Q:

How to remove top rack 66517269401 Kenmore Elite Dishwasher

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I can certainly assist you in locating the instructions to remove the top rack from your dishwasher. I did look into the model number you have provided and I have found information to assist you. 

Slide the upper rack outwards until it stops. Look at the front end of each upper rack slide rails. There will be a plastic end cap (key#20) located at the end of the rail. It may come off like in the image I sent or it could release a different way.

You will need to examine the end cap and locate how it’s locked onto the rack slide. It will have a couple of small tabs locking it onto the rail, push or pry it out of the rail and the end cap may slide off forwards or it may twist left/right or maybe even hinge upwards and off.

Once you have the end cap removed from each rail, slide the upper rack assembly out of the rails.



Let me know if this helps,.

A heater fault detection program has been added to the electronic control to monitor the operation of the heater. If a temperature rise in the water is not detected during the first 8 minutes of the beginning of the main wash, the dishwasher will shut down and flash the "Clean" light and disable the dishwasher.

A fault will be indicated if: A 2�F increase in the water temperature is not obtained (inlet water temp greater than 90�F) or A 4�F increase in the water temperature is not obtained (inlet water temp less than 90�F).

If the correct temperature rise is not detected, the dishwasher will drain and blink the clean light 7 times to signal to the consumer to call for service. The detection will be ignored if the temperature is out of its normal range 64 - 160� F or the door is opened during the first 8 minutes of the main wash. This is to prevent a false detection.

Possible causes that could keep the water from properly heating:

An open Heating Element circuit (heater, thermostat, or wiring) Neutral side Door Switch not closing (check switch and door latch assembly) Note: Neutral side door switch only used for heater circuit Water not coming in or lack of water (check inlet valve circuit and water pressure) Lack of water circulation (pump motor or restriction in circulation channels) Siphoning of water during fill (check drain hose for proper installation) To reset the control press these buttons in this sequence: Heated Dry, Normal, Heated Dry, Normal and then let the unit run for 2-3 minutes and then you press the Cancel/Drain button and allow it to completely drain and reset. The dishwasher will run and operate normally unless it does not detect a water temperature rise again.

I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your washer if the "Clean" light flashes again after resetting and clearing the control board. If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician.
