Question about Kenmore Dishwashers

Kenmore Dishwasher completes main wash cycle, drains but will not refill when rinse cycle begines

Starts, fills and completes main wash cycle. When thr rinse cycle begins, no power gets to the water solenoid valve, so doesn't refill. Circulating pump continues to run indefinitely. The main control board was replaced, as well as the soil/temperature sensor, but problem still persists.

    on the back of the water inlet is a power pin connector.

    test the call for power with a power sensor that you can get from a local hardware store or online.

  • GriffinJim Apr 19, 2014

    Have checked the pin connector, as well as the wire continuity all the way back to the pins on the main control board. Power is reaching the solenoid during the first fill upon start since that works fine, but not during the rinse cycles. That would generally indicate an issue in the main control board, but that was the first thing we replaced. Also replaced the sensor (soil and temp) with no change in results. Have measured the water temp coming into the dishwasher and it is over 120F.

    It would appear that there is some other condition causing the control board to not send power to the solenoid during the rinse cycle. Have also checked the float water level switch and that is working fine. Have also verified the continuity of the ribbon connecting the main control board to the control panel board, and it checks out OK. Also reset all of the connectors located in the door circuitry. Any other areas that you m ight direct my focus...? Thanks again for your help...!

SOURCE: GE Nautilus won't drain after Rinse Cycle

Check disposer plug. If a garbage disposer has been recently installed, it is possible the disposer drain plug was not removed. The drain plug is a plastic piece in the disposer that blocks the hole where the dishwasher hose connects. Also check the hose connected to the disposal. Mine apparently had a kink in it. When I straightened the hose the dishwasher drained at full speed (I recently had a plumber re-route a hot waterline. He must has bent the hose). Hope this helps. If not go to the GE website. That's where I found my answer.

SOURCE: LG LDF6810 Dishwasher Starts filling with water then pumps water

Because you are not getting an error message, I agree that the controller card is malfunctioning. Almost everthing else would triger an error.
Recommend replacing the controller card.

Larry,
The float is generally for overflow conditions and will interrupt power to the fill valve solenoid.
If you are not filling completely in the time allowed by the timer, it is most likely a flow restriction in the water supply. Barring other obvious restrictions, the fill valve has filter screens on the inlet side of the fill valve, which is generally the cause of your symptoms. Be careful if you attempt to clean the screens, as the fill valves are very sensitive to debris, and can become stuck open if sediment gets past the screen. I usually replace the fill valve to avoid future problems.
Hope this helps.

on an empty cycle fill the machine and use some C.L.R or other lime and scale remover in the machine and let it wash through the cycle.

try putting more water in the tub once the fill cylcle has completed and the wash cycle starts.Make sure the incoming water temp is at least 120 degrees.

if there is no change in the washing of the dishes
you may need to replace the main wash pump. if there is a change then you need to replace the fill valve or increase the water pressure to allow more water in the unit during the fill cycle

Hotpoint washer fills begins to agitate then refills continously.


Very likely your drain hose is set too low. You can solve this with a standpipe or a kit called a siphon break.
