It sounds like your washer is not getting enough water to start. If your washing machine is filling too slowly or not at all, then you probably have a clogged screen on the back of your washer. To check this:
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. Turn off the water supplies(both hot and cold).
  2. \015\012
  3. Remove the hoses at the back of the washer. Check the screens for debris(i.e. rust, dirt, scale, etc.) The screens will be pushed into the back of the washer where the water enters the washer. Debris can come from a variety of places: #1 Deposits coming off the sides of your pipes.(Older homes) #2 Repairs done to your plumbing lines, or the cities lines.
  4. \015\012
  5. If these screens are clear of debris, I would then check the water flow out of the hoses. Take each hose with the end pointing into a bucket, and turn on the water to allow a full flow. This will also flush each line of debris.
  6. \015\012
  7. Reinstall the hoses and turn on the water supplies.
\015\012There could also be a number of reasons that there would not be full flow out of the supply lines: #1 Debris stopping up the line at the shut-off is one of the main causes.

If you have debris stopping up your screens and shut-offs, it will most likely stop up your aerators on your faucets, and your shower heads too. It is also suggested that you check these.

If you are getting debris in all these items, I would recommend that your lines get flushed. You can do this, but many times it is easier to have a plumber do this. If you do not know what you are doing, it can get very wet, and time consuming.

We've got Beko DE 2542 FW Slimline dishwasher. Everything switches on as it is supposed to but nothing happens. Rinse aid and Salt indicator red light is not on, because we've filled them up. Switched on dishwasher, green light for "On" comes on. Selected programme level, pressed start. Green light comes on for "Wash" Nothing happens - we've left it overnight but nothing happens. What seems to be the problem? Look forward to hearing the solution.

My Whirlpool Dishwasher ADP931 has stopped working. It stopped in the middle of the cycle with 2 to 3 inches of water on the floor of the compartment. I mopped out the water and tried to restart the dishwasher. The green "on" light now comes on when I press the start button. but nothing happens (no motor comes on,no water enters).Repeating the above action several times does not help the washer to restart even though the other function lights will come on when the knob is turned. saturn1914

My GSD3600 GE Dishwasher will not finish/start a cycle. The washer filled with water and during the cycle I heard a pop like someone knocked something over in the kitchen. I smelled an electrical burning smell. All the lights and the buttons work on the front panel, but when I try to start I hear an electrical buzz like it is trying to start, but nothing happens and after 3 seconds the electrical buzzing stops and the lights on the panel flash. I removed the dishwasher and found that when I hit

Dishwasher malfunction I have a Kenmore Ultra Wash Quiet Guard 3 dishwasher. One day, I found it with a blinking green ?clean? light. I went online to search for the manual, almost impossible to locate. Found a website where another using said to hit a 4 button sequence of ?heated dry? ?normal wash? ?heated dry? and normal wash. After this sequence, all lights went on and something that looked almost like a ?demo? sequence began (not sure now what that was). I hit ?cancel/drain? and it proceeded

Fills and heats water properly, then buzzing noise heard for a ling time and then it drains the water out, with out circulating the water into the washer arms, etc. Any guesses? Could something have gotten lodged in the pump during transport?
