Dishwasher not cleaning - want to clean drain

\015 I have a kenmore elite dishwasher model no. 665.15937000 ... lately it is not cleaning the dishes well .. I went in to remove the drain filter screen (in order to clean below filter) but was unable to get to all 4 screws - the last screw is covered by the ULTRA FlOW water feed tube ... what is the proper technique/sequence for removing the water flow tube ? ..and once removed, will the drain filter easily be removed after all 4 screws are out? ... is there another solution I should be working on ? \015\012\015\012thanks\015

Answers :

We have a Kenmore 665.17702k600 Portable dishwasher with a similar problem. What we did was pop off the drain cover (turns out the one screw wasn't doing anything and just pushed down into the unit when screwdriver was applied). We popped it off by shimmying a screwdriver under the panel, and applying torque on the long end. It just popped right off. Then there was this nasty stale water, and not much obvious debri. We used a wet vac to slurp all that up. So that's the solution we took -- haven't tried it yet, so not sure if it will actually fix the problem...

Our dishwasher, Model Automatic G572 SC runs, but does not drain. I have cleaned all the rotating sprayers, have made sure that the disposal is clear, and have checked the various parts in the base of the dishwasher. We had this problem a few years ago, but after letting the dishwasher sit for a few days, it corrected itself. I don't want to pay for the repair and heard that you can walk me through most simple problems. Help! Thanks.

Bad smell This is more of a general question. When I run the dishwasher there is a bad smell as it fills with water. It comes out of the sink/garbage disposal. I have cleaned out the line that comes from the garbage disposal to the drain and that doesn't stop the smell. Is there a line that needs to be cleaned from the dishwasher to the sink or how can I fix this issue? My dishwasher, at the drain, has water standing and it smells. I think it is there from condensation as the dishwasher, unknow

I have a Bosch Dishwasher, Model SHE46C06UC. No mater what cycle I start it in, it simply activates the drain and continues to run without ever starting. Within the last week prior to the dishwasher not working, I noticed a low hum/vibration emitting from the dishwasher. I've clean out the screen and drain filter, removed the pump cover to check for any debris. I've manually added water and it does drain. Additionally, the drain cycle continues to operate even with the door open.


First thing you may want to check is the door switch. You can pull it off and measure the resistance with an ohmmeter. If you get good reading while pushed in and none while switch button is released, then it is a good start. Next, you may want ... Dishwashers
