There are a few things that can cause this: there is something sitting over the drain plug such as a piece of paper from a bottle or can (you probably already checked this though), the drain where the water is supposed to go is plugged (usually into a garbage disposal), or the pump and/or belt is shot. I don't know about your model specifically but Kenmore is a great product and usually have very few problems. If the pump is not pumping it it is generally because it is plugged. Check the inlets and outlets for the water to be sure everything is clear. The pump can be replaced fairly easily by the do-it-yourselfer but if you are not comfortable working on electrical appliances I would call a repairman to do the job.

need to be sure the filter in the base of the dishwasher is clear of anything that would keep it from draining such as a screen filter. also need to check the hose that drains to the sink is clear. from there it is most likely a pump or timer issue.

Their are a few steps check to get the water to "kick on" again.
  1. Check and see if the water was turned off to the dishwasher under the sink -No? Next step
  2. Check if there is soap build up make sure the float can move freely it could be giving a false single that water is filled in the tube. Clean up any build up. No? Next step
  3. Take off the kick panel and inspect the wires leading up to the dishwasher inlet/fill valve. Sometimes mice like to chew on the wires. Clean and reconnect. No? Next step
  4. Change out your Water inlet/fill valve
That should "kick on" your water to the dishwasher again.
Hope your having a great weekend and please rate me.

Hi.

Check for blockage. Check both the drain hose at the back, and check drain well and hose attached to pump.

If that does not fix the problem, replace the pressure switch that is often responsible for drain problems. Ensure that there is no blockage first.

Most likely your line is stopped up. Take off water line under sink and rub it into a bucket, If water runs out it is stopped up in the line. If it does not run out, it's the solenoid that lets the water run out you have to replace.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. To resolve this press and hold the No Heat Dry/Air DRY button for 15-20 seconds, if this won't resolve the issue then you'll have to replace the control panel. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
