Question about Kenmore 14249 Dishwasher

Open Question

Motor/relay(?) smells hot, wont do next, after cool runs ok

Kenmore 18in built-in model 587-14249990. Notes: the timer tests fine at all steps and the wiring & contacts to motor relay & motor (cant see actual motor contacts as wires go inside housing) look all good. I also fully disassembled lower arm unit & water gears etc down to just the motor shaft and all were clear & the motor shaft turns freely either way.

BUT the problem is- the dishwasher starts & runs fine (as long as its cool) from anywhere in the cycles I want, but after a few minutes in wash or drain, I notice a "hot" smell from motor/relay area when the motor is running. The next request of the cycle (be it wash or drain), the motor won't kick back on. If I stop the cycle & let the motor/relay(?) cool, then re-start in same place, the motor does whatever is next just fine until it heats up again. I hope its the motor relay & not the motor. Any ideas?? Thanks! Deb

SOURCE: Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher does not drain

Some Kenmore DW have a check valve attached to the sump that may have a blockage. Remove toe panel, look for a long, white, plastic fitting attached the front, right side of the sump. Remove the drain hose from the valve. Unscrew the valve from the sump and inspect for debris inside the valve.

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore dishwasher that will not pump

Look inside of the dishwasher to be sure that the tubes leading to the spray arms are not disconnected. If those tubes are in place, then the problem is with the main motor/pump in the base of the unit. That Kenmore part is about $150.00 plus labor. That being said, it may be time to consider a new dishwasher UNLESS your dishwasher is less than five years old because there is a five year warranty on the motor/pump. If it is under warranty, call sears repair and they should repair it at no cost to you.

SOURCE: kenmore dishwasher has stopped draining.

remove the kick panel below the door, place a pan, etc under where the drain hose connects to the drain extension tube, and slide the clamp back some so you can slide the hose off of the extension tube (white plastic tube) and drain any excess fluid into the aforementioned pan, etc., then unscrew the extension tube and check for plugs, or restrictions.
the sump may also be pluged beneath the strainer assembly, and that requires removing the lower spray arm, the water tube that runs up the inside back of the unit, and the upper parts of the assembly below them to access the drain/pump sump area.
last but not least the impeller is jamed and might be able to be freed by removing whatever has lodged within there..
ya never know...
best of luck,
ttfn

I have a Kenmore 70 series dryer. The dryer runs but will not heat. I have had all fuses, heating element, and thermostats tested but it still will not heat. Any thoughts?


Notes: Check all components on dryer with at least one wire removed and all have continuity or 0 ohms.
Have checked circuit breaker and know for sure 240 volts is going in machine (motor runs on 120v heater needs 240v).
Ok the next thing to do is find the heavy red wire going into the timer. Remove the red wire from the timer. Set the timer on heat dry cycle (power if off) Chck from that leg of the timer to any other leg on the timer for continuity. or 0 ohms. if you get nada then the contacts inside the timer is bad.

I just washed this morning and may have put alot of clothes in. Everything went through and when wife put in next load. it only filled up with water. and wont start...actually had a faint burned smell. ...


Probably not the main motor. That is a good thing. If you take the bottom panel off under the door, there is a technicians notes package and that has all the tests that you can run. IT will tell you what the problem is.

Kenmore 500 series gas dryer has no heat and no glow. Thermostat fuse has continuity. Replaced ignitor and coils. bypassed flame sensor and still have the same problem.


Hello,

Having checked or replaced what you have thus far here a few things still to check

Cycling thermostat in blower housing,in addition to thermal fuse it must have continuty to be good

Timer check wiring diagram in control panel and check for continuty that are supposed to be closed when set to a normal heat cycle

Motor switch heat circuit check again with wiring diagram and see which wires on motor switch must be closed when running so dryer will heat.This a built curcuit asurring the dryer will never heat when motor is off

If your model has it check heat relay in control panel for continuty on heating circuit for relay(not the circuit that closes relay)

as far as power to the ignitor the hot side comes from timer to and through the thermal fuse and cycling t-stat, to ignitor.the neutral comes from neutral wire on cord to and through motor when motor is running and motor switch is closed

so on ignotor plug check hot wire to ground(not neutral) if has 120 vac to it timer/t. fuse/ cycling t-stat and flame switch are all good and its the motor switch is the problem.The motor switch can not replaced seperatly and must replace entire motor

Runs hot air after awhile blow cool air


Model # tells me it is a convection oven. You can't dry clothes in a convection oven. they end up smelling like last nights dinner.

Please check the model #. there may be relay that controls the power to the heating element. this relay could be not functioning correctly, or it could be in the timer. maybe the thermostat that monitors the interior temperature is gone. It could be sticking closed. tough to say with the model number.

Humming sound and buring electrical smell


yes yes yes .you are absolutely right.its the coils in the motor burning.the motor needs replacement. Often the start relay for the motor sticks and makes the motor get too hot. This can cause the motor to over-heat and shut off on the built in safety sensor inside the motor. You may need to use a amp probe to test the motor properly, check model plate for proper amps.  If this is let go too long the motor windings can also be damaged ( they may look black instead of a nice copper color). The wires on the relay are also bad for burning off the wire terminals.   The wires at the motor should be checked to make sure they have not burned off or you can test the motor continuity with an ohm meter. See two newmotor wiring pictures.....here...and...here. The relay wires often burn off as well.

Kenmore air cleaner


I just bought the same model and also have the smell. My previous one did not so I returned the first unit and the second units smells the same. I called Sears Customer Support and they told me that it is probably due to the factory smoke test they do on each unit. He said let it run for a few days and it should dissapate. I went a step further and am trying a new filter and if this works he said call the store and they will get me a new filter.
