    Thanks for Trying: My sink was not capped and my garbage disposal was not on; however my Kenmore Model Nos. are 14041 / 14045 and 14048 Built-in.



    I had put a load in the dishwasher and noticed water coming on my kitchen floor after the dishwasher had completed its entire cycle. Look into dishwasher and noticed the Tub was filled with water.

    Exact same issue ... no drain air gap, disposal drain wasn't covered, not sure why water backed up. And now our disposal won't turn on, either.

Many dishwasher have their drainlines tied into under sink disposers. If a person caps the sink drain while dishwasher is running, it can back the water back to the washer keeping dishes dirty and backing up water

check your hose going to the disposal. it needs to route up and above the disposal , then loop it back down to the disposal connect. this keeps it from gravity feeding back into your dishwasher. good luck!

Our dishwasher is only 4 months old. Sometimes there will be small particles of food left on some of the plates. Also when we wash glasses in this machine they are cloudy or dirty looking.


Hello,
There are several reasons that the food can be left on the plates. If the washer filter is plugged (partially) then the food particles can remain in the tub and be re-deposited. This can also happen with a dirty sump. According to the specs, your filter is self cleaning, and has a food disposer. The link to your machine is here:

http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_02213742000P

I think, in your case, a good cleaning would help. When the disposer isn't working well, the screen can be coated, and needs to be cleaned to be efficient. Your manual, accessible from the link above, (then select specifications, scroll down to another link) recommends a vinegar wash and is described there.
For heavy duty cleaning, you can (in this order): Add 1/2 cup of salt, 1 cup of baking soda, and 2 cups of vinegar. Spread the ingredients around the screen, one at a time, at the bottom of the tub. It will begin to foam. When it has quit foaming, add 2 cups of bleach, and run a hot cycle (Pre-heat the water by running the hot water faucet closest to the dishwasher until hot).
Best regards, --W/D--

Water remains in diswasher


HI. check the following areas for fualts.

1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

Leaky Tub


Are you sure that water leaking out from these two points. If this is the reason for the leaking, it's absolutely a manufacturing problem and you should forward your problem to Sears to take care fot it !! Generally,this problem could be solved by daubing an epoxy glue on the leaking points. Good luck !!

Baumatic mini4 dishwasher


My first question - If your dishwasher is still under warranty why you don't ask manufacturer service to take care for it !! Water supply to the diswasher is done through an electromagnet valve,loocated at the pipe's enterance to the machine. A defect in the valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it, and the valve may leak and drip water freely into the tub. Check if water are coming into the tub when the diswasher is off. If this is the situation- Open the valve (very easy to do it)and clean it from scale or other dirt (take care not to lose any part). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from the machine before doing it !!!!! In most cases it should solve your problem, but if not - you should replace the valve with a new one. Good luck !!
