Question about Dishwashers
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
