Having problems with your Kenmore Dishwashers ?

Kenmore Elite 665.17053400. Powers up ok, fills up with water ok, but wash cycle won't start. I can hear the motor trying to turn but sounds like its seized up. If I cancel the wash, the machine drains out the water ok. Does this sound like the moter is shot and if so, what should I expect to pay to have it replaced?


Answers :

This dishwasher has a very sophisticated wash system. In order to improve the wash efficiency it uses a chopper and a soil sensor. It is very likely the chopper assembly is clogged which is blocking the water from circulation and straining the wash motor.

\015\012See this diagram. Item 6 is the chopper. Worst case is the pump motor needs replacement. This is item 10.

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

Kenmore 17369 When cycle starts... it sounds terrible (crackly sounding).... doesn't sound like the water is coming into the dishwasher. If I add water to the machine during a rinse cycle...it will wash and drain on its own.... Then I hit cancel. Please help.. I can't locate the owners manual.. Do you know where I can get one.. I understand that you can open the bottom up and see if there is anything lodged in the bottom of the dishwasher. Please help! thanks Cheryl

My kitchenaid KUDI01DL dishwasher began making a lot of noise while running, then subsequently decided not to circulate the water around to wash the dishes. It sounds like the motor is running (maybe) but there is no washing action going on. The machine will fill, drain and heat the water but nothing else. Is it likely that the pump/motor assembly has ceased to function properly? thanks...


The problem is very likely in the chopper and/or somewhat possible in the impeller. The chopper is replaceable from the front. Disassemble the pump, the chopper will be on its left side under a cover. That cover is kinda tricky to remove (remove all ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDI01DL - Multiple Color Built-in Dishwasher

My kenmore washing machine fills with water but will not wash..it sounds like its doing something then it stops after a while i hear it drain and then stops again..water doesnt spray..I let the dishwasher run for a while but dishes werent even wet


Often these work by reversing the motor which has two pump impellers. One direction will pump the water out and the other will pump it through the spray bar. IF the one pump impeller has broken then that would explain your symptoms. \015\012 ... Kenmore 24 in. 16193 Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

Dishwasher wont fill with water. just before it stopped filling i was turning the dial (a lot) between the wash cycles back and forth to attempt to get it to fill and drain (I didn't let it go through a cycle). We also removed the hose from the machine as it had split and replaced it and we had the machine tilted on it's side. the dial still clicks round but it sounds like the pump is going and it doesn't seem to be filling with water.

Hi. I suspect that the timer mechanism will be the culprit here, but i recommended to inspect and test the water inlet valve, before replacing the timer. The valve is a known problem area, as well. Follow the valve inspection procedure below, careful ... Fisher DS603W / DS603B / DS603I Dishwasher

Defy dishmaid dishwasher does not start wash cycle. Several attempts to reset dishwasher has been done. Machine has been unplugged for several days and switched on again and still does not work. The start/stop switch have been kept in for about 5 - 10 seconds to reset. When the machine is set to do washing, the water enters the machine and wash light shows green and machine remains like that with water inside the machine. The start/stop button is again pressed for 5 -10 seconds to drain the wate

I have the Siemens SL84A305UC Dishwasher. All of a sudden it stopped cleaning dishes, but everything sounds normal and it fills and drains water, and sounds like it is completing the cycle. In the past when I opened the door while it was actively washing the water would spray out aggressively. Now, when I opened it while it was supposed to be washing I see just a small amount of water coming from the bottom wash blade, and not even enough to turn the blade very far. I thought it was just a c

KitchenAid KUDL03IVWHO Machine seems to stop after the initial water fill. There is power to the machine, the door latch circuity is working, all the buttons on the control pad light up. After selecting any of the wash cycles and pressing start, the washing light illuminates and the machine fills normally to the point where the fill valve stops the inflow of water. At this point the machine stalls, it does not start the cleaning process. I can press cancel and the machine drains normally. I e

Holding water There is water in the bottom of the machine after the cycle is done. There is definitely draining going on throughout the cycle, but it's not draining completely at the end -and the water that is left is murky. Spoke to a friend who tells me it sounds like the dump valve, but in checking on line, that doesn't seem to be a part that even exists any more. Do I need to buy a new dishwasher? This was not in the budget this year... Thanks for any advice! Nancy
