Question about Kenmore 16602 / 16604 / 16609 Built-in Dishwasher
Can you access the drain hose without moving the dishwasher out? Is it close to the garbage disposal. You probably have a plugged drain. I would begin by plugging the sink that the garbage disposal is in and filling it full of hot water. Then I would unplug it and turn on the disposal and continue running water in it. This should clean the disposal drain well.
If you can access the dishwasher drain hose, you will need to disconnect it and look for a plug. If you can unplug the dishwasher do this first. It may be hardwired in, but some are not. It will all be behind the adjacent cabinetry. Have towels and a bucket handy. It is a good idea to always run some water through the disposal after running the dishwasher (they usually drain into that sink.)
If you cannot access the drain, I would clean the disposal and check all other household drains for slow drainage before calling a plumber. or your dishwasher repairman.
Good luck to you and thank you for using Fix Ya.
