I have a Kenmore 665.1373 Ultra Wash dishwasher that will not work. In the past few weeks, it stopped mid-cycle, the the clean light began to flash. Sears sent out a technician who told us that the latch was not catching. He adjusted it, did something with a computer and the dishwasher worked for a couple of days. This time, it would not start a cycle, it would only show heated dry if you pushed the smart wash button and nothing if you press start. It looks like some of the lights are continuous

I have a Kenmore dishwasher, model 665.16039. Over the past month (we were on vacation 8 days over Xmas, but I assume it would have happened then, too) it has required rebooting using the Normal Wash - Heated Dry reset about 4-6 times. It would then do a couple loads okay, then need resetting. Now, however, it's refusing to reset to a point at which the Start buton will work. When I reset it, it flashes all the lights (incl. Start), and it fills, sprays, empties, etc. just as though it works

Hello, Our kitchenaid DW has stopped working. Non of the buttons cause a any of the lights to turn on. Of course, it will not start. On its last working cycle, it had a very strange washing cycle. It almost sounds like the water was not splashing around (even though I opened it while it was working and noticed water at the bottom). I checked the circuit breaker, and it is not tripped. For a couple of weeks, the DW had started making a kind of metallic noise while in the washing cycle. Also,

The touchpad buttons no longer work to select a wash cycle. When I push "Start" the light above "Smart Wash" comes on and the dishwasher operates normally, but I cannot select any other cycles and the light only comes on after pressing "Start", not before. Also, the Options buttons seem to work normally but the delay button doesn't scroll through 2-4-6, it only toggles the light on and off above "4". The item is 15 months old. Thank you.

My deceased parents have a GE dishwasher (don't know the model number - can't find it on the machine and can't find the paper work) that stops working shortly you start it and displays a message on the front panel that says "Blocked wash arm - check for wash arm obstruction - restart". We restart it and get the same message shorty thereafter. This happens when the washer is COMPLETELY EMPTY, even when we remove the bottom rack. It first started after several month of inactivity. We'll just t

My Kenmore Dishwasher 665.16359301 quit working. I flipped off the breaker then back on again. The cancel light comes on and it sounds like its going to drain but theres no water in it. After about 20 seconds it stops and the normal wash cycle light starts blinking. Thats it. I did the reset procedure and it started to work then went back to the normal wash light blinking.

ASKO 1885 Built-in Dishwasher: The water sump fills normally, but the wash cycle does not start. Althought the timer seems to work, the wash cycle motor won't start up in any wash or rinse selection. The spray arms do not spin - no water is being pumped. At the end of the wash cycle time, the water will empty out of the sump. Thank you. TB

DU1145XTP The buttons don't all work--for a while the normal wash and heated dry were the only functions that worked--now the start button doesn't work. I took the panel off and clicked the door switch and held it and got all the cycle buttons to light up except rinse only and only heated dry in the cycles would light up. The delay buttons don't work and neither does start. Also the panel seems hot.

Pots/pan light blinks alternately with the normal wash button. Sometimes the cycle will start and then the lights come on. Once they start blinking, the cycle stops and I can't get it to start again. Unplugging it for a few days has worked a few times. But it just keeps getting more frequent. If it does start up, it heats fine and washes perfectly.

The three lights for Pots & Pans, Normal Wash, Econo Wash are all flashing. When I hold the start button down for four seconds, just the Normal light is on. However, once I close the door, all three lights are on again, and the dishwasher does not start. We have tried unpugging it and then plugging it in again. It worked once then went back to all three light flashing. Before this, only the Normal Wash and Econo Wash lights were flashing.

From troubleshooting in manual I'm holding down first two buttons and it's saying "End", but keeps moving back to SOAK function (17 mins) and not doing anything.
