Hello, I have a Kitchen Aid (model # KUDMO1T JWHO) dishwasher that runs the motor in all cycles, with water fill & drain working fine, but the pump is not pumping water during any cycle, as the spinners and the inside of the washer are dry when I open the door, except for the water sitting in the bottom. Also, no normal swishing sound of water when the motor runs in any cycle. Looks to me like a mechanical break in the pump drive. How do I check the pump drive on this model? Do you have any

Kenmore dishwasher My Kenmore dishwasher model 630.16302401 is not successfully completing wash cycle. When I hit "normal" and turn it on, water enters the d/w, and the sprayers (both top and bottom), spray water. Approx. 10 mins. later, the water is drained. At that point, it appears that water never again enters the d/w to complete the wash cycle. In fact, the soap in the dispenser does get released, and the door opens.

My bosch dishwasher runs fine, cleans fine, drains fine....but after it has been just sitting for a while, the bottom very slowly fills up with water. Each time we run the machine the water level drains back to the normal amount in the bottom of the washer after the cycle is complete. The problem is if we are away for a few days, the bottom fills up and overflows onto the floor.

Kenmore Dishwasher My dishwasher fills with water and then stops. I hear the cycle timer continue all the way through the cycle. I pulled the screen off the bottom inside of the dishwaher and stuck my hand in the diswasher drain. Originally I felt and cleared what appeared to be a torn up rubber band. I feel a thin straight metal pin that I can rotate and I believe it causes the pump to rotate as well. Once I do that the dishwasher will run normally thorough a complete cycle...BUT I have to


If you have either dry bearings in the motor or sticky grease buildup in the pump bearing/seal, it can cause the motor to stick rather than rotate on startup. More likely to be greasy crud buildup. \015\012\015\012The best you can do without disasse ... Kenmore 24 in. 15149 Built-in Dishwasher

Maytag dishwasher model MDB7609AWW2 has a blinking clean light. I followed the advice on fixya (thankya!) and by alternating the normal and heated wash buttons I was able to return the lights to normal. However, once I tried to run a normal cycle, it didn't do anything other than fill and drain. I then ran the hot water faucet in the sink until hot and tried another new cycle, but no luck. Any advice is MUCH appreciated!

My WHirlpool dishwasher won't drain - basin is full of water. Machine starts and runs the drain cycle, but something is clogged. I opened up the bottom, and pulled off the drain hose to the disposal, and that had no water in it, so the clog is somewhere before the water gets to the hose. If I run the dishwasher drain cycle, it is not pumping water into the hose. What next?

Dishwasher keeps running I have a Bosche dishwasher and the water keeps running. As long as we run it and don't stop it, the pump will continue to drain about every 3 minutes. The water just keeps running though. If we open it to empty the dishes, the cycle will stop.
