\015\012\015\012When the\015\012Dishwasher is not filling in, you'll need to check for the water inlet valve,\015\012the filter screen and the float switch/assembly. Also check for the float\015\012assembly inside the dishwasher. When water is filling your dishwasher, a float\015\012rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it\015\012shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can\015\012get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your\015\012dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on\015\012other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the\015\012dishwasher for any blockages.
\015\012If these are fine then it's due to Water Inlet Valve. Use a multimeter and\015\012check for the continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the\015\012multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly.

Hope\015\012this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

A GE triton dishwasher causes hammer noise when stops filling. The sink faucet works fine as do all the other faucets in the house. I cleaned all of the traps in the dishwasher. Because the sink works, I don't think it is a sink valve problem. I turned off the water to the house and drained the system, the air chambers should be good. Is there some component of the dishwasher that could be causing the noise? Would cleaning the pump help? If so, how would I do that?


The cause of the hammering noise, (slamming) is due to the water inlet valve on the Dishwasher (DW) shutting off abrutly once the DW reaches the proper amount of water.\015\012\015\012If this is an older DW, you might want to replace the ... GE Dishwashers

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

We just bought a house, and it has a Danby WWD1802W dishwasher. My husband turned on the water supply to it and plugged it in. It sounds like it is on, but it won't fill with water. The water is not working in the dishwasher. What could be the cause?

Water from my disposal backs up into my hotpoint ($300-model) dishwasher. The dishwasher works fine otherwise. Is there a one way valve in the diswasher that is suppose to prevent reverse flow and/or is there other dishwasher motor problems which could cause this. Actually the Hotpoint Model number is HDA3600N00BB but this website did not recognize that model number so I put in the closest model number closest to mine.


If it's what I think, it's a simple fix. Does your dishwasher drain run along the floor of the cabinet, then up to the disposal? (my guess is yes). There should be an "air gap" between the disposal and dishwasher, this means when it comes out of th ... Hotpoint 24 in. HDA3400G Built-in Dishwasher

Hello, Im trying to diagnose poor cleaning of glasses in the top rack of my Fridigaire FDB751SCB0. everything seems to work fine but while testing I noticed the upper arm isn't spinning. the lower arm is. i believe the pump is working as water is spayed everywhere inside but no matter which position I leave the upper arm in, I find it in the same place when I open the door. what could cause the upper arm to not get water preventing it from spining?

Something is causing the DW motor not to fire (so water is not sprayed around). It fills fine. It drains fine. I've tested the motor - it also works. I've tried all the various cycle choices; all do the same thing. Water fills but is not pushed around the tub (absolutely no motion from the motor, whatsoever). There was some debri down in the bottom, but I've cleaned it all out, wiped everything clean, and still no motor activation.
