Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the dishwasher. The inter door panel is secured with torx screws. They are going to be T20 or T25. The manufacture changes them from time to time. Please make sure you turn the power off to the dishwasher before you attempt any service of the dishwasher.

I would like to add the following information on the clean light flashing. The clean light flashing fault code indicates that the control board did not detect a 2 degree F increase in the water temperature if the initial inlet water temperature was greater than 90 degrees. It will also trip if a 4 degree increase is not detected when initial inlet water temperature is less than 90 degrees.

Possible causes that can keep the water from properly heating include:

  • Heating element is bad.
  • Wiring to the heating circuit is loose or broken.
  • Thermostat (thermistor) is bad. Wiring to the thermistor is bad.
  • Neutral side of the door switch is bad.
  • Water not coming in or a lack of water.
  • Siphoning of water during filling due to improper drain hose installation.

You can reset the control by running the diagnostic test cycle. Start this cycle by pressing the following buttons in this order: HEATED DRY, NORMAL WASH, HEATED DRY, NORMAL WASH. The buttons must be pushed within 5 seconds. After pushing these buttons, all the control lights will turn on and then the dishwasher will complete a short test cycle. After the test cycle, the control will be reset.

You can start a new cycle and crack the door to stop the cycle after the filling is complete and before the spray starts. Open the door and check the water level in the tub. The water should be within a 1/4 inch to just touching the bottom of the heater element.

Check the heater element. If it is not heating, disconnect electrical power and check the wiring. If the heater element is bad, it will need to be replaced. If not, your clean light fault code will return.

If you reset the control and the fault does not repeat, you should be able to continue to use the dishwasher. Monitor the water fill and the heating circuit for problems.

Please let me know if you need further assistance on the repair of the dishwasher.

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 .

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Q:

my Kenmore dishwasher model 665.17029401 will not start?

A:

Stubborn dishwashers usually have something they want us to do to help reset whatever has happened. I found a previous expert post that has a sequence you might try while you wait for the expert. I attached the link below. If it is an equipment failure and you do need repairs, an option is to visit Sears Home Services and use the handy scheduler.

If you tried to reset the breaker then I assume the dishwasher has no lights or does anything.

There are two things to check for this problem.

Make sure the power is not turned off on a wall switch.

If there are no lights then the first thing to check is the thermal fuse. If the thermal fuse in the console blows then there will be no lights or any functions.

If there are lights but the dishwasher won't run then the problem can be the door switches. Even with bad door switches there would still be display lights in the console.

The image below will help you if you wish to try a little do-it-yourself. Remember to turn the power to the dishwasher off first.

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

You will at some point need a volt/ohm meter to check the fuse and door switches. If the unit is completely dead then the fuse is not very expensive and you might feel like giving it a try.

The 8193762 fuse is about $20 dollars and can be ordered from the following site: Sears PartsDirect .

It can be checked for continuity with a meter if one is available.

I hope this gives you a start to resolving this problem. No one needs a broken dishwasher during the holidays. Give me a reply with any additional details or questions for further assistance.

A:

Yes you can check the fuse with a meter. You can check continuity across the fuse. If the circuit is open the fuse is bad. If you don't have a meter then you can use a small piece of insulated wire to bypass the fuse to check this problem. Be sure to turn the power off first before accessing the fuse.
