This applies mainly to Kenmore Dishwashers with the model number
665.15835791 but also to any Whirlpool or Kenmore dishwasher with an
electronic display. There are several possible trouble makers on this
dishwasher that can cause this problem and we'll go through the most
1.Bad Door Latch Switches.
There 2 switches you can buy them from online vendors.
2. Blown Thermal Fuse
The thermal fuse is located in the control panel, called out as
item #18 in this picture. You can check it with a simple continuity
test. Or you can jumper it out to see if the dishwasher will start
running normally. If it's bad, http://www3.sears.com/Paul/Leadimage.asp?productTypeID=0130000&brandID=0582&modelDesc=DISHWASHER&modelNumber=66515835791&documentID=10058594&documentTypeID=PLDM&documentClassCode=PM&titleType=FRAME%20AND%20CONSOLE&titleID=00001&
3.Control board problems can stem from **** and noise in the
dishwasher's electrical supply which make the electronics on the
control board go flakey. This problem has been documented by Whirlpool
in a tech memo (if your Kenmore model number begins with 665 then, yes,
Whirlpool made your dishwasher). Or, it could just be a bad control
board, plain n' simple.
The above one is a generic solution, also applicable for Kitchenaid Dishwashers.
