You should have a little round white mushroom looking piece on the inside bottom front right corner of the dishwasher tap it and see if it goes down and then it should work

Wan't take on water after first rinse


see this steps and fix it. God bless you


Water Inlet Valve

The dishwasher has an electrical water valve called a water inlet valve. If the dishwasher won't fill with water, the water inlet valve might be defective. These valves are not repairable and will have to be replaced.

Float

The float assembly is normally inside the dishwasher near the door on the floor of the dishwasher. If something gets stuck underneath it and holds the float assembly up, the dishwasher won't fill with water. If the float assembly moves freely up and down, the float switch might be defective.

Float Switch

The float switch is actuated by the float assembly. It is a protection device designed to prevent the dishwasher from overfilling. If the dishwasher won't fill with water, it may be because this float switch is defective or stuck.

Water Supply Problem

The dishwasher is connected to the hot water supply from the house. Check to be sure the household water supply valve is turned on. Over time, calcium deposits can build up in the water supply valve or in the small filter screen inside the water inlet valve. The water supply line may need to be removed from the water inlet valve of the dishwasher, then run some water into a bucket to see if there is enough pressure. Be certain to turn off the water before working on the water line.

Whirlpool DU943PWKQO BUILT IN DISHWASHER WILL NOT FILL


It sounds like the inlet valve for the hot water , if you turn the water off remove the two wires going to the valve remove the valve, you have to remove the water hoses I think they are 1/2 " wrench, it comes a part easy it may just be clog up with junk , be carful of the rubber gasget , this is an easy fix I am sure you can do this , also always turn power off first !!!

Whirlpool Dishwasher Model Du850SWPB3 Changed out Water valve, float switch, Still doesn't fill with water. D/w runs in all cycles , just NO WATER.


Hello,

What ya need to check is for power coming into the water valve from the control board by using a mulitmeter set to measure ac volts and when the dishwasher is running...during the times the unit is supposed to fill their should be power into the water valve.

If ya do not have power into the valve the control is going to be the problem,if ya do indeed have electric power into the valve during the fill times ya need to check the house water supply and make sure GOOD water pressure is available at THE VALVE

We have a Sears Ultra Wash III dishwasher, model 665.1677993, bought in October, 1995. It is not filling with enough water to get the dishes clean. I took the water valve out and looked at it and it...


There should be another letter after the p in your model number. If it's just a B then there are no parts available for that model. Typically a dishwasher will fill for 90 seconds or more. One minute or less sounds like you have a control board issue. I don't work on much older dishwashers, but I have run into this problem with newer Whirlpools. And it usually checks out to be the board. At fourteen years old I would think about getting something new. I'm not trying to sound bad, its just your running into the problem of not being able to get parts...hope this helps...
