It sounds like you have a food blockage or some blockage between where the water fills up and where it goes into the pump you need to take out the water wand (the rotating thing with water coming out) only the bottom one.

My 12 yr old KitchenAid -Sculptura-Model KUDR24SE starts to fills with water and then does nothing else. It will eventually go through the cycles on the panel, but nothing is happening inside. End result is still dirty dishes with water sitting in the bottom that has to be baled out. Cups on top rack don't have any water on the indentations, so it's obvious that the thing filled with water and that's it. I had the motor replaced (supposedly with a new) one 2 years ago so I find it hard to bel

Bosch Shu43C02UC dishwasher fills with water but the washing won't start. As the filling nears complete, a double clicking noise occurs to start the washing motor but nothing happens. The time continues to countdown but the machine is silent. When I open and close the door, the click click noise is heard but the machine is silent. I can cancel the cycle and drain the water but none of the washing or rinse cycles will activate but the timer works. The soap door even opens if the timer is left to

Maytag Dishwasher Model MDB4100AWQ When I start the Light Wash Cycle: Washer fills with water, heater comes on (I checked it with a volt meter--120 volts), timer runs, motor never runs, before the timer gets to "rinse" the heating delay light on the door comes on and the timer stops. The heater is still on (120volts) nothing further happens it just boils away on the water in the washer.

So, it was working fine for 4 years. Then last week it started getting louder after the initial fill cycle. Now, all it does is fill the bottom with water, clicks (where the motor used to kick in), then just hums. Nothing happens, but when I hit the cancel button, it empties the water from the bottom. Any ideas?

My sound conditioned Whirlpool dishwasher is real old. It fills up completely with water. It looks like it will overflow, so I stop it. I thought it always started washing from the start. Do they always fill completely up with water, then start washing. I never noticed. I am afraid the water will overflow. Can it? Last time I ran this, it had a real loud motor. I used to hear the motor running from the start, but now I don't, just water filling up to what looks like overflow if I let it. I baile

Bosch shu8806 Hello, I aquired a shu8806 recently and it doesn't work. It has power and water. I push wash cycle, indicator light comes on, shut door and nothing happens.  So the door switch seemed like a good place to start. Since I am an electrician I thought I would give it a shot. When plugged in, the wire from the motor is 120V but when jumpered to the neutral(common on the door switch), motor doesn't operate.

The start timer control cycles but nothing happens. The motor seems to gurgle while attempting to fill with water - but no water comes through. We have had this problem before and the repair person replaced the timer control board. Could this be the same problem reoccuring? I have also tapped and cleaned the water float as described by GE website.


I bought a new one and installed it myself. hardest part of installing was taking the old unit out. I compared the cost of a second repair of a 10 year old dishwasher vs. purchasing a new one. We also checked the pump and solenoid to find problems th ... GE Nautilus 24" Built-in Dishwasher

It is not pumping water into the spray arm to wash the dishes. I can get it to fill with water and drain the water, but when it fills and the cycle timer starts, nothing happens, and a slight burning smell occurs. Does this model have a reversable pump or a direct drive? I am thinking this is where i need to start.

When i turn my Viking dishwasher on the motor starts to run but no water comes out. It was humming along for several hours before i realized that nothing was really happening. I turned it of and then tried again but the same thing happened. It sound like a motor and/or pump working but no water enters the chamber. Thanks, Jonathan

FDB750RCC1 When I start the DW, the motor hums loud then soft then loud then soft...if I advance the dial some sections of the cycle nothing will be running and others the motor is on, but no water is getting into the unit. I just replaced the inlet valve and solenoid and that didn't change anything. I can see water in the recirculating pipe running up the unit, but it will just try to make it up and fall back down. Not sure how to proceed...my thoughts would lead me to the main motor, but


Can you hear the water solenoid click when it calls for water? If so, check that the water source valve is on and water comes out of the valve. Check the entry hose for kinks.

We have a GE GSD4000J00WW dishwasher, 2 yrs old. Suddenly seems to fill with water, but no motor engages when you start the cycle. When you turn the knob, it makes a clunking sound, but all that happens is water fills. Also, how do I get the water out of the bottom of the dishwasher now? Thanks!

When I hit the start button on my dishwasher nothing happens. It still "finishes" the cycle but nothing ever cuts on. It doesnt fill with water and the sump pump never engages to drain the water that's not there. Any ideas? I know the inlet water pump works, I've detached it and connected it with a pigtail to an outlet.

Maytag MDBTT79AWW dishwasher fills and nothing else. Once filled you hear a click, followed by a humming sound for 3-5 seconds, then silence. This will happen two or three more times, and then unit will shut off. Motor doesn't start. Repairman says he thinks control board is bad, but he sounds like he is guessing. I performed a field service test , which indicated a fault in the high current motor circuit. Unit is seven years old. Don't know whether to attempt repair, or replace.


That sounds like the motor trying to start but being jammed it is shutting off via an internal breaker. Check for something in the bootom of dishwasher that might have gotten down there that could do this. You might have to take the sprayer off and s ... Dishwashers

My maytag quiet series fills with water and then starts for 5 seconds then stops. This happens 4 times and then the entire system just stops. To help troubleshoot I used a screw driver to trigger the closed door so that I could leave the door open when the cycle starts and the pumps seems to be working and water sprays all over the place. I also took apart the impellar blade to make sure there was nothing jammed and everything is clean. Maytag MDB7500AWW

Normal wash cycle- tub fills (?), then comes a loud hummmm and nothing happens. I noticed water level didn't reach heater coil and added water until limiter switch clicked. Still just a loud hummmm. Machine was well into its regular cycle when this first occurred, but now, won't even get past initial fill. Pushing the "Cancel/drain" button activates motor and pump: they work fine.

Dishwasher will not finish/start a cycle. The washer filled with water and during the cycle I heard a pop like someone knocked something over in the kitchen. I smelled an electrical burning smell. All the lights and the buttons work on the front panel, but when I try to start I hear an electrical buzz like it is trying to start, but nothing happens and after 3 seconds the electrical buzzing stops and the lights on the panel flash.

My Whirlpool Dishwasher ADP931 has stopped working. It stopped in the middle of the cycle with 2 to 3 inches of water on the floor of the compartment. I mopped out the water and tried to restart the dishwasher. The green "on" light now comes on when I press the start button. but nothing happens (no motor comes on,no water enters).Repeating the above action several times does not help the washer to restart even though the other function lights will come on when the knob is turned. saturn1914
