That model number is incomplete. Did you get it right off the appliance's model and serial number identification tag?Kenmore 665.13849 dishwasher
How long did you wait for it to finish? Some models have several 'thermal holds' during a wash cycle which will retard finishing of the cycle... but not for ever. If the control isn't properly detecting the wash water temperature, the wash cycle may be extended by several hours but not indefinitely.Kenmore dishwasher... continues to run thru it until I push 'cancel/drain.' When I open the door, dishes are clean & steam comes out.
Did you recheck all the connections to make sure they're tight and on the proper terminals?I replaced a dead control panel.
Either may be a possibility. I would have a tenancy to trust a new part (if truly new and not used, 'rebuilt' or from eBay) and recheck everything else first.Did I get a bad control panel, or do I have an additional problem?
BTW. If you bought the replacement part from Sears and it has an "R" in the part number, that part has been rebuilt.
