Kenmore dishwasher model 665.13229N412 with 2 issues. #1 is the gasket for the detergent dispenser that fits into a spring-loaded cover came out and I want to put it back in the cover. #2 is the panel readout always goes to a cycle of 3 hours and 04 minutes. Is this normal?

Hello and thanks for using this service! If you are a JA Member I would like to personally thank you and welcome you back!

Secondly, I do not know your skill level so please try and let me know if I am going beyond your knowledge or comfort zone thanks! I strive for a 5 star rating from everyone especially our JA members.

Answer:

That gasket likely is not going to go back in place, if it came off it likely tore. You would have to get the dispenser assembly to fix that issue. Now the time should not always come up as 3 04 that is not correct and you may have a bad board on the unit if that always comes up no matter what you select.

All I ask is please use the Star Rating Link at the top of your page before leaving, that is the only way I am credited through the site, tips are appreciated.

The gasket is not torn. It looks brand new and intact. This is a Kenmore dishwasher. Is the board normally covered by a manufacturers warranty, or am I out of luck that I did not buy the extra-cost maintenance agreement?

The board is only covered for 1 year other than that you would have to buy the part...sorry!
