Kenmore Dishwasher #587.... doing nothing but heat dry

\015 Filled dishwasher, sounded like it ran through a cycle but noticed that 3 hours later it was still on Heat dry.... when I opened it some of the plastic had melted and nothing was clean. Tested again and there is no water running through the DW but the heat works.... believe me!\015

Answers :

The problem appears to stem from the float and float switch. The float is a mushroom shaped plastic part that resides on the bottom left, just inside the door. It appears that the float does not release the float switch, causing the dishwasher to think it is full of water, and won't allow the dishwasher to fill. It's a relatively straight forward repair, but even with a new part, the same scenario is likely to repeat itself until the float or float switch is modified by Kenmore.

Dishwasher: Kenmore ultra wash sensor quiet guard plus. I'm in a rental so I don't have the manual or model number. A few days ago it just wouldn't start the wash cycle. When you press normal wash then start the no heat dry and lock lights flash every other second or so but nothing happens. I can hit the cancel button and it will make sounds like its trying to drain, and after about 5 minutes stops. I've done the heated wash/ no heat dry sequence to try to reset but no luck.

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
