I own a Kenmore Dishwasher Model 587.1418. The the control panel selections are made with a mechanical dial and a very flat touch pad buttons. Problem is, the control panel never worked correctly. Even after replacing the entire circuit board (Worked for 30 days then went back to old ways.) In order to get the unit to start, you have to play games a lot like with an old car that needs the door slammed twice before it will start:)
You have to turn the dial several times like a combination lock, try the other way, often takes up to twenty tries. My wife can't get it to go on at all now. Any advice.
