    The machine fills up with water but does not wash, I was told it was the motor. I want to be sure because repair man was charging £147 for the motor alone with no VAT and no labour total cost £218. I found the part direct from the manufacturer £87.25 and I know I can fit it myself. The repair man charged me £25 for taking the dishwasher apart.

    Ours does the same, but if it fills and drains its not the motor. Is it filling up to cover the seperator, if not its probably the inlet valve or water pressure.

    Dishwasher is several years old but works fine, I love it, no problems. Washed off the front of the door yesterday and now the dang thing won't run. Bet I reset the buttons somehow. The dishes were dry and dirty, the soap door had popped open but NO water. Also, can't het the "water heat" light to go off. It just flashes at me when I push it. Buttons appear to work.

    I screwed up something when I cleaned the glass - reprogrammed the buttons or soemthing. How do I fix?

Loud Buzzing Sound from Dishwasher


have you ever seen green led "Clean" light flashing? before or about the same time the buzzing sound started? and if so that would indicate that the control senses a fault in the temperature rise during the heating cycle and that the electronic control could be reset by initiating a service diagnostic cycle.(which is what you were trying to do) pls reread your manual there are times during that sequence that some buttons have to be pushed at the same time and within a certain amount of time..possible that your machine also has a bad timer which would give you a buzzing noise..if thats the case I would recommend replacing the cpu or control board..or the machin all together..The Kenmore Ultra Wash Quiet Guard name is sears but whirpool has the contract to produce all "kenmore products.hope that helps.

Kenmore Ultrawash Quiet Guard 5 making buzzing/grinding noise


I have a very similar dishwasher, with a very similar problem. I fixed it by removing debris from the water evacuator pump located towards the front of the bottom of the machine (the last motor before the drain hose. In my case, grape stems had clogged it up. Once emptied, it purrs once again. NOTE: don't disassemble the motor, just flush it out, there is an o-ring gasket that is a bear to re-install.

Kenmore dishwasher does not wash completely


I had the same problem. I switched to a gel dishwashing liquid and added about 1/2 cup of white vinegar to each wash cycle. (Just pour the vinegar in a cup, put it in the dishwasher and let the water fill the cup and disperse the vinegar.) Gradually you can reduce the amount of vinegar that you use. Worked for me, hope it does the same for you.

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.
