Question about Kenmore 24 in. 16482 / 16484 / 16489 Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

My kenmore 16482 dishwasher was noisy and not cleaning very well. I removed the large motor underneath and found what looks like the plastic pieces that are on the electric motor shredded and worn and possibly some worn plastic in what im guessing is the pump housing. can these parts be serviced separate from the motor and where can i get them? thanks in advance

SOURCE: The "spinner, 3rd level wash" kept falling off. Ordered new part, no instructions with it.

I came here today looking for the solution to this same problem! However, I might be able to help a little...in searching the bottom of the dishwasher, I found the pointed plastic piece for mine. To put it back in, here's what I did -- the 'vanes' of the spinner face the top of the dishwasher, align the center hole of the spinner with the hole in the 'ceiling' of the dishwasher. Push the small plastic piece (pointed end up) up through the center of the spinner and snap it into place, attaching it to the dishwasher. However, whenever I put mine back in, it comes out in the next wash. I'm assuming that my spinner keeps coming out because my plastic piece is worn(?) I was wondering if there was a screw involved to hold it into place, but from your description of the parts bag (spinner and plastic snap) perhaps there is not. I'll order my replacement part and see if that fixes it. Anyone who knows about this for sure -- please post for us! Thanks!

Generally, the filters are removable.  You'll need your manual.  Nothing can get into the motor...but they can get into the pump.  Remove all the racks, get in there and find the item...likely a small bone or toothpick or that plastic bread closer.

Look at your manual, usually available on net for reading or downloading. Blink lights are often used to code out a problem with various combinations and repetition rates to indicate trouble code number for look-up in manual.

Leaking dishwasher


1-if it is brand new it should be under warranty 2-try changing soap brand, some suds up more than others and sneak past the seals 3- where is it leaking? (around the door, or underneath ie likely motor seal or plumbing) 4- check Plumbing connections 5-most "tubs" nowadays are one piece plastic, look it over carefully with a good flashlight. if you think you have found a crack remember where it is start the dishwasher and run it till it starts leaking and then open it and examine that spot-with the heat it may open up more or otherwise change

Kenmore washer will not spin moved out and underneath found a wagon wheel shaped black thing with four small plastic white parts?


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Look in the section for the motor, pump gearcase and you'll see the Motor Coupler.

Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive washers use a "Motor Coupler" between the motor and transmission.

It's used as a fail safe device and consists of three parts.

Two of the parts are the same, plastic units with three prongs that fit on one of the motor output shafts and the other on the transmission input shaft. Between them is a rubber piece with six holes.

The power from the motor is transmitted through the rubber piece to the transmission.

The other shaft on the motor directly drives the pump. This is likely why the machine drains.

If the motor coupler is broken, or worn, the motor may not be able to send full power to the transmission for agitating or spinning.

See the following for how to remove the cabinet, pump, motor and motor mounting plate to inspect and replace the motor coupler.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137

If the coupler looks damaged, it's a relatively easy fix.

Pry the plastic pieces from the motor and transmission. Some people use a claw hammer but I've found that using a small (6 inch) pry bar works well.

Carefully fit the plastic pieces over the motor and transmission shafts and press them in place (Use a 1/2" of larger socket to put pressure equally around the pieces.

Put the rubber piece on the transmission plastic piece.

Replace the motor mounting plate.

Carefully line up the plastic prongs on the motor based plastic piece to the three un-used holes in the rubber piece. If they don't line up right, the coupler could be damaged.

Mount the motor, don't forget the two screws, put the pump back on the motor and use its' clips.

Put the cabinet back on, don't forget to plug the lid switch back in and re-mount the console.

