Having problems with your Kenmore 13723 Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher ?

No lights go on, will not run

\015 Just ran the dishwasher last night, today when I opened water had not completely drained and now it doesn't work at all. Lights on the control panel do not light up at all.\015

Answers :

Float valve is jammed.

Look inside the machine on the floor will\012be a small float valve. Looks like a small upside down cup. Lift it and\012clear anything from underneath.

The valve is a safety feature\012to stop the machine from over filling. If anything gets under the valve\012it will jam open and stop the machine.

Not working?

Check for a clog internal or external.

Scoop\012as much water our as you can. Open the cover on the floor of the\012machine. Usually just turns and lifts out or snaps out some are screwed\012in. Take your time and try not to force anything. Look for a clog\012there.

Check for clog in the drain. The dishwasher will\012connect to the drain under your sink and run either directly to the\012drain or into your disposal unit. Remove open the connections and look\012for a clog. Clear if necessary.

Not the clog?

Water is\012pumped out by the machine via an internal pump located under the base.\012If it fails the water will collect until it trips the float valve.\012First scoop out all the water from the machine and run it again. If\012water comes in and it runs to the point it fills again and trips the\012float then either the pump or timer is faulty.

Pump check.

Remove\012the machine. It will be held in place by screws directly into the\012counter top. You may have to lower it to get it out. The front feet\012turn with a wrench to lower.

Turn off the water supply. Run the unit again until you get to the drain cycle.

Connect\012a test light or voltage tester to the terminals at the pump. Check for\012voltage at the pump. If you have voltage replace the pump. If no\012voltage the timer is faulty.

Timer problem?
Some can be replaced as a unit others are integral to the control panel. Turn style can be replaced. Touch control can not.

Maytag dishwasher mdb7601 will not run- light doesn't come on and nothing happens when you push the buttons. Earlier it would work but if you pushed the light cycle button the longer cycle would light up and it would run. Then the time running light did not light up.

ADB1500AWB WILL NOT TURN ON & RUN. There is power to the dishwasher, but when you push the ON or RUN button on the door it will not run. The push buttons seem to be working, but with a faint light rather than the bright light when it use to run. These lights are only on while I push and hold the on button. Thanks for the help.

Whirlpool model DU960 - from 2001, I think. Stopped running mid-cycle and the cycle lights flash. Won't run. How to fix? If I press 'Cancel/Drain', it flashes that button light. If I press one of the wash cycles again, it turns on the pump for about 1 second, shuts off and the lights flash again. I tried turning off the circuit breaker and turning it back on, but it still won't run. Is this fixable? Do I need to call for service? Or, would I be better off just replacing it?

I have the Whirlpool DU 1100 dishwasher and the clean light kept blinking. I did the heated dry, normal combination and got it to run through the diagnostic check and sure enough it cleared the lights and appeared ready to run. When I would start it up again it would run the water and then get to the soad wash cycle and stop. No more lights it just stopped. I have been through the diagnostic process 3 times and still same problem. HELP

Control panel buttons don't work. Seem to be stuck in the "Lock On" mode. Can't turn off, and dishwasher won't run. When you open the door all lights go off, but as soon as you relatch the door, the "Lock On" light comes on, although sometimes it can be another light. In any case, it won't run.

However there is no water and the heating elemant comes on. The lights on the front; china/crystal, normal wash, clean and heated dry, all come on as if the computer is confused and trying to run them all simultaneously.

Regarding Maytag Dishwasher, model # mdb4651aww3. Most of the lights on the control panel will not light up. You can't change cycles or set the delay timer etc. You can hit the start button and it runs a perfect cycle, and ends up with clean dishes. You just have no idea what cycle it runs.

About 7 or 8 minutes after setting my dishwasher to run a "Normal" cycle, I noticed that it didn't sound right. The Sensing light and the Add a Dish light were both on. I hit cancel and opened the door to find the inside totally dry and just barely warm. It had a slight smell - probably from the motor trying to run unsucessfully. Is there something I can do to remedy this issue without calling a repairman?

My Frigidaire model FDBB2040FC3 "acts" like it starts running when I press start but after just a few moments the Start indicator light goes out and the Hi-Temp Wash and Air Dry lights start flashing... I can hear it "running" or doing something but it clearly isn't actually cleaning anything. I've tried cancelling, letting it reset itself and then restarting... even shut it off from the breaker.

Whirlpool dishwasher model GU2-400-XTB7 Problem started with display cycling through delay times. (1 hr, 2hr, 3 hr and so on.) Was able to cancel that for short periods and then it would repeat the cycle. Was able to run dishwasher by pressing different buttons. Then it would start a cycle but did not run full cycle. Now control panel doesn't work at all. When buttons are pushed, lights do not light up and nothing happens. Is stuck in lock mode.
