Having problems with your Kenmore 24 in. 16534 Built-in Dishwasher ?

Extended Cycle and No Dry

\015 My dishwasher is about 4 years old and is a replacement of one that blew an element within the first six minths under warranty. What starts as a 78 minute cycle on smart wash lasts upwards of 2 hours while it is heat-pausing. (I keep my water heater turned up quite high -- which offsets any savings I'm getting from this energy-saving dishwasher! )\015\012\015\012As well, the heat dry is ineffective and unless I open the door immediately and allow the dishes to air dry, they are still dripping when the cycle is complete.\015\012\015\012I'm guessing either an element or thermostat. I'm pretty handy - - can I replace either myself and how do I go about finding out which one?\015\012\015\012Has anyone else had problems with this model? My aunt has one and has exactly the same problems.\015

Answers :

Pennys, If your serial number begins with FM27 through FM33, there was a service flash regarding the heating element not heating the water enough. If you can use a meter, you can ohm out the element. It should read between 10 and 35 ohms. The recomended part number for the replacement is 8572861 for plastic tub and 8194200 for stainless. If you remove the bottom toe panel there should be a tech sheet attached. Here you will find the procedure for using the test mode to test other componets of the dishwasher. To answer your last question, there has been many problems with this issue on this dishwasher. Catriver...post back.
I broke down and called in a service tech. Yes, the element was shot but once replaced, the thing works like it was supposed to! Unfortunately the cost makes you appreciate why people are now replacing rather than repairing.

Dishwasher Our dishwasher is not washing the dishes.

I have a Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner III (Model GU1200XTKB0). I have used it previously on "Normal" cycle and I always keep it on Air Dry. Last night I used the "Pots and Pans" cycle and it seemed to work fine. But this morning the Air Dry light is flashing and if I press a cycle key the Rinse Only light starts to flash as well. Nothing works. I have made sure that the console is not locked. Any suggestions? I do not have a Heated Dry button, only Air Dry. Thank you.

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.

Yes I have a whirlpool DU1345XTVB1 dishwasher. Just got in July. After each wash cycle the dishes are not dry. I have been using Finish gelpacs w/jetdry & also have a off brand drying agent in reservior to help dry dishes. The water temperature is set pretty hot & washer is draining good. I have tried checking wash cycle a few minutes into 1st cycle to see if water is in filling & heating. Didn't know if maybe heating element going out or thermostat not working?

We have just purchased and installed our dishwasher. Towards the end of the cycles it has a very high pitch noise when the heated drying cycle. Is this normal, or is there something wrong? It is VERY annoying - it reminds us of a 'ringing in the ears' noise. Also - is there a listing of time for each cycle? It seems that it runs a LONG time in each cycle that I have tried - with or without any specific instruction, i.e. heated dry. Thank you.

My accusense light keeps coming on and blinks continuously. I tried the heat-dry, normal sequence and it would reset to 2 minutes. After the 2 minutes cycle, the accusensor blinking would begin again. Then I tried holding the heat-dry button in for 5-seconds. This looked like it worked so we set a normal cycle without heat-dry. Äll looked good, but a few minutes in, the normal light was off, the accusensor was blinking again and the heated-dry was on again! Is the unit possessed? Other id

Kenmore model 665.16509200 Does not clean very well and now dry cycle not working. Wash cycle takes almost 2 hours, and still dishes had gradoo and white detergent on them, even ones that were clean when they went in. The drying coil had plastic melted on it once before, so that could have caused that malfunction. I am not so concerned about that, it is the dirty dishes after 2 hours that is driving me nuts. The short wash cycle leaves EVERYTHING dirty, so I just quite even trying that.

I have a new Frigidaire FDB1050RE diswasher. I ran it for the first time set on normal wash and pressing both the Hi-temp wash and heat dry button. This cycle is supposed to take a total of 89 minutes to complete including the drying cycle. After 89 minutes it was still in the wash cycle so I cancelled it to preserve sanity. In the instruction manual it states that the water temperature must be above 120°F. Our building's water heating unit is set at 110°F. Why there is a lower temperature
