Question about Kenmore Dishwashers

Open Question

Kenmore ultra wash #15765 will not drain. purchased 1996, web says no such model exist, but i have the manual, and it does, i need help . I have taken out the lower sprayer arm and the spinner that chops up the food left, even removed about 10 screws that hold down what looks like a filler but it did not allow me to remove it. How do i access the drain to see if it is stopped up. Do i need to pull it out from the counter and go from the drain hose,or somehow go in from the bottom??

It appears your pump has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Howe do you get the ultra wash module out of kenmore dish washer model665.749622


You will need the schematic manual that takes you through the steps when removing and replacing parts. Kenmore may have one free on line, and you will need to go the web site for that information.

I have a 5 year old Kenmore Ultra Guard Elit eQuiet wash 7. Seems to wash ok buut very loud all the time now. Do I need to replace motor or would a clogged drain make it do that.I don't notice a problem...


Hello,
This would indicate a bad motor, very common on these units. You can purchase the motor from the link below. Type your model number into the part search box for a parts diagram and part numbers.
