Having problems with your Kenmore Dishwashers ?

My kenmore elite 665.1629 d/w worked fine for 4.5 years, but today the inside electronic panel had a fire and all the wires burned out. Has this happened before? Is it covered by warranty? Do I simply need a new D/W


Answers :

HI.This is a very serious issue here. Any type of electrical fire of this nature will signal that the internal harness is faulty. This harness failure could be the result of a over current condition produced by a surge, or harness failure. As for any reports on this particular issue, there are none. this is the first I have encountered, at this time. No recall information referring to a faulty control board, as well. I suspect this is an isolated issue that only concerns your unit. The necessary repairs are to replace the affected PCB, and harness, as well. This will not be covered by your manufacture warranty. The store warranty on this particular unit is only 1 year. If you did not extend your store warranty, chances are it has been canceled. The wiring harness will cost $77.55, and the control board will cost $99.26. Total parts cost will be $176.81.

Due to the electrical nature of this issue, I would advise to call for service, in this case. Total repair coast, including labor and the parts shouldn't exceed $300.00.

Dishwasher FDB4315LFC0 Error code ER uo Second time it has happened. First time, a repairman came and said I needed a new "vent assembly", but I asked if he could "un stick it," so he took it apart and fiddled with it, and it worked for about a month. Now the error code is back, and he warned that if it came back, I should have it replaced. I've only had this NEW machine 10 months -- this shouldn't happen, right? Any suggestions? Thanks.

IDL750 - Fuse trips when turned on. HELP! We had some electricians here to install a new electrical socket for a new fridge. They put the new socket in the same wiring as for my existing dishwasher!! The first time I tried to start the dishwasher cycle with the new fridge plugged in, the circuit box fuse tripped. Now, even with the fridge turned off, the dishwasher makes the fuse trip when turned on. Is there a fuse inside the dishwasher that has blown and needs to be replaced? or a ground brea

My power button cover broke on the dishwasher and I figured out the part number I needed, but when I put it back together I got the wires crossed on the board and door switch. Now the control lights up , but the dishwasher will not run a cycle. THe question is does the plug on the door switch have to be a certain way, because there are three wires and you can connect the plug both ways. I did turn the plug, but it still does not run. Did I break the switch? Bosch SHU9956uc/14


The wires do have to be a certain way on the door. Otherwise a door open can tell the board that's it shut and vice versa. The easiest way to do it, is test the switch with an ohmmeter, place the meter on the switch, push button in and see if the rea ... Bosch SHU9956 Built-in Dishwasher
