Question about Kenmore 24 in. Elite Built-In Dishwasher w/ Ultra Wash Filtration

Open Question

Kenmore elite dishwasher fills with water, but no circulation of water. Spray arms do not move at all. Drains well.

Spray arms do not move,dishes do not get wet. Technician came in and said motor is bad. Ordered motor and went away. Second technician came in and said there is a loose connection to motor and fixed something without replacing motor. Worked fine for a couple of days and the problem returned. Where can I find a circuit diagram or how can I know which wire is loose ?

    Last time the technician said he fixed a loose connection it did work. But only for a coupel of days. Then the same problem came back. The filter is clean and there is nothing in there. Clearly the wash motor is not going.

SOURCE: wash cycle

Check first that the filter located inside the machine (on bottom) is clean. In case it clean - The problem is with the pump. It could be a blockage between pump and the tub, or just a defective pump (The pump takes suction from the tub and forces water up through the spray arms, which spray the dishes. The water then simply drops back into the tub for recirculation). Good luck !!

SOURCE: "Sensing" Light

There is a relay on the soap dispenser, if it is a Kenmore quietguard 4, I had the same type of noise, the repairman replaced the dispenser, which to me made no sense, because the relay is activated from the control board. After the $130. for the soap dispenser, he ended up replacing the control board for another $160. Now the dishwasher only goes up to the dry cycle and stops. If you press the heated dry button and then the heated wash button 5 times each, the entire control face will light up and it will do some kind of reset and try a new cycle. I have tried the button pushing and it worked great till it got to the dry cycle, so I am looking for another solution without involving Sears. Good Luck!

Check spray arm for obstructions and if it is clear the motor impeller could be slipping or water system may need a good cleaning with CLR.

Dishwasher fills with water but does nothing else.


If your dishwasher drains and fills as it should and cycles normally, there is a problem with the spray arm assembly or recirculation pump. Esure that the spray arm is not clogged. Manually free up moving parts if the assembly can be removed.

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.

Sometime objects tend to build up under the screen and around the circulating pump. These objects will block the water ports and cut the ability of the spray arms to rotate. If you are carefull you can disassemble the unit under the bottom spray arm and inspect/clean the screen and circulating pump.
