Drain hose may be partially clogged or kinked up. ensure that the hose is not bent up thus restricting the flow of water out.

Water is pooling in my kenmore ultrawash and it won't turn on either. I need to know if there's anything I can do to drain the water because I think it's refusing to turn on on account of that water p

First unclog your sink drains and the drain hose from the dishwasher. Once you are certain they are clear... Then you can do a couple things to remove the water. dip it out, or siphon it out.... or perhaps use an electric pump.

Kenmore Quietguard 2 dishwasher not filling.

There is a solenoid that keeps the water in the washer. It is either faulty or there is something preventing it from closing completely. If there is no power applied to the washer, does it then hold water?

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.

I have a Kenmore Quietguard dishwasher, only a few years old, and it won't drain. I pulled it out and checked the drain hose, could not find a clog. I took the basket and sprayer out, couldn't find any...

I have a Kenmore Quietguard portable that won't stay connected to my kitchen sink faucet. Checked all I can and continues to spray the wall and me without staying attached securely to the faucet adapter. Help!! Any ideas?

Will not drain

There maybe something stuck in the pump or the pump is bad. I have also seen obstuctions in the drain hoses comming from the pump causing it not to drain properly.

Kenmore Ultrawash QuietGuard 3 Dishwasher not draining or rinsing

Not draining may either need new drain motor. or something is blocking the drain pipe.

Spots on dishes means you are using to much detergent or the wrong kind of detergent.

Your owners manuel should tell you what type to use.
