if unavailable on line, contact mfg's parts and you should be able to order it.
also, they likely do not make the unit. the sears may be able to tell you who made it. that company would be able to get you a diagram. just make some phone calls.

SOURCE: Maytag dishwasher quiet series 400. Dishes have hard stuck on grit and food particles after rinsed and dried.

Very common problem is soap build up in these machines. Try putting it into a wash cycle with no dishes, and no soap. Let it wash for about 5 minutes, and then open the door. If you see alot of soap suds, then soap build up is the problem. Try doing a couple loads with no soap, and no dishes, and throw a cup of vinegar into the machine halfway through the wash. Repeat as necessary. This should solve your problem.

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite Ultra Wash Dishwasher - top rack arm not spinning

Hi: I just posted a similar problem, but found a solution. After taking the arm, etc. apart (and verifying no blockages), I thought maybe the lack of water pressure was being caused by the fact that there are TWO holes for the top spray arm (higher and lower rack setting) on my model. ie. that water was being forced out of both holes, causing a drop in water pressure, which was causing the top spray arm to stop spinning. I plugged the unused hole with a wine bottle cork (to keep the water from spraying out the unused hole), and voila, it now works.

I wish all appliance fixes were this easy...!

SOURCE: Kenmore elite dishwasher leaves food particles on dishes

If someone is putting dishes in the washer and obstructing the spray ams that would cause food to stay on dishes. After loading dishwasher and pushing in baskets make sure the spray arm doesnt hit any of the dishes causing them to not clean properly. If that doesnt work or is definately not your problem try removing the spray arm and seeing if it has food inside of it. Some times they get food build up in them and need to be flushed out.

check and see if you are getting ac 110 volts to your water vave when trying to start the unit. if no power check your breakers and /or the incoming power to your dishwasher if they are ok and show 110 voltage coming to the unit then you probably have a control board or touchpad problem which would need a little more detailed check out.
If you do have ac 110 to your water valve then you may just have a bad water valve. Because the washer has to fill first. Hope that helps!!

My kenmore ultra wash quiet guard II isnt completely draining before the heat and dry cycle. can still see water around bottom drain


Check the owners manual, there could be a build up of debris in the drain, I had some paper products down around mine from washing jars and the paper from the labels can build up over time along with other foods that don't break down easy over time. There usually is a way to open up and check this area, good luck.

How do I get error code f2e2 off my dishwasher?


"F2 - A water leak, which if detected will stop water from entering the dishwasher via the inlet valve. You will probably experience the dishwasher not filling properly during a cycle. Possibly caused by a faulty water level indicator, you can also try cleaning the filters and drain if you notice a lot of standing water remaining in the dishwasher basin."

"Look in the bottom of the unit. Something has it stuck, like food."

sorry if this doens't solve your problem. This is what turned up with your keywords in a quick search engine query.

Dishwasher leaves cloudy grit on everything


Is your state one the banned phosphates? If so, try adding a tablespoon of TSP to the detergent. If not, is there galvanized steel in your water supply? The grit in most washing aids removal of food on the dishes but is supposed to be gone by the rinse.

Seems that food particles are "regurgitating" back up into the dishwasher and leaving grit on dishes - primarily glasses and silverware. Have had dishwasher probably 3 years -maybe less. Don't know what...


That "grit" you are referring to is actually coming from your detergent. It is part of the cleaning enzymes that assist in scrubbing your dishes. If it is ending up on your dishes, you are on the right track. You need to check the main wash pump and clean as necessary to ensure there are no obstructions on the sump area. The drain pump inlet is also in this area and should additionally be checked for debris. If you could please post back with a model number, I may be able to give you further guidance on how to disassemble the spray arm so you can access this area.

It sounds like your wash pump impeller might be clogged. The first symptom of this problem is poor cleaning capabilities and food left on dishes. You will need to remove the spray arm assembly to access the reservoir below the spray arm. More than likely, you will find debris clogging the the wash pump impeller area. As a general rule of thumb, you should not put anything into dishwasher that still has to be chewed. You don't have to prewash your dishes, just scrape them real well. Most detergents still need to oils and residue from food to activate the cleaning agents. If you prewash, you simply defeat this purpose. Some things that should NOT go into a dishwasher are lemon seeds, orange seeds, pistachio seeds, popcorn kernels, chunks of meat, bacon, tooth picks, chicken bones, match sticks, bottle cap liners, jar labels, etc. These are a small example of SOME of the things I have personally found in the wash pump. It doesn't take much to clog the pump, and the chopper assembly is not to be considered a disposal. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you need any further assistance.

Dishwasher


the water inlet valve is one of: 1.) electrically dead 2.) clogged with debris or: try this...unscrew the water inlet hose (after you turn off the water supply)...then clean the conical-shaped debris screen that you may find just at the entrance to the hose.
