When in the wash phase, listen for a low hum near the wash pump. if you hear this it indicates the wash pump capacitor is faulty or something jammed in the pump.after that you will have to access the wash pump and check if there is any supply to it

Check that your supply faucet is open, Check if there is a screen in the supply line, these can become blocked due to scale deposits from the mains. If there is no screen check that the inlet solenoid valve has not got blocked. If none of the above help, check that there is power getting to the solenoid valve when the machine is supposed to be on the fill cycle. If no power is betting to the valve, the timer might ba faulty. (You can try hand filling the machine and see if it goes through a cycle, at least up to the rinse stage, this will tell you if the timer control is working).
If you feel that there is water not being pumped out, remove the bottom strainers and make sure that there is nothing obstructing the outlet pipe and the pump. If possible back flush through the outlet pipe and try draining the machine again before using it again.

My dishwasher isn't working, it fills with water then doesn't do anything. The water doesn't seem to be hot. Does it need to be heated before starting the washing action?

Try running your sink water till it's hot and then running the wash cycle. Not all washes have a quick heat element.

First thing you must check, when dishwasher not washing dishes, is how hot is your water. Water has to be atleast 120 degrees F. If you're water isn't that hot you need to adjust your water heater..

Dishwasher will not advance beyond water fill stage

when it fills and water stops /the motor will start up in a min.or so. you should be able to hear the motor & water or just a hum then the motor will click and quit .. the seak kit came with a tool to center the pump housing properly / if this was done it should work. unplug motor and run thru cycle if it finishes cycle timer ok and pump is still problem . the motor may have been damaged from the first problem and water got in top brg. ck motor see if it will turn

Fills with water, sounds like it starts to pump water then stops, then start again. It attempts to start pumping water 3 or 4 times them turns off leaving the water in the tub. I have read about the water...

you have a wash pump problem. can be 1 of 3 things. most likely something is caught in the pump impelor if not the wash pump motor may be faulty or ceized or it could be the capacitor for the wash pump motor is faulty. you can try removing the wash pump yourself and check the impelor if it spins freely then you will have a motor problem.
hope this helped
