Kenmore dishwasher. The upper rack is not getting clean. Even very light residue remains. And, detergent is left in door at end of cycle. The bottom is filling up, so I don't think it's the intake valve. Also, all the blade openings appear clear. I am noticing that hot water is not filling the dishwasher when I first run the cycle. Even if I have hot water running in the sink, the dishwasher fills with cold or warm water. So, I think this is the problem. What should I do? Thank you in advance!


I find it odd that the dishwasher is filling with cold water if the water is hot at the sink. It sounds like the dishwasher is connected to the cold water line rather than the hot. Check under your sink; if you've got standard plumbing, the dishwas ... Dishwashers

I have a lx30h dishwasher and the problem is that when i turn it on the first time,normally it should fill the sump and wait to fill after it has reached 166 deg .so whats happening now is that it fills only 2 seconds and tries to heat the water but there is not enough to water so the element gets hot and the high limit does it's job.what do you think of my problem.i have never seen that before good luck and i can't wait to have the answer best regards sylvain ouellet

My dishwasher (indestit) will not fill up with water. A technian came today and advise that there was very little water coming through the hose and therfore had a blockage. I replaced it today and it fixed the problem, however onn the 1st wash the cycle appeared to stop rather than completing fully. I have since tried to restart and have the same problem lights 2 and 3 are flashing indicating there is no water getting through, how can this be.

I've been away for a month - just got back and tried putting on the dish washer but it seems that the water isnt getting through to the machine even though the water pipe is on and waters available? any ideas - really grateful


Yes, lots of ideas. You need to disconnect the water line where it attaches to the dishwasher valve and see if water is flowing. If it flows, then you either have a clogged inlet valve (there is a screen inside the valve that catches debri from the w ... De Dietrich 18 in. VW7451 Built-in Dishwasher

CI am having a problem getting our Miele G575 dishwasher to run through a wash cycle. It definitely has power, the water is on and there is no water in the bottom of the dishwasher. When you turn the dial to start a cycle, it hums but doesn't fill with water and doesn't progress through any cycle. We have tried all positions of the dial and have had no luck? Any ideas??


You said it does not progress...meaning the dial does not eventually move? it may be waiting on a water level sensor to be tripped. The dishwasher is just not filling. The water valve solenoid may be stuck or defective. or a wire may have come of ... Dishwashers

My LG dishwasher upper rack has stopped cleaning. The uppermost arm is seemingly getting no water at all and the arm on the underside of the upper rack is getting some water, but not enough to turn it. I have already disassembled and cleaned all the way down to the diverter assembly and it has not fixed the problem. I think this is a problem with a the (?) diverter pump or perhaps a sensor that sends water to the upper arms. I am trying to figure out how to further diagnose the problems. The

My dishwasher was moved for kitchen rennovations. When hooked back up again it would not fill up. It will run through a cycle but no water enters. If I squeeze the rubber hose that leads from the electronic valve to the tub it gets hot indicating that I am forcing hot water through the line. If I pour water into the tub it will wash the dishes but at the final 6 minute point it will go no further, I assume because it is not getting rinse water.

I have had a repairman come out and look at this and he says all the diagnostic test say everything is okay. My problem: my dishes come out dripping wet...like it hasnt dried anything. Sometimes dishes are still dirty. I don't think there is any heat getting to anything. I run the water in the sink beforehand to try to get the water hot. I used this dishwasher for 1-1/2 years with no problems and now I have this problem. What is going on?

FDW60 Fault Hi, I have exactly the same problem. My dishwasher starts and washes ok but appears to get very hot during the drying phase and then the two lights fast and eco flash warning of a heater problem. I suspect either the heater, thermostat or control PCB. As the rest of the cycle seems of and the water gets hot then I'm assuming the heater and thermostat are OK. When the dishwasher attempts to dry is when the problem starts. Did anyone find out what there fault was? Thanks

Follow-up I've removed the lower arm, I'll spend some time and see whether I can get the pobem sorted out. My wife noticed the the detergent was smeared all over the door and repeated tries didn't get it out. Therefore, the water is not spraying. I can confirm the water is filling on the bottom and draining. The heater is working well. I am thinking there is no pressure to send the water through the tubing to the upper and lower arms. The motor is hot to touch (118 degrees with my temp probe). I
