I have a not quite 2 year old Kenmore dishwasher model #665.1322.(I believe built by Whirlpool) The motor has burnt out. That seems ridiculous to me when there is just my husband & I using it and I've had dishwashers in the past that have lasted 10 - 15 years. Anyways - we have no warranty so we thought we would try to replace th motor - but I can't find anything online. We live in south western Ontario - any suggestions of where we could find a replacement motor?

I have a Whirlpool model DU1055KJVQ1, Type 575-0 under-counter dishwasher which is less than 2 years old. In the last couple of weeks, it wouldn't start intermittently, and I would need to hit cancel on the keypad, and then restart. Now that doesn't work. When I try and start the dishwasher, it doesn't work. I press Normal for the cycle, heated dry for the Option, and then hit Start. The buttons light up for 20 seconds or so, nothing happens and then they go out. Any ideas?
