Kenmore Elite Dishwasher Problem

\015 My Kenmore elite diswasher of 5 years seems to be dead. no light, nothing starts. power to unit is good. is there a relay or fuse to check in the door panel\015

Answers :

The dishwasher should have a thermal fuse mounted to the control board behind the operator console4.gif. It is a small silver colored device4.gif\015\012attached to a white plactic bracket. In some model dishwashers the\015\012wrong gage wiring was used causing the wires to heat up and trip the\015\012thermal fuse. There was no apparent risk of fire or anything like that,\015\012but the thermal fuses didn't tolerate the heat differential too well. A\015\012fix for the problem was to purchase a thermal fuse replacement kit\015\012(found at most appliance repair stores) that had thicker wires. The\015\012part number for the thermal fuse kit is 959376 and the price is $16.85. You can find it at\015\012repairclinic.com. Order on line and have the part shipped directly to\015\012you. Now...to access the control board perform the following:
\015\012\011\011\011\015\012\015\012
\015\0121. Turn off the main breaker to the dishwasher. This is important. Even\015\012though the dishwasher is not running, the control board still has live\015\012voltages present.
\015\0122. Open dishwasher door and remove the top screws that hold the console\015\012in place. You shouldn't have to remove the lower screws unless you plan\015\012on removing the entire door panel.
\015\0123. The control panel should pull off from the front enough to where you\015\012can access the control board. There is a thermal fuse mounted on the\015\012board with two wire leads going to it. The fuse is silver in color and\015\012mounted to a plastic bracket which is mounted to the control board.
\015\0124. Cut the wires on the old fuse and splice the new fuse kit to it.\015\012Leave plenty of wire to accommodate. There will be instructions included\015\012with your replacement kit. Ensure you follow the direction thoroughly\015\012and tighten the wire lug screws securely.
\015\012
\015\012NOTE: Do not attempt to reuse the existing wires by simply unplugging\015\012the old fuse and replacing it with the new one (been there). The fuse\015\012will eventually blow again. Follow the instructions provided and you\015\012can't go wrong.
\015\012
\015\012If you have any further quesitons, or if you run into trouble during your repairs, let me know. Good luck to you.
\015\012
\015\012PS If you do not wish to order on line, take the part number I provided you to any major appliance repair shop4.gif and they SHOULD have the part available. This is a known problem and a common fail item.

My Kenmore dishwasher, about 5 years old, is not cleaning well any more. Glasses look cloudy,and I assume the bowls and plates are not clean also, but that's harder to detect unless I hold them up to light. I use a rinse agent. What's the problem? Is it worth having a service person look at it or should I just get a new one? It's a Kenmore Elite ultra wash dishwasher.


Although I used my credit card to pay for the live chat, it bounced me out before the service person could respond. So I tried another service and two people who do home repair told me what the problem was and what it would cost to fix it. Since the ... Kenmore Dishwashers

My Kenmore Elite UtraWash Dishwasher won't drain completely. We have checked the hoses (water supply and drain connected to the disposal) - both are free of obstructions. We have taken the whole thing apart but can't get the plastic cover off to access the motor or "garbage disposal thingy" inside the dishwasher. All of the bolts were taken out, but it was still firmly attached. Didn't want to force it and potentially make the problem worse. Any suggestions before I call Sears Repair people

My dishwasher (Kenmore Elite 665) doesn't use up all the detergent in the detergent cup - it always leaves a little behind at the end of the cycle. the dishes don't get quite as clean any more, either.

I'm guessing that the water pressure may be low, and that it may be due to the same problem. Is there a screen-type filter that filters the incoming water, before it enters th
