No water filling up in the dishwasher when programme set
When dishwasher switched on, you can hear the unit making nosises, however no water fills with in the unit. I have checked all pipe work and there seems to be no blockages. The dishwasher is only 2 years old

Re: No water filling up in the dishwasher when programme...
My instinct would be to replace the water inlet valve without even trying to prove whether that is the real problem. The valve is the plastic unit on the back wall of the cabinet that your cold water hose screws onto.
I think your dishwasher takes a Universal 90 degree Single inlet cold water solenoid valve, which you can find unbranded on the net for under £10.
Provided you remember to turn the power and water off before you start, there are no hidden surprises in the replacement procedure: Remove the inlet hose, undo the screws attaching the valve to the cabinet, unplug the two wires, unclamp and remove the hose inside the dishwasher, then reverse the process to reassemble. After assembly, check that the hose to valve coupling is watertight.
Granted, the problem might conceivably lie elsewhere, but the valve is so much more likely a culprit, so cheap to buy and so easy to fit that you might as well change it on spec.

If the pump is constantly running the easy way to check is to open the door and switch the appliance on if there is a noise than the anti flood system has been activated which means you either have a leak somewhere in the appliance or you have been visited by a rodent which loves to eat the polystyrene anti flood float the easy way to get your dishwasher working is to take off the rhs panel two screws torx t 20 lift off the top and then drain the water from the appliance in the space next to the motor housing this will get your dishwasher working but it wont fix the leak good luck that would need to be done by a pro is it can be complecated depending on where the leak is

Check to make sure that the solenoid for filling unit is operational. It appears to be stuck in the open position. Also check to make sure that the wiring to the solenoid is good and that it is receiving power.
Hello, Theres a Floater inside the tub protecting against overflow. when it is
pushed up or stuck by debris, and does not fall
down to its inactive position, it can prevent water from filling. So be sure there is no debris and move the floater up and down until it falls down in its normal position.
Also dishwashers can lose their pump prime and will not fill with water if
there is no priming water in the bottom of the unit. To solve this problem, you must add
several quarts of water to the unit. Let it settle down in the bottom
until it stops going down. Start the washer and you will hear this
water pump out of the drain and the unit will now fill with fresh water..
Where does the clicking sound seem to be coming from? Start the machine and when it's filled with water, try to identify where the clicking noise is emanating from. I suggest putting you ear next to the programme selector and start/stop switch and see if you can hear it more loudly/clearly.
Sounds like a faulty control module to me. Try the above and report back . . .
The float switch in the tank is bad,also if water only trickles in your fill valve is going bad which will not let it fill all the way to start wash cycle. Fill tub with pot of water to raise float, if wash cycle starts,replace fill valve,if not,replace float switch.
Most possible reasons that the door switch or timer unit is defective.
The dishwasher should heat the water to about 55 C as the heating cycle starts. In these cycle, the dishwasher pauses after has filled with water and wait for the water to reach the temperature.
If the water isn't being heated (because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues.

sounds like your machine is not taking in any water at all, which is the first thing the dishwasher wants to do on all programme settings.The constant whirring noise you refer to will be the water valve trying to take water into your machine.As yours isn't filling in the first place the programme cannot progress without water and it will just sit there whirring.Anyway, to resolve this matter I would check the fill hose which goes from the back of machine to your cold water pipe in your kitchen/utility, in case somebody has turned off supply.where the flexi hose meets the copper supply pipe there should be a thumbturn shut/open valve, turn this 90 degrees or a quarter turn and if you here a rush of water for a split second then you have fixed it.At this point try setting away a programme to see if water is going into dishwasher. If not have a bucket ready and unscrew the flexi hose altogether to make sure water is travelling past shut/open valve.If not you need a new shut/open valve.If water is able to pass this valve reconnect to dishwasher turn shut/open valve a quarter turn to open flow of water again,test machine on any programme again ,if it fills then your sorted, if not it must be your dishwashers internal water valve that will need replacing.Not a major job (located behind fill hose) but make sure electric and water supplies are off first before dabbling and write down your machines make and model number before shopping for part. GOOD LUCK.
