Hi

Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump.
Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back with complete model# for any further assistance.

I have a Kenmore ultra wash model 665, stock# 15951. When the tub starts to fill the water runs out the drain.


This means there is either an air gap in the drain hose or the drain hose loop is less than 32" high preventing back flow

My kenmore diswasher model 665 15772 - lock button is flashing - dishwasher will not start. Can you help me?


6/3 I bought a Kenmore Ultra Wash dishwasher, Model 665. As many others have posted, my dishwasher also do does not automatically drain, leaving about 3" of water in the bottom of the machine. The only way to pump the water from the machine is to use the Drain/Cancel button, which cancels the cycle, and the dry option, leaving the dishes wet and spotty.

I just contacted a tech rep with Sears Repair and was told this is a Factory Defect with this model. Whirlpool (manufacturer) is aware of the problem and working on a resolution. Meanwhile, Whirlpool (via Sears and K-Mart) offers a free service call to install the "retrofit kit" that should solve the problem.

Even though Sears is aware of this problem, you will be expected to jump through their hoops - did you install a disposal at the same time and knock out the plug (FYI - if the plug is not knocked out, the Drain/Cancel option will not work and the machine will not drain at all). They will also ask if there is anything blocking the drain (FYI - if there is a foreign material block of any kind, the Drain/Cancel option will not work and the machine will not drain.

If this dishwasher (Model 665) does not drain automatically, THIS IS A FACTORY DEFECT. A retrofit kit is available to correct. In the DC Metro area, the wait time for an in home service call is three weeks.

If you have this problem, call Sears 1-800-4MY HOME and schedule a FREE retrofit kit installation

ALSO, call your sales person, and the appliance dept manager, at the store where you purchased the appliance to let them know this product is defective.

Built in modle 665 does not drain


I am assuming that the modle 665 you are refering to is the first 3 characters of the model number???
if your unit is making all the normal noises it should make when draining, yet is not ejecting any water, or is leaving some and another drain cycle is necessary to remove all water the drain tube that screws into the pump/motor assembly may be cloged with larger than recommend particles that have made their way to it.. usually things like cupboard door bumpers that fall off into the unit get ground down till they fit through the chopper plate but are still to large to fit easily through that tube..
remove the kick plate below the units door, place a pan, etc under the drain hose where it connects to the tube, remove the hose, then unscrew the tube and check for obstructions..
hope this helps.
best of luck,
ttfn

Dishwasher doesn't drain fully


Some model 665 DW have a check valve that is attached between the sump and drain hose that may have a blockage..... Remove the drain hose from the long plastic valve then carefully unscrew the check valve from the sump. Inspect for debris.
