Question about Kenmore Dishwashers

Open Question

Kenmore 665.15772/etc. built-in dishwasher. Controls are acting funny. "Lock" light comes on unexpectedly. Cannot initiate wash cycle, even after turning off "lock" light. Other lights appear erratically when trying to push "No-heat dry" etc. I suspect problem with control module. Please advise.

To prevent a child from accidently starting the dishwasher there is a child lockout feature. Press and hold the Rinse and Hold pad (certain models) or the No Heat dry pad (certain models) for # seconds to Lock or UnLock the controls

SOURCE: Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher: Lock On Button Issue

Have to hold the Air Dry button down til your finger hurts. Release button and the light will go off. The "4 second press" in the manual is incorrect!

Disconnect your circuit breaker for 20 minutes and then reset. It should reset your dishwasher.

the sears repair techs know becouse the are trained on all this things but, they will not share this things, becouse thats how they make money

I too had problems with the Kenmore Elite (aka Bosch). The issue was solved by replacing the Lock Sensor on the door. After replacing the sensor the dishwasher has been working. Hope this helps.

Does this dishwasher have a lock button?


Hello - Yes, it does have a child lock control. It is design to prevent children from accidently change the dishwasher cycle or starting the dishwasher. It locks the dishwasher controls by pressing and releasing the DELAY TIME icon for 3 seconds. Do you see an indication lock light on your dishwasher illuminate? It will usually appear when the controls are locked and no new selections can be made until the lock is released. To unlock the controls, press the DELAY TIME icon under the indicator light goes out.

Kenmore dishwasher 665-1703 wont stop washing


Unfortunatly you are looking at the timer which is now built into the controller which would need to be replaced. If the relays are fused shut on the timer or the gears are missing some teeth then you will only get sofar I the cycle and the washer will just stay where it's. Sorry

It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors or feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/PUMP MOTOR/DRAIN to work when it is commanded .If this does not happen then the voltage at these points must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage/drive from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

Check how to remove the control panel: http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/dishwashers/a/3/1287/how-to-replace-a-hotpoint-dishwasher-fascia-p.html

Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.

that would be model # 66516012403 correct??
you may have inadvertently set the lock on function..
check this out from your manual...

Lock On
Use the Lock On to prevent unintended use of the dishwasher
between cycles. You can also use the lock feature to prevent
unintended cycle or option changes during a cycle.
When LOCK ON is lit, all buttons are disabled.
NOTE: The dishwasher door can be opened while the controls
are locked. However, the lock must be turned off and the Start/
Resume button pressed to resume the cycle.
To turn on the Lock
Press and hold HEATED DRY for 4 seconds. LOCK ON glows.
If you press any pad while your dishwasher is locked, the light
flashes 3 times.
NOTE: If the Heated Dry option is selected, the light will
temporarily turn off until Lock On glows.
To turn off the Lock
Press and hold HEATED DRY for 4 seconds. The light turns off.

hope this helps,
best of luck,
ttfn

Try pushing and holding the "Air Dry" button for at least 4 seconds. This should turn the control lock off.

Sounds like the electronic controls (smart card) are acting up. Try shutting off the power at your fuse box or shut off the circuit breaker for 1 minute them turn the power on again. This fix quite often works on electronic appliances.
