Question about Kenmore 24 in. 15932 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Kenmore 665.135 built-in dishwasher will not fill

We rarely use the washer, my wife was not happy with it from purchase.  Now that the warrantee is out, I find that sometimes it fills and sometimes it does not fill.  This can happen at the start or later in the cycle.  The over fill float rises and falls easily.  Based on other posts I'm thinking that the fill valve is malfunctioning.  How do you test the fill valve?

You can make a cheat cord out of a extension cord, it could show that the valve is good or bad, but since it does not fill all the time it could be the main control also

The blinking "clean light" is a common problem with some of the Kenmore and Whirlpool models dishwashers. The problem is usually attributed to water supply temperatures being too low when filling. Apparently, there are some issues with the temperature sensing circuits in some dishwashers that causes an error code to be generated if a certain water temperature is not achieved in a specified time interval (this time may differ between models). There is a reset sequence that you can try to clear the fault. Push the NORMAL WASH then HEATED DRY buttons in that sequence two to three times. The unit will enter diagnostics mode, but can be stopped by pressing the CANCEL button. This will clear any existing faults and should return the dishwasher to normal operation.

To keep the fault from returning, it is recommended that you run your hot water faucet in the kitchen until it runs hot BEFORE you start the dishwasher. This will heat the water in the supply line for the dishwasher (most dishwashers are fed from the kitchen sink supply line). The theory is that if you fill the dishwasher with hot water from the start of the wash cycle instead of the cool water that is normally in the lines (especially if you have a hot water tank located far away from the kitchen), this should satisfy the requirements of the temperature sensing circuits. If the fault reappears, there should be a tech sheet located inside the lower panel under the door that explains what the fault is. The flashing light will be a series of flashes, followed by a pause. If you indeed have a component problem, it will depend on the number of flashing lights in the sequence. Refer to the tech sheet to determine WHAT component is affected and how to troubleshoot.

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 Dishwasher won't fill


Not likely an air lock. When plumbing work is done the pipes ge shook up and then particles plug up the screens on these and washer and faucets. I would make sure the over flow float is properly working and then check the screen on the fill valve. Could be a coincidence and the valve failed but that is my last choice in this case. Eric

I have a washer that is not getting full of water


I don't believe the fill level is time dependent since we have very little or no variance in fill  and our well system can be anywhere between 30-60#.
By the way, I just noticed you posted under 'dishwasher.' I don't think you wanted that, I suggest you repost with the proper name and model number of your washer. I hope our dishwasher never gets 'filled!'

Kenmore dishwasher 58715142400 fills but doesn't wash


Motor has gone out..just like mine...Make sure u have voltage going to the motor, (disconnect the plug from the motor) and use an electric meter to make sure you have voltage going to the motor. If so the motor has either gone out or has been blocked by something! If no noise except clicking then motor has gone out. Looking at about $150 for motor.

6 months old. Now no water will fill drum! Works as normal but no water!


Hurlewan Your washer is still under manufacturer's warranty which is one full year. If it has Kenmore's name on it you do not need proof of purchase. The only thing you need is your mother-in-law's home phone number at time of purchase because Sears keeps all their records based on phone numbers. Good luck, Gendos post back....
