The Dishwasher does have power and the timer does cycle through its rotation. but the tub will not fill with water. I checked the internal float and it seemd fine will move up and down freely and hear it click. I checked that there is water at the inlet valve and and also checked for voltage to the inlet power connector. there was 5v ac at the inlet while it was running but as i siad it would not fill with water. This unit is appox 4 years old and used heavely

Had the same problem with ours today. That's why I got on here. My dad used a gallon jug to prime it with a gallon of hot tap water. We primed it to get it pumping, and now it is working fine. Just pour the hot water into the dishwasher and start it.

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.

Dishwasher cycles with timer, won't fill with water. Motor runs fine, drain and fill valves test fine, float switch tests fine too. Water pressure fine. I'm thinking the timer is bad and won't send a...


Remove the toekick plate on the bottom of the dishwasher.
Remove the wires from the water valve. Insert the leads from a volt meter into the water valve power wires.
Turn the washer on. After the initial pump out cycle the timer sends power to the water valve through the water level switch. If you get power to the wires,the water valve is bad or you have no water supply to the valve.
If you get no power to the wires the water level switch is bad or the wires to the switch are bad or the timer is bad.

I have a GE GSD2230Z00WW dishwasher water will not fill on start no power on the fill valve either. Water will come on quick wash cycle and rinse.


Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve.

***If everything checks out ok with the water inlet valve, replace the timer or control board.

Stays in wash cycle


Solution found in a defective SPDT 'Heater ON' switch which had burnt out, thereby causing an 'open' to pump solenoid, fill valve, and heater. Temporarily bypassing the switch confirms the solution. Buy either the whole switch panel (3 switches) from parts dealer or find a source for CW Industries part GRS2012-13.

No water going inside, but water to dishwasher fine


If it is supposed to be the filling cycle and you have no voltage to the water fill soleniod then a timer contact is not making connection or there is no voltage to the timer relay. Fix it!

Dishwasher just started not filling enough water to wash dishes.


It does sound like a circuit board problem but lets not rush out and pay an exorbitant service fee yet...I checked the user manual and this model does have a timer also...so often timer go out and many people think the problem lies elsewhere...but when a timer goes out or a couple of teeth no longer engage then you could have any number of problems...I doubt the solenoid is bad or it would not initiate at all to begin with,,,,,so here is a little test......turn the DW on and cycle the timer to where it starts the water solenoid....watch the timer to see that it turns and disengages. the solenoid...How quick was it? (if under your accustomed 2 mins... problem with timer). Another test is to do the same and hold the timer tightly preventing it from turning and see if you can force the fill valve to stay open longer (if so...bad timer).

I hope this helps...please rate me....The Fang

Dishwasher Does Not Cycle


IA, these GE pumps have a habit of sticking if the unit hasn't been run for a while. First you want to verify that the motor is in fact getting power, this will eliminate the timer. You can use a meter on the quik connect from the motor while in the wash cycle. If the motor is getting power, see if the pump is stuck by turning the motor vanes (Do this with the power off). If it's hard to turn and then frees up than this was more than likley your problem. You remove the bottom toe panel and will be able to check this out without removing the dishwasher.
