SOURCE: KENMORE DISHWASHER WATER DOESN'T SPRAY.

If there's no water entering your dishwasher, check these:

Water-inlet valve
Float switch
Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely
replace it. It's usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the device
with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two
wires attached to it.

Float switch
The float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below the dishwasher "floor."
Above the switch, on the inside of the dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills
the dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets caught or trapped in the raised
position, the water can't enter the dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it.

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite Ultra Wash Dishwasher - top rack arm not spinning

Hi: I just posted a similar problem, but found a solution. After taking the arm, etc. apart (and verifying no blockages), I thought maybe the lack of water pressure was being caused by the fact that there are TWO holes for the top spray arm (higher and lower rack setting) on my model. ie. that water was being forced out of both holes, causing a drop in water pressure, which was causing the top spray arm to stop spinning. I plugged the unused hole with a wine bottle cork (to keep the water from spraying out the unused hole), and voila, it now works.

I wish all appliance fixes were this easy...!

SOURCE: Kenmore elite dishwasher leaves food particles on dishes

If someone is putting dishes in the washer and obstructing the spray ams that would cause food to stay on dishes. After loading dishwasher and pushing in baskets make sure the spray arm doesnt hit any of the dishes causing them to not clean properly. If that doesnt work or is definately not your problem try removing the spray arm and seeing if it has food inside of it. Some times they get food build up in them and need to be flushed out.

Should the inside of the elite dishwasher still be wet at the end of the cycle?


Martha,
If you are talking about having a small amount of water down in the bottom of your dishwasher, that is normal. There is a sump down there that needs to have water in it. If you are talking about having water on the walls, that is probably just condensation from the cycle when you run the heater. Try cracking the door after the cycle is done to let the excess steam out of the dishwasher and that may eliminate the water on the walls. Hope this helps!

Kenmore Elite Dishwasher doesn't pump all the water out at the end of cycle


How much water? Does some drain out. If so its usually a dirty filter. Some Dishwashers have several filters underneath the bottom sprayer. Here is a link that may help http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/articles/authored/video-when-to-clean-a-removable-dishwasher-filter Also this link put in your model number and view how to clean your specific dishwasher. Hope this helps.

My Kenmore elite dishwasher 665.13793K600 has 2 problems: 1. won't drain water 2. won't even start working today Please help!


I have a Kenmore model # 665.13793K600 and it has been having a small puddle of water remaining in the bottom at the end of each cycle. I've taken it apart and cleaned it. I'm thinking I may have the drain hose incorrectly positioned or it could even be something unrelated. I can only think of the drain because I replaced the kitchen faucets a coupe of months ago and it could be since then that this has been happening.

The water pipes rattle violently in the beginning of the cycle.


My Kenmore 16464 dishwasher caused a buzz in the water pipes at the start of the cycle that I thought was just water hammer. It turned out to be a bad water inlet valve on the dishwasher that has water hoses (inlet and outlet) attached plus has an electrical connector. It is located near the front left underneath the tub. I pulled the dishwaher out and replaced it and all is quiet again. - Jim
