Kenmore portable dishwasher 665.1784 faulty Electronic Control

\015 We purchased this dishwasher new in Dec. '04. \015\012\015\012It has worked wonderfully up until 2 weeks ago. The dishes were not getting clean and still felt soapy. We cleaned out all the filters, etc. thinking that it was mechanical but the dishes were still not clean and still felt soapy.\015\012 \015\012We started the dishwasher and observed the cycle. Washing went fine but the dishwasher did not call for water for the rinse but continued with the cycle like it had water.\015\012\015\012We also noted that the display will go blank and be unresponsive. If I unplug and plug it in the dishwasher comes back and lights up and will start but then it doesn't do the rinse cycle.\015\012\015\012We are thinking that replacing the electronic control might take care of the problem. Any help would most appreciated!\015

Hi do you get any fault codes?
If your dishwasher runs but doesn’t fill, either something is wrong with its water supply system or it is draining water too soon.
\015\012
\015\0121) First make sure the water is turned on. Check the hot water supply stop valve, normally located under the sink.
\015\0122) Turn off the power to the dishwasher.
\015\0123) When the dishwasher is cool, look for the float inside the dishwasher; this is usually a small plastic dome or cylinder mounted inside at the tub’s base, near the front. When you move most types of floats up and down, you can hear them click because they trip a lever (they are spring-loaded). Lift out the float mechanism, and clean around the float tube. Many floats must be disconnected from below; to do this you’ll have to remove the lower access panel. Rinse off the float, replace it in the tube, and make sure it moves up and down freely.
\015\0124) If you’re experienced with minor repair work, shut off the hot water valve to the appliance. Locate the water intake valve, behind the dishwasher’s bottom front panel. Disassemble the valve to reveal the screen, clean debris from the screen, and reassemble. If the screen doesn’t appear to be blocked, call a repairperson (who will probably need to replace the water intake valve).
\015\0125) If none of this helps, call a repairperson. Any of several parts—including the water inlet valve, pressure switch, and the timer or selector switch—may be faulty.

Hi do you get any fault codes? ... Kenmore Dishwashers

Dishwasher (Whirlpool Model DU930PWQ0) won't pump out. Problem occurred after door was opened during a cycle. Then the pump-out function ceased to work. Washer fills and pumps correctly during the wash cycle. Any suggestions? My guess is that the electronic control may be faulty and it is not opening the solenoid valve for the drain cycle. The other option I have thought of is that the solenoid valve may be faulty and is not responding to the signal from the controller. The dishwasher is n

Hi.If you have tested fuse, overfill, latch, and you have a new electronic control, then it is necessarily a wiring problem. However, since wiring problem causing this after lighting is quite uncommon, I suggest double checking all the re ... Dishwashers

I have a Kenmore Elite dishwasher with electronic controls. When I set the controls press the start pad and close the door it will not start. The light on the start pad just continues to blink. This happened about six months ago and the Sears serviceman pressed two of the control pads simultaneously and this reset the controls. Everything worked after he did this. What are the two control pads that you press to reset the controls?


This is difficult to find out. Try different combinations. Otherwise get the information from the SEARS serviceman. ... Dishwashers

I purchased my Kenmore Elite dishwasher, model # 8542514, in 2003 & replaced the control board in 2006. Recently, I accidently opened the dishwasher during a wash cycle, but it continued working once I closed it. It seemed to work fine for a few more weeks. Now, however, I get nothing--no lights....just doesn't start up. I tried pressing all the code solutions listed on this site, but no luck so far. It seems to me that the control board/panel should last more than 3-4 years.
