Hi there, we have been TRYING to repair our Magic Chef Dishwasher, CBD1500AWW, for over 2 weeks now. I have been frequenting this site, trying to apply things I learned here to our issue... It all started when we decided to clean the filter... We have had lime scale, or calcium buildup, I DON'T KNOW, in the dishwasher for years, and it had gotten to the point where it interfered with the proper running/cleaning of the dishwasher. We took the spray arms out, undid the various parts, UNBOLTED them is more accurate, and chipped off all of this yucky white hard stuff. It was horrendous. And then we put it all back together and used an additive to help dissolve the rest of the Yucky White stuff, man what a pain!!!! We were so excited!!! We did it!! My mother and I her daughter, did this all by our selves... We ran a very small load as a tester, and I checked the results... I almost cried when I saw the dish detergent all over the cutlery (the cutlery basket is on the door right below the detergent dispenser) and nothing was clean, or even residually moist. We both searched for clues as to why the dish washer was filling with water, and the spray arms weren't spraying... UGH!!!! We took it all apart again, and double checked everything, GOOD LUCK finding a manual for this model! Still nothing... Mom noticed that the spray arm base was wiggling and not seated firmly, and we decided that maybe it needed to be bolted down, and that was it!! It works like a charm now... So, my advice, TAKE PICTURES with your phone at every step when you're removing something, and take notes... That way you don't have to rely on a sometimes faulty memory!! And everything else should be easier to understand!!! I hope this helps others!!
If your detergent does not dissolve, I am not certain if your washer gets any water. How do you know it is draining water? to further diagnose your problem, I would start the EMPTY dish washer on a normal cycle, wait a few minutes and open door. There should be water on the bottom of the dish washer. If there is, start your washer again let it run for a few SECONDS and open the door to see if the arms are turning. note the location of the spray arm close the door and let is run again for a few SECONDS. Open the door again, the arm should now be in a different position. You may have to do this a few times to make sure your can observe any movement of the arms. Let us know what you find out.
No movement of sprayarms
i selected "i have the same problem" but, now i can't get to it. i hope others see my post and may have an answer for me.
i have a Kenmore dishwasher model 665.13742.k603.
problem similar to William's issue. my unit fills properly, starts washing, sprays and rotates all arms. but, within a few minutes it runs out of water.
it continues to run without water then fills to rinse. then it is empty again same for the last wash cycle.
i will say per one of the posts here. the water doesn't turn back on once it has filled. i mean it does like right after the pump turns on and gets the water level below the required limit then fills the last bit before the pump turns back on. then when the pump runs it doesn't fill again. so, i think that is working properly.
i have the drain hose running over the top of the dishwasher because the drain is on the other side of the machine. this goes to the 32" loop height requirement.

Try unplugging it, wait 30 secs and retry. This work while doing maintenance work
My Kenmore is brand new. Just installed yesterday and has the same problem of not pumping water up to the arms, but will fill and drain. Will unplugging for a few seconds reset anything thT might help?
