Question about Kenmore 15762 Dishwasher

1 Answer

Press START and nothing happens

When you press start nothing happens, the drain function works and all other lights come on....is there a mechanism in the latch that would keep the start button from working? It sounds like it is closing properly but the latch sounds different when you open the dishwasher, sort of like it is stuck or something, any help would be appreciated...Thanks

Yes the door has a safety switch that will keep the machine from starting, this is most likely the problem.

    The wires that you see in the picture come with the switches, it is actually a door switch repair kit. As far as any other parts (and these parts), I would suggest opening up the door and inspect everything before buying any parts; you may just find something misaligned or popped out of place. If you have a multi-meter or a continuity tester then you can test the switches while you're in there. Don’t forget to turn off the power before disassembling it.

Clean light flashes constanly. Won't clear out to start new cycle


If the clean light flashes 7 times, pauses, then repeats...

When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it will stop working and lock the functions (clean light flashes 7 times, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.

To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...

-high temp wash
-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry

...all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle finish (1-2 minutes).
You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.

If the issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit (ie. element, thermostat or wiring). It rarely happens but it could also be the door switch not engaging properly when the door is closed (slightly bend the door latch down making sure it doesn't hit the door when you close it).

Dishwasher doesn't want to fill


Hello Dianne...I'll take a shot here.. chances are that the door interlock ( switch ) is disabling the dishwasher from starting.. it may be damaged or disconnected.. and as long as you are sure you have a water supply to the dishwasher,.. that's where I would start...If that switch is NOT made.. the dishwasher will not start... Hope that helps

Bosch Dishwasher won't drain, cancel drain lights blink


when you said "I can run a wash", does the machine act normal for that time frame up to the point of drain? if yes, the pump is fine. sounds more like the micro chip on the board is "confused", but not sure why.
