Question about Kenmore Dishwashers
Dishwasher filled and began to run. Made a whining noise and bottom spray arm didn't rotate. Took lower assembly apart and found a couple of pistachio shells. I'm guessing that will solve the problem ... but now need to re-assemble. Two small white plastic balls (maybe 1/2 inch diameter, were floating in the water when I took the filter assembly out. I suspect these are some kind of plug, and need to go in a certain place, but because the dishwasher had filled, they were just floating around, and I didn't see exactly where they came from. Help.

Sounds like you may have put it together wrong. I would just take the arm back off and make sure that it all fits together right. A little tip for you too. Dishwashers will clog up all the time with water deposits and food gunk. There are all those expensive cleaners out on the market but the best and cheapest way to clean them is with white vinegar. Simply pour it into the dishwasher when it is empty and run it on the pots and pans setting on hot. Always make sure to pre heat your water too by running the sink till it starts steaming. This will make it easier for your dishwasher to heat the water. If you don't, then when you turn on the dishwasher it starts to fill with cold water and has to heat it on its own. Run the vinegar though through it at least once a month or so and it will extend the life of the dishwasher. Hope this helps. Just try taking that arm back off though and putting it back together making sure everything is fitting properly. If you have any other questions feel free to ask me. Good luck.
