Question and Answers

Q:

My diswasher doesnt drain after washing.

A:

It may well be that your control panel is locked.... If you could send us your model number it would be very helpful. Because I don't have the model number to your dishwasher, I have provided a link below that will bring up a page full of different links you can review. One of these should apply to the unit you have. We will be looking forward to you sending us your model number. I hope this page of links is helpful and have a pleasant morning.

The fault displays on a dishwasher can be confusing. The symptoms sound like the child safety lock is on. It does allow the door to be opened but no keys to work. Use the image below to release this safety control. If the problem persists, you may have a stuck or shorted keypad.

For additional help, please respond with the complete model number. It will begin with 665. and have additional digits following. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Actually having a simular problem except I have a Kenmore Elite dishwater Mod.# 66516273402. What is happening with my washer is that unit goes through its wash and dry cycle and the within a matter of hours the bottom of the tub is filled with water. How do I fix this problem? Also the soap dispenser within 2 washes empty's out all the rinse spot remover. What is causing that problem? Thanks

Hi David. If you dishwasher is filling with clean water while in the off position there is a leaking water inlet valve. Drain the water out and turn the water off under the sink. If the dishwasher does not fill with water then the water inlet valve has failed and will need to be replaced. That is part # 8531671 and can be ordered at the Sears Parts Direct link below. See key #3 in the second image below. Also replace #4 gasket. If the water coming into the dishwasher is dirty water then you have a drain issue, most commonly the drain hose has dropped below the water level of the sink it drains into. As to the rinse agent, I recommend fixing the fill issue first. See if this also stops the rinse aid problem. If not, then run a diagnostics cycle to pin point the problem. Use the diagnostic image below. The rinse aid dispenser assembly may also need to be replaced. Let me know if this helps.

Sorry to get back so late. However it is clean water and I took your suggestion and turned off the water supply directly to the dishwasher but the water filled the bottom of the tub anyway. Not sure where to proceed.

Thank you for the reply David. If the water supply was turned off and the water drained out of the tub, there may be some water left in the line but not much. I would turn off again, open the sink faucet and drain. If the problem still continues with clean water, then the main shut off valve is not closing and may require a plumber. Regardless, the dishwasher inlet valve is still malfunctioning and will need to be replaced. Let me know how another check works.
