Where is the filter on a Kenmore Quiet Guard 2 dishwasher?

We just moved in and inherited the Kenmore Quiet Guard 2 dishwasher. Works fine but recently dishes have been coming out dirty. So I went to wash out the filter but can't find it. Dumb question I'm sure but needs answering! kenmore model 665 Dishwasher doesn't drain fully and dishes are soapy. Think there is a clog?

    Unfortunately I have now replaced the cutter twice in the last 2 months and it still clogs up. It seems like fine threads clogging up the perforated screen on the back of the cutter. I will now pull out the pump and look at the impeller which is expensive. I think it may be coming apart and as the water recirculates these fine fibers of plastci(?) clog the the screen on the cutter. I have already had to replace the control panel, the detergent dispenser, and other parts over the last few years. It is quiet but has not been reliable.

I have a Quiet Guard 4. Same problem so will describe my solution.
1. Remove bottom basket. Remove top basket.
2. Remove bottom washing arm. Unscrew (Gently but firmly) the centre post. Lift arm assembly up and out.
3. Remove overhead conduit. One screw at back, one at top (Philips #2 bit). Rotate whole assembly 45 deg right (Clockwise) and lift off of centre post.
4. Remove centre post (Pull straight up). Remove 4 screws (Star T-20 bit). Lift whole assembly out. Pop off screen and clean.
5. Remove cap over cutter/chopper. There is a single screw at front left (under assembly removed in 4). Remove screw (Star T-15 bit) and cap (Needs some wiggling to free it up). Remove cutter and filter. It is on a spring loaded pin. Pull the cutter blade foreward and then the filter disc straight up. Clean thoroughly as it may be the cause of your problems.
Reassimble. Good luck!

Yes but that only fixes it once. The problem that the poster and I have is that this happens every few months. What is the permanent fix?

I have a Kenmore quiet guard 3 model: 665.74364k2 and serie F55202295. It is not draining properly. It works fine and cleans the dishes but when it goes to drain it leaks in my basement ceiling and vents.


i thought I responded to this.

make sure the air gap in the kitchen plumbing (if installed is clear). Also check the kitchen drain is not blocked. If using garbage disposer in sink, then make sure it is run before you start the dishwasher.

if you have an air gap vent in the kitchen sink plumbing then make sure it is clear. Also looks like the kitchen drain end is blocked. Pour some caustic soda into the sink drain, wait 10 minutes and run water into the sink.

If you are using insinkerator (garbage disposer) in sink, make sure it is run before you start the dishwasher.

My dishes on the top rack are no longer getting clean. I don't think any water is going to the top. The dishes on the bottom get clean but have a soap residue on them.

The IRONY of my Quiet Guard!! SO LOUD!!!!


Yes the wash arm can be removed to get to the sump area. Take the model number for your dishwasher and enter it into a site like partselect.com. There you can get a blown up diagram of the components that need to be removed to get to the cause of the grind noise. Usually a seed or some other hard object has found its way down there.
