Question and Answers

Q:

My dishwasher keeps washing and washing and washing. It never stops washing, it never moves to rinse etc. What is wrong?

A:

The problem with the dishwasher can be very frustrating. I did some research on your model number but was not able to find a solution. Your expert will be able to help answer your question. It may take two business days. If you would like to look into Sears doing the repair here is a link for Sears Home Services. I do hope that everything works out on the dishwasher.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

 It would be very odd for it to display "CL" while it's running. The "CL" indicates the door is open because the control does not detect the door switch(s) not closed. If you open the door while it's running, it will display "CL".

The rinse and hold cycle should run approximately 18 minutes which consists of 2 rinses. A normal wash cycle will run approximately 105 minutes or 1hr and 45 minutes under heavy soil conditions. 

 I added a link to the Use and Care Guide to reference the cycle times.

The heating element must heat water to certain degree (145) before the turbidity/thermistor will allow the wash cycle to proceed to the rinse cycles. The cycle times are approximate and will vary with options selected. The sensor will check the water temperature and if it's not hot enough, the time will delay while it heats the water. This will happen in the main wash in all cycles. This also happens even if HIGH TEMP wash has not been selected.

Check the incoming water temperature and it should be a minimum of 120 degrees entering the dishwasher. Also, check and confirm the heating element is working. I added an image below that may be helpful. 

The images below will also have water/service test cycle which I recommend running to confirm if the heater is working.

 I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post. 

 If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services.

Glo: I assume the heating element was replaced because it was not working. If the new heating element is not heating, it could have an open high limit thermostat, faulty control board or just a loose or burnt wire connection in the heater circuit. I recommend disconnecting the high limit thermostat and testing it with an Ohm meter for continuity. If the high limit measure continuity and there are no loose or burnt wire connections in the heater circuit, I suspect it has a faulty electronic control board. I added images in the last post which has the wiring diagram.

Glo: Is the dishwasher running when it CL and 84 is displaying? If so, it likely has a faulty electronic control board. Here is URL to the Use and Care Manual.

I have sears elite dishwasher 665134k710 model and it keeps washing. I have replaced the hi-temp thermal sensor under the tub and the controller and it still never cycles to rinse. It will cycle to off if started at a rinse cycle. The water is very hot and the washer stops and starts I assume it trying to since water temperature or what? Are there other sensor, relays that need replacement? Thanks, John

A:

It can be a real headache when your dishwasher continuously washes without stopping. I did some research and provided a link to a similar question and answer on our site. I hope this will shed a little more light on the issue until the Expert responds to your question in more detail within 24 to 48 hours.

A:

First you will want to verify the dishwasher is heating the water.  At the end of the cycle the dishes should almost be to hot to pick up with bare hands.  If the water is not being heated then the dishwasher will not finish the cycle.  There should be a water heat thermostat that closes the circuit to advance the cycle.  The water heat thermostat is different from most thermostats in that it has an open circuit that closes when the water reaches the wash temperature.  Try to verify the water is being heated.  You can also check if the element works in the dry part of the cycle.  You can repair below with any additional details for further assistance.
