Hello rpmhmmjuju
Welcome to fixya.
Iam Huuum

You said,the motor on our Kenmore dishwasher keeps sticking. I can start it and it may do 3 or 4 loads then stick again.


First try to throw the breaker of for 5 minutes and then on and see if that resets the system.

But more than likely its a bad switch in the control panel
that is intermittently failing.
That is a tough call . You need to call service!

HOW old is the dishwasher?

Here is a report I read recently!
Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old dishwasher
It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a dishwasher.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your dishwasher,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that dishwasher under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your dishwasher is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new dishwasher.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive dishwasher
seven or more years old .

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a dishwasher you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.


Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!

We have a Kenmore Elite 630.16304401 dishwasher, lately we are getting small black greasy spots on the plastic dishes, also same spots on the plastic parts in the sump where you clean the filter? We h


A couple of thoughts:

1) It could be a gasket somewhere starting to break down. Check your door seal.

2) Food particles could have gotten caught somewhere in the drain hose, or something, and then turned black with mold and bacteria, then when you wash, they get siphoned back into the dishwasher if the flap which composes the anti-siphon check valve on the drain hose is starting to stick open.

Try putting a cup of bleach in the top rack and run a complete cycle with no other dishes in it. Then, load up some plastic dishes and wash them as normal. See if that helps. If it does, replace your check valve.

Also, insure that your drain hose is looped up above the bottom of your sink to prevent debris from your garbage disposal backing up into your dishwasher.

Good luck and keep us posted!

Setting yourdishwasher temperature is done by your hot water heater. If you need to lower the temp, turn down thehot water heater. If you need to raisethe temp, turn the hot water heater up.

My Kenmore dishwasher starts to fill and then stops


I've got the same dishwasher....mine is 2 years old and used only 3 times a week and now the motor is burnt out. I understand that this unit is a Frigidaire and is one of the worst ..quality speaking. I guess that why they only provide an one year warranty. Unfortunately, we got a LEMON

Clean light flashing, won't let me start again


push "hi temp wash" and "heated dry" over and over again, it will reset and all lights will turn on,

if it does not work then more problems. Mine just did this I found this trick and it started to function but I think i have a motor problem as well since it only fills and drains now and makes a humming sound.

Kenmore Ultrawash Quiet Guard 5 making buzzing/grinding noise


I have a very similar dishwasher, with a very similar problem. I fixed it by removing debris from the water evacuator pump located towards the front of the bottom of the machine (the last motor before the drain hose. In my case, grape stems had clogged it up. Once emptied, it purrs once again. NOTE: don't disassemble the motor, just flush it out, there is an o-ring gasket that is a bear to re-install.

...all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle finish (1-2 minutes).
You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.

Kenmore Elite Dishwasher clean light ind flashing and won't start


That means the control sensed that the heater in the d/w did not operate 3 times in a row. so the unit locks out. First remove the kick plate and you may have to pull the unit out from under the cab, but check your heater. use a meter to see if it reads open, if so order a heater assy it will come with a new control replace it to. If your heater checks good press in sequence normal wash , heat dry ,normal wash,heat dry , normal wash , heat dry three times within 6 sec all the lights will come on then hit cancel. What that did is reset the control and clear that fault. Keep in mind that d/w does not heat it's own water your incoming water temp should be 120. the d/w will maintain that temp. when starting your d/w first turn on your hot water till it gets hot then start your d/w this insures your unit fills with hot water and not cold
