help! my kenmore ultra wash quietguard standard Dishwasher won't drain! I can't find the manual and can't figure out where the drain is. This dishwasher is only about 6 months old.
Make: kenmoreModel: 665.13579k700
I've tried the drain and cancel button on the front, as well as feeling everywhere inside for the drain opening to check for a clog..
Thanks for the question.
Does the motor go but wont drain the water out.
yes, it sounds like the motor turns on, but nothing happens to drain
Take the bottom panel off you will see a white drain funnel that the drain hose connects to , remove the hose and unscrew the part and clean it out ., get a towel you will get water.
What do you mean by the bottom panel? The floor of the machine? or is there another panel beneath the door? Because there's an inch or so of water in there, it's hard to see the layout of the bottom.
At the very bottom of the d/w take the front panel off and you better bail the water out first before you remove the drain hose.
ok, thanks, XXXXX XXXXX I have taken the panel off, got the drain hose off & drained the water. There was no funnel shaped thing - just an opening into the motor mechanism with what appeared to be housing a plastic paddle type thing - perhaps this spins when it's working? Anyway, I reconnected it, ran a quick rinse cycle, and again it didn't drain... any other ideas?
Heres the complete breakdown , if its clear the pump could be burnt out.you can take it out and connect 120 volts to it to see if its burnt out.
thanks so much! I really appreciate all your help. God Bless!
Thanks and God Bless as well.
