Question about Dishwashers
Hi we have a kleenmaid DW3 it wont run, you can reset it and it clicks through but will not fill with water and wash.. Can you please help..
Thank you Won't reset or start...lights just run through different programmes but will not operate. Thought it was a problem with LED and powerboard so switched it off then "light show" began with lights running in turn across display.
If there's no water entering your dishwasher, check these:
Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it.
Float switch The float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below the dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of the dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills the dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets caught or trapped in the raised position, the water can't enter the dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it.

Hi, have the same problem, found the LED light circuit board burnt, unplugged the board and the dishwasher works fine just don't have the red lights on or showing, I can live with that because it cost me nothing to get it working again., Rob.

Had this prob which was a stuck water inlet solenoid. It's behind the left side of the front kick panel & you should hear a humming sound if it's stuck. It's caused by excessive frothing of detergent. Remove plastic tubing from end of solenoid and **** & blow into the tube. If solenoid is stuck you'll hear it slide back into position. Put tube back in place and run machine. It should now run. I'm told it's a very common problem.

Some of the switches that control water are electrical but it could be the control panel board. Are you planning on repairing this yourself? You most likely should have a qualified technician service your machine. Once I have more information I can assist you further. Please hold off on requesting more assistance/rejecting my assistance.
