Question about Kenmore 17439 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Water tower The water tower came off of my Kenmore Ultra Wash III dishwasher. I cannot figure out how to get it back on. There is a gasket on the water arm. Does the water tower actually go on top of the bottom rack? And if so, then how?

Re: Water tower

I had the same problem finding a Water Tower laying in the bottom of the dishwasher. Solution is to simply lift the bottom rack and insert the tower into the center-most square hole. Twist the tower with the large lip on the bottom of the rack and the two plastic pieces will overlap two sides of the square hole. It will come lose again in time, but just reset it again.

How do you open the soap dispenser on a Kenmore Ultra Wash dishwasher?

Push the little lever sticking out of the dispenser.
Maybe you have some calcium or hardened soap that is holding the lid closed. some Lemi-Shine powder dissolved in hot water and use an old toothbrush to clean off the soap/hard-water deposits.

Water leaks from the bottom door

The gasket that surrounds the door will fix it. If that's what you ordered, it'll be taken care of upon installation.

Kenmore Ultra Wash dishwasher

check and see if you are getting ac 110 volts to your water vave when trying to start the unit. if no power check your breakers and /or the incoming power to your dishwasher if they are ok and show 110 voltage coming to the unit then you probably have a control board or touchpad problem which would need a little more detailed check out.
If you do have ac 110 to your water valve then you may just have a bad water valve. Because the washer has to fill first. Hope that helps!!

Water flow does not stop.

The water inlet valve has gone bad. Depending on what the water was either hot or cold I would be safe and just replace both of them. You can get them at your local appliance store or at They are located behind the back panel of the washing machine right where the hoses connect to the unit

Kenmore dishwasher, water not going through the jets

when you hear the motor running during the wash cycle, check to see if the washer is actually draining instead of washing. this would indicate a stuck open drain valve. (the same motor/pump that washes the dishes, also drains the unit)

Kenmore Ultra Wash III Dishwasher will not drain properly

From the sound of things, your dishwasher drains faster than your sink drain ( via the garbage disposal) can drain it off.. You may have a problem with the way your sink drain/trap is vented and there is too much back pressure to drain down quickly.. When you run water from your sink, does it take a long time to drain down or if you fill your sink up and drain it, does it drain slowly ? That may be your problem.. Hope that helps.
