Water remians in the dishwasher after cycle

We just bought a used Kenmore model 15721 dishwasher and installed it. After running it one cycle to make sure it worked - it did except the water is still in the bottom. It is full not just a little bit. We did buy a new drainage hose and installed it along with the dishwasher. Can this be fixed easily or inexpensively?

SOURCE: Dishwasher not resetting before new cycle

It look like you have a cold water supply problem- check water entrance pipe, myaybe it was bend (if you have there a tap - see it is open). Check that water entrance valve work (it is an electromagnet valve,loocated at the pipe's enterance to the machine). If it doesn't work, test that it get power. In case it get power and dosen't work - You can easyly open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from machine before doing it !!!!! Check as well for valve's coil resistance. In case you have no resistance measurement - you should replace for a new valve.

SOURCE: Dishwasher--water in bottom -end of cycle.

You may need to tip the dishwasher forward, use a towel as water will get every where otherwise. once drained put it through another cycle. this should reset the drainage level. hope this works as it has for ours, bye

SOURCE: Kenmore dishwasher drainage problems

I have the same model -- and USED to have the same problem! We tried lots of things (bleach in the water, etc.). . . . and finally discovered it was a simple, standard concern. The drain tube from the dishwasher to the sink pipe was clogged with grease (looked like lard).
The way i knew it was clogged is that I disconnected the tube from the sink pipe, and tried to blow through the tube. It wouldn't let any air get through. 
So once the dishwasher was empty of water (i removed the tube, drained into a big pan, and bailed a lot), we disconnected both ends of the tube. 
With the tube in a trash bucket, I blew from one end (cleaned it off a bit first), and the "lard" came out. Drains beautifully now -- and did not require a plumber.
If you do this, be SURE you place the tube back ON the fittings EXACTLY in the same position and shape as before. This makes there are no new kinks or bends introduced into your drain tube.
Hope this helps.
E-mail if further questions!

SOURCE: Kenmore Dishwasher 665.1671590 Leaking water at fill funnel.

Step1
Inspect the door gasket. As it ages, the gasket can crack or become hard, preventing it from sealing completely. 
Step
2
If the gasket appears solid, adjust the door latch so the door seals tightly. Loosen the screw that holds the door latch to the cabinet. Push the latch in slightly and retighten the screw. Test the door and readjust the latch if necessary. 
Step
3
Replace the gasket if water continues to leak after you've tightened the latch. Most gaskets are held by compression in a groove on the door or on the dishwasher cabinet. 
Step
4
Pull the old gasket out of its groove, using adjustable pliers (see illustration). Take the gasket to an appliance store to get a replacement. 
Step
5
Soak the new gasket in warm water to soften it, then press it into the groove. Start at the top, then work your way down the sides and across the bottom.

Dishwasher keeps running to long


Most likely the hot water temperature is the problem. If you have a separate hot water inlet check that the water temperature is ok. But if you only have a single cold water inlet then the heater inside dishwasher may be faulty. Check if the dishwasher is still cold when you terminate the cycle.
Heater is part 13 in this diagram.

.After running my dishwasher on eco/fast cycle,


If the dishwasher is completing the wash cycle without any problem then the suds can occur either because you not using correct detergent. This model does not tolerate the tablets. You have to use the powder.
Water remaining in the bottom of drawer is linked to drain hose either blocked or not looped high enough under the kitchen sink.
I would suggest check this document for correct installation.

We just installed a new kenmore dishwasher yesterday. Model 13242 It has been running for almost2 hours and is still on the washing cycle--no water in it however--is this normal? I'm in a bit of a panic as...


THAT IS NOT NORMAL!!!!!!! A normal wash and dry cycle will take approx. 2 hours in length including drying cycle.
You should see that water has been present in the machine within the first 2 minutes of the start of the wash cycle, you should also be able to hear the water entering the wash tub.
The fill valve or water supply seems to be the issue, if the water doesn't enter the tub then the controller won't proceed witht the wash cycle. Double check your water supply tube / hose to make sure there is water present at the connection to the dishwasher.
GOOD LUCK !

What is your water temp. This model has 4 automatic water heat cycles built in to it and it heats the water to 145 degrees and won't let advance till that temp. If the water coming in is lower than 120 degrees it will add about 2 hours to your normal wash cycle.

Water wont stop going in


You stated that your house is new. I see this frequently and what has likely happened is the installer used pipe dope to seal the elbow that screws into the bottom of the dishwasher water valve. They should have used Teflon thread tape instead as the pipe dope will get into the diaphram in the water valve, clog the tiny holes in it and ruin the water valve. The valve on the dishwasher will need to replaced. Hopefully the company that takes care of the warranty doesn't charge you for it. They should back-charge the installer.

Kenmore Model 16253 - Stops mid cycle


Sounds to me that the heater is not working, if you have just bought it, it must still be under Guarantee so go back to the supplier.

Kenmore Ultra Wash Model 665 Dishwasher


Dishwashers which are properly installed and regularly used won't normally have a problem with bad odors. Check the following: ?Was the drain hose brought in at the top of the cabinet, or down near the floor? it must be 34" from the floor. ?Do you run the unit at least once every 2 days? -Run a cycle with a quart of vinegar to clean the tub and pump. ?Does the disposal tend to back up slightly when the dishwasher drains? Drain may be clogged. -Don't use gel detergent! ?Check your water softener(If so equipped) These can cause foul odors in the water supply if not properly balanced or maintained Good luck!
