Question about Kenmore 17024 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Its a kenmore 665.17032403

The dishwasher is not cleaning the upper level correctly. Door slime is left when opening the door. A repair man came out and cleaned some food out of it last year and I cant remember where he opened it up to get it. I took the arm and the tube out to make sure not food was caught in the tube that feeds the upper spray arm.it all looks clean.I am wondering if I need to get a alan wrench and open up the motor or what. Thanks

Detergent not dissolving therefore some items not clean.


Jerry had two good First Checks with the water level and the temperature. Turn on the dishwasher and open the door after it completes filling and check the level and temperature.

A third possibility if the level and temperature are correct is that your dishwasher is not spraying enough water around. This could be due to a faulty pump, but more often I see a reduced spray from a clogged filter on the input to the pump.

You can check the amount of spray by waiting until it starts the wash cycle and open the door quickly. Water should be pouring off the upper rack and you should either have water come out of the door or have it be very close to spraying out.

Some dishwasher models have an easily accessible filter, others take some tools to get down to it.

Next question, how do I get the slime out of the clothes from washer?


Cleaning the rubber door gasket will not get rid of the slime issue. The slime comes from buildup on the outside of the washer drum. There are two causes for this. First, if you always close the washer door after use, then the moisture inside the drum cannot dissipate and the slime can form. Also, using the wrong type of detergent (or an excessive amount of the correct detergent) can cause the slime. There are front load washer cleaning products that you can purchase and run to clean the slime from the outside of the drum.

What could be causing the door latch to release late in the wash cycle of my Kenmore Ultra dishwasher?


The door spring tension might be causing the door latch to become disengaged. Check the level of the dishwasher and also adjust door spring tension. Will need model number to provide more details.

Dishes not cleaning after full cycle running


Your screens are plugged with food residue in the bottom of the unit. clean it out. You can use 1 gallon of white vinegar for your wash after you clean the screens. Start your washer to fill with water but after the water starts, open your door and pore all of the gallon in the unit. Let it now run for 4 minutes and stop it by opening the door. Leave the door slightly open for 1 hour. close the door and let the cycle continue for 4 more minutes. open the door and repeat it a couple of more times. Let it sit all night with the vinegar in it and in the morning - close the door and let the cycle continue to the end. This should help soften and clean out the food particles in the unit. You can repeat the process and get a better cleaning then too. All the scale should be off your dishes now.

Dishwaher was inoperable for 2 weeks waitng for part, now theres a horrible smell like old water that perhapl leaked into the wall-the repair man did not take the whole unit out--i've put bleach,...


You should take out the filters in the base of the sump and clean them. also clean the sump. Then take off the door outer liner and clean along the bottom of the door seal. The bottom of the door seal is the worst place whaer a build up of greas forms. Once the lower door area is clean and the sump is clean get som descaler and run it through without dishes. You can buy dishwasher descaler or dishwasher cleaner from the supermarket. Keep the lower door seal clean regularly. dont put dishes i the machine with food on them. Dishwashers are not able to dispose of garbage, just grease from dishes. Good luckPS vinegar may help too.....

The upper shelf of my 17379 dishwasher is not getting water.


check your float switch. Open the door and look on the left or right side, It may look juke a small dome pull that out and clean it. Food particals get stuck on the stem and starts the motor befor it get enough water in the machine to clean the dishes and make enough pressure to get to the top shelf

Buzzing in upper left hand corner of door on Asko D1776. When door is fully open it stops but when door is up it continues and you can feel warmth in the uopper left hand corner.


Hi,

I think what you are describing is the "turbo fan" assembly. This device is used to remove the condensation to insure dishes are dry at the end of a cycle. It actually vent`s out the bottom left side via a plastic housing but the vent motor assembly is located inside the door at the upper left corner.

If it ( the fan) continues to run or "hums" because it`s trying to run, even when the dishwasher is idle or no program has been selected, it is likely a problem within` the control board unfortunately. This is usually caused by the vent assembly getting clogged up so it cannot open correctly and the "wax motor" ( the small device which open`s and closes the vent ) burns up and short`s out the control board.
If you`re capable, you can visually inspect the control and look for burnt up path ways on the printed circuit side ( green side with lot`s of solder joints ).
If so you`ll need to replace the control as well as the fan assembly, or clean the assembly really well as most asko control`s come with a new "wax motor"...or used to where I live. Unfortunately those control`s retail for about $400 and up, and most now are of the "rebuilt/refurbished" kind. The part number should be ( if the model number is correct ) # 8801201.

Hope this help`s move you forward. Let me know either way and I`ll try to assist you further.

Thank`s for visiting "fixya" today for your repair solution`s and good luck moving forward.

My new Kenmore Elite panel ready dishwasher leaves wet


You need only enough space so the door does not rub when opened. If the unit is too far back under the cabinet the countertop (if wood) can be damaged by the exhausting moisture. The dry feature on the newer models is just as you describe. The moisture from the hotter dishes evaporates and is condensed on the cooler walls and door of the wash tub. Dry dishes wet tub is normal.
