Stopped running. Water left in bottom. Dishes do not appear to have rinsed completely. Will make no noise at all. It is a free standing unit that has been built in.

Hi,

at the sink is usually there is a small areator deal that hisses when the dishwasher drains, pull the lid straight up and off of that and unscrew the inner white part, study that area and clear with debris. if thats not it check the float switch inside the tub for an obstruction, its towards the front and its round, it should move up and down and click, if either of those dont do it, take out the bottom rack and begin disassembling the grate, and the inner grate. get all the way down to the sump to check for obstructions
also if you have kids or toddlers and the dishwasher has a knob, you might want to ask them if they might have tried to turn the control knob backwards. if they did, they bent contacts in the timer and thats around 75.00.

good luck

Very Loud Noise when dishwasher starts


It is likely the sound is coming from the rinse aid dispenser solenoid. (I am assuming you do not have a water softener unit on your dishwasher). Try to run the drawer on a Rinse cycle and see if the noise is still coming.

Water seems to be hot enough, drains properly, arnms not blocked, dishes not being cleaned at end of cycle. Almost seems like it is skipping the wash cycle.


Hi smiller8565,
There is 3 basic problems that will cause a dishwasher to not clean the dishes. You can check these problems and see if any will solve your problems.
1: If there is water or suds left in the dishwasher after the cycle is complete. This will cause dirty water to be used in the final rinse and the dishes will not get clean.
2: The pump that supplies water to the spray arms is jammed or defective and unable to pump the water properly, thus causing the dishes to remain dirty.
3: Timer, the timer is not allowing the machine to work in the wash cycle.
The solutions for these 3 are as follows.
1: check the drain line for blockage, if you have a disposal make sure it is clear and water flows down the drain properly. If you have suds left in the dishwasher, clean them out and run a couple cycles with not detergent to rinse away the old suds.
2: Look down in the bottom for any obstructions in the pump. Popcorn seeds, broken glass, etc.
3: If the unit is skipping the wash cycle you will most likely need a new timer or control assembly.
Good luck and I really hope this will Fix Ya

No water is coming out of the spout in the dishwasher


I am experiencing the same problem on my kenmore dishwasher (model: 665.1702). there appears to not be enough water spraying out of the washers as the soap is still in the dispenser at the end of the wash and the dishes are dirty. I've tried removing the bottom washer but can't figure out how to remove it. Did either of you find a resolution?

Top rack dishes have grainy particles on them after washing and will not come clean.


Run the dishwasher and observe the spray arm,if split it will spray water down: Also check water in tub, is it filling up sufficiently to get near the heater? If it has a upper spray arm does it spray water? If not you may have a clogged upper spray arm.

Check to see if you have any switches on your dishwasher that could by pass a rinse cycle. Use a hotter temparture when washing, Check your water level,check your filters on your inlet hose top and bottom. When it gets to a rinse cycle you should hear it drain out and bring in fresh water. you could change to a liquid detergent. Dont over load your dishwasher. make sure you are using rinse aid and try adjusting it up one setting. Shiney glasses means your rinse add is working. NZL
