Question and Answers

Q:

Dishes on top rack not clean, detergent still in dispensor. 66515952000 Kenmore Elite Dishwasher

Q:

Impeller replacement kit doesn't fit.

A:

I can understand how important it is to have the right information for your dishwasher. There where some changes to the motor shaft of certain models, this one included. The motor shaft was redesigned for better reliability and the old impeller will not fit on the new motor shaft. In order to replace the shaft, you will need to replace the whole motor. This will cost about $124.00 plus tax and shipping. I hope this helps. Please feel free to let me know if you need further assistance. We are always here to help.

Q:

Kenmore Dishwasher 665.15952000 food particles and drainage

A:

Thank you for your question. Some problems seem to multiple and this seems true for your dishwasher. If water is still backing up in the dishwasher, there is a drainage problem. Unplug the dishwasher and check the drain hose to verify it is at the correct height, 20 inches above the sub floor and not clogged. If the disposal or the sink is backing up, clear the drain before any repairs to the dishwasher. The dishwasher also has a check valve that normally keeps water from backing up into the dishwasher.  The check valve may be staying open. Replace the drain hose if needed and the accumulator. You do not want to pay more later for saving a little now. When everything is cleared out and back together, run the dishwasher through a cycle with a cleaner like Affresh or Dishwasher Magic.  A regular cleaning will help prevent those sand like particles accumulating. Vinegar can also be used. If further help is needed,please reply.  Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Sounds good, I took the pump motor apart when I discovered a bushing was missing from the broken chopper. The impeller needs to be replaced as well. I will replace the check valve as well.

Thanks for contacting ManageMyLife.com. I understand your concern with wanting to know when the detergent dispenser opens on the dishwasher. We are here to help. Yadira did a good job providing you with the owners manual on the dishwasher. The detergent dispenser opens in the beginning of the main wash, after the tub refilled with water. You may hear a slight noise when it opens. The image below will show the time lapse from the beginning to the main wash. I hope this helps.

Your symptoms indicate that you may have a problem with a stuck key on that control panel of the dishwasher. That link for a previous answer provides some good troubleshooting for that type of failure. I recommend that you shut off the house circuit breaker for the dishwasher for 5 minutes. That may reset the control board so that the dishwasher will work properly. It has a small chance of working but it is worth a try. If the control behaves in the same manner after resetting the breaker to restore power, then you will probably need to replace that control panel.

If you want to check that key panel before replacing it, then you can use the information shown in the image below. You can use a volt/ohm meter with precision (needle) probes to check the buttons on that key panel (with the house circuit breaker for the dishwasher shut off to disconnect electrical power ). This may help you verify that failure before ordering the part.

You can order parts from this page: Kenmore Elite Dishwasher Model 665.15952000 Parts .

I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .

Thank you for choosing Managemylife.com and allowing us the opportunity to assist you. There is not a reset key sequence for the stuck key fault code that you are seeing but you can try this: Shut off the breaker for the dishwasher for about 5 minutes. This will completely power down the control board inside the dishwasher. When you reset the breaker and the dishwasher powers back up (reboots), it may reset and the control may work normally. This has a slim chance of working but it is worth a try. If the above routine does not work, you will likely need to replace the control console touch pad assembly to fix this problem. In some situations, you may also need to replace the electronic control board. This is a fairly basic repair that you may be able to complete yourself if you are willing to try it. The image below shows the basic procedure for replacing the control board on a typical Kenmore Elite dishwasher like the one that you are describing. The control board may not have to be replaced but the control panel/touchpad for the dishwasher almost certainly will. NOTE: Be sure to shut off the breaker to disconnect electrical power from the dishwasher before accessing internal components as shown below.

Some of these dishwashers get stuck in demo mode and this happens. This usually happens accidentally. What I suggest is pressing these buttons in this sequence to get it out. Try pressing High Temp, Air Dry, Air Dry, High Temp. Let me know if this works.

Thank you for your question.

I can understand the reason for not knowing where the clips go.

I believe the four clips you are referring to are the clips that mount on either side of the adjuster on the top rack.

I will send a couple of pictures that show where they go.

I hope these are the clips you are referring too. If these are not the clips you are referring to please respond with more information.
