Having problems with your Kenmore Dishwashers ?

We just installed a new kenmore dishwasher yesterday. Model 13242 It has been running for almost2 hours and is still on the washing cycle--no water in it however--is this normal? I'm in a bit of a panic as we are canning and I need the jars washed--we didn't get a manual with it as it was a floor model so I don't know how lon the normal cycle ids. HELP


Answers :

THAT IS NOT NORMAL!!!!!!! A normal wash and dry cycle will take approx. 2 hours in length including drying cycle.
\012You should see that water has been present in the machine within the first 2 minutes of the start of the wash cycle, you should also be able to hear the water entering the wash tub.
\012The fill valve or water supply seems to be the issue, if the water doesn't enter the tub then the controller won't proceed witht the wash cycle. Double check your water supply tube / hose to make sure there is water present at the connection to the dishwasher.
\012 GOOD LUCK !

Kenmore Elite Stainless Steel 24 inch tall Model 66577963K701. The heating element works for "heated dry" but not for "Hi Temperature" wash.

My hot water tank is a great distance from the washer so we usually run the hot water tap in the sink for a bit until hot water comes... but the heating coil no longer kicks in on any of the cycles (Smart Wash / Normal Wash ).

Hello. I have a Frigidaire model GLD2250RDS0 that starts a wash cycle normally, then stops mid cycle with the 'washing, drying clean and sanitized' lights all blinking. There is no service sheet behind the panel so I don't have a dianostic to run. I have tried the normal things such as unplugging power and looking for obstructions.

I have a Sears Kenmore Elite Ultra dishwasher 665.1315 model. For the last 3 weeks, it keeps having the clean light blinking 6 times pause then 1 blink and pause and repeats cycle again.

Our GE dishwasher (5 yrs old, Model GLD4250L00CS) only fills with water half way when the unit is started. The inlet valve was replaced with a new one, but that did not solve the problem. When started, the dishwasher fill cycle runs for 41 seconds before the wash cycle begins. Repair workers told us we probably need a new ECU (Electronic Computer Unit). My questions are: Is 41 seconds the correct time for the fill cycle for our model? What else could be the reason for the unit not filling pr

Bosch dishwasher, Model SMU 7056, UC 09, FD 7309. My older unit has operated flawlessly for years. Two days ago it started to "stall" in one cycle and not progress to the next, e.g., stayed in the wash cycle and would not move on to rinse. In addition the heat generated in the machine was way below normal. A repairman told me that if the water doesn't get hot enough, the unit will not move on to the next cycle. I always use the "Regular Wash" option, but tried other options such as 'Economy

Maytag dishwasher model MDB7609AWW2 has a blinking clean light. I followed the advice on fixya (thankya!) and by alternating the normal and heated wash buttons I was able to return the lights to normal. However, once I tried to run a normal cycle, it didn't do anything other than fill and drain. I then ran the hot water faucet in the sink until hot and tried another new cycle, but no luck. Any advice is MUCH appreciated!
