Having problems with your Kenmore 24 in. 17482 / 17484 / 17489 Built-in Dishwasher ?

Lights Don't Come on and Start Cycle

\015 This is a 3 year old machine. \302\240The problem is a consistent one. \302\240The wash selector lights do not come on and therefore, the cycle does not start. \302\240The other lights come on when you press those buttons. \302\240I turned off the electric from the box for 30 minutes and then on with no luck. \302\240I can play with the buttons and after 15 minutes get the dishwasher to work a full cycle (not test cycle). \302\240What are the possible problems and solutions?\015

Answers :

You need to take voltage checks at the control make sure you have voltage coming to it before you replace it. It sounds like you've got plenty of money into it already It might have been cheaper to call someone.
Sounds like you need a control board (timer) or possibly a console/touch panel. One easy way to tell if it's the touch panel - turn lights off in the room and look for a faint glow from any of the indicator lights (when the dishwasher is NOT in use). This is a quick way to tell, but is not ALWAYS the case with a bad console. The 2 wires on the upper right you refered to DO go to a THERMAL fuse that is attached to the grey control board casing. When those fuses blow it does tend to be toward the end of the cycle and will almost always leave water in the bottom. If that fuse is blown the dishwasher will do NOTHING but that doesn't explain your earlier problems. If the fuse is blown you will need to replace it before doing the console check mentioned earlier and make sure you get the fuse KIT that comes with a new harness and not just the fuse itself. And, as always turn the power off before making any repairs and DON'T do anything you are uncomfortable or unfamiliar with.

My Miele G641 displays the Salt PC light even after filling it with salt. I have to cycle the main power switch 3 or 4 times before the Start light will come on. Then when I press the Start button it momentarily pumps out water and then stops. Sometimes the Start light stays on and I can get it to give the pump another brief spurt, but often the Salt/PC light comes on again and the Start light goes out. I then have to re-set the power switch. How do I tell if the logic board is fried?


Hi.This is not a PC, when logic board is fried the machine does not start at all rather than doing weird thing.The logic board is not fried, in the worst case the salt sensor is jammed. Try first pouring a couple of litres of hot wa ... Miele 24 in. Novotronic G641 Plus Built-In Dishwasher

The touchpad buttons no longer work to select a wash cycle. When I push "Start" the light above "Smart Wash" comes on and the dishwasher operates normally, but I cannot select any other cycles and the light only comes on after pressing "Start", not before. Also, the Options buttons seem to work normally but the delay button doesn't scroll through 2-4-6, it only toggles the light on and off above "4". The item is 15 months old. Thank you.

I have a Whirlpool Gu180 ESJQ with a blinking green start light. If I clear this light (hold the start button for 5 second to place it in the end of cycle) then I can get it to start another wash cycle. However, the next wash cycle ends with a blinking start button again and the dishes aren't dry. I had an appliance service man come to check it out and he could not detect any problem! Now I have a leak!

Pots/pan light blinks alternately with the normal wash button. Sometimes the cycle will start and then the lights come on. Once they start blinking, the cycle stops and I can't get it to start again. Unplugging it for a few days has worked a few times. But it just keeps getting more frequent. If it does start up, it heats fine and washes perfectly.

Our AEG Favorit 50620 dishwasher won't start. When I push the power button, the power light comes on, but none of the other lights. Pushing the function buttons has no effect. The door is fully closed, and it was working perfectly before. I have tried turning it off and on, unplugging it etc. Nothing works. Interestingly, if you push more than one function button at the same time, some of the function lights come on, but then when you try to start the cycle it still won't work. Help!

KitchenAid KUDI10FL dishwasher- The door spring system broke and I repaired it, but now all of the sudden the dishwasher will not start. The door may have been dropped a couple of time before the spring system was repaired, but it did not hit the floor, just a hard sudden stop.

Just before the start button stopped working the dishwasher started by itself or started several hours after cycle selection had b

Dishwasher DU1100. Odd behaviour during cycle: "Washing" light goes off and sound of washing stops. "Normal" light starts blinking and "soak and scour" light comes on (it was off before). No sound from washer. This persists for at least 10 hours. After that, the lights go off. Is this normal behaviour? It would appear tha the drying cycle did not go.


No it is not normal. It appears that either the membrane switch pad has failed or the control board has failed. ... Whirlpool Dishwashers

Dishwasher Fault Hi, My dishwasher is a Diplomat ADP8322 (which i think is a rebadged whirlpool unit) & has been playing up recently. When you start a cycle it is fine for a minute or so then it starts beeping, the rinse light comes on & the light next to the start button flashes 11 times, pauses then repeats. I have read online that this flashing relates to what the fault is, but i cannot find out what fault the 11 flashes relate to. The first time this happened i cleaned out all of the filters

My Kenmore Dishwasher 665.16359301 quit working. I flipped off the breaker then back on again. The cancel light comes on and it sounds like its going to drain but theres no water in it. After about 20 seconds it stops and the normal wash cycle light starts blinking. Thats it. I did the reset procedure and it started to work then went back to the normal wash light blinking.
