Question about Kenmore 14249 Dishwasher
Kenmore 18in built-in model 587-14249990. Notes: the timer tests fine at all steps and the wiring & contacts to motor relay & motor (cant see actual motor contacts as wires go inside housing) look all good. I also fully disassembled lower arm unit & water gears etc down to just the motor shaft and all were clear & the motor shaft turns freely either way.
BUT the problem is- the dishwasher starts & runs fine (as long as its cool) from anywhere in the cycles I want, but after a few minutes in wash or drain, I notice a "hot" smell from motor/relay area when the motor is running. The next request of the cycle (be it wash or drain), the motor won't kick back on. If I stop the cycle & let the motor/relay(?) cool, then re-start in same place, the motor does whatever is next just fine until it heats up again. I hope its the motor relay & not the motor. Any ideas?? Thanks! Deb
Some Kenmore DW have a check valve attached to the sump that may have a blockage. Remove toe panel, look for a long, white, plastic fitting attached the front, right side of the sump. Remove the drain hose from the valve. Unscrew the valve from the sump and inspect for debris inside the valve.

Drain line from the motor out has a crack or split in it! Sounds simple and an easy repair.

It sould be a simple repair!
If the appliance is 10 years old or more you may not be advisable to put good money into bad! New applinces are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
You need a hands on tech for this repair!

Look inside of the dishwasher to be sure that the tubes leading to the spray arms are not disconnected. If those tubes are in place, then the problem is with the main motor/pump in the base of the unit. That Kenmore part is about $150.00 plus labor. That being said, it may be time to consider a new dishwasher UNLESS your dishwasher is less than five years old because there is a five year warranty on the motor/pump. If it is under warranty, call sears repair and they should repair it at no cost to you.

remove the kick panel below the door, place a pan, etc under where the drain hose connects to the drain extension tube, and slide the clamp back some so you can slide the hose off of the extension tube (white plastic tube) and drain any excess fluid into the aforementioned pan, etc., then unscrew the extension tube and check for plugs, or restrictions.
the sump may also be pluged beneath the strainer assembly, and that requires removing the lower spray arm, the water tube that runs up the inside back of the unit, and the upper parts of the assembly below them to access the drain/pump sump area.
last but not least the impeller is jamed and might be able to be freed by removing whatever has lodged within there..
ya never know...
best of luck,
