KENMORE QUIETGUARD STANDARD BUILT-IN DISHWASHER 587.15149400. WHENEVER I TURN IT ON THERE IS A LOUD HUMMING NOISE AND THEN IT GETS QUIET. I GUESS IT IS WHEN THE WATER IS SUPPOSED TO SPRAY B/C IT'S NOT SPRAYING OR CLEANING THE DISHES. WHENEVER IT IS DONE RUNNING, THE DISHES ARE STILL DIRTY AND SOAP IS RUNNING DOWN THE DOOR. PLEASE HELP..

    YES THERE IS WATER IN THE DISHWASER AND ON THE TOP OF SOME OF THE DISHES SO YOU CAN TELL AT SOME POINT WATER WAS SPRAYED AROUND BUT SOMETHING IS WRONG.

Do you have water in the dishwasher after the loud humming noise? Sounds like you have the water to the dishwasher turned off, or you have a bad water fill valve. Make sure your water to the dishwasher is turned on completely, test you dishwasher, and let me know if you have water in you dishwasher after the first humming noise, or later in the cycle. Thanks, Appliance Specialists

    It sounds like your water is not being sprayed at the proper pressure inside your dishwasher. You either have too low a water level in the dishwasher, or a restriction in the filters, motor sump, ect. that is not allowing the proper water flow. When the dishwasher is spraying water inside, open the door quickly and see if the water is shooting out of the spray arm and how high it is spraying. If it looks weak, then add water with a large cup or water pitcher. Raise the water level another half inch at least, close the door, let it run a minute and check to see if the jets are stronger now. If they are, then you probably have a restricted water fill valve, and will have to replace your water inlet fill valve. Debris gets trapped in there and doesn't allow enough water to get into the dishwasher for it to spray at the proper pressures. If your jets are still barely spraying then you have debris blocking your drain sumps or in you recirculating motor. You will have to empty your dishwasher, turn off the power, and remove the spray arm, the base, the filters, the motor cover, until you get to the recirculating motor impellors. Clean everything out, make sure there is no debris, make sure the spray arm jets are clear of any food. Reinstall everything and test again. Removing all of the parts to get to the recirculating motor impellor is pretty involved, so if you are not sure you can do this, call a serviceman to check it for you. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

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?

Hello, i have a Kenmore Quietguard standard dishwasher. it is in the "lock" position under dry options and the dishwasher will not start. can you tell me how i might be able to re-start this?


On our Kenmore Quietguard the lock light is at the Air Dry button. Holding the Air Dry button for about 8 seconds turns the lock light off if it is on and on if it is off.

I have a Kenmore Quietguard dishwasher, only a few years old, and it won't drain. I pulled it out and checked the drain hose, could not find a clog. I took the basket and sprayer out, couldn't find any...


I have a Kenmore Quietguard portable that won't stay connected to my kitchen sink faucet. Checked all I can and continues to spray the wall and me without staying attached securely to the faucet adapter. Help!! Any ideas?

Loud humming noise when dishwasher is filling up with water


your model is pretty new. just so you know your warrenty is 1 year parts and labor. 2 years on parts. it should not cost that much money.

there are two components that start before the circulation pump.(wash noise you hear)

first sounds you hear will be the drain pump. usually rattling noises if something is in it but it can make a hum noise if something is jamming the drain propeller up. which is accessible with a T20 torx driver. take the filters out and the mesh filter. and unscrew the screw in the base towards the left. pull out whatever is lodged.

the other humming sound can come from the next component that activates is the watervalve. make sure you dont have a kinked water intake line. otherwise its a bad valve. i have had to change a few of those water valves out already but not for a hum noise on your model. you have a new style water valve. when brands make new parts we get problems fast sometimes..

The IRONY of my Quiet Guard!! SO LOUD!!!!


Yes the wash arm can be removed to get to the sump area. Take the model number for your dishwasher and enter it into a site like partselect.com. There you can get a blown up diagram of the components that need to be removed to get to the cause of the grind noise. Usually a seed or some other hard object has found its way down there.
