Question about Kenmore 24 in. 15932 Built-in Dishwasher
Hello, I have a builtin Kenmore dishwasher model number 665.15882. Just recently it has not been working properly in that it doesn't seem to be drawing water into the unit. I cycle it on (normal wash) and push start and it seems to go through the normal cycle with the sensing light being lit and the cycle timer is on. But, no water is ever drawn into the unit. Any ideas? Thank you.
Check the float.
There is a float inside the dishwasher but you can't see it. The small dome in the bottom has a float inside that activates a switch underneath by a plunger. Sometimes this float gets stuck in the up position. Take the bottom panel off and look directly under the dome for the switch and the plunger that activates the switch. Push this plunger up to see if it moves freely. If it moves then you need to check the switch then the water valve solenoid with an OHM meter. Next, use the meter to see if the timer is sending power (110) to the water valve.
If everything is good to this point then check the water supply. Turn the water supply off, disconnect the water line from the dishwasher water valve, run a small amount of water into a pan.
Hope this helps.
