My Kenmore Dishwasher stopped in mid-cycle, has water in tub and will not restart.  There are two minus signs where the numbers should be for the time remaining.

 

I have tried putting it into diagnostics mode, but all the lights come on & the number 88 shows on the display, but it never does anything else.

 

I replaced the door switch, thinking that might be the problem, but it is a still a no go.

 

Any ideas what could be wrong?  Thanks!!!!

Hi Sensei,

 

Thank you for answering me so promptly!

 

Sears had talked me into getting the control panel last week before I posted my question (NEVER AGAIN will I buy from them!) and it finally came in today.  

 

When I went to put the control panel in, the plug with the brown wire had burned and fused to the old panel, so when I pulled the plug off the old panel, the tab on the panel stayed in the plug.  I took needle nose pliers and pulled the tab out and connected it to the new control panel and it will run, but I am afraid of what the brown wire controls! (The plug was singed pretty good, but not melted beyond use!)

 

Any idea what that brown wire goes to? (pump. heating element, motor?)  I just don't want to burn my house down with this twelve year old dishwasher!!!!

 

I am so glad to find this site.  Will know where to buy parts from now on!
