Having problems with your Kenmore Dishwashers ?

We have a Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher, several years old. The lock light went on yesterday and we could not put it on wash or anything. We hit cancel, unplugged the machine, left the door open so it would stop the cycle...nothing worked. How do you get the lock off when it goes on like that? I just went into the kitchen, shut the door and the lock was off, strange.


Answers :

There is a key (usually the dry key) that needs to be held for 4 seconds to turn the child lock on or off. If it comes on again try holding this key for 4 seconds.

If it was pressed and held by mistake this could cause the lock to activate. If no one pressed the button and it came on by itself this could be an indication of a touch pad failure in the works. I would need your complete model number to determine what the extent of the repair would be if this touch pad were to fail all the way.

My Frigidaire fghd2433kf1 starting flashing PF occasionally. I would open and close the door and it would go away. It became more frequent until two days ago when the dishwasher stopped mid cycle and flashed PF. When I opened and closed the door, everything went dead and the dishwasher no longer works. It acts like it has no power coming into it. I checked the breakers and the wires connecting the power into the dishwasher. No luck. I replaced the control panel, but not the control board. It did

Hi, I'm working on a KUDI02FRSS0 for my neighbor. She complained the door flew open one day during a wash and the door had been very heavy since. A quick check on the internet, and I thought it would be simple... I installed an 8194001 balance kit. Both cords had broken. However, the door was very hard to close, and once you did close it, it would tend to pop open by itself shortly thereafter. When the door popped open, thanks to the new balance kit, it would not fly open as it had p

I've had an LG LDF6810ST dishwasher for about three years with no problems. All of a sudden it won't close. It finished the wash, I emptied it, and when I went to close the door it wouldn't close all the way. It was as if something was getting caught not allowing the door to close completely. I searched and found nothing blocking, then I looked at the door latch and it looks as if the child lock feature is engaged. So the door is locked while open. I turned the child lock on and off through the

Kenmore Elite Stainless Steel 24 inch tall Model 66577963K701. The heating element works for "heated dry" but not for "Hi Temperature" wash. It used to do so and when I opened the door a nice blast of steam would come out. My hot water tank is a great distance from the washer so we usually run the hot water tap in the sink for a bit until hot water comes... but the heating coil no longer kicks in on any of the cycles (Smart Wash / Normal Wash ).

I have the Siemens SL84A305UC Dishwasher. All of a sudden it stopped cleaning dishes, but everything sounds normal and it fills and drains water, and sounds like it is completing the cycle. In the past when I opened the door while it was actively washing the water would spray out aggressively. Now, when I opened it while it was supposed to be washing I see just a small amount of water coming from the bottom wash blade, and not even enough to turn the blade very far. I thought it was just a c

I opened the door before the drying cycle finished. I pressed the cancel button, then I pressed "normal wash" and the "start" button and it didn;t start. Then did "cancel" again . I pressed the "heat" button for five seconds to lock the door so I wouldn;t make the same mistake again. It still won't start. Now the "cancel" button won't work and the start button flashes. What do I do now?

I have a Kenmore Ultra Wash built-in Diswasher. The flap on the detergent door does not open as it should during wash cycle. Also, I thought the rinse aid was empty so I went to fill it and its obvious that it has not been dispensing either.

Water won't stop filling, even when the door is opened. I cleaned the float valve at the front , that worked for a few washings. Or it may be a random occurrence. This dishwasher was purchased in 1993 in Canada, and has always worked well. We do have well water, but it isn't real hard, I put vinegar in about nearly every rinse cycle.

Hello, my Hoover D7610 dishwasher has developed a problem, I would appreciate your advice.On starting a wash it appears to be working OK through what I believe to be a rinse cycle but then after about 20 minutes water pours out from the bottom of the door. Manually clicking the timer-programer forward stops the leaking but the machine needs manual advancement except for the last 2 cycles when the timer seems to work OK. After the 1st cycle there is no more water leaking from the machine but all
