Question and Answers

Q:

Kenmore dishwasher leave dishes wet

A:

Thank you for your question.  I am sorry for the problem with your Kenmore 665.17022401 Dishwasher.   If the dishwasher does not heat the water usually you see the Clean light blinking at some point to indicate the water heating error.   A simple test would be to selct the Pots and Pans cycle with the Hi Temp Wash and Sani Rinse options selected.  At the end of the cycle there should be steam rolling out when the door is open and the dishes should be almost to hot to pick up.  If there is a heating problem then the dishwasher may stall in the middle of the cycle.   If there is a problem with the dispenser then it will need to be replaced.  There are no servicable parts on the 8558129 Detergent Dispenser.   You can remove the front panel to access the dispenser.  There is also a diagnostic test that can be entered by prssing Heated Dry , Normal, Heated Dry, Normal.    The instructions are in the image below.  Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Q:

How do I check the water pressure?

A:

The only correct way of checking water pressure is with a pressure gauge, but you also need volume. You can also take the water supply line off at the dishwasher inlet valve and place the water line in a bucket and turn the water on fully. The water supply flow rate should fill a 2 quart container in 27 seconds.

The water supply requirements are;

  1. A hot water line with 20-120 psi water pressure.
  2. Minimum of 120 degree water at the dishwasher.

The first fill cycle should put about 1.8 gallons in, and all other fills will be 1.7 gallons.

The dishwasher should have enough water after filling to cover the entire bottom of the tub and barely touching the safety float. When the dishwasher is washing, you should hear a continuous washing action and not sound like it is pumping and not make a cavitation sound. If it appears to sound like the pump is cavitating, open the door and manually add about 1 quart of water and then listen how it sounds when washing. If it quits cavitating, the likely failure is a restricted water inlet valve on the dishwasher.

Also make sure that water is not siphoning out of the dishwasher. Start the dishwasher and let it fill with water and start washing. Press the Cancel/Drain button and let it drain for 5-10 seconds and then open the door and watch the water level in the bottom of the tub. If the water level continues to fall, then you have a siphoning issue. Check the drain hose routing, it should not be connected straight to the floor. There is also a drain loop that should be attached to the left side of the tub too. If the loop is not there it can cause water to siphon out.

Joey, is there a sensor that would keep the water solenoid from opening at all? Nothing at all is happening. The lights light up when you press them and then they go out after about a minute.

Hi lwmcguir, sorry no one has got back to you about your question.

If the dishwashing is not receiving any water then you will need to replace the water inlet valve.

If you have further questions please let me know.

A:

Henry, thank you. We emptied the washer and checked for problems with element. As it wound up the door was not latching well. We never had to run the bipass code. Closed the door and the dishwasher just picked up where it left off. You are my hero. Not a good time of year to have your dishwasher break. Thanks again. P.S. It was a blast watching my husband do the dishes. LOL

A:

I know that it can be very difficult to have issues with your dishwasher. The clean light flashing indicates that the control of the dishwasher detects a problem in the water heating circuit. This is normally caused by a problem with the heating element. It can also be caused by several other problems such as low water fill or a door switch problem. This fault can sometimes be displayed when there is no major component problem. Check the heating element in the bottom of the tub for obvious signs of damage or failure. If the heating element looks okay, you can reset this fault by pressing the following key sequence within 5 seconds: HEATED DRY - NORMAL WASH - HEATED DRY - NORMAL WASH. After pressing these keys, all of the console lights will turn off briefly and then the dishwasher will begin a short diagnostic cycle. I recommend canceling this cycle. The control should be ready to use. If the fault code returns, I recommend scheduling service. If you would like to, just click on this link: Sears Home Services . I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
