Hi,


If your dishwasher isn't draining then you will have to take off all of the shields on the bottom of the unit (on the outside) then you will see the motor. Unplug the dishwasher then put your fingers in the motor and start to turn it to free up the motor, the motor is kind of like a vacuum cleaner belt, so when you hand turn the motor you're allowing the belt to slip back into its grove. then when you're done plug it back in then turn the dishwasher on and it should drain.


Or if your dishwasher fails to complete its cycle, there could be a problem with the timer switch. The timer is what guides the dishwasher thru its various stages. If the dishwasher stays stuck in one cycle- doing one job continuously- or advances thru a few cycles and then stops, suspect a malfunctioning timer. Purchase a replacement timer. Remove the front panel of the washer and find the switch. It is usually right behind the control knob. Snap a few digital photos of the wire assembly to simplify installation of the new switch. Simply remove the old switch and replace it with the new one. Sometimes, a bad heating assembly can cause the washer to not advance past it initial starting point. On dishwashers that preheat the water, there are 2 methods to this. Some use a timer when heating the water, others use a temperature sensor. The ones with with a timer will advance the cycle regardless of water temperature. If there is a problem with the heating element, then the water won't heat up and the washers with temperature sensors won't advance the cycle.

There also could be a problem with the cycle extender or selector switch. Call in a repair person to diagnose the issue thoroughly.

Please accept the solution if it's helpful. Do get back to us for any further query.

GE Washer stuck in wash cycle and not draining.


humming is usually the result of bad motor windings , are u saying it washes for 20 minutes or just stays on that cycle without doing any washing? a non moving drum can be a bad motor coupler or belt if belt driven.

Your motor is getting overheated in wash cycle. if you turn it off for about 15 minutes and start it back up in rinse cycle will it work ? If yes, then motor is overheated. A sign that the motor is over working its self and time for a new motor.

Kenmore Elite model 42934. Problem washer only


F35 is a water level error.
The water level switch (pressure switch) has malfunctioned.

If you remove the top panel, three screws in the back, you will have access to the pressure switch.

With the tub empty, remove the vinyl hose from the switch and blow backwards through the hose to clear any restrictions.

If the fault codes return after doing this, you will likely need to replace the pressure switch.


Also - please be sure to use He soap.

Kenmore model 110.24642300 will not cycle through wash cycles...will stay stuck in wash cycle until the knob is manually turned to rinse/spint/etc. Would this be a bad knob or timer or both? Thanks!


Start a cycle and remove the knob. If it still stays in agitation mode and won't advance to the spin, then you have a bad timer, or no power to the timer motor(very unlikely). If your washer goes through the cycles with the knob off then you have a bad timer knob. I have seen stripped knobs causing the timer to bind up and not advance. Good Luck Appliance Specialists

Kenmore washing machine model 110 wash cycle stops


DOES IT DO THIS ON EVERY WASH OR SOMETIMES? IF SOMETIMES, CHECK LID SWITCH( THERE'S A LITTLE HOLE WHEN YOU OPEN THE LID, ON THE LID SHOULD HAVE A LITTLE PLASTIC PIECE THAT GOES IN THAT HOLE. THE SWITCH IS UNDER, INSIDE THAT HOLE. YOU CAN GET A PEN OR KEY TO SEE IF IT'S BROKEN.)

Dishwasher won't start


Drhook65,
Welcome,
I'm Huuum

How old is this dishwasher and the complete model number is?
You said, you have a Kenmore Ultra Wash dishwasher, and you have power running to it, but when you shut the door on it...it still won't start a cycle. Does it have a reset button on it? Any ideas on a solution?

Yes, you may try this to reset the system.
Go to the breaker and switch it off for 5 minutes and the on and try it. It usually resets the systems.
Let me know ho it goes. Huuum
