Question about Dishwashers
Welcome to fixya,
You said, The water is not coming into my dishwasher, you have checked the inlet pipes etc and the water is going through them, just not making it into the dishwasher
What is the BRAND and MODEL Number and year of your dishwasher. Model can be found on sticker inside.
Did you turn off the power at the breaker for 5 minutes to see if it resets the system?
Here are four things to check for this problem!
Water source turned off
Check to ensure the water source is turned on and water is getting to the water inlet valve.
The float switch allows water to enter into the machine to a point where the float will rise up off of the switch and disconnect power to the water inlet valve. If the switch is defective or the float is stuck in the up position, the water will not enter into the machine
Defective water inlet valve
If there is 110v across the two wires on the water inlet valve when the machine is set to fill, the valve should open and the water should enter into the machine. If the water does not enter, the valve is defective.
The timer is a series of switches that controls all machine functions. If one of the contacts in the timer is defective, the machine will lose that function. knowledge of the the use of a vol/ohmmeter is essential to testing the timer as well as the ability to read the timer sequence chart that is supplied with the machine. In most cases this requires a professional technician.
