Question and Answers

Q:

Kenmore dishwasher 66515872000 rubber ring on bottom

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The rubber seal at the bottom center of the tub is the pump seal part #8268395. You can remove and replace the pump seal without having to pull the pump assembly completely out. You will need to lift it up just high enough to place the rubber seal on the sump. I added an image below with the instructions for removing the pump assembly but again, you shouldn't have to remove the assembly from the tub in order to replace the seal. See image below for instructions. NOTE: Place a small amount of liquid detergent on the outer side of the seal to make it easier for the sump and seal to drop back into place. Disconnect the power supply from the dishwasher before servicing. It is not a common issue with the seal to be dissolving unless some type of cleaner or chemical was placed in the dishwasher. Was any drain cleaner ever put in the dishwasher? A drain cleaner could possible cause the seal to deteriorate.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

ANTNDE: Basically yes, follow the instructions for removing the pump as instructed in the image I provided in the last post. However, you do not have to fully remove the pump; just raise it up enough to install the new seal.

Q:

Why won't my Kenmore dishwasher model 66515872000 advance past the washing/sensing portion of the cycle?

A:

This dishwasher uses a pressure switch soil sensor to monitor the water. It uses a thermistor (temperature sensor) to detect the water temperature. Since the cycle is getting stuck in the washing/sensing portion, you could have a problem with one of these sensors. You could also have a failed control board. Try running a quick rinse cycle to see if the dishwasher will complete this cycle properly. This short cycle does not use the sensors.

Check the water temperature at your kitchen sink tap. Run the hot tap for 1 minute and then fill a glass with water. Check the temperature of the water in the glass. You should measure about 120 degrees F. If your water temperature is significantly lower than 120 degrees, I recommend adjusting your hot water heater. Low water temperature can add a significant amount of time to some wash cycles on this model of dishwasher. High soil level can also contribute to longer cycle times.

Try running a various cycles with no dishes to see if they will run to completion. Be patient, it may take longer than 2 hours for some cycles to finish. Make a note of cycle times if they run to completion. If all cycles will run to completion with no dishes, then high soil level and/or low water temperature are likely contributing to long cycle times. If the dishwasher gets stuck in the sensing or washing portion of one or more cycles, then you could have a bad control board or failed component such as a sensor. I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair this type of problem in your dishwasher.
