One thing you can check before calling the repair service. Open the door and remove the lower rack. On the bottom front right hand corner is a 'float' it looks like a hat. Make sure a spoon or something has not fallen under that float keeping it up. The hat should move up and down freely about 1/2".

If the float is okay you most likely have a bad inlet valve on the machine, that part runs about $40.00 a reputable company will charge about $150.00 to come out and make the repairs so the total will be around $200.00.

Just wanted to say "thank you" this solved my problem simply by re-seating the "hat looking" float. That's after I unplugged and checked every hose, sensor etc on the unit. I was 10 minutes away from calling the repairman when I found this solution - Thanks you!

Kenmore elite oasis washer will fill with water and skip the wash cycle. It will spin and empty then turn off. we have seen the code UL what can be done to fix this?


UL=Ultra Level of water?
usually its just foam in sensor tube,as prior using too much or wrong type of detergent(for hand wash,or else). Do few cycles with just and only water,or open machine and blow tubes to level "sensor".

Why will a Kenmore model 23812 not fill or wash in the "ultra clean" cycle?


The unit is designed to be energy efficient, so it does not have a water level switch. The control board sends a signal via the harness to fill the unit with water but only minimally. The manufacturer has recently redesigned the control board due to a number of problems, including the water level. Please have a qualified professional replace the control board?

Brand new ultra wash HE stuck in one cycle


Does it fill with HOT water (check after fill stops)? Did Sears install the washer? If so, have them troubleshoot the problem. It's obviously bringing water in. Are there any error lights or codes? May need to replace the control unit.

Kenmore washing machine will not fill with water.


The drain hose might be too low. Make sure the drain hose is at least three feet above the floor.

Smelly dishes from Kenmore Ultra Wash


If you post the model number of your dishwasher plus its approximate age (in years) I can help more.

But the most common cause is a weakening pump motor. On many dishwashers, the wash pump motor is also the drain motor. Replacing that motor / pump assembly will solve the problem. While you are replacing the pump, check the heating element to confirm that it is not shorted out or broken.

For now, add a cap full of bleach to the water _after_ the initial dishwasher fill cycle ends and the wash cycle begins. White vinegar would also work, but this will not fix your problem.

Good Luck!

Lg dishwasher never heats water


The LG 7811 dishwasher is supposed to even support a cold water (vs. hot water) connection. Then it will heat the water up to 120 degrees upon each fill cycle. This is not optimal and it adds much time to the already long full cycle. When you run the hot water at the kitchen sink until it is hot and then kick off the cycle, is the water hot at the beginning? It should be 120 degrees minimum and well under 140 degrees maximum.
Do you get any error codes on the display? Troubleshooting is possible, but recommend you contact LG service at the number in the user guide asap. Press for fast, free resolution to this problem. Please reply when you have gotten this fixed, explaining what fixed this nice, quiet dishwasher. Good Luck!
PS: When you get it running, do not use ultra-cheap dishwasher soap. Recommend Electrosol powder or cascade. Never use gel or tablets on this water conserving dishwasher.
