Kenmore Elite Dishwasher Model 665.17263401
« on: March 01, 2012, 08:32:54 PM »
The upper washer arm is not spinning and the dishes are dirty after a wash cycle.  When I open the door I can tell there is water coming out of the holes but it does not spin.  Worn bushing?

most likely just needs a good cleaning, need to take sump apart & clean filters & chopper blades.

Cleaned it just like the video said. Tons of junk in there. However, still not spinning. Bottom is spinning but not the top.

Yes. It does. In fact, I think the glasses are dirtier than when they went in.

 what you might have a problem with the water flow or check the water filter and see if thats clogged up and see if there's enough water  coming in

This is the stuff I pulled out. Wondering about the three black rubber circles that are a little sampler than a dime.

looks like the seals in the back tube, if they are missing, water pressure will just come out the missing seal, if this is the case , order part # AP3964204.

Just about ready to order the "tube", but I dont see where the three mystery pieces would even go?  I wonder if they are from the machine?  Perhaps from something that was washed in it (and they fell off)?

The black objects are not from the machine.  The little plastic pieces look like they're from the silverware basket. Don't order the tube, there's nothing wrong with it.

I'm assuming low pump pressure issue since you have covered everything else already.

Remove the chopper assembly and retest unit with dishes and see if it improves without the chopper assembly.  If you have a better wash, it is most likely a weak motor.
