Kenmore Dishwasher woes

13 posts in this topic

I checked the drain lines and nothing.  I then removed the drain screens inside the dishwasher and removed a small piece of plastic but it doesn't seem as this would prevent draining.  The dishwasher will actually overflow if left running.

Any ideas on what could be wrong?  What actually controls the draining process?

 

Thanks in advance.

Will the dishwasher fill with water overnight if left off?

Hello, my nopey friend. I recommend that you clean out the check valve in your dishwasher.

     Moostafa my learned friend from the east.  Do you have a part number for the little flapper in the picture you posted?  There is another similar flapper for the axillary pump I don't know the part number for it either.  I'm ashamed to say the only way I know how to get that flapper is get the chamber assembly and take the flapper out of it.  I do them from the front. I don't pull the dishwasher. That just takes extra time.  Of course a Jedi Master does have nimble fingers.  That's what sets us apart from the part changing monkeys.

Hello, Jedi, my force-filled friend. The check valve in our nopey friend's dishwasher may be procured here.

As you know, this dishwasher was manufactured by the Great Satan, GE, in the very bowels of Hell. I do not know the Great Satan's part number; however, our good friend, RepairClinic, lists their part number as 821081.

Additionally, it may help our nopey friend to view a breakdown diagram of his dishwasher.

   Now you see my quandary Moostafa my friend.  In order to get the little flapper in the first picture you posted one must get the complete chamber assembly (#560 in the second picture you posted).  I'm sure this by design seeing how we are talking about the great satan of appliance manufacturers GE.

Nay, nay, Jedi. Click the parts link that Moostafa posted. It was kinda subtle so here it is again:

You can buy just the piston (item 564) for under $12.

However, this does not change that fact that GE is still the Great Satan. :evil:

   Dude,  Not the piston.  I could run out to the truck and get that part number off one I carry, but its dark and scary out there right now.  I'm talking about the little flapper.  the second item from the top in Moostafa's 1st picture post.  They swell in the hard Florida water stop the machine from draining.  Then I order complete # 560, take it out of the box and remove the little flapper and discard the rest.   Would like to be able to get only the little flapper (not the piston).  In the 1st picture they seem to refer to it as the check valve gasket.

Ahso. I thought you were talking about the chamber...

...get the complete chamber assembly (#560 in the second picture you posted).

Ok, Jedi, since none of the other MASTERs are using the force.

Here's what your looking for:

WD01X10177 Flapper Check Valve (Listed as ref#464 but not shown in picture)

None of the websites had a picture of the piece to verify so I went to my parts supplier (Marcone) and used their picture page and found a model that did have the ref#464 in the picture and it pointed to the place in the chamber assembly where the flapper valve you are looking for goes -- So this is diffinitely the part your looking for.

No more having to purchase the complete chamber to get just the check valve.......... and less then 1/16 the cost of a complete chamber assembly.

     Master Willie   Surly you are at one with the force to have such knowledge readily at hand.  Thank you for the information as well as for your efforts in obtaining it.  As for our friend Moostafa,   I afraid the opium may have finally gone to his towel wrapped head.  I have read the legends on how the great Moostafa ran his small appliance shop with power cells he created from clay pots, yak urine, lime juice and rusty nails.  Long time ago that was.

   Upon reading the previous post closer I see I have made an error.  It was the Samurai, not Moostafa who didn't have a clue.  Sorry Moostafa.
