Having problems with your Kenmore 15912 Built-in Dishwasher ?

Dishwasher backing up

\015 I just put my dishwasher on, and 10 minutes later my kitchen was flooded. The water doesn't drain.\015

Answers :

Sound like you have a few things going on there.there is a float switch which is located at the front right side of dish washer, make sure this floats freely . also sounds as through your drain line may have become plugged. Ease to fix , remove the line and hard line from the pump with a set of plyers. and remove the debris from the diaphram within the hard line.. before starting this be sure to remove as much water from within the dishwash, easiest way is to use a shop vac.

Hi In the middle of a wash cycle, my dishwasher tripped the circuit breaker on the wall. I diagnosed this by unpluggin dishwasher, plugging in a different appliance and switching circuit breaker back on. new appliance worked OK. When dishwasher had cooled, I tried it again on same circuit (which I knew was working properly). The lights came on for about three seconds, and then the circuit breaker cut back in again, so I knew it was the dishwasher that was causing the problem. Is there anyt

My dishwasher came with styrofoam placed between the top and the inside , a foam sheet and cardboard screwed to the back. Is this the packaging and does it need to be removed before installation? The picture in the instruction manual does not advise you to unscrew the back packaging. Even though I attempted to remove the foam sheet it is stuck under the sides at the back of the dishwasher.

I recently had the e4 error code on my new world dw60 dishwasher. I have since opened it up and replaced the heater element, which appears to have resolved that issue. However, in the process of doing this I incorrectly installed the flood switch back into place, meaning that it was in its closed position (i.e. the position it would be when activated by a flooded base) when I went to turn the dishwasher back on. I have since opened it back up and correctly installed the flood switch, but I ca

I have a Triton dishwasher. Last cycle, it completed washing then started drying and started beeping and the drying light is flashing. When I finally opened the latch, the beeping stopped, but the drying light is still flashing. The dishes were clean and warm - they air dried the rest of the way. I have not been able to get the drying light to go off. I have turned the breaker off over night, and flipped back on. The dishwasher goes back to flashing washing, and then clicks to drying and th

Hello, we have a Frigidaire dishwasher Model# FDB1250REC2. There was all kinds of junk down in the lower filter area and when I tried to remove the parts they all came out together and then fell apart. I need to see how the parts go back together, because I thought I had them in there correctly, but when I opened up the dishwasher after running it the water sprayer was laying on the heating element. Could you please help me get it back together right? Thank you

In between wash cycles, water seems to back up into the dishwasher. I had a plumber take a look at the drain and disposal in the kitchen sink to see if there was an issue there. He suggested to have appliance repair tech to come look and indicated that he believed that the issue may be the "cylianoid" valve. Does the this valve prevent water from backing up into the dishwasher after it has drained?

Hello! I have a Kenmore Dishwasher Model # 665.15805890. The dishwasher came with the house and I'm guessing it is around 10 years old. My toddler was having a great time flipping the door to the soap dispenser back and forth until he pulled the door off of the pin. Now, I can't seem to position the spring in a way so that the door will spring back. I never looked closely at the hinge before, so I don't know if that is the only reason the door will not release the detergent, or if something

I have mold in my dishwasher. This happened about 6 mos ago and I used the vinegar and scrub method to get rid of it...it was a pain in the fanny! Now the mold is back...the dishwasher has also not been drying the dishes very well either, although in truth it never has. There must be some other reason that the mold is back! Oh, and I've used Jet Dry since I bought the machine 7 years ago, and have tried the ''leave the door open to dry the dishes'' .... any thoughts?

We lost electricity very briefly today which caused the dishwasher, washing, drying, clean buttons to blink when the electricity came back on. I opened the door to do a load of dishes hours after the electricity came back on and the basin was filled with water which caused water to spill out of the dishwasher. The basin was empty last night when we used it. It seemed to fill up when it was not running.

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 Fisher and Paykel drawer dishwasher and I'm wondering if there's a way to put a panel on it to make it look like and integrated dishwasher. It would need some way of the panel moving to start the dishwasher because the controls are located on the front. I plan on putting it in an Ikea Akurum that is 24" deep. The dishwasher is 22-9/10 deep, so that looks like it would leave some space for the dishwasher to sit back in the cabinet so the door panel could be flush with the cabinet. I'm no
