Hello debbiemiff,
Not sure I understand your question but if you are asking how to get your dishwasher working after it has been plumbed in then here are a few suggestions.. if it is a new dishwasher.. make sure you remove all the packing tape inside that holds the dish trays and wash arms from moving during shipment.. Then buy the proper detergent and do NOT use detergent that is not intended for a dishwasher ... then make sure power is hooked up .. and select a cycle and run it.. If I have not answered your question, please rephrase it so I can help you...
Regards

Dishwasher not drying dished with any heat source. Dishes washed in cold water.


Most dishwashers are plumbed to the hot side of the hot water side of the faucet. This should provide hot water for washing the dishes. Perhaps this dishwasher was plumbed to the cold water side by mistake.

Most dishwashers have a heating coil most of the way around under the bottom sliding/rolling dish rack. The heating coil may not be working, which would be consistent with the dishes not drying at the end of the cycle. Possible causes include incorrect setting selected on control console (push buttons) or timer, heating coil disconnected from electrical source at one end or both ends, faulty control circuit inside the timer, faulty wiring between the timer/control circuit and the heating coil, burned or pitted contacts in the control circuit.

Float not working?


the drain hose has to have a loop 18" higher than the bottom of your dishwasher right where the hose connects to your plumbing, you just have to zip tie it to a water line or drain. it needs this for that reason and also to keep your pump primed. hope this helps

Only bottom rack cleans. Re-plumb or replace?


Do you have a garbage disposal? If I run mine while the dishwasher is running, dishes do NOT get clean!

Plumbing issues for under the counter frigidaire mini dishwasher


Your right the one with the rounded end and nut is the intake. It is supposed to be attatched to your faucet. Adapters may be needed. The other is the drain hose, make sure it is attatched firmly, you can't just throw it in sink or BIG mess will follow!

Once the "start" is pressed, the "reset" option on the same button will not turn it off. This dishwasher is in a new place we're buying, and we're not ready to run a whole cycle to see if the machine works...


just un-plug it for now,....then of coarse when you can run it plug it back in for test,....ya never know, just un-plugging it could very well reset itself and work fine. this is the way with alot of the newer things,....good luck

Kenmore Dishwasher won't fill


Not likely an air lock. When plumbing work is done the pipes ge shook up and then particles plug up the screens on these and washer and faucets. I would make sure the over flow float is properly working and then check the screen on the fill valve. Could be a coincidence and the valve failed but that is my last choice in this case. Eric

I have a neff dishwasher that is maybe 5 years old. im pretty sure there is nothing wrong with it as it was working perfectly fine before i had a plumbing problem a few days ago. after the plumbing problem...


Look for the connection from the valve to the inlet of diswasher. Check the hot water valve to be on. It is probably closed when anyone working on the plumping. Good luck.

587 Doesn't work well


AS ABOVE SUGESTION ...PROBUBLY NOT GETTING ENOUGH WATER. NOT LIKELY THE FAULT OF THE DISHWASHER PROBUBLY SEDIMENT FROM THE WATER PLUGED THE INLET SCREEN OF THE FILL VALVE. MANY TIMES THE MOVING OF A FLEXIBLE PLUMBING LINE BRAKES LOOSE ANY SEDIMENT AND DEPOSIT DURING THE INSTALATION OF A NEW DISHWASHER WHICH IS WHY MOST ADVISE REPACING THIS SMALL FLEXIBLE LINE WHEN INSTALLING A NEW DISHWASHER. YOU WILL HAVE TO DIS ASSEMBLE VALVE TO CLEAN SCREEN ...IF YOU BOUGHT THE PROTECTION AGREEMENT OR HAD SEARS INSTALL IT THEY SHOULD COVER A SERVICE CALL TO CLEAN THE VALVE.
