Leaky gate-valve in Kenmore dishwasher

\015 I have a leak in the gate-valve of my Kenmore Model 363.16171100. It leaks when the valve moves, maybe a teaspoon at a time. I wonder if the problem is more likely in the plastic gate-valve-arm or in the metal Armature & Linkage Assembly. The solenoid works fine, but it's getting a little corroded. (!)\015

It appears that the Inlet Valve is leaking on my Kenmore dishwasher. By replacing the inlet valve do I also need to undo the connection at the bottom with the teflon tape - or can I just undo the screws at the bottom of the plate and leave that connection alone? The dishwasher is 4 years old, could something be causing the valve leaking other than the valve being bad? Thanks! :))

Kenmore elite dishwasher valve # 8531325 let water run outside the dishwasher. I removed the valve inlet and nothing seems to be wrong with it. When I start a cycle, the water splashes out the valve through the vent holes. Any ideas ?


It is likely the water pressure is too high for the dishwasher. Can you check if the setting has not shifted to Low pressure. Try to run the dishwasher with mains tap feeding water inlet to a lower setting. ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDS02FRSS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

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.

No water is coming thru the water valve to fill the dishwasher. The water is turned on. I had a Kenmore portable dishwasher and we just converted it to a built-in. The electricity is on and the water line installed. When I turn on the dishwasher, it comes on ok but no water is coming into the machine.

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

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? Lifting the float while the dishwasher is off wo

Kenmore dishwasher 587.15163401 won't fill. I checked the float switch with my multimeter and it's working properly. It's registering zero when I touch the terminals and 1 when I activate the switch. On this particular washer, how do I access the water inlet valve to check it for debris and also to check the solenoids? Also on this particular washer, how do I access the drain valve and solenoid. Can you tell me if this is a single direction motor or reversing motor. As I understand

Kenmore dishwasher type 573-D, model 665.16034402. Items on top rack don't get washed. Items on bottom rack are washed fine. Appears top sprayer and maybe middle sprayer aren't getting water. At rear of washer, top rubber flapper valve (which feeds middle sprayer when top rack is in raised position) is stuck open, bottom flapper valve looks OK. We use top rack in raised position so this doesn't seem to be the problem.

I have a Kenmore dishwasher 665.17799990. Not enough water was coming in so I thought that I'd check the screen inside the water inlet valve to see if it was clogged. It was. I cleaned it out,but mistakenly opened the wrong part of the valve looking for the screen and took apart the diaphram assembly. Bad mistake. Now I can't get it back together without it leaking like crazy. I can't remember how it was configured to start with. I put it together once,but it wouldn't shut. I can't afford to buy

Drain problems I have a Kenmore 665.17292992 portable dishwasher. I've changed the filter and the seals however it still does not want to drain. It will drain but extremely slowly and since it's on a timer, it only drains maybe 10% of the water out. My next step was/is going to be the Check Valve... but I am at a loss right now. I thought for sure it would be the filter. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks, PM
