My dishwasher will not fill with water: This is often the fill valve. You can test the fill valve coil for continuity with a ohm meter, no needle movement = bad fill valve. You can also test the fill valve for 120 volts at the fill valve with a volt meter, power there and no fill = bad fill valve. No 120 volts there, you will have to trace power back to find the trouble maker. Test things like the float and float switch, wires and timer. Fill valves are very bad for working once or twice and then quitting, if your dishwasher fills the first and second fill cycles and then no more water through the rest of the cycle, replace the fill valve. You will need to remove the access panels to get at the fill valve. Dishwasher fill valves also have a screen built into the valve entrance, this can also get all clogged up and need to be cleaned.

Low humming noise coming from the dishwasher when start no water going into machine?

First you will need a tester , that has 120 volt setting remove the lower cover and you should see a water valve sometimes they put them in the back of the unit also , but always near the floor, with this unit plugged in and unit turned on so that it should be filing with water, check the wires on the water valve to see if you are getting the 120 volts , if you have the power but the unit is not filling the water valve is bad , if you dont have power at the valve then the timer or door switch is bad this is all there is to this unit , I bet on a bad water valve here is a place to get parts and as always be careful when worjking with unit with power , if you need to replace anything turn main power off before seviceing unit , I have found several washers the water valve wa sjust fill of dirt , cleaned it and it worked just fine , if you need parts go here , email me at

I have a Miele Built-In Icognito 658/850 SCVi. The intake/drain light is on, and I have followed the directions in the manual. The light turns off after I follow the directions and the unit turns on but...

Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink, it is an electromagnet valve, located at the pipe's entrance to the machine) 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.

Isn't getting any water to you turn it on

Check the water inlet solenoids...they often get "stuck" a careful "Whack" with something suitable, will often "Un-stick" them. Otherwise you have some sort of fault, that is NOT allowing the water to go in to the unit, because the machine has a fault.

My Indesit D63 dishwasher hums but doesn't fill with water

Most likely your intake solenoid.

Here is how you check.

Start with the simple things and work your way from there. You will be amazed how many people call a plumber who flips a breaker or simply clears a stuck float valve (for $80 minimal fee).

If you are not getting water into the unit but you have lights on and you hear clicking and the timer runs and things are trying to work then we know you have power and the timer is running.

No water coming to the unit.

Make sure nobody shut the supply line off. There should be a tap under the sink on the water supply line to the unit.

Turn the unit on an listen at the base for a click as the water supply solenoid (electric switch) opens. No click?

Check the solenoid. Remove the machine from under the counter. There will be screws holding it to the underside of the counter. You may have to lower the legs to get it out. They turn with a wrench to lower.

Under the unit where the water supply line comes in is a solenoid switch it opens to allow the water to enter the machine. Water comes in under household pressure (it is not pumped in by the unit). Chances are it is faulty. Replace it as it can't be serviced.

Still no luck?

The unit is guided by a timer. The timer tells the machine what to do and for how long. If it fails the unit will stop or jam in one cycle. If you have a physical switch the you turn to select the type of wash cycle check it. If you are all touch control then replace the whole board or machine.

To check the switch open the control panel above and use a voltage tester to see if you have current at each cycle point. Cleaning sometimes helps if not replace.

Hope this helps you. Please rate this tip for me.

Hooked up new dishwasher and no water to it when turn it on.

Sounds like you're a real DIY (do-it-yourselfer)....great!

Try these steps:

Turn off the water supply valve to the dishwasher. Disconnect the water to the fill valve. Place a shallow pan under the water line and open the water valve slowly. If you have water flowing up to this point, check the power to dishwasher. If no water, check the water supply and anything that might keep water from flowing.

If you have water, then look at the inlet screen to the water fill valve. Sometimes, when a new water supply is hooked up, some sedimentation occurs and gets into the inlet screen at the water valve. Check this and clean it out as needed. Not all units have these screens.

Make sure you have removed any shipping plugs or other items that could prevent the unit from operating.

Water coming in stops short of the proper level - not enough water comming in to clean properly. I have to add water.

most dishwashers fill level is determined by time.
If the water pressure is to low, or the flow is restricted by sand or rust cloging the water valve, the unit will not fill with enough water to clean the dishes.

if you are willing to try, and you can use basic hand tools, you might be able to clean a clogged water valve.
first make sure the ELECTRICAL POWER to the unit is up-plugged or turned off. turn off water supply.

Valve is located under unit most can be reached by removing panel on lower front of unit. disconnect water pipe at valve and look for a filter screen inside the valve, remove it, clean it, reinstall it. now reconnect water pipe, and turn water and power back on look under unit and check for water leaks before reinstalling panel.

Dishwasher not starting when door closes

What your saying is suggesting a water supply issue. The Model number you've given can not be found on the Neff website.

You will need to disconnect power, turn the water supply off (under sink or behind dishwasher), disconnect the water line, put the end of the hose in a bucket or cup, turn water back on slowly and make sure water flows. Turn back off. If water flows -

Then check that there is not a restriction in the water solenoid valve. If you know how to use a multimeter, check the water valve solenoid for continuity.

Plug the unit back in, and initiate a wash cycle, and watch for voltage applied to the water solenoid valve. If you get voltage, you should hear the valve open.
Power the unit off, connect the water line, and repower the unit. Check again if water does or doesnt flow.

Let me know what you find.

Water fills bottom of washer but doesn't get sprayed around

you must have been eating out for a long time now. 6 months with no use will cause the wash pump to seize up and not spray water. if you can get to the motor and try to turn it by hand and that may get the shaft freed up and allow it to turn again.
the biggest problem is to get to the motor you will have to remove the unit from your cabinet and then you can reach the motor.
once you can get to the motor turn the shaft and then hook it back up.
this is the problem with these units, you have to pull it out to get to anything.
when they work they are nice but when they break they are a pain in the a---- you get my idea!!

Water is not getting hot enough to wash dishes

Is this a home unit or commercial unit? Most home units use the hot water supplied by your hot water heater so to get it hotter you need to turn that up.

The motor runs but no water, with water turned on

You could have a possible fill valve problem. Remove the lower kick plate in the front. The fill valve will be located somewhere near the front of the unit on the left hand side. With the circuit breaker turned off, and water supply line turned off, remove the water line to the fill valve and make sure there's nothing obstructing water flow. Sometimes if you use teflon tape you can get a piece of it covering the opening of the line. Or, if you have hard water, you can get corrosive mineral build ups blocking water flow. Carefully remove the electrical connection to the valve and check the connector tabs on the fill solenoid to make sure they aren't corroded. Reconnect everything and try to run the unit with the circuit breaker and water turned back on. I have experienced on a couple of occasion where merely removing the connector and plugging it back in corrected the problem. If the unit still does not fill, you can carefully check for voltage at the fill valve solenoid. You should be able able to get a reading with the plug connected and it should read 120vac. If no voltage is getting to the valve, you have a wiring problem between the valve and the timer. If you have the proper voltage, more than likely you have a bad fill valve. Good luck and I hope this helps you.
