Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

We have a Kenmore Ultra wash dishwasher Model # 665.13733K601 and serial # FW18136133. came home from work yesterday and the pots and pan button and the normal wash buttons were flashing alternately. When I pushed the cancel button it started to flash, then I pressed the smart wash button and now its flashing. I turned of the breaker for awhile and then back on and the lights weren't on right away but later started flashing again, and I can't get the dishwasher to do anything. Any help on my pro

Looks like your problem has not been answered for a while.
\015\012
\015\012On the face of it I would say either the keypad panel or the cable connecting panel and control module has developed a fault.
\015\012
\015\012First try if the reset function works. The most likely code for your model would be to press the following 2 keys in quick sequence with 7-8 secs as follows
\015\012High Temp/ Dry/ High Temp/ Dry/ High Temp/ Dry/ High Temp / Dry
\015\012
\015\012If the dishwasher is still responsive then all lights should light up. Press cancel and open door.
\015\012
\015\012Observe if there is any change.
\015\012
\015\012If nothing happens the panel and controller need to be looked at.
\015\012The panel and control module connection are visible on this diagram. Check items 1 and 11 and wiring between the two. You can order the parts and fix.

The three lights for Pots & Pans, Normal Wash, Econo Wash are all flashing. When I hold the start button down for four seconds, just the Normal light is on. However, once I close the door, all three lights are on again, and the dishwasher does not start. We have tried unpugging it and then plugging it in again. It worked once then went back to all three light flashing. Before this, only the Normal Wash and Econo Wash lights were flashing.

On my whirlpool ADP962 dishwasher the start light is flashing but nothing is working. I can change the programme type (ie rinse, wash etc) but the programme will not start. I can't select either half load or a time delay. By holding the start button it will start the pump but when this stops it goes back to a flashing start light. The programme progress lights are not lit. What is this telling me and how can I reset it?

My kenmore dishwasher, model 665.16473300 has stopped working. Now the lights just flash at the Smart Wash, Normal Wash, and Cancel. I've reset the power and it just comes back. I've taken the drain area apart and made sure there are no obstructions. The buttons seem to respond, as after I reset the unit (breaker), only the Smartwash button is flashing. I push cancel and then it starts flashing. So I think the buttons work, but it's locked up.

Maytag MDB 8600 AWB dishwasher Wouldn''t start... just a Heated Dry light. Replaced (already broken) door handle with complete latch assembly. Still, Heated Dry flashes. Tried various suggested combos of 5 or 6 quick button pushes followed by Start. Only get a 50-=countdown that repeats endlessly. Sometimes alternates with the letter L. Once by luck I guess it went into Heavy Wash mode, or at least the diagnostic for it. Completed this fine, then back to the stubborn Heated Dry light.

Tecnik DW2677 Hi, my dishwasher regularly starts to bleep after starting a wash program. When the door is opened it stops bleeping and the right hand light flashes 7 times repeatedly in sequence. By holding down the start and program change buttons together for a few seconds, it will reset. If you then close the door all is well for a few seconds the pump sound like it expells some water and then it starts to bleep again. The above process can happen several times before it decides to do what it

I have a Kenmore 665.1373 Ultra Wash dishwasher that will not work. In the past few weeks, it stopped mid-cycle, the the clean light began to flash. Sears sent out a technician who told us that the latch was not catching. He adjusted it, did something with a computer and the dishwasher worked for a couple of days. This time, it would not start a cycle, it would only show heated dry if you pushed the smart wash button and nothing if you press start. It looks like some of the lights are continuous
