Having problems with your Kenmore 16639 Built-in Dishwasher ?

Buttons don't respond

\015 My Kenmore dishwasher (model 15824) was working fine and the decided not to wash the dishes. The Air Dry light is on and as soon as I hit any other button the Quick Rinse light comes on. I guess I'll try the "button dance" but anny other possible suggestions?\015

Answers :

I have same model, same problem. The appliance repair person came today and said it was caused by a bad touch panel, which is one of the most expensive parts on the dishwasher - around $200 (plus the service call and labor = $340) and must be special ordered and will take about 2 weeks. Sorry. He said that this is a frequent problem on Kenmore dishwashers.

I have an older GE dishwasher, model GSD1200T02. I recently put in the wrong soap, so I had to press the clear/reset button. When I did this, the dishwasher ignored me and seemed to continue through the cycles anyway. When it got half way between "drying" and "off", it stopped, and has been that way for several days now. It will not respond to any button pushes at all now. I cannot even reset it because it does not respond at all when I press the clear/reset button. I have had a load of di

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.

Quit working during wash cycle, about 6 liters of water left in bottom, looks like it quit during rinse cycle. There is power to the door switch and door switch works shutting off power when door is opened. However the control panel does not respond to any push button. I have had a problem in the past with moisture from the door vent getting into the control panel area causing the push buttons to become eratic.
