Dishwasher does not want to drain

Hi there,

I am renting at a place with an old built in Kenmore dishwasher (I am not sure which model, it only says "Kenmore Ultra wash" on the front) and the water does not want to drain. I have removed the water distributor at the bottom and have found some paper and a fork around the edges of the circular drain, which I removed. However, the dishwasher still does not want to drain. I wanted to open it further, but I need a special tool to remove the screws and I thought I will ask advice first.

I would appreciate if you can help won't drain

    I have a non draining kenmore ultrawash as well. I did the same as this other guy and continued a little further with trying to dissect the dishwasher. I removed the piece at the bottom of the machine. The water then leaked out the bottom and onto the floor. I did not see anything that would klog or cause the water to not drain. Any suggestions?

Good thinking,first it would help if i knew the model # if you open the door it should be right there on the left side.has it ever drained for you? is there a new garbage disposer installed in the sink? the special screw is a torx.

My dishwasher won't drain. It is a Kenmore and about 8 yrs old

There is a panel tht separetes the top from the bottom you need to unscrew it. Place a pan under it after you see a little spout/drain hanging down that is probably fill with gunt what ever water that is in it will drain out clean it out , replace it after you've let the water run out. once you've screw it back see if your dishwasher is draining correctly.

Dishwasher does not want to drain

Make sure that the draining-hose is clean .... Try to put the draining-hose downwards .... it is possible that the pomp can not push the water high enough .... if the hose runs downwards ... gravity will help !
