Having problems with your KitchenAid Dishwashers ?

Only motor goes on, no water

\015 When I turn on my KitchenAid dishwasher only the motor goes on, no water fills in. This started only happening sometimes and I thought I wasn't pressing the right buttons. Now I can't get any water to fill the dishwasher for the wash.\015

Champion dishwasher we have a champion freestanding dishwasher at my church. after the cycle is completed, the pressure guage behind the washer still shows 25-30 and it contnues to spray water. not forced by the motor, but more like a stuck open fill valve. if i turn off the water and run it, then turn the water back on, the valve is closed and does not let water freely in. butif i run it with the water on, it will continue to spray in freely after the cycle light goes out and you open the door.


If you turn the unit off from the circuit breaker will the water still run?if so the guts inside the solenoid valve are worn.you can call champion and get a kit to replace the worn parts and its not difficult to do.hope this helps. ... Dishwashers

Humming noise i have a GE nautilus GSD2200 model which has not been used more than 4 years that is giving me trouble.  it's making a loud humming noise (the noise comes and goes, comes and goes) which seems to be coming from the motor area at the bottom of the unit.  I stopped it in the middle of the cycle, but the water seems to be stagnant at the bottom.  any suggestion on fixing the problem myself?

We have a Whirlpool dish washer; model#: DU810SWPQ0. It starts, water goes in and it heats up but doesn't wash anything. The spiral jet sprayer doesn't do anything. It sounds like the motor just clicks but doesn't do anything either. Water is not draining at the end of cycle either.

I have a GE potscrubber Dishwasher Model # GSD3630ZZ3WW it has been leaking from the bottom for about a week.

Kenmore Model 1590 Dishwasher, 1985, sitting unused since about 1994. Takes water into tub but never goes through any washing/rinsing cycles; water stands in bottom (I stop it below door level). A click, like a solenoid activation from the timer area, but motor never does anything. Removed the shroud covering what I assume is the impeller, which was stuck, but freed it by turning several times...made no difference. Suggestions??

Kenmore dishwasher fills with hot water but will not wash, just a faint hum. goes through cycle, drains fine, like motor doesn't turn on.


The faint "hum" sound is your wash motor trying to turn on. You either have a piece of glass/tooth pick/ ect.. or a worn out bearing. Its time to change your wash motor. If you do a DIY you can save money over having a service man come out and charg ... Kenmore Dishwashers

I have a'05 Kenmore Elite dishwasher. Never had a problem before. The clean button keeps flashing. Thought it was an interrupted cycle so I pressed the "Cancel/Drain" button and the motor ran, no water. Once that was done, I tried to start a new cycle and every time I push start, the green clean light flashes and the "Start" button goes off. Any help. Really don't want a repair guy.

Grinding The situation: I have had my Whirlpool DU915PWPB1 for 2 1/2 years, it isn't the greatest dishwasher but does the job good enough. Recently, the water will fill, the washing cycle will run but then when that part stops it goes into a whirring that seems like a motor is going but nothing is moving. I have removed the Filter Modual in an attempt to find out what the grinding would be. There doesn't seem to have anything in the way or under the filter. I have ascertained that the grin

WP DW Mod # GU1200XTLS0: this unit filled with water and just stopped running. I have power to the unit. The control panel does not light up at all. Its wierd that I have power to the board and all the wires seem to have power! No burnt spots and no burnt smell on the board.Hmmm! Door latch and switches all check ok. Oddly it seems like the line power to DW goes all the way thru the unit and back through the nutural wire. Could the motor windings be burnt out?

Dishwasher fills with hot water. Float OK - water feed stops when full. Motor humms but no water spray (in all opperating modes). Cancel selection (with cancel button) and close the door. The water drains then the unit shuts off. Water feed OK. Drain Cycle OK. Looks like spray pump hung but do not know. Cannot find a reset button (as with disposal) or way to free hung pump motor. I did see glass pieces in the drain. Possibly a small piece hanging the motor.


If you found broken glass inside the machine some has likely migrated to the pump. about the only way to fix that issue is to remove the pump and either replace it or disassemble it and clean it out. ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDP01FL Built-in Dishwasher

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. You need to unscrew the wate ... Hotpoint 24 in. HDA1000Z Built-in Dishwasher
