Question about Viking 24 in. Professional Series VUD040 Stainless Steel (Premium) Built-in Dishwasher

Viking VUd040 dishwasher hums but doesn't fill with water or rinse...

Hi,
If I turn the left knob to dry, it make a humming noise and looks like it's trying to dry but when I turn the right knob to any of the setting like pots & pans or any other setting, it does nothing.
Is the timer knob broken?

By the way, I unplugged and plugged it back in and it didn't help.

Thanks a lot,
Fred

Probable cause is either a bad fill valve, common with these, or just some debris in the fill valve inlet screen, also common. If you are handy you can take apart the fill valve and check the screen but often one needs to replace the whole valve, about an $80 part + labor. Double check your valve under the sink and make sure it is on completely.

disconnect the hose and run it into a bucket, is it pumping freely?.

did you check the trap for a blockage?

You may have a leak in the pump housing area below the unit, this would cause the drain pump to run continually.

SOURCE: Hi - my Viking dishwasher has developed a problem

if you open the kick plate, you'll see the pan below the motor and check for leaks. The leaks will trigger the sensor to pump water out. Once you dry out the pan, the pump motor will stop and you should be able to reset the program.

Their is 2 screens towards the back right that are plugged up. . You can take out 2 screws out and clean them up. Or the fill level adjustment in the front left isn't working right. It also can be fixed with 2 screws and cleaned.

Gene, I have a Kenmore Elite model # 665


Hey Steve,Sorry it took me so long to answer i was offline and my add is not supposed to displayed when i am off line so sorry about that.
Now then on that dishwasher with the hum and no water circulation it sounds as if the main wash motor is jammed up for some reason it could be that the motor itself is defective or as simple as something such a piece of debris such as broken glass or almost anything caught in the motor causing it to not turn on,by disassembling the wash motor you can see if something is caught in,if nothing is caught in its a (sorry to say) the motor itself thats bad and would need to replaced.The reason the water drains even though it will not circulate is because of the separate drain pump that is working Please reply back after disassembling the pump to check for debris if ya need further assistance.
Thanks for using Fixya.Com,GENE

Bosch she45mo6uc/52. came home today and is has a loud hum. looks like it never got water in. the dry soap is just laying inside.


The humming noise is either from the pump motor or the water inlet solenoid. One of them is stuck. Take the mopboard plate off the front of the dishwasher and look for the solenoid. It will be a cylinder with two wires attached stuck onto a box in the water line. Start the dishwasher and touch the solenoid with a finger (naturally not the electrical terminals). If you feel it vibrating in time with the hum but do not hear the water running in, the valve is stuck closed. In this case the solenoid may rapidly get hot; that's why you just touch it with a fingertip.

If water comes in and the big motor in the middle starts humming as soon as the fill is complete, then the pump is jammed or the motor bearings are frozen. You'll have to disassemble the pump (from inside the tub) to see what's going on. You should be able to freely rotate the pump impeller and the motor shaft by hand (this is inside the pump; don't confuse it with spray arm, which is spun by reaction from the water spraying out rather than a mechanical connection to the pump motor).

Another possibility is that the water fill level switch is hung up and signaling a complete water fill when the unit is still dry. If this is the case, when you start the dishwasher you may hear the water solenoid briefly, then the pump will start running immediately. Since it has no water, it will just spin at full motor speed. A quick test for this is to pour about a gallon of water into the dishwasher, then close the door and let it run. If it runs normally until it gets to the rinse cycle, then it's either the level switch or the solenoid valve. (Be sure it isn't a pump problem first or you'll have to get the water out while you can work on it!)

If I'm not mistaken, these dishwashers are built by Asko for Viking. If thats the case then you probably have a bad circulation pump. Under Asko's warranty (not sure if Viking is the same) these pumps are covered parts and labor for 3 years from installation date, and 5 years for the part only. The pump is accesed from the back of the machine,so you have to pull out the dishwasher. Then you remove the lower plate in the rear and the motor at the very back center is the pump. You remove it by turning it about a 1/4 turn either clockwise or counter clockwise, depending on the style, then place the new one in and turn it to lock it in place, being careful that the sealing oring stays in place or youll get a leak. The part will probably cost you around $150 unless viking marks theirs up more than Asko. Good Luck!
