Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

I do not have enough details in order to know what the original problem was. It would be very odd to have the "Clean" light flashing on your specific model because it would normal glow continuously until the door is opened or when Cancel/Drain is pushed.

Generally speaking when the clean light is flashing on other models it indicates a heating fault during the second wash cycle.

I recommend double checking your model number and double checking the part # of the control panel. I also recommend double checking the connections where the control panel flat ribbon harness connects to the control board.

If your model number is 665.16574201 and you used one of the three part numbers of 8530851 (black), 8530852 (white) or 8530853 (bisque) and your original symptom was the flashing "Clean" light then I would have to assume the failure is the electronic control board.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

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 .

Kathy: I see now by your last post that you did not replace the "Control Panel"; you replace the control board. Based on your original symptom; the control board is not likely faulty. I recommend taking the new control board back out and re-install your original control board and see if it will program and start. I'm sure it will. Your dishwasher is likely in thermal hold at the 78 min mark. Your dishwasher estimated time will pause while the dishwasher is in a "Thermal Hold", meaning it will sit there and wash while it takes time to heat the water to 130-145 degrees during the wash and the main wash and it will heat the water to 140 in the final rinse. Once it reaches the target temperature the estimated time will begin to count down again. The next time it reaches the 78 min mark, allow it enough time to heat the water and then open the door to see if the water seems hotter than what entered the dishwasher. If so, the heater is working. There may not be anything wrong with your dishwasher or it may have faulty heater or heater circuit if never advances past the 78 min mark.

I have a kenmore elite dishwasher model 66516574201 and have to replace the element too. I also received the circuit board along with the different shaped element. They came with no instructions. I was looking for instructions to do this and what you have here is exactly what i need. I will attempt the repair and post the results.

Thanks for the instructions. I had figured out how to replace the board using some knives on the tabs. But there is a missing part on the board that Sears sent to me to replace the old board. On the new boards, is it necessary to have the white capacitator with the two male tabs for the two wires that plugged into the white capacitator on the old board?

Understanding a part and a dishwasher can be difficult so I understand your confusion. I researched your question and found a couple people had the same question about their heating element. I have provided you with two links to assist you with this procedure. I attached the links below. I hope this helps! http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/questions/145138-how-do-i-replace-the-heating-element-in-my-dishwasher-1 http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/questions/124700-replace-heating-element-dishwasher

A:

Jacqueline Thanks for the info but it is not quite what i m looking for. I am okay with replacing the element itself. My problem is the circuit board that came with the element. Parts direct told me that the board needed to be installed due to a change in the replacement element. The old board from the original element will not support the replacement element. I can change the element but I don't even know where the board goes. I would assume it goes under the control panel on the top of the dishwasher door. I want to make sure that before i open that panel up it is where the board belongs. Second, i need to know if there is anything else that i need to do to make sure my repair is correct. Has anyone run into this change/upgrade before?

The image below will help with this problem. The key question is do you have a stainless steel tub or a plastic tub.

As you see in the image the kit you got with the element and control is only for the stainless steel tub models.

If you have a stainless steel tub then you have the right kit and you do have to replace both the control and the element. It is a higher wattage for better wash and drying.

If you have a plastic tub then you would just replace the element with the on in the first image.

Please reply with a confirmation of which tub you have.

I can provide information on accessing the control. See the 2nd image for help with this. If you do so please remember to turn the power to the dishwasher off.
