Water not going to machine - Dishwashers


Answers :

The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. First Check to see if the valve is getting water. Make sure it's not clogged. There is a screen on the inside of the valve, this sometimes gets clogged up with debris. Check to see if you get power to valve when unit is put into operation may take a couple minutes to start a fill. If you have power and it's not clogged up replace the valve .If you have no power to the water inlet valve check float switch. This can be done by checking the continuity. There is a video of this at http://appliancehelponline.com/dishfloatwaterinletvideo.html this will walk you checking the water inlet valve and the float switch. It may be a different model but the testing procedure will be the same. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations for most models. All parts come with installation instructions.

I have an Electrolux dishwasher model ESF489, and I can't get water to go into it.the water goes as far as the machine then the inlet hose just pressurises up.I know the hose is clear .The machine tries to go through its cycles but because the water will not flow,it just cuts out after a few seconds.????


Assuming the control card is working ok, the most likely problem is the water inlet valve which may have a faulty solenoid. Do you not get any indication of beep or fault lights on the dishwasher.\015\012You can find a possible replacement at ... Electrolux Dishwashers

Where can I get the instruction manual for a Bosch Classixx Dishwasher SGS53C12UK? I have bought a second hand dishwasher that has only been used for 6 months. The programme works fine but when I go to use it again - check water shows on the display. I have to tilt the machine back as water is stored at the base of the machine, surely this is not normal? It there a simple solution to this or alot of cost involved with a new part? Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

Dishwasher wont fill with water. just before it stopped filling i was turning the dial (a lot) between the wash cycles back and forth to attempt to get it to fill and drain (I didn't let it go through a cycle). We also removed the hose from the machine as it had split and replaced it and we had the machine tilted on it's side. the dial still clicks round but it sounds like the pump is going and it doesn't seem to be filling with water.

Dishwasher confused Dishwasher was switched off just after cycle commenced (tablet had been released). On restarting dishwasher, it wouldn't take in water and has just been going through the motions of the cycle without anything happening. Even when the power button on the machine is switched off or the door is opened, the motor continues to run but without water. Water is definitely switched on under sink. I think the computer is confused - can you please help?


I suspect this is nothing to do with switching off during the cycle.take the bottom plate off and check if there is water leaked into the bottom pan. alternatively, if you can, tilt the machine back to 45deg and see if water runs out.most ... Dishwashers

I have a Frigidaire dishwasher and there is not any water coming out of the top wash arm. There is good water pressure coming out of the lower washarm.

I put the "check ball" back in and ran the machine on "Upper Rack" and it still does not have any water coming out of the upper washarm. It doesn't seem lik

Hi, I have a Siemens SE44 dishwasher with Aquastop, which I bought recently. It was doing great for first 3-4 wash cycles and then it stopped functioning :( Now all it does is let the water in, and then drains it out- it doesnt do anything else. I can hear the water going in and then the machine drains the water,and this repeats. I tired resetting the dishwasher, checked the drain pipe, aquastop etc, and all seem to be in order to me. Any suggestions? Many thanks, stonerockyy

I have a whirlpool DWH B10W. Last week the main drain outside blocked and none of my service machines were working (not draining). The main drain has now been unblocked and every machine except the dishwasher are now working fine. The plumber has checked the drainpipes again and says all are now clear. When I try to use the dishwasher, after the initial drain it stops and starts beeping at me. I have also noticed that no water is going into the machine. What's happening?

Holding water There is water in the bottom of the machine after the cycle is done. There is definitely draining going on throughout the cycle, but it's not draining completely at the end -and the water that is left is murky. Spoke to a friend who tells me it sounds like the dump valve, but in checking on line, that doesn't seem to be a part that even exists any more. Do I need to buy a new dishwasher? This was not in the budget this year... Thanks for any advice! Nancy
