Having problems with your Kenmore Dishwashers ?

I have a Kenmore Ultra Wash dishwasher. Model # 665.15685791. All of a sudden it acts as if it is getting too much water. Water comes over the edge of the interior tub during the rinse cycle, and ends up on the kitchen floor. Is there an adjustment I can make? There doesn't seem to be any blockage, as all the water does drain out of the tub during the regular cylcles. Vince Woodwick [email protected]

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

Made funny noise; stopped to investigate; then wouldn't restart; followed directions below from FixYa and restarted. It finished the cycle, apparently correctly, except it left a little water in the tub. Also, continued to make a lot of noise--a loud motor hum/buzz or similar. Did not make this noise during dry cycle. Dishwasher is Kenmore Model 665; stock number 16839. Can you give continued diagnostic instructions?

I have a Kenmore dishwasher model #665.13842K601. The problem that it has is that it does not seem to be pumping the water around the tub after it fills. It will fill and drain fine but will not wash. I have removed the spray arms and checked all the parts that I can get to from the inside but fear that it may be a pump or jammed impeller. it does make a faint buzzing sound when it should be operating. Any input would be great. Thanks, Matt

How to diagnose? My Kenmore won't run. First it was flashing the clean light 7 times, so I figured out how to reset ("High Temp Scrub"/"Air Dry"/"High Temp Scrub"/"Air Dry"), but when I try to run a wash, it sounds like it's not getting water into the tub. When I checked it several minutes later, it was in "Cancel" mode, making a sound like it was draining (or trying to drain), then the clean light started flashing 7 times again. Clearly, the machine has something wrong but I don't know where to

My Kenmore Elite dishwasher (model 665.17462300) is not spraying the water from the basin in the bottom up through the rest of the dishwasher. The basin fills with water, then just makes a humming noise and appears to splash a little of the water around the very bottom of the dishwasher. When we cancel the cycle, it does drain out the water from the basin. I cleaned all the gunk and debris out of the basin in the bottom, but it didn't make any difference.

Hi. Our DS603I dishwasher starts on the Rinse cycle on its own - it beeps, red light flashing and no water entering the tub. It does this even if it is open. Similarly, when we try to turn it on to do a normal or heavy cycle, it starts (making quiet a loud noise) and then goes to the Rinse cycle, beeping, red light flashing, no water going into the tub. The pump wheel is turning. We can't find any blockages in the tubes. We have power-cycled it many times. Please help!

Water is leaking from the top of the top drawer, mainly on the right side of the top drawer. Is there an adjustment to raise the tub so that it would have an even seal to prevent the water from leaking. I noticed that the top drawer has a bigger gap on the right side or has more give-in/movemenet when the tub is lifted compare to the left side. This casue the flooding error at the end of the washing cycle.
