Question and Answers

Q:

I have a Kenmore dishwasher model 36314039000. Can't find manual and it doesn't start, just hums.

A:

You did not mention if the machine fills with water. I will assume it does. These dishwashers have a tendency for the seal inside the water pump to stick. It will keep the wash motor from starting and will hum.

To repair it yourself turn the power off and remove the panels under the door. The wash motor is mounted horizontally and has fiberglass pump housing mounted on one end. Behind the metal flange of the motor is a fan blade. Turn the fan counter clock wise from the pump end until the seal comes loose.

If the dishwasher sets for 2-3 weeks without use it might stick again. With normal use they almost never stick.
