Question about Kenmore Dishwashers

Open Question

We purchased our home 3 yrs ago and already has a Kenmore dishwasher (model #587-16163401 Serial #TH44058725) The previous owner didnt leave the manual so we have no idea how old our dishwasher is even tho it doesnt look that old as its stainless steel. Everytime we use the dishwasher...smells comes out of the sink briefly and its really stink! IT doesnt seems to clean the dishes as good as it should be and on the bottome of the dishwasher looks like a round filter like thats removeable but it doesnt stand straight in the hole like it should...uneven.

SOURCE: Dishwasher won't clean

It sounds like you need to use a chemical cleaner to remove lime, or other sediment from your machine. If you go to the following web site you will see a product called dishwasher magic which will thoroughly clean it out. Use this product at least once a month to keep your problem from reoccurring.

Although I previously posted with the same problem of a film on the dishes after cleaning, I did find a section in the owner's manual which solved my problem. Lift up the rinse aid cap on the inside door - the factory setting is on "4". The rinse aid works in conjunction with your local water, which has variations in it's hardness or softness. When your dishes are streaky, lower the rinse aid setting to 1 or 2. If your dishes are spotted, raise the rinse aid setting higher.

I would say it is an earthing problem, check over your earth wires, normally black and grey is neutral, check to make sure your earth wires are connected properly, and tight, better to completely turn appliance off by disconecting power plug while doing this, take care not to play around with the wires too much to prevent a nasty electric shock

Want owners manual for kenmore dryerelite heavy duty king size capacity ultra quite pake


Sometimes all you need to get your major home appliance working is the use and care, owner's manual or user's guide that has long since disappeared. The resources listed here will help you to get a replacement manual with the minimum of fuss.
Some of the larger manufacturers now make owner's manuals, care and use guides and installation instructions available for download on-line in Adobe Acrobat .PDF file format. If you don't already have the Adobe Acrobat plug-in for your browser or an Adobe Acrobat file reader, you can get it for free here:Of course the exact model number off the appliance (and occasionally the serial number as well) will be required to get the proper manual for it.
If you need help in locating the model and serial number identification tag on your dishwasher, fridge, stove, clothes washer, dryer or other *major* home appliance, check the Appliance411 'Repair Parts' section's

Kenmore Elite 17483 Dishwasher Caught Fire!


Had the exact same problem (Control panel burning up, sparking, and smoking during wash cycle) last night with our Kenmore Elite DW model 665.16293400 purchased Nov. 2004. I have reported it to the CPSC and www.kitchenaidfire.com and will be contacting Sears first thing tomorrow. It is outrageous that this problem is apparently so widespread with nothing being done about it! I have no doubt my kitchen would have been in flames if I had not been sitting right here to shut off power to the D/W.

Hi lilwing,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: you have a ge dishwasher you purchased two years ago. you have misplaced your owners manual. you can only tell you it is a ge quietpower 3. you don't even know the model since you've misplaced your owners manual. it started with the timer for speed cycle set itself between 50 and 60 minutes, and you knew that wasn't right. and then yesterday it did not drain all the water out. you know there is no food particles in it because you clean them before you put them in the washer and the drain line it is hooked up to is working proberly also. can i help?

First, the model and serial numbers are in the door jam. Open the door and look right and left.
The rest sounds like a bad control board, It will require a pro. If the d/w has a few years on it you may want to consider the price of repair verses replacement.

Feel free contact me again!
