Not familiar with this specific model, but I had a similar problem where the water jet slots in the dishwasher's top spray arm were blocked by food debris. The filters were nylon and had started to disintegrate, and when water was recirculated debris was pumped round & blocked the jets. Suggest check your filters are ok/seating properly & then check the jets are not clogged. My spray arm came off easily to enable me to clean it out.

On my Kenmore model 665.13489K900, it does not clean well and appears to have a problem with getting or circulating water inside to all areas, especially the top shelf.


Check the center wash arm assembly. If the center wash arm isn't getting water, all of the dishes in the upper rack will come out dirty. Check to be sure the center wash arm assembly is mating properly with the water supply nozzle in the back of the dishwasher. Also check to be sure the little holes in the center wash arm aren't clogged or blocked. * Run empty cycle using vinegar and baking soda lime scale problem will resolve.

Dishwasher doesnt wash top rack ....model 665 1352k700...ser fu4706403


HI,

YOU WILL PROBABLY FIND THE TOP SPRAY ARM IS BLOCKED WITH FOOD. UNSCREW THE SPRAY ARM AND MAKE SURE ALL THE SMALL HOLES ARE CLEAR OF ANY BLOCKAGES AS THIS IS WHERE THE WATER COMES OUT OF TO WASH THE PLATES.IF THESES ARE BLOCKED THEN YOU GET POOR WASH RESULTS

Kenmore model 6651701 arms are not moving, water has no pressure to move arms what is the problem, is there a motor, filter?


water is sprayed up a cylinder to the arms which usually spin you may be able to lift the arm off and check the oulet holes for clogs if this is the problem clean them out and purcase a bottle of dishwasher cleaner use it on wash cycle at least once a month.just place the bottle upside down in the metal utensil tray in the bottom of the dishwasher make sure there is nothing else in the machine and make sure that the water is hot by turning on the hot water tap before you start the cycle,,,Cleaner also has instructions on the label avaiable atanystore that sells your diswwasher soap

Bottom spray arm not rotating


The arm usually will stop rotateing because there is a obstuction in the arm itself you will need to remove the arm normally unclips (older machine used to scew off)When you have the arm out check all hole top and bottom and open any that are blocked rinse out arm and replace give it a wash and see if there is any improovement,let me know.
Thanks

Top rack in Kenmore ultrawash not being cleaned


Check to make sure the upper wash arm is not plugged with debris. All Plates on the bottom rack and bowls on the top. Position the arm at 12 o'clock and check at the end of the cycle to see if it has moved positions.

Kenmore Elite Ultra Wash Dishwasher - top rack arm not spinning


Hi: I just posted a similar problem, but found a solution. After taking the arm, etc. apart (and verifying no blockages), I thought maybe the lack of water pressure was being caused by the fact that there are TWO holes for the top spray arm (higher and lower rack setting) on my model. ie. that water was being forced out of both holes, causing a drop in water pressure, which was causing the top spray arm to stop spinning. I plugged the unused hole with a wine bottle cork (to keep the water from spraying out the unused hole), and voila, it now works.

I wish all appliance fixes were this easy...!

Where is the filter on a Kenmore Quiet Guard 2 dishwasher?


I have a Quiet Guard 4. Same problem so will describe my solution.
1. Remove bottom basket. Remove top basket.
2. Remove bottom washing arm. Unscrew (Gently but firmly) the centre post. Lift arm assembly up and out.
3. Remove overhead conduit. One screw at back, one at top (Philips #2 bit). Rotate whole assembly 45 deg right (Clockwise) and lift off of centre post.
4. Remove centre post (Pull straight up). Remove 4 screws (Star T-20 bit). Lift whole assembly out. Pop off screen and clean.
5. Remove cap over cutter/chopper. There is a single screw at front left (under assembly removed in 4). Remove screw (Star T-15 bit) and cap (Needs some wiggling to free it up). Remove cutter and filter. It is on a spring loaded pin. Pull the cutter blade foreward and then the filter disc straight up. Clean thoroughly as it may be the cause of your problems.
Reassimble. Good luck!

Cyber, did you get down to the chopper screen? If that is clogged with gunk it will restrict the flow and the top arm will not spin. Im going to try to attach a pic of the chopper assy and screen. Catriver..post back
