Issue with Dishwasher --- Spray ARM does not move

I have a Kenmore Elite 665 Dishwasher. The water comes in and gets drained properly but the spray-arms don't seems to turn. I have cleaned the mesh but no change.

Some people with similar issues have suggested replacing the impeller --- How do I CONFIRM that it is the Impeller ???

Where do I get the detailed instructions to replace the Impeller ?

How do I get the exact model number for the Impeller and where do I order the replacement from ???

You can replace the impeller, it requires purchasing the part, removing the motor/ sump assy from the d/w( or uninstalling the d/w and flipping on its back) the motor does separate form housing with 1 3/8 screw and a twist. new part(s) are installed and reassemble. part number 8268398 impeller kit, and you can order it from sears.com.. you can remove the top filter plate(5 torx 15 screws, that will give you acess to lower unit 2 more torx screws will give you acesst othe chopper assy, you may be clogged with gunk there, that would prevent good cleaning results and noisy operation, bu tif that area is relatively clean,and your motor is running, just very little water pressure form lower arm assy. the impeller kit will do the trick.

Kenmore Elite 5t shows an F30 code, water fill solenoid is making a noise like its not opening


This is a dispenser motor issue. If you pull the unit out and remove the 3 screws coming into the back of the top panel, you can remove the top panel to access the top of the dispenser. There is a motor that turns a plastic lever on the dispenser. you might be able to manually help the arm move to get past the error code, but ultimately you will need to replace the dispenser motor. Here is the part to order.

Spots are left on the dishes after washing. Dishes don't look clean


Hi

If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound.

If it seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve. Now, check if dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after the cycle is complete. Try cleaning the spray arm with a soft brush. The water temperature plays a major role in cleaning of dishes. The temp should be between 125 and 150 F for dishwasher to clean the dishes. Hope this helps...

My maytag dishwasher does not have enough pressure to drive the water through the wands onto the dishes. I have cleaned the screen underneath the bottom wand but this has not increased the pressure enough....


I would check to see if you have enough water in the dishwasher. Let the dishwasher fill with water and set the spray arm in a positoin you will remember where it is.
Take a large pot of hot water and add it to the dishwasher and close the door. Start the dishwasher and observe to see if the spray arm moves.
If it moves you may have to change the water inlet valve. It may be restristing the water flow into the dishwasher.
The water inlet valve is located behind the lower kick panel.(4) screws, Remove the panel and see where the water pipe hooks into the water inlet valve. Remove two wires and two screws. Shut water off and remove the water line going into the valve and the small rubber hose coming out of the valve.
Replace valve and reinstall kick panel.
Hope this helps.

Not cleaning


If the water doesn't drain from your dishwasher, check these:
  1. Drain line/air gap A clog in this part is the usual reason that a dishwasher doesn't drain. Remove the drain line to clear any debris from the hose or hose connection at the household drain line connection. Reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.
  2. Pump You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher. Remove the lower rack, spray arm and support. Look for an impeller, a device that spins around and forces water through the spray arm. This is the wash impeller and beneath it is the drain impeller that pushes the water into the drain port. Replace it if found defective or worn out.
  3. Drain valve/solenoid The drain valve may have a solenoid with lever that sticks or frozen and prevents the dishwasher from draining. Free up the solenoid and lubricate the lever.
  4. Belt A certain brand of dishwasher uses a belt to drive the pump. Replace it if broken or worn out.
  5. Motor Check it if turning or working.Turn the rotor manually to see if stuck and free it up. Replace if defective, it is not serviceable.

Hello, Kenmore Elite washer, doesn't drain properly.Leaves clothes full of water. We use the spin cycle quite a few times to get out as much water as possible. Where is the drain filter please tell me....


Hello. The drain filter, or strainer, is usually located at the bottom front of the machine, behind the kick panel. This is the small panel below the main front panel. Remove it and you'll see a hose coming from the drum to a canister. This is the strainer, and has a screw lid. Caution when opening this....There will be water. Be prepared.... Unscrew the lid, and remove the strainer and clean. If it is difficult to remove, try gripping the tab in the middle of the lid with pliers or channel locks to get some leverage. I always put a little silicone spray on the "O" ring and threads when I reassemble the strainer. This should solve your problem.
Best regards --W/D-- please feel free to rate this solution! Thanx!

Draining water on kitchen floor


I am not familiar with your model dishwasher, but had a similar problem a few years back. I am assuming you have checked the obvious causes, such as a worn, or damaged gasket around the door. My problem was fixed by replacing the lower spray arm. The spray arm is a couple inches wide, about 18 inches long, has holes in it and rotates as it dispenses water - some lift up during the wsk and rinse cycles. In my case some of the holes got plugged up with gunk, which resulted in the water shooting out harder and further from the other holes. Those streams of water went places they were not designed to go and ended up on my kitchen floor. So check that part out and see if it is the cause of your problem. Good luck!

Water Softner Dispense wont empty - Kenmore Elite Quiet Pak 4 HE3t


I'm sure you heard a small motor running from time to time during a cycle. That moves an "arm" which sends water to the different chambers during a cycle. Fabric softener is dispensed when water goes to that chamber and dilutes the fabric softener. That chamber then empties by a siphoning action.
If you want to narrow down the problem a little to help trouble shoot -- put some wet rags in and run the Rinse and Spin cycle with some fabric softener. If the softener is not dispensed, then you know that the water isn't being sent to that chamber properly.
If you are intrepid enough to take the top off your washer, do that and see if the arm appears to be moving during a normal cycle. Maybe the arm got dislodged or broken during the move.
If water isn't being diverted properly, I think this calls for a real repair person.
