Customer Question
My Kenmore Elite dishwasher...

My Kenmore Elite dishwasher has been stopping only minutes after trying to run it and displaying the message: "Washing///Add a Dish".

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Kenmore is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

We purchased it about 2 years ago. I'm not sure which number is ***** Model # but i think its 665.12793K311

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

My husband is pretty handy and probably could.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Not really. I just dont know why it stops
