My Kenmore dishwasher does not fill with water when switch is turned on. What could be the problem?


First thing to distinguish is which motor are you hearing working is it the wash motor or is it the drain motor. Describing what you have above I would tend to think that it would be the drain motor that you are hearing on the drain pump itself. This happens for a couple reasons in a dishwasher. One your Float switch could be defective. Two you could have a leak condition in the unit and the drain pump is trying to pump out the water due to this issue. Three you could have a clogged drain line or exit port where your drainlines goes into your sink or in the drain line itself. Four would be a clog in the drain pump itself or the impellar of the pump is not turning. How much water do you have on the inside of the machine and is the machine draining if it is draining then I would look at the float switch first in the unit. I will await your reply as to your finds and if you have any further questions message me back
Thank you

Newer dishwasher and actuaslly says in manual do not be alarmed if you cannot hear dishwasher as it is very quiet. Well mine is the exact opposite. It is so loud. Sounds like the motor is in overload....


I would suspect there is something stuck in either your wash motor or drain pump. If the noise happens throughout the whole cycle, it's likely the wash motor, but if it only happens on start up and periodically thoughtout the cycle, it's the drain pump. The drain pumps are known however to get noiser after a few months, in which case I would have the drain pump replaced.

Water not pumping into dishwasher


I first checked the water valve in the dishwasher. It was working properly. The overflow or water level sensor had become stuck in the 'high level' position, thus telling the washer that it was already full of water. I corrected that and it began working properly. As for water in the bottom of the dishwasher that didn't seem to be draining completely - I turned the timer to a point in the cycle where it would drain, making sure I turned the washer off before it cycled back to the 'fill or rinse' cycle. I think the water had accumulated because of the timing of the cycles getting out of sync with the water level in the washer.

Bosch dishwasher is stuck on drain cycle


cause is water in the bottom tray which operates an anti-flood switch and all machine will do is drain.
disconnect from mains
remove bottom panel and mop out water and it will work. if fault re-occurs, then you have a leak which you will have to identify

G865 - Constantly draining


Your problem is a water leak.  There are a couple of rubber seals that are required to correct the problem.. When the seal leaks it accumulates in a tray in the bottom where a sensor turns on the pump when water is present.  If you remove the lower access panel and reach in you should see the accumulated water.  I had a repair tech repair mine.

hi there,

check to see if there is anything stuck in the pump. if there is nothing and the problem persists, have the technician replace the drain pump.

Leaking water on floor during drain cycle


First the source of the leak needs to be identified. pull the machine out from under the counter and remove the left side panel exposing the blue float assembly. Turn the machine on and observe the fill cycle. if water comes out anywhere on the fill mechanism then the inlet valve needs to be replaced. once the machine has filled and begun to cycle cancel the program and drain the unit. observe closly where the leak is happening. a leak during drain usually indicated a leaking drain hose.

DISHWASHER IS LEAKING A LOT OF WATER


I had the same problem with my machine - ie lots of water coming out front about two thirds of the way through the cycle - engineer (local and very reliable) knew as soon as he came in that I had started bying Powerball 5 dishwasher tablets - they produce too much foam (try opening the door during the cycle and see the amount of foam) and it therefore comes out of the overflow parts on the door. I tried Magnum 5 and got the same problem. Now I stick to either Asda's own basic (not the 5) or I buy the Magnum ones and cut them in half. Has never leaked since!
