Question about Kenmore Dishwashers
My kenmore 363 dishwasher has not been used for quite a while and does not do anything but hum when turned on???? What can I do to fix it and make it work??
If your dishwasher was working perfectly before this incident and all that has happened is no use, then the problem is with the motor. It's most likely some gunk/dirt has dried up over time and is preventing the motor from turning. The humming sound suggests the motor is trying to turn but is stuck. your motor and the assembly should look similar to this.
When you will need to do is take out the motor and the assembly from the washer and thoroughly clean the motor with some soapy water, you will have to seprrate the motor from the assembly to do this correctly, once the motor and the assembly are clean, you will need to apply lots of WD40 on both of them, try to turn the motor and keep appling WD40 until the motor starts to turn freely, clean and wipe with a dry cloth, leave it out for a few hours then reassemble and put back into the washer, this will resolve your problem, there may still be some humming noise but I'm afraid thats common to all Kenmore's.
I hope this helps and please don't forget to rate me.
