Question and Answers


Why won't my Kenmore dishwasher model 587.16242702 start the cycle?


The flashing WASHING light indicates that the control does not detect that the door latch switches are closed properly. Try opening and then firmly closing the door so that the door latch will engage properly. If the flashing WASHING light continues, you will need to check the door latch assembly. The procedure for accessing the door latch assembly is provided in the image below. Be sure that you shut off the breaker to completely disconnect electrical power before accessing this internal component. Look for a loose or broken wiring connection on the door switch assembly. If you find no problem, I recommend replacing the door latch assembly. You can order a new door latch assembly from the Sears PartsDirect website. The part number for the white door latch is 154556701.
