Question about Dishwashers
I have a six year old Kenmore dishwasher model # 665.15892 100.
It fills up and drains fine. However it doesn't seem to activate the spray arms. Both arms spin freely when the machine is shut off. I hear a not so loud buzz sound when I should be hearing the swoosh of the spray arms.
I also had this problem and it turned out to be a small piece of a drinking glass that had made it all the way to the chopper and wedged between the blade and the housing. I was able to do all of the work from inside the dishwasher without disconnecting anything.

If it is filling with water properly then it sounds like the chopper screen is clogged so that water isn't getting into the pump. You can remove the top of the pump housing and get to the screen and chopper blade to inspect it. Go to sears.com, click on parts and enter your model number and you can view a diagram of the pump parts to help in disassembling it.
If the pump is not clogged then you have a problem with the impeller or motor. If this is the case you can replace the entire sump assembly just about as cheap as replacing individual parts of the pump.
Post back with any questions.

are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to
check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try
replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check
for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and
the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to
the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound.
seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve. Now, check if
dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check
whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after
the cycle is complete. Try cleaning the spray arm with a soft brush. The water
temperature plays a major role in cleaning of dishes. The temp should be
between 125 and 150 F for dishwasher to clean the dishes. Hope this helps...
