Having problems with your Viking 24 in. Professional Series VUD040 Stainless Steel (Premium) Built-in Dishwasher ?

Washer Dishwasher fills with water, wash cycle does not start up. The machine continues to go thru the wash, rinse, cycle, discarding water, filling again, etc. but no water sprays in the machine, Thanks for any help !


Answers :

If I'm not mistaken, these dishwashers are built by Asko for Viking. If thats the case then you probably have a bad circulation pump. Under Asko's warranty (not sure if Viking is the same) these pumps are covered parts and labor for 3 years from installation date, and 5 years for the part only. The pump is accesed from the back of the machine,so you have to pull out the dishwasher. Then you remove the lower plate in the rear and the motor at the very back center is the pump. You remove it by turning it about a 1/4 turn either clockwise or counter clockwise, depending on the style, then place the new one in and turn it to lock it in place, being careful that the sealing oring stays in place or youll get a leak. The part will probably cost you around $150 unless viking marks theirs up more than Asko. Good Luck!

I have a GE Triton XL dishwasher that is not spraying water onto the dishes. I just reset the power, and that didn't help. Putting it on the rinse only or wash cycle fills the bottom with water, but it sounds like a trickle vs. the spray. The heating element comes on and the soap door opens, but there's not spraying. I made sure there was nothing clogging the water line or other parts. What do you think is wrong?

I have a Kitchen Aid Superba KUDS24SEBS1. The inlet water pressure is good and the dishwasher fills and starts the wash cycle, however, after the initial spray of water, it seems that all of the water drains out and there is nothing left to continue the cycle and wash the dishes. It's like it's not able to fill up enough to wash the dishes.


When "full" of water, the normal height of level is about 1/2 below the heater assy(large blackish grey coil below he spray arm).. if theres enough water in the unit nad its still not "spraying",its quite possible that your filter/chopper assy is cl ... Dishwashers

ASKO 1885 Built-in Dishwasher: The water sump fills normally, but the wash cycle does not start. Althought the timer seems to work, the wash cycle motor won't start up in any wash or rinse selection. The spray arms do not spin - no water is being pumped. At the end of the wash cycle time, the water will empty out of the sump. Thank you. TB

Dishwasher fills with water, but spray arms don't spray water or spin. As the cycle moves forward, water is eventaully pumped out (so the pump is working). i've selected different cycles with the knob on the front of the machine but they all work the same.... no swishing with the spray arms. When the cancel button is pushed, the water is pumped out... as it should. Thanks for the help.

When dishwasher is turned on to the cycle mode - it fills with water - heater heats water to the proper temp - pump starts - washer goes through it's complete cycle - even pumping out the wash water and the drying cycle,then shuts down. the problem is that it does not circulate the wash water thru. the spray heads-even though the circ,pump is running.Even though the unit is 8 yrs.old and hasn't run for 6 yrs,my wife&i do our dishes by hand. our unit is a GU1200XTKB0 Serial# FL4617501

Dishwasher wont fill with water. just before it stopped filling i was turning the dial (a lot) between the wash cycles back and forth to attempt to get it to fill and drain (I didn't let it go through a cycle). We also removed the hose from the machine as it had split and replaced it and we had the machine tilted on it's side. the dial still clicks round but it sounds like the pump is going and it doesn't seem to be filling with water.

Yes I have a whirlpool DU1345XTVB1 dishwasher. Just got in July. After each wash cycle the dishes are not dry. I have been using Finish gelpacs w/jetdry & also have a off brand drying agent in reservior to help dry dishes. The water temperature is set pretty hot & washer is draining good. I have tried checking wash cycle a few minutes into 1st cycle to see if water is in filling & heating. Didn't know if maybe heating element going out or thermostat not working? Thank you for your time.

My ariston lsv 66 dishwasher will not start washing cycle. It makes the pumping noise as it normally does at the start of the cycle and some water enters the bottom of the machine but then it stops. I have checked to make sure that there are no leaks so the problem is with the filling up of the machine. I live in a hard water area and haven't used anything to help reduce the limescale so expect this to be playing a part. I have tried all the washing cycles but the same thing happens. Any advic

Bosch Integra SHU 9955US/12 - when we start wash cycle, the detergent dispenses and the tub fills with water, but the wash cycle never starts (never spins spray bars). Seems like timer is counting down, though, but doesn't start "washing". After waiting awhile, we are able to use the "Cancel/Drain" mode to drain the water. The drain filter in the bottom of the tub is clean.


Sounds like your motor is burned out. The drain motor and wash motor are seperate on your machine. You can check for power going to the motor, but to do this you might have to pull the dishwasher out. While the cycle is running check for 120 VAC g ... Bosch SHU9955UC Built-in Dishwasher

Kenmore Dishwasher model 665.1675592 doesn't seem to wash as well as it used to. Seems to have a low water level. Filler valve works, allows water in, but never seems to fill enough. No spray reaches top shelf, I think due to insufficient water level. It's like the timer doesn't stay on long enough for it to fill. Also cycle time seems WAY up, but if the timer is slow, how does it time out filling so fast? Looks like it would be slow all the time. Suggestions?

I have the Siemens SL84A305UC Dishwasher. All of a sudden it stopped cleaning dishes, but everything sounds normal and it fills and drains water, and sounds like it is completing the cycle. In the past when I opened the door while it was actively washing the water would spray out aggressively. Now, when I opened it while it was supposed to be washing I see just a small amount of water coming from the bottom wash blade, and not even enough to turn the blade very far. I thought it was just a c

It is not pumping water into the spray arm to wash the dishes. I can get it to fill with water and drain the water, but when it fills and the cycle timer starts, nothing happens, and a slight burning smell occurs. Does this model have a reversable pump or a direct drive? I am thinking this is where i need to start.

I always run the hot water through the tap first. Oddly, the machine operates just fine in the Antibacterial Wash setting. Help would be greatly appreciated.

My Kenmore ultra wash dishwasher fills with a little bit of water but does not spray water and does not proceed through the wash cycle. Any advice? We had problems yesterday with blinking lights and not able to get anything to work except the drain. then we followed a sequence of pushing buttons and it solved the first problem.


The spray arm rotates based on the water pressure coming out of them. If no water pressure, then no rotation. You probably have a clog on the intake hose. You can pull out the dishwasher, tip it forward so you can get to the bottom and then rem ... Kenmore Dishwashers
