Having problems with your Kenmore Dishwashers ?

Trying to take apart a Kenmore Ultra Wash 665

\015 I've taken off the spray arm and cap (held in with 8 screws) and find a black plastic disk with a 1 inch ''nut shape'' held in by a metal screw. The disk rotates with the screw. Can anyone tell me if it's a 'righty-tighty' or vice-versa. sometimes spinning parts are done backward to keep the screw tight. Is there any other info I need to know about this dis-assembly?\015\012\015\012I'm trying to take it apart to clean the debris from the pump and grinder.\015

Thanks for the info. I bought a 15/16 crowfoot hex head for my wrench. Had to pound it onto the plastic nut, but that gave me the ability to hold the impeller without damaging it.

Dishwasher: Kenmore ultra wash sensor quiet guard plus. I'm in a rental so I don't have the manual or model number. A few days ago it just wouldn't start the wash cycle. When you press normal wash then start the no heat dry and lock lights flash every other second or so but nothing happens. I can hit the cancel button and it will make sounds like its trying to drain, and after about 5 minutes stops. I've done the heated wash/ no heat dry sequence to try to reset but no luck.

I have a Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher (Model Number 665.15634) that will not fill up properly. When I try to run a cycle (any cycle), the first thing the dishwasher should do is fill up with hot water. But in my case, my dishwasher fills for about 10 seconds, then stops. Then tries to fill again for about 7 seconds, then abruptly stops again. And this process goes on and on and on. The dishwasher never fully fills up nor starts the wash sequence properly. Once the dishwasher fills up, it

Kenmore Elite: - Stale smell from dishwasher, won't go away, lingers on dishes, glasses. I tried a vinegar remedy suggested by a diy site - it helps for a cycle or two, but the smell comes right back. Diy site suggested taking apart the dishwasher to see if there is food trapped: there always remains a little water at the end of each cycle - but I'm concerned about taking apart my dishwasher if there is another solution. Smell doesn't smell of food to me. What do you think? Hollie Smith

I have a Sears Kenmore Elite Ultra dishwasher 665.1315 model. For the last 3 weeks, it keeps having the clean light blinking 6 times pause then 1 blink and pause and repeats cycle again. I have turned off the breaker...I have reset by pressing the heated dry and normal wash until all lights are flashing. It then completes some type of cycle and looks ok.

Kenmore model 665.16509200 Does not clean very well and now dry cycle not working. Wash cycle takes almost 2 hours, and still dishes had gradoo and white detergent on them, even ones that were clean when they went in. The drying coil had plastic melted on it once before, so that could have caused that malfunction. I am not so concerned about that, it is the dirty dishes after 2 hours that is driving me nuts. The short wash cycle leaves EVERYTHING dirty, so I just quite even trying that.
