2 dishwasher touchpad buttons not responding
« on: March 03, 2009, 04:59:32 PM »


We have a Kenmore 665.15829000 dishwasher with a faulty touchpad. The problem is that all of the buttons seem to work fine with the exception of the air/lock and start buttons. I understand I can replace the circuit board with this part ( and am prepared to do so but I want to make sure that this is the likely culprit.

My biggest concern is that the touch pads for those buttons are just not contacting. Is this very likely? If so I haven't seen any reference to replacing just the buttons.

Any input is appreciated.

Model 665.15829000

I'd replace the touchpad and control panel first, but that's just me. The part is shown below, and the tech sheet is also provided below in case you want to check things out.
