Having problems with your Kenmore Dishwashers ?

Our Dishwasher drains sometimes but not all the time

\015 Our dishwasher will run 4 or five times well and then suddenly quits draining. When we push cancel no light comes on and it doesn't seem to work. So we are confused if it is electrical or the pump.\015

Answers :

Most likely the problem is a foreign object inside the drain hose. Disconnect the drain hose from the air gap (on top of the sink), put it in a bucket and run the drain cycle. Observe if anything came out. If it did not work then you have to disconnect the other end of the drain hose from the check valve under the dishwasher and blow air through the hose. Unscrew the check valve from the pump and see if it's any foreign objects inside the check valve. Assemble everything back together and run the dishwasher. If the problem still exist that means the drain impeller inside the pump is bad and this is more serious issue. Let me know and we'll go further.

Dishwasher Leaking Dishwasher leaks from underneath the right front side of appliance. Can't tell exactly where it's leaking from, because of plastic guard/support on underside. All of the connections and hoses are in good shape. I'm assuming that it has something to do with the draining process, as it will leak 2-3 times during a wash cycle. Sometimes it's very little water and sometimes it's as much as a gallon.

My dishwasher skips the final drain cycle. The lines are all clean and there is no clog. It drains just fine in the beginning of the wash cycle. Every time I do a load of dishes I have to run the full cycle, then leave the machine open for 3-4 hours and start the cycle again and listen for the drain at the beginning of the wash to drain the machine from the initial wash and stop the machine after it is done draining so it won't fill up again. Sometimes we have to unplug it and wait about an hour

Kenmore model #363.14672100, approx. 10 years old. After the wash cycle, sometimes not all the water drains. This doesn't happen all the time but when it does, the next time I run the dishwasher, water runs out under the door. We have hard water and am guessing there is some build up. How can we correct???

Kitchen Aid Dishwasher KUDR24SEBLO does not drain 100%. I have removed the drain hose and chcked the sink P-Trap, [it drains thru the garbage disposer]. Unit is 10 years old, otherwise works fine. I am having difficulty removing the impeller and items above the pump to see if it is clogged. Do you think I have a partially clogged pump or a timer issue that prevents the pump from completely emptying the bottom of the dishwasher? We have run the dishwasher 20-30 times since observing the problem.

Whirlpool Dishwasher ADG 450. Start as normal and it keeps intermittentlly stopping and starting. Washs / drains fine, but sometimes cycle seams to last for a couple of hours. I think it is four beeps when it is stopping and then immediately starts again. We had a problem months ago where as the sink was draining into the dishwasher out pipe, so dishwasher wasn't draining / filling up. Fixed the problem by turning the pipe the other way so water couldn't flow that way - but I don't know if that

Bosch dishwasher Over the weekend my drains backed up into the dishwasher. After cleaning the drains I ran the dishwasher 3 times. Under the screen there is still about an inch of water. I never noticed this before because I never removed the screen before. Can you tell me if this is normal or is there a problem with the dishwasher. The water in the little area below the screen is clean.
