Kenmore Dishwasher Error Codes

Kenmore Dishwasher Error Code 6-3 or F6E3

Check for sudsy water. If you see excessive suds, try to drain the dishwasher by cancelling the cycle. The drain pump will run for 3 minutes. If the drain pump can’t drain the sudsy water, drain the water by hand or use a wet/dry shop vacuum to remove the water. Check the detergent dispenser and replace if it’s damaged. Use only dishwasher detergent in the dishwasher. Using regular dish soap in the dishwasher causes excessive suds. If you don’t see excessive suds, check the water fill level in the tub because low water level causes air in the pump. The water level should just touch the bottom of the overfill float mushroom. If you find the water level too low, check for bowls or containers that flipped over during the cycle that could be holding water. Load items so they don’t flip over during the cycle and cause low water level. If you didn’t find bowls or containers flipped over and holding water, then a defective water inlet valve could cause the low water level. Unplug the dishwasher to disconnect electrical power and close the water supply valve. Disconnect the water supply line from the water inlet valve and check the water inlet valve screen for clogs. Replace the water valve if you find the screen clogged because debris from the clog can get into the valve body, causing the valve to stick open and possibly flood your kitchen. If the screen is clear, place the end of the water supply line in a shallow pan and briefly open the water supply valve to see if the water flows from the supply line. If water doesn’t flow, have a plumber repair the water supply to your dishwasher. If the water flows okay, check the wiring connections on the water inlet valve and reconnect any loose wires or replace the wire harness if damaged. If the wires are okay, you may need to replace the water inlet valve.
