Water will not pump into dishwasher but will pump out


Hello. there are two devices that control the flow of water into a dishwasher. They are the water-inlet valve and the float switch.

Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it. Float switch The float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below the dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of the dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills the dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets caught or trapped in the raised position, the water can't enter the dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it.

I have a Maytag dishwasher model DWU8860 and it doesn't always fill after a pumpout cycle


It is probably a faulty inlet valve. Check the float switch first.

See here how to locate the parts.
