Kenmore dishwasher (model 655) not draining

Hello, I have a Kenmore dishwasher (model 655) that is not draining the water (during any part of a wash cycle). I cannot find anything that appears to be blocked (took off the bottom spinning wash blade) and the water inlet switch appears to properly float to let water in. What do I do now?

    The washing light continuously blinks. This problem started after the water would not drain . Finally got the water to drain after setting the water level sesor in the up position. But, the washing light continues to blink.

    It seems that the dishwasher filled with water the very first time after install, but does not empty and keeps using the same water for subsequent loads. How do I adjust the float if that is the problem? Thanks

    my dishwasher flashed 2 and stays full of water and it turns on and shuts off by it's self. We had the computer and touch panel replaced and it still does the same thing.

When i attend dishwashers that have lost power to some part, i always check for broken wires inside the door skin, the wire harness inside the door skin gets hot and cracks with use when opening the door all the time after that check the outlet pump which is often a separate part to the main motor, this pump could be faulty electrically

Water will not drain.


If you hear the pump operating during the drain cycle but water is not draining then check for blockages in the filter, drain hose and kitchen drain including inskincerator. If you have done all this and no success then the problem is inside the tub sump. Check the drain pump Item 60 in this diagram

What DOES it do? Just fill with water? Or doesn't it even do that? Do you have any lights on or flashing? Do you hear any noises when you try to run it?

Kenmore Model @16969990 Washing water doesn't pump out, cycle doesn't finish, attemptes to run other cycles default to "normal wash"


The drain cycle does not complete as the drain pump is not working the pump out the water. So unless the drain level comes down to reset the water level controller the program does not progress further.
So check the voltage during the drain cycle if voltage is present then the drain pump is faulty if not the main controller is faulty.
replace accordingly.

Kenmore 655 Ultra Wash- dishes not getting clean and have a residue on them when done washing. Arms appear to swing freely.


Does the dishwasher drain the water properly at the end of the rinse cycle. Meaning, is there any leftover water at the bottom of the dishwasher.

Bottom Spray Arm Not Rotating


check to make sure you are getting enough water entering the dishwasher. If you add a liter of water, does the water arm turn then? If so, you may have a faulty water valve that is not allowing enough water to enter to turn the spray arm. Hope that solves it :)
