Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Whirlpool dishwasher my dishwasher seems to work fine except that it won't fill with water. what do you think is up with it? Will not fill with water??? Ran fine yesterday, went to turn it on today and it will not fill/spray any water.


Answers :

The very first thing to check is the float inside the tub. Most of them look like a mushroom in one of the front corners. Raise it up and drop it back down. It should move easily and you should hear a slight click as it sets back down. It is common for the float to get knocked out of place by something sticking through the rack when you pull the rack out.

GE Dishwasher model #GSD3735F01WW. The top water sprayer was lying in the top basket when I went to take the clean dishes out this morning. There was nothing that would have gotten in the way when it ran. Small bowls were beneath it. I used it yesterday and it was fine. I tried to reattach it and it just falls off again. What do I do now?

I have a Viking dishwasher made by Asko. It is less than 6 months old. Today I had a problem with my disposal (water not draining through it and leaking under the sink) and ran the dishwasher, which cleaned/dried the dishes fine. BUT, since the water was not properly draining from the disposal, apparently the dishwasher was not draining properly either. A repairman came to fix the disposal before I knew about the dishwasher issue. Now, the dishwasher won't turn off "draining mode" - button pu

Broken dishwasher It started when my dishwasher flooded my kitchen. I drained it and turned it on, it was fine. then it happened again. I have drained it then when I went to turn it on again it just sounds like it is running with no water. If I put water into the bottom it will drain but it will not fill up. I bought this house 3 years ago I am unsure how old the dishwasher, do I need to get a new one?

My Kenmore Ultra Wash 2 portable dishwasher is not filling with water, is there a screen or filter that could be dirty? It worked fine yesterday and I can hear the motot running, but it does not fill. ( I did make sure there is water to the faucet, lol)


Check the solenoids on the water inlet valve. Often when they fail they get extremely hot and melt the outside housing. These are cheap to replace and can be done easily. I recommend contacting TheRepairClinic.com and using the online help feature to ... Dishwashers

One day the diswasher was working fine...the next time it turned it on it ran for about 3 min. then shut off and seemed to have no power. I checked the breaker...it was fine. A few days went by and all of a sudden the lights were blinking on the panel. So I pushed the cancel drain button. The water drained out and I then proceeded to load the dishwasher and turn it on again thinking it was just a fluke when it shut off earlier in the week. It did the same thing...ran for about 3 min and then shu

Bosch SHY66C My Bosch dishwasher won't fill with water.  All electrical connections are fine and I can hear it make a sound as if it is trying to start about every 2 minutes.  There was water in the bottom so I used a shop vac and pulled it all out but it still won't start and is doing the same thing.  I checked the solenoid with a multi-meter and it appears to be working.  My power went out last night for about two hours and that's all I can think of that might have affected it.  The dishwasher


I'm a novice on this question, but i agree with the above statement about check the stuck float switch or check for a bad safety switch or lockout switch of some sort. I would suspect something is definately faulty in that area. Will the dishwasher r ... Dishwashers

I have a GE Quiet Power 3 dishwasher that was working fine last week. Over the weekend I ran it and we could hear a banging noise, so my boyfriend opened it three or four times in a row (during the cycle) to figure out what it was. The fourth time, it went dead. I checked and it had tripped the breaker. I reset the breaker and the dishwasher seemed to be working again, however the lights on the front were flashing (they hadn't previously), and now it will run for about 10 minutes but no water ru

Hi there, I have a Whirlpool Quite Partner 1 dishwasher. It was working fine until today the water would not drain. I detached the drain hose and it was clean as a whistle. When I had the drain hose off I ran hot water and it was draining through clean. What else could it be? I have no idea how to fix this. Thanks.

My dishwasher emits a dead animal smell immediately after filling. I have a 20-year-old KitchenAid KUDS220T3 dishwasher. The racks are a little corroded, but it still cleans dishes just fine. About two months ago, it started smelling like a dead animal immediately after the dishwasher fills with hot water, during the time the water is being heated, but before agitation begins. The smell appears to be coming from around the door. If I open the door, everything inside the dishwasher smells fine.


This vent that you are describing is to allow air to flow in for the heat/dry cycle. Some times little creatures want to "mark" their territory by "spraying". Spray some type of cleaner like ammonia into it and **** it out with vacuum a few times. Mo ... KitchenAid Dishwashers

Dishwasher cycles with timer, won't fill with water. Motor runs fine, drain and fill valves test fine, float switch tests fine too. Water pressure fine. I'm thinking the timer is bad and won't send a signal to the water valve to open. What do you think? The system here doesn't know what a GSD2030F00WW is, so I had to pic one with a computer board, mine is not that sophisticated.

It's like my whirlpool is not getting any water...it was working fine yesterday and today when I started it I opened it after the cycle was done - the dishwashing liquid was pooled at the bottom and the dishes were still dirty help?


On the bottom of the inside remove bottom rack and you will find a plastic float. it is most likely stuck in the up position. jiggle shake , turn and it should go down and allow it to "think" it is empty to allow fill. good luck, let me know. ... Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher

I was replacing my sink faucet today and in the process turned the water off to the dishwasher. Subsequently my girlfriend ran the dishwasher without the water on! Now when I go to run the dishwasher no water comes out (meanwhile I've turned the water to the dishwasher back on). Is there some kind of reset? I accidently touched the coil in the bottom of the dishwasher just after trying to run it and it was hot. What do you recommend? Thanks. Mark

It woked fine for the first few months but now, when I turn it on to wash it fills with water but then it will not go into wash cycle (i.e. there is no water sent into the dish compartment). It will go through every cycle by filling and emptying through wash and rinse but no water goes into the dish compartment. Is there a pump that is perhaps not working? How is th

Dishwasher will not fill with water. I've already checked the float assembly, that seems to be working fine. The water just doesn't seem to run into the machine. Little history on an unrelated problem: I want to mentioned that not to long ago my brother tried to put a bunch of celery through the garbage disposal. The sinks and pipes got all clogged up and we had to take them apart to clear up. Immediately afterwards the dishwasher stopped filling with water. I don't see how the two can be r

My bosch dishwasher runs fine, cleans fine, drains fine....but after it has been just sitting for a while, the bottom very slowly fills up with water. Each time we run the machine the water level drains back to the normal amount in the bottom of the washer after the cycle is complete. The problem is if we are away for a few days, the bottom fills up and overflows onto the floor.
