Hi experts and friends.

I need some help to troubleshoot the problem, thank you.
Kenmore dishwasher, model 665.15639000, stopped working while it was in the middle of cycle yesterday. I might have smelled something burning from the dish washer but not for sure. Here is observation.
1. Red lights are solid on the control panel.
2. After select start, water is filled to normal level.
3. It doesn't go to next cycle. I could not here sounds from motor.
4. If I hit cancel, I don't hear sound from drain pump.
5. I opened the access panel at the bottom, it doesn't seem cables were loosing. (I am not familiar with these parts. So I could be wrong)

I would appreciate your help to do further troubleshooting.

Thank you everyone.
Mike

Hi Mike,

I'd first look at your control board and see if you notice any burnt spots on it.

If so you'd need to replace the control board and that will fix it. Unfortunately, its No Longer Available.

Here's the control board for your model:
Main Control Board WP8530929


There is a video in the control board part link that shows you how to access it. Turn the breaker OFF to your dishwasher first!

Let us know what you find.
