Kenmore Dishwasher No Power Model 665-16769000

I have a Kenmore Dishwasher 665-16769000. We have replaced the circuit board 3 months ago and last night replace the touch pad. Since it had been sitting for 2 weeks I ran it empty. Today the dishwas will not start - - no lights nothing. Can you tell me what is the problem this time?

    Just replaced the circuit board again as a service tech explained that the board and the pad have to be replace same time. Dishwasher is still dead!

Try unplugging and replugging to reset (or, if the plug is too difficult to reach, reset the breaker)

SOURCE: dishwasher not filling

Yes you should have 120v to the valve so the problem is elsewhere. Possibly the control isn't sending the proper voltage but you will need a tech to verify as this board is about $130

The water may not be hot enough. Increase the temperature of the incoming hot water or try this: put the tab in the open soap cup so it will start to dissolve during the pre-wash. Then it will finish dissolving during the main wash. If the dishes get clean using this method you may not have to increase the water temp.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

Dishwasher not draining completely problem usually occurs due to clogged/blocked drain hose-filter assembly or the drain pump not working. First try to clean the drain hose and drain pump filter located inside the front bottom panel for any clogs, then check drain pump operation. Take off the bottom access panel to clean the drain pump filter and hose. If the problem returns after cleaning then it is the drain pump that needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Dishwasher does not start


I had this problem and solved it by merely switching the associated circuit breaker off and on again. Something of a "hard reboot." Annoying ... and ... if it happens repeatedly (tonight was the first time), someting I will pursue fixing while hte d/w is still under warrwentey (It was purchased/installed less than three months ago.)

Hi. We have the same problem. Dishwasher was installed about 3 months ago. There is an easy 'temporary' fix.

Completely turn off the dishwasher by flipping the circuit breaker to the off position. Wait a couple of seconds, and flip the circuit breaker back to the on position.

The dishwasher console must be getting into a bad state and not sensing the console panel buttons. The circuitry in the dishwasher is never really "off" as some amount of power has to be "on" to be ready to sense the touch panel. Turning the circuit breaker off and back on likely resets all the functions and makes the unit operable. We have been operating the dishwasher this way for about a month now. Luckily for us, the circuit panel is 3 steps away from the dishwasher...but this is getting old.

Hopefully this solves your problem ... reply back here one way or another...if this turns out to be a common problem & solution,it will give me more faith that Samsung will be convinced of a problem when I call them after the holidays.

I will look a bit further in detail about your dishwasher problem. I am assuming you have checked the inlet water tap to the dishwasher is turned on.

On off switch won't stay depressed on AEG dishwasher


Took unit apart and when I put it back it worked again. For how long who knows.

Access to the switch is difficult but by removing the printed circuit board, it seemed to allow the switch to work.

Kenmore model 66516352301 diswasher flashes Wash but won't start


I had a simular problem with my Kenmore. I unplugged it for an hour or so and it worked for a while. (Disconnect dishwasher from power befer attempting this procedure!) I ended up removing the inner door panel and removing the circuit board. I used a clean damp (distilled water preferred) paper towel and wiped down the entire circuit board surface. I paid special attention to the areas between the closely spaced component leads. I dried the board with a dry paper towel and re-installed the board. The dishwasher has preformed flawlessly for the past 4 months.

I believe that the mist and steam deposites a thin film of very conductive detergent and minerals on the board surfaces over time. The resulting electrical leakage paths "scrambles" the control's "brains".

I also noted that prior to my repair, most of the led cycle indicating lights were very dimly glowing with the room lights out. Also, the wash cycle ran for a much longer time.

Kenmore dishwasher no power


Check the following areas for faults.

1. No power to the dishwasher
Make sure there's power getting to the dishwasher. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the dishwasher (inside the junction box, behind the bottom kick panel), if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.

2. Door switch
Replace if defective.

3. Timer or control board
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

4. Selector switch
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

Lights blink, wont wash


almost certainly its the board again. If you do decide to replace it again, suggest you install a surge plug on your power cord. Does wonders when you have power fluctuations.

Kenmore Elite 17483 Dishwasher Caught Fire!


Had the exact same problem (Control panel burning up, sparking, and smoking during wash cycle) last night with our Kenmore Elite DW model 665.16293400 purchased Nov. 2004. I have reported it to the CPSC and www.kitchenaidfire.com and will be contacting Sears first thing tomorrow. It is outrageous that this problem is apparently so widespread with nothing being done about it! I have no doubt my kitchen would have been in flames if I had not been sitting right here to shut off power to the D/W.
