Having problems with your Kenmore 24 in. 16032 Built-in Dishwasher ?

Can I use Liquid Plumber to clear the drain? - Kenmore 24 in. 16032 Built-in Dishwasher


Answers :

No don't do that ! take the plate off of the bottom of the dish washer, you will see the drain line, remove this line and the hard line screws out as well.( you will need a pair of pliers to do this ). Clear debris from the hard line and re-install hard line as well as drain line.
Before attempting this though make sure to remove the water from inside the dishwasher either with a shop vac or a cup, you will also have to have a small pan ready to catch the water with when removing the drain line.

I have a whirlpool DWH B10W. Last week the main drain outside blocked and none of my service machines were working (not draining). The main drain has now been unblocked and every machine except the dishwasher are now working fine. The plumber has checked the drainpipes again and says all are now clear. When I try to use the dishwasher, after the initial drain it stops and starts beeping at me. I have also noticed that no water is going into the machine. What's happening?

Our kitchen drain clogged recently and water drained back into our VUD141 dishwasher. A plumber cleared the drain, and turned on the DW - which pumped out the standing water. But now, we have no water flowing into the dishwasher. The drain pumps, the heater works, but there's no water supply. The plumber who cleared the drain said he didn't DO dishwashers, and I cannot locate the owner's manual since we prepared for a move.

I have a Kenmore built in dishwasher. Serial Number 15989990 Model 665. My dishes are not getting clean. Lots of residue on glasses on top rack and dishes streaked. Any ideas? We thought it might be the soap we are using which is the liquid variety. We always in the past have used powdered cascade. However, I believe the problem is other than the soap issue.

My mother has cancer so needs me to research her problem with her dishwasher. My mother's sink drain water is emptying into the dishwasher. It has to be manually removed since she does not cook much and therefore no longer uses the dishwasher as much as she used to. Is there anything I can do without calling a repair man or plumber? And if I must call a repair man, which should I call, a Maytag repair man or a plumber?

I need to winterize the built-in Kenmore dishwasher in a mountain cabin where winter temperatures will drop below freezing. The unit is at least 10-15 years old, but I don't have the model number handy. My approach to the cabin water pipes in general will be to gravity-drain them and then blow out remaining water by adding and releasing air pressure. RV antifreeze will go into all P-traps. When it comes to the dishwasher, my plan is to remove the drain hose from the P-trap and drain it as mu

My tappan dishwasher is only 1 1/2 yr old and its not getting at least 1/2 of dishes clean. We have tried everything from changing to liquid soap, increasing water pressure at meter, not using while washing clothes. We used a dishwasher cleaner to remove calcium, and run hot water in sink before using. We know the wand, pump and drain are working. It is model TDB210RFB5 with 1.1A motor. Is the motor too small to clean dishes? I wish I could get my money back or exchange for an upgrade. Thanks!

I have a dishwasher that hasn't been draining properly. For a while I could hit cancel drain cycle again and it would clear 1/2-1 of water out. But now that doesn't always do it. Someone told me to take filter out and see if it needs to be cleaned. Otherwise we have no other sink/plumbing problems with other kitchen areas.

I have a Kenmore Elite dishwasher (2004) and recently it has been leaking internally at a very slow pace. When not in use it will slowly fill until the floor of the unit is filled and then leak onto the kitchen floor unless we press the drain button and then it drains completely. The water seems to be coming from the front of the washer, potentially from the door itself. The amount of leakage is barely discernible but will fill over the course of a 24 hour period.
