Question about Washing Machines
Good afternoon, We have a Kenmore Elite Dishwasher double drawer model number #13343. For some reason the water heats normally in the lower drawer when "High Temp Wash" option is activated, while in the top drawer water is always cold, regardless of whether "High Temp Wash" option is used or not. The light comes on when "High Temp Wash" option is selected, but water is still cold. Would someone please help us? Thank you very much!!! Eugene

Well there is one of two control boards that is malfunctioning, most common is the Machine (or Main) control board, there is also a display pc board in the control panel, but i have had few problems with that control. Unfortunately the main board is $300.

first of all check to be sure the cold water vavle is opened all the way, then checked for a kinked hose. if both of those is ok there is a screen in the valve that catches trash in the water. remove the hose from the machine (and possibly from the supply valve )and check to make sure there are no obstructions.
if all that checks okyou have a bad water fill valve. you can order the valve from sears and it is very easy to replace.

Look at your manual, usually available on net for reading or downloading. Blink lights are often used to code out a problem with various combinations and repetition rates to indicate trouble code number for look-up in manual.

Hi: I just posted a similar problem, but found a solution. After taking the arm, etc. apart (and verifying no blockages), I thought maybe the lack of water pressure was being caused by the fact that there are TWO holes for the top spray arm (higher and lower rack setting) on my model. ie. that water was being forced out of both holes, causing a drop in water pressure, which was causing the top spray arm to stop spinning. I plugged the unused hole with a wine bottle cork (to keep the water from spraying out the unused hole), and voila, it now works.
I wish all appliance fixes were this easy...!

sounds like wash motor is not going . it will fill and control thinks motor is working . then it will drain wash water / ( drain pump is a different motor ) and then refill and so on .. never washes but fills and drains and heats. ( look for leakage under the motor i'm sure you will find some ..
