The flood switch might be turning on. This is the float unit at the base of the dishwasher. Could be the that the spring is faulty. Press and see if it comes back up. Otherwise there is leak in the dishwasher and water has collected at the base under the switch.

May need the actual model number to provide a more precise solution.

SOURCE: dishwasher not draining - Kenmore dishwasher model 15754

depending on the age of this unit it may have food blocking what is called the "check valve".
on most models it is mounted right on the outlet of the pump housing. one model uses a 4 inch plastic tube style device and is about 1/2 inch on the pump and 1" on the hose. inside of it is where the food items can block the check valve. remove the hose and unscrew the check valve from the pump and see if something is blocking it.
on newer units the check valve is built into the drain hose, if you hose has a 90 degree elbow molded into it where the hose hooks up to the drain pump. once again take the hose off and look inside the hose or try to blow through the hose and see if the hose is clear.
good luck tom

SOURCE: BUZZING SOUND WHEN RUNNING

It sounds as if there is something in the bottom part of the dishwasher arm (it sprays the water around the bottom of the dishwasher). I would suggest that you take out the baskets and then remove and clean all of the parts that water comes out of as well as the bottom drain. If this works or does not, I would also suggest that you run an empty load using 1/4 cup vinegar. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: dishwasher runs, water doesn't drain out

sounds to me that you may have some suds residue in the dishwasher that keeps it from draining completely. Get you some dishwasher cleaner which you can purchase at wal-mart or wherever you buy your detergent, and clean out your dishwasher. It is a inexpensive test. Alot less expensive than having a tech come to your house. Make sure that your drain hose is mounted higher that where it goes into the drain. This is also a common problem that I encounter in the field. Hope this helps. Let me know if I can help you futher.

Press the Cancel/ Drain cycle for a few seconds. The dishwasher should reset itself. See if this makes any difference. Also first turn the mains power to dishwasher off and back on.

Did you try turning off the power and then connecting it again?
If still problem is there open the door. Press the following sequence of buttons HI Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry,HI Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry. Now close the dishwasher door and latch it too and press the cancel button. This must reset the dishwasher.

Clean light flashes


I have found 2 possible solutions for you to try on your washer. It looks like there are good results on each of the sequences listed so you may try both to see what one works for you.

1) Press normal wash and heated dry one after the other about 5 times.All lights on panel will light.Wait until all lights go out and it resets itself.It will go into a mode on it's own.Then press cancel and set your options as you normally would and press start

On the hidden button models this seems to work, push these buttons in this order:
Heated Dry, Hi Temp Wash, Heated Dry, Hi Temp Wash, close the door, Start, open the door, Cancel 2x
