Question about Kenmore 24 in. 16039 Built-in Dishwasher
The dishwasher fills with water as it is supposed to but when the wash cycle tries to start all the machine does is hum. It's a sound not unlike a stuck motor. If I hit cancel the machine will drain as it should. Water preasure and motor both seem to be operation normally. Prior to this the "Clean" button was flashing and I reset it using a sequence found here. It worked fine for several months and now it has started this new problem.
The hum is probably the main pump powered up but not turning. the pump is an induction motor and a usual fault is the motor capacitor. try to access it, find the value of the capacitor and replace. it is a cheap part