Dishwasher appears to be having problems draining - loud screatching noise and sound like metal clanking


Either a piece of tableware has penetrated the intake screen at the bottom under the lower spray arm, and the pump impeller is damaged, or the pump motor underneath the deck has a bad bearing and must be replaced. Remove all components including the lower spray arm down to the bottom deck. Note the position and orientation of each piece as it is removed. When you get to the bottom, there should be a pump impeller that is connected to the motor underneath the deck. Turn the impeller by hand and see if it is noisy, or moves side to side indicating a bad motor bearing.

I sucked up a piece of plastic. Removed plastic.


This style machine picks up the dirt/debris with the roller, sends it through a fan and into the bag/cup. This is a very common problem since a plastic fan turning at 2000 rpm meeting anything hard is going to cause damage. (Loose Change, toys, anything small) This fan creates your suction and when it is damaged it creates none, it also is the "noisy" part of any vacuum and becomes extremely noisy when damaged.

To Replace this part:
  1. Remove hood (4 screws underneath)
  2. Remove handle assembly ( one bolt through handle and slide off)
  3. remove the belt
  4. Remove the 2 brackets on each side of the motor that hold it in place. (4 screws)
  5. Lift motor off base assy.
  6. Remove rubber cuff around top of motor assy.
  7. Remove the 6 screws on large size of motor assy. and remove cap.
  8. Turn fan (or whats left of it) off of spindle by holding belt drive spindle on oppisite side of the motor.
  9. Replace fan and reassemble.
You can also take this to most any Hoover authorized service center, they would have the parts in stock and could probably do it for less than 50 dollars. Check their dealer locator for a local center.

Best of Luck!

Noisy cycle and dirty dishes


Hi

If your dishwasher seems noisy, check these:
Water-inlet valve An aging water-inlet valve can sometimes fail slowly, rather than all at once. It can shudder on and off rapidly, causing the incoming water lines to shake, rumble, and rattle--sometimes violently. If yours is doing this, replace the inlet valve.

Motor If it's the motor that's noisy, either of these may be the "culprit:"

  • As motor bearings wear out, they can become quite loud when the motor runs. They wear out quickly if they frequently get wet, because the water washes away the motor bearing grease. Bearings can get wet if the spin seal is defective. Then there will also be water leaking onto the floor beneath the dishwasher. Replace the seal if it leaks (read about the main tub seal in the "It leaks" section, later).

  • If, from beneath the dishwasher, you can see a round, plastic disc that's mounted to the top of the motor (a "slinger"), it may have broken free of the motor shaft. If so, it could be rattling around the shaft while the motor is running. If that's the problem, you need to replace the motor.

Heater fan If the heater fan bearings are rusted or worn, they may squeal, or scrape loudly during the drying cycle. If this is the problem, replace the fan motor. Alternatively, the fan blade may be loose. If so, you need to replace it.

Pump Small fruit pits, toothpicks, and fragments of glass sometimes get stuck in the pump. When this happens, open the pump and remove the debris. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher.

To get to the pump, you usually need to remove the lower rack, the spray arms, and the spray arm support from the inside of your dishwasher. A dishwasher pump isn't obvious. Look for an impeller--a round, plastic fan blade-type device that spins around and pushes the water toward the drain. When you can see the drain impeller, you should be able to see the clogging debris.


Please accept the solution and revert for any further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

Kenmore Elite Dishwasher - leaks from Overfill Protection Float


I had the same problem, but mine leaked every time. I have a kenmore ultra wash dishwasher no. 665.15762. I took the bottom rotating sprayer off and found that the plastic piece under the sprayer had a few loose screws and the rubber gasket, under that piece, had blown out at the corner facing the overfill protection float. I took out all the screws and re-mounted the gasket in place and put all the screws back and tightened them. It solved the problem. I hope that this helps others.

Permanent (?) stains on inside of door


Have you tried a treatment (not sure of the name) that you wash plastic dishes with that takes the orange stains out? It can be found at Walmart for under $10. I don't know of anything that can prevent this problem but I don't see why a product that takes it out of plastic dishes can't take it off the plastic of the dishwasher. Hope it helps!
