Having problems with your Kenmore 24 in. 15149 Built-in Dishwasher ?

Kenmore Dishwasher My dishwasher fills with water and then stops. I hear the cycle timer continue all the way through the cycle. I pulled the screen off the bottom inside of the dishwaher and stuck my hand in the diswasher drain. Originally I felt and cleared what appeared to be a torn up rubber band. I feel a thin straight metal pin that I can rotate and I believe it causes the pump to rotate as well. Once I do that the dishwasher will run normally thorough a complete cycle...BUT I have to


Answers :

If you have either dry bearings in the motor or sticky grease buildup in the pump bearing/seal, it can cause the motor to stick rather than rotate on startup. More likely to be greasy crud buildup. \015\012\015\012The best you can do without disassembling the entire unit is to circulate a good degreaser product in a wash cycle, such as 409 or PurplePower. \015\012\015\012On the off chance (very small chance) it would degrade plastic parts, only run degreaser wash cycle for 5 minutes or so before draining it and running rinse cycle.

I have a GE Potscrubber 720 and there is water in the bottom of the dishwasher and I tried to clear it by starting a cycle and it still keeps water in the bottom of the washer. When I run a cycle there is caked on soap on the inside door and dishes and the dishes are filthy. I found a long thin piece of metal by the drain it is long and straight and a break on one end and an "L" shaped bend on the other.. Any ideas where to start looking for problems?

My chef classic dishwasher is not completely cleaning the dishes. There is no obstruction to the tablet/powder door opening, although there is a small amount of powder left at the end of the cycle. Both top & bottom spray bars are clear & rotate, the water is heating & there appears to be plenty of water getting water into the machine. Drain filters are also clear.

LG LDF8812ST dishwasher not washing: reports LE error code. Fills and drains ok. Impeller is clear, removed inside housing - no obstructions. Synchronous motor works. Tested main motor - appears to be good. Motor is not locked, looks to be in excellent condition. No shorts to ground, continuity across three main pins - not sure what the other 4 are for. My guess would be the PCB, but not sure how to test this. How do I determine if the PCB is bad?

The upper rack side rail is loose where it attaches to the side wall of the dishwasher. It allows the upper rack to wobble. When the dishwasher is turned on, the force of the water pushes the rack forward so it detaches from the water supply and the arm does not rotate. The arm and connection are all clear and the arm is able to rotate, so those problems are not a factor. The wheels are in good condition. The left rail is a little loose; the right one is very loose. There must be a way t

Kenmore dishwasher. The upper rack is not getting clean. Even very light residue remains. And, detergent is left in door at end of cycle. The bottom is filling up, so I don't think it's the intake valve. Also, all the blade openings appear clear. I am noticing that hot water is not filling the dishwasher when I first run the cycle. Even if I have hot water running in the sink, the dishwasher fills with cold or warm water. So, I think this is the problem. What should I do? Thank you in advance!


I find it odd that the dishwasher is filling with cold water if the water is hot at the sink. It sounds like the dishwasher is connected to the cold water line rather than the hot. Check under your sink; if you've got standard plumbing, the dishwas ... Dishwashers

Our dishwasher, Model Automatic G572 SC runs, but does not drain. I have cleaned all the rotating sprayers, have made sure that the disposal is clear, and have checked the various parts in the base of the dishwasher. We had this problem a few years ago, but after letting the dishwasher sit for a few days, it corrected itself. I don't want to pay for the repair and heard that you can walk me through most simple problems. Help! Thanks.

Upper arm is clear, lower arm is clear. I also removed the lower cover, checked the chopper screen and inlet, no clogs. There is a screen inside that I cannot get to.

In replacing the float that senses water level on a Hobart AM 14 dishwasher, I see that the whole assembly is free to rotate after the c-clip is reinstalled. Past experience is that sometimes this plastic float will be found upside-down, on top of the probe which houses the reed switch & thermistor temperature sensor. What's to keep the float from rotating like this? Nothing appears to be broken or missing on the assembly from what I can see. THANKS!!!.......Lee
