Kenmore Elite model #: 665.13153k701 and wont drain still after replacing the drain pump

A:

It seems to be so much easier when all you have to do is push the button once and the Kenmore dishwasher works properly. I know this has to be frustrating. I was not able to find any information on this specific issue, however an expert will further research and respond with the information. Thanks for your patience.

The dishwasher overall works well. The heating/rinsing/santizing.. etc. Its just the draining part is not doing its part. (No pun intended) I have the unit out of the cabinet to watch the draining process. While running it appears to be draining since looking at the line hose, small bubbles are going toward the garbage disposer. The drain line has it lop and then down to the garbage disposer. The gargabe disposer is higher than the P trap of the main drain. Not sure if I am over analysing my situtation when it could be a simple fix. Appreciate any help.

It is very frustrating when I can not get the dishwasher to drain. Does anyone know if there is a diagnostic mode/instructions on my Kenmore Elite model dishwasher (665.13153k701) to help me figure out what is wrong with the unit?

Thank you for your question.  I am sorry for the problem with your Kenmore 665.13153K701 dishwasher.  From the description you give I suspect the control is at fault.  If I understand the problem the dishwasher will not drain in a regular cycle but will drain if the Cancel/Drain keypad is pressed several times.  This sounds like more of a control board problem since the drain pump will work sometimes.  If the drain pump were bad or the hoses were clogged then the dishwasher would not drain at all.  You can reply below and confirm the problem for further assistance.

I have replaced the drain pump and control board and still wont drain during the regular cycle. However, it will drain if the Cancel/Drain keypad is pressed several times. During regular cycle, you could hear the water draining in the sink going through the garbage disposer. I'm getting ready to replace the booster pump next since the drain pump and control board have already been replaced and still same issue.

I went back and started from step 1 checking what could be causing the dishwasher to leave 1 inch of water in the bottom of the tub after the cycle has ran and not draining all the water out from the bottom of the tub before I replaced any other parts. The garbage disposer has been in placed and the dishwasher was working correctly before my issue started. Therefore, there was no need to check if the slugged was removed from the garbage disposer at the inlet since the garbage disposer is not a new installation. If you recently installed one, it would be recommended to check if this was removed. Therefore, removed the hose from the garbage disposer and disconnected it from the dishwasher and ran water through the hose. The hose was properly installed which is located at top of the sink area under the cabinet before going into the garbage disposer. This allows the water not to go back into the dishwasher per manufacturer specifications. Checked the inlet of the garbage disposer, it was not clogged. Placed hosed back onto garbage disposer and tighten the screw. Removed the kick panel from under the dishwater, removed the hose connected to the drain pump. This hose has a check valve right before the black elbow before the drain pump. (Using diagram Fill, drain and overfill... Item 16 from searspartsdirect dot com), Using a flat head screw driver to check the check value. Moving the screwdriver around several times on the check valve and placing the hose back onto the drain pump housing. Check to see if the check valve was stuck in the open or close position by starting a wash cycle by selecting the start button, no need to use any special options. After several minutes, select cancel/drain. It drained all the water from the bottom of the dishwater tub but leaving some water in the sump area to allow the seal not to dry out per manufacturer specifications. The check valve was not staying open long enough to allow all the water to drain.

Per manufacturer specifications should use 1 tablespoon of dishwasher detergent with a teaspoon of rinse aid such as Lemi Shine dish detergent in the wash cycle compartment and use Jet dry in the container for Jet dry to help eliminate hard water spots. Once a month, use dishwasher Magic or Lemi Shine machine cleaner to help prevent hard water spots, stains and film during the wash cycle, thus improving the performance and life of your dishwasher. The reason we mention this, during this whole process and checking and rechecking the draining, we had a ton of soap in the bottom of the dishwasher even though we did not add any during the testing of the draining issue and this is caused by using too much dishwasher detergent before our issue started. Morale of our story, don�t over think your situation as we did and start replacing parts after parts. We got to know our dishwasher more than we wanted but she is all rested but drained. LOL
