    Touch pads are not working on my Kenmore 665. The touchpad lights up for a few seconds and then goes off.

    After loving this dishwasher for about 1-2 years, it will only do a wash/rinse cycle, but will not go to the dry cycle. I actually can't tell if it is on wash/rinse, but it does the water action, then pauses, drains, and starts it all over again. It will run for hours doing this, and never seems to progress in its cycle. Since it's a digital not a manual panel, I cannot crank it forward to continue the cycle. Ah, the good ole days. Any ideas?

It appears your dispenser wax switch has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

The issue with your dishwasher is more than likely the "thermal fuse" inside the control panel...it is all too common with those machines unfortunately.

I've attached a link at the bottom which will show step by step how to repair your machine.

You will first need to retrieve a new fuse, part number 8193762.
**IT IS A REVISED FUSE KIT TO THE ORIGINAL (designed to prevent this from happening in the future), BUT COMES WITH THE PARTS AND INSTRUCTIONS REQUIRED TO COMPLETE THE REPAIR/UPDATE. AS SHOWN BELOW.**
i.e.
macmarkus_348.jpg

these are available at most local brick & mortar parts vendors or on-line at depots such as "repairclinic.com" or "searspartsdirect.com" to name a couple.

In the video just follow the instruction as per removing the panel and turn the power off of course and you'll be fine.

Hope this helps move you forward. Let me know if I can assist you further and I will try and help in any manner I can. Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Confused about the drying cycle. Is it only selected if one chooses the heated drying and the light goes "on" the panel?


The heating element in the bottom of your dishwasher will only come on to help dry your dishes when you have pushed the button for "Heated Dry." Various different models will have different indicators that let you know when it is in the drying part of the cycle. Hope this helps.

Water not heating up and not drying


Hello

If your dishwasher is not heating properly, troubleshoot the issue. You can often repair this problem and eliminate service fees.

Incoming Water
Most manufacturers recommend that the water coming into your dishwasher be at least 120 degrees Fahrenheit. If the water is too cold, then your dishes don't clean properly. Or the dishwasher must run longer to heat up the water. Test the water temperature by running the hot water on your faucet for about 2 minutes or until it gets really hot. Place a waterproof thermometer under the water. If the water is too cold, increase the water temperature setting on your water heater.

Thermostat
The thermostat is responsible for regulating the water and drying cycle temperature. If this thermostat isn't working, the heating element at the base of the dishwasher tub may not come on. Test this element by selecting the hottest temperature setting. Run the dishwasher on the shortest cycle. Let the dishwasher run for a few minutes, and open it up. If the dishwasher water is not hot or the drying cycle isn't starting, order a new thermostat from a parts dealer since this component is difficult to fix.


Heating Element/Drying Fan

The heating element heats up the water and air. Access this element by removing the bottom rack. It looks like a long black rod. If any part of this component is broken or corroded, you must order a new one. You usually cannot fix this element. The drying fan is located in the main housing of the dishwasher, and it blows air around your dishes to dry them. Check this part by disconnecting the dishwasher from the power supply and opening up the housing. Examine the fan, and see if any dirt or debris is preventing it from moving. Clean it. If the fan won't turn at all or if the motor is burnt out, order a new fan since it's difficult to repair this part.

Additional Concerns

If your dishwasher isn't drying your dishes properly, see if you have selected a heated drying cycle. An air drying cycle doesn't completely dry your dishes. Never overload the dishwasher, as this prevents heat from circulating around your dishes, keeping them from drying properly. Plastic and Teflon dishes don't usually completely dry. You must towel-dry these items.

My Bosch Dishwasher is not drying my dishes now. The model number is SHE44C05UC.


Hi there,

Unfortunately, it seems that the heating element has failed. The dishwasher uses steam to heat the tub to dry the dishes. I suspect your dishes are also being washed in cold water.

To check this, please run a regular full wash cycle. Allow the washer to fill with water and run for about 10 minutes, then open the door and feel the water temperature in the bottom of the washer. If the water is cold, it's more than likely the heating element has failed.

There are other possible faults which would cause the element not to heat, but these often prevent the dishwasher from completing the cycle. If the water is cold but the dishwasher still drains the water at the end - and completes the cycle - the heating element has probably failed.

Please try this simple test for water temperature and let me know if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

The dishwasher doesnot dry anything.


  • Check the rinse aid indicator beside the rinse aid dispenser cap. If the indicator window is clear, refill the dispenser. The dishwasher will retain moisture and the heat dry option will not perform properly without rinse aid. Turn the dispenser cap clockwise and lift it up to remove it. Pour rinse aid into the dispenser until the indicator appears full. Place the dispenser cap over the dispenser and turn it counterclockwise to tighten it.

  • Load the dishes properly so that all dishes can drain after the rinse cycle. Do not overload the dishwasher. Towel-dry plastic dishes because they will not dry completely during the dry cycle.

  • Select the heated dry option on the dishwasher. The air-dry and energy-saving dry options will not perform as well as the heated dry.

    Hello there:
    If` you ahve already checked all of the filters and they are ok than your drying cycle has problems to check these check these: Heating element Drying fan Thermostat Heating element Your dishwasher has an electrical heating element that helps to dry the dishes. If the element is burned out, the dishes won't dry properly, and you need to replace the element.

    Not drying dishes


    Without knowing the make and model of your dishwasher, the most probable causes of no drying is:
    1.) RinseAid being empty or not dispensing (as in you never seem to have to refill the dispenser.)
    2.) The Heating element has failed. But if it has failed, you would also have foggy, film on your glassware.
    3.) The timer is failing to turn on the heating element during the (at least) the heating element during drying cycle.
    Good Luck!

    Model # dwu7702aae has heat delay light coming on during cycle. Why?


    Heater is used to both heat water during clean cycle and dry dishes after wash cycle. Most washers have either a separate switch for Heat or Dry for optional use, or some have the water heat and dish dry options built into cycle set options.

    You can save money by turning off the Dish Dry option since it is a very in-efficient way to dry dishes. Instead, open the wishwasher door after washing cycle completes, just enough so fresh air can get into, and humid air can escape, dishwasher.

    Water Heat option is only needed for dried food on dishes, and is never needed if dishes are either rised off before putting them in the dishwasher, or rinsed off inside the dishwaser with a Rinse cycle, if they are to stand for a time waiting for a full dishwasher for wash.

    Whirlpool dishwasher is not fully drying dishes


    Are you using jet dry or a similar drying agent? If not you should be. Also check to make sure the heater is getting hot in the dry cycle, just place your hand over the heating element to see if it's generating heat, don't touch it as it will burn you.
