SOURCE: the soap isn't coming out of the soap dispenser

I had the same problem once. Make sure nothing is stacked in front of the soap dispenser when you close the door. Slowly close the door and follow the soap dispenser to make sure it has enough clearance to open.
Let me know how it goes.
Regards,

SOURCE: during dishwasher cycle soap dispenser won't open

Remove the door inner panel and check the dispenser door solenoid for free movement along with the latch mechanism. Water can enter through a leaking seal and corrode the interior of the solenoid causing sluggish or non-functioning of the latch. Change the solenoid if it seems sticky and can't be fixed by cleaning the bore and plunger (don't apply oil as it will gum up the operation after a while).

Some water is leaking under the dishwasher and on the kitchen floor during the end of the wash cycle.


Does it leak during pump-out only?
If so , must be drain hose .To see everything,remove kick plate to isolate leak. Check hose connections. Fill and drain and observe.Or run a whole cycle with kick plate off to find leak.





Good luck

The dishwasher will not drain.


Check your main drain system. Remove the drain hose from that end and discharge them in a bucket. Try a new wash an if the m/c drain system is ok, it will discharge water in the bucket.

Check the house main drain for clogging at the hose connecting end.

Dishwasher does not fill


Hi,
Double check that your water supply line is not kinked.
This sounds like a bad fill valve. If you have hard water and most everyone does after a few years the valve will quit working properly and will fail in one of 2 ways a slow or no fill or it will not shut off completely.
I hope this helps if I can help with anything else please let me know.

Kenmore dishwasher, water not going through the jets


when you hear the motor running during the wash cycle, check to see if the washer is actually draining instead of washing. this would indicate a stuck open drain valve. (the same motor/pump that washes the dishes, also drains the unit)

Dishwasher was making whirliing noise during wash, now no wash, only fill and drain


there is a #10 torx screw holding that cover down.do not drill it out. after you take it off you can tell if the chopper is broken.be careful for broken glass.

DIshwasher doesn't drain or fill


Hello annie8866,
First off.. unplug power and then reapply power to it for a little while to see if a power reset will put it back in the proper sequence.. next, check inside the base for a drain inlet and a filter/screen and clean anything you see out of it.. Then try cycling it without dishes to see if it will run thru a cycle and drain properly.. Its ok to add a cup or two of white vinegar during the wash process to remove byproducts of the wash from the inner components.. Make sure the drain hose is not clogged or kinked up.. Try these things and get back to me if it is still misbehaving..

Kenmore dishwasher 58715142400 fills but doesn't wash


Motor has gone out..just like mine...Make sure u have voltage going to the motor, (disconnect the plug from the motor) and use an electric meter to make sure you have voltage going to the motor. If so the motor has either gone out or has been blocked by something! If no noise except clicking then motor has gone out. Looking at about $150 for motor.
