Question about Kenmore 16602 / 16604 / 16609 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Kenmore 587 Our Kenmore 587 drains water - rusty looking water - all over the kitchen floor. Is there something we can do to fix this? It was in our house when we moved in last year and has behaved itself up to now. Thank you, Nora Brownlie

Re: Kenmore 587

You may try the rubber gaskets and fasteners that attach your heat element through the bottom of the dishwasher body. This is the only full penetration of the shell involving metal that I see. You could see these fasteners if you remove the dishwasher from its current position, rotate it clockwise on its side and see the two cheapo pressed metal nuts on threaded studs that have wires attached. These keep that black metal loop on the bottom (inside the washer) in place. Remove wires, unthread pressed metal fasteners, check heater element for the rust issue (replace if needed) and reinstall new rubber gaskets and fasteners. Hope that helps!

Well i have a Kenmore dishwasher and for some reason the water won't drain and it well runs all over my floor how do i fix this problem?

Something is blocking the drain. Could be anything from a pinched hose to blockage in the drain system. Requires disassembly of the hoses and checking till the problem is found and repaired.

Dishwasher leaking water on the floor

Check the drain hose connection under the washer. make sure the hose hasn't separated form the drain housing. if the drain hose is not the leak spot, move on to the water valve assembly. check the connection there thoroughly. check the seals on the connection hose as well. if all checks out, this will most likely be a faulty water valve assembly.

Will not drain

There maybe something stuck in the pump or the pump is bad. I have also seen obstuctions in the drain hoses comming from the pump causing it not to drain properly.

Kenmore built in dishwasher drain quit working

if it looks somewhat like a elongated and cropped figure 8 it is what we around here call a clutch drive. if it looks like a 6 point star, it is a torx drive.. Be aware, the screws holding the guard in place may also be holding the pump in place under the unit. if so removing the screws would allow the pump to fall off the bottom of the unit.

If the unit washes, the motor and pump are working (the same motor/pump that washes the dishes also drains the unit)

if the motor is not running during the drain cycle, it is most likely the timer or a connection to the timer

if the unit is not running at all, it could be the motor or timer

if the motor/pump is working, I would first ensure the drain line is not clogged (pump may be trying to drain the unit and forcing the water out were ever it can due to a blocked drain hose, this would explain the water on the floor. I have found that when a drain line is blocked, it is usually blocked where the drain hose connects to the drain pipe under the sink.

let me know what you find and we will Fix Ya.

You have a restricted drain in your sink, not the dishwasher. Water is unable to go down drain fast enough and is backing up.
