Question and Answers

Q:

Why does the Delay Hour Light flash 2-4-6 and prevent the dishwasher from running?

A:

This type of failure normally indicates that you have a stuck key on the membrane keypad. In rare instances, it could be caused by a failed electronic control board. I recommend replacing the control panel insert with membrane switches part number 154433701. It costs $130.16 not including tax shipping and handling from the Sears PartsDirect website.

This should fix your problem. If the problem continues after this membrane keypad is replaced, then the electronic control board would need to be replaced as well. This is unlikely but remotely possible.

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

Q:

I need to get the bottom panel of my dishwasher off to check the drain pipe to see if it is clogged. how do I get the bottom off? we are financially strained,

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern. I added an image below with the basic instructions on removing the lower access panel. In order to remove the lower access panel, remove the four (4) hex head screws as shown in the image below.

NOTE: Disconnect the power supply from the dishwasher before removing the lower access panel. The blockage is most likely will be found in the fitting (key#15) that the drain hose is attached to under the dishwasher. Be sure to have all the water removed from the tub before you disconnect the drain hose from under the dishwasher. Once you have the drain hose disconnected, remove the drain/check valve fitting by turning it counterclockwise (CCW). Once you have the fitting removed, clean the debris from inside the fitting and from where it was removed from and your dishwasher will likely drain normally again.

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 .
