Kenmore 24 in. 15689 Built-in Dishwasher - Answered Questions & Fixed issues


I just had this problem and it was bad. No matter what I did, the DW would not run. Finally, I found and checked the float switch. Actually, I didn't even know what a float switch looks like. Fortunately, I found a YouTube video that showed what a float switch looks like. My float switch was actually fine. However, a small piece of plastic had gotten jammed under it. I removed the piece of plastic and now everything works. Really easy to resolve in my case.

As NECESSARY as a GFI (Ground Fault Interrupter) would be if ONE were prone to stuffing a fork into a plugged in toaster... full of flaming toast... while reclined in a bathtub full of bubble bath...

Seriously... a decade ago+

We had a machine MALFUNCTION... WHICH was covered BY OUR INSURANCE (included code coverage)... topped $50K... We added an additional $50, 000.00 to get things up to snuff :appliances & stuff... back to normal (with a few upgrades)... Six months later.

(environmental asbestos and lead tests... demolition... marital deprivation... no heat (practically camping) in the winter and a 62 mile one way commute... when I could rejoin my wife... unkind).

If you tamper with safety equipment... (a "DELIBERATE" act)
you will be taking all that expense on YOURSELF...

That is not adjusted for INFLATION... and assumes no one is killed or injured in the catastrophe that is guaranteed to follow... I'm just saying.

Try this instead...
Playing catch with a loaded black-powder antique flintlock would be faster, cheaper, kinder and smarter.

Just my humble opinion.

Check your wash arms - make sure the holes or nozzels are clear (not blocked), and make sure they are free to turn. Make sure you are not over-loading the dishwasher or placing large plates or pans in front of the soap dispenser. Next is to check to see if enough water is going into the DishWasher (DW). This varies with different models, so it's hard to tell you how much is enough. Next thing to check is to make sure the heater is working to heat the water during the wash cycle. (Listen for the soap dish to open, then open the door 10 or 15 minutes later and see if the water is hot.) If your dishwasher has a removable filter, you need to take that out and clean it at least once a month.

I would say it's worth getting a Professional to repair the door. It saves a lot of time and effort in the long run...and money! We had the same problem and no way could we have fixed it ourselves.

So I would guess you can't get it to work at all? It could be the circuit which is inside the door....I would never suggest anyone fix these things themselves. It's always fairly expensive but worth it for peace of mind knowing a job professional done.

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

please follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

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 Electronic
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

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

I had the same flashing light problem first the normal wash flashing light then the others. I tried shuting of the breakers but nothing. I tried resetting the panel by pushing normal wash and heated dry simultaneously and nothing. So I took the six screws holding the front panel out and unplugged the ribbon type wires and plug and unplugged it several times to help make a better contact and I was able to get it to work right away. This may not work for all but I worked for me. It is very easy to do and it's worth a try if you're having the same problem. It took me less then 10 minutes. I had the problem for several days and could not use the dishwasher not mater what tried until I did what I described above. Now I have to see how long it lasts.

QuietGuard3: Clean light flashing 7 times? Press Heated Dry, press Normal Wash, then press Heated Dry again and press Normal Wash again (that's 4 button-presses) and that should fix it.

Look in the inside for any screen that would be easily removed, some dishwashers have a self cleaning filter so you may not find it. I have a lot of other tips for you if your dishwasher is not cleaning so check it out.

make sure your rinse agent aka : Jet Dry is full and water is hot enough.

Hi

The issue is with the water not draining as something might be blocking the drain pump assembly thus the water is leaking. To solve this issue you'll have to take the front lower access panel out and then clean the drain pump assembly completely, also clean the impeller and chopper assembly located at the bottom of the unit. After this is done the issue should be resolved, if not then check the float switch mechanism and make sure that is fine. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Hello,

If your model has a JETDRY rinse agent dispenser be sure to use it..if it does not have that dispenser and just only the detergent dispenser use the JETDRY in the dry version that is in a little basket and hangs on the upper rack.

Does it leak during pump-out only?
If so , must be drain hose .To see everything,remove kick plate to isolate leak. Check hose connections. Fill and drain and observe.Or run a whole cycle with kick plate off to find leak.





Good luck

The store is correct. There is not a POSITIVE seal in that area, but rather a passive seal, by overlap. It works well and allows the unit to breathe during use...
But when something else goes amok, water escapes there...
Look at:
  1. Levelness of the machine.
  2. Inlet water volume, machines these days use surprisingly little water.
  3. Correct soap. Anything but automatic dishwasher soap will foam out tons.
The issue is almost always one of the above.
