If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. This could be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (located under the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).

Also, There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. Make sure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray arm.

Check the manifold as well for clogs.

Another spot will be a malfunctioning wash impeller. i would inspect the wash impeller as well. it is responsible for the flow or water during the wash.

Kenomore ultra wash dishwasher will not clean dishes- water pump may be out? How do I perform self diagnostic test?


check and see if both wash arms are turning first.
does the lower arm turn but the top arm does not?
Another way to check to see if your upper wash arm is turning is to put a mug in the top rack upright. close the door and turn the dishwasher on if it fills the mug within 2 minutes you are getting proper curculation.
you press heated dry and high temp wash and toggle back and forth within 6-8 second. all the lights should light up and it will go into diagnostics.

The dishes are not being cleaned.


clean the arms of any food debris,then if this doesn't solve the problem,replace the water channel conduit that runs up the wall of the inside of the dishwasher,after years of water pressure it will erode the fitting on the wall and rack and when the drawer rack is pushed in to wash,water will get past the o-ring on the conduit and you will lose water pressure and the arm will not function properly,replace it from the sump to the top,its not that expensive and it will assure full pressure

You need to remove the wash arms by turning the nut in the centre of the arm and remove,then unblock the holes that are in the arms and replace them,test if the arms now turn and you can see a differance then also check there is salt in the salt dispensor located at the bottom of the machine.

The most common cause for no washing is a failed wash pump motor. Which is probably the single most expensive part to have replaced on a dishwasher.

Dishwasher runs but does not get dishes clean


1.) Confirm that the holes of the spray arms are not blocked with debris.
2.) Run a short cycle with an empty dishwasher and no dishwasher soap. Run the dishwasher until you hear it finish filling with water and begins the wash cycle. Add up to two cups of white vinegar to the water and allow to wash and drain. Feel free to do the same when the dishwasher fills again.
3.) Only use a brand name powder detergent (e.g. Electrosol or Cascade) in any dishwasher. Do not use a gel or tablet in any dishwasher. Do not fill the dispenser fully.
Test your dishwasher with a standard load of dirty dishes.
If problems continue, confirm that the heating element is working properly. The heating element is vital to getting clean dishes with modern dishwashers and DW detergent.
Please report back what you find.

The dishwasher fills up with water but will not spray water.


This is a comen problem here is how to solve it and prvent it in the future.
First you need to remove the wash arms top and bottom then look and you will see a few ole in the arms both sides these are more than likely blocked with small bits of food clean the hpoles and rinse the arms make sure all the holes are open and replace the arms.If this is the case in future scrape the plates off in the bin and rinse any loose food off in the sink before washing the dishes in the washer,give this a try and let me know how it went.

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 !!
