Having problems with your Kenmore 24 in. 16539 Built-in Dishwasher ?

This is a past problem posted that I am now experiencing with my Kenmore Elite Model 655.17489300 dishwasher. Looking for any suggested solutions, Rick Past Problem: I have the same problem with my 2004 Ultra Wash Model 665...fills with water, sensing light comes, then stops for a second.

Answers :

The symptoms you have mentioned could be linked to the soil sensor which some models come with. The purpose is to run the drain pump and let more water flow through inlet valve if during wash cycle the dishwasher detects soil collection in the accumulator (the area under the wash arms) .

\015\012The another pump you mention kick in is the drain pump trying to empty the gunk which the sensor is telling it. It may be a matter of replacing the sensor which might be faulty. I cannot locate the parts for your model but the closest I can come to is like this. The sensor will be mounted on the pump assembly.

This model uses a seperate drain pump to remove the water and i thik thats what you hear when it stops and hums so either the pump is bad and won't always go or the control is stuck in its program . i would ck or repl the drain pump first and then the main control .. mm

I have an Electrolux EIDW 6105GB1. The washer fills with water then immediatly drains back out, the lights all flash and the trouble code light under the kick panel indicates the wash pump. It has done this before and I took the pump out and checked it with power direct, then returned it to the main control board plug and it was working and pulsing it's speed as it should. It worked fine for several weeks and now it's doing it again. Is it possible that there's a problem with the water float ins

We have a Bosch Model SKT5102GB/07 and the problem is as follows; we load the dirty washing and start the washing process, the machine then goes through the full cycle of wash. Once finished you open the door and notice that the washing is still dirty and a large pool of water is laying in the bottom of the machine. We have had an independent engineer look at the machine and he has advised that the pump needs changing. Look forward to your reply, thank you. Regards Michael Ballard.

I have a Kenmore dishwasher model #665.13842K601. The problem that it has is that it does not seem to be pumping the water around the tub after it fills. It will fill and drain fine but will not wash. I have removed the spray arms and checked all the parts that I can get to from the inside but fear that it may be a pump or jammed impeller. it does make a faint buzzing sound when it should be operating. Any input would be great. Thanks, Matt

My Maytag PDB3600AWX isn't working. The motor hums as if its working but no water is in the tub. I did put a pitcher of water in the tub to see if it would pump out and it does.

When dishwasher is turned on to the cycle mode - it fills with water - heater heats water to the proper temp - pump starts - washer goes through it's complete cycle - even pumping out the wash water and the drying cycle,then shuts down. the problem is that it does not circulate the wash water thru. the spray heads-even though the circ,pump is running.Even though the unit is 8 yrs.old and hasn't run for 6 yrs,my wife&i do our dishes by hand. our unit is a GU1200XTKB0 Serial# FL4617501

I have a Kenmore Dishwasher Model #665.168790000 and the water fills just fine and empties fine when cancelling cycle but when pressing any wash cycle the pump/motor just makes a loud humming noise and does nothing. I took apoart the lower assemblies to clean everything out but the problem hasn't gone away. Do I need to replace the motor or the whole motor assembly (also contains impeller kit)??? Also, I don't think I need to replace the whole sump & motor assembly do I???

I have the GE Quiet Power 3 Model gld4400n10bb. When I start a wash I can hear it fill with water (to about 1/2 inch below the heating element). It then waits for about 5-7 minutes and pumps the water out. It fills again several times and pumps out. It doesn't sound like it is washing though. The whole interior of the dishwasher is covered with dried soap. I can also tell that water is not spraying around the whole interior. Any ideas?
