Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Asko Dishwasher DW20.1 d3120 Water not coming through inlet valve. I have replaced the inlet valve - solenoid only releases when on/off switch and start button are pressed and released simultaneously. A burst of water comes out at that point and stops. What could be wrong?

Hi, Welcome to FixYa.\015\012\015\012I'll start by saying your description sounds exactly like a symptom of a faulty control board on Asko dishwasher's...specifically the relay responsible for energizing the fill valve. It sounds to me like the relay itself is receiving power, but then immediately failing which manifest in the manner you describe...water valve energized for a second then nothing. At the stage you seem to be at I would suggest removing the door panel and observing the relay ( they are clear so you can visually see the contacts open & close ) the wiring diagram should identify the inlet relay as "K3" or "K4" I don't recall off hand and I don't have the schematic in front of me.\015\012\015\012Let me know what you observe or if you require further assistance and I will try and be available asap.\015\012\015\012P.S. It could also simply be a poor wire connection on the board, power switch or door switch so check thoroughly.\015\012\015\012Good luck.\015\012\015\012\015\012Macmarkus :)
Hi
\015\012
\015\012Please follow the bellow suggestions…
\015\012
\015\012Turn off the water supply to the machine, both hot & cold. Remove the cold-water hose from the back of the machine. Put the "machine end" of the hose in a bucket, in a sink, or drain (somewhere for the water to go!). Turn back on the cold water, and see if water really is getting through the hose. Turn the water back off. If you're not getting any water out of the hose, call a plumber.
\015\012
\015\012If the above said suggestion is not the issue then look at the water inlet valve (where the hoses were screwed to the back of the machine), and check for any rust, lint, limescale, or anything else that could be blocking the flow of water. If yes, clean the mesh screens, reattach the hoses, and turn the water back onPlease check the link….

The water inlet can fail, and is a fairly easy part to replace. On the back of your machine, there should be a sticker with the model and serial numbers on it. Write down those numbers, and call Sears / Kenmore (or an appliance parts & repair store) for prices and information about the water inlet valve. They (especially Sears) should also be able to give you a schematic and some instructions on how to remove and replace the water inlet valve, but if you're fairly handy -- it might be just as easy for you to look at how the old one comes out, so you can put the new one in.

My Baumatic BWD 1631 will not start unless I close the door, hold down the programme button, press the on/off button, release the programme button, at which point all 5 programme indicators light up. If I then press the programme button again, the lights then all intermittantly cycle. However during this period, the bleeper sounds, the water inlet valve works, the circulating pump works and finally the discharge pump works and the machine empties.

Setting the water hardness system on Beko DWD 4310W. The handbook instructions seem to be wrong. There's no display panel on the machine as it states, and it tells you to press and hold Start/Stop button and switch the On/Off button, release the On/Off button, press and hold Start/Stop button for 10 seconds,( which you are still pressing anyway!) Then it says the last setting will be displayed on the panel for five seconds. But no panel.Totally confusing.

I have an Asko 1585 dishwasher. It drops the inlet valve on step (step 12), and the recirculation pump (next step) tries to pump with no water. Later at about step 47, the inlet valve begins to work again and the dishwasher finishes the cycle without a problem. I have had the board checked, and all of the power supply and transfer circuits are good. That leaves the processor. Is there any combination of buttons to press which can completely reset the controller board?

Whirlpool Quiet Wash Plus dishwasher Model DU920PFGZ3. Worked fine until I replaced the insinkerator and forgot to punch the drain plug leaving water standing on the bottom of the machine. I punched the drain opening, and pushed the cancel/drain cycle button. It drained fine but since no water comes from the spray arms. I have removed the arm all the way down..NOTHING!! Some research indicated it could be the water inlet valve. When the buttons are pushed, it cycles but no spray or water.

I have a Kenmore dishwasher 665.17799990. Not enough water was coming in so I thought that I'd check the screen inside the water inlet valve to see if it was clogged. It was. I cleaned it out,but mistakenly opened the wrong part of the valve looking for the screen and took apart the diaphram assembly. Bad mistake. Now I can't get it back together without it leaking like crazy. I can't remember how it was configured to start with. I put it together once,but it wouldn't shut. I can't afford to buy
