Question about Kenmore Dishwashers
Makes a howling noise when running. Took it apart and found two tooth picks. Put it back together, same noise. Took it apart again but I can't figure out how to get the protecter inlet off, I think there might be something else in there. I have the screw out but it won't move.

the larger motor housing underneath the unit is what moves the water around to wash, the smaller pump is the drain pump, if you don't hear that running it is likely in need of replacement. check your paper work for warranty, if it's out of warranty try to find a deal online and it's relatively easy to replace

Mine eventually "fixed itself". I think some debris got caught and eventually (5 cycles or so) got ground up and sent through the drain. The noise changed each time it got closer "flushing out"

I had the same problem where rubber gasket that seals the motor bearings leaked water into the bearing and rusted out the bearing.
I scrapped the motor into every little pieces and extracted the bearing and just replace it. Now it is quiet as a mouse.
You need a bearing puller to get the bearing out for about $20 and the bearing is $6.
During the repair i slightly bent the shaft and i didn't straightened it properly so it wobbles a bit. But it works and if really quiet.

I had the same problem, but mine leaked every time. I have a kenmore ultra wash dishwasher no. 665.15762. I took the bottom rotating sprayer off and found that the plastic piece under the sprayer had a few loose screws and the rubber gasket, under that piece, had blown out at the corner facing the overfill protection float. I took out all the screws and re-mounted the gasket in place and put all the screws back and tightened them. It solved the problem. I hope that this helps others.
