My Kenmore dishwasher gets water, but does not wash the dishes

My dishwasher did not wash, so upon investigating, I had the bottom rotating arm nut break, so I ended up replacing it, and now it still won't wash.

Check & clear the inlet screen at the bottom of the machine. It may be clogged with debris preventing/restricting water flow.

Our Hotpoint Aquarius dishwasher initially had the Eco & Prewash lights flashing & standing water inside. We then turned it on in the hope that the standing water would drain, which it did. It then...


Is it a dishwasher a washing machine or a drier? Washing machines don't have rotating arms and you said "I've managed to get the drier to drain"

I will assume it is a dishwasher in which case it sounds like your pump has failed.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

Spots are left on the dishes after washing. Dishes don't look clean


Hi

If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound.

If it seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve. Now, check if dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after the cycle is complete. Try cleaning the spray arm with a soft brush. The water temperature plays a major role in cleaning of dishes. The temp should be between 125 and 150 F for dishwasher to clean the dishes. Hope this helps...

Dishes coming out dirty.have recommended water temp, washing on heavy load, tried different detergents but nothing is helping


Tear the lower spray arm tower down to the deck, noting the position and orientation of each piece as removed. When you get to the bottom, there is a large filter screen that needs to be soaked for an hour or so in a mixture of hot water, detergent, and white vinegar to remove food and water deposits. Check each of the holes in the deck for any obstructions. On reassembly, check the spray arms for cracks along any seams and for plugging of the small spray holes. Make sure the machine drains completely after final rinse.

Draining water on kitchen floor


I am not familiar with your model dishwasher, but had a similar problem a few years back. I am assuming you have checked the obvious causes, such as a worn, or damaged gasket around the door. My problem was fixed by replacing the lower spray arm. The spray arm is a couple inches wide, about 18 inches long, has holes in it and rotates as it dispenses water - some lift up during the wsk and rinse cycles. In my case some of the holes got plugged up with gunk, which resulted in the water shooting out harder and further from the other holes. Those streams of water went places they were not designed to go and ended up on my kitchen floor. So check that part out and see if it is the cause of your problem. Good luck!

The top rack on my kenmore dishwasher is not cleaning the dishes!


check the inlet strainer at the bottom of the unit - and also the nozzles on the top are for clogs/sediment.
