Kenmore Ultra Wash 665.1374 not draining

We just remodeled our kitchen and moved the dishwasher. We followed the instruction manual exactly, but the first time we ran it we stupidly forgot to turn on the water supply valve. Duh! It went through a complete cycle. After that, it seems to work fine, except that it doesn't completely drain all the water. If I press the "cancel drain" button 3 times, the dishwasher empties. The knock-out plug is out and I've tried to reposition the drain hose, which seemed to help a little. Are these two things related or is it not draining because of something else? Many, many thanks in advance.

    Nevermind... we figured it out. We just had to recalibrate the wash cycle since the first wash had no water. It's working fine now. Thanks anyway!

Hi Claire,
Are you using rinse aid?
that may help with the film.you may also have stuff down in the trap causing the water to drain slow.

Not draining may either need new drain motor. or something is blocking the drain pipe.

Spots on dishes means you are using to much detergent or the wrong kind of detergent.

Your owners manuel should tell you what type to use.

SOURCE: kenmore dishwasher has stopped draining.

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,
ttfn

I have a Kenmore Elite Ultra Wash Dishwasher 665.1319 and it won't get rid of the water it used completely


check the positioning of the waste water hose from the pump
it could be kinked from the re-installation, too high to drain or other re-modelling problems

Kenmore Ultra Wash III Dishwasher will not drain properly


From the sound of things, your dishwasher drains faster than your sink drain ( via the garbage disposal) can drain it off.. You may have a problem with the way your sink drain/trap is vented and there is too much back pressure to drain down quickly.. When you run water from your sink, does it take a long time to drain down or if you fill your sink up and drain it, does it drain slowly ? That may be your problem.. Hope that helps.

You have a restricted drain in your sink, not the dishwasher. Water is unable to go down drain fast enough and is backing up.
