Question about Tappan MDB531RF Dishwasher

1 Answer

Installed new dishwasher

Just installed new dishwasher (tappen rotory dial) ...all water is on...power ok etc. Ran hot water in sink. Machine comes on and a little water comes out at first but it does not fill. (already checked filter). Is this a delay action by the thermostat at the fill pipe? How long before the water should come out and fill the bottom of the machine?

Definitely no delay in fill, i would recheck the water line make sure not kinked, also check wires leading to the valve for good contact to valve body

Water not heating


Dish washers only use water supplied from the hot water side of the pipes under the cabinet or sink, so if you installed the dishwasher yourself, be sure that you ran your inlet water line and connected it to the hot water side, and not the cold water side. The dish washer has heating elements inside the machine to dry the dishes, not heat the water. If this is hooked up correctly and you are still getting cold water to heat the dishes, the problem may be that the unit is too far from the hot water tank. In that case, you may need an auxiliary hot water tank installed near the dishwasher under the cabinet. They make small tanks for such purposes.

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.

I am getting an IE error on my control panel. It seems to start ok but once it starts to fill with water the IE error comes up and the machine shuts off. How can I fix this?


You do not list the manufacturer and model number, but it sounds like you own an LG dishwasher.

The IE error indicates that the water is not entering the dishwasher or it is entering too slowly / with little pressure. It is important to check the water inlet pipe (hot water connection under the sink) all the way to the dishwasher. Check for any kinks/blockages after you confirm that the valve at the sink is fully open.

Please report back here with what you find. If you still have problems, there are other things to check, including the solenoid valve just past the connection of the water inlet.

Glasses come out dirtier than they went in to the dishwasher but other items clean OK


Remove all dishes and throw two cups of vinegar into your machine then run the complete pot scrubber cycle with the hottest water you can.

Always run the hot water into the sink until it is totally hot before you run your dishwasher.

Bosch SHU3300 dishwasher stuck on hot water intake (w/ no power)


It sounds like the fill vlave is stuck open. This can happen if your pressure is low or if the machine is old. I would start by replacing the vlave.

No water entering machine - mains supply OK


On a Whirlpool ADP4731 dishwasher, try this...
Double check that the under-sink valve is open, providing hot water to the dishwasher.
If it is, the water inlet valve should be checked for proper operation.
The F4 error code means "drainage fault" which should be checked after the water inlet problem has been resolved.
Good Luck!

Dishwasher runs for 3 hours


Are you using the high wash temp setting? I was having the same problem with my dishwasher while using that setting. Apparently, it will run until the temp gets to its required number. And my hot water heater was set to not go that far. So my dishwasher would run and run. I fixed it by not using that setting any more.

Hotpoint Dishwasher


have you tried adjusting the feet on the front of the washer so it is tilted back slightly .This will stop the water from coming over the little lip on the front of the machine. Some dishwashers also use a little amount of water in the bottom when drying asthis helps to curculate the heat ; leave the washer to complete it's cycle and it should beep to let you know when it is finished
