Look for the float.

it will be in the bottom somewhere. This is how your dishwasher knows it has water in it.

your float might be cracked or full of water (then it needs to be replaced. if you just want to drain the dishwasher in the short term, you can always prop up the float (but this will prevent the dishwasher from filling up again, because it will think it is still full...)

Or sometimes it is an open bottom or air-trap type of float and it might just be filled up with grease and stuff.

Reach underneath with your finger (YUCK!) if you can, and scoop out the grease. Then it should work just fine.

Dishwasher won't run. Worked yesterday, checked curcuit breaker, ok. water is in the bottem of washer but below the float level.


First, check the dishwasher filter and make sure it isn't clogged. Your owner's manual will have simple instructions on how to access and clean your dishwasher's filter.

Next, check the drain hose. Does it look flattened or kinked? Do you see any sharp bends? If so, straighten out the hose with your hands and manipulate it so that it regains its rounded shape.

If your dishwasher drains through the garbage disposal, try running the garbage disposal for a bit to process and clear any food. If that does not get the machine draining, you may have a deeper clog. However, most drain hoses clog either at the main household sink drain line connection or the garbage disposal connection.

Does your dishwasher spray your dishes, but it does not advance to the next stage and drain the dirty water? The timer controls the start of the draining process, so you may need an entirely new timer or a new motor for the timer. Repair service is recommended.

In some dishwashers, standing water is caused by a valve that fails to open and allow the water to drain out. This valve is controlled a solenoid that the timer controls. A malfunctioning solenoid could be the problem.

For more troubleshooting tips and solutions, see Dishwasher not draining. I hope this helps!

Dishwasher won't drain completely. Several inches of standing water left after last cycle


Sounds like the wash/drain selector valve might be stuck. my Kenmore operating solenoid rusted and hung up. I cleaned and oiled it up. You can also have something that got into the valve and it won't close, or an obstruction in the drain hose or the drain pipe connector. Something is restricting the flow or the pump itself may have a bad impeller. Does it wash with vigor or has it lost a little oomph and sound different? Does it leave any debris on the dishes?

Hi we have a Kenmore Dishwasher Model # 13744K and it won't turn on. It has water in the bottom that won't drain. Please advise. Thanks. John Webster.


For a dishwasher that was rated pretty high by Consumer Reports, it does not clean very well. In addition, the plastic control button cracked in less than a year and I must constantly clean around the inside of the door ... and I never received my rebate.
Despite those issues, it has been a workhorse. My wife is a daycare provider and the machine is used twice a day (on average) and still runs well. On a monthly basis, I alternate a pint of lemon juice and a pint of vinegar to keep it clean and once per year I use a granulated dishwasher cleaner.

My kenmore diswasher model 665 15772 - lock button is flashing - dishwasher will not start. Can you help me?


6/3 I bought a Kenmore Ultra Wash dishwasher, Model 665. As many others have posted, my dishwasher also do does not automatically drain, leaving about 3" of water in the bottom of the machine. The only way to pump the water from the machine is to use the Drain/Cancel button, which cancels the cycle, and the dry option, leaving the dishes wet and spotty.

I just contacted a tech rep with Sears Repair and was told this is a Factory Defect with this model. Whirlpool (manufacturer) is aware of the problem and working on a resolution. Meanwhile, Whirlpool (via Sears and K-Mart) offers a free service call to install the "retrofit kit" that should solve the problem.

Even though Sears is aware of this problem, you will be expected to jump through their hoops - did you install a disposal at the same time and knock out the plug (FYI - if the plug is not knocked out, the Drain/Cancel option will not work and the machine will not drain at all). They will also ask if there is anything blocking the drain (FYI - if there is a foreign material block of any kind, the Drain/Cancel option will not work and the machine will not drain.

If this dishwasher (Model 665) does not drain automatically, THIS IS A FACTORY DEFECT. A retrofit kit is available to correct. In the DC Metro area, the wait time for an in home service call is three weeks.

If you have this problem, call Sears 1-800-4MY HOME and schedule a FREE retrofit kit installation

ALSO, call your sales person, and the appliance dept manager, at the store where you purchased the appliance to let them know this product is defective.

I would remove the bottom panel of the dishwasher and remove the drain hose from the pump. On some of the Kenmore Dishwashers you can remove the drain spout where the drain hose attaches to and clean. Sometimes something will catch inside the drain spout.
I hope this helps.

Built in modle 665 does not drain


I am assuming that the modle 665 you are refering to is the first 3 characters of the model number???
if your unit is making all the normal noises it should make when draining, yet is not ejecting any water, or is leaving some and another drain cycle is necessary to remove all water the drain tube that screws into the pump/motor assembly may be cloged with larger than recommend particles that have made their way to it.. usually things like cupboard door bumpers that fall off into the unit get ground down till they fit through the chopper plate but are still to large to fit easily through that tube..
remove the kick plate below the units door, place a pan, etc under the drain hose where it connects to the tube, remove the hose, then unscrew the tube and check for obstructions..
hope this helps.
best of luck,

My dish washer does not drian completly


the water must pump uphill to the air gap. the last water in the line drops down the hose, and is in quantity equally to the volume of the hose from the bottom of the pump to the top of the hose. that flows to the bottom of the sump in the unit. if enough, it appears as residual water in the bottom. its ok.
