Having problems with your Kenmore Dishwashers ?

No power when I turn it on - Kenmore Dishwashers


Answers :

Used an ohmeter to check start button, thermal fuse, timer, thermostats; other cause, that you have a stuck button code on your\015\012dishwasher. A stuck button is a common problem with this type of touch\015\012pad. One way to try to fix this without replacing the overlay is to\015\012clean the connections. To clean the connections you will need to open\015\012the door and remove the screws around the perimeter of the door liner.
Number\015\012two in the diagram below is the part I am referring to. Your touch pad\015\012connects to the control board with a ribbon cable. It is a wide and\015\012flat cable. Remove the cable from the control board and use a pencil\015\012eraser to clean the ends of the cable.

After you clean the end of\015\012the cable, reassemble the dishwasher then turn the power back on the\015\012unit. Now try to start a cycle. If this problem was due to a connection\015\012issue you will be good to go. If this doesn't fix your problem, you\015\012have stuck button. You will need to replace the touch pad.

Good luck.
If u have no indicator lights of any kind then the CCU (central control unit) board is defective, this assumes u know the washer is plugged into a live plug, to replace the CCU electronic control board you must remove all the screws that hold the 2 halves of the dishwasher door together, then carefully unplug the old and plug in the new, the part on average runs $170.00

The dishwasher pump sounds like it is trying to drain, even when the stop button is pressed and the door is opened. The only thing that stops it is turning the power off at the power point. However, when the power is turned on the pump continues. The wash cycle icon flashes, but the usual cycle indicator is not lit at all. The dishwasher will not commence a new cycle.

Have a Westinghouse 905 dishwasher (guessing approx 5-10yrs old). When I turn it on it's starts is cycle as expected then stops after about 10mins and loses all power (can't turn it on or get any lights to light up for sometime almost like it needs to cool down) at this point the dishwasher is full of water. It is not the pump however as as soon as you can get power to it (sometimes some hours later) and turn it on the first thing it does is pump out the water. Any ideas??

My Maytag dishwasher goes for long stretches when it won't turn on even though I push the proper buttons. The buttons won't light either. It turns on by itself after a couple of weeks of sitting idle. Some of the lights may blink on the start panel while the dishwasher doesn't work, but only on occasion will it fully operate. I have turned off the power and turned it back on, hoping to reset the computer part of the dishwasher. It didn't work.

Hi - my Viking dishwasher has developed a problem where the pump runs continuously, whether the power switch is ON or OFF. After the power is turned ON, the troubleshooting guide indicates that there is too much water in the dishwasher. (One of the pot symbols on the display flashes continuously to show this indication.) I am unable to switch between programs, e.g., from quick rinse to pots & pans. I cleaned all the filters to no avail. I had to secure the circuit breaker in order to turn t
