Answers :

First you should remove the hoses and clean the screens in the ends of the hose, some hoses have screens in both ends. While the hoses are removed look inside the water inlet valve there should be a screen in there also remove and clean the screen out. Some screens will not be removable so you will need to clean in place or remove the water inlet valve. If all is clear you will need to check the solenoids on the water inlet valve for power.If the solenoid has power when put in a fill cycle and no water eneters your washer you will need to replace the water inlet valve. Most water inlet valves must be replaced as a unit, so if one solenoid fails you replace the whole valve assembly. These are inexpensive and easy to replace. There is a video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html that will walk you thru the testing procedure. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same. If you need help disassembling there are also videos of disassembling most styles your is a whirlpool style. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models will be available
To fix this is going to be kinda involved you'll have to pull the dishwasher out of its built in inclosure tilt the machine forwad on its front lay a towel down so you don scratch the machine. when you lay the machine forward you should see a copper or plastic water line running to the DW take a pair oc channel locks and remove the water line then take a 1/4 inch driver and remove the water valve and replace you'll spend between 75 and 125 for a new valve and even more if its a dual valve just get the model number and call your local app parts dealer goodluck

I have a Honda GC160 5 horsepower power washer with 2400 psi. When its cold it is easy to start but after it has been running for a while the only way to start it is to have the water shooting out of the wand. Once it is hot and running if i stop the stream of water (release the trigger on the wand) then the machine shuts off. It seems like the only way to keep it running is to constantly have water running through the wand. Please help

Champion dishwasher we have a champion freestanding dishwasher at my church. after the cycle is completed, the pressure guage behind the washer still shows 25-30 and it contnues to spray water. not forced by the motor, but more like a stuck open fill valve. if i turn off the water and run it, then turn the water back on, the valve is closed and does not let water freely in. butif i run it with the water on, it will continue to spray in freely after the cycle light goes out and you open the door.

Hello, I have a Kitchen Aid (model # KUDMO1T JWHO) dishwasher that runs the motor in all cycles, with water fill & drain working fine, but the pump is not pumping water during any cycle, as the spinners and the inside of the washer are dry when I open the door, except for the water sitting in the bottom.
