Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

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 Miele Dishwasher (Excella Series G 2630 SCi) fails to fill. I get the message "Water inlet - Open the stopcock". I checked the water inlet filter and looked for hose kinks to no avail. I even checked the non-return valve. When I start the dishwasher I can hear a low hum (Not the pump) for a few second before the error message displays.

Hi there I have a Miele G663 scvi dishwasher. The inlet/outlet light is flashing. I have cleaned the non return valve and filter at the bottom of the machine. I have also removed the water inlet pipe which has a large filter on at the end where it attaches to the water pipe. I have blown through this pipe and it is quite difficult to get air through. Do you think it is a filter that is blocked? If this is the case are they easy to attach to the bottom or the machine or would I have to get

Model # gsd3320c04bb. I am getting water to the inlet valve. I tried changing the inlet valve but still no water goes thru it. I am getting 22 V AC at the connector when operating. The only water that is circulating in the dishwasher is the water that is remaining in the pump system. Any ideas as to what is preventing the inlet valve from operating?


Sounds like you need to replace the mixing valve which is where your incoming water lines connect to the back of the washer. ... GE 24 in. GSD3320 Built-in Dishwasher

I am having trouble attaching 90 degree brass elbow to the plastic water inlet on my new Maytag Dishwasher. Getting leaks. Teflon tape hasn't worked. Cant seem to get the washer to seat properly when everything is tightened down. Wish the water inlet was not made of plastic. It appears it would seat the gasket properly if the water inlet was made of something more durable.

I have a Delonghi dishwasher, it's a stand alone, like a washing machine. The water inlet is connected to the hot water tap, normally used for a washing machine. When we first started using the dishwasher, we kept getting the E4 error message, we reduced the water inlet pressure by turning down the tap, that worked for a while. Just a while ago, we started getting the E4 error message again, not sure we can turn down the tap any further without cutting the water off completely. Do you have a


The E4 error message could be because the water pressure is too low rather than too high. Can you let me know the exact model number of your dishwasher and I should be able to tell you more.\015\012\015\012Regards,\015\012BElectric ... Dishwashers

I have a brand new Miele dishwasher which has worked grate since it was installed 2 weeks ago. It keeps shutting itself off & indicates an F13 fault.

I'm on city water & doubt that the filter is clogged but My wife will kill me if I don't get it fixed today. Can anyone help. Glenn

Dishwasher I have a whirlpool dishwasher that does not appear to be getting hot water. The washer water is cold initially and only seems to get warm once the heater in the base of the machine heats it. The hot water supply line does not get hot so I presume no water is being supplied. Is the water supposed to be hot at the start. If yes could this be caused be a faulty inlet valve and if so how can I check. The dishes are dirty especially on the top rack. Thanks for your help.

Yes, lots of ideas. You need to disconnect the water line where it attaches to the dishwasher valve and see if water is flowing.
