Re: installing part

There should be a clip half way up the back and on the top. release those and the old tub should come out with out to much difficulty. the peice that attaches from the feeder arm to the lower spray arm turns clock wise and lifts out. the lower spray arm will unscrew if you use a pair of pliers.

How do I replace and install the tub wheel for the upper basket of a kenmore elite dishwasher?

Usually you have to pull the dishwasher out, so you can get to the screws that go from the outside of the DW to the wheel assemblies. Just make sure to transfer over the gasket to the new wheel assemblies so you DW doesn't leak!

Water leaking under the dishwasher

I have Kitchenaid model number (KUDE70FVSS2) and thought it was great (so quiet) until recently when I had to remove it for unrelated reason. That's when I noticed leaking (slow drip) when running. Laying on back (to prevent water going everywhere) isolated problem to the motor (diverter motor) and with a little internet research discovered that the factory had installed the washer (between the motor and the sump) upside down! Washer has deep groove which should face downward so that it covers part of the motor housing and seals completely. Well as result washer had been leaking (slowly) for a while, and on top of floor damage, motor connectors corroded into nothing. Motor actually seems fine and (be warned) replacing wouldn't fix the problem. Now trying to figure out how to reconnect wiring to motor without having to buy whole new wiring assembly. While motor replacement is fairly easy (two screws and two wire connectors), replacing entire wiring assembly involves door disassembly, lots of connectors and it's twice the price of the motor. Grrrr so mad at manufacturer now since this seems like intentional obsolesce.

What year is this Kenmore dishwasher Model # 665.15831791 made?

The date of manufacture is determined by the SERIAL NUMBER on the appliance. This dishwasher was manufactured by Whirlpool. The following link explains how to determine when it was manufactured:

The serial number is usually located somewhere around the door opening. The first two numbers in the serial number identify the WEEK it was manufactured (52 weeks in a year). The second DIGIT in the serial represents the YEAR it was manufactured.

If you have difficulty determining the manufacture date, please post back with your serial number and I will assist you. I hope you find this information helpful.

Kenmore dishwasher has stopped draining.

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,

Top tray of Kenmore Quietguard3 dishwasher not cleaning!

The top rack is not cleaning because of low water pressure from the wash motor to the upper spray arm.
Assuming the top spray arms are clear of debris, remove the lower spray arm and lower feed tube to access the wash motor. Remove the 4 torx screws and the filter (accumulator assembly). Remove the torx screw and the inlet protector that covers the chopper assembly. Make sure the chopper is not broken (broken chopper will fill with debris and block water flow). While holding the chopper blade, reach inside the "D" shaped opening on top of the motor and spin the wheel/motor by hand in each direction to make sure either the chopper gear or the motor gear that drives the chopper is not broken. Replace the chopper if necessary (part # 8268383). If the motor gear is broken, replace the sump and motor assembly (part # 8535150). Remove any debris from the sump area in the process.
You don't have to shut the power off to the dishwasher because the door will be open, but if you feel more comfortable, do so.
Good luck!

Dishes not cleaning particularly on top rack

A guess: the solenoid that directs the water from the pump is not opening fully. Clean it. It is a little nasty to get to but will likely cure the problem.
