Question and Answers

Q:

need a screw for dishwasher that is no longer available 66516599201

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

Unfortunately, there has been no substitution for the original screw, so we do not have one to recommend in its stead. 

We would recommend running an online search for part number 3400069 to see if there are any still in circulation, or you could try to match it up at a hardware store. Our system doesn't give the thread, but it shows as a 1" screw. 

We apologize for the inconvenience and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

I see from a previous expert post that you have replaced the dishwasher heater. I understand that this would raise additional questions. The general answer to your questions is yes. The heater is critical to the proper water temperature during these cycles. As to the water level, the maximum water level in most Kenmore dishwashers is just touching the bottom of the heating element. Since you are comfortable doing your own repair, I am attaching and e-mailing images that will outline the temperature readings for each cycle. If there is any further assistance needed, please reply. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

A:

When you tighten the nuts on that heating element, you can snug them down firmly using normal force. Do not torque them using extreme force or you could damage the tub or the gaskets. You can check the bottom of the tub for leaks after installing the element. Shut off the house circuit breaker to disconnect electrical power and tighten the nuts down further if you see any leaks or drips from the bottom of the tub in that area after the installation is complete.

I posted a basic procedure for accessing and replacing the electronic control board in that type of dishwasher. Your dishwasher will be slightly different than the one shown below but the basic repair procedure is the same. Be sure that you shut off the house circuit breaker for the dishwasher to completely disconnect electrical power before opening that console and replacing the control board.

I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, let us know.
