Question about Kenmore 24 in. 15689 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

No power to the main water valve during cycle.

I start the normal, or anyother, cycle and do not get power to the main water valve. 20+ seconds later, the circulation pump comes on with no water to circulate. Is there a relay or fuse in this circuit? Where do I look?

I'm no expert, but I recently had a fill valve replaced. There is a float switch at the bottom of most dishwashers. Its purpose is to cut power to the normally-closed electrically-opened fill valve in the event of an overfill. If the float switch "thinks" there is an over-fill situation, it will cut power to valve, closing it. I would start with replacing the float switch or checking to ensure that it is not stuck in the "up" position due to debris.

Again, I'm no expert.

Heating Circulating Water Pump Problems


Changing your circulator pump is not always an easy process.
5243f0e.jpg
I will attempt to explain some of the possibilities for changing out a circulator pump. First of all I would recommend that if you are reading this and you do not have an extra circulating pump in the basement beside the boiler. That you stop by your local heating and air conditioning supply house and buy one. For under one hundred dollars it will be cheap insurance.


The very first thing you need to know is the water temperature in the boiler. If the water is hot, 140F or above than the problem is not the boiler. It is heating the water. The next thing will be to see if there is power coming to the circulator pump. Either take the electrical cover off of the circulator pump motor, or check for voltage at the source of the wire going to the circulator pump. If there is no voltage, usually 110 volts for the US, then you have to look at why the motor is not getting power. I will do another article on that issue at another time.

So now we have established that you have power coming to the motor. There is hot water in the boiler however the pipes going to the radiation are cold. The next thing to look for, are zone valves. They are little motorized valves that open and shut to direct the flow of heat to different parts of the house or building. It is possible that one of them could fail and the circulator pump is running and moving no water. Usually the circulator pump will be making a noise and often be very hot if this is the case. Of course then you need to check the zone valve. That, we will also cover later.

The first thing you need to do to change the circulator pump is to make sure that the electricity to the circulator pump motor is turned off. Verify that the power is off before touching the wires. The wires then need to be disconnected at the pump motor. Then the 4 bolts that hold the circulator pump in place need to be removed. Save these bolts, they may be needed to install the new pump. Carefully remove the pump from the flanges. A pry bar or screw driver may be needed to break the pump lose from the old flanges. Be careful of the motor, depending on the type of failure, the motor can be very hot.

If you had a responsible installer do your heating system, then you will have a valve in the piping on either side of the circulator pump. These valves will isolate the circulator pump from the rest of the heating system and changing the circulator pump will be fairly painless. If you do not have valves closed to the pump, then you will need to find the valves that will be the closest to either side of the pump and close them. For some older installs there may not be any valves and you will have to drain most of the water out of the system to change the pump.

This can get very complicated and professional help may be needed. The hardest part may be refilling the system and getting the air purged back out of the piping.

To install the new pump, clean the old gasket material from the flanges and install the new gaskets on the new pump. Carefully insert the new pump with gaskets into the flanges. Be careful not to damage the gaskets. Then install the 4bolts that hold the circulator pump in place. Tighten the bolts just so they are snug and not too tight. If they leak a bit you can always make them a bit tighter to stop the leak. Too tight may damage the gaskets. Hook up the wires to the pump motor again. Open the valves back up and check for leaks. Adjust bolts as needed. Apply power to the system and start the motor to check the operation of the circulator pump.

The on/off switch light only flashed for an instant when appliance plugged into mains then no lights work programs wont start, i hve checked power through the mains lead and there is power into the machine...


It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors or feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven from the flow into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the dry spin with the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water from the clothes during the spin.

Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.

CHECK THAT THE WATER IS ON TO THE UNIT, AND IF VOLTAGE IS AT WATER INLET VALVE. IF VOLTAGE THEN WATER SHOULD BE COMING IN EITHER BAD INLET VALVE OF CLOGGED SCREEN IF THERE IS VOLTAGE TO VALVE. NO VOLTAGE THEN CONNECTIONS OR TIMER WOULD BE NEXT.

Dishwasher detergent does not dissolve during cycle. Clumps in prewash and main wash compartments


Either:

1. the water does not get into the dishwasher open the dishwasher 3-4 times during cycle, you should see some water at least once, if not - check water valve, water level float and water pressure.
2. the pump is clogged - there is water, the motor will run but no water is circulated. Check pump filters, check chopper and impeller.
3. motor in main pump is not working - could be caused by something stuck on the impeller or chopper or could be a problem with the motor itself or control board. Check if line voltage is coming to the motor during wash/rinse cycle.

Good luck,

Water-inlet valve Most cleaning problems are caused by the dishwasher not getting enough wash water, so the water-inlet valve is often to blame. This valve is usually at the bottom left or right of the dishwasher, behind the lower access panel. It's the device with the main water line from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it. When a water-inlet valve is defective, you may hear the sound that's usually referred to as "water hammer." If the water-inlet valve is defective, you need to completely replace it.

Be sure to read and understand any instructions that come with the new water inlet valve.

Loud noise when unit is pumping


Sounds like it is not getting enough water. Try adding water to it to see if the sound goes away. Start the unit at the begining of a cycle, open the door after it has started to circulate and see where the water is at. If it is low then you have a problem with the amount of water coming in, possibly the waterproof (valve) is going. If the level is good and it happens later in the cycle, it could be a drain issue. You may have to get in a tech.
