Question about Kenmore 15899 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Kenmore Ultra Wash #15779

I need your help. My Kenmore dishwasher's buttons are not working. The -lock- button keeps flashing and the manual says to hold the lock botton for few seconds and it will un-lock itself. I've done that several times but it will not work. The light goes off but goes back on again. None of the buttons seem to work either. I can cancel everything and it comes back on and it will not wash. Was this issue solved on the other problems.

Probably would need the full model number but it looks like you control board is defective.

Kenmore ultra wash dishwasher model 665.17779990 red 'lock on' flashing. Tried holding down 'no heat dry' button for a minute, unplugged for 30 minutes and neither worked. Please help!!


Hi, I'm sorry to hear that.
It sounds like you may have a stuck button on the keypad that's preventing you to unlock it.
If that was the case, a new panel would be needed. Best of luck.

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.

Kenmore dishwasher ultra was quiet guard 3 model 56516012403 control panel will not activate red lights blinking on normal wash and cancel drain. did the hold the heat dry button then the normal wash...


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

I have a kenmore Elite Ultra Wash Dishwasher that won't run. The lights for the various wash and dry options come on, but when I push the start button, it flashes green three times and then goes off.


Sounds like a safety - lock is operating.

Close and press start button - keep button derpressed untill machine actually starts - maybe 8 seconds or so.

If this does not do it, unplug for 24 hours then try again.

Kenmore ultra wash quiet guard 3 dishwasher problem


call sears, 1-800-4MY-HOME. They have a trouble-shooting department that will get rid of this problem. It is caused by water temperature being wrong at the start of the cycle.... blah, blah, blah. The representative will tell you to push a certain set of buttons in a certain order and that unlocks the dishwasher.

Sorry I don't know the sequence
