The motor may be siezed, or there may be something in the impeller that is keeping the motor from turning.
The only way to know for sure is to remove the motor unit and visually inspect it. If you cannot manually move the impeller or if it is very difficult to turn, then you will need to replace the motor unit assembly.
Its costly $155.36 plus shipping at www.searspartsdirect.com But if the motor is bad then the motor is bad.
Just curious, how old is the dishwasher?

This might help you - this type pump assembly doesn't seem to be a serviceable unit - just replaceable.

Kenmore Elite frontloader flashes f problem seems to be intermittent


it would first try cleaning out all the filters inside the dishwasher then run it again. And if it still sounds like the wash motor is grinding or humming badly then you may have a seizing wash motor. And if it doesn't drain well either you may have food caught in the drain motor as well. And cleaning it out if you find a lot of debris may help. But if after cleaning that too and still doing the same thing you will need to replace the drain moto

Kenmore Elite 665.17053400. Powers up ok, fills up with water ok, but wash cycle won't start. I can hear the motor trying to turn but sounds like its seized up. If I cancel the wash, the machine drains...


This dishwasher has a very sophisticated wash system. In order to improve the wash efficiency it uses a chopper and a soil sensor. It is very likely the chopper assembly is clogged which is blocking the water from circulation and straining the wash motor.

See this diagram. Item 6 is the chopper. Worst case is the pump motor needs replacement. This is item 10.

Good luck

Does not drain


The light buzzing of the motor doesn't mean the pump is in good condition and actually is being driven by the motor, in fact a seized synchronous motor can make a convincing buzzing sound and not burn out for a long time. The pump intake could be blocked...

If the symptoms indicate there could be something wrong with the pump then visual confirmation is required and not merely the assumption.
