Water is pooling in my kenmore ultrawash and it won't turn on either. I need to know if there's anything I can do to drain the water because I think it's refusing to turn on on account of that water p


First unclog your sink drains and the drain hose from the dishwasher. Once you are certain they are clear... Then you can do a couple things to remove the water. dip it out, or siphon it out.... or perhaps use an electric pump.

There is a loud noise while going through final stages of wash. Sounds like pump motor whineing.


Hello

When an appliance such as a dishwasher starts making a new noise, you need to isolate the cause of the noise so that you know whether or not it is damaging the machine. Several things can cause a noisy dishwasher.

Motor

Dishwashers are driven by an internal motor that gets quite noisy when defective. The problem occurs when a seal breaks down and allows water to access the bearings in the motor, removing the grease needed for proper lubrication and creating a loud motor noise when the dishwasher runs. The seal or bearings need to be replaced in this situation quickly or more extensive damage to the motor may occur.

Inlet Valve

If the inlet valve on your dishwasher is broken or breaking, you will hear a distinctive thumping or clattering noise whenever a load is run. A thumping noise doesn't always indicate this problem, however, depending on when you hear it. If you hear a noise like this when the water is filling up the dishwasher at the start of the cycle, the noise likely points to an inlet valve problem.

Squealing

A high-pitched squealing noise is an indication that something is wrong with the fan. Fan bearings that are worn out indicate that the fan apparatus needs to be replaced. If the noise you're hearing is in fact coming from the fan, it will only occur when the dishwasher is drying the dishes. Dishwashers use a fan to generate and distribute heat to dry the dishes quickly.

Minor Concerns

Sometimes even a minor concern can cause a great deal of noise. The thing to watch for is whether or not the noise repeats itself on multiple loads. A loud noise on a single load that doesn't repeat could be caused by things like a loose utensil or small implement rattling around loose in the dishwasher. Also inspect the bottom of your dishwasher. Hardened bits of old food can become rock hard under the heat in the dishwasher and cause noise when the unit runs.

Kenmore UltraWash Dishwasher is leaking from black hose...


No you will have disconnect the copper line. I would suggest that while you have it out that you replace the copper line with a braided stainless steel hose (also known as a dishwasher connector hose) If possible get a 60" or 72" hose so you can hook up the dishwasher when it is out and then push it back in with the water supply already hooked up.

Kenmore Ultrawash Quiet Guard 5 making buzzing/grinding noise


I have a very similar dishwasher, with a very similar problem. I fixed it by removing debris from the water evacuator pump located towards the front of the bottom of the machine (the last motor before the drain hose. In my case, grape stems had clogged it up. Once emptied, it purrs once again. NOTE: don't disassemble the motor, just flush it out, there is an o-ring gasket that is a bear to re-install.

Ge dishwasher is 12 yrs old. water doesnt drain, checked trap, its clear..


check the pump and motor to see if it is working the motor might run but the pump could be to weak to move the water, and the opposite the motor could be to weak. if you hear the motor run then its a fairly simple test put a small rag in front of the intake to the pump and carefully move it close to see if the pump tries to pull it in dont let it suck it in that will cause lots of problems.
