Hello, welcome to FixYa.

I understand by reading your post (which indicates it is a Kenmore dishwasher) you appear to have a water filling concern, however if you could verify the machine is not getting water but maybe just not circulating...after it fills you should see water just below the element.

I would be much better equipped to help without generalizing. Initialy based on your post, it could be a fill valve, or the float stuck in the overfill position.

I'll watch for your reply and try and help going forward. Thank you.
Regards,
Macmarkus :)

13 yr old dishwasher suddenly stopped working mid pre wash. Water left in bottom of machine. Power point is fine. Will not start at all now though. No lights turn on either. Is it fixable ?


If it is 13 years old, it has most likely reached its end of life--whatever the cause, something has malfunctioned. However, a service technician would probably be able to advise.

Hi we have a Kenmore Dishwasher Model # 13744K and it won't turn on. It has water in the bottom that won't drain. Please advise. Thanks. John Webster.


For a dishwasher that was rated pretty high by Consumer Reports, it does not clean very well. In addition, the plastic control button cracked in less than a year and I must constantly clean around the inside of the door ... and I never received my rebate.
Despite those issues, it has been a workhorse. My wife is a daycare provider and the machine is used twice a day (on average) and still runs well. On a monthly basis, I alternate a pint of lemon juice and a pint of vinegar to keep it clean and once per year I use a granulated dishwasher cleaner.

Washing light is flashing and dishwasher won't start


Hi

First make sure that nothing is blocking the drain pump assembly located inside the lower front panel of the dishwasher. If the issue returns after its cleaned then it means that the control board has gone bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Your bosch washer should still be under warranty:

  • Limited warranty, entire appliance, parts and labor (1 year)
  • Limited warranty for non-electronic components; parts only (1st to 2nd year)
  • Limited warranty for control board (microprocessor); parts only (1st to 2nd year)
  • Limited warranty for motor or any component of the motor (1st year to 10th year)

Our dishwasher is five years old and now it is not


Sounds like you might have a bad water valve. Before you change the water valve, see if the valve under your sink is your problem... Turn it off and and back on to see if it helps. Sometimes hard water will clog the valve. If that doesn't help, you may need to replace the dishwashers water valve. Definitely worth fixing. Hope this helps

Dishwasher- water doesn't come into the top of the machine


Peace,
How old is the machine?
More than 9 years old? Throw it out and do not put good money into bad!
Other wise you need hands on service! And a new machine will pay for itself in only a few years!

Bless You!
