Question about Kenmore 24 in. 15079 Built-in Dishwasher
A friend loaded our dishwasher a few days ago and covered the funnel on the top rack. I did not notice and ran the dishwasher on the normal wash cycle. I do not know if that has anything to do with our problem, but since then the dishwasher simply does not wash. I have tried to run it several times since then and it seems that the only thing not happening is that the washer arms never kick on. I never hear that part of the cycle. I hear the water filling and when opening the door to check, there is water. The water is heating up because it is stifling hot when I open the door to check. Timing wise, it seems to go through all the cycles and finishes with the green clean light, but upon opening the door at the end you can tell it has not been cleaned because there is still all the dishwashing liquid and dishes are dirty. I have since emptied and run it empty and still no luck. Please advise! J Claydon
What your friend did would not affect the appliance. by the sound of it the main circulating pump or pump capacitor is faulty. capacitor is a cheap part but the pump will be expensive. only way to find out is to dive in and look. is pump motor is faulty then this will be faily obvious - burnt winding. if no apparant motor damage try substituting the motor capacitor - this is a cheap part
