Kenmore built in dishwasher turns on, but no water comes out.

\015 I have a Kenmore Model # 665.17703403, about 8 years old. Until now has worked good, but now, the washer turns on, but no water comes out. \015\012\015\012Can you help?\015

Answers :

At the back of the unit where the water comes in, there is a electrical coil and valve. Turn off the water, should be under your sink and unplug the dishwasher. Pull it out and if you can take the water line loose 4 screws i believe, there is a screen there to catch the hard water sediment. Clean this out, put it together, turn the water back on and check for leaks at that fitting.Plug it in with the unit still pulled out and turn it on fill. Listen to see if you hear the small coil at the water inlet you just worked on energize when you turn it on. If it starts to fill your good. If the coil does not energize and no water, then I would say the coil is bad. Very easy to remove. 2 wires and a green ground wire and i believe the coil and valve are one piece. Take it down to your appliance store along with name of unit, model, serial, and product number if it has one and buy one. They are inexpensive. I hope I have been of some help to you. Always make sure the power is off when working on it unless you are hearing to see if the coil is energizing.
Good Luck, Shastalaker7
Either its the water control solenoid valve that has lost power from water temp selector, or the water hose inlet screens are plugged, highly unlikely being you say no water

I need to winterize the built-in Kenmore dishwasher in a mountain cabin where winter temperatures will drop below freezing. The unit is at least 10-15 years old, but I don't have the model number handy. My approach to the cabin water pipes in general will be to gravity-drain them and then blow out remaining water by adding and releasing air pressure. RV antifreeze will go into all P-traps. When it comes to the dishwasher, my plan is to remove the drain hose from the P-trap and drain it as mu

We have a built in GE dishwasher. It has worked fine for about 4 years but now the glasses in the top rack will not come clean. I have cleaned all the holes where the water comes out but I think the sprayer that is beneath the top rack (the one that is attached to the bottom of the top rack) is not rotating. We had someone out to take a look at it and they said it was fine. It isn't fine as it is not cleaning the dishes. Is there a reason that the bottom sprayer is not turning?

I have a Kenmore dishwasher model 66574362K2. It has worked fine until tonight. I opened the door before the end of a cycle, closed the door, and pushed the cancel drain button.

I was replacing my sink faucet today and in the process turned the water off to the dishwasher. Subsequently my girlfriend ran the dishwasher without the water on! Now when I go to run the dishwasher no water comes out (meanwhile I've turned the water to the dishwasher back on). Is there some kind of reset? I accidently touched the coil in the bottom of the dishwasher just after trying to run it and it was hot. What do you recommend? Thanks. Mark

I have a Whirlpool dishwasher model number DU1055XTPQ4 that is not cleaning the dishes. When the dishwasher is working, the bottem arm is turning and water comes out the holes.

Model #363.14232100 dishwasher. When you turn the switch to on, it will not come on. If you keep turning the knob slowly you can hear the dishwasher trying to start up,but it doesn't. Keep turning the knob and its the same thing, sounds like it will start, but it doesn't. It did fill with water, but once it was opened it didn't start up where it left off. The lock switch was in position, and still nothing. Now I have water in the bottom but can't get the thing to come on. Any suggestions? Help!

My Whirlpool Dishwasher ADP931 has stopped working. It stopped in the middle of the cycle with 2 to 3 inches of water on the floor of the compartment. I mopped out the water and tried to restart the dishwasher.
