Question about Kenmore 24 in. 15252 / 15254 / 15259 Built-in Dishwasher
There is a spinner, part #8193768 located at the top of a Kenmore mod# 665.16362300 dishwasher. It falls off along with the retaining hub. I replaced the spinner and hub. I did not replace the top pin because the replacement parts didn't describe how to get to it.The replacement worked for about two month but it has fallen off again

Sorry to take so long getting back to you. Go to searspartsdirect.com and type your complete model number in the "Search by Model Number" window. Follow the links on the next page. You can also try repairclinic.com. The website offer competitive pricing with one of the other usually having the better price. The Sears website offers helpful parts diagrams. If you have any futher questions, please let me know.
NOTE: There may be a possibilty that you could have damaged the part you already replaced. It is recommended that you replace BOTH components at the same time. They are available as a SET on both websites I believe.
NOTE: Make sure your exhause ducting is clear as well before starting the unit or it will overheat and do the same thing.

I had the same problem, the 3rd level spinner falling off. Without getting into my saga story, save yourself some $$$.
-You will need a screw & washer to replace the plastic thumbtack. The screw will have to be able to screw into the female part of the spinner; the washer will keep the screw from falling out of the hole in the flat hose on the ceiling of the dishwasher.
-If you look closely at the spinner(the part that keeps falling off), you will notice it comes apart. With a flat head screwdriver, separate the 2 parts. (there are 3 parts all together; Keep the round center piece sticking out of the top peice)
--Remove the top drawer of the dishwasher to give you some room to work
-Remove the screw on the "ceiling" of the dishwasher(it is located further back from where the spinner goes) to allow the flat pastic tube to come down low enough for you to get in behind it.(set that screw aside in a safe place; you will put it back later)
-Remove the pastic thumbtack from the hole in the flat plastic tube if it is there & replace with a washer and screw.
-Take the top 2 peices of the spinner, together as assembled & screw the screw into the female portion of the spinner.
-snap on the 3rd piece of the spinner
-replace the screw you took out earlier, securing the flat plastic tube.
-place top drawer
Voila, you are done!! You just saved yourself $20+

one of the nylon rope which connects the door hinge to the door spring is broken.usually with time the rope wears out and break.it is preety easy fix. u have to pull the unit about half way out and look for ropes on lhs and rhs bottom of the unit.buy the rope kit(it comes with 2 ropes and plastic roller unit.). just see the one which is not broken and accordingly install the broken one.usually u dont have to install the new rolers unless they are broken.

go to www.searspartsdirect.com and you can search by your model number for the dishwasher or any other kenmore part. The schematics magnify as you mouse over them and then you can scroll down to see the matching part number. The part 3378117 is the whole hose assembly including the faucet coupler and the full length of the hoses. Notice that the part number 3378117 has been substituted with W10217197. When I Googled for "W10217197 dishwasher" there were a number of vendors selling that part including ApplianceZone.com selling it for $20 less than Sears and other vendors. Unfortunately the way the faucet coupler is crimped onto the hoses you have to replace the full length of hose [not just the coupler] but I have a problem that requires the whole hose. I've opened the cabinet up - which required a star headed driver - and from there it's just a matter of removing basic connectors inside the box.

I have an older dishwasher also and recently my wife also complained about it not cleaning right... so me being the man I am tried in vain to clean the things... Bought new spray arms online and installed them in minutes...now the thing works like new... However I have also found that if the heating element goes bad then that also can mess things up bad... So I would buy new spray arms, and also check out the heating element to make sure it is working... Here is a tip that will help you with the online buying...
