Question about Kenmore 24 in. 15142 Built-in Dishwasher
Hi, My Kenmore Dishwaser 665.17979301 will not start. The cancel/drain button is the only thing that is working and it makes a noise as if trying to do something but that can't be good. I few years back it would not start and I tried a reset sequence that I found online and that worked but I can't find it again. Would appreciate if you know it or can tell who I can get it from. I can't find anything in my manual. Thanks. Sue
Try pushing the Sani-Rinse and Air Dry buttons back and forth a number of times.

I knew it was a sequence too, but wasn't for sure what it was...but, I pushed the water heat button, then the no dry heat button, 2 times, ..then..ALL of the buttons lit up...I pushed cancel. Let is sit for a bit, pushed the normal wash button, and then, the dishwasher worked great thru all its cycles. Mine is a sears kenmore ultrawash with quiet guard system...around 10 years old.

SOURCE: Kenmore Dishwasher won't drain
If you opened and closed the door and it started, that sounds like a bad, door switch in the console.
But you did hear a hum sound when it tryed to drain, it could be the drain solenoid, or the motor/pump assembly.
Take off the bottom access and look at the solenoid when it starts to drain, the piston in the solenoid should move freely, up and down with the white drain flapper that it connects to.
Also check for bad wiring connections at the power junction box where the power hooks up to it under the dishwasher, i have seen the wire nuts either come loose or burn off due to loose connections.
