Kenmore elite powerwash dishwasher cycle stopped due to not enough water

Posted by Anonymous on

  • Anonymous Apr 28, 2017

    I just spent 2 days debugging the same message on Kenmore Elite model 665.13962K017. After replacing the float switch (which turned out to be unnecessary), and paying $9.95 for the service manual, which is really a Whirlpool manual b/c Kenmore OEMs this unit from them, even though they change the control panel (and it also didn't help), I tried as a last gasp to raise the front of the machine as high as possible using the adjustable feet in front. This presumably allows more water into the machine before the float engages. Seems to work for me...

I just had this problem and it was bad. No matter what I did, the DW would not run. Finally, I found and checked the float switch. Actually, I didn't even know what a float switch looks like. Fortunately, I found a YouTube video that showed what a float switch looks like. My float switch was actually fine. However, a small piece of plastic had gotten jammed under it. I removed the piece of plastic and now everything works. Really easy to resolve in my case.

It appears your dispenser wax switch has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Check the shutoff vale under the sink where your dishwasher water line is connected to ensure it is full open. Also, check for a kinked water line to the dishwasher.

Kenmore elite dishwasher stops mid cycle


I assume you mean it stopped in mid cycle and is now dead. If this is the case you will need to turn off the power to the dishwasher and remove the screws holding the front control panel There is a thermal fuse clipped to the front of the control panel Check it using an ohmmeter or continuity tester If it is open you will need to replace it with a kit containing the fuse and wire connectors Do not replace just the thermal fuse the problem will surely return. Also inspect the control board for burned areas.If the control board is burned you should replace the wiring harness with the control assembly

Check the following to address this issue


1. No water
Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve.

2. Not enough water
If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. This could be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (located under the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).

3. Clogged spay arms
There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. Make sure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray arm.

4. Water temperature is too low
To get the best results, the water has to be at 120 degrees Fahrenheit when entering the dishwasher.

5. Not enough soap
If you only fill one part of the soap cup, try adding soap to both parts.

6. Smoky film on dishes and glasses
This problem occurs due to excessive calcium build up inside the dishwasher. Try cleaning you dishwasher using a dishwasher cleaner.
