Q:

dishwasher repair 66517579200

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the issue you're having with the dishwasher not filling with water. I know how frustrating that is to have happen.

I suspect the reason why your dishwasher is not filling with water is because of a stuck or faulty pressure switch. In order for the water inlet valve to open it must have a voltage supply and a neutral. The timer must close contact 10 and B10 to complete the line voltage to the water valve and the pressure switch must close contacts 11 and 12 to complete the neutral path to the water inlet valve. I recommend disconnecting the voltage supply to dishwasher and then remove the lower access panel. You will see the water level pressure switch with a White wire, Yellow wire with a Red stripe and Brown wire. Disconnect the three wires and test the water level switch with an ohm meter. Terminals 11 and 12 must make and close in order to complete the neutral path to the water inlet valve. 

If you would feel more confident have a Sears Home Service technician help assist with the diagnosis/repair, you can call 1-800-469-4663, or click here to be directed to the page to set up service.

I hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

Q:

How do I run a diagnostic test cycle on my Kenmore dishwasher model 665.17579200?

A:

The key dance to enter the diagnostic cycle in this dishwasher is shown in the image below. The image also includes a cycle timing chart for the diagnostic test cycle and notes. I also provided a wiring diagram for the dishwasher.

The heating element is only energized for a short period of time as shown in the timing chart. You may be better able to check the heating element at the end of a heated drying cycle. There is a 6 minute delay in the drying cycle before the heating element is energized.

To properly check the heating element, I recommend shutting off the breaker to the dishwasher and checking the continuity through the element with a volt ohm meter. If you are able to access the wiring leads on the heating element, you can pull one of the wires off and measure the resistance through the element. If the element measures between 10 and 35 ohms of resistance, then it should be okay. An open high limit thermostat could prevent your dryer from heating as shown on the wiring diagram below. You could also have a wiring failure in the heater circuit. You can check the continuity of the heating circuit form the wires that connect to the control board (with the dishwasher breaker still off). Measure the resistance between the white/red wire of the P6 connector to the white wire on the P7 connector on the control board. You should measure between 10 and 35 ohms (the same resistance as the heating element) through this circuit. If you measure open (infinite resistance) through this circuit, then you either have an open high limit thermostat or a wiring failure. You can check the continuity of the high limit thermostat directly off the component on the outside bottom of the dishwasher sump.

This technical information should help you determine the cause of a heating failure in the dishwasher. Most models of these dishwashers have a heater detection fault that will cause the clean light to blink if the water is not heating properly. Running the diagnostic cycle usually clears this fault and resets the control.

If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.

Lyle, the image attached is really small when opening it. Is there a higher resolution version of it? Thanks.
