I have a Kenmore Elite dishwasher (model 665.1315), and the dishwasher will run through the wash cycle as expected, but when it gets to the heated dry cycle , it doesn't appear to dry. It will then flash a fault code 81 (8 short flashes of the 'clean' light, pause, and then 1 more short flash of the 'clean' light, longer pause, and repeat the code). The dishes seem to be somewhat dry, but there is certainly water on the dishes and on the tub (there is never any water standing in the tub, and t

When you say they are not clean do you mean they have a white film on them? if so it is your water actually and not your dishwasher. there is a product designed specifically for this problem. it filters the water going into your dishwasher. ... Tappan 18 in. MDR251RE Built-in Dishwasher

My Kenmore Elite dishwasher did not drain the water out of the bottom after the dishes were washed last night. Could I possibly have pushed a wrong button to keep it from draining, or do I have a problem? All the dishes were clean. Should I run it through another wash cycle? I've got water standing in the bottom of my dishwasher.


Yes , If the program controller has hung it would have skipped the drain cycle. So try to redo the cycle and see if the drain works, is not check the program controller and the drain valve/pump.- if there is food particles that have clogged and block ... Kenmore Dishwashers

My Kenmore Elite model # 630.16302402 dishwasher isn't getting the dishes clean. A lot of food is still on the dishes after cleaning, especially inside the glasses. There is a white film on glasses and the inside of the appliance. I also just noticed that the upper arm isn't turning. There is about 1/2 cup of water standing in the drain area (not visible until removing the filter tray at the bottom of the appliance). Is this normal? The obvious problem is the upper arm but it seems like the rin

My kenmore elite - model 8525879 is not getting dishes clean even with pre-rinse by hand. It is also leaving soap scum on glasses that is so bad, I had to hand wash my glasses with a brillo pad to remove the scum. The inside of the dishwasher is also covered with a white scum. The dishwasher is new. Not even a year old. I am using liquid detergent and rinse aid.

Have a Kenmore Elite Dishwasher (66513123K701). Was not cleaning dishes very well so we ran diagnostics on it and found a problem with the diverter motor (W10155344) so we replaced it. Now, the dishwasher is leaking from the diverter. There was a o-ring from the original diverter that we had to keep since the new motor did not come with it. Wondering if we should get a new o-ring/seal, but I cannot find mention of such a part anywhere. Is there a certain way to seat the o-ring? Is it ok to

My 6 year old Kenmore Elite DW has started leaking and has a musty smell. The dishes are clean but food residue is left on the inside door and black gunk builds up on the bottom of the dishwasher.


Use a wet/dry shop vac to clean out the strainer and drain from the inside of your machine. A musty smell is a sure sign that food particles have clogged your drain BUT can also mean that your wash/spray heads have become clogged as well. Use a pipe ...

My dishwasher (Kenmore Elite 665) doesn't use up all the detergent in the detergent cup - it always leaves a little behind at the end of the cycle. the dishes don't get quite as clean any more, either. I recently replaced my old water heater - we were getting lots of little plastic pieces in our faucet screens. I'm guessing that the water pressure may be low, and that it may be due to the same problem. Is there a screen-type filter that filters the incoming water, before it enters th

I have a three-year-old Sears Kenmore Elite dishwasher. I find that despite the fact that we scrape and rinse our dishes before loading the machine, after each three months of use (two loads a day) or so, I have to take the machine apart (spray tower, racks, bottom impeller, bottom screen housing, food grinder cover) and clean-out the food grinder area, for it fills-up with sludge. The sludge restricts the water flow and there isn't enough flow to turn the impellers via that steering jets.

My Kenmore dishwasher, about 5 years old, is not cleaning well any more. Glasses look cloudy,and I assume the bowls and plates are not clean also, but that's harder to detect unless I hold them up to light. I use a rinse agent. What's the problem? Is it worth having a service person look at it or should I just get a new one? It's a Kenmore Elite ultra wash dishwasher.
