Check the following to address this issue


1. No water
\015\012\011\011\011Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water \015\012\011\011\011shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to \015\012\011\011\011the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill \015\012\011\011\011cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at \015\012\011\011\011the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either \015\012\011\011\011side), in which case replace the water valve.
\015\012\011\011\011
\015\012\011\011\0112. Not enough water
\015\012\011\011\011If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. This \015\012\011\011\011could be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (located \015\012\011\011\011under the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at the \015\012\011\011\011bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).
\015\012\011\011\011
\015\012\011\011\0113. Clogged spay arms
\015\012\011\011\011There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. \015\012\011\011\011Make sure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray \015\012\011\011\011arm.
\015\012\011\011\011
\015\012\011\011\0114. Water temperature is too low
\015\012\011\011\011To get the best results, the water has to be at 120 degrees \015\012\011\011\011Fahrenheit when entering the dishwasher.
\015\012\011\011\011
\015\012\011\011\0115. Not enough soap
\015\012\011\011\011If you only fill one part of the soap cup, try adding soap to \015\012\011\011\011both parts.
\015\012\011\011\011
\015\012\011\011\0116. Smoky film on dishes and glasses
\015\012\011\011\011This problem occurs due to excessive calcium build up inside the \015\012\011\011\011dishwasher. Try cleaning you dishwasher using a dishwasher cleaner.

I have the GE Quiet Power 3 Model gld4400n10bb. When I start a wash I can hear it fill with water (to about 1/2 inch below the heating element). It then waits for about 5-7 minutes and pumps the water out. It fills again several times and pumps out. It doesn't sound like it is washing though. The whole interior of the dishwasher is covered with dried soap. I can also tell that water is not spraying around the whole interior. Any ideas?

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.

I have a GE Profile, GSD4930X73WW, dishwasher. The upper wash arm is not spraying well at all. I checked the water line from the pump to the upper arm and it's fine. I cleared the filters and cleaned the float. I also took the inlet valve off and cleaned the screen. Although the washer works better overall, the upper arm still does not work well. Nothing appears to be in the upper arm assy to clog water from spraying out. All seems clear from the turbid sensor (next to the pump) through t

Whirlpool dishwasher doesn't seem to fill with enough water despite good water pressure. Therefore, pump sounds like it is cycling from pumping water for about 2 seconds to going dry for 2 seconds to pumping water for 2 seconds to going dry for 2 seconds, etc. Spray arms rotate only for the 2 seconds when pump is actually pumping water. Dishes do not get clean.

Hello, I have a problem with our Miele G646SC Plus dishwasher. It starts its cycle OK, draining out any residual water, taking in fresh water and doing the initial rinse. After about 5 minutes it then stops with the "inlet/drain" red light flashing. The detergent is still in the holder and the water is still cold. The filter at the bottom of the compartment is clean, the drain pump spins freely. I've also checked for any leaks in the bottom of the machine that would trip the styrofoam/microsw

I have a KitchenAid KDS-17E dishwasher, which has worked well since I acquired it second-hand in 1984. Last night it ran continuously, stuck in the prewash part of fullcycle, with water being pumped through the system, and was fairly warm in the morning. It drained normally when I pressed the Cancel/drain button. I tried the machine again in full cycle. After 20 minutes it was still stuck in prewash, with the water temperature about 42 C, so I stopped it. Machine is connected to cold wate

My Bosch Dishwasher does not drain all the water out of the dish washer after the finishing cycle...I usually start the washer and then push the drain cycle and it starts to pump for about 10 seconds and stops and starts and pumps again for 10 seconds and stops and then pumps for about 25 seconds and stops....doing this manual drain twice empties the dishwasher of the excess water....what may the problem be?

My Bosch diswasher is hanging up in the cycle (at 102 mins. in normal cycle and 38 mins in quick cycle). I hear what sounds like a one second pumping of water into the sink area, a pause, and then another one second pumping of water, on and on, but there's no progression beyond this point. One possible cause: a few weeks ago someone turned off the hot water at the heater and another person tried to run the dishwasher. The dishwasher did not function because it could not get hot water.

Not getting enough water flow into the dishwasher, suspect that a filter is clogged due to recent work on the waterline in the kitchen sink. Need to know where the filter might be located (on the dishwasher or on the intake valve before the connection to the dishwasher hose)? Also would I need to disconnect the water supply to pull out the dishwasher for access to such a filter.


You didn't specify a brand but most dishwashers don't have a water "filter." They may have an inlet screen at the water valve, which is typically located under the dishwasher. Generally, the lower front panel will have to be removed and you should ... Dishwashers

I received a second-hand as-is Akso D3530 (model #107353001) dishwasher. It washes perfectly fine, but at the end of the cycle, it keeps running. It does not seem to be the drain that is running, but rather the circulating pump. I have fully emptied the pan of water (there was only a little in it (you couldn't see it until you removed the sieve) using a turkey baster and it keeps running. I also checked the float sensor in the bottom. The float sensor is not tripped, and when I manually trip it,

Lately the soap remains in the dispenser, dried and caked in (I have to dig it out with a sharp object, as it becomes a solid piece). I have also tried gel soaps, but find them in the bottom of the dishwasher, partially intact. The mistery is this does not happen all the time, but most of the time! I've checked the water pressure and the water temperature: both seem to be fine. The dishwasher does run a full cycle. Is it time to buy a new one?

Hello, I have a CONSTRUCTA S9W1C dishwasher with aquastop. Unfortunately, I tried once to start it with the house water supply closed. Of course it stopped after a few seconds. After that time, when I start it, the water pumps works and after some seconds the cycle stops. It gets no water. I've checked and noticed that no water passes through the aquastop valve. The aqua stop has two wires that get into the dishwasher. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you for your time Alex
