Question about Kenmore 24 in. 16352 / 16354 / 16359 Built-in Dishwasher
After completing an entire cycle my dishwasher has a lot of water in the bottom. Model number 16765690....how can I correct the problem?
I have the same model -- and USED to have the same problem!
We tried lots of things (bleach in the water, etc.). . . . and finally discovered it was a simple, standard concern. The drain tube from the dishwasher to the sink pipe was clogged with grease (looked like lard).
The way i knew it was clogged is that I disconnected the tube from the sink pipe, and tried to blow through the tube. It wouldn't let any air get through.
So once the dishwasher was empty of water (i removed the tube, drained into a big pan, and bailed a lot), we disconnected both ends of the tube.
With the tube in a trash bucket, I blew from one end (cleaned it off a bit first), and the "lard" came out. Drains beautifully now -- and did not require a plumber.
If you do this, be SURE you place the tube back ON the fittings EXACTLY in the same position and shape as before. This makes there are no new kinks or bends introduced into your drain tube.
Hope this helps.
