Question about Kenmore 24 in. 17052 / 17054 / 17059 Built-in Dishwasher
Our Kenmore Elite 17052 dishwasher no longer drains properly.
We checked the hose area at the disposal and disassembled the drain area in the washed and cleaned out the area - the drainage worked ok for a couple of washes then stopped again.
When I turn on Drain only I can hear the light buzzing of the motor but no drainage is happening.
What is this likely to indicate, please?
Thanks! David in Florida
The light buzzing of the motor doesn't mean the pump is in good condition and actually is being driven by the motor, in fact a seized synchronous motor can make a convincing buzzing sound and not burn out for a long time. The pump intake could be blocked...
If the symptoms indicate there could be something wrong with the pump then visual confirmation is required and not merely the assumption.

Fixerfailure, is the knock-out plug still inside if the garbage disposal inlet?
Stick a screwdriver in there to make sure.

Look at your manual, usually available on net for reading or downloading. Blink lights are often used to code out a problem with various combinations and repetition rates to indicate trouble code number for look-up in manual.

Take a flat blade screwdriver and insert it into the drain port that you connect the dishwasher drain line to. Take a hammer and tap the screwdriver until the plug pops loose inside the disposal. Now, reach down inside the disposal and retrieve the plug. You should not have to disassemble the disposal to do this. I hope this answers you're question.

Check disposal to see if d/w knock out was removed form disposal. If so check drain hose for kinks or restrictions.
Ie unistally hose from disp and see if d/w will drain into bucket. IF not uninstall d/w and check for kinks.
