Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

My Kenmore dishwasher model #66515639000 quit working. It was washing dishes just fine one day and then the next the buttons weren't working properly. The pots & pans button was flashing with the cancel button. After searching on your site, I tried to resent the control panel by pressing the normal wash button and the air dry button 3 times then opening and closing the dishwasher. Now the quick rinse button is flashing. Any ideas of what to do now?

When trying to start the dishwasher, pressing the Normal wash button, the dishwasher gives a huge clunk and then it trips the circuit breaker. Upon resetting the breaker, I tried the next button over, which is Soak and Wash, and it seems to go thru the cycle fine. Another time I tried the Normal button, but put the left dial on Rinse and it started up, but it would clunk periodically and it seemed to have a 'hot' smell. I'm worried to use it - what could this be? Is there anything else I can try

I pressed the POWER button to turn on the dishwasher. I pressed the SELECT button, hit HEATED DRY button and the LIGHT WASH buttons. I then hit the START/PAUSE button to start the cycle. All lights came on as normal & I heard the machine trying to **** up water like it normally does. Within 5 minutes or so, the machine started to BEEP & BEEP every minute. When I came to the check why the beeping noise was on, I saw that all the WASH PROGRAM lights were all blinking. I hit the START/PAUSE

Kenwood Elite Dishwasher Mod#665.13779 K600 "Normal Wash " light blinks continuously with NO washer action. No other wash modes light up when pressed. Washer does not do anything. However, a couple of times I got it to make a noise as if it was draining, but then nothing happens. Push "Cancel" and it blinks in unison with Normal Wash light. Open door and close it, "Cancel" light goes out and Normal Wash light continues to blink. Have tried various combination of buttons to try to "Reset"

I used the "rinse only" cycle on the dishwasher a little while ago. I've never used this cycle before. After dinner I tried to start the dishwasher, but no other buttons on the panel respond except the last one I used, which is the rinse only cycle. I push and push, I tried pushing and holding, nothing works, I get no lights no anything. I've been using the "light wash" cycle for a long time and I normally just push the start button and the last cycle used starts automatically, so I wasn't a

I have a Rebadged Siemens dishwasher model no. SE6TIE1GB / 13 TKD 795 / 2. When turning on, the dishwasher makes the "normal" noise of washing but after less than a minute it stops and refuses to wash anything. Ive tried pressing the reset button but no help. Worth mentioning, the night prior to that, I switched on the dishwasher before sleeping and when waking up at 5am, it was still washing so I manually turned it off and opened the door to find some water at the bottom of the tray.

A few days ago the dish washer was running fine, maybe a single wash every day. Then, out of no were the logic seems to have left the machine. If you pressed the "normal cycle" button it would blink for about 30 to 45 seconds then the front panel would go blank. All LED lights would turn off, like it finished doing the diskes, never running a single cycle. I unplugged the machine to let all circuits reset, that worked for two days, two washes in that time. Today I'm back to a machine that will n

Kenmore Ultra Wash Model 665 - 158* Front panel not working properly. Pressing Normal does not light that option. The only option that lights is "Quick Rinse", pressing this lights that option and also the "No Heat Dry" light. After a few seconds the lock light comes on. Looks to me that the "No Dry Heat" button is stuck on, which causes all the other things to happen Is there a way to fix this?
