Having problems with your Maytag Dishwashers ?

Dishwasher will not fill with water. What could be the problem?


Answers :

Our problem was the door latch spring. The spring had moved down and wasn't holding the plastic plunger piece that activates the micro switches. It probably had a lot to do with the mrs slamming the door shut. We've had to do that since day one with this dishwasher installed new. Thanks to this site for pointing me in the right direction!

Miele dishwasher makes grinding noise when turned on, there is a light on front next to inlet/drain. So I poured some boiling water into the dishwasher and then left it turned on and could feel the boiling water coming out of the drain hose so I am assuming it is an inlet problem, as it will drain but will not fill or otherwise work.There are a few small cracks in the outer hose of he inlet hose just below the grey box thing, could that be enough to cause the problem? They are only small so I di

The dishwasher won't fill with water. We took the water inlet valve off and cleaned the filter screen. The dishwasher worked about 2 times and started doing the same thing. We then replaced the water inlet valve and again, the dishwasher worked a couple of times and now we're back to it not filling again. What could the problem be?

Our GE dishwasher (5 yrs old, Model GLD4250L00CS) only fills with water half way when the unit is started. The inlet valve was replaced with a new one, but that did not solve the problem. When started, the dishwasher fill cycle runs for 41 seconds before the wash cycle begins. Repair workers told us we probably need a new ECU (Electronic Computer Unit). My questions are: Is 41 seconds the correct time for the fill cycle for our model? What else could be the reason for the unit not filling pr

Dishwasher problem Indesit 320 dishwasher will not run through the program. It fills up starts washing, & continues washing. Fills with water & will not empty or dry.

Hi, I have a Miele G681 dish washer with an intake/drain light problem. I've read all posts about similar problems I could find both on this forum and others but I'm afraid I still can't figure my problem out.

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

Kenmore dishwasher. The upper rack is not getting clean. Even very light residue remains. And, detergent is left in door at end of cycle. The bottom is filling up, so I don't think it's the intake valve. Also, all the blade openings appear clear. I am noticing that hot water is not filling the dishwasher when I first run the cycle. Even if I have hot water running in the sink, the dishwasher fills with cold or warm water. So, I think this is the problem. What should I do? Thank you in advance!


I find it odd that the dishwasher is filling with cold water if the water is hot at the sink. It sounds like the dishwasher is connected to the cold water line rather than the hot. Check under your sink; if you've got standard plumbing, the dishwas ... Dishwashers

I have a Beko DWD5410W dishwasher. It has been working well for a couple of years now. Last week is stopped during a wash cycle and now when you switch it on, it fills with water to the top of the filters (as normal?) and stops. Nothing further happens no matter how long I wait unless I switch the machine to drain mode. Do you have any idea what the problem could be or how I can go about investigating further?

Tank temp Our School Dist. has a Hobart dishwasher Model AM 15 T. After filling the unit it reaches a tank temp. of approx. 160 F, but when it is run through a couple cycles the temp. falls below 140 F, the min. wash temp is 150 F. The supply from the hot water tank is approx. 140 F. The rinse cycle reaches well above the 180 F min.

Item: Whirlpool Ultra Dishwasher Age: 3 yrs Problem: Not enough water to effectively wash the dishes. State: When the dishwasher is started, the fill valve opens as normal. Only about 1/2 the amount of water is let in when the pump turns on and the washing cycle begins. Opening the door shows that the water level does not reach the bottom of the float.
