Having problems with your LG Dishwashers ?

Hi, I installed LG dishwasher, control board is working, water is coming from the water line but when hooked up to the dishwasher and dishwasher is on, there is no water coming into the dishwasher....


Answers :

It should drain a bit of water out before it fills when it first starts. if that water doesn't drain out then you may have a drain pump fault. You can test this by dumping a few glasses of water into the machine then starting it up ( you should hear it drain that water out)
if that worked... then you have a fill solenoid fault or a line filter fault.You can check power to the fill solenoid or give it a couple of taps when its suppose to be filling to see if its just stuck. the inline filter could be plugged where you hook up the water supply to the machine (clean it or take it right out)

My plumber just installed a new water supply line for my dishwasher. Now the pump comes on but no water fills up in the machine. If I fill the bottom of the unit with water, it works just fine. Even though the water supply is ON, it does not pump water into the 'box'. Thanks, Art


You don't know how many times I've heard and found the shutoff valve off or partly turned off. Water entering DW is from line pressure not pumping. Items to suspect (again) the water supply valve (would'nt be the first time a new valve is bad). The ... Whirlpool 24 in. DU915QW Built-in Dishwasher

No water is coming thru the water valve to fill the dishwasher. The water is turned on. I had a Kenmore portable dishwasher and we just converted it to a built-in. The electricity is on and the water line installed. When I turn on the dishwasher, it comes on ok but no water is coming into the machine.


Most probable cause a faulty intake solenoid. OK start simple and go from there.If your have power and light etc come on then we know you are good for power. I'll assume that is OK. If\012you are not getting any li ... Dishwashers

Water does not come into the dishwasher. can hear the pump, the heater works, the indicator lites illuminate, but water does not come in. The water supply is hooked up and turned on, there is good flow to dishwasher connection, but no water inside the dishwasher during operation.

Model FDB4315LFC2 Serial TH80658596 It is only 20 months old but Does not load with water. I have checked water line into white valve and water is flowing, but it does not come into the dishwasher. If I manually put water in the bottom of the dishwasher it works fine through the cycle until it is time to pump in more water. There is a sound but no water comes through the valve.

My 2-year-old LG Dishwasher doesn't clean the dishes well any more. It used to work great, I was very happy with it. For some unknown reason it doesn't work that way any more. The dishes come out dirtier then they were before I put them in. I had three guys come in and look at it and they all said that there is nothing wrong with my dishwasher. My water heater is 1 year old, works great everywhere else in the house, the dishwasher is hooked up the right way, by a professional, I don't have hard

Just had a Bosch dishwasher installed in my new kitchen. The plumber who installed it ran it and it worked. Now we cannot get it to run. We have tried everything. Restarted several times, turned the circuit breaker off and on, changed the cycle and nothing works. The light comes on but it does not get water or run. What are we doing wrong. The dishwasher is brand new out of box but we bought it 4 years ago and remodeling was delayed. Model #SHU5314UC/U06 FD#8001


Test the door switch. It can be faulty or misaligned. You can also check the back of the unit and/or remove the rear panel and take a look at the thermal fuse. It may be bad not allowing enough current flow to operate the machine. ... Bosch SHU5316UC Dishwasher

My dishwasher was recently 'installed'. i don't know if the contractor made a mistake or if the water valve is not turned on, but the cycle tries to start but then no water is flowing into the dishwasher. everything appears to be hooked up, but I think it's the water issue b/c i also have a new refrigerator and the water dispenser/ice maker does not work because no water is flowing into the fridge either.


This sure sounds like a water valve issue, for sure. You will have to trace out the lines (not easy, but possible) and figure out where the valve is. They usually turn left to open, and right to close. I would call the contractor and tell them ... Frigidaire Professional Series 24 in. Built-In Dishwasher Dishwasher

Installing a built-in LG dishwasher; got everything ready to go, but a problem with the hot water line coming in. It is barely long enough to reach to the front where I've installed the elbow. Since I have to back the dishwasher in to the 24 in. hole there is no room for error in terms of not running over this hose with the bottom of the dishwasher. Any tricks to handling this situation?


Hi, best way would be to install a "spring" attached to the back of the dishwasher. The hose would connect to that and easily "pull-away" when moving or "pull-tight" taking up the slack. A much simpler method is to tie a piece of string to the hot wa ... Kenmore 24 in. 17482 / 17484 / 17489 Built-in Dishwasher

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.

I just installed a new Whirlpool dishwasher (model DU1301XTV) and have run three loads. Each time, the glasses, silverware, and plastic, come out with white, chalky residue. There are also water spots. I have tried it with both Cascade detergent, and with a Quantum Finish tablet. I have also filled the reservoir with Jet Dry. Do I have a defective dishwasher? Do I have a clogged line?

You will need to disassemble the bottom part where the bottom rotary spray nozzle is(the part that shoots water upwards). The impeller might have come loose or it is clogged in that area. ... Hotpoint Dishwashers

We purchased an Electrolux Dishwasher Model #EWDW6505GBO, installed on 8/3/10, and we are very dissatisfied with it, as it just does not wash the dishes clean. We have had G.E. Dishwashers, two, since 1961, and then a Bosch, and they have all worked well. It appears that the water is not getting to the top and/or properly rinsing them. We rinse everything prior to putting the dishes in, but coffee cups come out with the ring around the top. The soap doesn't fully disolve. We have tried doub

My first question is the dishes are not coming out clean. When it was installed they said not to hook it up to the aireator on top of the sink. Is that correct even though in California it is code. We have hard water and that's why we bought this dishwasher. I have changed detergents and that still doesn't help. There is food left on them along with white stuff. help. the dishwasher was bought 12/2010.

There are two hoses coming from my Bosch SHE45M06UC dishwasher. One is obviously the drain coming from the back of the unit, and the other is attached to the side looped and not connected to anything. I went online to the Bosch website for a installation manual and it describes this hose as a air venting hose. Does the end attach anywhere or does it just hang loose on the unit. My husband detached it from its original position and thought it was part of the water line. HELP!


Many people realize the dishwasher connects to a little hose on the sink, it is called an air gap. However, many people wonder " The air gap is there to prevent the water from being siphoned out of the dishwasher. When water flows through the drain ... Bosch Dishwashers

I have a Bosch SHX98M dishwasher and the top arm will not rotate. I can see water coming out of the holes when open during a cycle and I have made sure there are no obstruction for the arm or anything stuck in the arm feed line. I just had a technician here who was at a loss and did not think the pump was bad since alot of water is being pushed around inside. The bottom arm works fine.

The dishwasher was recently removed for floor refinishing and reinstalled. The bottom rotor works but the top rotor does not. I asked the re-installer, who worked for the moving company, if he had connected everything properly and he said there was just one water line going into the machine and assured me he had connected it properly. Is there something else that needs to be done to make the top rotor operational? Thanks. John M

I removed an old dishwasher and replaced it with this GE 24" Profile GSD533ODO1WW unit. It seems to run through the cycles like it should but it doesn't seem to run any water for some reason. I hooked up a new water line to it and turned it on. There where no leaks that I could see. Is there any installation manual that you could send me to make sure that I didn't miss anything or is there anything that you can tell me that I should look for? Thanks, Jesse
