Question and Answers

Q:

No water to spray arms. 66517539202 Kenmore Undercounter dishwasher

A:

Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect. I will be more than happy to assist you with your Kenmore dishwasher.

From the information you have provided above, I can understand the frustration of having your dishwasher malfunction, after researching model number 665.17539202. 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 or poor wash pump performance

I hope you found this information useful. Again thank you for choosing Sears, we appreciate your business, have a great day.

*Safety disclaimer before you try and repair the unit make sure the power supply is disconnected. There may be sharp parts to the unit that can cause injury to you if not careful. If you don’t not feel comfortable checking this yourself you can request a technician by visiting www.SearsHomeService.com*

A:

That filter does not normally need to be cleaned. If the dishwasher is working properly and cleaning the dishes, I do not recommend that try to clean that filter at this time. One cause of the orange film could be tomato sauce or tomato based food residue. You can normally clean that type of problem by running an empty cycle in the dishwasher with Tang or a similar powdered citrus drink mix added. You can also clean the dishwasher using Dishwasher Magic or Affresh for Dishwashers. Those products may also clean residue from tomato based food residue. The orange film may also be a type of mildew. Those cleaners described above should help you eliminate that type of problem. Leaving the door cracked open between cycles will also help if you had a mildew problem in the dishwasher.

If you are having problems with spray pressure, you can access the filter and the chopper blade area of the sump as shown in the images below. Your dishwasher will look slightly different than the one shown in those images but the basic access procedure is the same. You will probably find screws that attach the feed tube to the tub instead of those metal clips. Remove those screws to free up that feed tube and remove the lower spray arm. You may find debris or a foreign object in that sump area that is causing problems.

I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

Thanks for your reply. The orange film is definitely not tomato as I always completely rinse my dishes. Also this orange film develops during every use of the dishwasher. It accumulates in the metal tracks of the racks, for example. There is also gray sludge that has collected in the area of the inner water tube/sump area if I have it named correctly. I can only access it by sticking one finger in the grooves; inside is wet and sticky stuff that is not rinsing out of the area after each wash. The orange film coats itself underneath most of the moving parts and sometimes comes off in flat sheets. It really seems that the soap is not dissolving and I suspect that this is leading to the orange film and gray sludge sticking to various parts of the dishwasher. We will take apart the lower areas as described because I believe those areas need to be well cleaned. Thanks.

A:

The cycle times in the display are estimated times. The length/times will vary depending on the cycle selected, soil level, water temperature and options selected. If the water temperature is 120 degrees minimum as it enters the tub, and you select Smart wash with a light soil level and a partial load, the minimum cycle time is 65 minutes. Some cycles could run as long as 98 minutes or longer depending on incoming water temperature entering the tub and soil levels. I added an image below with the estimated cycle times taken directly from your User's manual.

Both normal and smart wash cycles will run about 95 minutes. Both cycles will have to heat the water up to 140 degrees. Does your hot water cool down in the pipes when the hot water is not running? You should have a minimum of 120 degree water entering the dishwasher every time or it will cause longer run times. Check your water temperature at the sink when you first turn it on. You will likely find it cold for a short time. Run the hot water at the sink first then start the dishwasher and see how it takes to complete the wash and rinse cycles. Also, are you selecting any options like Hi-temp or Sani Rinse? These options will also cause the dishwasher to run longer because it has to heat the water up to 145 degree or 160 degree if Sani rinse is selected. It's probably water temperature related causing your dishwasher to run longer.

I also provided you with a link containing testing information for the heating element, that may be causing the issue. For further assistance, respond with more detail. I hope this helps.
