I have a 7 year old Kenmore dishwasher, stock # 16033. Tonight it suddenly began to overflow and it was discovered that the hot water kept running even when the cycle was cancelled. The only way to get...


Hi,
The solenoid valve underneath is an electrically controlled valve that opens the let water in and then is supposed to close again when the dishwasher is full enough with water. There are screens in the entrance of the valve that should catch any dirt that is large enough to keep the valve from closing, but sometimes dirt will get through that gets under the seat of the valve and prevents it from closing and shutting off the water. When this happens the water will keep right on running in...till you manually turn it off with the valve under the sink.

Find the part, it is usually under your dishwasher on the right hand front corner. You will see the water connection going to it.

The find your model number for your dishwasher and go online to find the part. It is fairly easy to install, but it is in a bad spot and you will find yourself lying on the floor busting your knuckles to get it replaced....if you are not up for that, then hire a pro to come and do it for you. For some reason getting paid to bust your knuckles makes it a bit more worth it...:-)

Probably just hard water causing the solenoid to stay slightly open. Shut off water Remove 1/4 hose Remove wire harness/plug Remove other side hose should be a clamp. Unscrew mounting bracket and replace in the same order.
Hope that helps

Light flashes 7 times then pauses and blinks 7 times again, and keeps repeating


Temperature problem with water. Incoming water when filled should be no less then 1/2 inch below heater. If not, possible water valve. Incoming water temp. min after fill. 120 degrees. Missaligned door. One of door switches not activating. Bad circulation motor. Not throwing water over heater. Tech.sheet behind bottom panel. Will tell you. Shorted heater. When bottom panel is removed. Look for signs of water leaks. Hard water deposits on floor.

Dishwasher tub leaks underneath


Hello. Anything is worth trying! But I would recommend epoxy. It works alot better with plastic and rubber items. Most of the leaks I have found in Kenmore machines are at the water pump. You may want to take a peek while it's running, just stay away from the wires!! Thanks!

My kenmore built in dishwasher is leaking out the front


change the door gasket. also check to see if the wall hasn't "sprung out" of position this will always cause leaks if the side walls aren't supported.
