Dish washer runs all cycles but no water entering dish washer


Make sure you check that the water is turned on to the dishwasher.
Check for a kinked or squished fill hose. If all else fails its most likely you need a new fill valve for your dish washer.

What type of dishwasher do you have? Has your kitchen floor flooded? If it has. The tray under dish washer isn't water tight. Moisture creates some unusual problems. Some of newer dish washer the there control panel under the top of door this also create problem especially if the switches are on the top of the door. Another moisture problem. I have repaired a new Electrolux dish was three times in less than 6 months. The floor would flood from the Maytag side load washing machine. The Madam of the house didn't tell me that the washing machine flooded the kitchen floor. No window in the door and sometime fill water solenoid would stick and fill the tube. When they open washing machine door, 12 gallons of water would spill. So I fix both of them. GB...stewbison

The electronic control looks for a temp. rise of 2-4 degrees. If no temp.rise control assumes a heater fault and blinks clean light 7 times. Bad heater. Water fill when completed can be no less than 1/2 inch below heater. If so, water valve probably. Circulation motor not working properly. Neutral door switch. Tech sheet is behind bottom cover. Check underneath of unit for leaking or white hard water deposits. Common for seals to leak. If unit is unusually noisy, motor problem. Common after 4-5 years. Will check back to see if you other questions. Good luck.

We have hard water at our home, but the new dishwasher leaves a thick film on the glasses. We use the rinse agent, but it's awful.


You have to buy a cartridge type water softener and attach it to the
inlet water line of your dish washer. In addition to this there must be
a salt compartment in the dish washer.
Refer the user guide /owners manual and locate. Fill it with the special
dish washer salt. ( Do not use kitchen salt used for food).
The dish washer salt may help to certain extent in softening the wash
tub water inside. Check the switch settings for rinse aid and salt
release settings in the machine. Refer manual!

water temp plays a big role in proper washing the temp coming into the machine has to be a minimum of 120 degrees.
next thing to check is proper water level,there should be standing water in the bottom of the dish washer when it has completed it filling cycle.
try and add some water with out over filling the machine once the fill cycle has stop then run it through again and see what happens.
the main wash motor may have to be replaced

Runs but no water


Is the water cut off to the dishmachine. The first thing any dish washer should do at the beginning of the cycle is heat/fill with water. If you do not hear the water come on when you start the cycle, chances are that you have a bad fill valve, control circuit issue or no water supply to the dish machine.

GE Dishwasher fills with water but does not "spray water" on dish


Here are a few things that might help you out, first is you could have a bad heating element in your dish washer, when it fills with water it has to reach a certain temperature before continuing to the next cycle, next thing is you could have a bad thermostat, or your timer is defective.

Model # dwu7702aae has heat delay light coming on during cycle. Why?


Heater is used to both heat water during clean cycle and dry dishes after wash cycle. Most washers have either a separate switch for Heat or Dry for optional use, or some have the water heat and dish dry options built into cycle set options.

You can save money by turning off the Dish Dry option since it is a very in-efficient way to dry dishes. Instead, open the wishwasher door after washing cycle completes, just enough so fresh air can get into, and humid air can escape, dishwasher.

Water Heat option is only needed for dried food on dishes, and is never needed if dishes are either rised off before putting them in the dishwasher, or rinsed off inside the dishwaser with a Rinse cycle, if they are to stand for a time waiting for a full dishwasher for wash.
