SOURCE: KENMORE DISHWASHER WATER DOESN'T SPRAY.

If there's no water entering your dishwasher, check these:

Water-inlet valve
Float switch
Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely
replace it. It's usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the device
with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two
wires attached to it.

Float switch
The float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below the dishwasher "floor."
Above the switch, on the inside of the dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills
the dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets caught or trapped in the raised
position, the water can't enter the dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it.

SOURCE: Kenmore 665.1736 fills with water but does not spray

Take thre drain hose off from disposal. Pour hot water down the hose until full. Cover end with hand. Press cancel/drain while holding hand over hose - over bucket. That may unstick checkvalve balls and or fix air lock. I have to do that every 6 months or so. Started happening 1 month out of warranty. Go figure. Not a fix - just a work-around...

SOURCE: Kenmore elite dishwasher 665 purchased in 2001

On our stainless tub kenmore elite diswasher model # 66515912001 (665.15912001), we removed the lower spray arm by turning the nut (try clockwise and counter clockwise) and lifting it off the lower unit.

Then, we turned the attached water port (that feeds the upper arm) to the right. It felt like it was going to break, but didn't !!!

Next, we removed the lower starfish looking thing on which the screen is attached by four torx head screws. Here we found much hardened yellow "stuff" that came off with hot water, a knife and shop vac. By my estimate, the screen was 60% blocked.

We also removed the upper tray so as to remove the upper arm. Banged it against the sink a few times to loosen the same caked on yellow "stuff" from inside it. Here we noticed many of the water outlet holes were completly clogged.

We also replaced our heating element because it was clearly flaking away. This required the dishwasher to have it's power shut off, water supply disconnected and pulled out. In the end, very easy to replace if you're mechanically inclined (I am very).

After a test run, my wife said: "haven't seen water dripping from the top tray in years..."

Total time investment for the above was about 3 - 4 hours.

Kenmore dishwasher: Pre-wash cycle is too short: fills with water, runs for only one second, and then drains. The rest of the cycle is fine; the dishes get clean.

Pre-wash may be compromised and a new power circuit board may be needed.
My advice: As long as the other cycles are accurate and work as usual; Pre-wash in your sink (spray off waste material) before you place the dishes in the washer and commence cleaning. Its best to wash off food and other material before washing in the machine to avoid clogging the drains and pump.

Dishes come out dirty like trap needs tobe cleaned kenmore 565

Hi



If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound.

If it seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve. Now, check if dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after the cycle is complete. Try cleaning the spray arm with a soft brush. The water temperature plays a major role in cleaning of dishes. The temp should be between 125 and 150 F for dishwasher to clean the dishes.


Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump.

My dishwasher fills with water and then 45 second to a minute when the dishwasher is in the washing cycle the sprayer stops spray or washing the dishes and it seem that the water has drained out of washer...

Have you confirmed the water has drained out, or is the water just too cold, so the heater coil is on to get water temp up. What happens if you just leave it alone? Does it continue through the cycle?

Dishwasher fills with water but does nothing else.

If your dishwasher drains and fills as it should and cycles normally, there is a problem with the spray arm assembly or recirculation pump. Esure that the spray arm is not clogged. Manually free up moving parts if the assembly can be removed.

It fills, but doesn't kick in to spray/wash

Main pump not running?...then it will either be the program controller or the main pump itself.....I would guess the pump first.
