Having problems with your Kenmore Dishwashers ?

The dishwasher isn't draining. The unit was replaced and it still doesn't drain. The tubing leading to the garbage disposal is clear. The air gap seems to be located outside. What do I do, outside of calling a plumber that I can't afford?


Answers :

Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When\015\012electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the\015\012water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever,\015\012sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly.\015\012Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may\015\012have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the\015\012motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain\015\012valve diverts the water.

Honda GC190 no start. Unit has been sitting for 2 years. Drained old gas, cleaned the carb. No go. New plug gapped to 0.030in. Still nothing. spark seems good. Cleaned the fuel strainer and there IS a bit of vacuum at the fuel pump when cranking. Poured a dab of gas into combustion chamber.. Still won't "talk to me" AT ALL. Removed valve cover and checked the valves.. within specs and nothing sticking or hanging up. Timing belt and cam looks good. Took a peak at the coil.. air gap in specs. 1ohm

We have installed a dishwasher (as of yesterday) and everything seems to work but it will not drain. this is a replacement for a kitchen-aid dishwasher that we have had for 17 years. Everything looks the same - it is supposed to pump through the garbage disposal. There is not an air gap but we did not have one with the old washer.

My new dishwasher ( KitchenAid Model # KUDE60FVSS3).Water remains in the tub after the cycle is finished. I have taken out the water and ran another load but the same thing happens.

Kenmore 665.16762000 We were washing dishes the other night and my husband walked into the kitchen to find water pouring out of the "air gap" in the sink. Now we cant get the unit to come on. Ive tried some of the various combinations of button pushing to re-set, but so far still not operating. I am thinking it may be the "thermal fuse" due to some other questions here, but how can i confirm.... and the biggest question... how much is that gonna cost me to replace if i do it myself?

2 weeks ago, I had a plumber come and put in a new garbage diposer and since then somewhat old/dirty water seems to be sitting at the bottom after all cycles are done. I calle dhim back and he says that there is no problem in the plumbing but more with the pump. I even use the wt/dry vac and removed water and ran it but still comes back with water at the bottom. also the dishes smell like soap. Help!!!


The plumber did not make an air gap in the dishwasher drain hose when he reattached it to the new disposal. Look under your sink, does the hose (attached to the disposal) go down and through the cabinet? If so, that is definitely the issue. Simple ... GE 24 in. Profile PDW7800 Built-in Dishwasher

I have a whirlpool gold model GU1500 diswasher.

I called a parts place to see if I could order a thermal cut off fuse. But the representative stated there is no fuse listed for this model. Any ideas on what would be causing a loss of power?

My mother has cancer so needs me to research her problem with her dishwasher. My mother's sink drain water is emptying into the dishwasher. It has to be manually removed since she does not cook much and therefore no longer uses the dishwasher as much as she used to. Is there anything I can do without calling a repair man or plumber? And if I must call a repair man, which should I call, a Maytag repair man or a plumber?
