Improper model #. Sometimes letter"O" looks like zero or a "D"

There are so many different machines that I'd need the proper model # to help any more.

Unfortunately the valve that is in the back of the frig needs to be replaced. For some reason this valve that the main hose goes in goes bad and the water dispenser won't work. I had the same problem on my Frigidaire and had to replace the valve in the back.

Kenmore 17379 dishes are not clean after running a cycle


If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound. If it seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve.

Now, check if dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after the cycle is complete.
Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump.

Inlet valve continues to let water in when door is opened and when the float is up

The needle in the water valve is not seating all the way closed. Some thing has gotten under the seat sand or limed build up. The valve will have to be taken apart and cleaned or replaced. In either case you will have to shut the main water supply to the dishwasher to stop it from letting water in.

After spin clothes are still wet kenmore 110-20702990

If your clothes are still wet after a spin cycle it can indicate that you may have either a drainage issue and the water is coming back into the machine after the spin, or your drain pump has broken some or all of its impellers that force the water out. i hope you found this useful.

Waher won't spin

Either a bad lid switch or a bad direct drive coupling or a bad timer.
Fill the machine with water. In the wash mode observe the agitator. Is it moving back and forth? If no, replace the direct drive coupling.
If yes, it does move back and forth, with the lid closed, advance the timer to the spin cycle. If it does not spin, raise the lid then close the lid. Does it spin? If yes, replace the timer.If no, replace the lid switch..

Kenmore washer leaks water,

on the back of the machine there a two water inlet valves, these are electric solenoid valves and one of them is leaking.  You need to remove the back panel on the washer to replace this valve assembly.  It's a common easily obtained part.
