The filter needs to go back on first, then the arm has notches so that it'll tight down, you need to rotate the arm till it falls in place, then the white handle is used (Goes around base of arm) to tighten it into place.

It appears your dispenser wax switch has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

It doesn't drain all of the water out after cycle is complete


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
Dishes not getting clean is caused by either a restricted drain, (usually the problem) or larger than usual particulate under the lower wash arm tower.
The restricted drain can manifest itself:
- At the pump outlet, (remove hose and inspect drain port)
- At the air gap at the sink (remove cover by lifting straight up then unscrew the inner cap nut and remove the particulate) NOTE the installed position of the upper cap under the nut as it will only go back together in one position)
- At the Air Gap outlet hose connection (remove hose and inspect plastic tubing)
- At the sink connection. This can be either a direct plumbing connection or a garbage disposal connection. (remove the hose and inspect drain connection.)

As far as the lower wash arm tower
- Remove the lower wash arm.... NOTE the stack up of parts... it only goes together one way!!!!
- Remove the lower wash arm tower screws
- Lift off the lower wash arm tower and clean the screen area.
- Remove the screen and check in the pump impeller area for a broken impeller or damaged pump housing.

I really need the long model number if you need further assistance. The model number will look like this 220.13599000 but the numbers could be something much different. (This example is for Kenmore)

Kenmore dishwasher #665 only sprays water for a sevcond. will run cycles just won't spray more than a second


This is a sign of food particulate that is blocking the impeller inlet under the lower wash arm. Remove the lower wash arm noting EXACTLY how it comes off as you remove it. Then clean out the particulate. You may have to unscrew the lower wash arm tower also to get to the particulate.
Once yopu get it cleaned out it should work just fine. This does not happen often but..it does happen. It should not repeat anytime soon.

If you need exact instructions with part details I will need your full model number.

I think this is your dishwasher:

You may have to remove Item 14 (ONLY) to clean off the screen Item 1

Kenmore Dishwasher 665.15789300 not washing, but gets water


The chopper blade assembly with in the pump housing is either clogged or broken, to get to it, you must remove spray arm and remove screws from filter housing. These are size 20 torx, inside sump are 2 more screws size 15 torx, after these are removed you can clean out chopper or replace it.

I have a kenmore 665 dishwasher where the spary arms do not spin.


  • First, check water level. Start machine, wait until the machine begins main wash. Open the door, the water level should be just below the heater element. If too low replace inlet valve.
  • If you can't hear the wash motor running or is just humming, the motor may be bad.
  • To check if the food chopper is blocked or broken;
  1. Remove lower spray arm by holding the arm and rotating the spray arm retainer.
  2. In the back of the tub, unclip or remove the screw from the upper spray arm supply tube.
  3. Rotate the lower spray arm support to the right while disconnecting the supply tube from it.
  4. Remove the four torx screws from the sump cover, remove assembly.
  5. There may be a primary filter in the left side of the sump, if so, remove the torx screw and the filter.
  6. On the right side there is the chopper assembly cover. Remove the torx screw and cover to expose the chopper.

Hope everything goes well for you,

Regards

My kenmore dishwasher isn't cleaning the dishes very good


Your broblem is probably the cutter/chopper filter. This is located under the bottom cleaning arm assembly.
Remove the baskets.
Remove the bottom washing arm. Unscrew the centre post and lift off the arm
Remove the conduit to the top arm(s). Remove screw at top and at back. Rotate the conduit assembly 45 deg right and lift off.
Remove 4 screws (Star T-20 bit) and lift whole assembly out. Pop off screen and clean.
Remove cap over cutter/chopper. There is one screw at left front under assembly just removed. Remove it and the plastic cap (Needs some wiggling to free it up). Remove the cutter and filter. It is on a spring loaded pin. Pull in foreward and also lift the filter disc up and out. Thoroughly clean the filter.
Reassemble

Whining noise with Kenmore 16032 dishwasher


I had a similar issue, I removed the lower spray arm (had to hold center plastic tab with pliers and then unscrewed and lifted up the arm). Then I removed the cover with the screen filter(4 screws) and then removed the top half of the stainless chopper housing (1 screw). Found that things like cherry pits, elastic bands, bread plastic ties had blocked the water inlet to the chopper and the area around the chopper blade. Cleaned it all up, reassembled and machine works great! Mine was so blocked that I was hardly getting any water pressure to the upper rack.

Need to remove wash module


You should be able to hold the spray arm and unscrew the center section to remove the entire assembly. Be aware of any washers or other parts that need to be re-installed when putting it back on.
