Kenmore Dishwasher won't drain 66517792992

Q:

A:

Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com and being a valued member. It is unfortunate to hear that you are having issues with your dishwasher and I do understand your frustration. Glad to help out. I'm looking at your model number 66517792992 and failure of the detergent dispenser door to open could be caused by several different problems. The springs on the door could be broken, you could have a failed latch mechanism on the dispenser, a wiring failure or a failed control board could be preventing voltage from reaching the actuator assembly or you could have a failed actuator. First, check to see if the dispenser door snaps open if the latch is manually activated. If not, then the dispenser assembly would need to be replaced to fix this problem. I recommend calling a service technician to repair this type of problem. 
 
If the spring is good, look for a build up of detergent around the latch that could be interfering with it. Clean this area if necessary. 
 
Accessing the control board and actuator assembly requires the front panel of the dishwasher to be removed after shutting off the breaker to disconnect electrical power. I recommend that a technician conduct this type of procedure. If you have further questions please resubmit your question for further information. I hope this information helps you.
 
Thank you for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com.

The holidays are no time to be having dishwasher problems. When a dishwasher stops filling the first thing I suggest you check is the float. See the 2nd image below. The float sometimes gets caught and pulled out of position. If the float is not in the standpipe then the dishwasher can not fill. Another possibility is the water supply manifold mounted to the sink faucet. You can squeeze the hose at the back of the dishwasher to see if there is any water pressure. The most likely cause of the no fill problem would be the water valve. You can access the valve by removing the lower access panel. The valve can be checked with a meter. If the water valve is needed it can be obtained from the following link: Water valve . I hope this helps. You can reply with any additional details for further assistance.
