Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve.

My washing machine keeps filling with water

If the washer keeps filling up without overflowing onto the floor , then you have the drain hose too deep into the drain and it is siphoning, pull the drain hose back up from being so deep and have it only about 10 inches into the drain, tie it into place with a shoestring or wire tie.
Now if your problem is that the washer is overflowing onto the floor, then there is a clear rubber hose that has been disconnected from the washer, this is the diaphragm hose. Have a technician reattach it. It shuts the water off and starts the machine when its gets enough water, but it wont if the hose is disconnected. Mr Burk

Beko washing machine no water coming through

The first thing I would check would be the screens located where the washer hoses connect to the machine . Shut off the water and carefully uscrew the hoses. You may get a little water leaking from the hoses when you unscrew them but that should stop shortly. After removing the hoses inspect the screens located where the hoses were connected they can get plugged with sediment and can slow or stop the flow of water into the washer. Clean them off with a small brush( an old toothbrush works) . Before reattaching the hoses run some water out of them into a pail to flush any remaining dirt or sediment that may be in them. Reattach the hose and see if that works. If it still wont fill it may be a faulty solonoid valve. To replace this I recommend a appliance repairman.

Water wont drain out of bottom of tub. The dishwasher works fine, it just wont drain the dirty water out. If I restart it to wash again, the dishes are washed in the dirty water.

A clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reason that a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hose or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.
Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water.

Other dishwashers simply reverse the direction of the motor to drain the dishwasher. These units don't have a drain valve. Instead, there's a drain hose connected directly to the pump housing.
Thank you !!

even if the pump is running does not mean the impeller shaft is turning, You could unplug the machine and disconnect the washer and pull out and drop the hose to see if water will drain when you lower the hose to about 8 inch's does it run out freely? if not check for a plugged water pump or water pump hose if the water flows freely you will need to drain the washer if it's on rollers roll it out side to allow the water to drain out the machine from the porch. while it is draining check the hose that the washer connects to see if you see any plug in the pipe. put the sink drain plugs in and fill half way with water put a bucket under the sink after filling the water to half full pull the stopper out of the sink that connects to the dish washer. Hold your hand on the hole of the connection to the sing watch to see if the drain allows the water to flow. If it flows freely you can assume that the water pump is bad. If thats the case it's best find someone to replace the unit the pump can be replaced but you need tools to do so and you did not state if you had any. thanks for using fix-ya.

I have a Kenmore Elite HE3t washer. It fills up

Ironically, the "FH" error is called a "No Water Detect" error. It can have several causes however. The error can be generated if there's no water, or not enough water flowing into the washer. It can also be generated if there's too much water. The following link explains:

Since your washer is over-filling, I would strongly suspect you have a pressure switch malfunction or the air hose that runs from the wash tub to the pressure swtich has come loose. The pressure swtich is located in the the right rear area of the washer and is accessed by removing the top panel of the washer. There is a small air hose that runs from the switch to the bottom of the wash tub. This air hose is used to detect the pressure differential in the tub as the washer fills. The pressure differential is sensed by the pressure swtich and it shuts off the water supply to stop filling. I would recommend you follow this air hose all the way to the bottom of the wash tub to ensure it is still attached. If not, the tub will continue to fill as yours is doing. Reattach the hose as necessary if it has come loose and the poblem should go away. Make sure you check the entire run of the hose to ensure there are no holes as well. Leaks will cause the pressure swtich to malfuction. If the air hose is still intact, replace the pressure swtich. The part number for a replacement pressure switch is 8181695. If you need to replace the air hose, the part number is W10004260. You can purchase parts at any of the following web sites:

The first three sites on the list offer helpful exploded view diagrams to assist you in part location/identification. The pressure switch and hose is listed under the "Top and Cabinet" heading if you search by model number.

The pressure hose replacement is simple. Make sure the washer is UNPLUGGED before servicing and disconnect the electrical connector plug(s) from the switch, disconnect the air hose and remove any mounting screws. Some of these switch are simply clipped onto the cabinet side.

If you have any questions about this repair, please post back and let me know. I hope this information helps you.
