Its a kenmore 665.17032403

The dishwasher is not cleaning the upper level correctly. Door slime is left when opening the door. A repair man came out and cleaned some food out of it last year and I cant remember where he opened it up to get it. I took the arm and the tube out to make sure not food was caught in the tube that feeds the upper spray all looks clean.I am wondering if I need to get a alan wrench and open up the motor or what. Thanks

    yep. take the bottom blade off the dishwasher and make sure no food is in the tube that feeds the top. take the top of the food grinder off and clean the food out of it. It is like 3or 4 alan fittings. runn a half gallon of white vinager through it and its good as new....

Detergent not dissolving therefore some items not clean.

Jerry had two good First Checks with the water level and the temperature. Turn on the dishwasher and open the door after it completes filling and check the level and temperature.

A third possibility if the level and temperature are correct is that your dishwasher is not spraying enough water around. This could be due to a faulty pump, but more often I see a reduced spray from a clogged filter on the input to the pump.

You can check the amount of spray by waiting until it starts the wash cycle and open the door quickly. Water should be pouring off the upper rack and you should either have water come out of the door or have it be very close to spraying out.

Some dishwasher models have an easily accessible filter, others take some tools to get down to it.

What could be causing the door latch to release late in the wash cycle of my Kenmore Ultra dishwasher?

The door spring tension might be causing the door latch to become disengaged. Check the level of the dishwasher and also adjust door spring tension. Will need model number to provide more details.

The upper shelf of my 17379 dishwasher is not getting water.

check your float switch. Open the door and look on the left or right side, It may look juke a small dome pull that out and clean it. Food particals get stuck on the stem and starts the motor befor it get enough water in the machine to clean the dishes and make enough pressure to get to the top shelf

Buzzing in upper left hand corner of door on Asko D1776. When door is fully open it stops but when door is up it continues and you can feel warmth in the uopper left hand corner.


I think what you are describing is the "turbo fan" assembly. This device is used to remove the condensation to insure dishes are dry at the end of a cycle. It actually vent`s out the bottom left side via a plastic housing but the vent motor assembly is located inside the door at the upper left corner.

If it ( the fan) continues to run or "hums" because it`s trying to run, even when the dishwasher is idle or no program has been selected, it is likely a problem within` the control board unfortunately. This is usually caused by the vent assembly getting clogged up so it cannot open correctly and the "wax motor" ( the small device which open`s and closes the vent ) burns up and short`s out the control board.
If you`re capable, you can visually inspect the control and look for burnt up path ways on the printed circuit side ( green side with lot`s of solder joints ).
If so you`ll need to replace the control as well as the fan assembly, or clean the assembly really well as most asko control`s come with a new "wax motor"...or used to where I live. Unfortunately those control`s retail for about $400 and up, and most now are of the "rebuilt/refurbished" kind. The part number should be ( if the model number is correct ) # 8801201.

Hope this help`s move you forward. Let me know either way and I`ll try to assist you further.

Thank`s for visiting "fixya" today for your repair solution`s and good luck moving forward.

My new Kenmore Elite panel ready dishwasher leaves wet

You need only enough space so the door does not rub when opened. If the unit is too far back under the cabinet the countertop (if wood) can be damaged by the exhausting moisture. The dry feature on the newer models is just as you describe. The moisture from the hotter dishes evaporates and is condensed on the cooler walls and door of the wash tub. Dry dishes wet tub is normal.

Kenmore dishwasher. The upper rack is not getting clean. Even very light residue remains. And, detergent is left in door at end of cycle. The bottom is filling up, so I don't think it's the intake valve....

I find it odd that the dishwasher is filling with cold water if the water is hot at the sink. It sounds like the dishwasher is connected to the cold water line rather than the hot. Check under your sink; if you've got standard plumbing, the dishwasher supply line should be connected to the left water pipe.
Regardless, the water temperature doesn't fully explain the symptoms, especially the detergent left in the door (assuming you're using fresh detergent and it's not caking in the door prior to washing).
I would check the blades again. Even thought they may appear clean, there may be debris in them that get forced into the openings during operation, but fall away from the openings when the water flow stops. Remove the blades, run water into them, then invert them to drain while rocking back and forth. If there's crud in them, you may need to do this several times.
