Hi



When the Dishwasher is not filling in, you'll need to check for the water inlet valve, the filter screen and the float switch/assembly. Also check for the float assembly inside the dishwasher. When water is filling your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages.
If these are fine then it's due to Water Inlet Valve. Use a multimeter and check for the continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly.

Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

I have a Kenmore portable dishwasher. The sink connector(not the adapter, but the white connector that has hoses attached) spits water out of the bottom during it's entire cycle. I have used other portable...


I think that the valve assembly in the end of your attachment hose is having problems, check with Kenmore and see if a replacement one is available and if your dishwasher is new enough perhaps it might be under warranty?

There are likely more pieces of glass in the impeller of the motor keeping it from turning. It will have to be disassembled and cleared.

Kenmore portable dishwasher not working


is the buzz sound when you ask it to drain or ask it to fill with water? or is the buzz sound when it is trying to wash? IF it is when you ask it to drain either you have something stuck in your air gap causeing no drain or there is something in your pump I would check the easy stuff first by checking the air gap this is if it is buzzing when you ask it to drain. let me know what is the senario.

if you can get underneath it try spinning the motor manually (after turning off the circuit breaker). sometimes the motors on dishwashers get jammed.

Water inlet valve Kenmore dishwasher


Okay handy Mike,

First of all, is this a new dishwasher? Or, is it a used one? The reason I ask is because there should be a warranty with a new appliance and you should not have to worry, or have to pay for, any repairs.

The problem you are experiencing could very well be a water inlet valve problem (good assessment), but may also be something more simple. The dishwasher has a float inside the tub that is supposed to shut the water off, when it reaches the appropriate fill level. Check the float to make sure it moves up and down and that you can hear the switch "clicking". Sometimes small items get stuck under the float and will keep in the up (or shut off position).

For some helpful part locator drawings refer to searspartsdirect.com and type in your model number. An illustration of the water inlet valve can be found under the "Frame" heading in the next page as item number 24 (part number 154195301). The float and float switch can be found under the "Tub" heading as items number 13 (part number 154144301) and 24 (part number 5300809863), respectively.

If you require further assistance, please let me know. I hope its something simple and you don't require parts. But, if you do, you know where you can get them. If you do not wish to order on line, use the part numbers provided and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. I hope this helps you. 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.
