Question about Kenmore 24 in. 15162 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

I have a Kenmore Quietguard dishwasher, only a few years old, and it won't drain. I pulled it out and checked the drain hose, could not find a clog. I took the basket and sprayer out, couldn't find any clogs there. It seems to be making a little bit of a different noise but does still clean the dishes. Does the motor pump the water out and could that be the problem?

I have a Kenmore Quietguard portable that won't stay connected to my kitchen sink faucet. Checked all I can and continues to spray the wall and me without staying attached securely to the faucet adapter. Help!! Any ideas?

Check the motor pump housing for an obstruction on the impellor. Impellors can go bad and not actually churn the water around the way they are supposed to.

Hi we have a Kenmore Dishwasher Model # 13744K and it won't turn on. It has water in the bottom that won't drain. Please advise. Thanks. John Webster.


For a dishwasher that was rated pretty high by Consumer Reports, it does not clean very well. In addition, the plastic control button cracked in less than a year and I must constantly clean around the inside of the door ... and I never received my rebate.
Despite those issues, it has been a workhorse. My wife is a daycare provider and the machine is used twice a day (on average) and still runs well. On a monthly basis, I alternate a pint of lemon juice and a pint of vinegar to keep it clean and once per year I use a granulated dishwasher cleaner.

I have a kenmore dishwasher #665.16022400. It does not completely drain at times, and quality of cleaning seems to be down. It is 3 years old.


In my experience, a clogged drain hose is usually the culprit here. If you have an air gap, I found it is useful to open up the air gap and run a still, long wire down the hose to dislodge a clog and then drain the dishwasher again. Rice is what usually clogs mine.

Kenmore Quietguard 2 dishwasher not filling.


There is a solenoid that keeps the water in the washer. It is either faulty or there is something preventing it from closing completely. If there is no power applied to the washer, does it then hold water?

Dishwasher wont drain


Hi,

There is a check valve that would prevent you from blowing back into the machine. I would recommend taking that hose and putting it into a bucket, turn the machine on and see if it drains, if so you have an issue with the house drain if not then take the hose off the machine. You can take the toe panel off with a couple of screws and the drain hose should be right up front. Have lots of towels ready to catch anything.

My 10 year old dish washer won't drain. After a cycle, it leaves a few inches of water in the bottom


hi..
There is a drain hose for your dishwasher that often gets clogged. Remove the drain hose and clean it out. reinstall the hose and your dishwasher will drain. The dishwasher should have a panel to remove and then comes out easily, just be careful not to pull it out too far. If this does not fix then you may need to throw some parts at it, but hopefully not. Good luck

thank u
rate me!!

Kenmore Ultrawash QuietGuard 3 Dishwasher not draining or rinsing


Not draining may either need new drain motor. or something is blocking the drain pipe.

Spots on dishes means you are using to much detergent or the wrong kind of detergent.

Your owners manuel should tell you what type to use.

Hi Claire,
Are you using rinse aid?
that may help with the film.you may also have stuff down in the trap causing the water to drain slow.

drain hose may be partially clogged or kinked up. ensure that the hose is not bent up thus restricting the flow of water out.
