    Default Help with Kenmore ( Whirlpool) 665.1691591 Lights, but won't cycle or drain

    Hello. I have an older Kenmore 665.1691591 dishwasher. I understand it was manufactured by Whirlpool. I only run a load every other week and the appliance has always performed flawlessly.

    When I went to start a wash cycle tonight, I noticed there was still water in the bottom of the machine. I closed the door and pressed drain. "02 Minutes" lights up as normal and I hear a click from the control board area, but that's it. Doesn't drain, doesn't make any noises like it's trying to drain. When I press the start or cycle buttons I hear beeps and the display lights up reflecting the chosen cycle as it does normally, but again...that's it. I hear no noises consistent with the machine actually attempting to start a cycle. The display does light up to notify me when the door is open and it goes out when the door is properly secured.

    I tried shutting the power off at the circuit board to see if that would clear any electrical issues, but no change.

    Main control board or something else?

    Thank you in advance for any assistance or suggestions.

    Hi,

    Main control board or something else?
    With no filling, no motor for wash, no motor for drain...does sound more like the control issue....but that is coming up as NLA

    D/w shopping time.

    Update: I was able to source a refurbished control board for my Kenmore. Installed it today and the machine behaves EXACTLY as described above.

    Any ideas?

    Thank you!

    Edit: When I turn the lower spray arm by hand should it spin freely (which mine does) or as though I'm spinning a motor along with it?

    Spray arm should just spin freely.

    Can you post a copy of the wire diagram that comes with the unit?

    Will do when I get home today. Please forgive the dumb question, but can the switch have failed if the display is showing "Door Open" when the door is open and that alert turns off when the door is closed? Second dumb question: Why are there two switches for the single purpose of ensuring the door is closed/latched?

    Also, there is a problem with your link to "Attachment 425"
