I have a Kenmore dishwasher , Model # 363.14375790, Serial #FT331026R. When I turn it to "Start" it does start, but no water goes into the tub. I haven't had to use it for a while. I read the owners manual for :"Dishwasher will not fill with water"& the Water inlet valve is not clogged , I'm not turning the dial too far. Could you tell me what to do. This happened once before & the repair man took off the bottom panel & turned something. Help Me!!!

Re: Dishwasher not working
Difficult to say for certain exactly what will fix your problem but it is not out of the realm of possibility that the inlet valve is sticking closed.. The repairman may have given it a tap to free it up so that when it was energized.. it opened and let water in for the wash cycle..Just because that valve wasn't clogged doesn't mean it wouldn't stick.. If you can access it .. try giving it a light tap on the housing when the DW is cycling.. Hope that gets you going..

Kenmore Dishwasher Error Code = Start Resume light blinking slow
When the dishwasher door opens or electrical power is removed during the cycle then the dishwasher will not start again. The door is detected as being closed and the Start Resume button is being pressed Kenmore Dishwasher Error Code = Clean light is blinking 7 times
Heater circuit fail. Control panel did not detect the water getting hot. Did not detect heating element was energized to heat the water during the wash cycle Kenmore Dishwasher Error Code = Sanitize LED blinking at end of cycle
Control panel could not detect if sanitation has been achieved Kenmore Dishwasher Error Code = Console light blinking rapidly
There is a stuck button on the control panel Kenmore Dishwasher Error Code = Clean light is constantly illuminated
Dishwasher cannot start a wash cycle until it sees that the door has been opened after the previous washing cycle Kenmore Dishwasher Error Code = Control lock LED is ON but not responding to pressing of the keys
Turned on by accident or there is a control detected key pad problem
Do you hear a 'click' when it is supposed to start filling the machine--if not, then the water inlet solenoid has likely failed. Make sure the water is turned on under the sink and there are no kinks in the supply hose. Hope this helps!
The following suggestions will greatly enhance the ability of your dishwasher to clean all of the dishes thoroughly:
1. Rinse all of the food off of the dishes before you put them in the dishwasher.
2. Run the hot water into the sink until it is as hot as it gets before you start the dishwasher.
3. Do not pack the dishes into the dishwasher, just put in a reasonable number without crowding or stacking them on either shelf.
4. Pull the top shelf all the way out to be sure that the water connection at the rear of the top shelf is connected. Sometimes, this connector comes disconnected preventing the water from entering the top spray assembly.
THese things should make a huge difference.
Good luck with this and please rate my answer. Thanks. Joe

Motor has gone out..just like mine...Make sure u have voltage going to the motor, (disconnect the plug from the motor) and use an electric meter to make sure you have voltage going to the motor. If so the motor has either gone out or has been blocked by something! If no noise except clicking then motor has gone out. Looking at about $150 for motor.
