The note by FixAllPhil entitled "Poor cleaning or noisy pump on Whirlpool or Kenmore dishwasher" has a significant error. The first step should be to "Remove the lower wash arm (1) by turning the nut CLOCKWISE (right)". I damaged the threads on my dishwasher nut by trying to turn it counterclockwise. Once that error is corrected, please remove this post.

I have a Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher (Model Number 665.15634) that will not fill up properly. When I try to run a cycle (any cycle), the first thing the dishwasher should do is fill up with hot water. But in my case, my dishwasher fills for about 10 seconds, then stops. Then tries to fill again for about 7 seconds, then abruptly stops again. And this process goes on and on and on. The dishwasher never fully fills up nor starts the wash sequence properly. Once the dishwasher fills up, it

The dishwasher isn't cleaning well and doesn't use much rinse agent. I have tried and tried to figure out why the dishwasher isn't washing dishes well and I can't figure it out. I haven't called the manufacturer yet and maybe I should. I've changed the cycles and that doesn't matter. First thing is that it doesn't really use very much rinse agent, so my glasses look yucky. Second thing is that I can tell it hasn't cleaned the dishes well because the inside of the door isn't clean. With a s
