Having problems with your Kenmore 13742 / 13744 / 13749 Built-in Dishwasher ?

The pump is running, but the water is not flowing as you might expect. I believe the pump may have debri somewhere, and I would like to clean it out, but can not remove the lower arm. It has a flat plastic wing nut, that I do not not want to break off.

GLD4050 DW won't pump out at any time during wash cycle. Removed lower arm, screen, etc. and washed and cleaned out everything. Removed drain hose and cleaned it out. Reinstalled and ran again. At no time during he cycle does the water pump out. HOWEVER, if I put my hand on the drain pump I can feel and hear the pump running as usual at the right times in the cycle. What else could be preventing the pump out? Thanks!


You could have a plugged pump itself or broken propellers as long as drain and screen are clean which looks like you already took care of that. ... Frigidaire GLD4050RHS Builtin Dishwasher

DD603 upper drawer pump rotor will not turn - F2 error. Was completely siezed. Removed rotor and got the shaft to turn with pliers. However it does not spin freely and still shows an F2 error. Does anyone have a repair manual so I can figure out how to remove the pump? Lower drawer had an F1 error (due to the upper leaking/F2 error) and this website helped me fix that problem.


Maybe you dont have to remove anything else.. try the rotor from the bottom drawer first. If this works just buy a new rotor.. ... Fisher and Paykel 23 in. DD-603SS Built-in Dishwasher

I have a frigidaire dishwasher - model number PLDB998AC1. There are two spray arms in this dishwasher - lower and upper. The lower works fine but the upper spray arms are not spinning. There is what I think adequate water pressure coming in from the top but no movement on the upper spray arm. Here is what I know: 1) The water pressure and spray arms alternate between top and bottom. 2) The upper spray arm moves freely when I push it gently. 3) I have removed the pump and cleaned out an

I have a Kenmore model 665.15835791 dishwasher. I suspect that some plastic packaging has clogged the pump.

The note by FixAllPhil entitled "Poor cleaning or noisy pump on Whirlpool or Kenmore dishwasher" has a significant error. The first step should be to "Remove the lower wash arm (1) by turning the nut CLOCKWISE (right)". I damaged the threads on my dishwasher nut by trying to turn it counterclockwise. Once that error is corrected, please remove this post.

DISHWASHER NOISE I HAVE A HOTPOINT DISHWASHER MODEL HDA3420Z02BB SERIAL # TT813162Y. IT IS ABOUT 10 YEARS OLD AND JUST TONIGHT DEVELOPED A CLICKING/ GRINDING NOISE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE DISHWASHER.

My kenmore 665 dishwasher will not pump water to the lower and upper spinner arms. The pump entry screen assy seems to have one tear in it and is dirty. However water does come out if I take off the lower arm assy. Is this a sign that the pump is bad and is not pumping enough water to move the arms or is there another problem?


The pump is probably defective (low pressure). Enough to spin the bottom but not the top. ... Kenmore Dishwashers
