Having problems with your Kenmore Dishwashers ?

I want to remove the white plastic wheel that propels water into the circulating arms. It is held with one screw which I cannot seem to be able to loosen. This white plastic wheel has 2 small holes in the surface which are perhaps there for some special tool to hold the wheel stationary in order to loosen the screw holding this wheel in place. Underneath this gray plastic housing is the heating element. I want to remove it in order to clean accumulated deposits of gunk.

My dishwasher made some really grindy, crunchy sounds the last time it worked. I unscrewed the float and checked for debris in it, nothing there. When I got that off, there was a circular black fan-type thing under it(the motor??), that spins around and seems to be held in place with only one screw. I tried to access underneath that, and it doesn't want to do anything but spin around. How do I remove that to check underneath?? I don't want to break it. I put it all back together and tried run

Screw drop Hi I was installing my new LG dishwasher and I droped a screw in the hole in the side panel where you can put a screw to connect to the side of your cabinet. There is a small plastic cover which I removed where you can screw a screw into the cabinet. However the head of my screw was too small and fell in the side panel. I can not get the screw out or see it now although I know it is in the dishwasher. Is there anyway of getting it out or will this cause a problem? Since it is in t

I followed 'Mindcell's' advice on fixing my Kenmore QuietGuard 4 dishwasher, and I managed to clear out all the food particles that have accumulated. I suspect that is probably why the middle spray arm has not been very effective. However, in my repair, as I was screwing in the star screw that holds the cover of the foodscreen (the lower most star screw), I managed to overturn it and break it. Thus, the food screen is only held by a plastic clip, and from what I can gather, pressure from a

Kitchenaid dishwasher - small pieces of food are left on otherwise clean dishes. Water level comes to about 1 inch below heater coil. I ran it without dishes (or soap) and added about a quart of water so that level came to about 1/4 inch below heater and that's when I noticed food pieces on drain surfaces (nylon filter under bottom spray arm unit and circular plastic "trap" surrounding it). Spray arms holes are clear and water is hot.


It sounds as if you figured the solution out. The holes in the spray arm(s) get plugged by small debris, (tooth picks, seeds, bits of plastic like candy wrappers, etc) and the water does not reach the dishes to wash and rinse effective ... Dishwashers

I have a Whirlpool dishwasher model #DP840DWGX2 I need to remove the filter screen, but it's either stuck or has a screw holding it down. I don't want to break the filter screen by muscling it off if it is being held in place by a screw. My owners manual does not explain how to remove this screen. Thank you


From what I can see in the service prints, it just snaps into place. I see the screen as a round screen on the bottom of the unit. If it doesn't come out fairly easily, just use an old toothbrush to scrub the crud loose. It will go through the dra ... Dishwashers

Loud grinding noise sounds like something small and hard is getting caught in some kind of rotary. The sound comes from underneath the dishwasher at or near the motor.

My dishwasher's top rotating sprayer keeps coming loose. The screw and plastic bearing fall out and I think that it has stripped out the end where it seats into the top of the washer. Any ideas on how to anchor this in? Adhesive? A larger screw? The plastic bearing is Part No. 568 and the screw is Part No. 569. If I replace the conduit arm (Part No. 585), will that give it a new, clean spot to screw in too? How difficult is it to replace this arm?

I have a hotpoint HDA2000G00WW built in dishwasher. The dishwasher does not run unless you press the plastic door under the latch area. I have adjusted the latch and that does not resolve the problem. I notice that the top three screws that hold the plastic eschucion are no longer holding as the plastic screw areas have broken on the eschucion. Do I need to replace the eschucion or can it be tightened some other way?

New kenmore dishwasher and it is sitting too low there is a quarter inch at hole at the top of the dishwasher under the counter. It seems to be tight in the space; can we cut off the metal bracket that screws in under the counter. That way we can raise the dishwaster the quater inch.

The soap dispenser on our Kenmore Elite dishwasher (SEARS part number 8558128) will not stay closed. The little latch mechanism appears to be working, but the spring on the lid's base keeps the lid wide open at all times. I have examined the pop-up dispenser lid to see if some sort of plastic tip held by the latch after soap is added is broken off- this may be the case but I cannot see any damage where such a lip may have broken off. Does the latch catch the lid by snapping onto a plastic lip? I


Yes its probably the little latch that holds the door closed thats worn out. ... Kenmore 15762 Dishwasher
