    maytag dishwasher will not fill with water.

    Tested valve solenoid with ohm meter...it's o.k. but cannot determine if power is getting to it...what voltage does it run on?

    If the timer is not sending power to it, how do I test the timer? Every other function on the timer seems o.k.

Frigidaire dishwashers can lose their pump prime and will not fill with water if there is no priming water in the bottom of the unit. To solve this, add several quarts of water to the unit. Let it settle down in the bottom until it stops going down. Start the washer and you will hear this water pump out of the drain and the unit will now fill with fresh water.

    when I took off the kick plate, the drain tube only had a bit of water in it. I did as Jagg suggested and filled the unit with water until it didn't disappear anymore. When I looked under the unit again, the drain tube was all filled. I tried starting it right away, but it didn't put any water in, I tried again a few minutes later and blamo! dishes being cleaned as we speak.

    I added about a half a gallon of water into the bottom of the dishwasher and turned it on. The dishwasher primed and started to work fine...Thank you!!!

There is a Floater inside the tub protecting against overflow. when it is pushed up (by too much water) or stuck by debris, and does not fall down to its inactive position, it can prevent water from filling. make sure there is no debris,and move the floater up and down until it falls down in its normal position. PS : there is a floor cover underneath the door, it has a repair manual glued to it on the back. you can use "diagnostics" mode by pushing a specific sequence on the front panel, allowing you to go through each cycle in an accellerated way.

This is for a kenwood elite ultrawash : there is a floater inside the tub (shape of a mushroom on right front of the bootom of the tub) that controls the incoming water and protects against overflow. if it is activated, it will prevent water from coming in. check that the floater is not in the upmost position or if it does not drop down when you lift it. the floater must be pushed down. make sure there is no debris blocking it from falling down. Ps : when i unscrewed the floor cover under the door, i found a manufacturer's repair manual glued to the back of it. there is also some kind of "diagnostics mode" that you can trigger from the front panel.

I have a GE and I filled the tub until it would not drain anymore...still didn't work. Then I took off the bottom front cover and there was a white trianlgle looking piece. I pushed it down- it is connected to a metal piece that looks like a battery and AHHHHHHH it worked!! (And no I am not techinical by anymeans- hence the non technical descriptions)

First try to see if there's a leak somewhere. Cheack to see if there's water in the pan. There's a sensor that shuts off the water supply when there's a leak. There might be a screw loose somewhere that you have to tighten. If there's no leak, the water shutoff valve might be damaged, in which case you will probably have to replace it.

Check that water entrance valve works (it is an electromagnet valve,loocated at the pipe's enterance to the machine). If it doesn't work, test that it get power. In case it get power and dosen't work - You can easyly open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from machine before doing it !!!!! Check as well for valve's coil resistance. In case you have no resistance measurement - you should replace for a new

This may sound stupid but... make sure you have taken out the little stopper in the waste pipe under the sink! I had a new kitchen fitted, and forgot about this, and could not understand why my dishwasher would not fill up or drain. Take the stopper out and Bob's your uncle!

I am almost certain that your problem is the fill solenoid.

If it does not work, there will be no water entering your machine.

I would either remove it and test it or just replace it at this point.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa
The problem is with the float switch assembly that is bad and needs replacement. A float switch on a dishwasher is designed for one thing, to stop the water flow from the dishwashers water valve. To access the dishwasher float switch regardless of the make or model, 99% of dishwashers are accessed from behind the toe kick panel i.e by removing the front bottom access panel. When the timer or main control call for water, power is sent through the float switch wires, when the dishwasher has filled up raising the plastic mushroom looking piece high enough, the switch will stop power from getting to the water valve. That is the idea behind the switch, to further test this switch with a volt meter you can view this video: Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Bosch exxcel auto option - Have not run it for a couple of months. Turnit on al all it does is pump out


Hi,

The usual reason for this is that water hes leaked into the bottom of your dishwasher under the washing compartment. This has caused the float to rise and trip the switch which activates the Aqua-Stop / anti-flood protection system. This also closes the solenoid (water control valve) to stop water entering this dishwasher. You may already have had a small leak before you stopped using it.

The only way to check this is to remove the washer from under the counter (disconnect power and water supply first) and tilt it backwards about 15-20 degrees. Water should run on to the floor from under the washer so I suggest putting some old towels down first. Once the water has been drained from under the washer, you can use it again, but it's not advisable if you have a leak and this really needs to be investigated.


If there is no water from under the washer, you may have a faulty float switch or possibly a faulty control module.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

There is a simple explanation for this - water is leaking into the bottom of your dishwasher under the washing compartment. This has caused the float to rise and trip the switch which activates the Aqua-Stop / anti-flood protection system. This also closes the solenoid (water control valve) which explains why you thought it needed to be replaced.

The only way to check this is to remove the washer from under the counter (disconnect power and water supply first) and tilt it backwards about 15-20 degrees. Water should run on to the floor from under the washer so I suggest putting some old towels down first. Once the water has been drained from under the washer, you can use it again, but it's not advisable if you have a leak. The only way to find the leak is to get access to the bottom of the washer by removing a side panel, usually the right-hand one. As you already replaced the solenoid, you should know how to do this. Once you have access you can run a cycle and try to see where the water is leaking from or you may be able to see signs of corrosion somewhere which should help you to identify the source of the leak.

If there is no water under the washer, you probably have a faulty float switch or possible a faulty control module.

Hope this helps. Post back if you need further assistance.

Asko D3230 dishwasher pump will not turn off, with main switch on


This is a anti flood activation. It is a safety device (polystireen float and micro switch at the base of the washer) that keeps the drain motor running due to water leak / spill detection. Dry the water and rectify the leak (normaly pipe or clamp leak) and this should solve the problem.

Water not coming into dishwasher


Without knowing the model number of your GE dishwasher, but some dishwashers don't notice when the float / float switch is stuck. That could cause the dish washer to move through all the cycles but never have water flow into the dishwasher. That would be the first place I would look. But please post back here with what you find (plus the model number of your dishwasher) before ou rate me level of helpfulness, OK?

Dishwasher leaves residue in top rack only


Most cleaning problems are caused by the dishwasher not getting enough water. It could be cause of the switch level, which control water level in the tub. The switch level is usually a diaphragm device with a small clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. I am not familiar with your machine, but if you will open the rear panel you will find it easily. Be aware you should discoonect the power cable !!! Clear the tube (attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub) from any obstruction.In case it will not solve the problem, you should replace the switch. Good luck !
