Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the dishwasher. Without a model number, I can only assume which dishwasher you have. The older units plug at the check valve for the drain. To check this area turn the power off to the unit and remove the lower access panel. The first image shows the drain hose connected to the check valve. I recommend that you shut off the breaker to the dishwasher and remove the bottom front access panel to access this end of the drain hose. Use a shallow pan to catch any residual water that will drain out of the dishwasher when you remove this hose. Remove the other end of the hose from the garbage disposal. Blow air through the drain hose to verify that it is clear. If you have an air gap installed, you will need to check the line between the check valve and the air gap and then the line between the air gap and the garbage disposal. The second image shows the check valve with the drain hose removed. Unscrew the check valve and remove it to check the flapper valve as shown in the third image. According to your details, you may have already conducted these checks in the proper manner. If not, I recommend that you recheck these issues. If you find no problems with the check valve and drain line, I recommend that you check the opening of the sump where the check valve screws in for a clog or restriction. If you need to access the sump area from inside the dishwasher, this link of a previous answer shows how to disassemble the pump: How do I access the drain impeller on a Kenmore model 665.16759791 dishwasher that wont drain? .

These tips may help you resolve this drain issue in the dishwasher. If you need more help, submit a model number, additional details and we will try to assist you further.

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 .

Thx for the help. I checked all your suggestions and that doesn't seem to be the problem. My model number is 665.13449k900. Sorry about not adding it before. I cannot get to the filter or whatever it's called to check for debris. I cannot see where it is attached to remove it so that I can check it.

I am sorry that did not work. I have found a video that shows how to take this dishwasher apart. I posted the link for it below. The filter assembly can be removed from the pump but cannot be taken apart. If it is plugged it has to be replaced. Please feel free to reply below if you need further assistance.

Thank you for your reply. I found water on my kitchen floor yesterday after I'd put it on for a Smart Wash. The cycle had finished. I opened the door to see the bottom full of water. When I then closed the door, more water poured out from under the washer. Husband took the sprayer arm off it's spindle to reveal the area underneath it, with the screws around the round thing (sorry don't know what to call it)......he wasn't able to get the screws out (or so he says). I'm thinking that there is something clogging it up, but with husband's attitude not sure I'll find out what exactly is wrong with it. If I had instructions on what to take out, look for, he might be more willing or in a better mood to do something as he's pretty quick to throw up his hands if he doesn't want to deal with anything (gaming addict). He wants me to just call a repairman. I think it's just stopped up somewhere, or corroded with soap/grease, etc. I'll show him your diagram when he comes home tonight, along with any instructions you might have. Thanx.

eve, Often times you need to grasp the cover with a pair of pliers to remove it. If the unit is not draining, I recommend to close the door and push the cancel drain button. When you push the button, the cancel drain light should come on and the drain motor should run. If the motor does run, I recommend disconnecting the drain hose from the sink drain. Then place the end of the hose in a bucket and push the drain button again. If the unit drains, the drain in the sink is plugged. If it does not drain, I recommend placing a pan under the drain hose at the pump. Then carefully remove the drain hose and see if the water drains. If the water drains out the hose id likely plugged. Please let me know what you find. I will be happy to assist you further if your husband is willing. Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark

HI- My Kenmore Dishwasher 665.1359 was not draining - left quite a bit of sitting water. My husband is traveling, so I have tried to resolve the issue with unhooking the water (drain) hose from dishwasher to disposal, blowing air through it etc. Still would not drain. THEN I probed the hard white plastic tube that you connect the drain hose to under the dishwasher and the water came rushing out, but so did a small black rubber disc. I ran a test cycle and the machine drained but there was a little water left in the tub. Do I need this black disk? Where does it go? If it's a critical part, how do I get a replacement and instructions as to where to put it, please? Thank you!!

Paul - Your dishwasher was manufactured by Whirlpool. I suspect that there is a partial blockage of non return valve, item 15 in the first link below. Whirlpool recommend renewing this valve when the symptoms you have occur. I have cleaned a few but have yet to renew one. To access this valve electrically isolate the machine (remove the fuse, trip the breaker) remove the lower access panels remove the end of the discharge hose opposite from the valve (standpipe, connection to drain pipe, etc), be prepared for some water to leak out. Then with a Wetvac suck the remaining water out of the machine by placing the end of the washer's discharge hose into the Wetvac suction hose and closing the gap between the two with your hand. This may take a little while but it is better than a mess on the floor and the ladies getting all upset! Should you not have access to a Wetvac just let it drain into a shallow pan, again it will take time and you will get more 'leakage' when you unscrew the valve from the pump body. When you have the valve out you can take it apart from the end that the hose fits on being very careful to note the order the parts come out. Then just clear the debris and reassemble it. To ensure you have reassembled it in the correct order you should be able to blow through it from the screwed end but not from the hose connection end. Any other questions please post them. Good Luck.

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the dishwasher. I recommend starting a cycle and let it fill. Once the dishwasher starts to wash push the cancel button. When the dishwasher starts to drain check the flow out of the drain hose. If the water just trickles out of the hose, I recommend cleaning the check valve. This is where we find it plug up. The first image shows the drain hose connected to the check valve. I recommend that you shut off the breaker to the dishwasher and remove the bottom front access panel to access this end of the drain hose. Use a shallow pan to catch any residual water that will drain out of the dishwasher when you remove this hose. Remove the other end of the hose from the garbage disposal. Blow air through the drain hose to verify that it is clear. If you have an air gap installed, you will need to check the line between the check valve and the air gap and then the line between the air gap and the garbage disposal.
