My Kenmore Ultra Wash, type 575D does not drain after completing all cycles. I can get it to drain by pressing the cancel/drain button a couple of times. I have checked the filters and they are clean. What could be the problem? I believe the unit is only about 4 years old and it doesn't get over-used. Thanks. Jim Seibert

Dishwasher Problem... Hey, I'm sorry I can't seem to find this information anywhere else. I'm having a similar problem with my dishwasher (also a kenmore quiet guard) and I wanted to try to clean the filter. I'm not sure how to remove the lower arm of the dishwasher. There is a kind of plastic-screw in the middle of the lower arm, is that what holds it on? I'm afraid to try twisting it because I don't want to break it. How did you get it off of yours? I hope I'm not bothering you! Thank you, Je


You are right. The plastic screw needs to be removed. I have a Quiet Guard 4. My procedure is as follows:\015\0121. Remove baskets. Need to pop off the 'keepers' at the ends of the top slidding shelf supports.\015\0122. Remove bott ... Dishwashers

I have a BOSCH 8280 dishwasher which at the end of its cycle still has soapy water in the bottom of the machine. The dishes, and especially the cutlery, are left smeared and looking unfinished. I lifted out and cleaned the filter in the floor of the machine but the water still doesn't drain away. Are there any other filters etc which may be causing the problem? Any ideas. Thanks.

Dishlex DX450 has been working OK for years - suddenly not washing - white deposits and cutlery looks greasy - but machine clean and all filters and arms clear of debris. Have removed pumps and hoses - all clean - no obvious problems. Seems to complete a full cycle - but the problem is consistent every wash - independent of the dishes. Welcome any insights - thank you, Richard

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


This may not be the solution, but look for an air in-take somewhere on the top/back of the unit. It's probably covered by a stainless steel cover that can be taken off. Unscrew this cover and see if the air intake is blocked with lint. This is usua ... Dishwashers

I own a Kenmore UltraWash dishwasher Model # 66513833K601. I have noticed in the past couple of weeks that my dishes are not getting as cleaned as before. I checked the bottom spray arm and found that it wobbles while rotating. It doesn't rotate smoothly when I try to spin it on my own. Could this be my problem? Thank you for your help.

I have a Beko DWD5410W dishwasher. It has been working well for a couple of years now. Last week is stopped during a wash cycle and now when you switch it on, it fills with water to the top of the filters (as normal?) and stops. Nothing further happens no matter how long I wait unless I switch the machine to drain mode. Do you have any idea what the problem could be or how I can go about investigating further?
