    Thanks for asking chuckserv. As it turns out, we figured out my basic -- so basic-- conceptual problem. We thought the center was a screw and were trying to turn it counterclockwise to back it out. But as I finally figured out from another post-- the center should be considered a hub, and you turn the arms counterclockwilse around it in order to lift it out and get at the area underneath. Fortunately we figured it out before irretrievably breaking the hub (it did strip a little but still seems to work).

    What is the exact model? 665 tells me it is a whirlpool tall tub built for Sears. How ever there are a few different builds and a few different ways to remove the screen.

Dishwasher wont push water around inside tub correctly something is blocking water flow to pump i looked for filter could not find


The units diosposal screen is probably clogged.
This is a relatively simple procedure that requires 2 tools. There is a screen behind the cutter in the built in disposal unit that gets clogged easily. You may want to order a new part before disassembly.
To disassemble:
You will need 2 sizes of torqs (star shaped) screw drivers and some patience in reassembly. Be sure to note how things are assembled before removing them. You do not need to unplug the unit to do this as you will be inside the unit and not around any exposed electrical components. Make sure the unit has been off for a while so that the heater element is cool.
  1. Remove the top rack by squeezing and sliding the plastic locks upward (on the ends of the rails) Then slide the rack out.
  2. Remove the bottom rack
  3. turn the center plastic retainer on top of the spray mast cclockwise (opposite most all other screws) and lift out main spray arm
  4. remove screw from back center water pipe (oblong flat 2 piece plastic unit on the back wall inside) and rotate it clockwise to release the tabs under the pump cover. Lift above a carefully move out of the way
  5. loosen and carefully remove 4 screws from the pump cover/ diverter/ screen unit and lift out exposing the top of the pump and motor housing (usually grey plastic)
  6. Locate the screw at the front left of the pump cover that holds down the disposal cover. remove the screw and note which groove the screen is in as well as the side of the screen the blade is on.
  7. Replace the blade/ screen unit or clean the old one (under a tap of warm water and with an old tooth brush) and reinstall it.
  8. Assembly is reverse of above. Note! Be sure locking tabs are under pump cover as before and you don’t drop the screw for the oblong water pipe!

Lower spray arm will not spray water


I just had a simliar problem with all spray arms and solved the problem by cleaning the food screen. Basically, it takes water pressure to make the spray arms rotate. Before assuming there is a failed part, make sure the spray arms are getting max water pressure by checking the food screen. Here's how I serviced my Kenmore dishwasher.

The lower arm assembley is removable by twisting the center plastic piece. It's not very tight and should come off easily by twist with a pliers (but gently). Then remove the tubing to the upper arms (Two screws). Then remove the bottom drain cover (4 star screws).

Under the drain cover are two more things to remove. One, a plastic plate over the bottom of the water drain (1 screw). Two cover to the food screen (1 screw). After removng the screw to the cover of the food screen, it will be a little difficult to remove that cover. The side opposite the screw requires releasing a catch with a screw driver. It's hard tell which way it releases, just keep trying different ways until it pops up. The cover may stick a little beacuse of the food stuck in the screen.

Once you have access to the screen, the screen can be removed by pulling on the center shaft (spring loaded) with a needle nose pliers and lifting the screen straight up. (Note: there maybe a blade next to the screen used to braek up the food.)

After removing the screen, clean it (I used a plastic scrub brush).

Reassembly is performaing these steps in the reverse order.

Hope this helps!

How to take apart the diswasher to clean it


This is a 5 step process.
1 Remove bottom basket. Remove top basket (Pop off 'keepers' at the ends of the slidding shelf supports).
2. Remove bottom washing arm. Unscrew (Gently but firmly) the centre post. Lift arm assembly out.
3. Remove overhear conduit. There is one screw at the back and one at the top (Philips #2 bit). Rotate the whole assembly 45 deg right (Clockwise) and lift off of the centre post. It can be taken apart to clean.
4.Remove centre post (Pull straight up). Remove 4 screws (Star T-20 bit). Lift the whole plastic assembly out. Pop off the screen (Flat blade screwdriver around the edge) and clean.
5. Remove cap over cutter/chopper. There is a single screw at the front left (Under center assembly just removed). Remove screw (Star T-15 bit) and cap (Needs some wiggling to free it up). Remove cutter & filter. It is on a spring loaded pin. Pull the cutter blade foreward and then the filter disc up. Clean thoroughly. Run a 'quick rinse' cycle with everything out, to clean the inside.
Reassemble.

Kenmore Quiet3 not cleaning top rack, now stopped cleaning all


The problem is likely that the cutter/chopper filter is plugged. This reduces or eliminates water flow to the cleaning arms.
Solution:
Remove dish baskets
Remove bottom arm - Rotate the centre post until arm is free to be lifted out.
Remove conduit to top arm(s) - Remove 2 screws, one at top and one at back. Rotate whole conduit 45 deg right and lift off of centre post.
Remove bottom plastic assembly. - Remove 4 screws and lift off.
Remove cutter cap. - Remove 1 screw at front left. Lift off plastic cap. Remove cutter filter. It is on a spring loaded pin. Pull cutter blade foreword and lift filter disc straight up. Clean filter disc thoroughly
Reassemble!

Dishwasher Problem...


You are right. The plastic screw needs to be removed. I have a Quiet Guard 4. My procedure is as follows:
1. Remove baskets. Need to pop off the 'keepers' at the ends of the top slidding shelf supports.
2. Remove bottom washing arm. Unscrew (Gently but firmly) the centre post. Lift arm assembly out.
3. Remove overhead conduit. One screw at back, one at top.= (Philips #2 bit). Rotate whole assembly 45 deg right (Clockwise) and lift off of centre post.
4. Remove centre post (Pull straight up). Remove 4 screws (Star T-20 bit). Lift the whole plastic assembly out. Pop off the screen and clean,
5. Remove cap over cutter/chopper. There is one screw at the left front (Star T-15 bit). Remove screw and cap (Needs some wiggling to free it up). Remove cutter and filter (this is the water blocking problem). It is on a spring loaded pin. Pull the cutter blade foreward and lift the filter disc straight up. Clean thoroughly. I ran a 'quick rinse' cycle with everything out to chean the inside.
Reassemble.
Hope there is enough of a similarity to be helpful.

Kenmore 655 ultra wash built in dishwasher


Possible problem is that the chopper/cutter filter is plugged. This prevents water circulation and therefor no water is available for cleaning.
Solution:
Remove the dish baskets.
Remove the bottom cleaning arm - Rotate the centre post and the arm can then be removed.
Remove the conduit that feeds the upper arm(s) - Remove screws, one at the back and one at the top. Rotate the whole assembly 45 deg right and lift off of the centre post.
Remove 4 screws in the plastic assembly and lift it off of the centre.
Remove 1 screw at left front (Under assembly just removed). Lift off the plastic cap which covers the cutter/chopper. Remove the chopper. It is on a spring loaded pin. Pull the cutter foreword while lifting the filter disc straight up. Thoroughly clean the filter disc - a knife will be req'd to scrape in clean.
Reassemble in reverse to the disassembly steps.

Whining noise with Kenmore 16032 dishwasher


I had a similar issue, I removed the lower spray arm (had to hold center plastic tab with pliers and then unscrewed and lifted up the arm). Then I removed the cover with the screen filter(4 screws) and then removed the top half of the stainless chopper housing (1 screw). Found that things like cherry pits, elastic bands, bread plastic ties had blocked the water inlet to the chopper and the area around the chopper blade. Cleaned it all up, reassembled and machine works great! Mine was so blocked that I was hardly getting any water pressure to the upper rack.
