Default Fills but doesn't wash or drain
Model Number: 17439001   Brand: Kenmore   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I recently acquired a Kenmore portable dishwasher. It ran great up until today. It ran as normal but when it got to a certain point it stopped running and you could only hear the dial clicking. I usually run it on the pots setting so I moved the dial to the pots setting and nothing again. I slowly moved it around and it didn't wash or drain at all.

I removed the access panel and made sure the motor moved freely. It was warm to the touch.

I let the dishwasher sit for a while unplugged then tried it again. It started washing for a while. I stopped it by opening the door and afterwards it wouldn't wash or drain again. This happened a few times since I made this post where I would let it sit and then it would work for a few minutes.


Any information would be greatly appreciated.

I had the same problem. The dishwasher would run, and at the end of the cycle there was water still inside the machine. I'm not an appliance expert, but I just went through some troubleshooting. You said you disconnected the hose from the sink to the bucket on the dishwasher. I did the same thing and took a video of doing it because apparently its a common problem. I think in your case, the hose isn't clogged between the sink and machine, but rather after the sink. If you have a food disposer, or even in the absence of it, I often found that accumulation of the machines byproducts became adherent after the hose-sink junction. I disconnected all of them, and it was clear that one part in the networking of the hoses was more prone to byproduct accumulation and clogging. The clog was white in color and tough. This stuff builds up over time, almost like someone's artery, and once clogged, your best bet is to throw it out, and get a new hose. Its a cheap solution, and is usually the cause. 30,000 ppl watched my video on dishwasher repair, and a lot of them reported the same issue and solution. My "how to" video on dishwasher repair may help. I used someone else's video when I approached this issue, and the videos helped... Here it is. Goodluck!:

I do have a question, forget the arm in the bottom, because that's unlikely. Believe it or not, its not usually food clogging it up, but rather the soaps. You can see in the video I attached where the blockage usually occurs.
