I would say to start with checking the water line I also recommend that you check the inlet water screen on the inlet water valve. (NOTE: Be sure to shut off the breaker to disconnect electrical power and shut off the water supply before accessing this part.) This is the water valve that the inlet water line connects to. You will need to remove the elbow fitting to access the inlet water valve screen.If the screen is okay, you could have a clog in the inlet water valve or the inlet water assembly that runs from the inlet water valve to the side of the dishwasher tub where water enters the tub.

If these components are all okay, start a cycle and allow the dishwasher to fill. Crack the door as soon as the dishwasher stops filling and before the pump motor starts. Observe the water level inside the the tub of the dishwasher. The water should be within 1/4" to just touching the bottom of the heater element inside the tub. If the water level in the tub is correct, then the dishwasher is filling properly. Let the dishwasher sit for a couple of minutes to see if water siphon out of the tub through the drain line. If it does, then you likely have an installation problem with the drain line.

All of the water coming to the upper spray arm comes through the feed tube. If the feed tube is blocked or the probe flapper is hung open, water will not flow properly to the upper spray arm. Be sure that when you push in the upper rack the manifold probe is in position in the feed tube. Try adding more water in the tub to see if the upper spray arm starts rotating. Other possibilities; low water charge, cracked spray arm & poor wash pump performance.

This is exactly what is happening to ours....I will also try these suggestions the arms are clear and I have run CLR through to clear it of any calcium build up, we live in the country with city water however it is hard water and our heat coil has a build up on it that we remove periodically. Thanks I will let you know

A:

It's getting water fine-do the spray arms get their pressure from the water inlet or from the pump? I took the accumulator off and there's all kinds of debris floating around- cherry pits, plastic seal pieces (like from an unopened plastic food container), bar code lables etc. This (minus the pits) is the same kind of stuff that was in the spray arms. Could this be an indication that debris is somehow getting to the pump and clogging it?

From the description you give I suggest you first get into the sump and check for obstructions or items that look out of place such as bones, metal tabs or twist ties.

The image below will help you with this.

You can reply with any additional details or questions for further assistance.

Q:

Why is my Kenmore dishwasher not draining all the water out?

A:

Previous answer: If the drain installation is good I would recommend checking the drain pump. Other possibilities; Obstruction in the pump/motor assembly or bad drain motor.

The date code of your dishwasher is imbedded in the serial number. The model number indicates that this unit started Mfg. in 2002. Please see the provided images for the date code format & the warranty information you requested. I would recommend calling Sears to service your dishwasher if the house drain checks good.

thanks for your response. the problem was food blockage where the drain hose connects to the plumbing under the sink. apparently the emancerator does not break down the food materials as well as one would think. it was a very simple fix...forced the blockage through using a screwdriver.
