Having problems with your Kenmore Dishwashers ?

When I don't run my dishwasher, somehow water gets inside and gets stagnant.


Answers :

Check the drain hose where it connects under the sink. The hose must have a high loop that is the hose should be mounted higher than where it connects to the drain. There is a video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemaual.html on installing a dishwasher this will show you proper drain hose installation. If your hose does have the proper high loop the drain is probally somewhat clogged and backing into the dishwasher the high loop usually prevents this.

I am a licensed plumber who installed a frigidaire fdb1o5rem1 dishwasher for a customer about 2 years ago. It has water to the solenoid valve and the screen is clean. I can see water coming in to the unit on left side through the port hole on the inside of the unit. Dishes do not get clean and it doesnt act like water is being distrubuted inside the dishwasher. Soap never gets washed away from door. Dishwasher makes funny sound in mid cycle like the pump is not running in wash cycle. Discharge p


I can see from what you have described (by the way it is a very clear and precise description which is very helpful), there is a problem in the water circulation system. These dishwashers use an alternating water flow method to split the water circul ... Frigidaire Dishwashers

My Frididaire Dishwasher Model FDB1250REC1 is discolored inside. Its a browninsh color and it has gotten on my Corningware dishes and stained some of them. I can get most of the color off the dishes if I scrub hard. I have run cleaners for the dishwasher thru and cleaned it temporarly. Do you think this is the soap I use, amount of soap or maybe the water. Not sure its the water cause there is another one on my water line that is not really having this problem. I always run hot water just before

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

I have a Frigidaire Dishwasher, model #FDB635rfs It is not that old, but appears to have quit working. It sounds like it runs the water gets pushed in by the tube on the side but goes straight to the bottom of the washer. It looks like the spray arms are not spinning. Water is not circulating. Element still heats up. Detergent just runs down the inside of the door and doesn't dissolve since water is not circulating through arms. I have just replaced the water inlet valve and it did not hel

I have a LG Dishwasher LD 14AW3 it fills and runs for about 30 min. It then appears that when it tries to rinse it cannot get water and flashes "1E". I disconnected the unit and when I moved it out of its position water was leaking from the bottom of the unit. after cleaning out the inside filter & the hard water filter I re-connected and found it worked. I ran a dishwasher cleaner through it at high temp. After a few loads the problem has come back. It is now located in MY garage waiting for me

Water problem Hi, I have a Jenn air DW 711 that does not get water. I checked the following: Water line: I unhooked the water line and it is clear & free flowing. Float: The float moves up and down as it should. Filter: The filter inside the tub is clean. The motor runs and will drain any water in the tub I put a bucket of water in the tub and the dishwasher immediately drains no matter which setting I choose. Any ideas? Thanks, Steve

I tried the steps listed at this website for the same issue I am having. http://www.fixya.com/support/t273954-kenmore_elite_dishwasher The steps worked to get the dishwasher to "reset" with all the lights coming on. The problem I am having now is that after the "reset" the dishwasher starts to run a small cycle for about 5 minutes. Upon opening the washer, nothing has happened inside (no water, no visible movement of parts, no soap container opening). Upon closing the dishwasher and trying

Recently our GU1100XTLQ1 started having a problem. It barely cleans the bottom rack, and barely gets top rack wet. The soap stays stuck in the dispenser. I can't see inside as it runs, but my guess is that not enough water is being shot out of the various spinning arms. From looking at diagrams it would appear that this dishwasher uses a pump to circulate water from the bottom of the cavity through the spinning arms. Is my problem a dying pump?

Hi there My Bosch Exxcel Dishwasher is tripping out the fusebox RCD and I think there is an earthing problem. It will run for 3 or 4 minutes and then the house alarm goes off and the cooker clock needs resetting! I have tried to look in the back but don't know how to remove the panels. I've tried tipping it to 45 degrees to see if there is any water in the innards but non water came out. I have no idea what to look for - and no manual to help me get inside the beast!

Hi I went away on holiday and my dishwasher AEG 50800 was in perfect order. When I came back after three weeks it does not work. It was not in use while I was away so I don't get how come it is not working now .It does start up but its like the pump is just not kicking in. Ihear water running but the blades dont move and nothing seems to get washed, any ideas. Or is a new expensive pump my only option? My Husband seems to think a seal might have gone. Can a seal go while not in use? Thanks

I have a Hotpoint FDW80 Dishwasher. The drain pump runs continuously, even though there is no water inside, I poured water in with a kettle and it does drain correctly. After a short while fault code AL01 appears. I have removed the base tray to check the "anti-flood" swithch and that is OK, even with the switch disconnected, I still get AL01. Any ideas?

My dish washer isn't cleaning the dishes well. There are little particals inside of every cup and on dishes after it is done. I just emptied and and now I'm running it with bleach. But before I started it I looked at the drain hose under the sink. The drain hose had water in it. The drain hose is going uphill from the dishwasher to the sink so I don't know if this is normal to have some water in the drain hose when the washer completes since it's not would have to pump uphill to get to the garba

Our Whirlpool KUDP01ILBS2 dishwasher isn't working like it used to. Dishes seem to be getting partially clean, they aren't getting dry at all and it seems they may be being rinsed/washed with dirty water. There is plenty of water in the machine when I interupt the cleaning cycle. I always run the hot water in the sink before I start the dishwasher so the first water into the dishwasher is as hot as possible. Also the sani-rinse light is flashing when the cycle "completes".
