Question about Kenmore Dishwashers
I have a kenmore dishwasher 665.15898791 that is about 13 years old. I recently replaced the pump filter and gaskets and upper spray arm. Originally used Quick Wash cycle and it started to not clean well, then changed parts and it worked. Within 6 months it started not cleaning again. I switched to Normal Wash cycle and it worked well for about 2 months. Now it is not cleaning well. Soap door is opening. I've run diagnostic program with no faults. Admittedly, not sure what I was looking at. Everytime I open the door when its running everything seems to be working (pump, motor, soap, spray arms, dry cycle). Can you shed some light on where to start trouble shooting this? At 13 years of service will this become a money pit? Is it better to buy new at this point? Thank-you David M.
Check the sump area below the pump and clean out any waste food debris,etc. and also the drain check valve,it may be plugged and not draining waste water completely or not closing completely and letting waste water back into the sump and this could be getting back through the pump and sprayed back onto your dishes
