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.


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.

The washer was one last rinse and stop did't drain?


Generally a bad drain pump or a clogged drain pump or drain hose. Have a look and let me know what you find.

Smelly dishes from Kenmore Ultra Wash


If you post the model number of your dishwasher plus its approximate age (in years) I can help more.

But the most common cause is a weakening pump motor. On many dishwashers, the wash pump motor is also the drain motor. Replacing that motor / pump assembly will solve the problem. While you are replacing the pump, check the heating element to confirm that it is not shorted out or broken.

For now, add a cap full of bleach to the water _after_ the initial dishwasher fill cycle ends and the wash cycle begins. White vinegar would also work, but this will not fix your problem.

Good Luck!

I have the Kenmore Plus Quiet Guard, just wondering about filters as the water is not draining?? Anyone know?


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.

My dish washer does not drian completly


the water must pump uphill to the air gap. the last water in the line drops down the hose, and is in quantity equally to the volume of the hose from the bottom of the pump to the top of the hose. that flows to the bottom of the sump in the unit. if enough, it appears as residual water in the bottom. its ok.
