Question and Answers

Q:

Why won't my Kenmore dishwasher let any water into the unit?

A:

Based on your symptom there is likely something stuck up under the safety float preventing the water inlet valve from opening. Open the door and check and see if the float dome located in the front right corner will move up and down freely. If there is something stuck under the float keeping it from sliding all the way down the dishwasher will not fill with water. Make sure it is all the way down and then start the dishwasher and wait to see if fills.

If continues to not fill, the failure could be one of the following:

  • Restriction in the water supply
  • Water inlet valve
  • Safety float switch
  • Timer

Q:

Why won't my Kenmore dishwasher model # 6651580590 let any water into the unit?

A:

The first thing I recommend you check is the float assembly. Follow these instructions to inspect the float assembly.

  1. Open the dishwasher door and remove the lower dishrack.
  2. Remove the cover over the float assembly (If dishwasher has one). A float's cover is stationary - it does not move up and down. It will either snap in place, or be held in place with a screw.
  3. Lift the float and let it drop several times. Its movement should be entirely unrestricted.
  4. Remove the float.
  5. Looking for any obstruction that may be hindering its movement. Floats usually snap into place. However, if you are unable to remove yours just by pulling on it, it may be connected to the float switch. If this is the case, you will need to disconnect it to look for debris.

If you are unable to find any debris that is blocking the float switch, the float switch may be at fault. Try testing that component.

If you have found any debris under your float assembly, be sure to clean it out. Replace the float assembly. Then replace the float cover, if you removed one. Replace the lower dishrack and shut the door. Restore power to your dishwasher and run it through a cycle to test it.

If your dishwasher still isn't filling after checking the float assembly, you could have a faulty:

  • Float switch
  • Water inlet valve
  • Door switch
  • Drain valve and solenoid
