Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. To start with check the water inlet valve which is located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side of the Dishwasher. If the water inlet valve is bad you have to replace it, also check the main water line for clogs/obstructions. If still the issue is not resolved then it’s a bad float switch and needs to be replaced. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

The dishwasher is working, but there is a soap like film left behind on the dishes, glasses and silverware. It's a Kenmore dishwasher.


Hi
White film deposits are observed if water is hard or when you are using more detergent than needed, try filling detergent cup half way. Try using white vinegar after the wash cycle is complete, run a complete cycle. Also turn down the heat on the hot water fed to the dishwasher. Try using water softener for better results.
You can also add vinegar in the final rinse cycle.
Hope this helps... Please post back if more information is required.

Dishwasher won't start until running until at


The 2 minutes is most likely the "Fill" time in the cycle therefore since the water supply is active the fill solenoid is spent or not getting a signal.

No water getting int the dishwasher


1. kink in supply hose.
2. fill solenoid has failed.
3. screen at water inlet has clogged with debris.

Check 1 and 3 first, easiest.

I have a washer that is not getting full of water


I don't believe the fill level is time dependent since we have very little or no variance in fill  and our well system can be anywhere between 30-60#.
By the way, I just noticed you posted under 'dishwasher.' I don't think you wanted that, I suggest you repost with the proper name and model number of your washer. I hope our dishwasher never gets 'filled!'

Water fill never stops - never! on Kenmore Model 665-16379301


I had this problem and the drain hose had become disconnected. I had a flooded basement.

Kenmore 665.1736 fills with water but does not spray


Take thre drain hose off from disposal. Pour hot water down the hose until full. Cover end with hand. Press cancel/drain while holding hand over hose - over bucket. That may unstick checkvalve balls and or fix air lock. I have to do that every 6 months or so. Started happening 1 month out of warranty. Go figure. Not a fix - just a work-around...

Make sure you run water in your sink until it is hot before you start the dishwasher. On the newer dishwashers they will fill and drain until the water is hot enough so it takes longer if it starts with cold water. Normal time for a basic wash could take about 45 min.

Kenmore Dishwasher #587.... doing nothing but heat dry


The problem appears to stem from the float and float switch. The float is a mushroom shaped plastic part that resides on the bottom left, just inside the door. It appears that the float does not release the float switch, causing the dishwasher to think it is full of water, and won't allow the dishwasher to fill. It's a relatively straight forward repair, but even with a new part, the same scenario is likely to repeat itself until the float or float switch is modified by Kenmore.
