Having problems with your Kenmore 16912 Built-in Dishwasher ?

I have an 8 year-old Kenmore 665.16912 dishwasher. Worked fine until two days ago. Then it stopped working altogether: nothing lights up on the front panel. I have checked the 120 in the electrical box, the door switch is working, the thermal fuse is working and there is 120 volts at the white and black connections to the timer control board. I bought a new timer control board for $120 and that did not fix the problem. What else could be causing the unit to completely stop working?

It doesn't work at all no lights anywhere. I ordered and replaced new switches, and replaced the control board. The circuit breaker is on, and if I put one of the little meters that just tells if you have either 120 or 220 volts accross the two white wired connections on the board, 110 lights up. The float seeks to move freely.


If you have no lights at all and you have power to the circuit double check that the circuit board is connected properly first since you replaced that. On some models there is a safety circuit installed that disconnects power in the event it detects ... Kenmore 24 in. 15932 Built-in Dishwasher

Water fill solenoid receives only 10 volts on normal cycle-not enough juice to open solenoid. Dishwasher does not fill. Dishwasher works fine on short cycle because on that setting the control panel sends 120V to the fill solenoid. Is there a ciricuit board or fuse I can replace?

I have a Kenmore undercounter dishwasher..model 665.16022400. The "normal wash" light keeps blinking..nothing will work on it..I tried reseting didn't work, killed the breaker for a while, didn't work. I tool the panel off and reseated the ribbon connection to the electronic board..didn't work. I'm not sure if I should be replacing the electronic board, or the control panel that contains the buttons. None of the buttons appear to be stuck. thanks - Andrew


Hi,This is a common problem. As i cannot diagnose the machine myself, it would be tough to exactly comment on the fault. However, more often it is an issue with control panel keypad assembly.You need to replace that.Let me kno ... Kenmore 16024 Built-in Dishwasher

Hello, I've been working on a Bosch Dishwasher. It has no display of any kind, and there's a strange grunting sound coming from the wash motor when power is applied (like if you had just plugged it in), as if it's trying to start. The junction box is getting 120V, all connections to the junction box are fine, and the display board and the main control board are all getting the proper voltage. Now, we've already replaced the main control board and the problem persists. The tech line suggested

I have a Whirlpool DU1055XTSS dishwasher that completely stopped working. I took it apart, found the thermal fuse to be bad, ordered a new, then replaced it and it worked for 2 loads. Now the thermal is open again. What could be "taking it out"? Is the thermal fuse strictly a thermal or does it repsond to current? It's 2 years old, i have already replaced the heating element, the main control board, and now the thermal....twice.

Frigidaire dishwasher Rylee, the circuit breaker is fine. There is no fuse on the dishwasher according to the owners manual, the parts manual and the wiring diagram.

I have a MDB6759AWS3 that is one year and two months old. This morning I went to the control panel to press the buttons and some would light up and others would not. I disassembled the inner panel and looked at the "computer like" flat ribbon that connects the control panel to the main circuit board and noticed that some of the wires in the flat ribbon had deteriorated. I put it back together and pressed the buttons and they flash very dimly for a few seconds and got the dishwasher working bu

It became more frequent until two days ago when the dishwasher stopped mid cycle and flashed PF. When I opened and closed the door, everything went dead and the dishwasher no longer works. It acts like it has no power coming into it. I checked the breakers and the wires connecting the power into the dishwasher. No luck. I replaced the control panel, but not the control board. It did

I re-soldered the relay so it now has a good connection, however the drain pump still just pulses. How do I verify if the drain pump is bad or if the relay failed, or yet another problem?
