Having problems with your Kenmore 17259 Free-standing Dishwasher ?

I set rotary dial for Normal Wash which it does but does not turn off, rotary dial keeps turning automatically thru t Water Miser, Rinse Hold, Drying, Plate Warmer until reaches Off. Dishwasher operates normally otherwise. Have cleaned the pump and spray arm.

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

I will start by saying your post indicates it is a Kenmore portable dishwasher, however based on the info you posted and my experience, I don't think there really is a problem...if I understand your post.


Just to clarify, "rotary dial keeps turning automatically thru t Water Miser, Rinse Hold, Drying, Plate Warmer until reaches Off " unless what you are saying is the unit doesn't turn off even when reaching "off'.

Let me know if that is indeed the case, otherwise it is working as it should. Whether you select Pots & Pans, Heavy Wash, or Normal Wash or even Water Miser it should run until it reaches "off" on your model of dishwasher.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Removed rear toe-plate to detect leak. Leak caused by broken drain hose. Hose replaced. To do this the unit was tipped forward onto its front door to allow access to the base area. Water allowed to drain out the front base area. Unit re-assembled but now does not switch on. Water connected. Base-plate dry. No water was detected at upper-front control panel. Power is connected and reaching unit ( multi-meter test ). Tipping the unit forward seems to be the cause. Is there any fuse,


The micro switches are frequently replaced on the door handle and they don't need to ever get wet. A lot of amp draw burns those switches up while they are dry. If they were wet and power was applied then they got fried my friend. The good news is th ... Dishwashers

Hotpoint Model HDA 3500N 10 BB Unit is only about a year old. The dial does not move. I noticed it when the washer was on for more than 3 hours and saw that the dial was still in the middle of the wash cycle. I then turned it to the rince cycle which operated there (not moving) until I manually moved it to dry. Did not move from there either. Thank you for any help you can give me.

Our GE Triton Dishwasher, mod# GSD5620D01BB is 10 years old. A problem started two days ago where; when it runs through a normal washing cycle; it contuously beeps about every 1 second when it reaches the Drying Cycle and the LED Green light flashes next to the Drying . I reset the breaker and tried again; same thing happened as it went through the normal cycle and when it reached the Drying part; same thing happened. The dishwasher is cleaning and everything else seems to be working fine.

Our Miele Incognito dishwasher was installed in our new home in August, 2005. The wash/dry cycle has always taken a very long time - 5-6 hours is now the standard. So we have gotten accustomed to only running the dishwasher at over night. However, for the last few months, we've noticed the dishwasher is no longer drying well - we also need to finish drying the plates, glasses and silverware. Do you recommend we have a service call?


Yes, absolutely. The timer motor is not functioning right for it to stay on like that. Could be other control issues too. ... Miele 24 in. Incognito G843SCVi Built-In Dishwasher

I have a hiDefinition, Top button(Hidden when you close the door) with a stainless steel front cover. Drain pump continuously runs and won't shut off. This will not allow the washer to go into the next cycle or into the dry cycle. This I guess would be the shut down mode allowing the built up heat to dry off the plates and glasses.
