Having problems with your Kenmore Dishwashers ?

Kenmore 665 dishwasher is making a humming noise & won't spray.

\015 Kenmore 665.16872000\015\012 I select any setting on the keypad for a wash cycle. It goes through a sensing phase, pauses, then water fills up, then pauses. when it tries to go into the spray cycle all I get is a loud humming/buzzing noise. It will not go any further than this. I then press cancel and it drains the dishwasher with no problems. My wife said a glass broke during one of the cycles a week or so before this problem started. I totally cleaned out the inside of the dishwasher, removed a couple shards of glass, but the problem still exists. Fills fine, Drains fine, won't run a wash cycle. Was wondering where to go from here? thx.\015

My Kenmore Elite dishwasher (model 665.17462300) is not spraying the water from the basin in the bottom up through the rest of the dishwasher. The basin fills with water, then just makes a humming noise and appears to splash a little of the water around the very bottom of the dishwasher. When we cancel the cycle, it does drain out the water from the basin. I cleaned all the gunk and debris out of the basin in the bottom, but it didn't make any difference.

Kenmore (Whirlpool) 655 1589910 Dishwasher. Fills with water, motor makes horrible noise (buzzing / loud hum). Dishes do not wash and there is no evidence that any water pumped up to the spray arms. Spray arms are not clogged. We have a fully functioning water softener so it is not a hard water issue. Unit does drain normally. Either filter is badly clogged or pump is bad.

Made funny noise; stopped to investigate; then wouldn't restart; followed directions below from FixYa and restarted.
