Question about Kenmore 24 in. 15932 Built-in Dishwasher
Hello, I have a Kenmore Elite built in dishwasher; Model 665.15979992 , S/N FK10107927 , Stock # 15979 which won't drain completely. I checked for obstructions on the inside of the unit as well as the drain hose and both are clear.
Any ideas or tips would be helpful as well as an indication of the age of the unit so I may determine if its worth fixing or not.
Thanks for you help.
Lex Hi, we recently bought a used Kenmore elite dishwasher, Model 665.We hooked it up properly and when we turned it on it would not drain and the water leaked onto the floor. We never heard the pump kick in to drain the water. If any one has experienced this problem and knows the answer please help thanks
Hello. Are you using liquid or powdered soap? In some models liquid soap will foam up and the drain motor can't pump out bubbles. Foaming can also happen if you pre-clean your dishes with liquid soap used for washing by hand. If it is foaming, you can poor non-dairy creamer or cooking oil into the bottom of the unit while it is in the wash cycle.
If foaming isn't a problem then the water level switch may be bad, the pump may be not pumping out as quickly as it should or you may need to take the hose off completely to make double sure that there isn't anything in it.
Did you check the air-gap next to your kitchen sink faucet. If you don't have an air-gap it may be hooked up to the garbage disposal and if you don't have a high loop in your drain hose the water can run back into the dishwasher especially if the disposal backs up.

SOURCE: Dishwasher doesn't drain fully
Some model 665 DW have a check valve that is attached between the sump and drain hose that may have a blockage..... Remove the drain hose from the long plastic valve then carefully unscrew the check valve from the sump. Inspect for debris.
