    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.

    My Bosh dishwasher does not fill with water. It worked one day perfect the next day I run the full cycle then I noticed the dishes never got wet. It sounds perfect otherwise.

    On my bosch I found a overflow drainon the left hand side of the tum and pumped air into it and noe it seems to work fine. probably a lever arm on a float was stuck telling it there was still water in the tub.

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.

Why won't the water stay in the basin of my dishwasher? Why does the water run out of my dishwasher as it is trying to fill? The fill valve opens, water runs into the washer and directly out of the dr


There are two ways water can get out of your dishwasher. 1, it the tub is cracked and the water leaks out. If that were happening then you'd probably already know since there would be a lot of water somewhere it shouldn't be. 2, if for some reason the drain pump is "stuck" in the on position and is running while the fill valve is open. You could check this by turning the water to your dishwasher OFF and then set it to run a load. When it attempts to start you should hear the valve open and nothing more. If you can hear the drain pump running then you've narrowed the problem this far. The next step would be confirm that all mechanical switches (and/or relays) are operating correctly. Finally, you may want to look up a schematic/wiring diagram for your model and see if it shows any mechanical switches that control the drain pump (like a "high water level" switch) that could be stuck closed. Hope some of this helps.

Water wont stop filling up


If water keeps filling or dribbling into the machine with the power off it's the water inlet solenoid. If it overfills only during the cycle then it is the pressure switch or pressure switch tube.

Washer stops at fill and will not continue


Hi.

The question has been posted in dishwasher. I understood that the problem is with a washer. Troubleshooting is similar in both appliances. Below the parts to test.

Check pressure from house, inlet valve, water pressure switch, door switch and electronic control. If this is a dishwasher check if there is residual water at the bottom of the tub on start-up. If this is a washing machine instead of a dishwasher check also the setting of the drain hose.

The user can run a diagnostic cycle and check in what part of the cycle the machine is stalling. The technician can test the parts mentioned above individually reading volts and impedance or jumping contacts.

Regards.

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.

The washer is not getting any water. It is running dry.


Hi


When the Dishwasher is not filling in, you'll need to check for the water inlet valve, the filter screen and the float switch/assembly. Also check for the float assembly inside the dishwasher. When water is filling your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages.
If these are fine then it's due to Water Inlet Valve. Use a multimeter and check for the continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Does not fill with water


The water level detection is done via a small plastic pipe from the bottom of the machine that fills with water and causes the air pressure in the pipe to activate a micro switch in the water level detecter. The pipe can be disconnected at the bottom and gently blow into the pipe. If you listern carefully you can hear the micro switch click. The pipe must not be blocked and in some cases the switch contacts could be burnt. The water level is factory set but can be adjusted on the water sensor. Replace if necessary.

DISHWASHER IS ONLY FILLING WITH A SMALL AMOUNT OF WATER


The water level detector pipe could be obstructed / blocked. This thin plastic pipe is at the bottom of the washer and as it fills to the correct level of water the pressure in the pipe activates a water level switch in the washer. Sometimes the air pressure pipe becomes blocked / obstructed or the contacts of the pressure switch become burnt. You can disconnect the pipe and blow through it and the pressure switch is normally factory set and does not need adjusting. Replace it if necessary.

Washer wont fill enough water


Washers have a (vacum pipe) that feeds a micro switch. The air pressure in the vacume pipe caused by the water filling the washer activates a vacum switch when the correct amount of water has entered the machiene. This vacum pipe could be partly blocked or the vacume pressure switch contacts burnt of faulty. This can be tested by physicaly blowing air by mouth into the pipe and you should hear the switch click.
