Thread: Kenmore Ultrawash 665-15835793 doesn't drain...

    d/w will not drain all the way. Doesn't appear to be a drain hose problem, but I am new to this... It does sound like it is draining and I hear water moving (in the sink drain). After cycle is complete, there is about an inch of water in the bottom. I tried to push cancel/drain and the water in the bottom gets soapy!



    Any help will be appreciated...

    The drain hose on your model attaches to a 'check valve' (see the link below) which is screwed into the pump housing. That part failing is common for causing incomplete and/or intermittent drains on that design of pump.

    A *partial* restriction in the hose, an air gap on the sink (if used) or the house plumbing connection could also cause some water to remain in the dishwasher. Don't discount anything until it is confirmed. You know the old saying, "When you assume...".

    I've ordered the part (from the link provided) and will let you know after I get it installed. Thanks for your help! Hopefully, I'll be getting back to you soon...

    Got the part installed, but the dishwasher still won't drain after a full cycle. The drainhose does not appear to be kinked anywhere (but it is extremely long under the counter). Any ideas?

    Have you tried disconnecting the drain hose from the house plumbing connection and seeing how it drains into a sink or bucket (but at counter/sink level and not just sitting on the floor). That should rule out the house plumbing and maybe the drain hose length as well?

    It was working previously *in the exact same installation* without draining problems??

    I'll try it. Thanks!

    Yes. Nothing has been changed (except the new drain check valve). While I had it open, I did clean the lower sprayer and much of the interior surfaces with white vinegar to remove hard water deposits.

    More later... Thanks again!

    No luck. We had to call for Service. All the guy did was take the sprayers out and clean them. I think he also took out the pump and cleaned the screens. No parts, but it cost $111 for the house call!
