Question about Kenmore 24 in. 17669 Free-standing Dishwasher

1 Answer

Model 17615 Kenmore freestanding dishwasher

We accidently dumped about 1/2 cup of sunflower seed shells in the dishwasher. Kids tried to run it anyway and now there is a loud noise comming from the bottom. We tried to take the round parts out of the inside and see if we couldn't get to the seeds but there is a round gray disk that spins when we ty to loosen the nut. Are we even on the right track?

Is it too hopeful to think that they will somehow drain out themselves? Please help!

    Thank you for responding. I guess I should be a little more clear about my specific question. When we were dismantling the base, we couldn't loosen the screw in the middle of a gray round piece of plastic because it would spin with the screw. And when we tried to hold it with a plliers or crescent wrench it broke a little piece off. It seemed to be very fragile and we couldn't hold it tight enough to loosen that screw. Now we're stuck.

You are on the right track, just dismantle what you see inside the base, but remember to note what goes where and in what order, also the waste pump could now be blocked, normally one or two or a small amount of seeds would work there way through, but may take time, and some could be lodged in the pump blade

have patience and work with care its not a hard job and should be right once cleared out

How do I keep squirrels from eating my sunflowers?


Give the squirrels another source of feed/seeds.

1.Give the squirrels their own feed away from the location to which you will be growing the sunflowers.

2.Do this before growing the sunflowers. This will get the squirrels in a pattern and to a location away from your sunflowers.

3.Keep the squirrel food container (s) full at all times. If thesquirrels are full they will not have reason to eat the sunflower seeds.

Squirrels would rather eat peanuts, seeds, oats, breads, and/or what ever you want to give them over your sunflower seeds.

** To get the old squirrels away from a location they occupy now, is to train them away from it.**

Gradually move their food source away from any location they go to now.

Once you have them following the food, keep moving it until the foodsourced is in a location you would prefer the squirrels to go to forfood, rather than the squirrels eating your sunflowers....

Good Luck!

How do you select good sunflower seeds?


Just as with any other food that you may purchase in the bulk section, make sure that the bins containing the sunflower seeds are covered and that the store has a good product turnover so as to ensure the seeds' maximal freshness.

When purchasing unshelled seeds, make sure that the shells are not broken or dirty. Additionally, they should be firm and not have a limp texture. When purchasing shelled seeds, avoid those that appear yellowish in color as they have probably gone rancid. In addition, if you are purchasing sunflower seeds from a bulk bin, smell them to ensure that they are still fresh and have not spoiled.
