Having problems with your Kenmore Dishwashers ?

My dishwasher is making a grinding sound when draining and i believe there could be something caught in the impeller, which is also stopping the water from draining completely. I took apart the pieces and 4 torque head screws but i believe there is one more screw to take out...which i cannot find? I have a Kenmore Elite Dishwasher turbo ultrawash model 665.7793k701

\012Its sounds like you are trying to take out the drain pump to clear the impeller of broken glass ect... Make sure your taking out he right one, because the drain motor is the small on one, the bigger pump is the circulation motor and if you disconnect that tube you will end up buying a new sump/pump assemble. The drain motor should have a clip that you push down and while turning the pump clockwise to take off. Once off you will be able to clean it out. Please look at my quick tip also for some common drain problem issues\012

Hello, I have a Kenmore dishwasher model 665.13832K600 - is there a trick to getting the lower spray arm off and is where the filters are? I do not have my owners manual - but I tried to unscrew it by hand and it gets stuck and I can't get the plastic screw out?! I believe mine needs cleaning as it is taking longer than usual to drain. Please help!!

We have an Asko 1385 dishwasher. It drains via the same drain into which our kitchen sinks drain. We had a blockage there. When that was fixed we noticed that the dishwasher does not drain properly and does not fill at all yet it seems to go through its cycle. I am wondering if a float switch or some such is stuck but I cannot find one in the bottom of the tub!

In between wash cycles, water seems to back up into the dishwasher. I had a plumber take a look at the drain and disposal in the kitchen sink to see if there was an issue there. He suggested to have appliance repair tech to come look and indicated that he believed that the issue may be the "cylianoid" valve. Does the this valve prevent water from backing up into the dishwasher after it has drained?

I have a dishwasher that hasn't been draining properly. For a while I could hit cancel drain cycle again and it would clear 1/2-1 of water out. But now that doesn't always do it. Someone told me to take filter out and see if it needs to be cleaned. Otherwise we have no other sink/plumbing problems with other kitchen areas. Please help! one handyman told me no use to work on dishwashers they are just throwaway with parts/service being so expensive.


The advise you recieved is correct. You will need to pull the unit out of the cabinet and disconnect the drain hose from the rear. Then remove the cover, There is a filter inside. If its clean then its time for a replacement unit. You could have a ... Whirlpool Dishwashers

We have a MDB4651AWW dishwasher. It is very loud, we have the bottom front panel that seals the dishwasher at the floor but cannot figure out how to install it. One way it does not fit, the other way it won't let the door open and close properly. The noise is terrible and it has been that way for three years. We don't believe there is anything wrong with the dishwasher, figure the bottom panel will deaden the sound. can you show us how it goes?

My SGS55M72AU/65 does not get rid of its drain water, although that wee pump in the bottom is clearly working (which I could see after removing filters and pump cover). There is no blockage near the drain pipe connection, so I infer there is a blockage somewhere inside the dishwasher, in a place I can't get to without further instruction. I've removed most of the drain water and pulled the unit out, so I could lay it on its side and start taking screws out. But I much prefer to have some guidanc

My Bosch dishwasher has several problems: 1) Water doesn't completely drain out and dishwasher kind-of smells when I open it -- I do keep the filter very clean. 2) The dishwasher takes HOURS to go through one load, no matter what the time says on the display and no matter what type of cycle you choose -- quick, delicate or regular. 3) The red display often displays something that looks like "2h" at the beginning of the cycle. 4) The place where you put the detergent doesn't shut.


Hi Kathryn .I think you have a defective pressure switch. The pressure switch is located near to the drain pump, and the device is used to determine when water had been drained completely.Also check the floater switch located ... Dishwashers

Sears dishwasher 665.15882000 part #8268296 fell off and I can't find the "screw" that holds it in place...probably went down the drain. Now dishes do not "dry" on air dry. The part that matches the number for replacement parts does not look at all like the one that fell off. The one I have is round and the replacement one showing looks like some funky ninja weapon. Will this work on my machine? How easy is it to replace this part?

F70 fault cleared the drain valve which had a "button" from the screw holes on the side of the dishwasher - still the fault comes on and the machine runs even though its not turned on. One of the sites indicated the drain pan needed to be dried out but when I took off the kick panel could not see a drain pan.


Obviously the machine believes the drain cycle is not complete. It is running the drain pump until the level it "sees" is all the way down.

My 2008 frigidaire 24" dishwasher model #FDB1050REC is not washing during the cycle. I have run the test cycle and the tub is filling up and draining but no washing is taking place during the wash cycle. The dishwasher has an electronic control board and therfore no mechanical timer. I put test leads to check for voltage on the power leads to the main washing pump, which I have already replaced with a new one, and I'm only registering a low voltage of around 10 or 11 VAC.

I have a 13 month old (Thanks Sears warranty!) Kenmore Portable Dishwasher Model 665.17769. It drains poorly, taking 2-3 times after load is completed running thru the ''cancel/drain'' cycle to clean it out. It is not getting dishes clean either, presumambly because the dirty water isn't being flushed out at cycle end and instead of rinsing with fresh water, it's still screwing with the dirty water. Manual doesn't offer any advice except to see if the hose is kinked (it isn't). I made sure nothi

My dishwasher (Optima G2420) had an error F13 for sometime. By turning it off and restarding it would work. But now drain/intake light flashes and nothing is happening. We have checked the triple filter, the filter where water comes in ect. It drains the water but it appears that it cannot take water in. There is a white unit that the intake water goes in and I think that might be the proble.

We live in an apartment and our hot point dishwashers timing is all off and i thought if i could fix it myself, i'd love to do that instead of calling our manager, i will call him, but if its an easy fix i'd like to try it out.. it will just stop in mid cycle, and you have to manually more it a fraction of an inch to get it restarted, then at the end it doesnt fully drain, and the drying takes forever, so if i cant fix it, i'll ask for a new one..


It might need a new mechanical timer (sounds like the timer is sticking) installed and the parts will cost money... so you might want to go the route of the manager. The dial that you turn to set the dishwasher is part of the mechanical timer. Someti ... Dishwashers

Need the wiring diagram for the front panel/door of the dishwasher. The wiring diagram in the owners manual does not provide adequate description of which wires connect where. My problem is that, in taking off the door, two wires became disconnected and I cannot tell where they should be reconnected.
