Question about Dishwashers
If there's no water entering your dishwasher, check these:
Water-inlet valve Thewater-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve isdefective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually locatedbehind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's thedevice with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, arubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it.
Float switch Thefloat switch is a small electrical switch that's located right belowthe dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of thedishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills thedishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float getscaught or trapped in the raised position, the water can't enter thedishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it.

When the Dishwasher won't fill you'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the float switch assembly. When the water fills your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages. If the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the float switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.
