Question and Answers

Q:

Dishwasher dead, control lights out, no response. 66516294400 Kenmore Elite Dishwasher

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I will be more than happy to help with your dishwasher. Upon researching model 66516294400; it sounds like you may need to replace the electronic control board. The control board governs the functions of the dishwasher including when the dishwasher turns on and off so when it fails it can cause the controls to be unresponsive and powerless. I have posted a link of the control board to view the link click here.

I trust this information will help you, we appreciate your business thank for choosing Sears.

Q:

Dishwasher Kenmore Elite start button does not work 665.16294400

A:

Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com and being a valued member. It is unfortunate to hear that you are having issues with your dishwasher and I do understand your frustration. Glad to help out. I'm looking at your model number 66516294400 and since the machine was working properly I recommend first checking all the connections near and around the area the repair was done. Is the start light the only light that doesn't work? A problem with the start light can indicate a problem with the door switches. Here is a link that will help test the switches. If the switches test they are still good then you may have a defective kepypad or controller. I recommend having a service technician properly diagnose the problem. Just click the blue link above to be taken to the page. I trust this information will help you.

 

Thank you for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

It is an easy fix and I believe you can do without any problems. There is a repair kit that will be needed.

The link kit #8194001 for Kenmore model 665.16294400 can be ordered from Sears Parts Direct.

To have a technician come out will cost approximately $75.00 plus the labor fee. The technician would provide the labor charge.

I added a YouTube video showing how access and install the repair kit .

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

A:

Thanks so much for your help. We are going to try and fix the door ourselves. I can't believe such a heavy door is held by such a flimsy rope. This is the second time the rope has broken. This is very poor engineering. I have never had a dishwasher do this in all my years of owning dishwashers.

A:

Ingrid: Be sure to install all the components that come with the kit. Also; do not apply any lubricants to the rope or associated plastic parts. The rope must remain dry free of any dust, dirt and lubricants or it can cause it to make noise when opening or closing the door.
