Question and Answers

Q:

How do install the new dispenser on my Kenmore dishwasher model 66515912001?

A:

The part number that you indicated (8558128) is a valid substitution for the original part. This part will not include the rinse sensor (Key 11 in the image below). You normally have to remove this sensor from the old dispenser and attach it to the new one. This should explain the extra wires.

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

Q:

Check valve replacement is not the same size as the original 66515912001 Kenmore Elite Dishwasher

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern. Part number 8268375 is the correct replacement check valve. It should fit not cause any drain issues when installed. As long as the round portion of the check valve will cover the drain port and open and close, there will be no problem installing it. It cannot cause any damage. If the dishwasher will drain and the check valve seats and does not allow any water to drain back into the sump from the drain hose, your dishwasher will be operate normally. I hope this is helpful. The worst that can happen is that the check valve would not open or close preventing it from draining or it could allow water to back up into the dishwasher onve the drain pump turns off.

Q:

Why won't our dishwasher start even though the panel lights work?

A:

I would need to know more specific details about the wiring that overheated and was replaced. If the overheated wiring was in the junction box to the dishwasher, this would normally indicate that you had a short circuit somewhere in the dishwasher wiring harness or a component. If this is what happened, I recommend that you disconnect electrical power and examine the internal wiring harness and components of the dishwasher to look for loose, broken or burned wires.

If the dishwasher will not fill, you could have a wiring problem or failure in the inlet water valve. You could also have a failed control board. Disconnect electrical power and use the wiring diagram below to check the connections and wiring from the control board to the inlet water valve.

If you cannot find the apparent problem, I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair this problem. The technician may need to check the voltage from the board to the inlet water valve when the cycle is started. This type of live voltage check is dangerous. I don’t recommend attempting this check yourself. If the control is not sending voltage to the water valve to start the cycle, it will probably need to be replaced.

Since you want to attempt to diagnose and repair this problem yourself, I recommend that you examine the wiring as described above and resubmit your question with more details. Also, indicate whether you have a plastic or stainless steel dishwasher tub in the unit.
