Question about Kenmore Elite Stainless Steel 24" BuiltIn Dishwasher with TurboZone Rotating Spray Jets 13103

1 Answer

Pump won't stay in the rubber support mount and rests on the floor in spite of continuous efforts to put it back in the slot. There seems to be no clip/bracket to hold it in place. Also the green clean light keep flashing and as a result the cycles won't run. All suggestions in the product manual have been tried.

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

I can tell you the clean lite issue is typically an indication of poor water circulation and it actually means a heating error occurred...but as I said it can't heat if the water doesn't circulate properly.

As for the other part of your problem, I'm not clear on what it is you're referring to. Do you mean the drain pump, as shown here...

Pump won't stay in the - macmarkus_402.jpg
Or the main wash motor & pump assembly shown here...shown upside down of course,

Hopefully once we can clarify the issue I'll be able to help and will in whatever manner I can.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

It makes a lot of noise and doesn't seem to agitate as well, there is a rubber substance I found on the floor upon moving it


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Look in the section for the motor, pump gearcase and you'll see the Motor Coupler.

Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive washers use a "Motor Coupler" between the motor and transmission.

It's used as a fail safe device and consists of three parts.

Two of the parts are the same, plastic units with three prongs that fit on one of the motor output shafts and the other on the transmission input shaft. Between them is a rubber piece with six holes. (Possibly the source of the rubber on the floor.)

The power from the motor is transmitted through the rubber piece to the transmission.

The other shaft on the motor directly drives the pump. This is likely why the machine drains.

If the motor coupler is broken, or worn, the motor may not be able to send full power to the transmission for agitating or spinning.

See the following for how to remove the cabinet, pump, motor and motor mounting plate to inspect and replace the motor coupler.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137

If the coupler looks damaged, it's a relatively easy fix.

Pry the plastic pieces from the motor and transmission. Some people use a claw hammer but I've found that using a small (6 inch) pry bar works well.

Carefully fit the plastic pieces over the motor and transmission shafts and press them in place (Use a 1/2" of larger socket to put pressure equally around the pieces.

Put the rubber piece on the transmission plastic piece.

Replace the motor mounting plate.

Carefully line up the plastic prongs on the motor based plastic piece to the three un-used holes in the rubber piece. If they don't line up right, the coupler could be damaged.

Mount the motor, don't forget the two screws, put the pump back on the motor and use its' clips.

Put the cabinet back on, don't forget to plug the lid switch back in and re-mount the console.

It rattles and vibrate very noisy when making coffe the machine is not even a year old


Hi Your pump may have come loose from its mounts. If the are shipped upside down, the pump can slide out of the mounting brackets. The rubber pump mounts just need to slid back into their slots.

Kenmore Top Loading Washer Series 80 Super Capacity/Heavy Duty Model #110.27892790 During the spin cycle it is making a strange noise (like a belt going bad). It's not the banging sound that you hear when...

How do you separate the motor from the housing?


Remove the bolts in the back of the plastic strainer housing, that will take the basket assembly off the pump.
The diffuser/ should be visible, this simply pops off with a little twist. The impeller should be now be visible
Remove the metal cap from the back of the pump.
Remove the rubber cap on the back of the motor under the metal case, (may not have one)
You will see a the back of the motor shaft and a slot that a flat head screw driver fits into.
Now is a tricky part that is somewhat dangerous.
You need to hold the impeller and turn that motor shaft with the screwdriver counter clockwise. It's best to hold the impeller with a rag for a better grip. You need to make sure you're using a beefy screwdriver that fits that slot well, or you might slip and jab yourself with the screwdriver.
It is tough to remove. Be careful.
Once the impeller is removed, you will see the seal plate, the bolts for this are on the back out the motor mount plate and can be removed with little effort.
You should now be down to a just a motor.
You may need to buy a replacement seal, as they tend to fall apart once tampered with.

Motor mounts


get a piece of wood just big enough to put on the oil pan and put just a little pressure with a floor jack to lift up the motor and take pressure off the mounts. Next loosen the bolts, but dont pull them out just yet, and adjust the floor jack to the point the bolts come out with a little or no effort.
