Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

My dishwasher will not fill with water it will switch on but thats it. The make is Tecnic


Answers :

Make sure you are getting 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 this case, you should replace the water valve.

Frigidaire Dishwasher FDB740RC. Not cleaning dishes well. Just in the past couple weeks. When the dishwasher fills with water, how full should it get. When mine fills, it definitely doesn't go up to the element, and just barely makes it to the float switch (not enough to trigger it), makes it to just below the base of it, doesn't come up the side of it at all. Is this normal, or should there be more water. The Water valve has been replaced already.

I have a frigidaire built in dishwasher, about 5 years old. Model #FDBL960BB0. I had a clogged sink which caused my dishwasher to back up. Had the drain unclogged, went to start my dishwasher, it's making the regular cycle noise but is not filling with water. Is there some sort of safety switch that needs to be reset before it will fill with water?

Bosch logixx dishwasher sounds like its running continuously & will go through entire program but does not fill or wash. Filled it with hot water manually to try for air locks & it does drain out. Then continues to attempt to drain even while door is opened. My amateur guess is that its a float switch but can I get at it from the inside or from the back? If thats what it is. Hope you can help,thanks.John

Model No. DU850SWPU3 AND SER. FT 4101406 TYPE 280-0. When cycle is complete and in off position the dishwasher fills with water. I find the bottom of the dishwasher standing full of water when I get ready to fill with next load of dishes. When I remember to turn off the wall switch this does not happen, however once in a while I forget to turn off the wall switch. The next day I find the bottom of the dishwasher full of water again.

I have a DU8000XX6 series Kenmore dishwasher that won't drain the water properly. There is about a half inch of water in the tub and the float is raised (not sitting on tub bottom). When I lift up the float a little more I can hear the float switch make. I would assume that when the water is high enough the float switch makes and energizes a solenoid valve in the drain to drain the water, but shouldn't it stay open until all the water drains?

My Kenmore Elite dishwasher (model 665.17462300) is not spraying the water from the basin in the bottom up through the rest of the dishwasher. The basin fills with water, then just makes a humming noise and appears to splash a little of the water around the very bottom of the dishwasher. When we cancel the cycle, it does drain out the water from the basin. I cleaned all the gunk and debris out of the basin in the bottom, but it didn't make any difference.

Whirlpool dishwasher model DUB700XB has quit cycling. Fills with water but will not start wash cycle. Making intermittent humming noise unless the door is open to disengage the switch, even when on stop. No LEDs lighting when rotating the dial through the various cycles. Unit is old and wondering if it's better to buy a new one rather than fix this and have something else go wrong in the not to distant future. Thanks in advance

... Neff 24 in. S5453X1 Built-in Dishwasher

Maytag Model MDB7160AWW S/N 10337613WQ Symptons: Fills with water OK, shuts off water OK, does not start any cycle, or drain. After a power off/power on reset, problem remains. Flashes CLEAN & LIGHT WASH. My understanding is this is an error condition for low motor current, which makes sense as the motor never starts. I know both door switches are good (I checked them with a DVM) and both engage when the door is closed. Tripping the water float switch opens the valve and water fills the tub

I have a Neff Dishwasher and I think the problem is due to the cold water inlet valve. When the dishwasher starts it drains any water and then should stat to fill. If I monitor the voltage to the valve it does switch to 240V but still fails to fill. I have verified that the cold supply works OK and the filter on the inlet is clean. The dishwasher is a NEFF GB5121 and is about 20 Years old.

Hello, We have a combination oven and dishwasher. Last week I filled up the dishwasher and after about 5 minutes a blue spark came out at the bottom and it cut the electricity off. Once the electricity was restored we started it again and after a few minutes it just stopped after filling up with water. It blew a fuse again but only one fuse this time and now doesn't switch on anymore. We have emptied all the water from the dishwasher and checked the filter, etc and wonder what could have gone wr

SHX46B I have a 4 year old Dishwasher that filled up with clean water on it's own and leaked on the floor. There appears to ba a float switch switch on the very bottom of the unit that runs the pump if this happens. It won't stop until I remove the water caught in the plastic base on the very bottom of the unit. Drain is clear and this machine has worked fine until now. I'm thinking it may be a bad or leaky fill valve but how can I check?

Model #363.14232100 dishwasher. When you turn the switch to on, it will not come on. If you keep turning the knob slowly you can hear the dishwasher trying to start up,but it doesn't. Keep turning the knob and its the same thing, sounds like it will start, but it doesn't. It did fill with water, but once it was opened it didn't start up where it left off. The lock switch was in position, and still nothing. Now I have water in the bottom but can't get the thing to come on. Any suggestions? Help!

Have a Bosch shy56a05uc dishwasher that suddenly stopped working to a point. I believe it is related to the door latch switch, because I don't feel the door securely latch shut when I close it, and I also don't get any cycle lights or times registered on the LED readout. If I depress the on switch, the drain pump will start even with the door open, and, depending on how long I leave the switch on, water will start to fill in the dishwasher, open or not.
