Question and Answers


My kenmore dishwasher model # 66513793K601 circulates soapy water when none was put in. 66513793K601


Thank You for choosing Sears and being a valued member. It is unfortunate to hear that you are having issues with your dishwasher and I do understand your frustration. Glad to help out. I'm looking at your model number 66513793K601 and from your description I would suspect that this is an issue with the detergent being used. I recommend running a cycle with a cleaner without dishes to try and clean and rinse out the tub and spray arms completely and try to determine if the soap is the problem. Here is a link that will help with the leaking problem. I do not believe the problems are associated. Just click the blue link above to be taken to the page. I trust this information will help you.


Thank you for choosing Sears

Hello Mike. I am sorry to hear about this problem that you are having with your Kenmore Dishwasher Model 665.13793K601


Since the buzzing is occurring constantly. it could be caused by the dispenser solenoid. 


Shut off the house circuit breaker for the dishwasher to completely disconnect electrical power. Leave the breaker off for 5 minutes. Reset the breaker to restore electrical power and see if the buzzing noise continues. If it does, then you may need to replace the electronic control board in the console. Shut off the house circuit breaker before accessing and replacing internal components.


If you need more help, reply with additional details.
