Question about Kenmore 24 in. 15164 Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

I have a Kenmore model 15165 dishwasher. It suddenly stopped filling with water--no water comes into the machine at all. No exterior valves that could have gotten turned off. Is the problem with the float assembly?

Your inlet hose probably came loose on the left side of the dishwasher. If you pull the d/w out 6 inch. or so you will see the s-shaped hose going to the inlet port on the tub. Make sure it's not pinched or leaking..Catriver

SOURCE: Kenmore 665.1736 fills with water but does not spray

Take thre drain hose off from disposal. Pour hot water down the hose until full. Cover end with hand. Press cancel/drain while holding hand over hose - over bucket. That may unstick checkvalve balls and or fix air lock. I have to do that every 6 months or so. Started happening 1 month out of warranty. Go figure. Not a fix - just a work-around...

SOURCE: electrolux Dishwasher 24 " not

if i was at your home as a repairman this is what i would do.if your water pressure was good at the kitchen sink,i would turn water off to dishwasher undo water connection at the fill valve,and place water line in a bucket and turn on water.if ok and still not getting water then prob with fill valve.soooo you have a new valve,did you check the water pressure to the valve? if yes good because then you also flushed out that in coming water line.because[and i have done this a few times]if not flushed their could have been minerals setting in that supply line so when you turn the water back on it pushes that stuff into the new water valve screen and blocks it up also.if your getting water then its trying to do its job,it just cant get enough water and the timer times out so no more voltage to the water valve.thats a lot said but there no mystery to it.the timer allows for lets say a 70 sec fill at 40 lbs water presure ,seventy seconds up that's it .the float only stops it from flooding,too much water.it dose not tell the machine that there is not enough! so because its letting in some water that tells me the float switch is closed[and it should be]leting the voltage to the water valve.the water valve has to let in enough water then.i know i mixed up words a bit but i hope this helps you understand whats happening.God bless ,if you need more advice you can email thru FixYa tom

SOURCE: Dishwasher will not fill

EE,
The most likely culprit in a "no fill" scenario (especially after you've replaced the valve) is the Overflow preventer. It's designed to kill power to the valve if the water level gets too high. It does this by floating up as the water level rises.
Open the dishwasher door and remove the lower rack. You'll see it in the tub on the left side (the round thing that looks like a little hat). If it's stuck in the up (overflow) position, you won't get water. Raise and lower this device a few times... you should hear the "click click click" of the kill switch. Now just make sure it's in full down (ready for water) position and fire up the dishwasher. You should get water now.

If this helped, please rate this solution as "FixYa". BUT if this didn't fix the problem, don't rate it just yet. Write back and we'll go a little deeper into a diagnosis, OK?

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.

Hi I have a problem with my Kenmore washing machine,in particular I can not use hot water anymore. When I use my washing machine hot water does not stop at set water filling level (law, medium,high)...


Please post the model number for your washer. It sounds like your hot water valve has failed and is not closing. Unplug your washer's power cord and turn the hot water spigot that comes out of the wall on. If you still get water filling your washing machine, it's definitely the washer's valve and you will need to install a new set (hot and cold valves are both part of the same assembly).

Recently ran well low - no dishwasher not filling


Yes there is a screen in the water valve of the dishwasher. you'll have to shut off to the water line coming in to the dishwasher and disconnect the water line. then take off the water valve to get to the screen. you could have a stopped up screen or a bad solenoid switch on the valve.if you know how to use an ohm meter you can check the solenoid for continuity.

it is better to just replace the valve than to try to take the water valve apart and clean it.

you will want to check the float switch first before you do any of the above.

if you take the bottom panel off and look to where the inlet hose is attaching to in back of the brass coupling there is a water valve there make sure you are getting power to the valve disconnect the line after the valve and turn the machine on having the valve fill into a bucket if the water doesnt come out of the valve then replace the valve

My Kenmore washer will not shut off the hot water at the end of the fill cycle


Water valves work on a hydraulic principle, the surface area of the valve where the water comes to the valve is more than the opening that it passes into the machine.. The pressure of the water shuts off the valve. The electric solenoid opens the valve when power is applied to fill the machine.
'
If you unplug the washing machine while it is filling and it keeps filling you have a bad water valve.

If you unplug the machine while filling and it stops filling you have a electrical problem or a bad pressure switch.

No water coming into dishwasher


dishwasher will not fill with water: This is often the fill valve. You can test the fill valve coil for continuity with a ohm meter, no needle movement = bad fill valve. You can also test the fill valve for 120 volts at the fill valve with a volt meter, power there and no fill = bad fill valve. No 120 volts there, you will have to trace power back to find the trouble maker. Test things like the float and float switch, wires and timer. Fill valves are very bad for working once or twice and then quitting, if your dishwasher fills the first and second fill cycles and then no more water through the rest of the cycle, replace the fill valve. You will need to remove the access panels to get at the fill valve. Dishwasher fill valves also have a screen built into the valve entrance, this can also get all clogged up and need to be cleaned. ----- There's no water entering the machine If there's no water entering your dishwasher, check these: Water-inlet valve Float switch Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it. Float switch The float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below the dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of the dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills the dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets caught or trapped in the raised position, the water can't enter the dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it.

Kenmore dishwasher has loud noise during fill. If you let it go, the washer fills. Once filled, noise stops and wash cycle continues. Sounds like plumbing does when there is air in the pipes. Not a...


This isn't a solution but rather a comment, if the problem is happening only during the fill, then it could be the water inlet valve. Perhaps there is a soliniod going in the valve, watch to see if the fill cycle starts to dimminish over time. Does the sound come anytime the washer fills, ie: rinse cycle? if so I would replace the valve, probably 50 dollars would get you a new one and you can do it yourself to save a little more cash. good luck.
