Belt, Water Pump

Although few dishwashers have a water pump belt, if the dishwasher won't drain there might be a worn or broken water pump belt. After removing the lower kick panel the motor can be seen in the front, the water pump belt is on the bottom of the motor.

Drain Pump

If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain pump might be defective. Test the pump motor with an Ohm meter. Drain pumps are not repairable, if it's defective it will need to be replaced.

Drain Impeller

The drain impeller is attached to the pump and pushes the water out of the dishwasher, through the drain tube and into the garbage disposer or drain line. If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain impeller might be broken or worn out. Replace both the impeller and seal at the same time.

Pump and Motor Assembly

If the dishwasher won't drain, the pump and motor assembly might be defective. If the motor runs during the drain cycle, check for a blockage in the drain line. If the motor won't run during the drain cycle or if it just hums when it should be running, the pump and motor assembly might need to be replaced.

Clogged or Improperly Installed Garbage Disposer

If the dishwasher won't drain and the garbage disposer was installed recently, the installer might have forgotten to knock out the drain plug from this disposer. All garbage disposers are sold with a solid plug in the drain tube for situations where a dishwasher isn't connected. However, if the dishwasher is connected, the plug will need to be removed. If the disposer wasn't replaced recently, remove the dishwasher drain hose from the disposer and clean out both the fitting on the disposer and the end of the drain hose. These are the most common places to find an obstruction if the dishwasher won't drain.


Drain Hose

If the dishwasher won't drain the drain hose might be clogged. Remove the drain hose from both the dishwasher and the sink drain to clean it out. The most common place for an obstruction is at the garbage disposer.

Check Valve

If the dishwasher won't drain the check valve might be stuck closed. The check valve is a device which prevents water from returning to the dishwasher after it has drained. If the valve gets stuck closed, it will prevent the water from draining. The check valve is located in or at the outlet of the pump that the drain hose attaches to. Sometimes the check valve is accessed from the inside of the unit depending on the model.

Check Ball

If the dishwasher won't drain the check ball might be stuck. The check ball is a small plastic ball in the check valve which prevents water from returning to the dishwasher after it has drained. If the ball gets stuck, it will prevent the water from draining also. The check valve is the device that the drain hose is attached to on the dishwasher.

I would like to know where is the plug for dihwasherdrain plug located ot he garbage disposal


It's not guaranteed that your particular model will have a dishwasher drain nipple, but it does, it'll be on the side, near the top of the machine. If the disposer is new you must knock out the plug inside the nipple before connecting a dishwasher. If the disposer doesn't have a nipple, you can get a piece of pipe to fit to the non-disposer side of the sink where you can connect the dishwasher drain hose.

Dishwasher doesn't drain


The drain motor might be worn so it still pumps out fairly well but will let wtare back in once it stops pumping. It may also have something stuck in it so it ot is worth removing and cleaning through with a good degreasing cleaner.

It isnt cleaning ot rinsing properly


Make sure the drain hose has a clear path. Also where the hose connects to your sink drain,if you pull off the hose to check the connection for a blockage have a empty bucket handy to catch the water. If the drainage path is totally clear and it still does not work right then the water pump is weak. I hope this helps you.

Dishwasher will not turn on


Bruce, It would be great to know the model number of your your Kenmore Ultra wash dishwasher, please look on the right hand side of the door for a model/serial number if possible.
First steps: With no power, please check how the dishwasher gets power. If it is plugged in to an outlet under the sink, please confirm that it is plugged in fully. If that does not fix the problem and if it is plugged in, remove the dishwasher plug and plug in any lamp or small appliance and make sure it turns on.
If no power at the outlet, check the house circuit box for a tripped breaker/blown fuse. Also, check if any of the outlets have GFI (Ground Fault Interupt) circuit protection. Reset that outlet (even if it is not not the same outlet as the dishwasher is plugged in to.
Next steps: If the dishwasher is connected to a live circuit but still does not work, a component in the dishwasher has probably failed and a service call is in order. Or replacement of the dishwasher, depending on its age.
Please accept this solution soon after walking through the steps - or add a comment with an update and I will try to help more.

You will have to test the solonoid electrically now its probably getting juice and the solonoid may have failed. You can get just the solonoid ot the entire pump assy for a little more.
