No water in my dishwasher

It  worked yesterday, but not now. I cleaned the filter at the bottom. I poured 2 kettles of water in the bottom and it immediately drained when I turned it on, but nothing sprayed and no other water came, nothing is spraying.

That is a problem with the water lever switch, that is actuated by a floating sensor. The floating sensor is probably stuck , and activates the drain pump immediately.

Bosch classixx dishwasher wont drain


Ive had this happen on mine too. remove the filters in the bottom. squirt washing up liquid into the space-- liberally dont be shy!
Boil pans of water, boil the kettle. pour water into the space where the filters normally are. Fill the base of the dishwasher completely. Next close the door and repeatedly use the Reset feature. Eventually the pump will clear and kick back into life. Its a build up of fats, and sludge that causes the pump to appear to seize--the washing up liquid and boiling water see to that.

Sediment is collecting in the bottom and on the dishes. I have tried a cleaning cycle but it doesn't work.


First perform a vinegar cycle wash in the dishwasher. Pour a cup of vinegar into the bottom of the dishwasher. Keep the temperature at the highest setting possible and perform a wash cycle.Then start using a dishwasher most probably that would solve the problem. If this does not solve the problem then there must be some parts worn out or faulty creating the problem.

There are many probable causes of failure .

To clean the dishes the water temperature is essential.It the water is not hot then the dishes will not be cleaned properly.So check the water temperature.

Also check the filter in your dishwasher.Clean the filter if there is accumulation of debris in the filter

Water Laying in bottom of dishwasher


Usually there must be a filter screen in the dishwasher which can cause this to happen. It goes to the drain . If there is accumulation of food particles in the dishwasher filter screen then draining may be obstructed which can cause the water to be stranded at the bottom.

To exactly tell you where the filter is locate and how to clean it please specify the brand and model number of your dishwasher.Usually the filter is located at the back of the dishwasher near the drain. It is usually held in position by means of clips. You can just pop it out.Pour some hot water in the drain and clean the drain line also.

If you are in an hard water zone , then try reducing the amount of detergent used and then try cleaning the dishes.

Our ten year old kitchenaid dishwasher doesn't get the dishes clean. there is food particles left on dishes if we don't completely rinse our dishes. is there a cleanout filter that needs to be emptied?


Locate your dishwasher's filter. It is typically on the floor of the dishwasher. Pull out the bottom rack and look along the bottom of the dishwasher until you find it.

Use a paper towel or sponge to remove any residue or debris that has accumulated on the outside of the filter once you locate it. On some dishwashers, the filter area does not detach or open, so your hand cleaning will stop here. On other models, you can unscrew the filter housing to access the inside and clean any debris from the filter area. Simply wash out the filter using soap and water, then reassemble once cleaning is complete.

Further clean the filter area by pouring a quart of white vinegar into the bottom of the empty dishwasher. Turn to a wash cycle and allow the dishwasher to run with the vinegar cleaning the mechanisms, including the filter.

To deep-clean your dishwasher and the filter periodically, mix the following ingredients together in a bowl, then pour into the bottom of the dishwasher: 1/2 cup salt, 1/2 cup baking soda and 1 cup bleach. Let the mixture sit in the bottom of the empty dishwasher overnight. The next morning run a wash cycle, letting the bleach mixture clean and disinfect the dishwasher thoroughly.

Whenever the dishwasher is started the drain pump stay on. It will only stop when the breaker is switched off.


Chances are you sump level monitor is stuck to the side of the drain with fat of other food substance that has got past the filter.
1 Empty your machine .
2. Remove the stainless steel filter below the lower basket.
3. Pour a kettle of boiling water down the hole beneath where the filter is.
4.Set the machine to rinse.
hopefully this will cure the problem

Dishes are not getting clean


Hi there.
In the bottom of the dishwashers is normally a filter with a handle on it for easy removal. pull it up, gently, you might have to turn it slightly from side to side to loosen it if it is very dirty. When this filter is out you will see another filter that is just lifted straight up and on that one you might find a lot of dirt.Put both filters in a 10 liter bucket with on cup of chlorine(diluted to 5%) to 5 liters of water. Pour some chlorine( 2 cups) into the bottom of the machine, and close the door and let the machine run on its hottest cycle until finished. When the machine is finished, rinse out the filters in the bucket with warm water. Brush the rest of the dirt off and replace them where they were. Run the machine once again, now on a normal cycle with the dishes in it and I believe they will be clean.

Error code e4 on kenwood kdw12st3a dishwasher too much inlet wate


HI there,
I have had the same problem as most of you. I seem to have fixed it by 
1. Bail out all the water from the inside
2. Remove the filter and 2 x mesh pieces.
3. Continue to bail out the water from the filter well.
4. You will probably find pieces of food or fat/debris in the bottom of the well. Remove these.
5. Tilt back the dishwasher at 45 degrees for 30 mins or so to drain and dry the flood sensor.
6. Boil a kettle and pour it down the well. Immediately put the dish washer on a eco wash (no tablets or anything) with half load (ie half water) and this will ease the water pump. 
7. Let the dishwasher run its cycle. 
8. Clean the filter again and the filter well.

It sounds quite long winded but with a £250 item you need to take care of it. Make sure you rinse most plates before loading in the future. 

Hope this helps!!!
Good Luck!!!

Dishes not being cleaned properly - large portion of tablet still remaining in the bottom


I have a 4114 and the problem was not enough water entering the washer. You can check by adding extra water (kettle full) to the washer just after start. ( opening the door just suspends the cycle) If your dishes clean well then you will need to adjust the pressure level switch to allow more water in. There is an adjustment screw on the switch which needs to be turned 1/4- 1/2 a turn. This puts more tension on the spring so more water needs to enter before the switch is activated. On the 4114 the switch has 2 adjusters. It is the taller of the 2 that require adjusting. Do little turns until the water level just covers the filters.
