Won't run...... Dishwasher fills.... and will empty okay but it doesnt wash. There is no cycling of the washer blades. Is this a motor problem? Any ideas? I hate Sears. Contacted them and all they wanted to do was sell me a service contract. Thanks Drew

    Same here. Kenmore Elite 2007 model dishwasher fills with water, heats, and will drain, but no washing is happening. The washer blades are not spinning. Then it developed the blinking light problem, which I fixed with Fixya's assistance...

    Any other fixes? Sears can't be here for five days...

Hi,
It sounds like the main pump isn't running - either it is jammed with something, burned out or has a power supply problem. If you can disconnect the machine from everything and turn it onto its side and look at the base you may be able to see the main pump and check if it is free to turn, and also look for corroded contacts / broken wires.

If you are not up to doing that yourself then I guess you'll need an engineer.

Hope this helps you a bit.D

Washer fills but won't go through wash cycle and


Check the lid switch, assuming top loader. Most machines will fill no problem but for 'safety' the motor(and timer) won't run if the lid is open. Of course it could be the timer itself but usually other cycles will work fine.

SMELLY FRONT LOAD WASHER


MAKE SURE YOUR WATER IS HOT WHEN STARTING THE FILL CYCLE YOU MAY HAVE TO FILL IT UP ONCE THEN DRAIN IT THEN FILL IT UP AGAIN TO MAKE SURE ITS HOT THEN ADD 1 CUP OF AUTOMATIC DISHWASHER SOAP AND RUN AN EMPTY CYCLE. THIS WILL REMOVE ALL ENZIMES AND SMELLS FROM WASHER

Cycle starts, but does not fill with water


When I start a new cycle, I first hear the pump run to empty out all remaining water, and after that I hear the motor run for the regular washing cycle, but there is no water in the dishwasher. After a few minutes, the cycle stops, and the washer claims the dishes are 'clean'. When I try starting a new cycle over and over again, about one in 20 times, the cycle will run normally with water. But then the next time, the problem starts all over again. Once a cycle starts correctly, everything works fine, including the rinsing.

I turn the dishwasher on normal wash and never stop washing i let it run for 2 hours and stiil running


Your dish washer probably has a "turbidity sensor". This is an infrared sensor that checks the condition of the water and adjusts your wash cycle accordingly. There is probably build up on the sensor (especially if you have hard water) and this is causing it to run so long. The easiest fix for this is to run a cleaning cycle on the dishwasher. Start your empty dish washer on a heavy wash cycle and wait for it to start filling with water. As soon as it starts to fill, open the door and pour 1/2 gallon of white vinegar into the bottom of the unit. Close the door and let it run its cycle. At the end of the cycle, run a second cycle and see if things improved. If things still are not better, you may have a bad sensor. If you have more questions, write me back. Hope this helps!

Ebers, you have a seperate wash and drain motor on this model. When you remove the bottom panel the drain pump will be on the right and the circulation (wash) pump will be in the rear. You are going to have to verify that you have power getting to the wash motor. Sometimes this is difficult without removing the dishwasher. The motor may have a quick connect harness going to it that you can check voltage there. If you have voltage to the motor during the wash cycle and it's not running, well, there's the problem. If no voltage, then it's probably a timer issue. Catriver..post back
