Kenmore 665.1435. fills but does not wash. makes humming noise.


Answers :

Check to see if you have any obstructions (broken glass, etc.P)) that may have worked their way into the drain sump area in the bottom of the dishwasher. It is possible that something has jammed the pump motor, hence the humming sound.
\015\012
\015\012Most dishwasher use one pump/motor to both wash and pump out the diswasher, so if it gets jammed, it won't do much except hum. You might have to remove the dishwasher from under the counter to remove the pump unit to get at the obstruction, but be sure to disconnect the power, water inlet and discharge lines first. You'll also need plenty of towels and a sponge to get as much water as possble out of the dishwasher first. Have a bucket handy!
\015\012
\015\012Normally broken glass or small stuff can get into the pump mechanism and lodge between the impeller and the pump housing, causing the motor to jam and hum, as it cannot spin freely. With a few basic hand tools (nut drivers and screwdriver) you should be able to get at the problem and resolve it fairly easily.
\015\012
\015\012Worse case is that the motor has failed (has gone bad) and will need to be replaced, but it is worth first checking for a n obstruction to determine if that's the problem before having to buy an expensive motor.

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???

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. How do I get to these parts to check them out?

Dishwasher hums I have a 2003 Kenmore Elite Ultra Wash Dishwasher model #665.17469300. I started the wash today. The water came in the unit and started washing then I heard it stop and it just started making a humming noise. I was afraid it was going to overheat or something so I cancelled the washed and it drained out. I started the unit up on a different cycle and the water came in the unit but did not wash it just hummed so I cancelled and drained it again. I did that on all cycles and the sa

I have a Kenmore dishwasher model #17519200. I loaded it last night as usual and closed the door. I pressed the wash cycle I wanted and pressed the start button. I heard it starting to fill with water as usual. After it filled with water it should have gone into the wash cycle mode but it just started making a buzzing noise for about a minute or two then just stopped. I pressed cancel to drain it and it drains fine. I have kept trying to re-run it but it just does the same thing I described.

When the water should be filling or rinsing the machine is making a horrible, loud, noise and no water is coming out. The solutions I looked at for no water don't mention this noise - they mention a slight hum. This noise is as loud as a TV turned up almost all the way! This happened during a cycle - the wash ran fine and it got to the rinse and started this.


Hi,If the noise lasts beyond 2 minutes at a time (which it sounds like it does) then you have a motor problem. I am suspecting that the main seal has leaked onto the motor and is causing water to get into the motor. ... Maytag 24 in. MDB4100 Built-in Dishwasher

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 dishwasher has loud noise during fill. If you let it go, the washer fills. Once filled, noise stops and wash cycle continues. Sounds like plumbing does when there is air in the pipes. Not a grinding sound. Very deep pitch. Stops when the washer fills with water.


This isn't a solution but rather a comment, if the problem is happening only during the fill, then it could be the water inlet valve. Perhaps there is a soliniod going in the valve, watch to see if the fill cycle starts to dimminish over time. Does t ... Kenmore Dishwashers
