Kenmore elite dishwasher runs until it is manually shut off by opening the door? My Kenmore Elite runs continuously until I manually drain (cancel) the cycle. Then I have to rewash with no soap to simulate the rinse and again manually drain (cancel) the cycle. This was a $650 dishwasher. I am not sure how to reset the controller or even trouble shoot for an error code. Any suggestions?

I have a Kenmore Elite dishwasher (2004) and recently it has been leaking internally at a very slow pace. When not in use it will slowly fill until the floor of the unit is filled and then leak onto the kitchen floor unless we press the drain button and then it drains completely. The water seems to be coming from the front of the washer, potentially from the door itself. The amount of leakage is barely discernible but will fill over the course of a 24 hour period. The dishwasher otherwise wo

My Kenmore Elite UtraWash Dishwasher won't drain completely. We have checked the hoses (water supply and drain connected to the disposal) - both are free of obstructions. We have taken the whole thing apart but can't get the plastic cover off to access the motor or "garbage disposal thingy" inside the dishwasher. All of the bolts were taken out, but it was still firmly attached. Didn't want to force it and potentially make the problem worse. Any suggestions before I call Sears Repair people

My Kenmore Elite dishwasher did not drain the water out of the bottom after the dishes were washed last night. Could I possibly have pushed a wrong button to keep it from draining, or do I have a problem? All the dishes were clean. Should I run it through another wash cycle?

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.
