Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

With the assistance of someone from this forum, I can see that my dishwasher is slowly leaking water from the opening on the left side of the dishwasher area. There appears to be a problem with the dishwasher fill valve, and I'd like to know if it is something that I can replace/fix on my own. Thanks, Nick


Answers :

Yes it should be possible to replace the fill valve but I will need the make and model number of your dishwasher to provide you further suggestions.

Hi I have a Meile G 685SC Dishwasher. It has a water inlet problem. It will not fill and just keeps cycling through the water filling process with the water inlet light flashing. I have taken off the inlet pipe and removed and cleaned the inlet filter and washer and put them back. The filter was blocked with a sand like substance. I have taken apart the antiflood valve also attached to the inlet pipe but it is gel sealed so unserviceable. The inlet pipe itself on removing from the vlave appears

Hi I have a Candy cd242 dishwasher all of a sudden it has stopped washing, I found that the feed hose had a kink in it so have re- routed that. But now the timer appears to go around but only part runs each section of the programmes, and then just ticks the rest of the time. Does any one know the problem or could it be a over filling valve that has sent a message to the controller. If so how do I re-set that. I would appreciate any-ones help to [email protected] cheers simon

I have a neff dishwasher that is maybe 5 years old. im pretty sure there is nothing wrong with it as it was working perfectly fine before i had a plumbing problem a few days ago. after the plumbing problem was fixed the dishwasher doesnt seem to want to fill any longer. it sounds like it wants to work but its just not filling and going thru the cycle. does it just need to be reset or something? im not sure of the model number as ive misplaced the directions for it. could you please help? by the

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

Model: Whirlpool ADP 4501/5 (4 years old) Problem: Dishwasher won't start wash cycle. Green light flashes 11 times. After adding a bucket of water to the dishwasher it runs normally. Checked the inlet valve and it appears to be fine. Filled the salt container and it solved the problem for a while but having the same problem again. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

No Power I have a bosch shx33 dishwasher. I just replaced the water valve because of a leak and now I can't start the dishwasher. It's like there is no power to the unit. I know there is power because I get a shock if I touch the two wires that are connected to the water valve. Is there another trip switch or something somewhere?


First let me say that using parts of your body to test for mains electriciy is a VERY VERY bad idea. You are lucky you are not dead.

My dishwasher works except is does not appear to be getting water. David psr responded: Most likely the water valve is defective or stopped up with calcium deposits. In either event, you probably need to replace the water fill valve. Not a terribly expensive nor difficult job on most dishwashers. Do I call a plumber, appliance store repair department or look for a local handy man?


I agree that the fill valve may be bad or clogged. You can fairly easily remove the valve yourself if you are somewhat handy and then take it apart and clean it. I doubt if the old valve is electrically shot but it is possible. Cleaning it out may ... GE Dishwashers

My glassware almost seems like it has breadcrumbs stuck to it. I have run several empty cycles but the problem persists. Is there a filter I am supposed to be cleaning or something? I can see in the leftover puddled water on the recessed exterior glass bottoms what almost looks like sand particles or breadcrumbs, although I know it's not. I had the same problem at my last house with a different brand of dishwasher. How do I get rid of this if it doesn't flush out the system, even on an empty cyc

I have a hotpoint built in automatic dishwasher model HDA3740G02SA. When my dishwasher runs all the cups on the top shelf seem to have dishwashing soap powder left in the bottom of the cups. I do not over fill the cup where you put the dish washer powder in. It seems like it isn't rinsing the glasses and cups on the top rack of the dishwasher properly. Do you know what the problem would be and how to correct it?


Make sure the arm on top isnt hitting something, each time you load it each in there and spin it to be sure it moves freely, also make sure your rinse agent container is full of rinse agent. ... Hotpoint 24 in. HDA3740G Built-in Dishwasher

Dishwasher sounds like it is running normally, (no grinding sounds or anything)but there doesn't appear to be any water coming into the machine. we checked to see if there was a kink in the line or if perhaps it was a plumbing problem but that does not seem to be the case. I know the circular disk in the front of the machine needs to be down and it is, so can you figure out without seeing for yourself what could be the problem and if so is it worth fixing since I can probably replace it for und

Smeg DWF612WH dishwasher has developed a leak. Water comes out of the rectangular hole on the side of the water softner used to mount what looks like a level or pressure switch. A few seconds after the fill valve opens water leaks out, not a lot just a small trickle. After the washer has filled and goes ito its cycle, it does not leak again. Over the past weeks the problem has got progressively worse.

Our Asko D1716 dishwasher functions to fill and empty but the pump which causes the sprayers to rotate and distribute the water does not function. The local appliance repairman diagnosed the problem as a bad pump (he called it a motor). Since the pump is a $400 part plus labor, is it possible that the problem is something else like a bad motor capacitor or relay? When the cycle calls for the pump to come on, there is no sound except for a very soft hum.

Hello, I have a Kitchen Aid dishwasher, model KUDS30IVWH3. The dishes have not been getting as clean lately, the bottom is decent but the top rack is not getting very clean. Also, when I open the door after the cycle is done, there's a bunch of detergent at the bottom of the door and on the floor of the dishwasher, like it isn't getting sprayed all over or something. Don't know if I have to check the water intake valve or if maybe the sprayers could be partially clogged.

Hello, my slimline, Hoover, HEDS 668, AAA class, dishwasher is playing up. During a wash cycle, my meter tripped. When I put the power back on, all the light were flashing and beeping. The beeping stops after a while and all the lights stay on. It sounds like it is trying to fill up or drain or something too, but that soon stops. The filters are clean. What could be the problem?

Maytag HDB8600AWW Dishwasher had been making noise (thought might be water valve, like previous DW), eventually stopped draining water, water now in bottom, I've let sit for couple weeks, looked inside, water was gone, I tried running again, it filled with water, but heard humming control panel noises for first time, then shuts itself off. Also, my handle needs replaced. Please let me know as soon as possible. Thanks in advance. David Weaver

Please give us your expert advice.

The detergent dispenser [Main Wash] door doesn't stay closed. It seems like there is something wrong with the latch, but we can't what. We've cleaned it, but don't know what else to try. There don't seem to be pieces missing or broken. But no matter what, when we put in the detergent [we use the cubes] the door always just pops open and the detergent ends up falling to the bottom on the dishwasher. The dishes are still getting relatively clean, but we want to solve the problem with the door

My Kenmore dishwasher model number 665-16389300 is starting to fill up and not drain during the normal wash cycle. Water will run out on the floor. When we hit cancel and drain it appears to drain just fine so I dont know if it is a pump issue or something in the cycle. What do you think?

Dishwasher leaking. I was supplied a flat seal ring of about 100mm dia., 10mm wide & 1 mm thick for the machine when I bought the house. Water on the floor tells me something underneath is leaking for the first time.
