Kenmore 665.15522/15529: dishwasher runs but no water flows anywhere

I just got one of these from a friend for whom the dishwasher worked fine for last month or so. I just installed it and tried to run it but it isn't pumping any water into the dishwasher. I've checked the hose that leads into the valve at the bottom and it is fine. On power up, all that happens is the motor/compressor spins and no water is pumped. Could it be a faulty inlet valve or what else can I do to try and figure out what is wrong with it?

thanks!

Your inlet hose probably came loose on the left side of the dishwasher. If you pull the d/w out 6 inch. or so you will see the s-shaped hose going to the inlet port on the tub. Make sure it's not pinched or leaking..Catriver

SOURCE: Dishwasher fills w/ water, does not wash, but does drain.

Joel, it's hard to tell whats going on here without the full model number. The number you posted should start with a 665, 363,587 or 464.  Here is a couple of things to look for.  It sounds like you have a seperate drain pump. Remove the bottom toe panel and hopefully there will be a tech sheet behind it.  Check the harness to the motor itself.  You want to verify that there is 120V going to it when the wash motor should be running. If you hear the motor humming and kicking out on the overload, then we can assume you have something stuck in the impeller or the motor is bad itself. The tech sheet will give you a diagram for the hot and nuetral.  Check the float switch inside the tub, it should move freely up and down. This is a safety device to insure the dishwasher does not overfill.  If this is a 665,  there will be a start capacitor on the left side of the wash motor.  If one of the wires came off the cap,  the motor won't run.  Regarding the door switches,  if you have 120V going to the motor during the wash cycle, you can assume the door switches are o.k.   Hope this gets you started in the right direction...Catriver.

Yeah, I have a similar problem. I tried to go into a suggested diagnostic run, but that didn't yield anything. I tried pushing the Sani-Rinse and Air Dry buttons back and forth a number of times. Didn't help.
At first I thought the lock-on had accidently been engaged, but disengaging the "child lock" doesn't help. The lock-on light comes back on and sometimes blinks rapidly. I"ve counted around 7 rapid blinks at times and 3 rapid blinks at other times--in case that makes a difference. The control panel doesn't work--in other words, the dishwasher does not start, even when I can successfully get other lights to come on. I don't want to spend >$100. for a new control panel if that is not really the problem.

Step1
Inspect the door gasket. As it ages, the gasket can crack or become hard, preventing it from sealing completely. 
Step
2
If the gasket appears solid, adjust the door latch so the door seals tightly. Loosen the screw that holds the door latch to the cabinet. Push the latch in slightly and retighten the screw. Test the door and readjust the latch if necessary. 
Step
3
Replace the gasket if water continues to leak after you've tightened the latch. Most gaskets are held by compression in a groove on the door or on the dishwasher cabinet. 
Step
4
Pull the old gasket out of its groove, using adjustable pliers (see illustration). Take the gasket to an appliance store to get a replacement. 
Step
5
Soak the new gasket in warm water to soften it, then press it into the groove. Start at the top, then work your way down the sides and across the bottom.

Kenmore Dishwasher model 630.1390 is starting it's cycle but then indicating it's complete less than 3 minutes later. Occasionally it runs through to completion, but usually not.


sounds like the timer is bad, or intermittent, might be cheaper depending on age to replace the whole thing. parts ( esp timers which are main points of a dishwasher are costly.)

Water in bottom of kenmore elite ultra wash dishwasher


you must check the filters that are at the bottom under the spray arm
then you must start and then hold down cancel or stop and it should kick in the automatic water discharge mode and activate the water pump if this does not work you need new dishwasher pump installed which can be found online by googleing your model number. gut if this all works then the small flapper thats internal on the pump isnt sealing and allowing water to flow back into the bottom. last but not least you might need a new control board.

My Kenmore Portable Dishwasher model number 665.17769K600 will not fill with water, I have to manually fill with water and it will then work. What could be causing this?


Hi



When the Dishwasher is not filling in, you'll need to check for the water inlet valve, the filter screen and the float switch/assembly. Also check for the float assembly inside the dishwasher. When water is filling your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages.
If these are fine then it's due to Water Inlet Valve. Use a multimeter and check for the continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly.

Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

I bougt a kenmore 18" dishwasher, the dishwasher


Hello,
Sounds like the water is either off or a flood safe hose is being used. The valve is energized and water is not flowing in, that is what the humming noise is.

No water


Two things to check. First see if anything is holding up the float inside the tub. Located on the bottom right if I remember correctly. I had a fork fall off the rack and do the exact same thing by getting lodged under the float. Second, if there was work done on the plumbing, some debrs may have gotten into the line and clogged things at the inlet valve. You may have water flowing through the inlet line, but maybe clogged at the valve. Need to take that off and check. While you are down there run the dishwasher through a cycle and test voltage at that valve. Also could be the valve or the control board.

Water will not stop running into the dishwasher. Maytag Dishwasher pdb1100awe


If the water flow on your Maytag dishwasher does not shut off automatically, then there is probably a faulty float switch, or the timer may be temporarily stuck on the "fill" command, or the water inlet valve could be stuck open. To determine if the float switch is the problem, you will need to test them with a multi-tester
