Having problems with your Kenmore Dishwashers ?

Kenmore dishwasher fills with hot water but will not wash, just a faint hum. goes through cycle, drains fine, like motor doesn't turn on.


Answers :

The faint "hum" sound is your wash motor trying to turn on. You either have a piece of glass/tooth pick/ ect.. or a worn out bearing. Its time to change your wash motor. If you do a DIY you can save money over having a service man come out and charge about the cost of a new one.\012

I have an older Maytag model #WU482. For some reason it will not drain and will only run using the economy mode. I can hear the timer ticking at all other cycles and it does click between cycles. I recently replaced the drain float and the machine had been working fine after. The motor is working and the belt is good. I think the kids were playing with the timer knob. Could this cause a problem with the timer motor? Or does this sound more like a pump out issue, impeller? I'm thinking its

Hello, I have a Kitchen Aid (model # KUDMO1T JWHO) dishwasher that runs the motor in all cycles, with water fill & drain working fine, but the pump is not pumping water during any cycle, as the spinners and the inside of the washer are dry when I open the door, except for the water sitting in the bottom. Also, no normal swishing sound of water when the motor runs in any cycle. Looks to me like a mechanical break in the pump drive. How do I check the pump drive on this model? Do you have any

When it calls for a drain cycle it sounds like the motor tries to start for half a second and then the display blinks and there is a click. This repeats every few seconds until you open the door. If you wait 15 minutes and close the door it will click once and then drain fine; until the next drain cycle.

My garbage disposal had something stuck in it. i did not know and the sink was backed up. i started the dishwasher and it sounded like the motor was running like a drain emptying...i thought it would stop but continued. i unplugged the dishwasher, freed the garbage disposal and the drain is now clear. i turned on the dishwasher and the sound is the same. the large POT light is lit up and when you try to shut it off it doesnt stop running. i unplugged it for fear of breaking something.

Bosch she44c06uc. Like many here, changed out the garbage disposal and didn't drain. Have reset the system by holding the "Drain Cancel". No help. The cycle stops at draining. Investigated and found small piece of glass wedged in the impellor. While having the interior cover over the impellor off, the motor for the drain impellor is humming, but the impellor does not move while engaged. The impellor will rotate by hand and stops at a point at 3/4 turn. I am hoping it is not in need of a new moto

... Maytag MDB9600A Jetclean II Built-in Dishwasher

I have a Jenn-Air JDB9910AWB dishwasher. The problem I am having is everything seems to work fine until the drain cycle. It sounds like the pump is frozen. After selecting the drain button you can hear a click in the control panel followed by a 1-2 second growl in the pump but it doesn't turn or pump. I am assuming the pump runs in reverse for draining? Is it safe to assume the pump is bad?

Machine will not drain when I advance the cycle by pressing the Cancel/Drain button. There was a report that there was some noise when the machine first failed.

Dishwasher fills with hot water. Float OK - water feed stops when full. Motor humms but no water spray (in all opperating modes). Cancel selection (with cancel button) and close the door. The water drains then the unit shuts off. Water feed OK. Drain Cycle OK. Looks like spray pump hung but do not know. Cannot find a reset button (as with disposal) or way to free hung pump motor. I did see glass pieces in the drain. Possibly a small piece hanging the motor.


If you found broken glass inside the machine some has likely migrated to the pump. about the only way to fix that issue is to remove the pump and either replace it or disassemble it and clean it out. ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDP01FL Built-in Dishwasher

Bosch dishwasher My Bosch dishwasher finished a wash cycle and was showing the "END" light on, however, the motor was still running as though it was stuck on the drain cycle (there is a gurgling sound from where the eater drains off beneath the filter. Subsequently turning the washer on just repeats the apparent drain cycle with a constant gurgling sound (it does not kick into wash mode). The number on the manual is & 258 (7705).

Something is causing the DW motor not to fire (so water is not sprayed around). It fills fine. It drains fine. I've tested the motor - it also works. I've tried all the various cycle choices; all do the same thing. Water fills but is not pushed around the tub (absolutely no motion from the motor, whatsoever). There was some debri down in the bottom, but I've cleaned it all out, wiped everything clean, and still no motor activation.

We recently bought a house with a Kenmore 363.16222100 (?) dishwasher. No manual. Monday night it didn't drain properly and leaked some water on the kitchen floor. The cycle had finished when we saw the water on the floor. We bailed out the excess water. I took off the drain cover and insert. I couldn't see an obvious clog problem, but cleaned it out. Then I tried a short cycle, interrupting it to shorten it. No problem. Water seemed to drain fine. I did find a part that looked like a straw and

The dishwasher pump sounds like it is trying to drain, even when the stop button is pressed and the door is opened. The only thing that stops it is turning the power off at the power point. However, when the power is turned on the pump continues. The wash cycle icon flashes, but the usual cycle indicator is not lit at all. The dishwasher will not commence a new cycle.

Broken dishwasher It started when my dishwasher flooded my kitchen. I drained it and turned it on, it was fine. then it happened again. I have drained it then when I went to turn it on again it just sounds like it is running with no water. If I put water into the bottom it will drain but it will not fill up.

I have a Maytag portable dishwasher. Lately it has been sounding like the top sprayer is working only sporadically. The cycle begins & it sounds like it doesnt begin spraying until halfway thru the cycle. I open it & check it & see it's not turning. I've cleaned out the holes the best I can. It does this with the rinse cycle also. THANKS FOR YOUR HELP.

Dish Washer, Electrolux Home Products, Model FDB2510LCC0, Serial NO: 7H34962223 Machine does not drain or add water. The machine has been worked for a couple of years. I checked the following: 1. Overfill Protector not stuck 2. Motor turns on and the machine cycles correctly 3. Since the machine has been running correctly the unit is hooked up correctly: hoses, garbage disposal, knockout plug. Again everything has worked and the motor does cycle and the machine will perform the different cycles
