Re: Kenmore 24 in. 16182 / 16189 Built-in Dishwasher
Dedra, you should call for factory service on this so you don't void the warranty. You could have a couple of things going on here. If your model starts with 587, you have a seperate drain pump on this model. The impeller in the pump could be jammed with something or the control module might not be sending power to the pump. The fact that it operated normally the first two times you used it leads me to believe that the drain lines are ok. I have found debris caught in the impellers from the factory on some of these new 587's. Best to call for service, all costs are covered...Catriver..post back.

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.
I would suggest removing and cleaning the filter sometimes debree and build up of small particals can stop it from draining. Clean the filter in hot soapy water and then replace it in the dishwasher and run the dishwasher through a cycle, this worked for me.
Sounds like your drain is clogged. The drain should be located just below the blades inside the dish washer when you pull the lower rack out. If you can clean it from the top end, that could be a simply fix. Otherwise you'll need to pull the dish washer out and clean the drain from the bottom.
Also, check your Blower Fan to make sure it is still running.
If you're sure it is heating the water, then it sounds like the wash motor/pump has failed. If you've worked on washing machines and/or dish washers before, this is potentialy a DIY job - the Haynes Dishwasher manual is very good, and parts can be found on the internet.
The reason for cheking it is actually heating the water is that the symptoms sound very similar to those of a failed heater = fill, pause, empty, stop usually accompanied wth an error code. Error code will be presented by a number of flashes of a lamp, or a number on a display panle depending whch machine you've got.
I had the same problem. I took out the filter and cleaned it, scooped out as much water as I could and poured some sink unblocker into the bottom of the washer, followed by some hot water. After leaving it a while I took the plastic mesh cover off, and removed and cleaned all the bits I could (will be different on different washers). Then I put it all back together and ran a quick wash, and it worked. I did a couple more washes with it empty in case there was any cleaner still lurking. Result - one unblocked (and sparkly clean!) dishwasher. Hope this helps!
It sounds more like a failed pump.
Does it circulate the water while washing dishes?
You might check the junction where the dishwasher connects to your drain under the sink.
Often, they empty into the garbage disposal.
The inside of that junction has a tendency to clog with food (especially grease) and the pump of the dishwasher doesn't produce much pressure, it is more designed for volume.
In my case, I had the same problem until I realized the drain hose was not looped high enough. Once I looped the drain hose higher than the dishwasher, the problem went away and it washes dishes perfectly.
When the drain hose is installed too low, the water in the machine will only stay as high as the hose is installed because of the laws of physics.
The same applies to laundry machines - that is why the drain hose is set to drain from a higher point than the drum of the washer.
Check first that the filter located inside the machine (on bottom) is clean. In case it clean - The problem is with the pump. It could be a blockage between pump and the tub, or just a defective
pump (The pump takes suction from the tub and forces water up through the spray arms, which spray the dishes. The water then simply drops back into the tub for recirculation).
Good luck !!
