Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Without knowing the model number of your dishwasher I can only provide general information. If your model has mechanical timer, it could be stalling due to a friction issue between the timer came and the dispenser actuator. If the unit has an electronic control board and it appears the cycle is stuck, it may waiting for the water to heat up before it will continue through the cycle.

So that's what I can tell you at this point. I can give you more detailed help if you could provide me with the complete model number. If you could supply me with that information and any other details I will be happy to assist you further.

A:

Marc: Thank you for the model number. You model has an electronic control board. If the dishwasher will fill, wash, drain and then repeat for the next wash cycle but not advance to the dry cycle, it could have a faulty control board but not likely. Make sure the dishwasher heating elment is working and the dishwasher is filling with water. There will be several thermal holds which causes the cycle to stall while it heats the water up to certain target temperature before it will advance the next cycle or into dry. I would let the dishwasher run until it advances into the drain cycle. There is not likely anything wrong with the dishwasher other than it's having to heat the water up because it could be too cold at times. The hot water in the pipes will cool down rapidly between fill cycles.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Without having the model number of your Kenmore dishwasher I can't be certain if has thermal fuse/thermal cut off or not. If has an electronic control board, then it most likely has thermal fuse connected in series with the line one (L1) voltage supply line between the door switch and control board. If it has a mechanical timer, then it would not have a thermal fuse.

Also, inside the electrical junction box where the power supply is connected to the dishwasher, it could just have burnt or loose wire connection on the black or white wires. The black and white wires are generally twisted together to the black and white incoming power supply with a plastic wire nut. It's is not uncommon for the wire connection to become loose.  I would check the connections at the electrical junction box first and I would also measure and confirm the voltage supply too.  NOTE: Disconnect the power supply from the dishwasher before removing the lower toe plate and lower panel. 

 The electrical junction box cover will generally have one screw to remove.  I do not recommend measuring the voltage supply unless you have experience and feel safe and confident in doing so; otherwise I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dishwasher.

If the voltage supply is correct, then I would remove the screws from behind the control panel and tilt the control panel forwards and locate the thermal fuse. It is normally found on the side of the control board. The thermal fuse can be disconnected and tested for continuity with an Ohm meter.

 So that’s what I can tell you at this point. I can give you more detailed help if you could provide me with the complete model number. The model numbers are typically located on the perimeter of the tub after opening the door. If you could supply me with that information I will be happy to assist you further.

Jonathan: Thank you for adding the model number. Yes, your model has a thermal fuse inside the control panel. The thermal fuse is connected in series with the black wire with the white stripe between the door switch and the control board. It will be fastened on the edge of the control board and it will have a solid black wire and black wire with a white stripe connected to it. It can be disconnected and tested for continuity with an Ohm meter. Be sure to disconnect the power source from the dishwasher before removing the control panel.

I have that very same symptom - i.e. no lights will come on and nothing works all of a sudden. However, I studied all the parts diagrams and I cannot find any sketch of the electrical junction box! And the power supply that Joey mentions. Is this at the back? I ask so I know if I have to pull out the unit. Thanks. Frank

A:

Frank: The electrical junction box is located under the front corner of the dishwasher. You do not need to pull the unit out. Remove the lower toe panel and access panel by removing the 4 screws. There will be one screw in each corner. Once the lower toe panel and access panel has been taken off, you will see the electrical junction box cover on the lower right side with one screw securing the cover. Before disconnecting the black and white wires, flip the house circuit breaker off dedicated for the dishwasher circuit.

Same dishwasher, clean light flashing 7 times then pause. Will not run. It will drain when I touch cancel/drain. But will not start Marty

A:

Marty: The clean light flashing 7 times is an indication the control did not detect a temperature rise in the main wash cycle. To clear the flashing "Clean" light, press the following button sequence: Heated Dry---- Normal----Heated Dry----Normal and then let the unit run for a few minutes and then press cancel and let it time out. You can check the heater during the dry cycle for heat.
