Having problems with your Kenmore Dishwashers ?

My dishwasher is not draining. I tried to take apart inside and get to the drain, but was unable to get beyond a certain point. Could not get down to the drain.


Answers :

Hello, the blockage is most likely in the check valve, remove the kick plate under the door and then remove the drain pipe. once the drain pipe is removed unscrew the part it was attached to counter clockwise. now check to see that the check valve flap is still in place and there are no cherry pits or similar food particles blocking the check valve. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment again. Mike

We came home from holidays a few years ago and the dishwasher (Westinghouse 905) just didn't turn on. We've tried it repeatedly since then and are unable to get it to turn on. The power point works for other appliances. Should we replace it or could someone fix it? And is it a plumber or electrician you get to fix dishwashers?

I have a Fisher Paykel dishwasher Model # DD603. It is about 5 years old. My problem is that the top drawer is difficult to open Pulling it open it becomes easier once I get beyond a certain point. The reverse is true when closing it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks...Jared


Sounds like your lid actuators are not opening completely, they move the lid up and down. They are prone to failure, F/P has new actuators, German made, that can be installed and would probably solve the problem. ... Fisher and Paykel 23 in. DD-603SS Built-in Dishwasher

My Bosch diswasher is hanging up in the cycle (at 102 mins. in normal cycle and 38 mins in quick cycle). I hear what sounds like a one second pumping of water into the sink area, a pause, and then another one second pumping of water, on and on, but there's no progression beyond this point. One possible cause: a few weeks ago someone turned off the hot water at the heater and another person tried to run the dishwasher. The dishwasher did not function because it could not get hot water.

We live in an apartment and our hot point dishwashers timing is all off and i thought if i could fix it myself, i'd love to do that instead of calling our manager, i will call him, but if its an easy fix i'd like to try it out.. it will just stop in mid cycle, and you have to manually more it a fraction of an inch to get it restarted, then at the end it doesnt fully drain, and the drying takes forever, so if i cant fix it, i'll ask for a new one..


It might need a new mechanical timer (sounds like the timer is sticking) installed and the parts will cost money... so you might want to go the route of the manager. The dial that you turn to set the dishwasher is part of the mechanical timer. Someti ... Dishwashers

I have a Kitchen Aid KUDS03CTSS3 dishwasher. Dirty water is staying at the bottom and nothing comes out the drain hose during the entire cycle. The drain hose is looped above the kitchen P-trap, although for a time it wasn't. I use a wet vac to get the water out but there is still water below the fine filter. I thought if I could get the fine filter off, I could clean out the bottom as I think that it's full of crud down there that may be blocking things. I can't figure out how to get the l

My SGS55M72AU/65 does not get rid of its drain water, although that wee pump in the bottom is clearly working (which I could see after removing filters and pump cover). There is no blockage near the drain pipe connection, so I infer there is a blockage somewhere inside the dishwasher, in a place I can't get to without further instruction. I've removed most of the drain water and pulled the unit out, so I could lay it on its side and start taking screws out. But I much prefer to have some guidanc

My Kenmore Ultra Wash, type 575D does not drain after completing all cycles. I can get it to drain by pressing the cancel/drain button a couple of times.

I am having problems with the bottom drawer not draining in my Fisher Paykel dishwasher. How do I drain the water? the last time a repair man came for this same problem, he was able to punch the keys in a certain order to get it to drain.


You can do 2 things: If this problem persists it means that the "flap" that prevents the water from draining into the drawer needs to be replaced, unfortunately this is a common problem with this model if you are a frequent user.

Hi I have a Nemo Dishwasher and the top spray arm is not turning. The bottom one is going fine and there is certainly plenty of water getting into the washer as I opened the door with the washer going and it flood me.

Have spent $300 in the last week on Haier HDW101ss repairs. It still isnt fixed. The repair guy 'thinks' it is now a faulty timer. The unit hangs at certain points in the cycle. At these points the timer (ticking) noise stops but the machine carries on washing. It will hang at this point indefinately. I have taken the timer out, and it looks brand new (the unit is only 4yr old). Any advise, does this sound like a timer issue, or could it be something else? Where can i source a cheap (2nd hand)

I just bought a used Kenmore standalone dishwasher and ran it for the first time. The dishes on the top did not get clean and the soap did not come out of the closed soup dish. at one point I took a shower and was wondering if that might have influenced the water pressure enough to cause the problem. Is the soap supposed to open during the wash and could the poor water pressure prevent the top shelf from getting properly washed?

When we plumbed it in and connected the electrical directly, we now get an "F4" flashing on the panel with a beeping noise and the pump sounds like it wants to drain but just get a sucking noise. I've tried putting water in it to prime the pump, but still doesn't want to work. Do the codes mean anything, or point to a specific part?

My tappan dishwasher is only 1 1/2 yr old and its not getting at least 1/2 of dishes clean. We have tried everything from changing to liquid soap, increasing water pressure at meter, not using while washing clothes. We used a dishwasher cleaner to remove calcium, and run hot water in sink before using. We know the wand, pump and drain are working. It is model TDB210RFB5 with 1.1A motor. Is the motor too small to clean dishes? I wish I could get my money back or exchange for an upgrade. Thanks!
