A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

When you rotate the timer to the beginning of the cycle, do not pass the place where it calls for water. Latch the door and then slowly rotate the timer knob until you hear the motor start and then do not rotate the timer knob any further or you could cause the timer to skip the fill the cycle. Let the timer advance into the fill cycle on its own.

Based on the model number submitted your dishwasher was manufactured in 1987. If the dishwasher is not getting or filling with enough water it's not going to spray any water up and through the spray arms. Open the door and manually add about 1/2 gallon and then shut and latch the door and then listen to the pump action. If it sounds like its washing, open the door rapidly and you should also see water spraying. If it's spraying/pumping water through the spray arms then the most likely failure is a restricted water inlet valve or inadequate water supply to the water inlet valve.

Your model dishwasher does not have any filters. The only filter it has is the water inlet filter screen located inside the water inlet valve.

To remove the lower spray arm, remove the spray arm nut located at the top center of the lower spray arm.

To remove the middle spray arm, remove the bolt from the top center of the middle spray arm.

To remove the upper spray arm, remove the screw located at the bottom center.

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 .

The image below contains the installation requirements for all standard size dishwashers such as the model you asked about.

Q:

How do I uninstall my Kenmore dishwasher model 587.1641590 from underneath the counter top?

A:

To uninstall your dishwasher first turn the power off at the breaker box.

Then open the door and look up and you will see two screws going through the mounting brackets into the counter top.

Remove both screws. If you have a granite counter top then the brackets and screws would be located on the side of the dishwasher.

Next under the sink will be a shut off for the water supply to the dishwasher. Turn the spigot all the way off.

Next you will remove the lower access panel. See the image below for how to do this.

With the access panel removed and the water shut off then disconnect the water line from the water valve.

With the access panel off you will see the electrical connection box. See image below for a picture of this.

Disconnect the electrical line.

Disconnect the drain hose from under the sink.

Lift up on the dishwasher to clear the floor tiles and pull it forward. You will have to pull the drain hose though to free it as you pull the dishwasher forward but the dishwasher should come out of the hole.
