Question about Dishwashers

Dishwasher won't go to next cycle kinda hums.

Hi,
I have a Kenmore undercounter dishwasher ( 665.16332301 )

The disheasher started have a minor squeek a while back but we really haven't noticed it for a while.

Currently the dishwasher seems to load with water and then kind of sound like it stuck getting to the next cycle. ( kinda a low hum )

Any ideas?

Thanks,

T

    Hi Mark,

    Thanks for your response.

    It seems like it fills with water, and then when it is ready to go into the next cycle( wash cycle? ) it just kinda hums and never really gets going. I was kinda hoping it's jammed with something. It does make a sound sort of like a fan would if you were holding the blade preventing it from moving.

    Thanks...

    Sounds like either the controller has failed, or the heating element has failed. Hard to say based on your description. Does this occur at the start of the washing cycle, or at some point in the washing cycle?

If you never hear it washing, then it sounds like the motor is not turning. There may be something that has gotten down inside the pump impeller at the bottom of the unit.

You will need to remove the baskets, remove the lower spray bar, then remove the lower plastic shield that covers the impeller. At some point you should be able to rotate the motor by turning the impeller.

What is the length of time for the Normal Wash cycle on the Undercounter Elite model? Mine seems to run about 2 hours. That seems way too long to me.

Nah... that is about normal for a dishwasher today....if all else fails just soak everything to death... no real cleaning anymore...

Dishwasher not moving past sensing cycle


humming noise sounds like a solenoid is not snapping in, this is not something that the average or even above average homeowner can fix. Solenoids go bad, they are a moving part that are activated by electricity, can be dangerous to mess with as water and electricity don't mix. Get a repairman or get a new one.

Kenmore dishwasher 15762


On the inside of the dishwasher (on the bottom), there should be a little "float" device, which tells the dishwasher when it has put enough water into the tub. Sometimes, this float gets stuck in the "up" position, so the dishwasher never puts any water in, but continues to run anyway as if it did. Try pushing down on the float to unstick it, then start the cycle over and see if it puts any water in.
