The cancel light is on because the cycle maybe paused or canceled. The lit red button should say Cancel/Drain. If you already tried to press start and if it won't finish the cycle then try pressing the Cancel/Drain to drain and start over.

Why won't my kenmore ultra wash dishwasher drain?


It could be an obstruction in the drain hose (most common), or in the air-break (if you have one), or at the check valve, or something may be blocking or stopping the drain pump impeller. Try this: Close the door and press Cancel. (Or if your dishwasher has the controls that are hidden under your counter ledge when you close the door, then press Cancel first and then close the door. Do you hear anything? Is the drain pump trying to run? If so, then start at your garbage disposal and work backwards. If you got a new garbage disposal installed, make sure that you (or the installer) remembered to knock out the hard-plastic plug at the end of the dishwasher connector port. Also make sure you don't have a clog right there. If that's okay, then check the drain hose (or air-break, if you have one) for clogs. If that's okay, then you will probably want to call a professional because the next steps involve removing and dismantling the drain pump.

Kenmore Elite dishwasher will not drain


If the drain pump won't run, the most common cause is something hard (like a piece of glass or hard plastic) got into the pump and is blocking the impeller. If you want to fix it yourself, first unpug the dishwasher. Then you will need to either siphon the water out of the sump area or use a wet vac to suck out the water from the sump area. Then remove the toe-kick panel so you can get to the underside of the dishwasher. Depending on the model, you may be able to access the drain pump from there, or you may have to pull the dishwasher out. Then you can remove the end of the drain hose and check the area there. If that's okay, you can remove the drain pump by finding and pressing on the release button or lever, and turning it 1/8 turn counter-clockwise, If there's an obstruction, you will find it now. If no obstruction, then you probably have a bad drain pump and will need to replace it.

Dishwasher will not run. Air Dry/Lock on light blinks and unable to turn off even if held for 4 seconds. If you press Start, "Quick Rinse" light comes on and blinks along with the Air Dry Light....


Sound like you might have a fallty drain pump. When you turn the power off and started again, did you hear noise of pump draining the leftover water. If not , then you have a pump problem. Need a service man. Good luck !

DIshwasher stopped during wash and won't run or drain.


Sounds like a drain motor startup capacitor, or stuck pump. Try disconnecting power and turn the water pump manually. Some disassembly required. Then after a few good hand spins replug and try again.

Kenmore Dishwasher won't drain


If you opened and closed the door and it started, that sounds like a bad, door switch in the console.

But you did hear a hum sound when it tryed to drain, it could be the drain solenoid, or the motor/pump assembly.

Take off the bottom access and look at the solenoid when it starts to drain, the piston in the solenoid should move freely, up and down with the white drain flapper that it connects to.

Also check for bad wiring connections at the power junction box where the power hooks up to it under the dishwasher, i have seen the wire nuts either come loose or burn off due to loose connections.

Bosch Dishwasher won't drain, cancel drain lights blink


when you said "I can run a wash", does the machine act normal for that time frame up to the point of drain? if yes, the pump is fine. sounds more like the micro chip on the board is "confused", but not sure why.
