Kenmore Elite Dishwasher #66517472300: Install Part #8564542, control board, because the unit stopped completely, touch panel illuminated,

and froze with several lights on. I checked the door lock mechanism & door switch, tested float switch. Power to machine is fine. After checking these parts, installed the control board, and still the unit won't start at all. The new control board wasn't sealed, so I'm trying to determine if the part is defective. Is there a testing procedure that I can apply to this board to determine if it is defective? Thank you for your help.

Hi Mark,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

I am sorry you are having problems with your dishwasher.

I recommend running the RAPID ADVANCE SERVICE FEATURE AND DIAGNOSTICS CYCLES. Pressing the following option keys in the sequence shown will either start the Diagnostics Cycle or turn on the Rapid Advance feature for stepping through customer selectable cycles:

HIGH TEMP SCRUB, AIR DRY, HIGH TEMP SCRUB, AIR DRY

Or

SANI RINSE, AIR DRY, SANI RINSE, AIR DRY

(Note: HIGH TEMP SCRUB = POWER SCOUR = HIGH TEMP SCOUR)

(Note: AIR DRY = NO HEAT DRY = ENERGY SAVER DRY)

If the above key sequence is entered with the dishwasher in Standby, the Diagnostics Cycle is started. The Diagnostics Cycle can be rapid-advanced, interval by interval, by pressing the Pots and Pans/Heavy or Anti- Bacteria/Cookware cycle key.

This does not use the start button. If the dishwasher functions in this cycle, you can check the individual buttons using the CHECKING KEYPAD OPERATIONS; I have provided this information in the image below.

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

.



Here is a link that you may use to view the parts list diagram and for parts purchases;

Sears Parts Direct

.

Please perform the diagnostic tests detailed here and report back with your findings. Be sure to record any failures and when they occur along with any error codes that are displayed. I am looking forward to assisting you again in the near future.

Thanks again for using Manage My Life.
