Answers :

This sounds like a kinked water feed line. Follow the water line from the inlet pipe to the pump and look for kinks or other obstructions.
\015\012When the obstruction is removed or repaired, the water pressure will start the arms spinning again.

Hi I have a Meile G 685SC Dishwasher. It has a water inlet problem. It will not fill and just keeps cycling through the water filling process with the water inlet light flashing. I have taken off the inlet pipe and removed and cleaned the inlet filter and washer and put them back. The filter was blocked with a sand like substance. I have taken apart the antiflood valve also attached to the inlet pipe but it is gel sealed so unserviceable. The inlet pipe itself on removing from the vlave appears

My GE Nautilus DW doesn't fully drain. When it is drained as much as it will it leaves water in the sump at the rear right. If you run the pump at that point, it sucks water out of the sump, but when you open the door and the pump stops water flows back into it. It seems like there is a check valve that isn't working. I have cleaned the sump and the screen which runs accross the rear. I also have taken the plunger out and cleaned it. Then I took the housing for the plugner off the bottom. I don'

I have a Kenmore Elite Dishwasher about 7 years old. The Model # is 665-16462300. It works beautifully, except that about every 2 months the spray flow intensity ( and the cleanliness of the dishes) drops significantly. The cause is the metal screen located just upstream from the sump is clogged with food particles. I have taken apart the dishwasher several times to remove, clean and replace the screen.

I have a three-year-old Sears Kenmore Elite dishwasher. I find that despite the fact that we scrape and rinse our dishes before loading the machine, after each three months of use (two loads a day) or so, I have to take the machine apart (spray tower, racks, bottom impeller, bottom screen housing, food grinder cover) and clean-out the food grinder area, for it fills-up with sludge. The sludge restricts the water flow and there isn't enough flow to turn the impellers via that steering jets.

The dishes are not clean when we run the wash cycle. It looks like the water flow from the top sprayer is NOT working. The door, when we open it, has undesolved soap stuck in globs on the top of the door. The top dishes are not clean and some of the botom dishes are not clean. We've run some clear washes to see if we can find the problem. The water flow looks suspect. Is it in the electronics or in the water mechanics.
