1 Answer

Loads and Drains water but doesn't circulate water when washing

Motor is humming but not turning? I did notice a rubber smell yesterday when I started it and turned if off. I've checked the drain and chopper and found a few olive pits and a small 1.1/4 inch piece of black platics (hard). Any thoughts? BJ

Bits of black plastic are probably the impeller, sounds like something got caught in there and destroyed the impeller. If you are handy then you can buy an impeller kit and fix it, if you are not handy then I would recommend buying a motor and pump assembly and just replace the whole thing as one unit. Impeller kits are less than $40, while the motor and pump kit is more like $130. Hope this helps.

I have an Asko D-3122 dishwasner. When it is started on a normal wash cycle it drains, fills, heats the water if necessary and then stops. It does not go into the wash cycle. I assume the circulation...


If there is no sound of the circulation motor then it is faulty. But if the circulation pump sound is coming but water is not circulating then you need to check the wash arms for blockage.

Refer this diagram for location of parts in wash system

KitchenAid fills and drains but won't wash


With a lot of such appliances, the pump motor runs one way to wash, reverse to pump out. Refusal to do this usually is a loose wire, poor connection in the timer, or a wire on wrong. Check the schematic carefully for that.

Whirlpool dishwasher wont wash


if the bottom tub is filling with water but not washing the issues is with the wash motor, some of this model use a start capacitor that can fail, if it has a capacitor on the side of the motor it may have failed but are difficult to diagnose but are cheap to replace so worth trying, if this doesn't help or if it doesn't have a capacitor then the fault is with the wash motor.

Gene, I have a Kenmore Elite model # 665


Hey Steve,Sorry it took me so long to answer i was offline and my add is not supposed to displayed when i am off line so sorry about that.
Now then on that dishwasher with the hum and no water circulation it sounds as if the main wash motor is jammed up for some reason it could be that the motor itself is defective or as simple as something such a piece of debris such as broken glass or almost anything caught in the motor causing it to not turn on,by disassembling the wash motor you can see if something is caught in,if nothing is caught in its a (sorry to say) the motor itself thats bad and would need to replaced.The reason the water drains even though it will not circulate is because of the separate drain pump that is working Please reply back after disassembling the pump to check for debris if ya need further assistance.
Thanks for using Fixya.Com,GENE

Kenmore Elite 665.17053400. Powers up ok, fills up with water ok, but wash cycle won't start. I can hear the motor trying to turn but sounds like its seized up. If I cancel the wash, the machine drains...


This dishwasher has a very sophisticated wash system. In order to improve the wash efficiency it uses a chopper and a soil sensor. It is very likely the chopper assembly is clogged which is blocking the water from circulation and straining the wash motor.

See this diagram. Item 6 is the chopper. Worst case is the pump motor needs replacement. This is item 10.

Good luck

Kenmore dishwasher fills with hot water but will not wash, just a faint hum. goes through cycle, drains fine, like motor doesn't turn on.


The faint "hum" sound is your wash motor trying to turn on. You either have a piece of glass/tooth pick/ ect.. or a worn out bearing. Its time to change your wash motor. If you do a DIY you can save money over having a service man come out and charge about the cost of a new one.
Best of luck! Please rate me a 4 if that was helpful.

All of a sudden, the dishwasher motor is making a loud noise. What might be causing this? Approximately 7-10 years old. Model # 665 15595792.


Hi.

First of all have you noticed whether the noise happens through the wash cycle or when it drains the water?
If its the former then it will be in your wash motor, the later in your drain pump.

Have you noticed whether a drinking glass was cracked or broken when you emptied your dishwasher?? if so it could have found its way into the wash motor or drain pump.

If the noise is high pitched ( like a saw mill) it is most liokely to be a wash motor bearing thats failed. If so you are looking at a new circulation (wash) motor.

Hope this helps

Kenmore elite not washing dishes


Sounds like the motor is stuck. If your careful you can unplug the dishwasher or turn the breaker off, take the bottom panel off and reach in with your finger and spin the motor assembly.

Asko 1475 dishwasher - won't wash. Circulation pump?


Check your drain. It is dual purpose. It not only drains but, it also recirculates the water doring the cycles.

Motor just hums during the wash cycle. Put it in


OK, that piece of glass may have jammed the wash impeller. this will destroy the motor windings. you will need to gain access to the circulation motor asap.the impeller is attached to the motor that is housed within the pump casing(upper). try to manually move the impeller. if its stuck, try ot remove the obstruction.

It is possible that, the motor is already damaged to the point of no return. in this case, replace the circulation motor. your drain pump should be ran by a totally separate motor(wax).


**NOTE

Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.
