Question about Dishwashers

Doesn't always drain

My kenmore quietguard 4 does not always drain. I have found if I run it in pots/pans mode, it usually drains, but in other modes it recirculates dirty water onto the dishes and fails to drain at the end as well. We've checked and it is not plugged, as it drains some of the time. I'm thinking the solenoid my not be operating correctly, or maybe the control panel needs replacing. We would like to replace the part ourselves, but cannot isolate which part to replace. Thank you for your help.

Do you always rinse off the pans and pots and dishes before washing them. If not you may have food debree stopping up the works. Check the water drain intake. Open it up and check and clean the inpeller on the pump. Remove and inspect and/or clean out the hoses. Then finally remove the hose to the solenoid and turn dishwasher on for a moment to see if water will drain into a pan. Then replace your solenoid valve with a new one. Good luck!

Why does our dishwasher drain when large items are put through?


if your question is why does the washer drain first when pots and pans mode is selected? the answer is mfg. have realized that most everyone prerinses there pots and pans first , this makes a lot of water drips in bottom of washer this affects the volume of new water it can allow to enter , so they have made it pump out first for a \few minutes when first turned on in that mode ,it should fill after that and wash normally , also this is why its important to use soap dispensers and not just toss the soap in as it may get rinsed away in first few minutes and not get to wash cycle

Clogged frostless drain


Hello,
The drain pan is usually found if you pull the unit out away from the wall and remove the rear screws that cover the compressor. The hole itself is found under the evaporator coil which is most of the time located on the inside of your freezer behind the rear wall. You can access this area by removing the screws usually 1/4" and on some they are phillips head. One some units you may have to remove the shelving side rails in order to remove this panel which will give you access to the drain. If you have any further questions message me back.
Thank you
Rick

Kenmore Quietguard 2 dishwasher not filling.


There is a solenoid that keeps the water in the washer. It is either faulty or there is something preventing it from closing completely. If there is no power applied to the washer, does it then hold water?

Kenmore Ultrawash QuietGuard 3 Dishwasher not draining or rinsing


Not draining may either need new drain motor. or something is blocking the drain pipe.

Spots on dishes means you are using to much detergent or the wrong kind of detergent.

Your owners manuel should tell you what type to use.

Hi Claire,
Are you using rinse aid?
that may help with the film.you may also have stuff down in the trap causing the water to drain slow.

drain hose may be partially clogged or kinked up. ensure that the hose is not bent up thus restricting the flow of water out.

Miele g841sc dishwasher leaks


Typically the machine only uses 5-6 quarts of water, If you're floor is getting 1 or 2 quarts check for a loosly connected intake or drain hose. I've never seen any overflow drain on a Miele. It only fills the bottom of the tub. The machine uses a logic program that continuously checks the level of fill and drain by water pressure weight so it always runs with proper amount, even if your intake pressure is weak. Now, If you add too much soap then the bubbles can carry a few ounces over a worn door seal. If the seal is damaged then more spray arm water can run down the front of the machine into the float pan. But after it gets less than a pint of water the drain float will start thr drain pump and shut-off the machine controls and alert you. It won't let you run the machine until the water ( and the problem) is gone. Call Miele for help.
