Kenmore Dishwasher Problems

I have a Kenmore Ultrawash Quietguard 4 that doesn't appear to be finishing the wash cycle.  There is water in it, all of the dishes are wet (and hot) when the green light, finished indicator is illuminated, but everyhing is covered with drippy soapy residue.  So the drying cyle was also bypassed. There is also still detergant in the open detergent dispenser. Its the liquid-gell type detergent too, so there can't be mush waterjet action going on in there. Any suggestions ?!

Thanks for any direction.

Kenmore Ultrawash Quiet Guard 5 making buzzing/grinding noise

I have a very similar dishwasher, with a very similar problem. I fixed it by removing debris from the water evacuator pump located towards the front of the bottom of the machine (the last motor before the drain hose. In my case, grape stems had clogged it up. Once emptied, it purrs once again. NOTE: don't disassemble the motor, just flush it out, there is an o-ring gasket that is a bear to re-install.

Can hear motor running but nothing happens in dishwasher

Hi, you need to test voltage to the water inlet valve. If you are getting voltage (120V) replace the valve. If you are not getting voltage check the water level switch located in the front corner of the tub.
If I can assist you any further with parts or part #'s, please let me know.

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.

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

One possibility is that the screen/filter to the wash units have become totally clogged. (I had this problem because of some particularly dirty water in the dishwasher.) To access the screen requires taking out the cover at the base of the dishwasher arm assemble which can be done without removing the machine, although you'll need a special screw spline screw driver. Given this the repair takes jsut five or ten minutes. Remove the screen clean it out in the sink and replace.
