Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

Kenmoor built in dishwasher

The washer is an old analog push button design, it works in all funtions except the water will not pump out after the wash cycle or rinse, I assume if the pumps water to wash then the pump is ok, what could cause this problem? Thanks

Hello, I am sorry that your dish washer isn't working. One of the biggest problems with these new dishwasher is they install the control on top of the door and the operational circuit board below the control panel. Inside the door is acceptable to moisture which creates all kinds of problems. It not the spray arm or the float, or the pump. it is where they put the circuitry to control the dish washing machine.


I hoping that all you will need is a push button control strip for this dish washer. moisture get in the micro switches and make them inoperable. These button in the control strip are hermetically sealed against moisture....for a while.



Remember, it depends on how long has the dishwasher been working and what will be the cost to repair your dishwasher. Dishwasher are really good for 10 to 12 years of service. I worked on a Kenmore that was 25 years old. I told the lady of the house it is time for a new dishwasher. I could have repaired it, but really it not worth it when it is this old. GB...stewbison

Hello there:
To be honest with you i would first try these solutions and see if they work cause a new machine would cost a lot of money.
But if you can fix yours it would cost a lot less so plese try these solutions that i have provided below first ok?
If there's no water entering your dishwasher, check these: Water-inlet valve Float switch Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it. Float switch The float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below the dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of the dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills the dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets caught or trapped in the raised position, the water can't enter the dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it.

Kenmore 665.16032402 wont run


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If the light flashes, pauses, and then repeats. When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (light flashes, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.

To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...

-heated dry

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Dishwasher quit during cycle.


Need a little more info.. anyway.. open dr will shut off dw...close dr.. push power button until power on... lights on, but nothing happen.. try holding down drain and one of wash cycle.. repeat holding drain w/other buttons until you hear drain pump running.. make sure you hold both buttons for a few seconds.. if your drain pump works.. then, you might have a problem w/your wash motor or something is stuck in the impeller area.

The dishwasher in my kitchen doesn't seem to drain and it seems pump is not working


My motto is "if it ain't broke, don't fix it.", but in this case we will make an acception. Check the inside of the washer for a float device sitting on the bottom. Floats can get stuck or bent over, make sure it goes up and down freely

Water not draining after last cycle


Arlo, sounds like your pump isn't working right. You should hear it pushing water about during the wash cycle. If not, check the filter screen on the unit first. Next, we'll have to talk about what to check ... pump motor or timer.
