If the hose is connected to a food disposal system, which was recently installed, then you will have to puncture the hard plastic piece inside the hole where the hose was connected to the disposal.

Disconnect the hose and drain the hose as much as you can.

MAKE SURE YOU UNPLUG THE DISPOSAL and the DISHWASHER.

The piece is inside the hole and you will have to use a ice pick or a screwdriver. It took me some time to do because of the hard plastic and the ackward positioning of the disposal. The piece is the size of a quarter and it is perforated for the purpose of puncturing.

Once punctured through, take a pair of pliers to pull the piece from the inside of the disposal where you place the food to be grinded. Throw the piece away and connect the hose. Plug back the disposal and dishwasher and you should be ready to go.

You may want to try:
Press a series of four buttons in quick succession. Press "Heated Dry," "Normal Wash," "Heated Dry" and "Normal Wash" to instruct your Kenmore dishwasher to run a short diagnostic test.
Wait for two minutes while your Kenmore dishwasher runs its diagnostic test.
Press the "Cancel/Drain" button once your dishwasher has completed its diagnostic test. This should reset your dishwasher control panel.
Check to make sure that there's no standing water in the bottom of your dishwasher. Standing water in your dishwasher may indicate that your dishwasher has stopped mid-cycle. You will need to press the "Cancel/Drain" button before you can reset your dishwasher control panel.

Dishwasher won't drain completely. Several inches of standing water left after last cycle


Sounds like the wash/drain selector valve might be stuck. my Kenmore operating solenoid rusted and hung up. I cleaned and oiled it up. You can also have something that got into the valve and it won't close, or an obstruction in the drain hose or the drain pipe connector. Something is restricting the flow or the pump itself may have a bad impeller. Does it wash with vigor or has it lost a little oomph and sound different? Does it leave any debris on the dishes?

My Dishwasher works but still leaves some standing water.


Check the filter unit located at the bottom (inside) rear for clogging. Sometimes food will accumulate in the filter and not allow the unit to completely drain.

Water standing in bottom of dishwasher,after wash cycle is finished? This is a Kenmore model 665.1565591


My problem too recently.

I blew compressed air back through the drain line and let it bubble up in the standing water in the dishwasher. Then I put it through another cycle and everything was fine. Something must have gotten clogged and the air blew it out.
