Kenmore Ultrawash QuietGuard 3 Dishwasher not draining or rinsing


Our Kenmore Ultrawash QuietGuard 3 Dishwasher is not draining completely at the tend of the cycle. If we press the "Cancel and Drain" button, it will drain, but it won't automatically drain at the end of the cycle. Also, i don't think it is washing or rinsing properly, as there is a white film on all the dishes. It looks like a hard water mark.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

    We are using rinse aid, but it is not removing the film since the dishwasher stopped draining properly. Where is the trap? It looks like the spray bar that rotates at the bottom of the dishwasher should come off, but it doesn't come off easily, and I didn't want to wreck it. Thanks.

Hi Claire,
Are you using rinse aid?

There is a solenoid that keeps the water in the washer. It is either faulty or there is something preventing it from closing completely. If there is no power applied to the washer, does it then hold water?

Hello, i have a Kenmore Quietguard standard dishwasher. it is in the "lock" position under dry options and the dishwasher will not start. can you tell me how i might be able to re-start this?

On our Kenmore Quietguard the lock light is at the Air Dry button. Holding the Air Dry button for about 8 seconds turns the lock light off if it is on and on if it is off.

Dishwasher Clean light blinks constantly.

Try turning off the power to the dishwasher at the circuit breaker box. leave the power off for 5 10 mins and then turn breaker back on and try to restart dishwasher. This may reset the board and it may work

Kenmore Ultrawash QuietGuard 3 Dishwasher not draining or rinsing

Not draining may either need new drain motor. or something is blocking the drain pipe.

Spots on dishes means you are using to much detergent or the wrong kind of detergent.

Your owners manuel should tell you what type to use.
