Dispenser Lever

If the dispenser is broken and doesn't open or close properly the dispenser lever might need to be replaced.

Detergent Dispenser Cover

If the detergent dispenser cover is broken and the detergent dispenser doesn't work, the dispenser assembly should be replaced.

Wax Motor Actuator

If the dispenser will not release the detergent the actuator connected between the wax motor and the dispenser might be broken. Check the wax motor actuator and replace it if necessary.


Dispenser Lid

If the dispenser is broken and doesn't open or close properly the dispenser lid may have to be replaced.

Detergent Dispenser

If the dishwasher dispenser doesn't work the problem is often related to the release mechanism. If the problem is with the dispenser itself, it may be easier to replace the entire dispenser.

Dispenser Door Spring

If the dispenser is broken and doesn't open during the wash cycle the dispenser door spring may have to be replaced.

Dispenser Latch

If the dispenser is broken and doesn't open or close properly the dispenser door latch may have to be replaced.

Dispenser Door Pin

If the dispenser is broken and doesn't open or close properly the dispenser door pin may have to be replaced.

Dispenser Actuator

If the dispenser is broken and doesn't open or close properly the dispenser actuator may have to be replaced.


If the dispenser is broken and doesn't open or close properly the entire dispenser assembly may have to be replaced.

Wax Motor

There is an electrically powered device called a wax motor which opens the detergent dispenser. If the dispenser is broken and will not open to release the detergent, the wax motor might need to be replaced.


If the dishwasher dispenser doesn't work the bi-metal actuator might be burned out or defective. The bi-metal is a simple metal loop which acts as a latch for the dispenser door. As electricity is applied to the metal loop, the loop deforms and bends away from the latch, releasing it. If the bi-metal is burned out it won't deform or release the detergent door.

Dispenser Slide

If the dispenser is broken and doesn't open or close properly the dispenser slide may need to be replaced.

Dispenser Repair Kit

If the dispenser is broken this dispenser kit may need to be replaced.

Main Control Board

The main control board provides power to nearly every component of the dishwasher including the detergent dispenser. If the dispenser will not actuate the main control board might be defective. You should first check for more common parts. Many times control boards are replaced unnecessarily because the problem was not diagnosed properly.

Rolling trays need to be replaced

You're missing some digits for your Kenmore model number, so I can't provide with a direct link to the parts list for your particular model.

However, if you can get all of the digits, including the pre-printed ones, on the factory label, you can go to and obtain a parts list and line drawings that show all available parts for you dishwasher.

If you are having trouble determining what your model number is, you can also give Sears Parts hotline a call at (800) 252-1698 and they'll assist you with getting the model number and provide you with the part numbers for the replacement parts you're looking for.

The parts you're looking for are typically available. But if the cost of those replacement parts is more than 50% of the cost of a new dishwasher, you might want to consider if a better choice for you is replacing the unit, rather than spending more than $150-175 on trays and racks. Think about any future other component issues you might encounter, as they would likely put you in the price range of new Kenmore dishwasher.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Dirt left on dishes on top tray; bottom tray washes fine

The broken bottom arm is probably preventing any water / water under pressure to get to the upper arm.
After you replace the lower arm, you should have much better cleaning in the top shelf.
While you are in there replacing the lower arm, recommend you remove the filter under it and clean the filter and any debris you find. Be careful of broken glass!
Good Luck!

Top tray of Kenmore Quietguard3 dishwasher not cleaning!

The top rack is not cleaning because of low water pressure from the wash motor to the upper spray arm.
Assuming the top spray arms are clear of debris, remove the lower spray arm and lower feed tube to access the wash motor. Remove the 4 torx screws and the filter (accumulator assembly). Remove the torx screw and the inlet protector that covers the chopper assembly. Make sure the chopper is not broken (broken chopper will fill with debris and block water flow). While holding the chopper blade, reach inside the "D" shaped opening on top of the motor and spin the wheel/motor by hand in each direction to make sure either the chopper gear or the motor gear that drives the chopper is not broken. Replace the chopper if necessary (part # 8268383). If the motor gear is broken, replace the sump and motor assembly (part # 8535150). Remove any debris from the sump area in the process.
You don't have to shut the power off to the dishwasher because the door will be open, but if you feel more comfortable, do so.
Good luck!

Whirpool dishwasher, top tray spray unit does not spin

When the spray arm does not spin and even the powder does get mixed in, your probably have a failing pump/motor.
Before you call for service, try the following. Remove the lower spray arm and filter beneath the spray arm (and as always, check for plugged spray holes and for any broken parts.) Screws will need to be removed to to this.
Rinse everything in the filter, removing anything that does not belong.
With a flash light, inspect the whole sump area, looking for anything that may be blocking water flow. Watch out for broken glass down there!
Look closely at the impeller, looking for damage and that it spins freely and is securely attached.
While you are looking down there, inspect the heating element for damage/being broken/bumpy when it should be smooth.
Reassemble and run a load of those gathering dirty dishes!
The detergent ~should~ dissolve and clean effectively. BUT, if you have recently bought a cheaper, generic dishwasher powder, buy yourself a name brand powder like Electrosol or Cascade and only use it. The cheaper stuff is junk and will rarely clean even in perfectly operating DWs.
If all this does not work, then the pump motor most often the problem and needs to be replaced. When it is being worked on, make sure the heating element is checked. If I were replacing the pump motor, I would also replace heating element at the same time.

Top Tray clips on diswasher broken

I have the same problem and there is an inherent design flaw. You can normally buyt these at most outlets, however you can buy more than 4 to support the tray, or I have cut a small diameter aluminium tube (1/4" diameter) and threaded it through the tray from the side and into the sliding rails. It is not an ideal solution, but will last a lot longer than the silly grey wheels! Doi two bits ( one at the back and one at the front.) You have to play around a bit to get the drawer to move in and out, but it is much stronger than before. Good luck Charles in Australia

Soap does not seem to dissolve or clean

Probably a sticky dispenser door. Run for a few times with the dispenser open and put a tablet in the cultery basket
