... Kenmore Dishwashers

I have a Kenmore Elite dishwasher (model 665.1315), and the dishwasher will run through the wash cycle as expected, but when it gets to the heated dry cycle , it doesn't appear to dry. It will then flash a fault code 81 (8 short flashes of the 'clean' light, pause, and then 1 more short flash of the 'clean' light, longer pause, and repeat the code). The dishes seem to be somewhat dry, but there is certainly water on the dishes and on the tub (there is never any water standing in the tub, and t

My Kenmore Elite model # 630.16302402 dishwasher isn't getting the dishes clean. A lot of food is still on the dishes after cleaning, especially inside the glasses. There is a white film on glasses and the inside of the appliance. I also just noticed that the upper arm isn't turning. There is about 1/2 cup of water standing in the drain area (not visible until removing the filter tray at the bottom of the appliance). Is this normal? The obvious problem is the upper arm but it seems like the rin

Have a Kenmore Elite Dishwasher (66513123K701). Was not cleaning dishes very well so we ran diagnostics on it and found a problem with the diverter motor (W10155344) so we replaced it. Now, the dishwasher is leaking from the diverter. There was a o-ring from the original diverter that we had to keep since the new motor did not come with it. Wondering if we should get a new o-ring/seal, but I cannot find mention of such a part anywhere. Is there a certain way to seat the o-ring? Is it ok to

My dishwasher (Kenmore Elite 665) doesn't use up all the detergent in the detergent cup - it always leaves a little behind at the end of the cycle. the dishes don't get quite as clean any more, either. I recently replaced my old water heater - we were getting lots of little plastic pieces in our faucet screens. I'm guessing that the water pressure may be low, and that it may be due to the same problem. Is there a screen-type filter that filters the incoming water, before it enters th


I don't believe you have a screen at any water feed and doubt that would be the problem. Once the washer fills the pressure to the cleaning arms is provided by the pump itself. I have this issue every couple of months due to hard water and the calci ... Dishwashers

My kenmore elite - model 8525879 is not getting dishes clean even with pre-rinse by hand. It is also leaving soap scum on glasses that is so bad, I had to hand wash my glasses with a brillo pad to remove the scum. The inside of the dishwasher is also covered with a white scum. The dishwasher is new. Not even a year old. I am using liquid detergent and rinse aid.

My Kenmore dishwasher, about 5 years old, is not cleaning well any more. Glasses look cloudy,and I assume the bowls and plates are not clean also, but that's harder to detect unless I hold them up to light. I use a rinse agent. What's the problem? Is it worth having a service person look at it or should I just get a new one? It's a Kenmore Elite ultra wash dishwasher.

Got a new Kenmore dish washer in mid January. Worked fine for a couple of weeks then so-called "clean" dishes were covered with a residue from, I assume, was the dishwasher soap. I tried cascade action pacs, then cascade powder and finally, cascade gel. Nothing helped. I ended up having to use SOS pads to get the "crud" off of the dishes and silverware, and use regular dish soap to hand clean each dish and saucer and bowl...as well as each knive, spoon and fork!

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? I've got water standing in the bottom of my dishwasher.


Yes , If the program controller has hung it would have skipped the drain cycle. So try to redo the cycle and see if the drain works, is not check the program controller and the drain valve/pump.- if there is food particles that have clogged and block ... Kenmore Dishwashers

I just bought a used Kenmore standalone dishwasher and ran it for the first time. The dishes on the top did not get clean and the soap did not come out of the closed soup dish. at one point I took a shower and was wondering if that might have influenced the water pressure enough to cause the problem. Is the soap supposed to open during the wash and could the poor water pressure prevent the top shelf from getting properly washed?
