Dishwasher does not want to drain

Hi there,

I am renting at a place with an old built in Kenmore dishwasher (I am not sure which model, it only says "Kenmore Ultra wash" on the front) and the water does not want to drain. I have removed the water distributor at the bottom and have found some paper and a fork around the edges of the circular drain, which I removed. However, the dishwasher still does not want to drain. I wanted to open it further, but I need a special tool to remove the screws and I thought I will ask advice first.

I would appreciate if you can help

    My Kenmore - model 665 - will not drain either. It's about 8 yearws old. I've never had a problem with it before. I cleaned some bits of paper and two plastic spoons out of the drain area, there doesn't seem to be anything else in there but it still won't drain. Help!

Make sure that the draining-hose is clean .... Try to put the draining-hose downwards .... it is possible that the pomp can not push the water high enough .... if the hose runs downwards ... gravity will help !

To locate the model # for your dishwasher, you'll need to look at the following places---

My dishwasher won't drain. It is a Kenmore and about 8 yrs old


There is a panel tht separetes the top from the bottom you need to unscrew it. Place a pan under it after you see a little spout/drain hanging down that is probably fill with gunt what ever water that is in it will drain out clean it out , replace it after you've let the water run out. once you've screw it back see if your dishwasher is draining correctly.

You need to prime the dishwasher by placing two large cups of water into the bottom.
