    Kenmore dishwasher, Elite model 665.13439. Purchased in 2007. It just started howling. Otherwise, it functions fine. I presume it's the bearings on the motor. If anyone has another suggestion, I'd be interested in hearing it.

Run the washer first with nothing in it. see if your still hear the noise. only time it should make any noise is if there is not enough water also rotate the bottom jet and see if it turn s smood.

I have a Kenmore ultra wash model 665, stock# 15951. When the tub starts to fill the water runs out the drain.

This means there is either an air gap in the drain hose or the drain hose loop is less than 32" high preventing back flow

Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle

When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!

Clean light keeps blinking and I can't start a new cycle

Puppa, clear the fault by pressing the keys in this order: high temp scrb--air dry--high temp scrub--air dry. Or, depending on your model..Sani rinse--air dry--sani rinse--air dry. The dishwasher will enter the service mode. Let it do it's thing or advance it through it by pressing the start key. The fault came from the board not sensing a rise in the water temp. Make sure to run the hot water before starting the dishwasher. The heating element runs through the nuetral side of the door switch so make sure the d/w is level and the door switches are all making. The element itself could be at fault. back

Wash cycle not working...

Kerbri, it sounds like your pressure switch could be the culprit. Under the top console the switch will be on the left side. There will be a clear tube that runs from the tub to the switch. Take another piece of tubing about the same size in diameter, disconnect the tube to the pressure switch and connect the tube. Blow into the pressure switch and see if the washer starts agitating. If so, replace the pressure switch.. Another thing to check would be the harness to the motor, make sure it is on tight. Good luck
