Kenmore elite dishwasher - setting the default wash

Time to start the dishwasher (it works great!) - get eye glasses to be able to read the buttons, turn on the Smart Clean, Sani Clean, turn off the Hi Temp, and Heated Dry hit start.

Is there any way to set the Smart Clean & Sani Clean as the default. Then it is just hit start.

Select the desired cycle. If you want to run the last cycle that
was completed, you can simply press START once to show which
options you used, then press START again to start that same cycle.

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite dishwasher Options light up but nothing runs.

The blinking "clean light" is a common problem with some of the Kenmore and Whirlpool models dishwashers.
The problem is usually attributed to water supply temperatures being too low when filling.

Apparently, there are some issues with the temperature sensing circuits in some dishwashers that causes an error code to be generated if a certain water temperature is not achieved in a specified time interval (this time may differ between models).
There is a reset sequence that you can try to clear the fault.
Push the NORMAL WASH then HEATED DRY buttons in that sequence two to three times.
The unit will enter diagnostics mode, but can be stopped by pressing the CANCEL button.
This will clear any existing faults and should return the dishwasher to normal operation.

To keep the fault from returning, it is recommended that you run your hot water faucet in the kitchen until it runs hot BEFORE you start the dishwasher.
This will heat the water in the supply line for the dishwasher (most dishwashers are fed from the kitchen sink supply line).

The theory is that if you fill the dishwasher with hot water from the start of the wash cycle instead of the cool water that is normally in the lines (especially if you have a hot water tank located far away from the kitchen), this should satisfy the requirements of the temperature sensing circuits.
If the fault reappears, there should be a tech sheet located inside the lower panel under the door that explains what the fault is.
The flashing light will be a series of flashes, followed by a pause.
If you indeed have a component problem, it will depend on the number of flashing lights in the sequence.
Refer to the tech sheet to determine WHAT component is affected and how to troubleshoot.

Hi

This issue appears due to stuck keys on control keypad or due to moisture/shorted connections on the keypad. Sometimes this appears when the door is not closed or door lock switch is failing. Turn off the power to dishwasher, unplug the power cable from outlet or shut off the breaker. Use a multimeter and make sure that the connection to door switch assembly are fine, also check the continuity of the door swiches (when closed). If continuity is present you would need to check the connections to the keypad. Try disconnecting the P1 connector(connects keypad to control board) and then reconnecting it, check if the problem is still present. Replace the keypad if the problem still appears. Please check the below pictures, they might help you--

Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

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.

Hi my dishwasher won't turn on because the CLEAN Button is blinking what does this mean?


Maybe it blinks 7 times? Most likely the unit did not see the correct temp of water and thinks the heater is not working. you can usually clear this code with a "button dance". usually the 2 buttons are dealing with heated dry cycles or sanitary cycles. press one then the other repetitively 3 to 5 times, eg.(sani-cycle>heated dry>sani-cycle>heated dry...)

Kenmore Elite: Model 66576962K601.


I had exact same issue. I've called Sears Maintenance. They had to change 2 pieces in UI: Timer KUDS02SRB10 and CONSOLE Assy. Cost 360$ pieces  130$ Job Charge 60$ taxes.
Now It works perfectly, but I bought 1100$ 3 years ago... Really expensive to keep it running.

Dishwasher wont work


Press back and forth between the "sani rinse" button and the "heated dry" button several times. This should put it into a "test mode" where all of the buttons light up and the dishwasher does a self-test. Wait about 5 minutes until you're sure the test is complete, and the dishwasher will operate normally. If those 2 buttons don't work, try going back and forth between the "sani rinse" button and the "hi temp wash" button.

Residue left by Kenmore Elite Ultra Wash dishwasher


Possibly too much detergent - or insufficient water flow from jets.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Flashing clean light and wont start. Is there a sequence of buttons to reset the switchboard?


sani rinse---heated dry---sani rinse---- heated dry.. all the lights on console should light then close the door, let run for 20 -30 secs, and cancel the cycle, if the problem happens again yo need t call a servicer. 1 time maybe a fluke but to happen again indicates a heating, issue somewhere(or a lack of heating)

This worked great - press Sani Dry, then press Heated Dry - then repeat - press Sani Dry, then press Heated Dry. All control lights will light and then press Cancel. The control panel should work normally.
