Question about 1995 Pontiac Bonneville

Dishwasher runs but no water is introduced

My dishwasher sounds like it is running, but not water is introduced. Sometimes when you move it through the cycles, like from normal to pots/pans, the water will flow in. However, sometimes, it just runs for 15 minutes and then nothing. I appears that if water has not come in after a period of time, it knows to stop.

There is a water relay valve assembly that will permit water to enter when the cycle calls for it. It sounds as though this is not cycling when asked for. Another cause would be the timer assembly not asking for the relay to cycle. Chase the water relay assembly first.

I am no expert but for what its worth it could be that the water feed is turned off to the machine (this looks like an ordinary tap close to the machine) or there is an acute bend in the feed pipe itself.try pulling it out from its current position and have a look at the pipe or tap..i hope this helps in some way

Ran out of gas wont crank now

You may have introduced air bubbles into your fuel lines. Try cranking while flooring the accelerator all the down. This will sometimes help move the air bubble through.

Could be as simple as "air lock" in the system. Remove the radiator cap. Start the engine. Then use a gloved hand to squeeze on the radiator hoses to see if they are firm and look in the top of the radiator to see if coolant is flowing. Be careful to avoid any moving and hot parts. You may end up having to drain and refill the system. If you haven't done so already, this may be a good time to replace the thermostat as well.

When i floor my 06 150 with 5.4 it misfires or skips or sometimes hesitates

You may need to run some injector cleaner into your fuel system and also might want to put an additive in to burn off in water that has been introduced into to your gas tank via the gas pumps. Also when is the last time the fuel filter was changed?

I have a new world dishwaser flashing e4 what is the problem

you can troubleshoot your dishwasher by
  • First check the manual to see if the machine has a specific troubleshooting guide.
  • Note all sounds or other symptoms the dishwasher shows.
  • Look for some of the more common problems. This includes water temperature deviations, poor washing, failed motor, overflows or leaks or door-latch problems, among others. Anything that can't be dealt with through your troubleshooting guide needs the use of a professional. Check for obvious causes, like blockage in any area or extremely dirty situations affecting water flow

  • you can also always troubleshoot your dishwasher by :

    Instructions Things You'll Need:
    • Dishwashing Detergent
    • Scrub Brushes
    • Steel Wool
    • Steel Wool
    • Screwdriver Sets
    1. Make sure the cord is plugged in and that the breaker hasn't tripped.
    2. Be certain that the door is completely closed and latched.
    3. Check that the cycle button is pushed in all the way.
    4. Check the sprayer arm and filter screen at the bottom. Are they obstructed by a loose piece of silverware or a plastic lid?
    5. Unscrew the cap holding the sprayer arm on; pull it and the screen beneath it out. Use a wire to poke obstructions out of the sprayer arm holes. (Don't use a toothpick because it could break off in the hole.) Scrub the screen with a scrub brush and a little bit of dishwasher detergent.
    6. Eliminate the following as sources of noise: low water pressure keeping the dishwasher from filling, dishes rattling against the sprayer arm or other dishes, loose items tumbling around or trapped in the bottom of the unit.
    7. Take apart the front door panel according to the manufacturer's instructions if the detergent dispenser isn't opening. It may be corroded or have a broken timer lever. If this is the case, rub the corrosion off with steel wool or replace the lever according to the owner's manual

    98 V8 petrol was spewing out water from radiator (but not all the time).We flushed radiator and now wont start at all.It sounds like it trying to start but just won't turn over. What could it be?

    this sounds like you might have a blown head gasket. there has to be a reason that excessive pressure was introduced to the cooling system. i would run a compression test and im certain youll find a couple of cylinders low.

    My dishwasher is full of water when the program finishes

    Assuming the pump is working...

    Is the outlet hose blocked, kinked, or plugged?

    Does the machine drain after the wash cycle/before the rinse? If it does, the controller or timer is malfunctioning. If it doesn't, you need to check the drain valve and solenoid.

    There is a solenoid that is supposed to move a valve to pump the water out of the machine at draining time. Either there is something stuck inside the valve that is preventing it from shifting, the solenoid/wiring is messed up, or the controller is bad.

    Take the panel off the machine below the door. Find the drain hose. Follow that back to where it attaches to the dishwasher. The solenoid and valve is at/near where the hose attaches.

    If there are no obstructions inside the valve you need to check the electric to the solenoid.

    Run the machine and when it gets to the point that it should drain check to see if the solenoid has power to it. If it doesn't you have a wiring or controller problem.

    If the solenoid has power, the solenoid itself is bad. Remove it and take it to your local appliance parts store along with the make and model of the dishwasher.

    Cycle finishes but water is not draining

    Sounds like too much water leftover.

    Give me a make and model number of the dishwasher.

    Check that the drain hose isn't kinked, and that where the drain connects at the garbage disposal at the sink isn't partially clogged. And, is the garbage disposal clean/clear of food stuff's.
    I had a similar thing happen to me a few weeks ago, and it turned out the kitchen sink drain line was clogged.

    Just had a lot of rain. Water was leaking into

    You'll probably find that the alarm control unit got wet - it is sometimes located under the drivers or passengers seat, or under the kickpanels/dash - You may find that it dries up and works OK, or never works right again - I'd recommend fixing the leak first, then moving on to the alarm system... I'd be cautious with introducing H20 to the alarm control unit, as they can disable the vehicle from starting or running...
