Question about Dishwashers

Dishwasher not working

I have a Kenmore dishwasher , Model # 363.14375790, Serial #FT331026R. When I turn it to "Start" it does start, but no water goes into the tub. I haven't had to use it for a while. I read the owners manual for :"Dishwasher will not fill with water"& the Water inlet valve is not clogged , I'm not turning the dial too far. Could you tell me what to do. This happened once before & the repair man took off the bottom panel & turned something. Help Me!!!

Difficult to say for certain exactly what will fix your problem but it is not out of the realm of possibility that the inlet valve is sticking closed.. The repairman may have given it a tap to free it up so that when it was energized.. it opened and let water in for the wash cycle..Just because that valve wasn't clogged doesn't mean it wouldn't stick.. If you can access it .. try giving it a light tap on the housing when the DW is cycling.. Hope that gets you going..

My Kenmore dishwasher Model @ 587-1511590 goes on but no water is comming out ?


Do you hear a 'click' when it is supposed to start filling the machine--if not, then the water inlet solenoid has likely failed. Make sure the water is turned on under the sink and there are no kinks in the supply hose. Hope this helps!

Normal wash light blinking, d/w wont start


Wish I could solve this, as I'm having the same problem too. Normal light blinks not matter which wash button is pressed. Cancel light will light, but still NOTHING happens. Same model as yours.

Won't stop cleaning to go to dry


I have not worked with this Kenmore model, but:

It would be good to check the heating element to make sure it has not failed. Some dishwashers will wait forever for the water to come up to temp before it goes to the next cycle.

If the heating element checks out:
-IF it has a knob/dial that you turn to start the dishwasher on any cycle, that timer/controller has most likely failed.

-If your dishwasher does NOT have a dial as described above, then the main controller card (PCB) has most likely failed.

Dishes on top rack don't get clean


The following suggestions will greatly enhance the ability of your dishwasher to clean all of the dishes thoroughly:

1. Rinse all of the food off of the dishes before you put them in the dishwasher.

2. Run the hot water into the sink until it is as hot as it gets before you start the dishwasher.

3. Do not pack the dishes into the dishwasher, just put in a reasonable number without crowding or stacking them on either shelf.

4. Pull the top shelf all the way out to be sure that the water connection at the rear of the top shelf is connected. Sometimes, this connector comes disconnected preventing the water from entering the top spray assembly.

THese things should make a huge difference.

Good luck with this and please rate my answer. Thanks. Joe

Kenmore dishwasher 58715142400 fills but doesn't wash


Motor has gone out..just like mine...Make sure u have voltage going to the motor, (disconnect the plug from the motor) and use an electric meter to make sure you have voltage going to the motor. If so the motor has either gone out or has been blocked by something! If no noise except clicking then motor has gone out. Looking at about $150 for motor.
