Problems with Kenmore Ultra Wash 3 Dishwasher model #665.1677993

To Whom It May Concern,

My dishwasher was working fine yesterday. Now when I turn the know to place it on wash it just doesn't run. All of the necessary options are already set so I know it is not that. I don't know why it is not running, can someone please offer suggestions. The model # is 665.1677993, Ultra Wash 3 Dishwasher. Please reply as soon as possible.

Thank You.

the circuit breakers in the electrical panel. You know like when the lights go out in the house you need to flip the breaker or the fuse in the utility room or garage or something. You need to make sure there is electricity to the DW. Do any lights come on the dw or is it comepletely dead. If you don't know which CB'er it is you can turn all of then off, then on ,but it will screw up the tv's and vcrs you will have to re program them. Sometimes it is labeled on the electrical panel which one is which. You could also see if you could remove the bottom plate and look for the incoming cable and test it there. It's a good Idea to turn off the circuit breaker then

I checked the circuit breaker, and I found the one labeled for the dishwasher and turned it off and on. Unfortunately, that didn't work, do you have another suggestion, I turned the dial all the way around, and you can see a faded light which comes on to let you know that the dishes are clean. That is all I see, when I turn the dial to normal wash, nothing happens. Please offer more suggestions.

Thank You

I would next look at the door switch. All the electricity to the machine goes through the door switch. It won't work if the switch is bad. I am not an expert on dishwashers so I can only tell you what I would do, and I would make sure the switch was working properly. Just because it locks doesn't mean it is working. there may be more than one switch. Can't find anything on that model#.
