Question and Answers

Q:

Why won't my Kenmore Dishwasher start?

A:

What you’re describing is a shorted keypad. When the keypad shorts you will not be able to select any cycles & the shorted keypads will flash. I recommend replacing the keypad assembly, #1 in the image provided.

I have the same problem with my Kenmore 665.17483300. I have replaced both the key pad and control board, but it didn't help. Initially after power was off for several hours, I was able get the self test to run, but no problems were detected. Afterwards I tried to run a cycle, and the smart wash started flashing again. Any ideas?

I have the same problem with model 13273, under 2 years old. I press smart wash and it beeps. Only way to fix it is to cycle the circuit breaker. Any ideas?

I have the same model and when you try to start it and it actually starts, when you jiggle the float, the dryer light and the 4hr delay light flash opposite each other. The wash cycle light and smart cycle light come one when the door for the detergent opens. I start the process with normal wash and the start button.

I know that it can be very difficult to have issues with your dishwasher. If no water is circulating then I suspect the problem is with the main wash impeller. This is what pumps the water into the spray arms. It is possible that it could be clogged and need to be clean, but if there is any damage to it, it will need to be replaced. The images below will show you how to access and remove this. If you don't feel comfortable doing this yourself, please click on this link to schedule service: Sears Home Services. Click on "Get Started" and follow the directions, click on the red "NEXT" button to continue. I hope this helps. Please feel free to let me know if you need further assistance. We are always here to help. Thank you for using Manage My Life.com.

Yes, I have seen this link. I have already replaced the key pad as this link suggested and it did not help. I went a step closer and replaced the control board, but I still have the same symptoms. I have also ohm'd the thermal fuse and it still has continuity. I was able to get it to run the self test cycle a couple of times and nothing shows up. Currently it's back to a flashing Smart Wash and nothing works.

Thanks for contacting ManageMyLife.com. I understand how frustrating it is having trouble with your dishwasher not running. We are here to help. Dezeray provided a good link on this problem. Replacing the keypad should have solved the problem. The thermal fuse is good because, there is a sign of life in the dishwasher. I recommend check the tail. That is the ribbon cable between the keypad and the electronic control. Also, check the interconnect board. Both parts come with console assembly. The door latch should also be checked with a multimeter. The images below is a keypad test to help with troubleshooting the console. I split the image in 2  to help make the image more readable. I hope this helps.

Hi John, I ohm'd out the tail, interconnect board, and switch on the latch. All appear good. Remember also that I purchased a new keypad plus a control board, and the symptoms are still the same. I also checked the keypad with the chart you provided, except for the 3 keys I don't have. Also, my keypad has a smart wash key that is the one that I have problems with. I found out tonight that if I remove power and then reapply, no keys will be lighted. However, the only keys that light when they are depressed are the "smart wash" or "cancel". If I press smart wash, the key will light, but you can't do anything else except pressing the cancel will turn off the light. Then if you press cancel again, it will actually attempt to drain the tub and if you put water in it, it will actually drain the tub. Nothing else will work though. Left unattended for awhile with power on, it will eventually go to a flashing "normal wash" or "smart wash" or both. This has become very frustrating. I just wish I had a set of troubleshooting steps I could reference.

Lee, I provided another diagnostic test for the dishwasher. Also, check the thermistor with the meter. Make sure it is working properly. Otherwise, the dishwasher is acting like a software glitch or a new part with the same problem. Under this strange situation, a service technician may have to fix the problem.

Hi John, I tried the self test sequence, but since none of the keys besides Smart Wash and Cancel respond, this did not work either. I ohm'd the thermistor and is 49.9k. If I remove power, I can run the Cancel/Drain cycle, but that is all. If there is standing water, it will get pumped out. What do you mean by software glitch? I have 2 controller boards and they basically do the same thing. Is there some other electronics in the control circuit? The keypads appear fine and also the tail. I have ohm'd all these out, plus the spare keypad I bought generates the same symptoms. Surely there must be other items that would cause the lockup with the flashing Smart Wash or Normal keys that I could check? Again could you elaborate on "software glitch"?

Lee, A software glitch is, when a computer acts strange and rebooting the fixes the problem. The dishwasher reboot is cut the power for 2 minutes only. Once the time is up, power up the dishwasher. If the problem remains, it is not a software problem. Since you could not do the keypad test I recommend checking each key with the meter. There should be a connection from each key to the computer. If there is not, the circuit is open. That is very strange for 2 keypads with the exact problem. The remaining electrical parts is, the motor, and heating element. Those parts are not the problem. I suspect a part is failing powered up and checking good without power. This may be something a technician has to fix.

Thanks for your response John. Currently, after removing power, I am only able to run a cancel/drain cycle. There was a point in time that occasionally after removing power, I could run the self test which ran through several phases, but I'm not sure it really ran the complete test as it finished in probably 5 minutes or less, but never displayed any flashing error codes. I can no longer do this though and nothing has really changed. The chart you sent me to check the switches didn't have the smart wash on it. Do you have access to the chart for my model number 665.17483300 which I now have memorized from typing it so frequently? Also is there any component that if it fails, it is logged in nonvolatile memory such that even after removing power, the controller will no longer respond. It seems to me that the keypad and controller board are probably good, but I haven't really checked anything else besides the thermal fuse and thermistor. What is the small sensor by the steam vent? Can it shut down the unit?

My thought is that if I can't fix it, it's going to the dump. Especially if I can't even figure out what the problem is. Also, this will probably be my last kenmore as it has been problematic, but not too hard to fix. I don't mind making minor repairs, but normally I give up on something when the repair costs don't seem to have value. I only like to call a repair technician if I don't have time to do it myself, or the complexity is above my comfort range. If I have to call someone because the unit is too flakey, it's time to take it to the dump and dry to find a better unit next time. I quit buying maytag front loaders for this very reason.

Lee. Here is the only other schematic I have on the image below. The test I provided is for your dishwasher, but it does not mention smart wash. Did you check the soil sensor located in the pump? It is also a thermistor. The second image shows the soil sensor. That is what smart wash uses, to determine if the water is clean or dirty.
