Having problems with your Kenmore Dishwashers ?

The lock on light wont go off. We can not start the dishwasher. We have tried holding the noheat option for several seconds and have turned off the circuit box for several minutes and neither one made the lock on light stay off.


Answers :

That is the correct button to push to turn the control lock off. You can try to reset the control by removing power for two minutes. If the dishwasher is doing the same thing, most likely the touch pad has a shorted button or a bad connection on the unit control board. To check touch pad connection you will have to open the console. You will want to turn the power off to the dishwasher first.

\015\012Open the console.Once the console is open, remove and install the ribbon cable a few times. Now put the door back together and restore the power. If the dishwasher works, it was just a bad connection on the ribbon cable. If the console is doing the same thing, it could be a console or a unit control faulty. I recommend the console first.

The controls on my GE GLD4600N10WW have on occasion locked up. In the past, I have resolved this by turning the breaker off and back on. It has now locked up, but won't reset. When the breaker is turned back on, the dishwasher control panel lights indicate "Normal Wash" and "Heated Dry" but the controls do not respond. After several minutes the lights simply go dark. It does not respond to any button pushing.

I have a Kitchenaid Dishwasher Model KUDC25CHSS1. (Manual says KUDC25CH). The Delay Hours button is stuck on 2 hours. The manual says to cancel it, press it until no lights are on, but when we press it, the Child Lock light comes on. I tried pressing Energy Saver Dry to cancel the Child Lock, but that didn't cancel it. I tried turning off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes, but the same light(s) come back on when I re-set it.

I have a model FDB2310LCC2 dishwasher and it won't turn on. The column cycle lights washing cleaning drying and sanitizing are all blinking simultaneously along with the "high temp wash" light. I de-energized the circuit breaker for approx. 1 minute then re-energized and no difference is noted. Any ideas?

Anyone have experience with a Fisher Paykel double draw dishwasher (model DD24) getting stuck in wash mode? Once it hits exactly 48 minutes it stays there. Only several hours later it cycles through OR you have to turn it off put it in rinse mode to complete. Already tried all the basics (unplugging, no fault codes, cycled through the diagnostics everything good and working). Did the quick diagnostic cycle of 14 minutes and everything cycled through fine. Next step will be to put the bottom cont

Sometimes they stay on and the timer in the display window counts down the minutes, but in either case no sounds come from the dishwasher nor does any water enter the unit. The water is turned on and there are no kinks in the supply line. I removed the water valve and could not blow through it. Upon applying current to the valve I could blow through it but it still seemed restricted. Should I be able to blow thr

Hi, we have a Hoover HEDS668-80 dishwasher at work. The first problem we had was none of the programs would run this turned out to be a broken door lock. After replacement we managed to get one pre wash and one wash program to run, now when we try it, it starts but after 2 minutes the pre-wash and wash lights flash and the machine beeps 8 times. Can anyone help?

Just had a Bosch dishwasher installed in my new kitchen. The plumber who installed it ran it and it worked. Now we cannot get it to run. We have tried everything. Restarted several times, turned the circuit breaker off and on, changed the cycle and nothing works. The light comes on but it does not get water or run. What are we doing wrong. The dishwasher is brand new out of box but we bought it 4 years ago and remodeling was delayed. Model #SHU5314UC/U06 FD#8001


Test the door switch. It can be faulty or misaligned. You can also check the back of the unit and/or remove the rear panel and take a look at the thermal fuse. It may be bad not allowing enough current flow to operate the machine. ... Bosch SHU5316UC Dishwasher

Start button flashes 2hr, but will not start the dishwasher, when touched. Also, lights on top of the door are not always functioning. I phoned Maytag and customer service had me turn off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. This did not change the dishwasher. I think that the door latch is not snapping into position, when I open the door.
