Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

We use our dishwasher daily. However, we have noticed when we have not used it over a series of days water is gathering in the bottom of the dishwasher and leaks onto the floor. We are able to drain the water by pushing the drain button on the front of the dishwasher. Any suggestions for issue/repair? The dishwasher is a Kenmore.

Hello, Welcome to FixYa ! \015\012 \015\012The problem you're experiencing based on your description sounds like (unfortunately) a common one. \015\012 \015\012The water inlet valve can be an issue with dishwasher's if they fail in the open position or some debris is holding it open slightly within the valve body, hence allowing water to gradually fill it and overflow. \015\012 \015\012It'll need to be replaced likely, but you can try to fix it.\015\012 \015\012You can remove the water line and remove the valve and try to clean it out...it's usually futile, but worth a try. \015\012 \015\012Unfortunately I've seen some pretty serious damage over the years in extreme cases when left unchecked for several days...or longer. \015\012 \015\012You may want to call in a pro however, the part to repair it is available at most brick & mortar appliance part centers or you can check out on-line vendors such as "repairclinic.com" "searspartsdirect.com"\015\012or "apwagner.com" etc. Do a search by typing in your actual model number and you should find it. \015\012 \015\012Hope that helps move you forward. Let me know if I you need help on how to change it etc. \015\012 \015\012**It's relatively easy with Whirlpool built Kenmore or any other for that matter. First Turn off the power, the water, safety first...access is gained through the kick plate/toe panel below the door.** \015\012 \015\012The valve will be on the left and involves only removing 2 screws, the water line in & out and 2 wires which go on either way...they aren't polarity specific. \015\012 \015\012Should resemble this image...\015\012 \015\01209ade06.jpg\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012Thanks for coming to "FixYa" for your inquiries. Let me know how you make out or if you require further assistance.\015\012 \015\012Good luck. \015\012 \015\012macmarkus :)

My Kenmore ultra wash dishwasher fills with a little bit of water but does not spray water and does not proceed through the wash cycle. Any advice? We had problems yesterday with blinking lights and not able to get anything to work except the drain. then we followed a sequence of pushing buttons and it solved the first problem.


The spray arm rotates based on the water pressure coming out of them. If no water pressure, then no rotation. You probably have a clog on the intake hose. You can pull out the dishwasher, tip it forward so you can get to the bottom and then rem ... Kenmore Dishwashers

My Kenmore Elite dishwasher did not drain the water out of the bottom after the dishes were washed last night.

Whirlpool Quiet Wash Plus dishwasher Model DU920PFGZ3. Worked fine until I replaced the insinkerator and forgot to punch the drain plug leaving water standing on the bottom of the machine. I punched the drain opening, and pushed the cancel/drain cycle button. It drained fine but since no water comes from the spray arms. I have removed the arm all the way down..NOTHING!! Some research indicated it could be the water inlet valve. When the buttons are pushed, it cycles but no spray or water.
