Kenmore 665 Dishwasher not draining.

Hi:
A friend's Kenmore 665 dishwasher is not draining. Some of the info I have read says to take the pump apart and check for clogs.
If it is not clogs, and all seems ot be clear, does it need a kit replacement, or?
Apparently the machine still washes fine, but leaves a coupke inches of water in the base.
When the "drain" button is pushed, it used ot drain the water out (about three times) but now just leaves a very sudsy water ont the bottom without expelling much of the water.
Ideas?
Should I take it apart and check for clogs?
Which way does the impeller screw turn out? Right or left hand turn?
Thanks

SOURCE: dishwasher runs, water doesn't drain out

sounds to me that you may have some suds residue in the dishwasher that keeps it from draining completely. Get you some dishwasher cleaner which you can purchase at wal-mart or wherever you buy your detergent, and clean out your dishwasher. It is a inexpensive test. Alot less expensive than having a tech come to your house. Make sure that your drain hose is mounted higher that where it goes into the drain. This is also a common problem that I encounter in the field. Hope this helps. Let me know if I can help you futher.

SOURCE: kenmore 665 dishwasher will not drain

Hi

If the water doesn't drain from your dishwasher, check these:

Drain line/air gap A clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reason that a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hose or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.

Pump Your dishwasher pump ejects the water. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher, but first you need to remove the lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray arm support. 

Look for an impeller--a round plastic fan blade-type of device that spins around. This is the wash impeller, which forces the water through the spray arm. Beneath the wash impeller is the drain impeller, which is similar in size and shape to the wash impeller. The drain impeller pushes the water toward the drain port. These components make up the pump. If any of the pump components are defective, you need to replace them.

Drain valve and/or solenoid Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water. 

Other dishwashers simply reverse the direction of the motor to drain the dishwasher. These units don't have a drain valve. Instead, there's a drain hose connected directly to the pump housing.

Belt One brand of dishwasher uses a belt to drive the pump. If this belt is broken or has fallen off, replace it.

Motor If the motor isn't turning or working, the unit won't drain. First check to be sure you have power to the dishwasher. If not, see the section "It doesn't work at all." If the motor hums but doesn't turn, it may need to be replaced. 

Some dishwashers are susceptible to getting stuck if you don't run them regularly. If you haven't run the dishwasher for more than a week, you may need to manually spin the motor to free it up. If the motor is defective, you need to replace it. Dishwasher motors can't be serviced.

Timer Part of what the timer does is control the motor and drain valve. If the timer doesn't work properly, the water may not drain and you need to replace the timer. This problem is uncommon.

SOURCE: Kenmore elite dishwasher leaves food particles on dishes

If someone is putting dishes in the washer and obstructing the spray ams that would cause food to stay on dishes. After loading dishwasher and pushing in baskets make sure the spray arm doesnt hit any of the dishes causing them to not clean properly. If that doesnt work or is definately not your problem try removing the spray arm and seeing if it has food inside of it. Some times they get food build up in them and need to be flushed out.

SOURCE: Dishwasher (Kenmore 665 Ultra Wash) won't drain. Suggestions?

I just fix mine today, august 21st. If you hear the pump running, which mine was, then there is a blockage more than likely. Mine was blocked on the inside of the drain hose inlet of the disposal. Pull off the hose and feel inside of the inlet. scrap it out and it should work fine.

If the dishwasher is connected to a disposal, there is a knock-out on
the disposal inside the stub on, a screwdriver will remove it. Catch it
so it will not go in the disposal.

Is it a new install? If so check the drain inlet under the sink. There is a round plug in the drain ( if it's new ) where the dishwasher drain line connects to the pic pipe under your sink.( use screw driver to pop it inward don't worry it won't clog your drain )
If it's not a new install the drain pump may just be worn out. Or the butterfly valve above the pump may not be opening. Manually open this valve, using a screw driver while it's running spin the dial until it's in drain mode. You will see a solenoid that pops up and down connected to the butterfly. Use the screwdriver to push the valve lever open all the way. Usually downward. hope this helps.
