Question about Kenmore 24 in. 15932 Built-in Dishwasher
My husband and I bought our house 2 months ago. Fortunately, we bought the one year appliance warranty because today our dishwasher stopped draining. We ran a normal cycle, just like we always have, and when it got to the draining portion of the cycle, it just made a humming noise and never actually drained. We scrape/rinse any lose food off dishes before we put them in the dishwasher. We removed the train filter thing and there was nothing clogging it. We use the Electrasol Powerball Tabs detergent. Is this recalled or anything?

Are you using rinse aid?
that may help with the film.you may also have stuff down in the trap causing the water to drain slow.

Not draining may either need new drain motor. or something is blocking the drain pipe.
Spots on dishes means you are using to much detergent or the wrong kind of detergent.
Your owners manuel should tell you what type to use.

1. No waterMake sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve.
2. Not enough water
If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. This could be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (located under the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).
3. Clogged spay arms
There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. Make sure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray arm.
4. Water temperature is too low
To get the best results, the water has to be at 120 degrees Fahrenheit when entering the dishwasher.
5. Not enough soap
If you only fill one part of the soap cup, try adding soap to both parts.
6. Smoky film on dishes and glasses
This problem occurs due to excessive calcium build up inside the dishwasher. Try cleaning you dishwasher using a dishwasher cleaner.

remove the kick panel below the door, place a pan, etc under where the drain hose connects to the drain extension tube, and slide the clamp back some so you can slide the hose off of the extension tube (white plastic tube) and drain any excess fluid into the aforementioned pan, etc., then unscrew the extension tube and check for plugs, or restrictions.
the sump may also be pluged beneath the strainer assembly, and that requires removing the lower spray arm, the water tube that runs up the inside back of the unit, and the upper parts of the assembly below them to access the drain/pump sump area.
last but not least the impeller is jamed and might be able to be freed by removing whatever has lodged within there..
ya never know...
best of luck,
