On my Kenmore model 665.13489K900, it does not clean well and appears to have a problem with getting or circulating water inside to all areas, especially the top shelf.


Check the center wash arm assembly. If the center wash arm isn't getting water, all of the dishes in the upper rack will come out dirty. Check to be sure the center wash arm assembly is mating properly with the water supply nozzle in the back of the dishwasher. Also check to be sure the little holes in the center wash arm aren't clogged or blocked. * Run empty cycle using vinegar and baking soda lime scale problem will resolve.

HOW DO YOU CLEAN THE FILTER IN A MDBH979AWS3


This is a self cleaning dishwasher. This means the chopper inside the wash pump assembly crushes all the food waste and pushes it down the drain.
If you are having dirty dishes then the chopper is choked and needs cleaning.

You will have to open the dishwasher wash pump assembly to get there.
See this diagram for details. The chopper is item 6. I am assuming you have cleaned all the wash arms holes etc.

Dishwasher is making a grinding sound, water and pump are working ok Kenmore ultrawash II (15years old) fix or buy another?????


Sounds like something in the pump, only guessing at this point. If you are capable take it apart and check it out. You can tie down the rotating arms inside then run the machine to be sure it is not one of them.
Good Luck,

Kenmore Ultrawash QuietGuard 3 Dishwasher not draining or rinsing


Not draining may either need new drain motor. or something is blocking the drain pipe.

Spots on dishes means you are using to much detergent or the wrong kind of detergent.

Your owners manuel should tell you what type to use.

Kenmore Ultrawash QuietGuard 3 Dishwasher not draining or rinsing


Hi Claire,
Are you using rinse aid?
that may help with the film.you may also have stuff down in the trap causing the water to drain slow.

Dishwasher Kenmore Ultrawash


One possibility is that the screen/filter to the wash units have become totally clogged. (I had this problem because of some particularly dirty water in the dishwasher.) To access the screen requires taking out the cover at the base of the dishwasher arm assemble which can be done without removing the machine, although you'll need a special screw spline screw driver. Given this the repair takes jsut five or ten minutes. Remove the screen clean it out in the sink and replace.
