Dishwasher wont fill with water. just before it stopped filling i was turning the dial (a lot) between the wash cycles back and forth to attempt to get it to fill and drain (I didn't let it go through a cycle). We also removed the hose from the machine as it had split and replaced it and we had the machine tilted on it's side. the dial still clicks round but it sounds like the pump is going and it doesn't seem to be filling with water.

Our kitchen drain clogged recently and water drained back into our VUD141 dishwasher. A plumber cleared the drain, and turned on the DW - which pumped out the standing water. But now, we have no water flowing into the dishwasher. The drain pumps, the heater works, but there's no water supply. The plumber who cleared the drain said he didn't DO dishwashers, and I cannot locate the owner's manual since we prepared for a move.

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 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

Miele dishwasher makes grinding noise when turned on, there is a light on front next to inlet/drain. So I poured some boiling water into the dishwasher and then left it turned on and could feel the boiling water coming out of the drain hose so I am assuming it is an inlet problem, as it will drain but will not fill or otherwise work.There are a few small cracks in the outer hose of he inlet hose just below the grey box thing, could that be enough to cause the problem? They are only small so I di

Shu9925uc/14 bosch dishwasher leaves standing water in the bottom of the pump. The pump seems to be bad because it wont drain out the back hose. I have run the diswasher full cycle and put the drain hose into the sink to test. It wont drain at all now and I dont hear the pump. Perhaps unrelated: Pump seemed to stop working after the back hose disconnected itself from the back of the unit spilling water all over the floor. When I reconnected the unit to the wall the pump now seems to be disfunct

I have a zanussi ZSF2440 dishwasher, when it turned on by the power button on the front you can choose a cycle and start it, Once the cycle is started it fills up with water but doesn't stop until it over flows setting off the flood protection, which cuts the power, so all the lights on the display go off and stops the water flow and drains the dishwasher and keeps draining the dish washer while the flood protection is on.

Disposal plugged up and water backed up into dishwasher. Cleared disposal and dishwasher drain line. Checked around sump but dishwasher won't pump out. Sounds like pump is trying to run. I can blow air through the drain hose from the disposal and get bubbles in the water. Turned off breaker for 1 min. then tried reset. Can hear pump humming.
