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

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

Hi

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.

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...

Larry,
The float is generally for overflow conditions and will interrupt power to the fill valve solenoid.
If you are not filling completely in the time allowed by the timer, it is most likely a flow restriction in the water supply. Barring other obvious restrictions, the fill valve has filter screens on the inlet side of the fill valve, which is generally the cause of your symptoms. Be careful if you attempt to clean the screens, as the fill valves are very sensitive to debris, and can become stuck open if sediment gets past the screen. I usually replace the fill valve to avoid future problems.
Hope this helps.
