Question about Kenmore 24 in. 15079 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Dish Washer retains the water without draining....

I have a Kenmore Dishwasher Model 665 about 8 years old. After the wash is done, the water still remains at the bottom of the machine. It goes thru' the whole cycle without shwoing any problems, but at the end water remains. Cleaning is not neceeasrily great. I tried just draining the water but the water does not drain.

Is ther an issue with the drain valve?? Do I need to replace it and if so how? What m,ight be the cost I am looking at? Is it worth it it repair it than replace??

Please advise....!
Thanks..... Shekh

The drain pump is fairly easy to replace. it locks into place beside the sump and motor. push tab in and rotate pump to pull out. you will lose water so have a towel handy. inspect drain hose for restrictions or kinks.

No reaction when start button is pushed on Kenmore UltraWash model 665 dishwasher. The clear /drain button works. No water filling


you have a bad water valve or bad user interface that's the long control in the front of the dish washer.

I have a kenmore 665 dishwasher where the spary arms do not spin.


  • First, check water level. Start machine, wait until the machine begins main wash. Open the door, the water level should be just below the heater element. If too low replace inlet valve.
  • If you can't hear the wash motor running or is just humming, the motor may be bad.
  • To check if the food chopper is blocked or broken;
  1. Remove lower spray arm by holding the arm and rotating the spray arm retainer.
  2. In the back of the tub, unclip or remove the screw from the upper spray arm supply tube.
  3. Rotate the lower spray arm support to the right while disconnecting the supply tube from it.
  4. Remove the four torx screws from the sump cover, remove assembly.
  5. There may be a primary filter in the left side of the sump, if so, remove the torx screw and the filter.
  6. On the right side there is the chopper assembly cover. Remove the torx screw and cover to expose the chopper.

Hope everything goes well for you,

Regards

My dish washer does not drian completly


the water must pump uphill to the air gap. the last water in the line drops down the hose, and is in quantity equally to the volume of the hose from the bottom of the pump to the top of the hose. that flows to the bottom of the sump in the unit. if enough, it appears as residual water in the bottom. its ok.
