Having problems with your Kenmore Dishwashers ?

I have a Kenmore Quietguard Standard model 587 Dishwasher. It's about 3 years old. Lately, it has been running fine through the first hour and then towards the end, it will pause and the "Hi Temp" and "Heat Dry" like will start blinking at the same time. It's like it is stalled. When this happens, I open up the door and look at the bottom of the dishwasher were the screen is, and I see there is standing water. I press the "Start/Cancel" button to help it drain all the way, which it does, but th

Hi,
My take on that would be a bad heating element....the dishwasher is looking for the heat from it and that never happens....so it goes no further and gives the alarm....
I would get someone to check that heating element out and replace it if it is bad... they are a common part that fails regularly and often causes many problems when they do...

Hello,I hope you can answer the question below for me. My dishwasher is a Hotpoint model BFI680 - integrated. I want to replace the old interlocking assembly with a new one as the spring has broken and I can not close the dishwasher door. I have trouble removing the old interlocking assembly though. I can not see any screws that keep it into place as with other models. Instead, it looks like that it is "clipped" to the dishwasher door via the two inner side round holes at the bottom. Tried to re

Kenmore 17362 dishwasher was making a bad noise and now the motor seems to be locked up. I might have already un-jammed the motor by removing the cover on the bottom (inside), and turning the knife impeller on the outside of the screen, but I can see lint type material in the hole on the other side of the impeller. Hard to explain, but it is in the hole in the center of the unit and there is a screen like the knife impeller has behind it. I could clean this lint if I could get the door off. How

I have a Whirlpool DUL300XTLQ3 dishwasher Quiet Partner III. After several washings we noticed that the dishes were not clean at all. I placed the spinners pointing out, shut the door, waited 3-5min and re-opened the door, the spinners were in the same place. Neither were turning. So I disassembled the bottom of the dishwasher, took of the spinner+filter screen etc, down to the bottom well.

Hey Everyone! Ok try this one! I have been working on a KUDS25 Kitchenaid Dishwasher. It was leaking like a siv from the bottom. I replaced both top and bottom plastic bearings and also tightend all the screws at the bottom. Leak Gone, I thought. It now has small leaks down both sides. I have since been told by the owner that he took the door apart himself. I pulled out the dishwasher from the cabinet and ran it. I could see the leaks at the top on both sides of the door latch.

The dishwasher doesn't seem to have nearly enough water in it. The upper sprayer arm doesn't seem to be spinning when running (I open the door and look really quick) and the lower one looks like it barely spins and barely sprays water. The dishes are barely wet and the soap is just laying on the bottom. The water is on, there are no kinks in the supply line. It sounds like it is running, and pumps pumping, but being brand new I am not sure what it should sound like. It certainly doesn't sound li

I own a KUDS01FLSS3 KitchenAid dishwasher. The lights on the control panel do not come on and a cycle can not be started. There is about an inch of water in the bottom of the dishwasher basin and it looks like the previous cycle did not complete. I have checked the wall outlet that the washer is plugged into and the washer is receiving power from the wall. And ideas? My next thought was to take the door off and check the power supply running to the door panel and control panel.

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

Hi, We have a Frigidaire dishwasher machine 1500 series with fully electronic control. It is a new unit, has been installed nearly 4 months ago. The other day, when I went to take the dishes out of it, I notice that the rubber gasket that seals the door had come off somehow. Along with it I saw, sitting on the bottom, two pieces that looked like part of the seal, but I didn't know where they came from. I put the rubber gasket back on, but now the pieces and now the dishwasher will leak when runn

My glassware almost seems like it has breadcrumbs stuck to it. I have run several empty cycles but the problem persists. Is there a filter I am supposed to be cleaning or something? I can see in the leftover puddled water on the recessed exterior glass bottoms what almost looks like sand particles or breadcrumbs, although I know it's not. I had the same problem at my last house with a different brand of dishwasher. How do I get rid of this if it doesn't flush out the system, even on an empty cyc

I have a Candy CD650 dishwasher which is not washing properly. Basically, the detergent tablets seem to be getting stuck in the tray. Most times I open the door, the tablet is a pile of mush inside the tray. Other times it is on the bottom of the dishwasher - again a pile of mush! Sometimes, it starts the program & sounds like it's about to start a wash cycle, but then gives up! it gives one short woosh, the stops again. Any ideas how to fix this? I don't have a manual so can't look there.
