Kenmore 587 model dishwasher produces water but won't spray or move from bottom

We have a 2 year old 587.15142400 model dishwasher. Water is coming in at the bottom but no water is moving up through the sprayer. No dishes are getting wet and detergent is just laying on the bottom. Any suggestions of how to fix this? Thanks!

    Having the same problem. I noticed that the dishes are getting very hot, and the sprayer at the bottom has melted in places, but no idea why it isn't spraying.

    My sprayer just melted in place as well. After I replaced the sprayer, I noticed that the sprayer was not spraying water. I looked at other items, and tested the wires going to the motor and they were rating at 117 volts, however, the motor still wasn't working. The motor worked just fine prior to the meltdown, so my question arises, is there some type of solenoid or inline fuse that controls the voltage on the motor that can be replaced or reset?

I have a 587-15142400 Kenmore dishwasher that leaves soap on all the dishes. Is there anything we can flush out our dishwasher lines with?


First perform a vinegar cycle wash in the dishwasher. Pour a cup of vinegar into the bottom of the dishwasher. Keep the temperature at the highest setting possible and perform a wash cycle.Then start using a dishwasher most probably that would solve the problem. If this does not solve the problem then there must be some parts worn out or faulty creating the problem.

There are many probable causes of failure .

To clean the dishes the water temperature is essential.It the water is not hot then the dishes will not be cleaned properly.So check the water temperature.

Also check the filter in your dishwasher.Clean the filter if there is accumulation of debris in the filter

If you are in an hard water zone , then try reducing the amount of detergent used and then try cleaning the dishes.

Bottom Spray Arm Not Rotating


check to make sure you are getting enough water entering the dishwasher. If you add a liter of water, does the water arm turn then? If so, you may have a faulty water valve that is not allowing enough water to enter to turn the spray arm. Hope that solves it :)

Kenmore dishwasher 58715142400 fills but doesn't wash


Motor has gone out..just like mine...Make sure u have voltage going to the motor, (disconnect the plug from the motor) and use an electric meter to make sure you have voltage going to the motor. If so the motor has either gone out or has been blocked by something! If no noise except clicking then motor has gone out. Looking at about $150 for motor.

You may try the rubber gaskets and fasteners that attach your heat element through the bottom of the dishwasher body. This is the only full penetration of the shell involving metal that I see. You could see these fasteners if you remove the dishwasher from its current position, rotate it clockwise on its side and see the two cheapo pressed metal nuts on threaded studs that have wires attached. These keep that black metal loop on the bottom (inside the washer) in place. Remove wires, unthread pressed metal fasteners, check heater element for the rust issue (replace if needed) and reinstall new rubber gaskets and fasteners. Hope that helps!
