I have a Kenmore dishwasher model #17519200. I loaded it last night as usual and closed the door. I pressed the wash cycle I wanted and pressed the start button. I heard it starting to fill with water as usual. After it filled with water it should have gone into the wash cycle mode but it just started making a buzzing noise for about a minute or two then just stopped. I pressed cancel to drain it and it drains fine. I have kept trying to re-run it but it just does the same thing I described.

I have a Kenmore Ultra 15895 or 15891. It fills with water then doesn't run. It will continue through it's cycles, but stays full of water. If I hit cancel before it completes the cycle, the number 2 shows in the display and nothing happens. If I let it complete the wash cycle, it will sometimes start and wash properly.

My dishwasher was moved for kitchen rennovations. When hooked back up again it would not fill up. It will run through a cycle but no water enters. If I squeeze the rubber hose that leads from the electronic valve to the tub it gets hot indicating that I am forcing hot water through the line. If I pour water into the tub it will wash the dishes but at the final 6 minute point it will go no further, I assume because it is not getting rinse water.

I have a kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher, Model 15825691. We were recently hit by lighting. Once hit, the dishwasher started up.

Problems with Danby DW1899WP. My husband and I ordered it from Wal-Mart online and picked it up yesterday. We've read through the manual several times, filled all the appropriate receptacles, plugged it in, hooked it up to the water, loaded it, set it, started it, and it doesn't work. It runs the pre-wash rinse for about five minutes before giving a series of beeps, draining the unit, and switching straight to the dry cycle without actually washing the dishes. Help!

I used to hear the motor running from the start, but now I don't, just water filling up to what looks like overflow if I let it. I baile
