Question about Kenmore 24 in. 17032 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Intalling the 665 17032

We've had this nice dishwasher in our kitchen for a year and half, however my 'handyman' husband has not installed it(yep, its sitting there). Now, he's lost the installation guide. Does anyone know how to get the guide on the internet. I've called Sears, and they cannot help me(they don't have one-they've suggested going into a sears store and getting a copy there).
(just as embarrassing is, I work for an extended warranty company who does appliances((not sears tho..))..and i cant find one.
thank you!!!

I have no current account, but I sent in a form for a Handyman subscription for my husband several months ago, and we've heard nothing yet. Can you help with this?

If this was for Handyman Club of America (and their magazine "Handy"), they have gone away. If this is for "Family Handyman", check to see if you subscribed to the Digital Edition, which is only online and you won't receive anything printed. Family Handyman subscription contact info is on this web page:

If you are referring to any other "Handyman" magazine, you might have to find their subscription contact info online.

Does anyone have installation instructions fo a Bosch free standing dishwasher smu50E65au? Thanks. Julie

Hi Julie.
A dishwasher needs access to water numerous times during it's cycle. You'll have to have the hose on the tap with water pressure on while the machine is in operation. You could exchange your tap for one with thread or install a second one behind the current one.
(Slightly agricultural repair)
When installing a dishwasher the drain hose outlet MUST be above the water level in the machine or the water will run out as soon as it is put in...They usually connect to the S bend under the sink.
It would probably be best to have a handyman/plumber attend to the job.
Good luck

Water damage to kitchen cabinets

This sounds more like a job for a carpenter or handyman than a dishwasher repairman - that is unless the dishasher is still leaking, and you are asking how to fix the leaking problem.

Error code PE on Samsung dishwasher DMR78AHS

I too have the same problem with my dishwasher. Didn't know about the circuit breaker trick. Will give a try. My husband is ready to throw all our Samsung appliances in the trash. We don't recommend them at all. Re-modeled our kitchen 4 years ago and had all new Samsung appliances installed. What a mistake. In the 1st year we had 2 service calls on the dishwasher, 2 on the stove and 1 on the refrigerator. Have had many problems with the dishwasher. Have been in touch with the company but their approach is you bought it your stuck with it. Thanks for the trick to fix PE error code. I'm NOT getting it fixed. I'll use it till I can't use it anymore then go buy something else.

My viking dishwasher won't complete it's cycle. The error code that flashes is the heavy pots and pans. We've checked the filter and drains and nothing is clogged. What else could it be?

Have you checked the kitchen sink drain and air gap if one is installed in your kitchen. If using the garbage disposal unit in kitchen then make sure it is clear.

provide model number of dishwasher for further diagnosis.

Whirlpool GU1500X dishwasher motor noise got loud

Hello- Yep- it's toast. A small seal on motor shaft failed, causing water to destroy bearings. Motor is about 100$. Installation instructions available if you choose that route. Let me know if this info helps- have more if needed.- Thanks - Ed

Dishwasher won't drain, filled with dirty water

My husband and son actually fixed it and proceeded to do the Happy Handyman dance all over the kitchen. They took off the kickplate on the front, and cleaned out the hose, then took off the sprayer in the center of the unit and cleaned it out too.....lettuce, a plastic spoon, dog hair and a set of vampire teeth later, and my dishwasher is working like new. Also, I ran a cup of white vinegar through just to get rid of the stink and it worked great!

Heavy dishwasher door that falls open

I think any parts person would recognize it by that name.

It's a fairly simple fix.

The one you have may just be loose on one end and not broken -- check that before you buy one.

Broiler won't ignight - 48" gas range

I had the same problem. I'm not a handyman. A repairman came out and had to replace the igniter. Had to order it from Europe, which took about 2 weeks. They get old and crack and don't work after a while, he said.
