Can't find replacement rubber seal for sink attachment

My Kenmore portable dishwasher-176995, the Ultra wash III. The rubber seal in the part that hooks to the sink is broken, I am having trouble finding the replacement seal. It is all smooshed and stuff, so I'm not sure what it really is supposed to look like. Any ideas? Thanks

If it is on the hose then it should be a check valve.

Kenmore ultra wash III portable dishwasher. Model #1765991. Lower wash arm came off. How do I re-attach?


Hello. The lower spray arm screws down onto the center, round, plastic part (spinner) that has threads on the center portion. It's very loose and spins easily because it uses the water spray to drive it. At the top of the threads, there will be a flat piece of plastic. Set the spray arm down onto the threads. Hold the flat plastic area that sticks out above the arm with pliers. Spin the spray arm counter-clockwise while holding the spinner. It will thread itself down about a turn or so. Snug firmly--DON'T OVER-TIGHTEN the spray arm onto the spinner. Remember, it only uses water pressure to spin so it doesn't have to be "gorilla tight"! I hope this helps you!

MY DISHWASHER DOES NOT APPEAR TO BE CLEANING MY DISHES


Your sprayer arms may be clogged.
The upper arm attaches to a tube in the back of the dishwasher. If the support clamps come loose, the upper spray tube will not be flush with the tube and can't carry water to the sprayer arms. Also the sprayer arms can become clogged with paper remnants, bone fragments, or pieces of peeling. You'll need to remove the sprayer arm and flush it at your sink. If there is a jet that is clogged, tweezers will help remove the residue.
Finally, the bottom of the door INSIDE the washer often get covered with gunk. Be sure and gently wash the bottom of the door INSIDE. You can open the door, spray some window cleaner on the bottom and then gently brush away the 'gunk.' Rinse with hot water from a pitcher or your sink sprayer and this can eliminate some of the residue that is showing on your dishes.
I hope this helps. If it does, please come back to Fixya and rate my answer

Kenmore Ultra wash III will no longer stay connected to faucet after filling...what part should I replace the hose or the faucet adaptor? When we turn the faucet on to start up the dishwasher it falls...


if your adapter that hooks up to the faucet has 4 little white plastic jaws inside it then it can be rebuilt. there is a kit that replaces those 4 jaws, the spring, the attaching clip and the internal seal.. usually runs around 10 buks or so. if i was at the store i could tell you the part number without needing your model number, but any good appliance parts store should be able to locate them for you..
hope this helps,
best of luck,
ttfn

You can get an adapter from a local hardware store. I'd come equipped with make and model number and the screw on screen retainer piece from your faucet.

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.
