Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Starts but no water enters

\015 Starts and runs but no water enters. Float seems to work freely.\015

Answers :

Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve.

This problem is intermitten. Kenmore 665 16765690. starting the dishwasher, I hear a motor running. I think it is trying to empty water, however there isn't any water. I will turn the time rotor around to the start again. Sometimes, when I do this the motor running sound has stopped and I hear gurgling sound of water entering. Once this happens, the cycle is good and does well. However, there are times, rotation the timer back to the beginning may take several times, up to about 20 times.

I have an Indesit IDL 42 dishwasher. It has entered a state in which it behaves like this: as soon as I turn it on, it starts swishing the water around (it doesn't pump it out) and it does that regardless of whether I press any buttons (I have tried Start, Reset, turning the program knob, no difference at all). When I open it in the middle of this cycle, the water drips, and there is plenty of water (about 1 in) at the bottom. I have checked the filter, it is clean. Can you please help?

I have a Miele G892 SC dishwasher. When I start the cycle, it drains (except for a bit of water left below the triple filter). After that, the intake valve opens and water enters. It then does nothing for a period of time until the "intake/drain" indicator light starts flashing. When I open the unit, I find about 1/2in of water in the tub (above the tripe filter). I have 1. cleaned the intake valve filter (no blockage found) 2. Inspected the drain line at the base of the unit as well as t

Hi. Our DS603I dishwasher starts on the Rinse cycle on its own - it beeps, red light flashing and no water entering the tub. It does this even if it is open. Similarly, when we try to turn it on to do a normal or heavy cycle, it starts (making quiet a loud noise) and then goes to the Rinse cycle, beeping, red light flashing, no water going into the tub. The pump wheel is turning. We can't find any blockages in the tubes. We have power-cycled it many times. Please help!

My ariston lsv 66 dishwasher will not start washing cycle. It makes the pumping noise as it normally does at the start of the cycle and some water enters the bottom of the machine but then it stops. I have checked to make sure that there are no leaks so the problem is with the filling up of the machine. I live in a hard water area and haven't used anything to help reduce the limescale so expect this to be playing a part. I have tried all the washing cycles but the same thing happens. Any advic

I think I need to check the water pump/motor on my Bosch SHU43C dishwasher. It seems the water enters at the start of the wash cycle but then there is silence through the remainder of the cycles. Water will not spray. The drain appears to work ok to drain most of the water out. I have the washer out and upside down. Any hints on removing the base to get access to the pump? Should AI be looking at the control panel also for a fault? (the cycles seem to count down ok)

Our 2 drawer Fisher and Paykel dishwasher is automatically starting its own washing cycle (well, motor starts, but no water appears to be entering), then it shows F1 error message and a spanner icon flashes. Within 30 secs of this occurring on one drawer, this starts on the other drawer. Only way to stop is to switch off at power socket. Any idea what the error message is telling me?

My Whirlpool Dishwasher ADP931 has stopped working. It stopped in the middle of the cycle with 2 to 3 inches of water on the floor of the compartment. I mopped out the water and tried to restart the dishwasher. The green "on" light now comes on when I press the start button. but nothing happens (no motor comes on,no water enters).Repeating the above action several times does not help the washer to restart even though the other function lights will come on when the knob is turned. saturn1914
