  1. the water does not get into the dishwasher open the dishwasher 3-4\015\012 times during cycle, you should see some water at least once, if not - check \015\012water valve, water level float and water pressure.
  2. \015\012
  3. the pump is clogged - there is water, the motor will run but no water is circulated. Check pump filters, check chopper and impeller.
  4. \015\012
  5. motor in main pump is not working - could be caused by something \015\012stuck on the impeller or chopper or could be a problem with the motor \015\012itself or control board. Check if line voltage is coming to the motor \015\012during wash/rinse cycle.

When starting a wash cycle it pumps out the remaining water as usual. It fills normally but does not pump/wash the dishes. It continues to heat and when first noticed it seemed to have gone through the complete cycle but didn't wash. The detergent door had opened and the soap pack dropped out but it never dissolved. The dishes were extremely hot too. Is the same pump used to both drain the washer and wash the dishes?

Re:dishwasher My dishwasher was working perfect. Now, everytime the cycle is done, the detergent door is open but the detergent is sitting right there. I was using the electrosol gel pack which was working great. Now, the gel pack is sitting there when i open it. On the bottom is of the dishwasher is a lot of sand-like particles. I clean this out everytime. I haven't changed anything and am wondering why, all of a sudden, it stopped working. I've had this less than a year. Thanks.

The detergent dispenser opens but the cascade packet does not fall out and dissolve. Even when I used granulated detergent, sometimes it was coagulated in the soap cup at the end of the cycle - not dissolved.

The machine works fine, but about one out of every 4 or 5 times it is run, the detergent remains in the dispenser. The dispenser door has opened and the detergent is hard packed from having gotten wet. It seems like whatever is supposed to cause the detergent to be flushed out of the dispenser is not happening. Am I loading the dishwaher is such a way that the detergent is not getting out?

The dishwasher detergent is not dissolving. There is rinse aid in the dispenser - sometimes the door opens and the detergent comes out and sometimes it doesn't. If the detergent does come out then it is just sitting in the rack - should it drop to the bottom of the dishwasher? I have checked the door cleaned out around it to make sure the hook and release are working. I opened the door and the water is hot.

Our top rack is not getting cleaned at all-- although the rinser seems to spin freely when pushed, and fits correctly into the hole back. We were using powder detergent, and a little residue was always left in the compartment. So we tried liquid detergent, to see if it would help, and now it seems like almost none of the detergent is dissolving out, at all. The compartment's full and a goopy mess after each cycle. So now the bottom rack isn't very clean, either! Please advise. Thanks!
