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...!

The crackling noise is something caught in the pump housing area. This may eventually wash out but usually disassembly is reguired.

WDT790SAYMO dishwasher will not start. Appears locked. Help


Control Lock On

Use the Lock to prevent your dishwasher from accidentally being turned on. Use the Lock, also, to prevent accidental cycle or option changes during a cycle.

LOCK ON

When LOCK ON is lit, all buttons are disabled.

NOTES:

The dishwasher door can be opened while the controls are locked.

You can turn on the Lock while the dishwasher is running.

To turn on the Lock:

Press and hold NO HEAT DRY for 4 seconds. LOCK ON glows.

If you press any pad while your dishwasher is locked, the light flashes 3 times.

To turn off the Lock

Press and hold NO HEAT DRY for 4 seconds. The light turns off.

If the lock light flashes constantly this indicates that a key (or keys) is most likely shorted or stuck. If this is the case the console or touch pad must be replaced. The console is only available in black (part number 3384340).

Kenmore dishwasher does not dry


The first thing you should do is to turn off yourdishwasher. After that take your Kenmore 16762 Dishwasher manual and make sure ifheating element (calrod heater) is still functioning (it could be broken or burnt). In that case your dishwasher will not keep water hot during washing cycle). If you need manual you can download a copy here!

Water is not coming into my Maytag dishwasher.


Hi,
Is the door open or unlatched?Make sure the door is completely closed and latched. On models with a dual-digit display, the control displays "- -" during a cycle if the door is not latched. Check for obstructions (spoons or utensils), that may be interfering with the door operation. A lower dish rack that is installed backward will also cause incomplete door closure. The lights for cycles selected will flash if the door is opened while running a cycle.
Is there power to the dishwasher?Check your household electrical box to see if a fuse has blown or if the circuit breaker has tripped. If the unit has a plug-in power cord, make sure it is plugged in.
Does your dishwasher have a rotary timer knob?The cycle selection must match the position of the timer knob. Turn the timer knob to the beginning of the preferred cycle. The timer knob should click when you reach the start of the cycle.
Is the control lock option activated?
The indicator light next to the lock graphic will illuminate when the controls are locked. Press and hold the Heated Dry option (button with lock icon) for three seconds and the light should turn off. Instructions are also placed on the label on top of the inner door to unlock the controls.
Is the delay start option activated?To cancel the delay and cycle, press Start/Cancel twice.
Is the water shutoff valve turned on?Make sure that the water shutoff valve is turned on.
