There's no hot water Some washing machines allow hot water to enter only during certain cycles. Others intermittently allow hot and cold to enter, to temper the temperature of the water. Consult your owner's manual if you are unsure about whether the machine is acting abnormally.

If you're sure the machine isn't working the way it used to--or should--try these tests:

  • Is the hot water turned on? If not, turn it on.


  • Is the washer getting cold water but no hot water? If so, check to see if the control panel settings are correct.


  • Is there hot water coming through the proper hose? If not, check to see if the screen inside the water-inlet valve is clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If it's clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, completely replace it.

There's no water at allIf there's no water at all, make these checks:

  • Is there water getting to the machine?


  • Is the water-volume selector switch set properly and are the control panel buttons pressed in all the way?


  • If you have a Maytag® washer, is the fuse (if there is one) in the control panel at the lid-switch bracket blown?


  • Is there a faint buzzing or humming noise coming from the water-inlet valve? (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If you can't hear anything, the water-inlet valve may not be getting any power. If you can hear some noise and there's water present, you may need to completely replace the water-inlet valve.

    Dishwasher will not fill with water


    If the water is getting to the machine through the feed hose, the feed hose its attached to an electric switch.
    That switch is sometimes blue and has another smaller hose ( often black) leading to the inside of the machine.
    That switch has about 2 wires going to it, and it turns on or shuts off the water according to the timer's prompts.
    The switch is usually found under the machine way in the back, and is about half the size of your fist.

    Water not entering maqchine


    Check to see if water is going through the feed hose to the back of the machine.
    The feed hose as is attachedd to an electrical switch that controls the water going into the machine.
    It is often blue colored.
    It is found way down under the machine in the back.
    That switch also has two wires going to it from the timer, and another hose, usually smaller and black in color that takes the water into the machine.
    If all of this is fine, suspect your timer may not be telling your switch to send the water.
    The switch is about half the size of your fist.

    Machine runs but doesn't allow water to come into machine


    Don't know the history of your machine, sounds like possibly the hot water supply valve under your sink is turned off. To check this go under your kitchen sink and inspect water supply valves, (right side cold water) left side hot water valve feeds the machine. Vertical water line is for sink above, there should be a second water line coming off this valve that has its own on/off knob. Make sure this knob is turned on, (counterclockwise)if not sure turn it to the right (clockwise)till stops, then to the left till it stops. This allows hot water to enter dish machine. If valve is on and line is ok, there might be a kink in the line behind the dish machine or a restriction (clog) in the water line. May need to unplug machine and unsecure it to pull it out for inspection. Good luck,best regards.

    Top sprayer arm is not cleaning cups any more


    Hello. Make sure the water tube that feeds the top sprayer is properly attached and aligned with the water source in the rear of the machine. Sometimes the rear end of the hose gets dislodged and does not feed water to the top sprayer as it should. Joe

    Dishwasher stuck in mode feeding hot water into the machine. Cannot turn water off.


    Hi,
    There is dirt **** in the sloeniod water feed valve. To turn the water off you will need to find the water valve on the hot water piping that feeds to your dishwasher. Turn that valve off for now, Then you need to follow these tips to get to the soleniod valve and to order parts to fix the dishwasher. The replacement of this valve is fairly simple. You will just need some patience to work in the tight space under the dishwasher.

    Shu3035 when i turn dishwasher on it seems to be


    Hi I am Vortash it sounds like your vacum sensor has gone .. this is the device that tells the machine how much water it has in it , should this fail it sometimes confuses the machine into thinking it is full of water and is actually a very common fault with dishwashers and washing machines . So it carries on and does a full cycle thinking it is washing but has no water . If it was just the water feed solenoid the vacum would not allow the machine to run , but if the vacum is faulty it stops the feed from opening and allowing water in .
    Another possibility is that your program panel has gone and requires replacement .. but I would try the vacum first as this would be the far cheaper option first ... Regards Vortash

    Is it OK to attach a hot water feed rather than cold water.


    All dishwashers are suppossed to be connected to hot water. Who connected yours to cold water and why? Doesn't make any sense. Definately change it over to hot water feed.

    Hello! My GE Dishwasher (Model # GSD2000G00WW) will not fill. The water supply is flowing properly after cleaning out some lime and mineral deposits, but no water is going into the machine. If the water...


    I need to know is the water not going in the machine at all in other words when you switch on the machine with the tap open can you hear the water flowing,if you can here the water flowing check the hight of you drain hose if it is too low down you will find that you end up with a syphoning effect as the water goes in the machine it gravity feeds out the drain pipe if the drain pipe is low lift it up (about half way of the machine is a general indicater) if you cannot here water flow and the tap is open and machine on it could be your inlet solonoid,it may also be your pressure switch if the machine was tlted it may get water in the pressure tube in wich case you will need to locate the pressure tube and blow it clear if there is water in the pressure tube the pressure switch will think the machine is full,worst case is the (timer or pc board) wich ever your machine has is fualty but this is seldom the case
