Question about Kenmore Dishwashers

1 Answer

My dishwasher won't drain, and leaked out onto my hardwood floor!

Originally, my dishwasher had become clogged from the cascaid gel pacs. Once the buildup was removed, it drained fine for awhile...now it's again holding water and it leaked onto my hardwood floor! Could the hose be clogged preventing it from draining?

I ordered a new hose and the problem is fixed! I probably could have just simply taken the old hose off and flushed it out; but the powdered solution, that is supposed to dissolve, had solidified and clogged the hose in several places. Strangely, it had also made like a filmy flap at both openings. Gross!

Periodically (once daily?) leaks up to one quart water onto floor.


This is a very common problem when the condesate drain behind the rear of your freezer wall becomes clogged with ice or other matter. If this is happining only under ther refrigerator it would indicate a drain pipe missing the condensate tray or the tray itself is cracked or leaking.

My dishwasher is leaking onto my kitchen floor.


This is most likely either due to a clog in the drain line or the seal around the sump being at fault. It depends where your unit is leaking from. If you remove the bottom kick plate from the unit you should be able to see where the water is leaking from if it is in the middle of the unit most likely you would have to replace the sump and sump gasket if it is off to the side of the sump then it might be the drain pump being clogged or blocked with something that is makeing it leak. If you have any further questions message me back and Thanks again for using Fixya

Dishwasher not draining


Hi,

Thanks for writing to Fixya.com.

To fix a dishwasher that will not drain, remove any clogs that are blocking the drain line by pouring a paste of baking soda, vinegar and water down the drain, and then pouring boiling water to clear the clog. Repeat the process several times to remove a severely clogged dishwasher drain. Thanks for contacting Fixya and please accept the solution if it has helped you.

Water is leaking from the front of the refrigerator freezer side onto hardwood floors it looks like it is comming from the back what would be the cause


Either the drain line is clogged and the condensation cannot drain to the pan to evaporate, or the door seal is not sealing properly allowing to much air (with humidity) into the unit creating to much condensation and overflowing the pan.


First locate the drain hole and line and make sure they are clean and clear. If you poor an 8 oz glass of water through it, it should drain out to the pan if it is clear.

If you find no clog inspect the door seals for cuts tears or any place that is not sealing properly.

GE dishwaher leaks with standing water in bottom


Check to make sure regular dish soap did not end up getting inside the dishwasher. This will create a lot of suds that will overflow onto the kitchen floor. Standing water from not draining can mean the drain hose is clogged somewhere or the check valve has something caught in it. If you remove the front kick plate, you will be able to check those.

Kenmore Ultra Wash Model 665 Dishwasher


Dishwashers which are properly installed and regularly used won't normally have a problem with bad odors. Check the following: ?Was the drain hose brought in at the top of the cabinet, or down near the floor? it must be 34" from the floor. ?Do you run the unit at least once every 2 days? -Run a cycle with a quart of vinegar to clean the tub and pump. ?Does the disposal tend to back up slightly when the dishwasher drains? Drain may be clogged. -Don't use gel detergent! ?Check your water softener(If so equipped) These can cause foul odors in the water supply if not properly balanced or maintained Good luck!
