SOURCE: No clean dishes

Internal filtersEvery dishwasher has some type of filter to keep large food particles and foreign objects away from the pump assembly:

  • Most modern dishwashers have self-cleaning filters that don't need any routine cleaning.


  • Some have filters in the bottom of the dishwasher that you need to periodically clean. You don't need any tools to remove the filter, and cleaning it is easy. Consult your owner's manual to determine which type you have and its maintenance requirements.
If your filter is clogged, it may be causing the cleaning problem.


Drain valve

Some dishwashers have a valve (or gate) that should open only during draining. If debris lodges in the valve, it can't close properly, so water drains out during the wash cycle. Most dishwashers drain into the garbage disposer. If yours does that, listen for water flowing into the disposer during the wash cycle. If you can hear it then, the drain valve may be clogged.

Spray arms

There's a spray arm at the bottom of your dishwasher--it may have a tall spray tube mounted to the center of it. There may also be a spray arm located directly beneath the upper rack of dishes and/or above the upper rack.

If debris is blocking the holes in the spray arms where the water comes out, it could cause cleaning problems. Regularly inspect each of the spray arms and clean out the holes as necessary.

Detergent cups
Dishwashers don't perform their best if detergent is introduced only at the beginning of a cycle, so add detergent to both parts of the cup.

If the detergent cup isn't opening, see the "The detergent cup doesn't open" section, below.

Note: Dishwashers are usually wired directly to the home’s electrical system. To disconnect the power, switch off the circuit breaker or remove the fuse for the electrical circuit the dishwasher is attached to. Try to turn the unit on after disconnecting the power to be sure you were successful.

CAUTION: If you’re not sure you’ve shut off the power properly, DO NOT CONTINUE. Call a qualified appliance repair technician to complete the repair.

SOURCE: water will not drain

If the hose is connected to a food disposal system, which was recently installed, then you will have to puncture the hard plastic piece inside the hole where the hose was connected to the disposal.

Disconnect the hose and drain the hose as much as you can.

MAKE SURE YOU UNPLUG THE DISPOSAL and the DISHWASHER.

The piece is inside the hole and you will have to use a ice pick or a screwdriver. It took me some time to do because of the hard plastic and the ackward positioning of the disposal. The piece is the size of a quarter and it is perforated for the purpose of puncturing.

Once punctured through, take a pair of pliers to pull the piece from the inside of the disposal where you place the food to be grinded. Throw the piece away and connect the hose. Plug back the disposal and dishwasher and you should be ready to go.

Kenmore elite dishwasher


If you had a fault in your neutral wire the voltage may have raised to near 220 volts and fried the circuitboard. Replave the circuitboard or replace the thermistor on it. Double check the voltage and the connections where it is wired under the dishwasher.

Here's a link to your model, showing exploded diagrams and parts lists, for future reference.

And your manual.

I found similar Kenmore dishwashers on Consumer Reports with around 135 to 145 minutes for a normal wash cycle and around 5 to 6 gallons per wash. A quick wash would take somewhat less, depending on the model. But not much less. I think you are OK. Because dishwashers are using less water these days, they count on longer wash times to produce the same effect.

Best regards, --W/D--

My kenmore Elite stopped working after my daughter open the door during a cycle. There seems to be no power. Circuit breaker is fine. Any thoughts? Thanks


Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the dishwasher (inside the junction box, behind the bottom kick panel), if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.

No power suddenly on the control panel... kenmore elite model 665-1374/665-1384 Worked one day and not the next. Breaker is on, no blockage at water line... connections all tight. It's only 14 months old!


Kenmore dishwashers should be recalled!! Their poorly designed computer circuit boards are all malfunctioning around 15 months. Look on the inside top of your door. Do you see a instructions? There should be some about your Heat Dry button and holding it down for 4 seconds to reset your computer board. Read and try it first. It's like rebooting a computer.
