Having problems with your Kenmore 24 in. 17482 / 17484 / 17489 Built-in Dishwasher ?

I have a Kenmore elite dishwasher. The agitators will not swish the water around. Any ideas what the problem may be?


Answers :

It appears your pump has failed in this instance... or the inlet strainer is clogged.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Hi, I have Kenmore ELite 630.1630 (made by Bosch).. a. can i get a repair manual? b. problem (just last few days.. there is a rough residue (seems like soap) left on all (glass and st. steel). This comes out if I scrub it under the sink with water. c. Tried the test cycle from Bosch website.. it ends up with a code H. Any idea what may be going on?


Hello,\015\012\015\012Welcome to FixYa,\015\012\015\012The "H" indicates a heating fault has been detected, and based on your post it is likely the heater relay in the control itself.\015\012\015\012Th ... Dishwashers

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 don't believe you have a screen at any water feed and doubt that would be the problem. Once the washer fills the pressure to the cleaning arms is provided by the pump itself. I have this issue every couple of months due to hard water and the calci ... Dishwashers

This is a past problem posted that I am now experiencing with my Kenmore Elite Model 655.17489300 dishwasher.

This problem is intermitten. Kenmore 665 16765690. starting the dishwasher, I hear a motor running. I think it is trying to empty water, however there isn't any water. I will turn the time rotor around to the start again. Sometimes, when I do this the motor running sound has stopped and I hear gurgling sound of water entering. Once this happens, the cycle is good and does well. However, there are times, rotation the timer back to the beginning may take several times, up to about 20 times.

I have a BOSCH 8280 dishwasher which at the end of its cycle still has soapy water in the bottom of the machine. The dishes, and especially the cutlery, are left smeared and looking unfinished. I lifted out and cleaned the filter in the floor of the machine but the water still doesn't drain away. Are there any other filters etc which may be causing the problem? Any ideas. Thanks.


There is a float, which controls water level, that caused this draining problem.\015\012\015\012Lift out the main filter assembly in the floor of the dishwasher. \015\012You can now see a small cover, positioned at the front right ... Bosch Dishwashers

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 UtraWash Dishwasher won't drain completely. We have checked the hoses (water supply and drain connected to the disposal) - both are free of obstructions. We have taken the whole thing apart but can't get the plastic cover off to access the motor or "garbage disposal thingy" inside the dishwasher. All of the bolts were taken out, but it was still firmly attached. Didn't want to force it and potentially make the problem worse. Any suggestions before I call Sears Repair people

My Kenmore Elite suddenly stopped filling with water. I pushed start but when I checked it hours later the soap dispenser door had opened, the soap is just lying in a puddle, and nothing is clean but the clean light on the front panel is blinking.

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
