May be a wire off motor compacitor. You can't see it from the front. The compacitor is facing the back of the dishwasher. You may have to un-install it to check or use a mirror and flashlight. It's located behind the motor on the left side looking from the front of the machine.

2 brand new Kenmore elite dishwashers - All hookups checked and correct. Start buttons blink - cycles will not start. 1 washer ran for about 10 seconds - then the light started blinking. Troubleshooting in manual says light will blink if the door is not closed. They seem pretty closed. Dishwashers leveled and plumb. Tried it mounted, and unmounted. No Luck. Thanks


These dishwashers have a safety feature. The door has to be closed within 3 seconds of pushing the start button. If the cycle is interrupted at all by opening the door or pushing something while started you will have to push the start button to resum ... Kenmore 24 in. 17482 / 17484 / 17489 Built-in Dishwasher

My Kenmore 16533 dishwasher all of sudden started running really loud on the wash cycle. I stopped the cycle, drained the unit, and looked for something obstructing--found nothing. Started it up, and the problem persists. The dishes do come out clean, however. The dishwasher is 6 yrs old. Is this a problem I could fix, or do I need a repairman? Is it worth the expense of a repairman, or is it time for a new unit?

I just installed a Kenmore Elite Dishwasher. The Dishwasher will not run and is not responding toany commands. I checked the powersource and water supply to the Dishwasher and everything is working fine. We are confused and need some help toget this dishwasher working. It is brand new and just out of the box.


If there is an assembly manual, check it! There are sometimes hold downs and protective strips placed on the machine at the factory to prevent tampering. There is probably one that is stopping the power from reaching the control panel. It may even ... KitchenAid KUDD03STSS Stainless Steel 23 in. Built-in Dishwasher

I have a'05 Kenmore Elite dishwasher. Never had a problem before. The clean button keeps flashing. Thought it was an interrupted cycle so I pressed the "Cancel/Drain" button and the motor ran, no water. Once that was done, I tried to start a new cycle and every time I push start, the green clean light flashes and the "Start" button goes off. Any help. Really don't want a repair guy.

I have a Kenmore Elite 665 Dishwasher. The front control display has been partially working but the dishwasher still worked. Today when we tried to start it it will do nothing & it is getting the correct power. Would this be the control circuit board or something else?

Hi. I have a Danby DDW396W countertop dishwasher brand new yesterday. We unpacked it, installed it onto taps, loaded it with dishes, and turned it on. That's where everything went wrong. When you turn it on, the display shows P2 and when you press the program button to change it, nothing happens. When you push the start button, nothing happens. What am I doing wrong? I know I'm missing something simple, but what? Please help. Katherine

I purchased my Kenmore Elite dishwasher, model # 8542514, in 2003 & replaced the control board in 2006. Recently, I accidently opened the dishwasher during a wash cycle, but it continued working once I closed it. It seemed to work fine for a few more weeks. Now, however, I get nothing--no lights....just doesn't start up. I tried pressing all the code solutions listed on this site, but no luck so far. It seems to me that the control board/panel should last more than 3-4 years.

Kenmore elite dishwasher valve # 8531325 let water run outside the dishwasher. I removed the valve inlet and nothing seems to be wrong with it. When I start a cycle, the water splashes out the valve through the vent holes. Any ideas ?
