Question and Answers

Q:

Does it take an expert to change the heating element on a Kenmore dishwasher model 665.17032403?

A:

If the dishwasher just needs a new heating element, then you should be safe in buying the part and having a local technician install it.

I see that the Sears PartsDirect website does have the heating element (part number 8563007) for $81.99 not including tax, shipping and handling.

Although replacing this element does involve working with water seals at the bottom of the dishwasher tub, it is not a complicated repair. A local technician with reasonable skills should be able to replace the element and properly verify that the water seals on the heater element are not leaking.

If you have questions about the diagnosis and estimate that was provided by the Sears technician, I recommend calling the Sears Service Center that sent the technician. There should be a phone number on the paperwork that you received.

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

Q:

range does not get higher than 100 degrees

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on your symptom and details, the high limit thermal switch has likely tripped during the high heat of the self clean cycle. The thermal switch is located on the back of the range and will likely have a red wire with a white stripe and a black wire with a white stripe connected to it. You will need to remove the range and take the rear panel off in order to access the thermal switch. There will be a red reset button in the middle of the thermal switch to push and reset. There are no video or written instructions. 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 .

NOTE: Disconnect the range from the power supply before removing the back panel and resetting the thermal switch. I strongly suggest calling a service technician to diagnose why the thermal switch tripped.

Q:

TEMPERATURE 100 DEGREES HIGHER

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

If you're sure the thermometer you are using is accurate, you will likely need to replace the oven thermostat or just set the thermostat 100 degrees lower than need be. The oven temperature calibration adjustments are made by loosening the two screws on the back side of the thermostat knob and rotating the skirt. I added an image below with the calibration instructions.

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