Question and Answers

Q:

Kenmore 587-14002992 Popcorn Kernels stuck in filter.

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the dishwasher. To remove the filter you have to remove the lower rack first. Then you need to use a small flat blade screwdriver. Use the screwdriver to pry out on the locking tab of the spray arm and lift it out. After the lower spry arm is removed, a lock nut has to be removed to take the filter out. This model has one of two locking nuts. The most common style has a locking tab on the inside that has to be pried towards the center using the small screwdriver. Once you have the tab pried over turn the not counter clockwise to remove it. The second stile has teeth on the under side that keep it tight. To remove this style just turn the nut counter clockwise to remove it.

Once the nut is removed, you lift out the soil filter and the fine filter. To clean out the filter use a kitchen brush and warm water. After it is clean, reassemble in the reverse order.

I usually like to add images to aid in the repair but I am sorry the repair manual does not have instruction on this model.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Thank you for the reply. The large filter should have a part that hangs down. That part should fit into the opening of the pump. If you remove the filter, you should be able to see a hole that is the same size and shape of the part on the filter. I have added an image below that shows the part I am referring to on a similar model. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for your reply. I am sorry for the lag time. I was out of the office for a few days. If the dishwasher is not draining I recommend starting a cycle and listen for the dishwasher to fill and wash. Then the wash motor should pause for a few moments and turn the drain motor on. You need to listen for the drain motor to come on. Then wait for the drain motor to stop. Once it stops open the door and see if it drained. If the water drained, you know the pump is fine. Know close the door and finish the cycle. As soon as the cycle is complete, open the door and check for water. If there is water, the problem could be a timer not going through the last pump out. If the dishwasher is drained, the problem could be waste water siphoning back into the dishwasher. if this what it is doing look under the sink and make sure the excess drain hose is tie up as high as possible. That should prevent the back filling. Please reply below with the details of what you have found and I will be happy to aid in the repair. I am here the rest of the week.
