The end of the track facing out has a plastic cap with a half circle molded into it. Slide the half circle sidways to release it from the track. Remove the basket. It will be obvious from that point how the adjusters are attached.

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite Ultra Wash Dishwasher - top rack arm not spinning

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...!

Why wont the top[ drawer on my Kenmore elite dishwasher open all the way ?


Is that the one with the high-quality slides with ball-bearing glides? If so, then you probably have to replace the bad glide assembly. If it's the kind with the plastic rack adjusters with the plastic wheels, then 1 of the wheel hubs has probably broken, and you would need to replace the adjuster. Probably should order 2, because the other side will probably break too.

How to install Whirlpool 8268654 Adjuster


Kind of hard to explain, but all you need is a flat-bladed screwdriver to pry off the cover off the adjuster by pressing in on the 2 side tabs (remember the plastic will bend); remove the 2 side adjuster guides (by hand), use the screwdriver to pop out the little center piece, and then the wheel/adjuster assembly should fall out. If you have the new parts, you can look at them to help you figure out how to release the catches of the old parts.

Broken Height Adjustment


The 'rack adjuster' part numbers for my Samsung dishwasher were:
"SamsungDishwasher Rack Adjuster": DD97-00120A ($11.11)
"ASSY-BASKET ADJUSTER (R);DM1477,R-PJT": DD97-00119A ($11.11)
I ordered these from Partstore.com on 1/1/13 and they were identical to the original adjusters. I hope this helps.

Have Kenmore Elite 665 11yrs old, bakes soap on dishes top and bottom racks. Tried powder and liquid soap,no difference.Tried water heat with no rinse dry,no difference.


That seems like it's probably related to the recent ban on phosphates in dishwashing soaps. Quite a number of people have found that their dishwashers aren't working as well and are leaving spots and soap behind now that phosphates are not being used.
A little vinegar may help, but the best answer would be to use a water softener.

I have a Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher and the 3rd level spinner broke off. I have a new one and now need to know how to replace it.


the manifold in the back of the dishwasher needs to come out. you can either pop it all the way out it only undo it halfway if your arm is small enough.. there are either 2 tension clips or 2 screws holding it to the top and back. if you undo the top of the manifold and pull it down you should be able to slide the new part in place. the plastic push pin goes on top of the manifold and the spinner goes on the other side. it may be a little difficlt to push the 2 together..

Trying to replace broken upper rack adjustment arm . . .


first off check to see if there is an endcap either the front or back of the track. if so remove the cap. check for end mount screws. if no screws the endcap opens up the route for popping the plastic cover off and exposing the screws.. see diagram(may not be exact model but it gives you an idea)

Kenmore Elite


This is a guess but worth trying:

First, check to see if there is any food material in the drain area. There is a screen which may be restricted. This will restrict water flow. Second, if that doesn't work, there is a solenoid which directs water from the pump to either the drain or to the wash nozzles. It is probably stuck part way. It may be cleaned. I once found a toothpick in one!

Dishes not getting clean


brittgee, there has been a number of service flashes on this model. One that has to do with the upper spray arm assy. Complaint is poor washability; gritty glasses, food redeposited on glasses, especially in the corners. They redesigned the upper spray arm to improve water spray to all corners of the upper rack. The new part number is 8269022. They also redesigned the third level spinner for more consistant rotation and better washability. This was also under a service flash. Part number.8193768. Other reasons for poor wash would be; low water temperature, rinse aid disp. not working, loading etc. Catriver...post back.
