Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Does not use all the soap, and very little water. I have replaced the water inlet valve and inspected for a plugged line


Answers :

Hi,
Don't know exactly what dishwasher you have, but many of them also have a float that will turn off the water...these often get crud-ed up with food particles and do not work properly....then the proper amount of water does not come in... it look like a little umbrella thing... usually in one of the front bottom corners of the dishwasher...
Also if the drain hose falls down too low the water may run out and the dishwasher will not fill right...

Or the brain board or main circuit board may not be timing the water inlet long enough....

You will need to check all of these out and figure out why you are not getting enough water....that is probably why the soap is not being used...

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.

Our bosch dishwasher runs but no water is spraying on the inside. Is there a water filter clean out or is there a water pump that might be broken? I checked the line coming in and it isn't plugged. I made sure where the stainless line goes into the electric valve that it wasn't plugged to that point. I could see anywhere else to check if it was plugged. I figure there has to be a water pump, but I guess I'm not sure of that either. Thanks for any help..

Miele 646 sc plus inlet tank solonoid valve on water tank leaking. We moved the machine from one room to another and now this valve is squirting out water. We replaced both door seals thinking that was the problem, then started the machine with a side pannel removed, and saw the jet of water coming from the solonoid valve on the water inlet tank. Any ideas.

I have a Bosch Dishwasher Model # SHU43C that is not washing properly. Some dishes are not being cleaned if we don't pre-scrub or rinse. There are no error codes on the panel.

Hi :) We have a Bosch slimline dishwasher type SRS56A02 GB/08 - it doesn't draw in water - the timer counts down but nothing happens. We checked these pages and cleaned the filters on the inlet water line but no change :( I saw that it might be the inlet water valve - is this easy to get to - do we need to take off panels? if so, is there a manual available please? Over the past week or so it had got noiser - it was at its quietest while the water was draining out of the machine.

My Whirlpool Gold Series 980 dishwater no longer fills up with enough water to drive the washing arms, so the dishes do not come out clean. I cleaned the filter on the water intake valve (which was really clogged) and it still did the same thing. Replaced the inlet valve and still no change. The water does not reach the level of the overfill float switch, so that’s not it. Its been working fine for 4-5 years, what else could it be? Thank you.

I have a Miele G892 SC dishwasher. When I start the cycle, it drains (except for a bit of water left below the triple filter). After that, the intake valve opens and water enters.

Bosch dishwasher (SXH55MO6UC/46): The power comes on and runs normal, but no water is coming into the unit. I was told that it was a water inlet valve that needs to be replaced (part #263833).
