Question about Kenmore Dishwashers

Open Question

Kenmore dishwasher mod. #665.16912001

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.

SOURCE: Dishwasher not pumping the water out?

hi
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"

SOURCE: kenmore elite dishwasher noise

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.

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite Dishwasher - leaks from Overfill Protection Float

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.

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

I understand by reading your post (which indicates it is a Kenmore dishwasher) you appear to have a noise concern, however if you could verify the machine is indeed a kenmore and possibly provide the entire model number I would be much better equipped to help without generalizing.


Initialy based on your post, it could be more debris further down in the impeller or chopper, but it really depends on the style of the machine, model number is located around the door opening ...

Dishwasher makes a loud grinding noise when running.


Start by pulling out the lower rack. Then pull the nut off the top of the lower spray arm. then remove all of the visible hex head screws. lift up on this section. this should expose another level of hex head screws, then they should be removed and this section should be lifted up. once you reach the chopper blade, remove the obstruction, and put back together.

Lower spray arm won't spin


Sounds like you may have put it together wrong. I would just take the arm back off and make sure that it all fits together right. A little tip for you too. Dishwashers will clog up all the time with water deposits and food gunk. There are all those expensive cleaners out on the market but the best and cheapest way to clean them is with white vinegar. Simply pour it into the dishwasher when it is empty and run it on the pots and pans setting on hot. Always make sure to pre heat your water too by running the sink till it starts steaming. This will make it easier for your dishwasher to heat the water. If you don't, then when you turn on the dishwasher it starts to fill with cold water and has to heat it on its own. Run the vinegar though through it at least once a month or so and it will extend the life of the dishwasher. Hope this helps. Just try taking that arm back off though and putting it back together making sure everything is fitting properly. If you have any other questions feel free to ask me. Good luck.

Putting inside back together


I found the company website. There is a section on parts. In this section it gave you a schematic diagram of the inside. Very easy to put back together with a picture!!!

Kenmore elite dishwasher making loud buzzing sound when washing


I had the same problem with by Kemore Ultrawash after two years. The motor bearing went bad because the seal went out and dish water got to the bearing. If you are handy, this motor comes out after taking the dishwasher out. I was surprised how easily the motor came apart from the dishwasher, a good design. The motor has three screws that holds it together, I took them out and took the motor apart.
I took the old beaing off the shaft with a grinder, careful not to groove the motor shaft. I did, but just put some high temp silicone caulk in the groove before I put the new bearing on the shaft. I bought a new bearing on the internet, it is a 22mm x 8mm x 7mm. I bought one that went in a small engine, a quality one. I placed it on the shaft, put the motor back together and put the dishwasher back together. It has run quiet and great for many weeks now. I expect the dishwasher may last many years now, because the bearing I took out was a cheap aftermarket one, and the new one is vastly superior in quality.

Good luck and fire away with any questions. I love this dishwasher and am glad I could fix it for 19$ and some of my time.

Dishwasher will not drain


We took it all the way apart and cleaned it really well in the bottom of the dishwasher. Then we put it back together. Then we removed the hose from the disposal and suctioned it with the wet/dry vac to remove any clogs, then put that back together.

Ran dishwasher with Tang in both powder cups to clean it, and it's running fine now.
