Having problems with your Kenmore Dishwashers ?

Model 655-17014401 clean light (green) flashes but dishwasher won't start


Answers :

This means you have an open heat circuit. It could be either a bad heating element, a bad hi limit thermostat, or a bad control board. The heater and hi limit therm can be tested for continuity with an ohm meter. Most of these units the heater will come with the control board in a kit. Hope this helps.
