Question and Answers

Q:

I have a dishwasher model 46513322600. It is leaking water. I pulled the front panel and it looks like lit is coming from the inlet bezel or fan shroud. 46513322600

A:

I know that it can be very frustrating to have issues with your dishwasher. The inlet bezel has an o-ring that is most likely the problem. It can become warped or curled, which will allow the water to leak through. The image below will provide the directions on how to remove the bezel so you can check this. The this is part number 99003602, and you can order it from this link: Sears Parts Direct. If you don't feel comfortable doing this yourself, please click on this link to schedule service: Sears Home Services. Click on "Get Started" and follow the directions, click on the red "NEXT" button to continue. I hope this helps. Please feel free to let me know if you need further assistance.

Accessing the components in this dish drawer is not that easy unless you do it all of the time. I provided an illustrated procedure for access the components in the image below. Be sure that you read through the information carefully before proceeding. If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

If you attempt to access these areas, be sure that you shut off the circuit breaker to the dishwasher first.

The image below shows the drain path. You can access some of this path from inside the tub without removing the drawer. To access the drain pump, you will need to remove the upper drawer. If you remove the upper drawer, be sure that you note the direction that you turn the drawer over to access the bottom components (clockwise or counterclockwise). The drawer will need to be turned back over in the reverse direction when you reassemble the dishwasher to make sure that you do not twist any of the wires or hoses improperly.

These tips should help you access the drain system and check it for restrictions. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.

Lyle, thank you so much for your response. You seem to be an expert, so let me ask you: in your opinion is it more likely that I have a clog somewhere (we actually clean our dishes quite well BEFORE putting them in the dishwasher) or that I have a technical problem like a failed drain pump, or solenoid, or the like?

Check to see if you hear the drain pump running. If the drain pump is running, then you likely have a clog in the drain line or a problem with a check valve (flapper) that is in the drain system at the pump. You could also have a broken impeller on the drain pump. You will need to pull the drawer out and pull the drain pump off to check these issues. The image below shows the drain pump being checked for resistance. If you can pull the drawer out and carefully turn it over, you can remove the hose clamps and check the pump and the check valve. If the pump is not running, I recommend that you check the resistance of the pump as shown in the image provided below. If the pump is okay, then you either have a wiring failure or a control board failure that is preventing the pump from running. I hope that this additional information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

Hello Lyle, I have the same issue as Steve. No clogs anywhere so I checked the drain pump with my multimeter and my readings averaged 26. Could you please tell me the steps of what to check next.?

A:

For CMT_GIRL: Your details seem to indicate that you checked the resistance of the pump motor and measured around 26 ohms. This indicates that the pump motor is likely okay. Make sure that the pump is running in the drain portion of the cycle. I provided a manual and automatic diagnostic test in the first image below. I recommend that you use that test to check the pump and make sure that it is running properly. You can conduct the automatic test and check for error codes that are described in the second image. I provided the wiring diagrams for the dishwasher in the third and 4th images (based on model 465.13322600. Your model may be slightly different but you should be able to use this information to check the wiring to the components. You could have a number of different failures that will prevent the dishwasher from draining properly. A wiring failure, bad drain pump (broken impeller), or failed control board are some of the failures that could be causing this problem. I recommend that you check the issues described above and reply with additional details if you need more help.

Thank you Lyle, I'll run the automatic test and see what I get. Another issue has crept up. I put the top drawer back on the rails but the drawer no longer closes completely. I removed the drawer again and made sure nothing was blocking it and the hoses were not twisted. I set the drawer back onto the rails and pulled the rails forward until I heard them snap into place. Then I closed the drawer. But again it will not completely close. Is there a step I am missing? I took the bottom drawer off and put it back on without any issues.

A:

The hoses are probably getting jammed up when you are trying to replace the drawer. If you pulled the drawer out and turned it upside down to work on it, you need to turn the drawer back over the opposite way that you turned it over when you removed it. This will usually prevent the hoses from getting twisted and jamming up. This can be a frustrating problem to resolve once it happens. I recommend that you pull the drawer back out and try to carefully turn the drawer over to the original position to get it back in properly. If you still have trouble, reply with additional details and we will try to assist you further.

Well before I started disassembling anything it occurred to me to call Sears and see if I had purchased the extended warranty. Woo Hoo! I had! They sent a repairman out and he said it was indeed clogged. At least it didn't cost me any additional money for the service call and I didn't have to get off the sofa.
