Hi,

You need to check the following :-

\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012Water-inlet valve\015\012\015\012The\015\012water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is\015\012defective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually located\015\012behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the\015\012device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a\015\012rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it.

\015\012\015\012\015\012Float switch\015\012\015\012The\015\012float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below\015\012the dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of the\015\012dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills the\015\012dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets\015\012caught or trapped in the raised position, the water can't enter the\015\012dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Dishwasher is 16 months old. Recently, it won't get tea stains from spoons or cups and there is a white film on plastics. I have run unit once with vinegar. I tried using less detergent and no change (Cascade Complete). (Neighbors using same detergnet on different machine with no problems so it's not the water.) I always select High water temp and air dry on normanl wash. My hunch is that the motor is going bad and therefore it is not pushing the water with enough force.

Dishes and the dishwasher look dirty after they run, like it redistributed dirty water. The door is very dirty/filmy except right under the soap dispenser, like someone squirted dirty water on it but wiped right under the soap dispenser. If I run it a second time with vinegar it gets clean, but that is crazy, esp since it takes 2 1/2 hours a load. I have 2 of them and both are doing it. I have changed soaps, added more soap, used less soap, pre-rinsed dishes, put them in filthy, used jet-dry, no

Dishwasher I have a whirlpool dishwasher that does not appear to be getting hot water. The washer water is cold initially and only seems to get warm once the heater in the base of the machine heats it. The hot water supply line does not get hot so I presume no water is being supplied. Is the water supposed to be hot at the start. If yes could this be caused be a faulty inlet valve and if so how can I check. The dishes are dirty especially on the top rack. Thanks for your help.

Our Whirlpool KUDP01ILBS2 dishwasher isn't working like it used to. Dishes seem to be getting partially clean, they aren't getting dry at all and it seems they may be being rinsed/washed with dirty water. There is plenty of water in the machine when I interupt the cleaning cycle. I always run the hot water in the sink before I start the dishwasher so the first water into the dishwasher is as hot as possible. Also the sani-rinse light is flashing when the cycle "completes".

I have a Delonghi dishwasher, it's a stand alone, like a washing machine. The water inlet is connected to the hot water tap, normally used for a washing machine. When we first started using the dishwasher, we kept getting the E4 error message, we reduced the water inlet pressure by turning down the tap, that worked for a while. Just a while ago, we started getting the E4 error message again, not sure we can turn down the tap any further without cutting the water off completely. Do you have a

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

It appears that the dishwasher is not getting enough water.
