Are you in Canada, I can't find the info you need if you are. Although I'll try with Whirlpool in the morning for you.

The sequence of "Press Heated Dry, press Normal Wash, then press Heated Dry again and press Normal Wash again (that's 4 button-presses)" worked for us. Many thanks!

SOURCE: Where is the filter on a Kenmore Quiet Guard 2 dishwasher?

I have a Quiet Guard 4. Same problem so will describe my solution.
1. Remove bottom basket. Remove top basket.
2. Remove bottom washing arm. Unscrew (Gently but firmly) the centre post. Lift arm assembly up and out.
3. Remove overhead conduit. One screw at back, one at top (Philips #2 bit). Rotate whole assembly 45 deg right (Clockwise) and lift off of centre post.
4. Remove centre post (Pull straight up). Remove 4 screws (Star T-20 bit). Lift whole assembly out. Pop off screen and clean.
5. Remove cap over cutter/chopper. There is a single screw at front left (under assembly removed in 4). Remove screw (Star T-15 bit) and cap (Needs some wiggling to free it up). Remove cutter and filter. It is on a spring loaded pin. Pull the cutter blade foreward and then the filter disc straight up. Clean thoroughly as it may be the cause of your problems.
Reassimble. Good luck!

SOURCE: Kenmore Ultrawash Quiet Guard 5 making buzzing/grinding noise

I have a very similar dishwasher, with a very similar problem. I fixed it by removing debris from the water evacuator pump located towards the front of the bottom of the machine (the last motor before the drain hose. In my case, grape stems had clogged it up. Once emptied, it purrs once again. NOTE: don't disassemble the motor, just flush it out, there is an o-ring gasket that is a bear to re-install.

Kenmore dishwasher top arm not spinning (tried everything I know)


Your problem may be scale. Over time dishwashers are particularly susceptible to accumulated scale as a consequence of their use of high temperatures to clean which causes some water to evaporation (steam) leaving behind the minerals in the water. The scale builds up over time diminishing the size of water pathways and outlets and reducing the flow of water and it can build up in the connections and reduce the ability of spinning elements to turn freely. Treatment with a descaler can clear the problem but it may take several treatments. If the scale is thick it will actually come off in flakes and repeated disassembly and cleanout of the rotating arms & spray heads will be required. Commercially available descalers work well, a common 'home recipe' is vinegar or vinegar & baking soda

Kenmore ultra wash quiet guard standard. Very little pressure coming out of the jets. Doesn't clean the dishes.


sounds like hard water is the problem and may have clogged the jets. clean it out really well and get the dishwasher filtration system from www.dishwasherfilter.com. that will remove the hard minerals and leave your dishes and dishwasher spotless. awesome product and the results are guaranteed.

Spray Arms dont work, dishes dirty after cleaning cycle


Do the spray bars rotate easily? If not, you need to remove the spray bars and clean the insides out (do this even if the spray bars do turn easily.). Also check that where they mount is clean and free of debris.

Check the nozzles and make sure they are not plugged.

Also check that the inlet screen to the pump is not clogged (around the bottom of the unit).

Let me know what you find, and tell me if you can hear water spraying inside the unit during a wash cycle (and do the dishes get wet.).

I have the Kenmore Plus Quiet Guard, just wondering about filters as the water is not draining?? Anyone know?


It sounds more like a failed pump.
Does it circulate the water while washing dishes?
You might check the junction where the dishwasher connects to your drain under the sink. Often, they empty into the garbage disposal.  The inside of that junction has a tendency to clog with food (especially grease) and the pump of the dishwasher doesn't produce much pressure, it is more designed for volume.

Top rack not cleaning


Some dishwashers have a telescoping nozzle in the center on the bottom. If this is blocked by a large pot in the middle of the bottom tray, the nozzle will only extend up into the pot, and not be able to spray the entire top rack.

Also, some models have an arm mounted in the top. Check and see if it can spin freely, and if it's nozzles are clogged.

De-clog by soaking the part in vinegar.
