Kenmore 5871733590 18'' portable not running

Kenmore 5871733590 18'' portable dishwasher

When I try to start a cycle, all I get is an extremely loud buzzing noise. I also cannot get the machine to advance in the cycle by turning the knob. Though I have not tried adding water to trick it into being full.

I took apart the sprayer arm (which is clean) and found the impeller smells of burnt plastic and has one blade broken, but would this really be the source if the issue?

This has happened a few times to me as well.(VERY VERY LOUD NOISE AT THE BOTTOM)I have the same model It did stop.I did a little reading and came to the conclusion that it was the built in food disposer chopping blades were chopping up something like a cherry pit or peach pit and once an end of a wooden spoon that dropped down.If you look at your USE and care Guide on page 12 under trouble shooting "Dishwasher seems noisy"..I went through the same thing taking things apart.Its got to be it. Mine is 2 1/2 years as well. Hope this helps. ronkeachie@rogers.com

How deep do you want to get into this?It sounds like the wash pump motor bearings that are worn.You can pull the unit out flip it over and wd40 the bearings in the motor or you can replace the bearings.Try to lube them first.

SOURCE: kenmore elite dishwasher making loud buzzing sound when washing

I had the same problem with by Kemore Ultrawash after two years. The motor bearing went bad because the seal went out and dish water got to the bearing. If you are handy, this motor comes out after taking the dishwasher out. I was surprised how easily the motor came apart from the dishwasher, a good design. The motor has three screws that holds it together, I took them out and took the motor apart.
I took the old beaing off the shaft with a grinder, careful not to groove the motor shaft. I did, but just put some high temp silicone caulk in the groove before I put the new bearing on the shaft. I bought a new bearing on the internet, it is a 22mm x 8mm x 7mm. I bought one that went in a small engine, a quality one. I placed it on the shaft, put the motor back together and put the dishwasher back together. It has run quiet and great for many weeks now. I expect the dishwasher may last many years now, because the bearing I took out was a cheap aftermarket one, and the new one is vastly superior in quality.

Good luck and fire away with any questions. I love this dishwasher and am glad I could fix it for 19$ and some of my time.

Hi you probably have something in the sump drain assembly (this is a common problem with Nautilus DW's) there's a screen on the right side of the spray arm with 2 screws remove them and take screen off use your fingers to probe the cavity be careful it could be glass.

If it does not correct the problem

!.You may have an electric pump . and it could be pump without water . so i would say a bad pump....but since you say everything is draining well...then I doubt the later...HOWEVER...you did say it ran forever...which is absolutely typical of something in the sump...drain area...which will make the drain cycle run because it believes something to be in the drain.....there is also a check valve...that the drain hose attaches to...(it comes right off of the motor assembly) when you take the hose off there is a check valve that screws into the hose or the motor assembly...(it could have debris in the hose that is not being drained all the way out and it is finding it's way back to the check valve) ...shop-vac the drain line...or the valve is screwed into the motor assembly where the hose disconnects...and there may be something stuck in the valve...unscrew it and check that the valve is in good shape...and free of debris......reassemble...and run through cycle....if you need any of these parts...or any specific instructions on replacement of these parts...here is a great site...Quality for less and quick delivery.

I hope this helps...I believe it will....Good luck and good day....thank you for your rating my effort....The Fang.

SOURCE: Kenmore Dishwasher 17369 not thoroughly cleaning

The first is to look for filters and drains to clean. Also check out the jets, as sometimes these can be clogged farther back than you can see with a quick inspections. You can likely remove them and take a good look. Secondly, you may want to switch detergents. Perhaps the quality of the water you are using has changed, hard water build up or you have changed detergents. You have to find the right detergent for the kind of water you are using, especially if you don't have a water softener. where the filter in the bottom of the dishwasher needed cleaning out. Just take the screws out, pull the plastic filter out and clean. Hope this helps. Report

Kenmore dishwasher model 665 has gotten extremely loud. Functions fine. Never loud like this before. What could be wrong?


It could be that something (some foreign object like a piece of glass or a seed or something) has gotten into the main pump or the drain pump; or else your main pump bearings have gone bad from age and use.

Starting the dishwashing cycle, extreme loud noise when dishwasher starts pumping water. Loud noise stays during pumping cycle. Dishes are clean and dry and no water in tub when cycle finishes.


If your unit is a Kenmore or Whirlpool (there are several other brands that use many of the same parts) and is less than 6 years old then it may pay to first check and clean out the chopper assembly for hard debris. If that doesn't do it then you may want to consider replacing the motor and circulation pump as a complete unit for between $160 and $200. Not too difficult a task for a moderately handy guy with some tools. Maybe 2 hrs. The bearing itself is not serviceable I understand, and would be considerably more difficult. Over six years old then you can buy a great quality machine for about $500.

Dishwasher pump starts washing cycle then stops and just hums loudly.


It's humming loudly because something is caught inside it. You can take the kick plate off and start to turn it with a screwdriver to try to get it jump started. Sometimes this will fix the problem because it can cause the blockage to be moved through the system. If this doesn't work, you'll have to change the motor (and this is a pain) or buy a new dishwasher.

Kenmore dishwasher 15762


On the inside of the dishwasher (on the bottom), there should be a little "float" device, which tells the dishwasher when it has put enough water into the tub. Sometimes, this float gets stuck in the "up" position, so the dishwasher never puts any water in, but continues to run anyway as if it did. Try pushing down on the float to unstick it, then start the cycle over and see if it puts any water in.
