One is a cycling thermostat and one a high limit. I assume it would be the high limit one that is not functioning correctly?

I found this: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/questions/229703-kenmore-dishwasher-gets-stuck-in-middle-of-cycle-and-will-run-forever it says: The water heat thermostat is different from most thermostats. For instance in line with the element with two red wires is a high-limit thermostat. It normally has a closed circuit so the element can heat. If it gets to hot then the high-limit opens the circuit to stop the heating. The water thermostat is opposite. It has a normally open circuit that will close when the temperature is right to advance the timer out of the water heat stall area. Even though this is for a different model, it sounds like the high limit thermostat is the problem ... but I don't have ANY background on this stuff. Since my heating light just stays on, it seems like it isn't closing? I also read about taking the thermostat out and heating it in a skillet and checking for open/close. I might try that.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

I would suspect the operating thermostat is either faulty or it not pressed up against the bottom of the tub well enough for heat to transfer to the operating thermostat. The operating thermostat is the one with the white wire with a black stripe and an orange wire with a blue stripe and orange wire. The thermostat must close and complete the circuit in order for the timer to begin advancing in the water heat cycles. If you were to jump the two wires together on the operation thermostat, the timer should begin advancing. NOTE: If you try jumping the two wires together on the operating thermostat, be sure to disconnect the dishwasher from the power source before doing so.

The operating thermostat part #3373359 for Kenmore dishwasher model 665.1677191 can be ordered from Searsparsdirect. 

 This may be the issue. If not, please reply and I will be glad to assist you further.

I am still confused about the thermostats. I can see two holes going up to the tub and assume thermostats are there. One has a white wire with red letters and the other has a single red OR orange wire with black letters. I only see one wire going to each. I am afraid to pull it out because I might not be able to get it back in. The manual doesn't really help identify just what holds it up there. I don't see so well laying on the floor .. and even with a mirror and flashlight it is hard to tell what is what. I don't want a service call as I live out in the country and calls are very expensive. 2 years ago I ordered a new water intake valve and was able to replace it thanks to this forum. I did a reset on the option and didn't designate heat water and it still does. I don't think it used to heat without the button pushed in.. but now it does. That must tell me something.. and I am guessing the brains of the machine. That thought scares me. I haven't tried jumping it because I only see the single wire going to each.

Right now I am just manually advancing the cycle with a kitchen timer to remind me to do it. I have time to think without having to do dishes by hand, so that is good. I am sure I can figure it out EVENTUALLY.

Paula: The operating thermostat will not be in the bottom of the pump sump or inside a hole. It will be positioned up against the bottom of the tub and in some cases in could be behind the outer door panel pressed up against the inner door liner. There should be two wires connected to each thermostat. The operating thermostat may have a white wire with a black stripe and tan wire with red stripe. The high limit will have an orange wire with a blue stripe and a solid orange wire. Both thermostats will have two wires connected to them. If this is not the case, double check the model number of your dishwasher.

I guess I can't locate the thermostats. I will look again. They should be near the motor relay (that I can see easily) but I can't see them. I got the model number 16771 off of the inside of the dishwasher. I attached the image and it also is at: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Dishwasher-Parts/Model-6651677191/0582/0130000/10036405/00003?blt=06&prst=&shdMod= I took off the bottom panels since that is what the image showed. I have not looked inside the door since the image of the door doesn't show any thermostats there.

Thanks for the model number. It really helps to have the model dishwasher we're dealing with.

There seems to be two problems. The dishwasher is noisy and the last cycle it did not drain the water out.

The image below shows how to get into the sump to check the screens for obstructions.

If the dishwasher is not draining there is one simple thing to try. That would be to remove the drain hose from under the sink. Lower the hose over a shallow pan and we the hose is below the water in the tub it should drain due to gravity. If nothing drains out then there is an obstruction or clog in the system.

This dishwasher doesn't have a separate drain pump. The motor runs one direction for wash and one direction for drain. If the motor doesn't reverse the problem is usually the timer/control.

I hope this helps but reply with any additional details or questions for further assistance.

Q:

my 15 yr old Kenmore dishwasher does not fill enough. I suspect the water valve. Can the valve be cleaned? Is there potentially a problem with a timing switch a

A:

Taking the valve off and cleaning it can be risky. You could have hard water deposits and/or debris that are clogging the inlet water screen on the valve. If you clean this screen and some of the debris or flakes of the deposits get into the solenoid water valve, the valve could stick open and cause a flood in your kitchen.

I recommend that you shut off the breaker , shut the water supply cut-off valve to the dishwasher and pull it out from under the counter. Here is a link for an installation guide that will help you pull the dishwasher out (and reinstall it): Installation Instructions . Once you pull out the dishwasher, disconnect the water supply line (arrange towels or a shallow pan to catch residual water that will come out of the line. Place the end of the water supply line in a bucket and then briefly open the water supply cut-off valve for the dishwasher to check for proper water supply and pressure from the supply line. If the water pressure or flow is weak from the supply line then you will need to resolve this problem to fix you fill problem in the dishwasher.

If the water flow through the supply line is okay then I recommend that you replace the fill valve assembly (part 3374621). You can order this part from the Sears PartsDirect website. Be sure that you have the breaker shut off for the dishwasher when accessing internal components. Also, use Teflon tape to seal the threaded fittings when you install the new valve.

This information should help you fix this dishwasher fill problem. If you need more help, submit additional details and we will assist you further.

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 .
