Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

Have a Kenmore dishwasher (Model 665.16039401) which is six years old. I has been much noisier lately and now it fills at the start of the cycle, but only has a humming sound. Nothing else happens.

    One other note: After figuring out that nothing was happening in the cycle (other than the hum and all the usual lights) I hit the cancel button on the dishwasher and it does drain out the water. Is there a pump motor and a "drive" motor on this unit and, if so, which would I need to replace?

Hi

The humming sound usually comes when the motor is bad and should be replaced. However, first take out the lower access panel out and then clean the drain pump assembly completely, also check the chopper assembly and clean it. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Starting the dishwashing cycle, extreme loud noise when dishwasher starts pumping water. Loud noise stays during pumping cycle. Dishes are clean and dry and no water in tub when cycle finishes.


If your unit is a Kenmore or Whirlpool (there are several other brands that use many of the same parts) and is less than 6 years old then it may pay to first check and clean out the chopper assembly for hard debris. If that doesn't do it then you may want to consider replacing the motor and circulation pump as a complete unit for between $160 and $200. Not too difficult a task for a moderately handy guy with some tools. Maybe 2 hrs. The bearing itself is not serviceable I understand, and would be considerably more difficult. Over six years old then you can buy a great quality machine for about $500.

Funny sound while operating


This happens some times. some times the dishes move due to water pressure!

Reorient the dishes and observe.

Kenmore 665.16039403 leaks water when filling


It is coming from the fill tube. You can pull the unit out or use a mirror to look up underneath. It might have come off or got a hole chewed in it.

Water on floor after Kenmore dishwasher runs


you could fix this, however the price of repair will be 1/2 of the price of a new dishasher.  I would suggest you buy a new oneand not waste money on a six year old dishwasher.  find a good scratch and dent model.

I had the same issue and you will never beleive the solution.
Steps to follow:
1) run one full cycle with no dishes or soap
2) run one full cycle with a dishwasher cleaner like Jetdry
3) run one full cycle with a gallon of white vinager
4) never put soap in the extra in and only fill the main soap bin half way.

should work fine from here on out, but never fill main bin more then half way when you do dishes. also run the hot water in the sink until the water is very hot before starting the dish washer.

Hotpoint LFT114 Fully intergrated dishwasher. Hi I've just installed this machine and I find it very noisy compared to our old one. Everything seems to be working OK and dishes come out clean but can't...


Hi! noises can be very elusive, but some more info might give me enough to narrow down your search or figure out if what you are hearing is normal. First, what dishwasher did you have before? The noise that you are hearing, is it during the fill cycle, the wash cycle , drain cycle or just overall noisier than your old one
