    I have completely disassembled all internal water channels and cleaned them. I guess the pump may need to be replaced. Are there any tricks to doing it that I should know about? I think if I can rebuild the engine in my 67 Firebird, this should not be a big problem.



    Thanks

I would suggest cleaning out the filters of the machine and checking the float that is in the dishwasher this happens when there is inadequate water flow. I also woud suggest the diswasher cleaner that you put in the machine and run through a normal cycle this stuff works great.

The valves or orfices you can call it will need cleaning that spray the water out then try it again. If it is cleaning somewhat better but not good enough the pump my be ready to be resealed or replaced

My Kenmore Elite dishwasher did not drain the water out of the bottom after the dishes were washed last night. Could I possibly have pushed a wrong button to keep it from draining, or do I have a problem?...


Yes , If the program controller has hung it would have skipped the drain cycle. So try to redo the cycle and see if the drain works, is not check the program controller and the drain valve/pump.- if there is food particles that have clogged and blocked.

Kenmore Elite dishwasher will not dissolve soap or wash well.


Temperature should be 140F. and the units heater should energize during fill to achieve this.

Kenmore elite dishwasher leaves food particles on dishes


If someone is putting dishes in the washer and obstructing the spray ams that would cause food to stay on dishes. After loading dishwasher and pushing in baskets make sure the spray arm doesnt hit any of the dishes causing them to not clean properly. If that doesnt work or is definately not your problem try removing the spray arm and seeing if it has food inside of it. Some times they get food build up in them and need to be flushed out.

Kenmore Elite


Hmm, I'll start at the top :->. Well, first thing is that Kenmore doesn't manufacture any appliances. The only thing Sears has is the name recognition, therefore, they have GE, LG, Whirlpool, and others to make appliances for them and Kenmore slaps on their label. On with the problems though :-> 1. Door is grungy looking. Make sure your air-gap ( if you have one) is clear and not clogged. If you don't have one, make sure the drain hose is mounted to the underside of the counter, under the sink. This will prevent Gookus from backfilling into your dw. 2. There are 3 main things to check when repairing dw - Circulation, Heat, and Drainage. There's not much else. Here are some tips to address each one. a) Make sure all spray arms are turning. Put in one position, close door, run, open, and verifiy they moved. If not, clean holes in spray arms, or, remove filter and clean around impeller or chopper. I find clogs all the time. b) Heat. Make sure you are running your hot water in the sink until max hot water is reached. This is very important and should be listed in the users manual. Most dw's run several cycles before the heater element is energized. Water must be 120F when entering dw. c) Hard Water buildup. Use Lemon Shine, available from Walmart. This will clean the dw and prevent buildup on dishes. d) drainage. Addressed above. I've seen countless times where food and other gookus goes right down garbage disposal and into the dw drain line, where it recirculates on to dishes. Make sure air-gap is clear or that hose is secured to underside of countertop. e) Make sure the element is working. Once easy way to check is to verify dishes are dry at the end of the cycle. If not, call a service tech and get fixed. I've found black mold (splatter) on inside of dishwasher due to heater element bad. Hope this help!

Dishwasher dishes not clean


i am a retired appliance engineer of 20 years, (and whats a chopper), this problem can be easily improved maybe totally rectified, by making sure the salt is topped up and use rinse aid, make sure all the food catch filters are cleaned out and the waste outlet is also cleaned out, make sure blades are free to rotate and holes are not blocked, these are easy to remove and clean they just unclip. there is no need to dismantle the appliance hope i have helped , if so please rate me,

Dishes not getting clean


brittgee, there has been a number of service flashes on this model. One that has to do with the upper spray arm assy. Complaint is poor washability; gritty glasses, food redeposited on glasses, especially in the corners. They redesigned the upper spray arm to improve water spray to all corners of the upper rack. The new part number is 8269022. They also redesigned the third level spinner for more consistant rotation and better washability. This was also under a service flash. Part number.8193768. Other reasons for poor wash would be; low water temperature, rinse aid disp. not working, loading etc. Catriver...post back.
