Question about Kenmore 24 in. 15932 Built-in Dishwasher
There are lights flashing on the panel and the cycle has not finished. I saw one of your other posts that said to push high temp scrub--air dry--high temp scrub-- air dry or sani rinse---air dry---sani rinse---air dry. I tried both since the first one did nothing. I started the dishwasher early this afternoon and after about an hour I noticed the lights were blinking. at that time I opened the door and shut it again several hours later the cycle started again and now has stopped with the normal wash, high temp scrub, sani rinse and drying buttons flashing. HELP!!
If the reset procedure (those buttons you pressed) didn't work, it's because the machine is still reading a fault. It could be a few things... water temperature too low (indicating a bad heating element), partial blockage of the drainage hose, or something preventing the spray arm from spinning. If letting it sit for a while allows it to start again, I suggest you do that. It will stop again and the lights will start blinking. When it does, open it up immediately and see how much standing water there is. If there is a lot, look for a blockage in the drainage hose. That's the most likely, I think, because it makes sense that it would work again once the water slowly drained. If there isn't much water, then see if the water that is there is hot. If it's not, then it's the heating element. Checking for movement of the sprayer arm is a bit trickier, as it won't be moving while the thing is open. Though, if the first two are not the problem, there's a good chance that is. Or, of course, it could be a malfunctioning control panel giving false errors. There's really no way to test for that, unfortunately - but I don't think it's acting like that is the problem.
