Having problems with your Kenmore 24 in. 15689 Built-in Dishwasher ?

I have a Kenmore 665 ultra wash quiet guard 3. The red light at the start/resume button flahes continuosly. I have unplugged it and tried the four button reset. Neither works. The red light still flashes. Any ideas?


Answers :

The /RESUME light flashing constantly means that there is either have a bad door switch or a touchpad failure.
In some case the problem is a faulty control board.
The control board cannot be returned.
I suggest replacing control pad first, this is a common failure, you can return the pad if that is not the problem. Ask to the part seller for conditions.

Before replacing parts try the following reset sequence (button dance)

press

High Temp , heated Dry

High Temp , heated Dry

High Temp , heated Dry

Do the key combination in rapid sequence. If you succeed, the light will turn off. If there is a fault, the light will come back at next cycle.

There is one year warranty on your dishwasher. Contact Sears to verify warranty status or to order parts.

You can find parts and diagrams on the Sears website listed on link below.

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.
