Having problems with your Kenmore 15899 Built-in Dishwasher ?

My Kenmore Ultra Wash model 665 Dishwasher stopped working. It won't turn on and some water in the bottom won't drain although there is no sign of a clog, and it's not unplugged.


Answers :

It is supposed to be hardwired and not plugged in. In which case it could have thrown a breaker and you would not know it unless you used a test light, or reset all the breakers (often you can't visually tell when a breaker it tripped).
There may also a reset on the motor itself that you need to push.

Dishlex Global 310 model. My dishwasher has water sitting on the bottom of it and it wont drain. I noticed it after I did a cycle of dirty dishes and the 'fast' light was flashing when I went to open it. Which shouldnt have been because it was on a normal wash. The water has been sitting at the bottom for 2 days now and still wont drain! I've taken out all the parts on the bottom which come out and cleaned them. Still no change however.

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?


The clog could be in the hose,or on up in the mouth of the drain,air pressure might dislodge the clog,or dissasible of the drain pan in the machine. ... Dishwashers

We just installed a Fisher & Paykel DD603 dishwasher. Intially it would not drain correctly. And, proceeded to flood the bottom and set off the F1 error code. I dried out the bottom to get the F1 code to stop, which it did. After adjusting the leveling the dishwasher drained both drawers correctly, once. A few minutes after the rinse cycle had finished and the drawers were empty of water the F1 code started again. Now it will not go away unless I unplug the machine. I dried out the bottom very w

Two drawer dish washer ... Both drawers drain fine when operated individually but the top drawer will not drain fully if the bottom drawer is operated at the same time (bottom drawer drains fine in these conditions). I am guessing that this is a setting issue rather than a clog, but what is the mechanism that is tripped when both drawers are cleaning? Perhaps a mother board issue?

Kitchen Aid Dishwasher KUDR24SEBLO does not drain 100%. I have removed the drain hose and chcked the sink P-Trap, [it drains thru the garbage disposer]. Unit is 10 years old, otherwise works fine.

I have a Kitchen Aid KUDS03CTSS3 dishwasher. Dirty water is staying at the bottom and nothing comes out the drain hose during the entire cycle. The drain hose is looped above the kitchen P-trap, although for a time it wasn't. I use a wet vac to get the water out but there is still water below the fine filter. I thought if I could get the fine filter off, I could clean out the bottom as I think that it's full of crud down there that may be blocking things. I can't figure out how to get the l

Magic Chef DU4K is not draining all the water. There's at least a gallon of water standing in the bottom. I have cleaned the air gap assembly and drain line completely. They were even sanitized in hot water. I do not hear the water draining like it use to. When it worked properly you could always hear water draining into the GD. Now I can hear any draining. Again, there is no clogging anywhere in the drain line assembly. Is it a bad pump. I don't know where to go next with this.

My dishwasher skips the final drain cycle. The lines are all clean and there is no clog. It drains just fine in the beginning of the wash cycle. Every time I do a load of dishes I have to run the full cycle, then leave the machine open for 3-4 hours and start the cycle again and listen for the drain at the beginning of the wash to drain the machine from the initial wash and stop the machine after it is done draining so it won't fill up again. Sometimes we have to unplug it and wait about an hour

My SGS55M72AU/65 does not get rid of its drain water, although that wee pump in the bottom is clearly working (which I could see after removing filters and pump cover).
