Kenmore Ultrawash QuietGuard Deluxe - mode 665.13749K601 - no water?

by Manage My Life Last activity date:

My dishwasher Kenmore Ultrawash QuietGuard Deluxe - mode 665.13749K601 - started acting up yesterday. It was as if it had no power. After some gyrations (disconnect/reconnect control panel cable from the module, resetting the control module by button combinations), I managed to get the panel working again and I was congratulating myself on a successful repair. That euphoria was short lived:( The washer started but was acting strangely. It makes the usual noises and then stops. There doesn't appear to be any water coming into the DW (checked by opening the door during wash cycle) and I suspect the control module is sensing the lack of water and shutting itself down.

There is definitely water in the pipes. Is there some way to check that water controller is working correctly here? What are the next steps I should take?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks for your help guys! My multimeter (which I haven't used in more than 10 years!) is missing. I will get a new one and report back with what I find.

The next step would be to check voltage to the water valve. This is more difficult than you might think since the wires must be connected to the valve to get a good voltage reading. Use caution if you try this.

A silly cause of this problem is the float is out of position. Check the float is in position. When you move it up and down you should hear a click from the float switch.

Check the drain cycle and see if the drain pump will run. If the drain pump or even main circulation pump will run then the door switches are okay.

If you have a meter and are comfortable using it then the best way to check this problem is to check voltage to the water valve. You may need really small leads to make this check.

I hope this information is helpful. You can reply with any additional details or questions for further assistance.
