Question about Kenmore Dishwashers
This is a sign of food particulate that is blocking the impeller inlet under the lower wash arm. Remove the lower wash arm noting EXACTLY how it comes off as you remove it. Then clean out the particulate. You may have to unscrew the lower wash arm tower also to get to the particulate.
Once yopu get it cleaned out it should work just fine. This does not happen often but..it does happen. It should not repeat anytime soon.
If you need exact instructions with part details I will need your full model number.
I think this is your dishwasher:
You may have to remove Item 14 (ONLY) to clean off the screen Item 1
