Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

After water turns on, nothing else happens

\015 We have a freestanding Kenmore Dishwasher model 17425790 push button and a rotary nob for the cycles. When I first plugged it in and turned on the water ( which hooks onto the sink faucet ) the water turned on and everything seemed fine. But roughly 20 seconds later the water stopped in the machine and then just a soft humming started. The cycles seem to still be in motion because the nob is slowly turning and it is hot inside the dishwasher but that's it. I have turned it on and off. I have tried turning the water off and running the cycle. I have made triple sure the door is closed. I have attempted to restart the cycle.The water level *seems* fine. What do I do ? Please help!\015

I have a Kenmore dishwasher (model 363.14478791). I hadn't used the dishwasher in a month. I turned on the dishwasher tonight and noticed nothing was happening, but I was getting a clicking sound. I moved the dial to the right to off. As I moved the dial to the right, there were lots of clicks and clunks. I started over and turned the dial to the start position. Some water went in, but then nothing happened again. I clicked forward one click at a time. Sometimes water came in. Then water star

I turned on the dishwasher tonight and noticed nothing was happening, but I was getting a clicking sound. I moved the dial back to off and started over. Some water went in, but then nothing happened again. I clicked forward one click at a time. Sometimes water came in. THEN WATER STARTED LEAKING OUT. I clicked back to off. After water stopped leaking, I opened the door. There is still water in the bottom. What do I do???


Hi \015\012\015\012Thanks for using FixYa. As the water is not draining and clicking is\015\012coming from the bottom so the issue seems to be with the drain pump solenoid. Usually, these issues are related\015\012to ... Kenmore Dishwashers

When i turn my Viking dishwasher on the motor starts to run but no water comes out. It was humming along for several hours before i realized that nothing was really happening. I turned it of and then tried again but the same thing happened. It sound like a motor and/or pump working but no water enters the chamber. Thanks, Jonathan


It sounds like the Water Supply Solenoid is bad. I would change that and let all of us know what happens. ... Dishwashers

My 12 yr old KitchenAid -Sculptura-Model KUDR24SE starts to fills with water and then does nothing else. It will eventually go through the cycles on the panel, but nothing is happening inside. End result is still dirty dishes with water sitting in the bottom that has to be baled out. Cups on top rack don't have any water on the indentations, so it's obvious that the thing filled with water and that's it. I had the motor replaced (supposedly with a new) one 2 years ago so I find it hard to bel

Jackson jp-24b purchased this machine used, cant figure out how to work it. I flip the auto cycle on, and then the power switch.

At the same time, nothing is happening during the wash cycle, the wash gauge doesnt even move only the rinse gauge. Also when i try to drain it nothing happends (begi

My dishwasher (Optima G2420) had an error F13 for sometime. By turning it off and restarding it would work. But now drain/intake light flashes and nothing is happening. We have checked the triple filter, the filter where water comes in ect. It drains the water but it appears that it cannot take water in. There is a white unit that the intake water goes in and I think that might be the proble.

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

Cycle begins and we can hear water filling up, but the arm doesn't spin, and water isn't being "sprayed" around the washer. We can hear the dishwasher "clicking" throughout the cycle, but nothing else is happening, and about 10 minutes through the cycle water just comes pouring out the bottom of the door. There is a bit of a burning smell as well.

My KitchenAid dishwasher model # kudp01ilbl2 won't start. It is the first time we're trying to start it since we had our water heater replaced (three, maybe four days ago). Not sure how much that may matter. I tried turning off electricity to the dishwasher at the fusebox (overnight), but that did nothing. Normally, you just need to hit the start button and the washing begins. Now, nothing happens. The dishwasher is about six years old.
