Having problems with your Kenmore 15121 Built-in Dishwasher ?

Hi, I have a Kenmore Dishwasher with a soil separator. I have food particles on my dishes after every load. No idea what I need to do. I suspect I have to clean the soil separator somehow.... but don't know where to start. I've taken screws out of everything and can't seem to figure out how to access where the food blockage would be. Any help would be appreciated.

My kenmore 665.13719k601 fills with water when I turn it on, but then just makes a humming sound, not moving the arms around. It drains fine when I hit cancel. I presume that means the motor is broken down inside? I've taken apart everything I can down to the food mincer, but I can't get past that. How would I proceed here?

I brought a Buffalo WHR-G300N Wireless N Router, did all the login screen thing, connected all the cables correctly and everything.. but I can't load the IP Address ( 196.182.11.1 .. Not sure if thats exactly right) but anyway, it wont load.. so I cant configure the router to connect to my laptop, which has wireless network enability so, i have no idea what to do, any suggestions? Any help would be greatly appreciated!


If you are using the router as an Access Point, 192.168.11.1 wont work unless it is in Router Mode. You should find out LAN IP for the G300N, and use that to access it with username "root"and nothing for the password.\015\012\015\012192.1 ... Dishwashers

I have the E3 error on my Smeg DWI614 dishwasher which would indicate a heater error, however it is heating the water in the bottom of the machine but it seems to time out. The main issue seems to be that the recirc. pump is not running during the heating phase. I have taken the pump out, checked the connections etc. twice now and everything seems fine (the motor runs when tested). When I have done this (both times) the dishwasher has started again and run for 20+ cycles fine, then the issue com

I am having trouble attaching 90 degree brass elbow to the plastic water inlet on my new Maytag Dishwasher. Getting leaks. Teflon tape hasn't worked. Cant seem to get the washer to seat properly when everything is tightened down. Wish the water inlet was not made of plastic. It appears it would seat the gasket properly if the water inlet was made of something more durable.

I have a model 5000g. it might have 15 hrs. total running time on it. when i tried to use it last it would not build pressure. i took the pump apart and cleaned and regreased it. everything looked good. ive got good pressure to the pump but just a small spray out the wand. when running there is no real load on the engine. it has always been kept inside in a warm enviorment.

This thing has never drained properly. You have to hit the cancel/drain button a few times for it to finally drain. I don't think it drains completely after wash and before rinse because everything comes out covered in particles that weren't there going in. We've checked the hose, and for stuck food with no luck. There aren't many dishwasher repairmen in my area and I'm at the point it's just a giant drying rack while I hand wash. Any advice would be welcome!

I have had this dishwasher for almost 4 years. It used to do a great job but last few months it has been doing a really poor job. Leaving food on dishes and also a film on them. I have taken everything apart and cleaned it good. I have tried different detergents, ran several diswasher cleaners in the machine. Even ran vinager in it because thats what i do for my coffee pot when it needs cleaning and it works great. We have very hard water here so I thought that could be the problem. Its frustrat

Hi, I have a KitchenAid Superba diswasher model #KUDSO1FLSS2 that has quit working.

It became more frequent until two days ago when the dishwasher stopped mid cycle and flashed PF. When I opened and closed the door, everything went dead and the dishwasher no longer works. It acts like it has no power coming into it. I checked the breakers and the wires connecting the power into the dishwasher. No luck. I replaced the control panel, but not the control board. It did

Hi, our new home us the KUDP02CR Built-in and we have two issues: 1) dishes on top and bottom are coming out dirty; unless we scrub very food particle of dishes and cutlery they just won't come out clean. Either food is baked on or cutlery/glasses/plates have a cloudy residue 2) the soap dispenser doesn't always open; we've tried cleaning it ourselves but to no avail. Sometimes it opens, sometimes it leaks out the liquid and other times it's still shut . Any help would be great. We've tried

There is no unusual beeping but there is however a weird motor noise that just appeared. Dishwasher appears to run through the cycles but most of the time there is still traces of food left behind.

We have a 12 year old kitchen aid diswasher model kudpo1ilbs2. It is not cleaning the dishes. Everything is loaded correctly and the proper cycle and soap is being used. We have had no problems until the last 2 - 3 months when a greasy food film is now appearing on the dishes. Some food is left on but not a great deal. The question is what could be wrong and what kind of cost are we talking? We are trying to make an informed decision as to whether fix or buy new. Thank you in advance

Top rack of dishwasher seems to deposit particles of food on to glasses so not only are they dirty at the end of the cycle, the pieces of food particles are difficult to scrub off them. This happens with all loads of dishes, regardless of whether they are unsoiled or soiled.

We checked both the Owner's Manual and the Service Manual and none of the troubleshooting suggestions appear to be relevant to our problem.

Does not get dishes etc. clean no matter how loaded. Must pre-wash by hand to get all food off or will not come out clean. Why have a dish washer? Is there any secret to how to get it to clean? Or do we give up on this thing and replace it. Only 3 years old. Any recommendations? We assummed the newer dishwashers would not need pre-rinse by hand but would clean.
