pans/ no heat dry in succession within 8-10 secs.

The unit may be about 5-7 years old but I am not sure.

The parts are still available from sears and other online stores.

Try this one.

Anything can be fixed and as you see the part costs is not too much and are available. It is a matter of finding what is going wrong. Are you able to find out what was the last operation it was going through when the lights appeared. Was there any water left in the dishwasher at that time.

You have to remember this model needs inlet water temperature to be around 120def F otherwise it could struggle.

Kenmore Ultra Wash 665 dishwasher: start button not lighing


It sounds like you have a bad control console, and the problem is that your START button (the most critical one!) is bad. You can't replace just that button or key; you have to replace the entire control console.

I'm not sure if they have the model you need, but applianceart.com has alot of panel options and some are adhesive and some are magnetic. They also have stainless steel panels. These guys would be good to solve your problem.
