Having problems with your Kenmore Dishwashers ?

I turned on the dishwasher tonight and noticed nothing was happening, but I was getting a clicking sound. I moved the dial back to off and started over. Some water went in, but then nothing happened again. I clicked forward one click at a time. Sometimes water came in. THEN WATER STARTED LEAKING OUT. I clicked back to off. After water stopped leaking, I opened the door. There is still water in the bottom. What do I do???

Hi
\015\012
\015\012Thanks for using FixYa. As the water is not draining and clicking is\015\012coming from the bottom so the issue seems to be with the drain pump solenoid.
Usually, these issues are related\015\012to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher\015\012drain hose) & clogged drain pump & filter. Some of the most common\015\012reasons include that the drain hose isn't working properly, the drain pump\015\012isn't working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home's\015\012drain lines. First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the\015\012line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air\015\012gap. If you have checked the drain hose and can't locate the problem, then it\015\012is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher. Please\015\012accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further\015\012assistance.

Possible that the program controller unit is faulty, hence when you move the program contacts but not by itself. So to test this for confirmation , put the dial to prgram and wait , if there is no ticking of the unit to move forward, connect the input valve to let water in, then proceed to wash.
\015\012The drain is not working as the program is not moving up and so the controller by itself is a suspect.

I have a Kenmore dishwasher (model 363.14478791). I hadn't used the dishwasher in a month. I turned on the dishwasher tonight and noticed nothing was happening, but I was getting a clicking sound.

G851 SC Plus started to trip GFI plug. Called Miele and they said there was nothing wrong with the dishwasher and the GFI was faulty. Unplugged from GFI and plugged into regular plug and it worked for a few days. Eventually stopped running. How wrong Miele was, it had everything to do with the dishwasher and not the GFI. It was only warning me a problem was coming. Appliance man came out, noticed water in bottom pan and order new pump, said seal probably gone. Came back, replaced the pump, put d

My dishwasher recently started leaving a white, chalky residue on all the dishes. It wasn't gradual at all. One day everything was fine and all the dishes clean and the next they were covered in nasty residue. We've ruled out any issues with soap, rinse agents and hard water. A appliance repair guy came out and said the float was "tampered" with and said that he fixed it. He said that if the problem came back we need to order a new float assembly kit.

Hi I went away on holiday and my dishwasher AEG 50800 was in perfect order. When I came back after three weeks it does not work. It was not in use while I was away so I don't get how come it is not working now .It does start up but its like the pump is just not kicking in. Ihear water running but the blades dont move and nothing seems to get washed, any ideas. Or is a new expensive pump my only option? My Husband seems to think a seal might have gone. Can a seal go while not in use? Thanks

Bosch Shu43C02UC dishwasher fills with water but the washing won't start. As the filling nears complete, a double clicking noise occurs to start the washing motor but nothing happens.

Hi my L G dish washer is coming up with E1 . It comes on after about 2 min it takes water into the washer then it hummes for about 30 seconds then comes up with E1 and pumps water back out. I have checked the hoses which don't appear to be leaking -I read somewhere in your answers about this problem that it could be the Water Level in Drum lowering, this means there is a leak on one of the pipes. More likely it is the Circulation Pump, which is responsible for pushing the water to the Spray

My 12 yr old KitchenAid -Sculptura-Model KUDR24SE starts to fills with water and then does nothing else. It will eventually go through the cycles on the panel, but nothing is happening inside. End result is still dirty dishes with water sitting in the bottom that has to be baled out. Cups on top rack don't have any water on the indentations, so it's obvious that the thing filled with water and that's it.

Hello, my Hoover D7610 dishwasher has developed a problem, I would appreciate your advice.On starting a wash it appears to be working OK through what I believe to be a rinse cycle but then after about 20 minutes water pours out from the bottom of the door. Manually clicking the timer-programer forward stops the leaking but the machine needs manual advancement except for the last 2 cycles when the timer seems to work OK.
