Stuck on wash cycle

Our Kenmore Elite dishwasher seems to be stuck on the wash cycle. It doesn't matter what we choose- Smart wash, normal wash, pots and pans- it stays on that cycle for over an hour. I finally have to cancel and drain and do the quick rinse, but I can't get the dry cycle to kick in.

    I have the same problem. Somewhere I read there is a control that goes bad 'down by the pump'.

    My dishwasher stays on the wash cycle for hours and does not cycle through the rest of the rinse and dry operations. It is SO annoying and I'm sure a great waste of energy. I'm assuming the timer is malfunctioning or a solenoid valve is not working properly. Who do I call, how do I fix this?

Do you set your cycles by a manual timer or do you have a digital display?If a timer then it most likley bad or its stuck---if thats the case try wd40 behind it and see if it loosens,If your unit is digital then the control board is most likley bad,let me know.

Kenmore elite dishwasher model 630 Smart Wash light is flashing


You may want to try:
Press a series of four buttons in quick succession. Press "Heated Dry," "Normal Wash," "Heated Dry" and "Normal Wash" to instruct your Kenmore dishwasher to run a short diagnostic test.
Wait for two minutes while your Kenmore dishwasher runs its diagnostic test.
Press the "Cancel/Drain" button once your dishwasher has completed its diagnostic test. This should reset your dishwasher control panel.
Check to make sure that there's no standing water in the bottom of your dishwasher. Standing water in your dishwasher may indicate that your dishwasher has stopped mid-cycle. You will need to press the "Cancel/Drain" button before you can reset your dishwasher control panel.

Kenmore elite dishwasher has an error code f4e1


I had the F4E1 code on my Kenmore Elite 665x. This means a water leak. I eventually pulled the machine from the cabinet and noticed some water beneath the machine and the water pump hose loose. I reattached the pump hose using a new hose clamp and zip tied the pump in place to keep it from happening again. Afterwards I had to reset the machine by pushing the smart wash pots and pan then normal wash in sequential order 3 times then shut the door. The machine then does a diagnostic test. After the test I pushed the cancel button and it was ready to go.
Hope this helps someone else!

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.

I do nto have a solution- just the exact same problem. My machine gets stuck on 76 when doing a "normal wash" . last night I hit cancel and drain, then went to "time saver" and ran the wash and it seemed to work fine. Funny that both of our amchines stop at 76. Any ideas?
