SOURCE: Dishwasher isn't draining

It could be the pump, but not only. Check first that you don't have any clog in the drain line. If drain line is clean, open machine's rear panel and : - Look if the pump works. If it doesn't work check that pump get power (with multi-meter). In case it get power (and does't work), it should be replaced. - In case the pump works - The machine has a drain valve with an electric solenoid (the drain pipe connected to it). When it get power the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain line. Test that it get power. In case it get power and dosen't work - You can easyly open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from machine before doing it !!!!! Check as well for valve's coil resistance. In case you have no resistance measurement - you should replace for a new valve. Good luck !

You have to have a good seal. Get a hose washer from your local hardware store and replace both of them on the hose if they are like a garden hose. If you still don't get any water to the unit, post again and I'll step you through it.

SOURCE: Kenmore portable dishwasher not draining

Your dishwasher pump ejects the water. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher, but first you need to remove the lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray arm support.

Look for an impeller--a round plastic fan blade-type of device that spins around. This is the wash impeller, which forces the water through the spray arm. Beneath the wash impeller is the drain impeller, which is similar in size and shape to the wash impeller. The drain impeller pushes the water toward the drain port. These components make up the pump. If any of the pump components are defective, you need to replace them.

Drain valve and/or solenoid Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water.

Other dishwashers simply reverse the direction of the motor to drain the dishwasher. These units don't have a drain valve. Instead, there's a drain hose connected directly to the pump housing.

Belt One brand of dishwasher uses a belt to drive the pump. If this belt is broken or has fallen off, replace it.

Motor If the motor isn't turning or working, the unit won't drain. First check to be sure you have power to the dishwasher. If not, see the section "It doesn't work at all." If the motor hums but doesn't turn, it may need to be replaced.

Some dishwashers are susceptible to getting stuck if you don't run them regularly. If you haven't run the dishwasher for more than a week, you may need to manually spin the motor to free it up. If the motor is defective, you need to replace it. Dishwasher motors can't be serviced.

What do I need to hook up my new portable dishwasher to my kitchen sink?


Go to a hardware store and get a Dishwasher Hook-up Kit. It will include a flexible hose along with several adapters. You dishwasher should come with a drain hose. You will also need a 3-wire "pigtail" (an extension cord with no receptacle or socket at the end). Your dishwasher whould have come with installation instructions, but seriously, if you've never done that before (or done similar work before), you should call a professional installer or at least and experienced handy-man.

I think that the valve assembly in the end of your attachment hose is having problems, check with Kenmore and see if a replacement one is available and if your dishwasher is new enough perhaps it might be under warranty?

Hose comes off of the faucet


A quick easy fix would be to get a hose clamp and tighten it down on the hose to keep it from popping off

Kenmore top load portable washer, model 110.42722200


i had same prob. at my daughters house, similar model. first time a hose popped off the top(i removed the lid), later i noticed leaks because my son in law was using oxy clean and it foamed over. my advice is, put machine on its side and look for loose/popped off hoses, dont use too much soap or additives, which will trick the water level sensor or just pour over that little drum

Snap on fitting no longer stays on faucett


go to www.searspartsdirect.com and you can search by your model number for the dishwasher or any other kenmore part. The schematics magnify as you mouse over them and then you can scroll down to see the matching part number. The part 3378117 is the whole hose assembly including the faucet coupler and the full length of the hoses. Notice that the part number 3378117 has been substituted with W10217197. When I Googled for "W10217197 dishwasher" there were a number of vendors selling that part including ApplianceZone.com selling it for $20 less than Sears and other vendors. Unfortunately the way the faucet coupler is crimped onto the hoses you have to replace the full length of hose [not just the coupler] but I have a problem that requires the whole hose. I've opened the cabinet up - which required a star headed driver - and from there it's just a matter of removing basic connectors inside the box.
