Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

No water is getting into the machine

\015 Water is not getting in to my DF62 Hotpoint dishwasher.\015\012\015\012The water inlet feed is fine, I have tried to measure the voltage at the solenoid and there does not seem to be anything there\015

Answers :

First check the simple stuff. Have you installed a new garbage disposal? Did you remember to remove the knock out plug? I've seen it a hundred times.
\015\012
\015\012Next, remove the lower panels, and look for any evidence of leakage. The Hotpoint is made by GE and it has the ablility to leak in about 6 different places. Most repairmen will advise a new dishwasher if there is any evidence of serious leakage. On the left side of the pump/motor assy is the drain solonoid. If it is corroded, it is probably stuck in the drain position and water if pumped out as fast as it is put in. The chrome plunger should go up and down as you slowly turn the timer. If that is corroded, you are looking at a $200-300 repair to replace the entire assembly. If that functions OK try this:
\015\012
\015\012Turn the water off, remove the lower panels and disconnect the water line from the machine. Hold waterline over a bucket and turn on. Water flow? If yes, check intake solonoid. You should get 110 volts at the hot wire when timer is on the fill position. Sometimes, the screen in the solonoid can get clogged, especially if you have hard water. Look for gunk in the hole where the waterline was and try to clean it out.

My Kenmore Elite dishwasher doesn't wash dishes properly. I think that it is not getting enough water in the machine. It only allows about an inch of water to get into machine and then starts. I do not think that there is enough water to spin wash arms. I have 40 PSI coming into the house. I am on well water and found debris in the intake orfice. I did my best to flush. Could it still be bad?

I have a Delonghi dishwasher, it's a stand alone, like a washing machine. The water inlet is connected to the hot water tap, normally used for a washing machine. When we first started using the dishwasher, we kept getting the E4 error message, we reduced the water inlet pressure by turning down the tap, that worked for a while. Just a while ago, we started getting the E4 error message again, not sure we can turn down the tap any further without cutting the water off completely. Do you have a


The E4 error message could be because the water pressure is too low rather than too high. Can you let me know the exact model number of your dishwasher and I should be able to tell you more.\015\012\015\012Regards,\015\012BElectric ... Dishwashers

Dishwasher I have a whirlpool dishwasher that does not appear to be getting hot water. The washer water is cold initially and only seems to get warm once the heater in the base of the machine heats it. The hot water supply line does not get hot so I presume no water is being supplied. Is the water supposed to be hot at the start. If yes could this be caused be a faulty inlet valve and if so how can I check. The dishes are dirty especially on the top rack. Thanks for your help.

Hi there I have a Miele G663 scvi dishwasher. The inlet/outlet light is flashing. I have cleaned the non return valve and filter at the bottom of the machine. I have also removed the water inlet pipe which has a large filter on at the end where it attaches to the water pipe. I have blown through this pipe and it is quite difficult to get air through.

I am not getting any water out of the bottom spray arm in my bosch SGS47E02GB35 dishwasher. I have cleaned out the plastic pipe assembly on the left hand side of the machine and the plastic tubes that sit to the right of the pipes. I have blown through many of the other pipes to and dislodged quite a lot of debris which has now been cleared out of the machine. The machine completes its cycle and water comes out of the upper spray arm (there may not be as much water coming out as there should be)

Our Whirlpool KUDP01ILBS2 dishwasher isn't working like it used to. Dishes seem to be getting partially clean, they aren't getting dry at all and it seems they may be being rinsed/washed with dirty water. There is plenty of water in the machine when I interupt the cleaning cycle. I always run the hot water in the sink before I start the dishwasher so the first water into the dishwasher is as hot as possible. Also the sani-rinse light is flashing when the cycle "completes".

The machine does not seem to rinse properly. We have checked the water fill level, water temperature, spray arms are not clogged, have determined it is not a hard water problem and have tried Glass Magic and CLR to verify the lattter. What else can we check to stop getting a film on everything in the machine? Plastics come out terrible, glasses and dishes foggy and sometimes still greasy. The model # is GU2700XTSY0 from the Whirlpool line of Quiet Partner 4. Any suggestions would help. Thanks!

I have an Electrolux dishwasher model ESF489, and I can't get water to go into it.the water goes as far as the machine then the inlet hose just pressurises up.I know the hose is clear .The machine tries to go through its cycles but because the water will not flow,it just cuts out after a few seconds.????

My Frigidaire FDB935RHS0 top rack is not getting enough water (pressure) to rotate the top rack sprayer. We have looked at all the connections under the machine as well as the tubing, but we have not found any obstructions or problems. The water moves very slowly up the tube to the top of the machine and the water only seems to trickle out of the feed line therefore the sprayer doesn't spin or spray. We have disassembled the bottom sprayer and have found no obstructions there either. Do you have

It there a simple solution to this or alot of cost involved with a new part? Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

I can manually drain the water and the machine will then start again but as soon as it gets to the drain/rinse part of the cycle, the problem recurs. I have removed the non-return valve and it was clear of blockages so I am now out of options. The machine is only 4.5 years old. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
