No water entering machine

I have fitted a new inlet valve, but there is still no water entering the machine. If I put water in manually it works fine, drains fine also.I live in an area where scale is not a problem.

    No water entering. I changed inlet valve. Drained all water out, cleaned the lines, start up and water fills a little but doesn't continue.

    Neff dishwasher model: S 44 30WOGB/07



    Fault: No water entering dishwasher.



    Programmer goes through its cycle without any water entering machine.

    Slight burning smell detected which appears to come from pump motor as I found scorch marks on teminal 1 electrical connection that wires away to the programmer.

    When dishwasher manually filled with water, pump expels water at start of program cycle,

    I have cleaned out and tested float assembly and associated micro switches which all appear to be working.

    Cold water supply is switched on and no blockages found.



    Any ideas what could be wrong???

IT COULD BE THE FLOAT SWITCH ASSEMBLY> PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING VERY CAREFULLY AS WATER AND POWER DONT MIX WELL Before testing the float switch, unplug the dishwasher or shut off the power at the fuse box or breaker panel to avoid an electrical shock hazard. When the water in the tub lifts the float to a set point, the float switch is triggered and it shuts off the water inlet valve, stopping the flow of water. If the float switch is defective, the tub may overfill.If the float switch is obstructed or corroded it can prevent the tub from filling by holding the fill valve off !!so locate, check and clean. To access the float switch remove the lower panel located beneath the door. The panel is usually held in place with two screws either above or below the panel. It may be necessary to first open the door to the dishwasher to reach the screws over the panel, then close the door to remove the panel. Note the location of the float in the dishwasher's tub and you will find the float switch beneath it in the access area. The switch has two wires connected to it. Label the wires and connections so that you can properly reconnect them later. The wires are connected with slip on connectors. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire itself). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced. Use a continuity tester or multitester to test for continuity. Set the multitester to the ohms setting X1. Touch one probe to each terminal. You should get a reading of either zero or infinity. With the probes still in place, depress the button or lever on the switch and the reading should change to the opposite extreme

The same problem with a Zanussi DWS 694: no water intake.
The first thing to try is (after cleaning with hot water and soda until really proper) is to close the water tap and let the dishwaher run for a short while with a closed tap. This releases the pressure from the water tap.
Next, open the tap again and let i it run again.
You have a fair chance it will take water in again.
This procedure releases the overflow safety valve and works only if the cause is removed (by cleaning the dishwasher).

Very good. My wife had let the sink overflow and the water found its way into the dishwasher. All the water had gone but the foam float had stuck to the button on the switch. One touch and it dropped free and the water came back on.

If you float switch is all good...Check to make sure the water valve under the sink is turned ON (start with the basics) Then check to see if you have power to the inlet valve at fill. BE VERY CAREFULLY use a Multitester to check voltage if you have no voltage you have a bad timer... Hope this helps

My Whirlpool Duet Washer #GHW900LW1 does not pull the hot water.


Sorry this answer is about 1 month late, but in case you're still having the issue, it is likely due to 1 of 2 possibilities (or combination of both).
Most likely, the small inlet screen, located on the back, (where the hot water hose enters the machine) is clogged. This is a common problem that restricts the flow of hot water into the machine.
To check or clean this, just unscrew the hot water hose where it enters the washer. It sits just inside that fitting.

The other possibility is a bad or clogged inlet valve. The inlet valve controls the flow of hot and cold water into the machine. It is opened and closed via an electric solenoid (part of the intake valve unit).
The inlet valve is the same unit that houses the screen I previously mentioned, and is just inside the back panel of the washer, where the two inlet hoses thread onto.

Hi

Error code FH appears when No water is detected entering machine or Pressure switch trip is not detected. If after 30 seconds the control does not detect water entering machine and then valves will be turned off and the error code will be displayed. Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display. If there is no water entering the unit then make sure that the inlet valves are working fine. You may need to check the continuity at the inlet valves. If the valves are fine then check whether inlet water hoses as they might be plugged. Also check for inlet water screen at the valve. However, if the water is entering into the washer then the Drain pump might not be working. Also inspect the Pressure Switch hose whether it is in good condition and properly connected to Tub and Pressure switch. Also check hoses for leak and inspect the flow meter. Hope this helps...

Water not entering dishwasher. Worked fine one


The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. First Check to see if the valve is getting water. Make sure it’s not clogged. There is a screen on the inside of the valve, this sometimes gets clogged up with debris. Check to see if you get power to valve when unit is put into operation may take a couple minutes to start a fill. If you have power and it’s not clogged up replace the valve .If you have no power to the water inlet valve check float switch. This can be done by checking the continuity. There is a video of this at http://appliancehelponline.com/dishfloatwaterinletvideo.html this will walk you checking the water inlet valve and the float switch. It may be a different model but the testing procedure will be the same. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations for most models. All parts come with installation instructions.
