Hello Teri,
If you have access to a Home Depot or Lowes or any other home goods store, they should be able to provide a hose for you .. You may need to use a hose clamp to attach it but most of these types of home goods stores sell all the components for this... Since its a Kenmore ( you may be able to go to Sears and get a drain hose kit..but most drain lines are pretty much the same as long as they have the right ID and you have hose clamps.. Hope this helps you..
Regards,
Rick

Is the drain line going over an upper edge before connecting to the sink drain line? Also try to make a rinse with white vinegar.

I have a Kenmore ultra wash model 665, stock# 15951. When the tub starts to fill the water runs out the drain.


This means there is either an air gap in the drain hose or the drain hose loop is less than 32" high preventing back flow

Kenmore Ultra Wash 15812990 won't drain... I have already checked the connection between the dishwasher and the house drain line and the issue is above that. Someone suggested I clean out the food...


I removed the kick plate and unhooked the hose that connects to the bottom of the dishwasher. When I didn't get a gush of water, I knew my problem was higher than that. I took a pair tweezers and stuck it up the spout and found nothing. So I attempted to drain the diswasher with the hose unhooked and got some water to come out. I did this several times and apparently flushed down a large piece of rubber--either from a water bottle or a broken piece from inside the dishwasher. I removed that piece and had pressure when the drain button was activated. So I hooked the hose back up and ran a rinse cycle--and it drained fine.

Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher Problem


there is no real way of checking the keypad. Not with a meter but if you push normal wash for example and it does not respond this usually means that you have a bad keypad

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.
