Question about Kenmore 24 in. 16014 Built-in Dishwasher
A small piece of glass, 1/2 x 1/4 inch, cannot be found and is down in pump area. will this cause further damage? or can I ignore it?
Broken glass, chicken bones, toothpicks and other things that aren't supposed to end up in the main wash pump, are common causes of dishwasher failures. Ignoring it can eventually lead to a problems which could result in the replacement of the main wash pump. Depending on the model number you have, some replacement pumps are not cheap and can cost close to what you would pay for a new dishwasher once the labor charges are added. In addition, most manufacturer warranties WILL NOT cover the replacement as this falls under the category of "Customer Abuse". Even though, the potential poblem was accidental, and the result of something you generally would wash in the dishwasher, most manufacturers still will not honor the warranty if something you did caused the failure. You need to remove the lower spray arm, coarse strainer and fine strainer and locate the glass. If you do not know how to perform these procedures, post back with your MODEL NUMBER and I can give you step by step advice. I hope this helps you.
