No water - Kenmore Dishwashers


Answers :

Problem one : check to see if the float switch is stuck in the up position. The float is located usally in the front right or lift corner. Moving it up and down should make a clicking noise. If no clicking noise is heard. Remove front kick plate. (4 screws) and check switch with electrical meter. If still no water check to see if there is voltage to water inlet valve. If there is power to the inlet valve and still no water. Replace water inlet valve. There is two screws holding the valve in place and a coper line to the valve and a black rubber hose on the top of the valve held on with a hose clamp. Always shut the power off to the appliance before replacing any parts for safty.Make sure you shut the water off before removing valve.

Kenmore dishwasher My Kenmore dishwasher model 630.16302401 is not successfully completing wash cycle. When I hit "normal" and turn it on, water enters the d/w, and the sprayers (both top and bottom), spray water. Approx. 10 mins. later, the water is drained. At that point, it appears that water never again enters the d/w to complete the wash cycle. In fact, the soap in the dispenser does get released, and the door opens. However, the soap will just run down the inside of the door and pool on th

Hi, I have a Kenmore 15879 that is basically working except the bottom water spinner...lol (don't know technical name). The dishwasher pumps the water into the bottom of the dishwasher, will heat the water, but not disperse the water in the spinning sprinkler manner it's suposed to. I've opened the dishwasher in time to see that water is spurting out of the holes about 2" high, but it's just not spinning. The water also drains just fine after the whole cycle.


This is caused by the impeller being clogged or the pump is failing, When the pump is woring properly the water will shoot out with force. ... Kenmore 15879 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 Have a kenmore 655.15889020 dishwasher which does not appear to be pumping water fast enough. No apparent blockages. Arms circulate very slow. Enough water in sump. Could it be the motor for some reason is running slow? Or maybe some valve is not closing properly.

Kenmore dishwasher. The upper rack is not getting clean. Even very light residue remains. And, detergent is left in door at end of cycle. The bottom is filling up, so I don't think it's the intake valve. Also, all the blade openings appear clear. I am noticing that hot water is not filling the dishwasher when I first run the cycle. Even if I have hot water running in the sink, the dishwasher fills with cold or warm water. So, I think this is the problem. What should I do? Thank you in advance!


I find it odd that the dishwasher is filling with cold water if the water is hot at the sink. It sounds like the dishwasher is connected to the cold water line rather than the hot. Check under your sink; if you've got standard plumbing, the dishwas ... Dishwashers

Some water went in, but then nothing happened again. I clicked forward one click at a time. Sometimes water came in. Then water star

I have a DU8000XX6 series Kenmore dishwasher that won't drain the water properly. There is about a half inch of water in the tub and the float is raised (not sitting on tub bottom). When I lift up the float a little more I can hear the float switch make. I would assume that when the water is high enough the float switch makes and energizes a solenoid valve in the drain to drain the water, but shouldn't it stay open until all the water drains?
