Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

Dishwasher kenmore 665.

I checked the capacitor wiring - OK.
I pulled the motor to see if anything was obstructing it. Problem is I don't know what it should look like. pulling the motor was easy. one screw and it twisted right out. the shaft on the motor may have disintegrated. not sure. the tip of it looks like a sharpened pencil.

There is a round plastic cover that covered the entrance to the inside of the housing. I pried it out, it has a heavy O ring around it. the pieces on the inside fellout, to not sure of the order. but there is what appears to be an impeller which also has a shaft just like the one coming out of the motor, that looks like a sharpened pencil. the other end of this impeller has a little white ratchet that looks like a large version of the ratchet you find inside a ball point pen. It appears that the end opposite the ratchet is broken.

    there is a pn on what is probably the impeller, but it's worn too much to make out. there's also a pn on the round cover that housed the impeller. don't know if that helps any: 8531019

Kenmore dishwasher model 665-16629000 is leaking out the front. Checked the gasket, ok. Checked the door screws, took the door off, no cracks.

Before I took the machine out from under the cabinet, I would take a really strong light and some hand mirrors and try to see it leaking with the front cover off.
There is not a good chance this can be done.
Other than that, I would pull the machine out from the hole and test it where I could look underneath.
Should be either a drain hose of an inlet hose giving you trouble.
God bless your efforts.

Breaker at dishwasher trips right after water has filled.Spray arm has not turned.

There is an electrical short circuit, check/reverse the leads going to the pump or heater.. Sounds like controls and water valve are fine. If wires are not connected to the correct locations you need a new motor because it is internal.

Check spray arm for obstructions and if it is clear the motor impeller could be slipping or water system may need a good cleaning with CLR.

Kenmore Dishwasher won't drain

If you opened and closed the door and it started, that sounds like a bad, door switch in the console.

But you did hear a hum sound when it tryed to drain, it could be the drain solenoid, or the motor/pump assembly.

Take off the bottom access and look at the solenoid when it starts to drain, the piston in the solenoid should move freely, up and down with the white drain flapper that it connects to.

Also check for bad wiring connections at the power junction box where the power hooks up to it under the dishwasher, i have seen the wire nuts either come loose or burn off due to loose connections.

Kenmore 665 no lights on panel water in bottom

This is commen with these. you need to take the door and remove the screws around it. You need to gain access to the controller. on the controller you will see a white peice with 2 balck wires going to it that is your fuse. replace this and that will solve your problem.

Kenmore Dishwasher does not wash

Stew, Im not really sure what model you have 665, 587, 363 or what. If it's a 665, it sounds like the wash motor is not getting power. Remove the toe panel and look at the start capacitor. See if one of the wires came off during the reinstallation. Should be on the left side of the wash motor. If one of the wires is off, wash motor won't run. If that's ok, check the main harness to the motor. Catriver
