Question about Kenmore 24 in. 15142 Built-in Dishwasher
My dishwasher just fills with water but doesn't wash. Yesterday, the breaker had tripped while my wife was doing dishes. I flipped it back on and the dishwasher finished. I'm not sure where in the cycle it was. Went to do dishes tonight and the dishwasher just filled with water and never started washing. The heating element works and the tub fills, but then the timer just clicks through with nothing happening.
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.

Having same problem; dishwasher fills with water (and drains water out) but doesn't wash the dishes (arm apparently doesn't telescope up and swish the water around). The timer clicks through the wash cycle quickly and then seems to go through the heat cycle too long (some items melting that hadn't before). This is for a Kenmore Dishwasher Model # 587 15142400; Serial # 1162244841. I don't know when this dishwasher was purchased.
