Question about Kenmore 17252 Free-standing Dishwasher

Open Question

My Kenmore portable dishwasher is acting very odd. First problem is that water doesn't always seem to enter washwer when it should. Sometimes water enters, apparently sometimes not. Second problem is that the heating element is hot even though controls are set to no heat dry and no water heating (so I assume the element should not come on at all). I have Model #587.17252200. Any help is greatly appreciated!

SOURCE: 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.

I have the same problem. I have to go through the test mode at least three times just to wash one load of dishes. This dishwasher is a lemon. Sears she recall it. The techs say that they have at least 50 calls a week with the same problem. We need to hire a lemon law attorney and sue the pants off them. If you here anything email me please.

Beko dishwasher doesn always fill with water but makes sounds as if it does. Other times it works great any ideas?


depending on chosen wash cycle washers are not always supposed to 'fill' just use enough for that cycle .
If you mean sometimes no water at all and sometimes water with same settings check hoses and valves .
make sure valves are fully open hoses securely attached and hoses from valves to washer are not pinched twisted or damaged.
Hopefully the water not getting in the washer isn't leaking all over your floor below the washer.

My Kenmore Portable Dishwasher model number 665.17769K600 will not fill with water, I have to manually fill with water and it will then work. What could be causing this?


Hi



When the Dishwasher is not filling in, you'll need to check for the water inlet valve, the filter screen and the float switch/assembly. Also check for the float assembly inside the dishwasher. When water is filling your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages.
If these are fine then it's due to Water Inlet Valve. Use a multimeter and check for the continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly.

Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

No water entering dishwasher. seems to cycle but with now water.


open the dishwasher in the tub on your left bottom you will see a large plastic bubble lift the bubble (float) up and, down vertically, listen for a "click" the float sits above the water fill switch: the float's weight causes a pin on the float to press down on the switch to let water in the float sometimes can get stuck in the up position by debris and, prevent the fill switch from letting in water. When the float is lifted by the water in the tub to a predetermined height the pin comes off the fill switch lever and, turns off the water so that the dishwasher tub does not overflow. check this please.

My portable dishwasher runs a complete cycle seemingly fine but with no water


The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. First Check to see if the valve is getting water. Make sure it’s not clogged. There is a screen on the inside of the valve, this sometimes gets clogged up with debris. Check to see if you get power to valve when unit is put into operation may take a couple minutes to start a fill. If you have power and it’s not clogged up replace the valve .If you have no power to the water inlet valve check float switch. This can be done by checking the continuity. There is a video of this at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html this will walk you checking the water inlet valve and the float switch. It may be a different model but the testing procedure will be the same. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations for most

Water remains in bottom stains on


Your screens are clogged. Unscrew the cap holding on the lower washwer arm, and get in there with a toothbrush.

Kenmore portable dishwasher not performing.


There are likely more pieces of glass in the impeller of the motor keeping it from turning. It will have to be disassembled and cleared.

Kenmore portable dishwasher not working


if you can get underneath it try spinning the motor manually (after turning off the circuit breaker). sometimes the motors on dishwashers get jammed.
