One of two things could be your problen. 1 Check where the water enters into the dishwater, It is more than likely a blue plastic water valve. This valve has a small screen in it right after the end of the water line connection to prevent pieces of debris entering this valve. If you remove the water line look inside the valve, If there is debris in the valve remove it and your good to go if not then the valve itself has given up the ghost and needs to be replaced. Simple to replace this valve just make sure both the water and electric has been disconnected before any work is to be done. Water valves can be purchased at any appliance parts house just remember to take the model and serial numbers with you. Good Luck

I have a Kenmore ultra wash model 665, stock# 15951. When the tub starts to fill the water runs out the drain.


This means there is either an air gap in the drain hose or the drain hose loop is less than 32" high preventing back flow

Kenmore Dishwasher does not wash


Stew, Im not really sure what model you have 665, 587, 363 or what. If it's a 665, it sounds like the wash motor is not getting power. Remove the toe panel and look at the start capacitor. See if one of the wires came off during the reinstallation. Should be on the left side of the wash motor. If one of the wires is off, wash motor won't run. If that's ok, check the main harness to the motor. Catriver
