The problem appears to stem from the float and float switch. The float is a mushroom shaped plastic part that resides on the bottom left, just inside the door. It appears that the float does not release the float switch, causing the dishwasher to think it is full of water, and won't allow the dishwasher to fill. It's a relatively straight forward repair, but even with a new part, the same scenario is likely to repeat itself until the float or float switch is modified by Kenmore.

YOUR MAN WAS OF ABSOLUTLY NO HELP IN SOLVING MY PROBLEM. I ENDED UP CALLING SEARS AND THEY SENT A TECH OUT. YOUR MAN SAID TO TAKE THE DISHWASHER OUT AND TURN IN ON IT'S BACK AND I COULD ACCESS THE PUMP. THE TECH SAID THIS WAS NOT TRUE. YOU CAN ACCESS THE PUMP FROM THE INSIDE OF THE DISHWASHER. IT IS APPARENT TO ME THAT YOUR TECH HAD NO IDEA ABOUT THE MACHINE. AS IT TURNED OUT, THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH THE DISHWASHER. IT HAD A KINK IN THE DISCHARGE HOSE.....P

First perform a vinegar cycle wash in the dishwasher. Pour a cup of vinegar into the bottom of the dishwasher. Keep the temperature at the highest setting possible and perform a wash cycle.Then start using a dishwasher most probably that would solve the problem. If this does not solve the problem then there must be some parts worn out or faulty creating the problem.

There are many probable causes of failure .

To clean the dishes the water temperature is essential.It the water is not hot then the dishes will not be cleaned properly.So check the water temperature.

Also check the filter in your dishwasher.Clean the filter if there is accumulation of debris in the filter

If you are in an hard water zone , then try reducing the amount of detergent used and then try cleaning the dishes.

Water in bottom of kenmore elite ultra wash dishwasher


you must check the filters that are at the bottom under the spray arm
then you must start and then hold down cancel or stop and it should kick in the automatic water discharge mode and activate the water pump if this does not work you need new dishwasher pump installed which can be found online by googleing your model number. gut if this all works then the small flapper thats internal on the pump isnt sealing and allowing water to flow back into the bottom. last but not least you might need a new control board.

Please provide model number of the kenmore dishwasher.

Is there water in the base when the wash is complete? There could be couple of pumps in some Kenmore dishwashers - so hard to know which one until model number is known.

Smelly dishes from Kenmore Ultra Wash


If you post the model number of your dishwasher plus its approximate age (in years) I can help more.

But the most common cause is a weakening pump motor. On many dishwashers, the wash pump motor is also the drain motor. Replacing that motor / pump assembly will solve the problem. While you are replacing the pump, check the heating element to confirm that it is not shorted out or broken.

For now, add a cap full of bleach to the water _after_ the initial dishwasher fill cycle ends and the wash cycle begins. White vinegar would also work, but this will not fix your problem.

Good Luck!

Kenmore dishwasher


fatubu, are you sure you have the correct model number, Im not finding anything on the posted model. They had an issue on models close to this that had an issue with a twisted or missing seal in the pump assy. causing water to fill the pressure switch hose. The dishwasher would drain water after the fill. The fix was to replace the pump and motor assy. Catriver..post back.
