Kenmore DW dead; I've replaced just about everything!
Model Number: 665.1702240 Brand:
1 - 5 years
Now here's one that may stump you... though I hope not!
Our Kenmore DW, model 665.1702240, died completely about 8 months ago -- no lights or response at all. Reading various forums for advice (including this one), I did the following, in this order:
Checked circuit breaker / power to DW;
Replaced front panel;
Replaced control board;
Replace thermal fuse (even though it tested fine);
Replaced switches, and checked their physical operation
By that point, into it almost $300 (and getting sick of hand-washing my dishes) I finally opened the electrical box under the DW, and discovered that the ground wire was not attached. Eureka! I thought... but, after attaching it.... nothing. Still completely dead. No lights, no sound, no motion, nada.
What's left? Is this being caused by sun spots??
At wit's end,
