Zanussi DW908 dishwasher will not fill with water, when filled manually completes cycle untill fill time again. when filled continues on until water needed again. Only cold supply to machine. Water coming to valve, removed valve and freed it up as it was stuck, water flows through the valve when disconected from the dishwasher at filler pipe which leads up the side of washing chamber.

Jackson jp-24b purchased this machine used, cant figure out how to work it. I flip the auto cycle on, and then the power switch. The fill light turns green and i assume water is filling up in the machine. In the meantime there are two small red external hoses that hot water comes and i currently just have those hanging in the sink. At the same time, nothing is happening during the wash cycle, the wash gauge doesnt even move only the rinse gauge. Also when i try to drain it nothing happends (begi

My plumber just installed a new water supply line for my dishwasher. Now the pump comes on but no water fills up in the machine. If I fill the bottom of the unit with water, it works just fine. Even though the water supply is ON, it does not pump water into the 'box'. Thanks, Art

We installed a Samsung DMT 300 and gave it a test run. All went well. The next time the lady used it it would not pump water into the machine. We went back and checked and there is water to the machine but it will not go into the machine. Any ideas? Thanks.

KUDK01ILBS5), SN: FR2702809. Have used this machine 6 years and just recently experienced noise that I eventually traced down to a bad recirculation pump bearing that failed due to a small leak in the shaft seal. Installed a new pump on Friday, 4/21/10 and that particular noise is now quieted. While the bearing noise was gone, there remains a pumped water noise that is quieted by manually adding about 1/2 gallon of water within the machine. So I now believe the water level is low, possib


The water level in the machine should be slightly under the heat element. The float you refer to is only for overfill and should not be activated if the machine is filling properly (the water level should be lower than the float switch activation poi ... Dishwashers

Hi, Dishwasher problem: When a programme starts, the machine fills with water then stops and the "check water" light comes on. To empty the machine, I used the reset programme which does empty the machine. Any ideas of about what might be causing and the solution to this? Many thanks, Richard


You will need to check the inlet valve and the water level pressure switch. It can also be a low pressure in the pump that is giving out the signal for the control board to shut off.\012So first of all check the water line throughly to confirm. ... Bosch 24 in.

Just got a used F&P Smart Drive 5.5 MW059. First few times I used it wouldn't always start on certain settings but once it did start it ran through just fine. On the fourth use, it was very difficult to get it to start and it just stopped after it filled up. Pausing and restarting, shutting of machine and retrying did not help. Was able to advance to rinse mode and got machine to drain water; however, instead of going into spin mode it just attempted to drain continously. I let it do its th

Indesit dif04 hi, dont use the machine that often but tried it today. It made the usual filling with water noise but then stopped working when there were a couple of inches of water in the bottom.

My ariston lsv 66 dishwasher will not start washing cycle. It makes the pumping noise as it normally does at the start of the cycle and some water enters the bottom of the machine but then it stops. I have checked to make sure that there are no leaks so the problem is with the filling up of the machine. I live in a hard water area and haven't used anything to help reduce the limescale so expect this to be playing a part. I have tried all the washing cycles but the same thing happens. Any advic

Check to see how hot the water can be, ti should be on the unit or in your book. also your amps should be no less than 15amp, long core can over heat the motor. if your unit can't handle hot water it will melt the valves ... Dewalt Pressure Washers

Hi I have a LG dishwasher, model LD-2052WH/LD-2052SH/LD-2052MH. The machine is about 30 months old, and used very seldom. In the last two weeks we noticed a very loud "grinding" sound emmiting from the machine. This sound usually happens when you switch the machine on as the water if filling or the wash blades are rotating. What is the cause of this, and how can I get it fixed?

Water remains in the bottom resevoir but does not run. we have attempted a number of cycles but same thing happens, machine does not run at all.

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.

Ariston dishwasher (ls2050a) uses cold water to fill. Cycle starts but does not heat the water and the cycle does not progress, and of course, the dishes are not cleaned.


This usually happens because the element used to heat the water has failed, either that or the electronic drive circuitry has, sometimes it is the temp sensor. Unfortunately one has to troubleshoot to isolate and attempt repair.\015\012\015\012 ... Dishwashers

European Bosch SKT 5002/02. Was disconnected by our plumber to install new cabinets. Not used during winter, as it is never used in winters. Fills with water, makes no noises but does nothing else.
