Having problems with your Whirlpool 24 in. DU900PCD Built-in Dishwasher ?

Solution for "how do you determine if the pump is working versus the water valve needing replaced"

Answers :

Make sure the water is turned on to the machine.
Set the machine to start the cycle. Put a volt meter on the water valve terminals. At the fill portion of the cycle you will read 120 volts at these terminals. If you read 120 volts and no fill, the water valve is bad. If you do not read 120 volts, the timer is bad.
Fill the tub with water using a pot. Set the machine at the pump out cycle. If it pumps out, the pump is good.
If it does not pump out it could be a bad pump or bad timer.

GE Dishwasher model PDW8200J03BB stopped draining. Removed the drain pump, checked with Voltmeter and there is resistance on ohms X10 of about 3. The flap is in place so water isn't shooting back into the sump inlet. Replaced the sump inlet about 6 months ago because it was deteriorated due to hard water. Pump worked fine after that. Checked drain hoses and air gap. Was able to blow water through. Pump only trickles water out at air gap. Does the pump need replaced?

Clear the line from the air gap to the drain,, if the rest is clear the only thing it can be is the propellers on the pump, i which case you will need to change the pump ... GE 25 in. Profile PDW8200J Built-in Dishwasher

Troy-Bilt 2550 20293 pressure washer not producing pressure. Worked when last used 2 months ago. Pump pistons are moving up and down when engine is pulled through. Inlet water is flowing through pump but no pressure when engine is started. I have the same problem. Water flows thru the pump when not running, but no flow or goes in by-pass mode when I start the pump. The pump being Troy Bilt Model 020296-01. I replaced unloader valve even. Anything else I can do?

You replaced the unloaded valve. Are you positive you have the unloader screwed to pressure and not turned the opposite way? You will have no pressure if it is adjusted wrong. One other thing I have encountered is that the unloader has a ball bearing ... Pressure Washers

My dishwasher works except is does not appear to be getting water. David psr responded: Most likely the water valve is defective or stopped up with calcium deposits. In either event, you probably need to replace the water fill valve. Not a terribly expensive nor difficult job on most dishwashers. Do I call a plumber, appliance store repair department or look for a local handy man?

I agree that the fill valve may be bad or clogged. You can fairly easily remove the valve yourself if you are somewhat handy and then take it apart and clean it. I doubt if the old valve is electrically shot but it is possible. Cleaning it out may ... GE Dishwashers

Dishwasher overflows I have a Maytag PDB3600AWX dishwasher. The pump works well, pumps all water out of the tub when reaching the appropriate cycle state. However, it keeps taking in water when it's not running / turned on (e.g., overnight) and the tub starts overflowing, cuasing obvious leakages (to the basement). What part needs to be replaced? Thanks, C Artz

Sounds like you've got a problem with the water intake valve(s). If it takes on water without water running in the sink, that is where I would look. If it happens when you use the sink, then I would also check your drain hose placement ... Dishwashers

G.E. GSD5130 When the dishwasher is pumping out the water a small amount comes in the rotating sprayer head. At the end of the cycle the dishwasher still has water in the bottom. The amount of water varies from just a little to over an inch. I replaced the spring loaded check valve a couple of months earlier and everything worked fine until now. What should I check? Thankyou.

Mike, I just ran into the same problem. I found a second check valve located in the outlet hose of the ELECTRIC drain motor. This motor is located at the right rear underside of d/w and is used only for backflush of the filter. When the unit goes th ... GE GSD5130 Dishwasher

So I found this power washer for sale. The seller claims that the washer generates a good stream of water, not just full power. He also mentions that after a few minutes the engine starts to bog down like it is working extra hard. Does this sound like a pump issue? Could something be clogged or would the pump need to be replaced? Or should I avoid this power washer?

Don't buy a power that doesn't work.There are many expensive parts on a power washer. If it was cheap and simple to fix, the seller would fix it and the washer would not be for sale.Would you buy a car that doesn't work? Especially ... Pressure Washers

Magic Chef DU55CA-01 unit runs but when pump kicks on for discharge cyle water leaks on the floor from the what appears to be the solenoid part. The leaking stops as soon as the pump turns off.

RY80940 The valve under the pump is leaking. I think it is a pressure release valve but I am not sure. I tightened it when I had to re attach two bolts that were holding the motor on the metal case then it worked for awhile then it started to leak and I lost all power. Should I tighten or loosen it or is there a washer that needs to be replaced?

Neff Dishwasher Hi; I have a Neff slimline Dishwasher that won't fill with water but works ok if I fill with a bucket. I have searched the net and found that it probably has either a stuck float or a faulty inlet valve. The probelm is I can't find these things. Should I pull it out and turn it upside down or what? And if I do need to replace one of these where can I get them from? I have tried a search online but can't find them.

Asko 1555 Dishwasher will not drain. Bottom of kick panel pan will fill with water triping the float switch?, leaving an error code. Is it safe to assume that the out pump needs replacing. I had the kick panel off and smacked the motor housing a few times and it ran for a few loads, but is now again stopped working.

It might be the pump, or it might be an obstruction elsewhere. If you have an air gap on your sink/counter top, open it and check for debris. If it is clear, unscrew the main filter basket. There is a black plug on the left side of the bottom well ... Dishwashers

Bosch dishwasher (SXH55MO6UC/46): The power comes on and runs normal, but no water is coming into the unit. I was told that it was a water inlet valve that needs to be replaced (part #263833). I need to know if this is what needs to be replaced and if so, is this something that I can do or do I need an expert repair service to do it? If it is something that I can do, I need instructions. I am handy, but this is something that I have not done before, Thank you, Craig Covey

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?

Check the float assembly, that will trip and stop water from coming in. May have soap or grime holding it up. ... GE 24 in. GLD6260LSS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
