Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

After water turns on, nothing else happens

We have a freestanding Kenmore Dishwasher model 17425790 push button and a rotary nob for the cycles. When I first plugged it in and turned on the water ( which hooks onto the sink faucet ) the water turned on and everything seemed fine. But roughly 20 seconds later the water stopped in the machine and then just a soft humming started. The cycles seem to still be in motion because the nob is slowly turning and it is hot inside the dishwasher but that's it. I have turned it on and off. I have tried turning the water off and running the cycle. I have made triple sure the door is closed. I have attempted to restart the cycle.The water level *seems* fine. What do I do ? Please help!

If you are hearing a humm noise after it stops filling, your motor is locked up.

My kenmore 665 started pumping hot water without ever turning machine on


You might have a bad water valve, or a bad timer (especially if this dishwasher uses a mechanical timer - one that has a rotary dial in front).

Kenmore 300 model 110.28322700 won't run. motor makes humming sound


Pre Thanks for help.

I have read all above and these are my symptoms.
1. Washer fills, may or may not agitate, will not advance to the rinse cycle, and will NOT drain - lid switch.

however i tested my lid switch with a multimeter and the lid switch seems to be fine.

What else could be my issue?

Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher Problem


there is no real way of checking the keypad. Not with a meter but if you push normal wash for example and it does not respond this usually means that you have a bad keypad

I just read this for the same problem: push sanitize, then heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, cancel, then open and close the door. It worked. The dishwasher is running correctly even as I type this.

Start flashes and will not begin wash cycle


My dishwasher Model is 665 15891790 and the serie #FG3907905. After programing my dishwasher and pressing the start button, it fills with water, but when it is due to start the sensing light comes on. I have notice that the ring under the watering arm on the bottom of the machine seams to be cracked. Could that be the problem for the machine not starting its' cycle. Thank you.
